Whew!

It has been a busy, busy week ... my boss was in and out of the office and then a coworker was out, so things have been hectic. Not only is Mr. Fury home now, he also dug up a Wii for us; I can't tell you what a time-suck that thing is. Apparently I am a good pretend bowler, and pretend fisher.

After reading through no less than four different tutorials, I have finally managed to produce a short length of lumpy, twisty, unbalanced, overspun, underspun, substance-that-can-loosely-be-defined-as-yarn-if-you-squint. :-) I was having a problem with the entire fiber length completely untwirling when I removed it from the spindle, so this time I just left it on there for 24 hours before taking it off. I was feeling sort of discouraged until I looked at Crafster and saw many other "first yarn" posts that sort of resembled mine. The next attempt will be better, I'm sure. I am going to save this length as a single for posterity.

I go in for my final chest tattoo session on Wednesday ... I know that I vowed not to buy any yarn until it's done, but hey, what difference would a few days make? I have Fitted Knits on the brain -- many things, but particularly that turtleneck vest. Hmm ...

You just reminded me that my hubby picked up a Wii this weekend. It doesn't really take up any of my time, but it sure is a pain when I need my courtTV fix. lol

My husband refuses to buy a Wii right now. We've already got an XBox 360, and with Xbox live, we're always playing something...
