On Saturday the Oceanside library is doing a free Learn how to Knit program at 10am. Wendy, Heidi and I (and maybe Mary-Kay) will be there to demo hand spinning as well. If anyone feels like stopping by to get your knit on - (or spin on) we will be meeting at the Longboarder Cafe at 9am which is right across the street from the Library. Wendy's bringing her Louet wheel for anyone who might want to be learning how to spin (cough HILARI cough).
Heather the owner of Noble Knits is doing the Knitting Lesson.

I'll be bringing my balls of BFL that I got on the trip up to the last fiber fest we went to - which I cant remember the name of. Yummy thick thin stuff. And I also have a surprise for Wendy and Heidi that I have to get done before Saturday. *rubbing hands together*
I spent the weekend up in Oakland - San Ramon to be specific - with my brother in law and his family. His daughter Ashlinn just celebrated her 5th birthday so we flew up and got our party hats on. The house was filled with little kids and it was a little overwhelming for someone who's not spawned yet. But I did meet a little girl that made my ovaries TWITCH I tell you. Her name is Juliette, and she's about the cutest doll-baby I've ever seen.
I did my first training run last night - and I didn't die! Going from devout couch potato to runner is going to be tough though. I did my little intervals of jogging and walking - and on the 7th and 8th repeat - I was dragging for sure. I like running at night though - there are fewer people around to see my ass jiggle and running with my dog is always motivating cause she doesnt get tired. Its also nice and cold out so I don't feel like I'm getting over heated and sucking wind at 50 degrees is much nicer than sucking it at 85. I'm not nearly as sore today as I thought I would be though which is nice - I might even go running tonight again since I have dinner plans tomorrow.
There also has even been some knitting going on. I've been diligently working on my Picovili for the Sexy Knitters KAL and I'm just starting on the waist decreases. I slipped all of the stitches to some waste yarn last night and tried it on - I'm knitting the 40" version for my 43" bustline and it seems to be fitting quite well so far. The Knitpicks Shine is working up to a very nice soft and dense fabric which I like a lot. The 5.25" of stockinette from the armholes was pretty boring though. Good thing my boobs aren't any bigger since I have the attention span of a 3 legged dung beetle. It was the only thing that I worked on over the weekend during the waits for the plane, the flight, and during the party to keep myself from going insane.
And because I've already shown this photo to one person that I'd have been worried about what they might think of me looking like an idiot - here it is for ya'll in blogland.
Viva la NERF Tiara!
