Blog, day 2...are we fascinated yet?

Well, I'm starting to get the hang of this...I hope. I'm hanging out at home today, getting ready to go back to school after the Thanksgiving break. Not really looking forward to this as I'm having staff problems and need to fix some issues between now and the next holiday break. This is one of those jobs that I took on because I was at loose ends and Visa was strongly suggesting that I obtain gainful employment before it became necessary to send thugs to my home and break my legs in lieu of monetary contributions. Oh well, whaddaya gonna do? I don't know what you're thinking, but I'm putting together a killer resume!

On to happier things...fiber, fiber, fiber and all things crafty!!! I'm currently spinning up some Lincoln that I washed, carded and dyed over the summer. I've blended it with some metallic for a different look. I kinda like it. Pix included, but we're all going to have to forgive the quality. when you're working with the world's crappiest camera you have to live with what you get. I managed to leave the good one in the backseat of my brother's car following the family Thanksgiving.

Would love to show some of my holiday knitting, but you have to realize, I'm a simple girl with a penchant for simple projects. I'm doing scarves...just scarves. Not all that exciting when you compare them to the amazing projects others are putting out there! Maybe when my confidence level rises a bit...

My early rug-hooking attempts are going well, though! My Menos Trigger hook arrived this past week and I think I can continue this hobby without the looming specter of carpal tunnel peering over my shoulder! I mean "traditional" and "primitive" sound nice, but yeesh! A hobby shouldn't cripple ya!

OK, have you notice yet that there are no pictures? Did you think you had developed some selective sort of blindness? Were you concerned, perhaps calling in loved ones or your family physician? No fear, the problem is mine not yours. The photos just won't upload. So much for the "simple" directions...everyone lies to me! We'll keep working on this. I'm sure that it's all my fault; it usually is these days!

Think I'll take a break from this frustrating process and grab some lunch. Since my recent root canal gone horribly wrong this may also be a bit frustrating (not to mention painful) but I'm kind of hungry. I think I may be the only person in the continental U.S. to actually lose weight over the Thanksgiving holidays...turkey and the trimmings must be chewed and that's something I'm not doing too well right now!
