Continuing Education Knitting

I had an all day continuing education class today. Don't you hate it when you have to get up earlier on Saturday than you do the rest of the week?!

My class was an hour away. It was a good opportunity to catch up on a few podcasts. Sound Opinions and This American Life. Someday, I'll be all caught up on my podcasts. But for now, I catch 'em whenever I can. My commute to work takes less than 10 minutes, so there's no podcast listening during the drive.

It was an all day class. I managed to get lots of knitting done on the Alpaca Sox. The first one is almost complete. (those veg are getting a workout holding up socks, aren't they? Really, we've been eating them, too!)

Look what met me on the sidewalk when I came home on Friday.

Two pounds of CVM (California Variegated Mutant), already made into batts, ready for spinning.

I love the sound of that - Mutant Sheep - welcome to the future!

This is my consolation for not getting into SOAR this year.

I, and several of my friends, were waitlisted. Not a one made it off the list.

This may not be a terrible thing. It appears that they don't have enough hotel rooms available for all the participants. Nice - book a large gathering at a place without enough lodging for everyone.

Bitter? Who, me?!

Hah! I bet no-one at SOAR has two whole pounds of CVM! Take that, Interweave and SOAR!! Hah!

Jealous! All I ever have on my doorstep are toys my son left in the neighbor's backyard. To dream...
