I did have a great surprise last night. I checked out some blogs after I got home before bed. Kristin listed me as one of her happy items. Hot damn. Seriously the high point of my week. Before I actually started my own blog, I was amazed at how interconnected all you knit bloggers were and how everyone seemed like they knew each other. I feel like I'm (hopefully) becoming a part of this community. Thank you to all who have visited and made comments.
Tonight is wool washing night. The fiber arts guild I joined is putting on a demonstration this weekend at our local mall. I have Friday afternoon off, so I'm going to venture out into the world of public spinning. But that means I need some clean fleece to spin. The guild was my meeting last night. I felt pretty inadequate there. Not because of spinning, though. I did fairly well at that. We all went around the circle and introduced ourselves. The woman right before me was there for the first time. She had brought a serious show and tell collection. Shawls where she had spun the yarn before knitting it into gorgeous finished products. Lace. Lace that was apparently featured in some national newsletter. I don't even know what else. When it came to my turn, all I could say was "Hi. I'm Jocele. Compared to that I've got nothing. Next person please." With time, I'll get there right?
In other news, Catie now has 2 teeth. Really she did pretty good through the whole teething thing. One bad night was all we had to deal with. Granted, she has only 2 teeth in her head at this point. We still have a ways to go. But it's a start. And here she is. I wish we could get her to smile more at the camera. Even without a smile, she's adorable. Not that I'm prejudiced, though.
