Hey Dustina, nice to see ya back hun!!!
Julie, ya'll wrote a couple pages back bout how ya hate gussets? Girl, we should start the anti-gusset societe, you could be prezzie n I'll be sarge at arms!!
Knitterb, welcome to the club, this is a great little family we got here, so jump on in. The only stupid question is the one that never gets asked. As for the "how to get started thing" Just grab some yarn n some needles cast on n away we go!!
QOTD: hmmm, here in our house, we love, love, love, Jambalaya, (yummmmmmm)
then it's good ol' steaks on the grill!! (even in January) LOL
Well, I bought a drop spindle n have been making attempts at spinning some wool into some semblence of yarn (mostly now it looks like snakes that have eaten a golfball). I'm getting a bit better with my consistency n I'm getting a good worsted/bulky weight single. Gonna have my preggers dd over to help me dye it with koolaid one of these days. I'm still working on getting a nice skinny single so I can make me own sock yarn but ya know more practice is definitely needed for that. Yep, yep, yep!!
Well, last week we had a really really really weird storm blow (yeah like knock trees over blow) throught town n most of downtown was flooded for a few hours. They still can't decide if it was a tornado or a micro-burst. Either way, it still blew a lot of stuff around. Lot's of the farmers lost their corn n wheat because of the beating it took. (Look for grocery prices to spike sometime later this year because of all the rain n flood damage to the crops).
It was raining so hard ya'll couldn't see the end of your fender (about 3 feet). The trees were all bending sideways n we had one fall on the power lines n snap em during the storm. So didn't have any power til bout 6 the next morning (Thursday). But all's well that end's well. Luckily, no one in town got hurt. They did have to evacuate the hospital though because water was coming into the facility.
( I know, I know, tryin to catch up on all the stuff cause I haven't posted in a while, sheesh)
Well, we did have a wonderful fourth. Went down to watch the parade on the bikes n bout halfway through other local bikers had entered into the parade n they all called us in n we got to ride the rest of the parade with our bikes, revving the engines n making those pipes dang loud. THAT, was a blast!!!
Then we went to a fourth of July party n they had loads of games for bikes like the "slow race" n riding a rail, n the hot dog eating contest (I didn't have a passenger for that one but watching the others was fun!!) Watched the fireworks from work (had to make those darn donuts again, sheesh). If yer askin, Nope, I didn't sleep all day. Hubby was off so we went n rode together all day. We had a blast!!!
It was great to see other bikes that the guy whose house we went to had built. The man is an artist.
His wife said call her so we could go riding. Said that would be a good idea, that we could go to Sterling n go to the coffee house n to the LYS across the street. She thought that was a wonderful idea, hmmmm does this mean I ain't the only knitten biker in town?
