Tonight was Yarn Therapy night at Infusion Tea. God knows that I needed some sort of therapy after the day that Monday turned out to be (the cat peeing in the bag was just the straw that broke the camels back [though if that made the camel easier to comb so I could spin some of that nice, expensive stuff….]). Anyway, Terri’s group is growing by leaps and bounds and much fun was had by all. Lily and I got there extra early so that we could eat as they have most excellent food there as well as tea. Of course I brought my big-assed camera with me and of course I completely forgot to use it once again. I know, I really need to start using it in order to justify lugging it everywhere. Oh well, one of these days…..
Today Chris went and looked at a house for us to rent. I am not too optimistic about us getting it as there were some people looking at it on Saturday that seemed really into it. It would be nice though as it has a 2 1/2 acre yard and a couple of greenhouses and is nice and big. Really perfect for us. I am getting tired of these great houses getting grabbed before we even have a chance to look at them. I am glad that Chris is actually there now so that I can start sending him out immediately to look at properties. It is making me nervous that it seems that our stuff is more on the go than the pets and I are currently!
Lily and I went looking for running shoes for her at the local Sports Authority. It happens to be next door to the PetSmart (which I needed for some bird supplies as that stuff is ALL IN THE UK NOW) and, oops, Jo-Ann’s. so we bopped on over (I mean, we both had coupons so it was meant to be, right?) and I introduced her to the Deborah Norville yarn that has just recently shown up there. It seems pretty nice, I’ve got a couple of skeins of the sock yarn and one of the worsted weight. But what’s up with this? Is the new claim to fame not if you have a fragrance named after you but rather a yarn line?!?!? All I can say is that if there is ever a BSG line of yarn I am so there. I can kinda see it now. The “Six” yarn will be a sock yarn that is drop dead gorgeous with a serious don’t-fuck-with-me nylon core. The “Laura” is a cashmere blend in sportweight, all class. The “Starbuck” yarn is a worsted weight in the colors of yellow, red and blue. I’m not sure what the “Apollo” yarn would be….maybe a nice wool sportweight? I do know what the “Baltar” yarn would be, a fun fur (they always seem so straight when you start working with them but they always end-up in a mess!). For whatever reason, I keep seeing the “D’Anna” yarn as a chunky weight nubby thing with lots of interesting quirks. What would the “Admiral Adama” yarn be? Has to be wool I think given his affection towards the classics. I would think muted colors…. Worsted?
