Places to Go and Things to See

Just a quick update because there are so many places to go these days…and I think there are things to see?

I spun on this the night before I spent my son’s graduation ceremony looking mostly at this…

LOL! How’s that for another year’s tuition? πŸ™‚ Nevertheless, it was a lovely ceremony.

And earlier this week, the Girl Child and I spent a few hours at a friend’s cookout.

Here she is sucking up the sun and some Hi-C.Β  Just fueling up before finding something else completely off-limits to get into, lol.

Meh. It gave me an opportunity to spin some on this guy…

Hey, I will take every chance I can get! πŸ™‚


  1. This fiber is so beautiful … It looks like the one you made the fish-hat from, is that right?
    Have a great day! πŸ˜€

    • I think it’s that I’m attracted to similar color schemes. But I spun up all of that previous fiber. Not one hair of it left, lol!

      You have a great day too. πŸ™‚

  2. Beautiful colors on both. I love the long color repeats in the first one and how they just pop. Wonderful job on the spinning. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you! I think she mentioned somewhere maybe making more of that colorway. Looks like I’m not the only one that likes these colors together. They’re just really nice warms and cools.

  3. Spin, spin everywhere I spin!

    • That’s right!! When we went to the cookout, I asked my husband who was going to be there because I wanted to be able to take out my spindle at some point. Do you know what he said? “Don’t worry. I already told them you’re a weirdo.” LOL!

      As long as we’re clear!

  4. You select the most beautiful fibers. You have the gift. Congrats to the boy child. Now what does he plan to do?

    • Really? I think I just go for bright colors. I am going to have to get some cooler, darker symphonies at some point. I doubt the hubby will let me make him socks with pink, lol.

      He just graduated from the eighth grade, actually. When I was in eighth grade, there wasn’t such a big deal made about it? But these days, it’s huge. He got accepted to all of the high schools he applied to though. So we just have to see which one he likes best. I think he’ll do well, whichever place he chooses though. He’s pretty well-rounded. I like that guy. πŸ™‚

      • Applying for high school is a new concept. Where I live we only have a few options: Go to our one public high school, go to the one church school, or be homeschooled. Oh yeah, or go to the private school in the next county. It’s nice to have options though. I’m sure he’ll make a good decision.

    Ohhhh I like the blues to yellow to blues fiber you are spinning! And your spinning is so well done…I wish I were as gifted. I am glad you had a happy graduation celebration for your son and that you and your daughter were able to soak up some sunshine. The sun has been hiding a lot out in the Portland, OR area this week. I also like the brown [alpaca?] fiber you spun on your spindle so beautifully! My husband would not have tolerated pink socks either [ but I bought him a rasberry colored shirt that he looked great in and agreed to wear fairly frequently(:] So you are going to knit socks for your hubby out of the brown fiber? He will feel blessed if you do, I’m certain!

    • Thanks for the compliments on the spindling and spinning. Those colors are pretty, aren’t they? That fiber is from one of our favorite artists. πŸ™‚

      It was a happy day. Family came from NC and from around Delaware to help celebrate his accomplishments. My dad came from New York. It was just really nice and he enjoyed himself.

      I do intend to knit him more socks out of this gray stuff I’m going to be spinning up soon….I’m thinking he will probably want more when fall gets here and I’d better get cracking. Maybe I can fit in some for me too though. Of course, I will want wayyyy more color than gray! You know what they say about opposites…

  6. I am pleased to tell you that I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I have really enjoyed β€œmeeting” you on the blogosphere and reading your posts. See my post on this award for next steps. Enjoy!

  7. Beautiful fiber!

  8. That is one (of the many) reasons I love spinning, it is so easy to do anywhere. I take my knitting with me too, but I have to pay attention when I knit. With spinning I can chat with people or just relax and let my mind wander. Of course when I spin in public I get a lot of stares, made worse by white hair with blue streaks!

    Hope you have a nice weekend!

    • And I feel the same way. I usually take along knitting projects that I can “read” from the knitting because if you ask me to remember any kind of complicated stitch pattern, it’s just not going to happen! I can only do something more involved when I have HUGE stretches of time to devote to just that…which I almost never get. Summer’s coming though, so we will see. Now, spinning? The only thing I have resolved to at home is the plying….My first 3-ply on a spindle has scarred me for life. Or for at least another few months until I get some more singles spun. πŸ˜‰

      ROFL!! I hope I’m cool enough to have hair like that when I get older….I do think I’ll want my streaks orange though. πŸ™‚
