Oh my, it's hello yarn roving - delicious - and I can't really even spin - doh!
And because I don't spin - some hello yarn fat sock in Marzipan. The colors are so fun - and I think it is gender nuetral enough for a baby surprise jacket for a boy or a girl. That would mean however, that I figured out knitting a BSJ. As luck would have it, I took off of work today to relax post-birthday with my intention being to read and watch Atonement On Demand - no kids, no DH, no interruptions - ah, but the cable went out - doh! Yes, I could have driven to the video store, but momentum was lost. So a day at home without TV or internet - egads. *giggle* I watched a DVD that teaches the BSJ - so I am a little farther on that puzzling project - kind of fun really.
Anyways, in addition to a little knitting, I got a ton of yard work done - I found it strangely fulfilling to dig around in the dirt. However, this is where the story gets weird - stick with me. I was weeding away when I heard a swarm of locusts or something - I looked up - no kidding - 10 squirrels were charging at me. I was imaging a sad end for myself - they were within feet of me, standing around the flowerbed chirping at me - wtf? Thankfully they continued on their way after a brief standoff. I must be a squirrel whisperer - seriously.
*I took this picture from another site - it's the training camp I am imagining my crazy squirrels are working out to fight the power!
