My neighbor thought I was nuts this past fall when I guarded these skeins drying out on the fence like a mean Pit Bull. There is about 14 ounces here at $7.20 per oz undyed and I used to sell dyed braids for $18.00 per 2 oz. You can imagine how much 14 oz of spun fiber would go for especially as this is a one of a kind and I haven't found a factory yarn similar. She thought I was full of crap. You knitters and fiber enthusiasists understand the value.

I'm just playing at a top down short sleeve cardi. I might keep it as is or decide to rip it out and start again. The nice thing is this yarn gets fluffier with abuse. I used a pink/peach version of this for Maude. Which I'm thinking about ripping this out and making something else, as I rarely wear it because I don't care for the neckline. It's too low in the back. I have rounded shoulders so it keeps falling off my shoulders.
I want to thank Crafty Cripple for mentioning the book The Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Join the Millions Who Have Become Non-smokers Using Allen Carr's Easy Way Method. I bought this book a few years ago, got half-way through and stopped reading it. I forgot I had it and have been tearing through boxes like a maniac. I found it today in the box D had said was all his books and he was supposed to go look for it. Unless he does it right that second, I can forget it. I waited two days and did it my own self. Patience 0. Agitation eleventy billion.
Tomorrow I'm having the name Three and Four contest. D is supposed to help take their pictures later. I need to find some prizes. They are twins now that all the down feathers are off four, I can't tell them apart. All four birds look to be boys. Which is just fine as boy birds don't lay eggs and create more birds.
Herbie turned one month on Monday. He celebrated on Tuesday with a flight around the living room. I was attaching some seed stick treats to the side of the cage. Because he's not afraid of me, he went up to my arm and out the space in the door as pretty as you please. Luckily, D was home and caught him up while I warded off the cats whom were luckily confused. Lucky he was that Butterscotch sat in the middle of the room with a befuddled look on his face. "Did I just see one of those birds fly by?" The girls were asleep in the bedroom and they wouldn't have sat there befuddled. Bootise and Tennessee would have been on the hunt. Herbie is back in the cage without incident other causing me a coronary.
I'm off to go read a two hundred page book. Thank you for stopping by. If you would like to see what other's are up to click the badge at the bottom.
