So, I told myself after spinning that I needed another hobby like I needed a hole in the head. Then I took up sewing, and now to add to the many holes in my head, I present to you...
After a little jaunt to the Whistlestop with Wendy -
We wandered over to The Grove - the site of regular frivolous spending, I once again ignore the more practical - yet not nearly as fun voice in my head - and came home with a wire jewelry book, a supply kit, and several neat little pre-packaged projects direclty from the book. Two sets of earrings, and a ring project. It took me a little bit to get used to using a pair of round nose pilers, and my first set of earrings you can see that the curves are not completely perfect. I think that it adds to the charm of them though. I don't have a ring mandrel so the knot ring project will have to wait.
Lots of fun, almost instant gratification,... winner!
Last night I went to the Padres game with Wendy and Mr Spazz and her parents. We didn't end up sitting with the rest of the knitters but the game still was lots of fun just the same. We saw Tanya from afar. The Padres kicked some Reds ass, and I got quite a bit of the back of Sizzle completed.
The view from nosebleed (not bad at all - but going up and down those stairs freaks me out)
Sizzle at the game - knitting with SWTC Phoenix (soy silk) on Knitpicks Options needles. The perfect KIP project with lots of stockinette. I'm finished decreasing for the arm holes and about to knit up to the increases for it.
Wendy was working on Rogue with her lovely hand spun (so frickin' perfect this yarn)
