Okay, just a quick note; back in halifax and so excited about know what I mean....

I'm having mine and my Mum's special delivered here to MY HOUSE! Harry on my doorstep. yum, yes please. nb: it is not dirty when the underager is fictional.
Do you know who the half-blood prince is? I have so many theories about what the book will be and where the story's going. I will not bore you with these as some of you in the UK may already have the book, nor will I disturb you with my Dan Radcliffe tending a flock of alpaca fantasies. 'fice to say I will be reading, not knitting for a few days, which is really too bad cause.....

BIG NEWS: My mum is awesome (not the news): she has rescued about 10 bags of sheep fleece from a farm near Napanee; a colleague of hers had to sell his farm and at 30 cents a pound, decided not to bother selling-or cleaning-the sheepy wool they had just shorn. Now it is all mine ::bwa ha ha ha:: and with my NSCAD access through the weaving class I should be able to spin it. Yee haw!

Now, what do these two topics have in common? Maybe my aunt's cat Fraser and his best friend Lambchop can explain. Here they are posing for a portrait.

...and Here they are displaying the common thread...WARNING: May be unsuitable for some knitters Back to MY issues; Harry Potter and free fleece. Excitement and Passion. It is a thing to behold. Follow your bliss whether it be hairy or Harry.

ps In support of Melissa after the CRAZY post war over at Knitty, this has been 'The Fleece Issue' and she can hate it if she so chooses. *wink*

(click to blow up)

You are looking at the making of one **crazy** video...too crazy to get into any details, besides these: 12hours, barn, smoke machine, blackflies, and 50 takes of doing 'the robot'. Matt Mays, you owe me. I will take my payment in Noro. lol.

In other news, I went a-weaving the next morning (photo below), flew to Toronto, flew to Kingston, next morning drove to Ottawa and back and now I'm packing to drive back to Nova Scotia with Mum and the Cat. My project for the 3 day drive (we take our time) is IK's Flower Basket Shawl in Silk Garden. Has anybody else noticed lately that I'm out my tree? I will photograph my progress. I will also tell y'all when to watch for my video debut (but only if I look good in it)

The 'Sampler' part of my weaving project...the begining and end have wacky fibers running through it...mohair, eyelash, ribbon, alpaca, embroidery floss...purples,reds and greys. Should have taken a photo before it all got covered up, but will take many photos when it's off the loom.

Soundtrack: "On The Hood", Matt Mays & El Torpedo, "She's so Cold", Stones Posted by Picasa

Hope everyone had a great Canada Day (me, I stayed in bed) and that american knitters are having a good 4th.

news news news. I am done the main part of my possible submission top (which I know means nothing b/c I havn't been blogging about it, but please be happy for me anyway). It is stinking hot here in Halifax and it's about to get worse; I'm flying back to ontario on thursday. I HATE all this heat! I went out to pick up magazines yesterday. I was out 15min. max, and now I have heat stroke. I'm worried 'cause I'm supossed to go to the beach tomorrow to be an extra in a Matt Mays video. (too funny on it's own-I'm not even sure how I got on the list) I think I will die in the sun. Would it be too pretentious to take a 'brolly? I left my parasol in Kingston. I will be the extra in a burqa.

Which takes me not so smoothly back to the magazines....have you guys discovered 'Selvedge' yet????

I mean have you got over the whopping $25 price tag and looked inside???? OMG! Seriously, it's worth it. Let me put it this way; the first ad was from Liberty's and the 2nd Rowan. Even the ads are beautiful and inspirational!!! We seem to be an issue behind here, so do try and find the spring issue if you can.

Soundtrack: "Stephanie", Buckingham Nicks

"What I got", Sublime

ps. did everyone think the Barrie Live8 was as weird as I did?
