Knitting and such

    I've been thinking, I need to get me an ounce or so of camel hair soon. Hmm, I wonder if the Llama Store is open today. Well anyways, I have this cross stitch I want to do, see? And it has 3 camels on it. So, of course I have decided to do them with camel. And I have learned how to spin, so now I can get camel hair, and then spin it to the right size, and dye it the right colors and then I can do my cross-stitch. Hmm. I wonder if camel comes in different colors? And should I dye it before spinning, or after? These are all things that will have to be decided.

    I'm almost done with the second sleeve on my sweater, then just to finish the body and I'll be done. It's really looking great and I'm really really happy with the feel of the wool yarn. I'm just so use to wool sweaters feeling horrible that I was a bit worried.

    Once I finish the sweater I can start on my other knitting projects. I want to knit a pair of socks. I also want to knit a vest. And I want to figure out a pattern for a 1" wide lace ribbon, I'll use it for a book mark. :D

    I also am working on writing a book. I've been working on this for 2 years now. It's taking me longer than I thought it would to learn how to write. Hmm. I need to figure out a name for this book sometime, maybe soon, hmm.

Well enough for now.
