Just a quicky blog....

Everyone sing along...

Hippo birdie, dear Karen (as in my sister who is now OVER 40)
Hippo birdie, two ewes!
Karen, check you mail box later this week...you got a cool package coming your way! (I can say that because she NEVER reads my blog...yet she calls at all hours to ask for help with knitting patterns...hmm...)

So, we returned home safely after our road trip to Henderson, KY for the SpinAlong. Much success!! It was loads of fun! Even Randy had a good time sitting in the middle of a yarn shop with a bunch of knitters, spinners and kids. The kids drew some awesome pictures for us that I'll post as soon as I can get to a scanner.

I bought a pound of Cleopatra's roving...yum! She's a black shetland with exotic silver tips....so soft! I also picked up a cool hank of yarn for my sister. I put it in the mail already and I don't remember what it's called, but I stashed it on my Ravelry page. It's drop dead killer cool! I'm still going to consider it my stash even though it will be at my sister's, 900 miles away. Is that wrong?

After I had my fiber fill...(ok that's funny)...we hit the casino. Much to our amazement we actually took their money. That doesn't happen very often, and it pretty much paid for the trip. I should have bought more yarn/fiber! Dang those missed opportunities!

We got home, we made our famous shrimp scampi, ate like pigs and chalked it all up to a really good weekend!

p.s. I am lame and forgot my camera, so no photos. The camera is AWOL once again. I'm hoping it's in Randy's trunk.
