Knitting, Spinning and family dementia

Just checking in so you don't think I "really" became a vampire.. hee hee (gamer reference).
Jerico came home towards the end of last month. As usual he took over my yarn/sewing room. So, knitting has been kinda slow.
I did finish the smoke ring in the rose brown alpaca. I made it a little to big (who knew I couldn't tell a 6 from an 8 needle) and it had to be "control" felted. Didn't know you could do that? LOL, me either but I figured "nothing ventured nothing gained". Turned out just the right size. Only real problem with it is that its fuzzy and the fuzz gets up my nose. So, I'm making one out of Purple/green malabrigo yarn that I snatched off the shelves of Village Yarn and Tea. SIGH.. like I need more yarn.. is a sickness. Yarn Vampire?
Marshall was fired.. think I mentioned that and got a new job at Wowrack
The verdict on this job is still OUT. He's used to things being done perfectly and they *ahem* are a mess. It remains to be seen if he can downgrade his quality or upgrade theirs.
Jerico has now gone back to his ship and I have my room back. Spinning again.. now that I have my spinning chair back (a comfortable bentwood chair) and the lil tv. Busy spinning the lovely yarn I got from Emma at St. Distaff.
mmm, thats really all the news for now. The weather is clearing and I'm getting Spring cleaning fever. mmm, maybe its just hot flashes.. hee hee
OH OH oh, on a Grandkid note.. Trysten is going to be 6!! Can't believe he's that old already!

Oh I'm Alive...Well, Kinda

Quick update. New Computer, means New games, means not much blogging.
First thing, I bought for the new computer was the game Oblivion and all its expansions. At the moment I'm am rushing around killing everything and just realized.. I've turned into a Vampire..geeez! Don't you just hate when that happens!!!!
Lots of things have happened since I blogged last.
I finished one the cowls/smoke rings I was working on. After I'd totally finished it I realized it was to big..OH NOW, I check the needles. Pffft! They were 8's and were supposed to be 6's.. *Smacks self in head* No biggie.. so I control felted it. Just enough that its just the right size. Only problem with it now is that its fuzzy and tthe fuzz gets up my nose and eyes. So, now I'm making another of non fuzzy yarn in a lovely Purple and Green handpainted yarn. Oh ya.. on size 6's...*blush*.
Also, New is Jerico is home for a month. So, my yarn room is pretty unaccessible but I'm very glad to have him here. AND... Marshall lost his job. Why, you ask? Beats the shit outa me?? From what we can tell he made to much money and they had to cut back. No worries tho. He already has had a walkthough of a company he's wanted to work for .. for years.. and not building server racks but possibly just working with them. Believe me .. theres a huge difference. Some kids grow up wanting to be policemen or Firemen. Not my kid. He wanted, more than anything, to be a Network administrators assistant. Not, the guy that over sees but the guy who fixes and troubleshoots. Gives ME a headache.
So, I'm knitting and trying to figure out how to become un-Vampired... I hate being a vampire ..all those skin melting sun problems. Hee hee
