I've been neglecting my store. Over a year ago, I canceled my TV cable subscription because I was addicted to the telly and wasted copious amounts of time sitting on my butt doing absolutely nothing. I thought Netflix, and the 2-hour movies I'd rent, wouldn't feed my addiction and for the most part, that was true. But I've been renting TV shows and those seem to push my addiction button. I completed the first season of Torchwood over the weekend and that's when I realized my addiction had risen its ugly head yet again. I was a bit obsessed with the show. (It didn't help at all that several of the characters are HOT... oh, and the writing and acting are excellent. I highly recommend it for those of you with more self-control than myself.) So, the TV and DVD player stay off during the week. I'm going to make friends with my radio again and visit the library for books on tape. I'm still working on an order for a couple of spindle boxes - an order I should have completed last week - and I need to make more to put up in my store. I can't do that watching the telly.
My new wheel was a no-show this weekend. A thousand curses on the UPS man who dared to show up at the store without it! I expect I'll be making a special trip to pick it up after work on Tuesday. I'm not sure what happened, but my shawl project got derailed. I've got 10 ounces of that soft Polwarth/kid mohair blend to spin up on the new wheel and I'll need to buy more.
My new sock got some knitting attention this weekend. I'm almost ready to turn the heel:
I'd really like to learn to knit a heel flap; I've fallen out of love with short row heels. Besides, I like the look of the heel flap. I just need to find directions for it.
