The Blog Builder was Sick

Not me - the computer.  The fan on the power supply died, so after 2 days of an external fan and frantically backing up, my computer went to the Computer Hospital.  All is well now, but it's absence did free up some time (ya think!?)

So what did the Artsy Fish do with this time? Spin? Nope - I went after the house projects I have been putting oiff.  I painted the excercise room and hung new curtains

(No room is free from fiber and fiber tools!)

and made new curtains for the fiber den

I did do some knitting - made a cowl from my handspun

finished up the Trevi Shawl I started at the Knitter's Review Retreat in November- again from my handspun

and started my Northern Lights Shawl from this Handmaiden Mini Maiden

As soon as this is done, and dinner is started in the crock-pot, I will be off to spin - finally!

Knitting Weather!!!!!

The weathermen (and women) were right this time! We had a lovely storm on Saturday.

After watching this as I knit away Saturday...

I went out to enjoy the sunshine on Sunday!

Unfortunately the roads are still the pits on Monday - I wish VDOT understood that plowing the roads before the snow stops actually does some good!
