Now that I have successfully acquired sawzall blades AND pie crusts, what should I do tonight when I come home from work? Cut stumps or make blackberry pie? Or both? Put blackberries on the stumps, cut the pie crust with the saw? If I think about it too much, I'll throw up my hands in indecision, do neither and take a nap instead!
Stay Tuned for the outcome in tomorrow's episode.
In other news, my sister knit this vest with my first handspun yarn. I bought the carded silk/romney, (I think) in CT in June, so no, I didn't make the yarn from raw fiber. Sis says the vest is too short (maybe because I'm so new at this that I could only make 306 yards with 8 oz), and that it shrunk when she blocked it (maybe because I didn't wet and whack it after I spun it). Nonetheless, it's a beautiful vest and only a little crooked because the yarn isn't balanced. Thanks to sis for being the first knitter to use my yarn! I promise it will get better!
