Camel

camel


Isn't it lovely. Pure camel. Camel is interesting to spin. It's similar to alpaca in one way; it's heavy in weight, so I was disappointed in the yardage. It's slippery, but not like alpaca. I think alpaca is as slick as snot by itself. Still, it is pretty.

Sometimes it pays to up at 6 on the weekend. Today was one of them. The sky was just beautiful with lines of pinks and blues of every hue.

Superbowl Sunday

Yeah, I'll be awatchin'. The Packers are in and that makes it a shoe in for me to sit and root on my time. My dad would be rolling in his grave since a Packers fan he was not. As a kid I never understood the game, therefore, I asked too many questions before I got the "go to your room" speech. Its okay. I was never really offended. I still don't understand most of the calls, but at least I can follow the game.

Of course game day is also known as, dinner in the crock pot and Kim crafting all day too. They sort of go together. Dinner is a throw together of chicken broth, great northern beans, potatoes, celery, carrots, onions, and a yellow pepper because it had to be used. Later I add in the ham otherwise the ham just get too dark looking and I don't want to eat it. Of course this brain storm might be a tried it, but never again, or delicious. Keep you posted on that note.

On the crafting side, I have a pair of mittens that I'm sorting out. No real pattern, but I have enough memory about mittens to know where to go, however, the first one is a little big. I am deciding if I need to start over with fewer stitches or just call it roomy. I'm thinking the later. They fit great around my wrist and are a little big through the hand. Kinda sad really.

Lastly, I noticed that my Black Belt (huge fish) is moving the rocks around the tank again. The snot. Maybe I move them all back where they are suppose to be, so I can really piss him off. Truly silly I know, but then he could leave the rocks where they go too instead of building mountains in the tank.

Twists and turns, Family Jewels clue 2 is finished. Let me tell ya. This is really pretty. Looks harder than it is. Just time consuming. Two at a time is the only way these babies would have a match.
