Nepalese yarn

How do I love thee?  Parting is such sweet sorrow. [insert incorrectly quoted phrase from English Lit class] Why didn't I paint more of you, dear skein? Why am I under deadline and not painting you right now? Why am I talking to yarn?
Not good. Noooooooot good at all.

Lyta, and... Squirrelly

Whilst the weekend was spent at market --- and many a person milling around Port Adelaide during the holiday, I managed to sneak in a spinning moment here and there -- as I played with my Chuppah Whorl Spindles to demonstrate. Such a teaser, though, as the needles demanded immediate attention.

*schniffle* not enough time to play. This could turn me into a walking, talking (babbling?) Stephen King character. All knit and no play makes Mel a dull girl. WAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Pictured above is my babygirlLyta. She is caressing her beloved Squirrelly, who, as you can see, is laid out in the disemboweling position. And yes, Lyta likes to completely mess up the hall runner. It's stuffed now. But do I care? Mais non, as who can resist that face? Those cute little eyebrows? Cheeky monkey. Squirrelly is now a lot skinnier than in the photo, but no less loved. And both squeekers are missing, much to my husband's delight. Notice the holding position? This is how she holds her Dentastix snacks too.

general feralness

Feeling extremely feral under deadline -- no time for spinning sucks. And I'm still having trouble dealing with my colour analysis from the surve (see right). I mean, saddlebag brown? I love browns, but I think of myself as a PURPLE kinda woman. *sigh*

Sneaking in some spinning time this am at the guild... m
