Spinning Bug & Writing Update

I have been, once again, bitten by the spinning bug. It has been gone for a few years,
allowing me to learn to bead and improve my knitting, but I fear it is here again.
This is the result of a few hours of courtship between my wheel
and some lovely Moreno.

Novel word count 43,787. I may make it.

Have a great day.

Christmas Gift 1

Pattern: "Chunky Cable Handbag" Free Pattern from Knit Picks
Yarn: (Double Stranded) Cascade 128 in color 7633 (LYS - Knitique) 2 skeins
Needles: US11 Addi Circs
Lining: Canvas tote bag from craft store

Start to finish including sewing the lining in takes about 5 hours. Another blog said it took them 2 hours, but I am a slow seamstress. (translated, it takes me 20 minutes to thread the needle and another 20 minutes to apply the band-aid to all my "pokes")

Have a great day!

I absolutely adore this picture. If only I looked so elegant knitting. In 20 years of knitting, I've never seen myself knit, but most assuredly I do not look this elegant!
I am officially behind in my writing and will try to catch up this week.

Have a great day.

God Save the Queen

I am moving back to England!!

Nancy Pelosi as Speaker? WTF?
Well, if nothing else this ought to be entertaining to watch.

Luckily some of the stupid decisions Bush made were nulified by our Constitution, lets hope the same will happen with the "Nut Case" from SF as Speaker. Even Hilary is better than this. At least she is an intellegent woman who learns from her mistakes (and knows how to deal with and make the best of an idiot of a husband. Right there she knows how to govern with the best of them)

Well, head down, knit and write. The lord said, "this to shall pass", not "this to will come and stay". She will go away eventually, then we can fix what was broken and move forward.

Jane asked "How do you Blog" in a physical sense. Well, this is where I blog/work/sometimes knit from. As with everything I do, it is controlled chaos. Most things have a purpose and a place and still, yanking every word of this novel is herculian. Organization should count for something!! But alas, unless you sit your butt in the chair and crank out some decent S%*t, I mean work, then who the heck cares how organized it was?
