I'm Moving

So come on over and check out my new spot. I just couldn't handle some of the bl*gger problems I was having anymore. Plus I'm cleaning out the house, so it was time to clean the blog. You'll find me over on wordpress now. Same old knitterbunny, new digs. :)

House Cleaning

Well, not literally. I've forgotten to update you on some things, or I just didn't want to fit it in a post. So, today is dedicated to updating you all on how things are going.

1. Remember way back when, when I joined runagogo? Well, I'm happy to say that I made the 100 mile mark by April 1, actually I made it by Mar. 30, but who's counting? ;) I even signed up for round 2 and have managed 21 miles for this round so far. I love Wesley. :)

2. Remember that sweater that I started for myself in oh, I don't know January-ish? Still haven't finished it. And the shawl that I'm working on that is partially a secret? Still not done. Oh, and the secret project that I'm working on, the one where I ordered yarn from Sheri at the Loopy Ewe and couldn't show you it? Still working on that one too, but I have high hopes that I can show you something soon.

3. I'm making socks. Really cool socks made oout of STR in the Henpecked colorway. I should be done with those soon and we should see Episode 4 of the Sock Hunter soon after that. :)

4. Will is already dating someone else. He started six days after ending our relationship. Rat bastard. I'm doing ok though. Everyone says that hindsight is 20/20 and looking back, I should have dumped that deadweight 3 1/2 years ago. Not only that, but I'm sooooooo thankful that we never got married. Did I mention that he thought that I knitblogged to "RANT. That's all you do right?" (direct quote on that one, grrrrrrrr)

He didn't understand my passion for the knitting, which was about the only passion left in our relationship by the time he broke it off. (smacks head! Should have dumped him a long time before he dumped me)

Also, and now I am ranting, I am a very strong minded, independent, strong willed woman. I am proud of this fact. If you can't speak your mind to me, why are we in a relationship? When I talk to you, I don't expect you to agree with everything I say (or disagree for that matter), but how am I supposed to know that you are bothered if you don't tell me? (end rant)

5. I have muy muy mas conejitos (baby bunnies). They are so darn cute it hurts to look at them. I really need to post pictures. Keep reminding me and maybe I'll remember to take pictures. :)

6. I adore my stinky dog, but he really needs a bath. As in, he's starting to burn my nostrils after he takes a run in the yard.

7. I really need Sheri to take a short break from updating the Loopy Ewe, she needs a vacation, and I need a week where I'm not tempted by all of the goodies. ;)

8. I need to spin more, a lot more, because I now have two fleeces and I need to spin up one of them before the end of the year. Seriously people, how can I keep buying fiber when I'm not spinning very much?

If you made it this far, thanks! I won't be blogging much in the next few days b/c I have two projects due next week and I'm judging the NATIONAL Dutch Show (I'm so excited!) this weekend in Kalamazoo, MI. This is my first national show and it's the breed that I raise, so I'm really nervous too.

Wow! What a long post, I'm off to work on my projects. Have a good night. :)

I'm a Loopy Groupie!

With this being my sixth order at the Loopy Ewe, I am now an official Loopy Groupie! :) My new status meant a cool Loopy Ewe tote bag and a skein of OnLine sock yarn. I've never tried the OnLine yarn and while it is definitely not a skein in my usual colors, I know that someone will love a pair of socks made from it very much.

So what exactly did my sixth purchase consist of? Why Apple Laine Apple Pie (in dusk? perhaps? I'm too lazy to go check the tag), Claudia Handpainted (in Oops!), Scarlet Fleece It's Tubular X 2 (in Claret and I LOVE it), and the so very bright OnLine. ;) (Can anyone read the label on this brand?????)

Sock Hunter Episode 3: Common Bush Kiwi

Day fifteen . . . I've been stalking the Common Bush Kiwi* and finally captured a picture of a pair in the bush. It seems that I've found a new variety as this is a never before documented Baby Cable Rib Common Bush Kiwi.

I sedated the pair to get a closer look, and found the detail of the baby cable found amongst the ribbing was particularly beautiful when paired with the slight variegation of the yarn. I will definitely be watching this pair for signs of any additional Baby Cable Rib Common Bush Kiwi.

Each additional day spent in the field is yeilding new and exciting finds. My specimen collection has nearly outgrown its container and I fear that subsequent finds shall force me to purchase more containment. In hindsight, my addiction to the Loopy Ewe may have precipitated my fantastic finds as well as my containment problem.

Day sixteen . . . remember to buy more containers. ;)

*US 2 Birch DPNs, Baby Cable Rib from Sensational Socks, twisted German cast-on, Heel Flap (S1, K1 repeat across row, S1, purl across row), my usual 4-point toe decrease, Scarlet Fleece It's Tubular X 2 in Kiwi (yarn from the Loopy Ewe)

No Knitting Content Today

This is what the girls and I enjoyed on Friday night when we got home. It was as tasty as it looks and the sentiment is real.
My girls at Baker's Peak here in town made this little cake for me. I told them the whole sordid story and decided right then and there to buy a little cake for myself. When they asked me what I wanted on it, this was the first word that came to mind. Appropriate, no? It was a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting in case you were wondering. :)
