Birthday BBQ and Spinning

Well today is the big BBQ birthday bash - the Saturday between Bryan's and my birthdays. We're expecting a lot of people! 60 ish or so? I'm spinning!!! I'm borrowing my teacher's wheel and am buying a semi-used one from a friend of a sweet KR person! I'm soooo psyched! I'm almost done my sweater but I won't have it done for today- it's supposed to be hunid so I guess it is just as well, but I thought it would be fun to wear it. Oh well... The farm is awesome- I have veggies out the wazzoo! YUM! Until next time..........eat more greens!!!

Cable scarf I forgot to post...



Here is the very first "cable" I did. I gave it to my nephew as a gift. I actually made it quite a while ago, but am finally getting around to posting the pic. Now I just need to take pictures of the other things I've made! Well, too tired out from the farm today so, the pics will have to wait while I go take a nap...

Weeding the farm & spinning

Well, not at the same time! All this rain has made the weeds grow like crazy! I go back tomorrow AM and get my produce - YUM!
I've been spinning on the spindle I borrowed from Judi - mine is so light, I can't control it yet... I can't wait to learn the wheel! I'm so psyched!
Been doing okay with the whole new nutrition thing - although, I gotta tell you - I'm dying for a slice of pizza. Dairy can't be as bad as the sugar can it??? I was sooooo sick from the chocolate cake - I was up all night dry heaving and then slept till 3:00 in the afternoon! Isn't my hubby sweet for letting me sleep in?! I'll tell ya though - I felt like I was back in college and had two too many! It was aweful! But pizza!!! How can I do this??? Moz is the only cheese I eat - can't I be a Mozarella-Vegan??? If people can be ovo-lacto vegetarian, then I think a slice of pizza here and there is fine. Do you like my rationalization??? Well I'm gonna go eat something - I did make a really good barley soup yesterday - not the same as pizza though...

a new post- and it's only been 5 months!

Well, once again I've forgotten that I have a blog... I've got to get the hang of this! The knew news is that I've joined an Organic CSA - yes I'm a temporary farmer - how cool is that?! I also am taking spinning lessons - woooohooooo!!!

I am now officially a knitting teacher for Michael's on Bustleton Ave. I'm very psyched and can't wait to start classes! My school knitting club is up and running and the kids are doing great - I'm so proud of them!

I've been working on quite a few projects and need to get pics up - maybe will try to do that over this holiday weekend...
HAPPY FOURTH!!!!!!!!

I'm a Knitting Organizer for Langhorne!!!

http://knittinfool.blogspot.comhttp://knitting.meetup.com/606/

Welcome to the new Langhorne Meet Up group! Through a series of odd events, I am now the organizer for our group! This should be fun- not so sure what hubby is thinking about it, but I think it'll be fun! I have one new member, hopefully it will grow from there... I've also been talking to Jamie about writing a book- or should I say she's been talking to me?! Anyway, we both think it would be really cool and I think we're going to go for it! Probably will be a summer project... If I can get this spinning thing down I can write about that too!
