Yarn and fiber stores should be totally off limits to me, sadly I find natural fibers irresistible. This glorious 2 oz bit of silk and Merino blend came home with me. I spun it with my trusty little walnut hand spindle intothis incredibly soft two ply yarn.
My sis and I spent the weekend in Salt Lake City. We had a wonderful time, the weather was glorious and it could not have been any better. As sick as she is, she runs circles around me. Chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia and a bum knee slows me down, I don't notice it as much in my normal life but trying to walk for miles and keep up with her really underlined how much I suck. So I am trying to be more like her and get more done, like the energizer bunny she is, some people have a goal, "what would Jesus do" for now on my goal is "what would Alaine do".
My mother used to tell me, " oh if you could only be like your sister" and while growing up I tried to be like her, it did not work very well. She is organized and classy and everything I am not. I am disorganized, dysfunctional, totally poor white trash, oddly and intensely creative, chronically curious and in general, quite strange. No wonder I drove my mother crazy.
