Good Grief, I've disappeared.

Betcha didn't think I'd ever be back, huh?  Well, I needed to keep the lace club announcement up and in front for a couple of weeks.  But now I can relax a little with it all.

Lots of folks are joining up, and it is the best thing that could happen in my little business.  I'm so energized with this.  Making lists, organizing my yahoo emails so that I can find my subscribers without having to wade through the entire mess, checking in with my poor test knitter, who is suffering the travails of correcting my instructions.  That kind of stuff.  Makes my head spin.

Oh, wait, my head is spinning.  Ah, vertigo, my favorite head spinning moment.  It's back replete with a tummy unhappiness.  At least the tummy is feeling better, but the room wants to move around every time I change position.  I love benign positional vertigo; it makes my day go so well.  NOT.  Eh, who cares?  It'll go away sooner or later.  It's not bad enough for a dr visit, so I just have to ride it out.  If anyone out there wants it, I'll be glad to send it to you for free.  I'll even pay you a couple of bucks to take it from me.  But here's the rule:  once you have it, you cannot send it back.  No backsies!  Nope!

I haven't dyed yarn in about 3 weeks.  Can you believe it?  I'm busy prepping my skeins for the club, and I have enough yarn dyed for my own stash.  I am getting a yen for a violet or purple or grape scarf or shawlette, and need to dye for that, but not until the head behaves.  And then, the big dyeing takes place.  I have to say that this is a great way for me to do business.  I'm dyeing for a purpose rather than playing with colors.  A very different mode and a new business plan, but it's working for me.  Who knew I even had a business plan?  Apparently I did, and now have a new model.  Such fun, indeed.

Knitting and hooking?  Are you kidding?  Every effort is going into the first shipment.  The Hubbo tells me that if I throw everything into the first package, there will be nothing left ever again.   He could be right.  I have more ideas that I just have to try.  The brain is getting a workout, and I can't show you a single pic.

Hooking?  Gone bye-bye.  The mood came and left.  Given that I have 5 blankies in progress, I'm hoping that the crochet mode will come back this summer.  Right now I'm way too busy to even think about it.  I'm knitting and that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I can't leave you without at least a couple of pics.  These will have to be kaleidoscope pics.  Not a hardship at all.

Oh, and the Hubbo bought a gorgeous, fully-loaded Honda C-RV at a garage sale.  38,000 miles in perfect condition.  And he bargained (the Hubs being the Hubs) for an American Girl bed and an Ott light, and who-knows-what-else to be tossed into the deal.   Made my head spin.  Uh, didn't I just go through my head spinning rant?

Off to knit and not move my position.  Oh, and folks not from northern NJ, no, we have no snow.  We've left all that mess for the mid-western folks.  Minneapolis, home of Miss P and family, got 20 inches and she's had no school Mon or today.  Unheard of!  I knew there was a reason I don't live there.

Linda W - If you need something, tell him, and he'll find it.  It's uncanny.  However, I did find the warping board, but that's only because he didn't know what one looked like!

Scrabblequeen - Yes, he's definitely a keeper.  My Honey, the Schmutz Meister!

Congrats on the new car. From what little I know about them, the CRV is a great car. And, of course he bartered, with stuff thrown in. That's what life's about. lol Extras you didn't even know you needed.

Wow! What a man! You really got a bargain when you chose that one. Pretty pics, and thanks for teasing me about the light n dark thing....I want, I want, I want...but trying so hard to be good.
