This blog has been sorely lacking in knitting/spinning content lately, and there's a good reason for it -- I haven't been doing either of those 2 things at all! We've been so busy traveling around and now getting settled back at work, I haven't had any time to indulge in my favorite hobbies. But that will soon change, I promise -- because I owe the guru some handspun sock yarn as part of her wedding present, and I want to send it to her before she returns from her honeymoon next week. Let's see how far I get with that.
We were in DC this weekend for the aforementioned wedding. It was such a blast. I got to hang out with lots of college friends and lots of the guru's friends I knew from visiting her in various geographical locations (Nepal, DC and Jersey). We had yummy Lebanese food at the wedding, and since the guru is also a veg, the selection was GREAT!
Now we're looking for a house somewhere in the Nutmeg State. I want a big yard so we can have a garden, and Dave wants anything but a raised ranch. I grew up in a raised ranch! Hmmm...
By the way have you read Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle? It was really a delightful book, and I don't use that word lightly (or often...or ever). But that is seriously what it was, all about getting more in touch with where our food comes from and the reality of what we eat. I want this woman to be my friend!
