Spinning in the Dark, or: I Need New Glasses

Last night I Tweeted this:
"velmalikevelvet needs new glasses so badly she's wearing her headlamp to spin. The old is everywhere."
For some perverse reason they both share*, VTKnitboy and Hellchick both requested photo-documentation, & I'm nothing if not accomodating. It's darker than it looks, & I'm in desperate need of a new prescription (can you say "bifocals", class?). Chris, aka vtknitboy, pointed out that my shoulder pain might be related to how high I hold my hands/forearms (the better to SEE you with, my dear!) I think he might be onto something!

And what am I spinning? Why, the merino for my Harf mentioned yesterday, of course! I got through the first half of the fiber, about 2oz., last night (the singles, not the plying). Will try to do the rest tonight so I can cast on tomorrow; I'd like to work on the Harf while I'm gone next week (more on that later!).

What's this? THIS is a screenshot of my blog stats this morning, showing the absolute SKYROCKET in readers on VWorld yesterday, that's what! Turns out, if @knittydotcom re-Tweets, say, your blog post re: Imaginary Rhinebeck: it appears on the Knitty Blog and... To the moon, Alice! Haven't had a day that big since Deb Robson linked to my Sock Summit recap post on her blog.

Today? Well, today is getting ready for that trip next week. Check back for details!

*Must've been something in the air about headlamps yesterday on Twitter, 'cuz earlier in the evening Knitch was asking me for this photo of me knitting with mine on at Purl 'n Hurl recently. Weird.


  1. Yes your pain is probably related to how you hold your fiber. But at least you can spin in the dark!

  2. I want to see your cute Halloweeny hair unbraided. I bet it's pretty!


Tell me what you're thinking, I dare you!
