Fiber Emergency!

Somewhere around Albany I went a kittle crazy and decided that there
was nothing in the world I needed to do more than spin Right Now.

Fortunately there was fiver nearby and David is nice/used to me being weird ;)

May I present my new drop spindle and four ounces of the loveliest BFL
I've seen in a long time:

the wedding went off without a hitch!  (well, one hitch...we got hitched...sorry, couldn't help myself)  the weather cooperated better than we could have hoped for, there was an excellent turn out, and everyone enjoyed themselves greatly :)  my shawl got a lot of comments, and my mom crocheted on my veil.  we are hanging out here for one more day, then hitting the road for parts north...first niagara, then maine to visit the family that couldn't come down.  there has been no knitting, but that's not unexpected.

for those of you looking for the song that's been stuck in my head all day, try here.

a list

because that's how my mind has been working with the wedding right around the corner...sorry for the lack of pictures

1)  finished the hidden lace socks...not a great fit, but the heel is a cool idea...i'll mess with it later
2)  won a prize from sockamania!  waiting for it to get here
3)  cast on more breast cancer socks...have been making sickeningly slow progress
4)  cut out an entire dress, mastered fusible interfacing, broke the sewing machine :(  don't have the patience to deal with it as
5)  getting married on saturday!
6)  had bachelorette party last saturday...went to shadowbox...wore a crown...had fun
7)  translated a sock pattern from german to here if you're interested (no pictures there either...get the original download from rav to see what they should look like)
8)  family getting in from out of town tomorrow...i may lose my mind
