The life of a traveling, reading, writing, spining and knitting shepherdess.

Houston, we have pictures!  This is going to be a rather lengthy post, not because I have a lot of prose to share with you, rather a LOT of pictures.

So here is a picture of the spinning wheel, oiled and having already seen action.  I took this picture out in the middle of my street, since my lawn was still wet with dew and I didn’t want the wheel to get all wet.  There was a guy from the cable company down the street and he gave me an odd look.  I’m sure that if I wasn’t already known as the crazy lady, I surely am after this morning!

I also took a picture of the Babies r’ Us flag out on some of my neighbors ferns along the street.  Yes, I was traipsing up and down my street with a spinning wheel and baby blankets this morning.  Don’t you wish you lived in my neighborhood?

This baby blanket was my travel project while I was in Morocco.  It was originally a WIP, but I finished it tonight (even wove in the ends) at my Hooker’s Meet-up tonight. It is good to finish a project!

These are to colors that I have chosen for my next traveling baby blanket.  They are a change from my usual Bernat Cotton Tots yarn. Instead, I have chosen I Love This Cotton yarn from Hobby Lobby in some decidedly un-baby colors.  I figure someone out there will get tired of all the pastels and like a change.  Plus, this yarn is SO SOFT!  I fell in love with it when I touched it.  I’ll let you know how it works up….

Here are some pictures of tonights Hooker’s meet-up at the Panera in the Fashion Square Mall….Becca and CatherineDavid Crocheting Plastic Bags    Tyra and Brigit

Chris and Michael

It was another great night with the Hookers. Michael taught us all how to do the Tunisian Crochet stitch.  He’s always a very patient and good teacher and tonight he showed-off those skills by teaching us as a (rowdy) group.  As you can see, we have a few male hookers in our group, and a wide range of ages. It is definitely not a bunch of little old ladies sitting around drinking tea!  Tonight we discussed (among lots of other things) a penis rating (he gets 4 wieners up!) for men, Tyra’s drinking binoculars, David’s cross-dressing in Germany (it was apparently some sort of costume thing, but I don’t know….) and the best ways to cut up plastic bags to crochet them together.  We are definitely an odd group!

Anyway, I have more pictures of non-crochet stuff to share with you tomorrow.


P.S.  I don’t know why the computer keeps messing with the captions and stuff.  I will try to fix them all when my tech support is in the same time zone as I am….
