Knitting again at last! April 29, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — hellcat @ 1:40 pm

Well, with all the stuff going on around here, I haven’t done much knitting latey. But the last few days I have been working to get the Ernie sweater ready to stitch up for this Wednesday, because Wednesdays are knitting nights and I want to make sure I have some experts on hand when I start. Just have to do the second sleeve by then. As well as clean my whole apartment-knitting is at my place this week!
Also, last night my fellow derby coach and I met with a potential new roller girl. She was very nice and will make a fine addition to the team, I think. I can’t wait to finally get back on my skates-it’s been months and months since I even had them on my feet! Stupid winter and stupid lack of indoor venues=no practicing for us 😦
Here’s some pics of some recent yarn acquisitions and the ernie sweater in progress.

The Quest for Yarn-in pictures!

Filed under: Uncategorized — hellcat @ 11:43 am
Well, since my friend Lisa and I are still unemployed from work, and most of our friends are not, we decided to do a fun little field trip on Wednesday while they were all at work, down to Gaspereau Valley to the yarn shop! Weeeeee!
This is an old textile plant in Windsor that is being turned into condos. Very cool!

That mountain waaaay in the distance is where the Blomidon Look-off is-see pics further down!

The yarn shop! This red barn has animals behind it(see next couple of pics) and there’s another barn off to the right(not in the pic) that has all the yarn and wool and fleeces and a dog!!!! Yay!

This way to wool! Lisa is very excited 🙂

Farm animals! Weee!

Yarn barn! Mmmmmm….yarn…..Lisa is reluctant to leave!

Yarny goodness!

Drool…….bathtub full of brightly dyed fleecy goodness!!! It felt soooooo soft!

Blomidon Look-off! It was so worth the extra driving!

The one pic of me, because *I* hold the camera 99% of the time 😛 At Blomidon Look-off

If you are ever in Nova Scotia, or you live here-you HAVE to go to Gaspereau Valley Fibers. Seriously. I want to move there 😛 ha ha ha ha ha ha

One of me and Lisa that was on the boy’s camera. I look like a cow in this-but I always think that, so nothing new there. I suppose the empire wasted shirt doesn’t do me any favors!
😛 ha ha h ah aha ha I want some llamas in my apartment. They’re funny 🙂
