I signed up for an inkle weaving class today at our guild meeting. It won't be until the end of February, but I think it's time that I put my inkle loom to a better use than this, a glorified cone holder.
I have too many hobbies already, but our union meets on Monday because our county is broke and is offering early retirement incentives to reduce the outlay in payroll. We'll know on Tuesday what the union has agreed to and must sign an agreement by Friday if we're going to accept early retirement. Tuesdays feels like a month away.
I got this from Mim today - more Blue-faced Leicester. She said when she was dyeing it that she thought it looked like my colors. I traded her soap - love the barter economy. It was her turn to drive to the guild meeting so I got lots of knitting done. I'm using the BFL for hats - the Brewery emailed me that they need more inventory and I'm trying hard to knit "inventory." My little sales here and there go into a special savings account, and while they don't add up to a lot, they did just pay for a new LCD TV that Ian ordered online. It's being delivered on Tuesday.
Late this afternoon, Tom called to say that he had made strawberry margar-
itas. He and Carol had already had two, so if I wanted to walk up to the gate, he'd drive down and bring me one. That's what I call being neighborly.
Small projects, shawl and pumpkiny stuff
