Ten on Tuesday: Special Blogslacker Edition

Hello again, everyone! No, I did not leave the planet, but that sure went fast: I thought I'd blog again in a day or two, and next thing I know almost two weeks have flowed by. About 20 minutes ago I looked up, noted the time, and said to Grant, "Crud, I missed spinning." Sorry about that, ladies: maybe in another two weeks I'll have my head on straight. Herewith, therefore, my own spin, as it were, on Ten on Tuesday.

Ten Things I Didn't Blog About Since I Last Blogged
  1. We said goodbye to the Ohio crew. We had a great time, and we were sorry to leave, but we did discover that flying with Taz is a lot easier than we'd feared — so we're already thinking about going back next year.


  2. We flew home.

    just a plane knitter


    welcome home

  3. I spun at St. Distaff's Day.

    my other friend Debbi and her sherpa

    Crystal, newly aspinnilated


    Penny and friend

  4. We shoveled snow.
  5. I finished Miss B's scarf. One of these days I will get her to model it.
  6. We shoveled more snow.
  7. We celebrated Grant's birthday. Happy birthday, honey!
  8. I discovered that my fatter jeans (my fat jeans having been retired long ago) don't fit.
  9. I went on a diet. Sort of. I am being aware of what I eat, and I have desisted from snarfing up all the available pie, cake, cookies, candy, and other assorted carbolicious treats. For the last six months I don't know what was with me, but, not to mince words, I ate like a pig. I am setting a modest goal: get back into my fatter jeans. Then we'll see.
  10. I am still working on the top-down hat that I started, yikes, before Christmas.


    I'm afraid it might be still a bit too big, but it's now within the realm of fitting a human head. I may decrease a bit before starting the ribbing, which could give it a slightly fungoid appearance, but this is the joy of making things up as you go.
Whew. I think that's everything, more or less.

  • Taz the pack mule makes me smile! So glad it was a good trip.

    As for the hat, think tam and beret - classic styles that suit many faces - and knit on in hope and faith.

  • I have the feeling of coming out of hibernation lately. Odd, since it's still all cold and snowy here!

  • Wondered where you went. Sounds like you had all good excuses though and had lots of fun.

    Blogging ought never stand in the way of fun!

  • WB - sounds like a good time was had by all. Love all the spinning wheel photos!

  • Newly aspinnilated... pangs of jealousy going on... but I know I could too, it's just a matter of finding the time. Not fungoid, call it a design feature... I've seen several hats like that lately, I think they're fashionable (but don't trust me, I'm a fashion criminal).

  • Funny, that. My family always use me as the pack mule, too.

    Maybe Taz and I should lodge a class action thing? ;)

  • The lovely pattern will distract from fungoid appearances, which actually could become a trend.

    I'm with you on the shoveling. But look at it as calories burned!
