Wacky Wednesday

First, a confession. Yes, I did eat half a container of low sugar ice cream yesterday. As a throwback to my younger computer days:

If weather = HOT
icecream = GONE
icecream = NOTGONE

I'm sorry, but if SOME people want the thermostat set at 80F, they're going to have to live with a chubby wife and empty cartons of the good stuff. While our electric bill this month is a nice $115, the ice cream bill is more like $500.

Hee hee! Just kidding about the $500. I'd sit in a cool tub of water before letting anything take away from the fiber budget.

Mom has 'the' word for our lacy socks, girls: Tedious. Not difficult, ugly, or even boring really, just tedious. Here we see the lace sock, the entrelac, and the beginnings of a baby hat on some homespun yarn.

Yes, the boy is fat, but he IS also fluffy. To the left are the baby booties I made yesterday. What can I say, I was bored.

Claudie is clearly loving them. They're made from some lovely pink roving I bought at my last trip to Cottage Fibers. Because the lacy sock was so slow going, I wanted to make something quick and fun. I know of no baby girls at the moment, so I'll probably sell, give, gift, or award these, plus a little hat to go with them.

The socks are looking very nice. You are doing a great job. Slow and steady wins the race.

I think Claude wants to WEAR the booties, AND have his photo taken! I noticed that I am not the only crazy nut who wants to spin cat hair (ie. commenter on duplicate post of this one)!!

Sigh. Yes, yesterday, Blogger wouldn't let me delete the duplicate.

Poor Claude! I've been 'roughing' him up so much (ie, excessive hugs and squeezes) that he's avoiding me. I'd like to put him in booties, but I think he'd hurt me.

As for spinning his hair... He's soft and cuddly, but I'm not convinced on spinning it. Probably when he gets to the great canned cat food storage house in the sky, I'll regret not making at least a kitty hat out of his fur.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race
