Creating Me

Friday, December 31


More homespun for your viewing pleasure. I call this sunshine. I think I will make a neck tube from it. Even though it's not cold here, yet. It has been in the mid-60's this week. Weird.

Spin, Spin, Spin

My homespun is coming along nicely. I am getting much more consistent. Now it's time to work on plying, I want to be able to make something as beautiful as Hello Yarn. I also have to figure out the secrets of dyeing.

In other news, I found this great yoga studio, Yoga Central. The teachers are amazing. And they have a yoga wall, which I had never experienced before. I forgot how much I enjoy working with a teacher and others, for the past few months I have been on my own. But this is definitely the place for me.

The best gift I received for Christmas 2004: Dream Cream from Lush. My best friend Carrie got it on a trip to California. I have always wanted to try Lush but never took the plunge, now I'm hooked. Thanks Carrie, you are the best.

Napoleon Dynamite

Dennis' favorite movie of all time came out yesterday. If you haven't seen it, rent it, today- right now. Leave your computer and go to Blockbuster and get it. You will laugh your pants off.

Check it out. I recieved my first Sampler yesterday. It is so exciting. I got a ton of cool stuff but some of my favorites were: pomegranate candle from, a little pouch made from felt that my driver's license and other cards fit in perfectly, a Mexican Love Charm from starbright designs. Honestly I loved everything and I can't wait till Feburary.

I'm working on the MaryElla from knitty. This is my first time working with beads. It's much easier than I thought it would be. The 0000 needles take some getting use to and putting 1400 beads on was very time consuming. Overall it's a great quick project. I ordered the beads and DMC cotton from I also got the purple and white. Maybe these will become Christmas gifts.
