The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

Snow, Snow Queen, and Sheer Dumb Luck

Friday I sat all day in the dealership in Dayton, while my car got its 170,000 mile service and a bunch of minor annoyances fixed.  I had come armed with Jim Butcher's Captain's Fury on the Ipod and 2 shawls and a pair of socks to work on.  First I finished Chart D, of the Snow Queen Shawl and once I finished that, I got out the Sheer Dumb Luck, and worked on that until they finished the car.  And then I got to try out the new tires, and the amazing handling of the Saab all over again as I drove home for 4 hours, past a bunch of accidents and uncounted cars parked in unusual ways in unusual places.  Stopped twice, once to get milk and stuff I knew we needed, and once to fill the tank on the car.  Other than that I drove, slowly. Totally wiped when I got home and yesterday, except for taking Sierra around the corner (3 miles) to her dance lesson, I sat here and knitted on Sheer Dumb Luck, and finished clue 3, printed and set up clue 4 before bed last night, and the next chart for Snow Queen is supposed to come out today.  Driving Sierra into town to hang with her boyfriend for a while.  Then back to pick her up later.  So less time today but should get some knitting done.
