Two down...

Two finished projects shipped to the publisher they are intended for. I swear that all those bright colors are not going into the same garment - not even the same publication! But they are finished and they are gone and I am happy.
Two to go - there are 10 more skeins of the cream silk, and 18 more skeins of the maroon shiny stuff - it is going to be a loooooong week of crocheting. The shiny stuff is for a book, the creamy stuff for a yarn company - both are due "as soon as humanly possible", but no later than next Monday. I have decided to lay off the design submissions for a while - I love doing this stuff, but if I don't get the knitting book written by deadline there is going to be hell to pay. And if I don't keep up with the magazine writing work (which pays better and more quickly) I will starve. I have four patterns sitting in review at various places right now, so if they get sold I will have those samples to make, and everything else is just going to have to wait until I am a little more organized about...well...everything.

I had a little unpremeditated S.E.X. on Thursday - I was waiting in the rain for an appointment that never showed up (long tedious story - I will spare you) and when I was finally convinced this was a no-go, it seemed only right and fair to stop into the nearby yarn shop. Not to buy anything of course, just to say hello, since I was so close and all. And THIS was on the clearance table.

Five glorious skeins of Dover Idena, a bulky wool/acrylic blend. Can you say
Red Scarf Project? Sure you can! Check out that link for a cool blog started by the fabulous Norma in support of the second year of this worthwhile charitable endeavor.

There's been an awful lot of s.e.x. in the blogosphere lately....

Planning to go to Rhinebeck!

Norman, OK was pretty good for s. e. x. I must say. Unpacking (once the !#@*% bag arrived from Boston) resulted in a considerable and seasonable pile of sock yarns. Which , as we know, do not count. Hmmm. Maybe it was the sock yarn that took the luggage on walk about. Maybe that's why the luggage got the extra frequent flyer miles while I sulked around baggage claim on a Saturday night in NYC.
