Out with the Old

Our gigantic annual neighborhood garage sale was Saturday, and while the weather could have been better we did manage to make over $200. After giving Mom and Dad their cut for a few big items they sold, Kevin and I each had a pretty good chunk of change to spend however we saw fit. Kevin, of course, went out immediately to buy Leonard Cohen's Live in London and a Primus DVD. I will absolutely listen to Leonard Cohen, but it will take a chair, some rope, and Scotch tape to my eyelids to make me watch Primus. Kevin, for some reason, is a superfan of Les Claypool, and I refuse to even argue with him anymore on the subject: we agree to disagree.

I spent my money on something Kevin doesn't have any interest in either: knitting! I bought a fab-u-lous set of interchangeable knitting needles and some laceweight yarn. The colorway is Jewels: isn't it yummy?

I have a 13-month-old, a job, and a house to clean (or not clean), so lace is a dream for the future. It requires counting, and concentration, and being able to finish a row in one sitting, and that probably won't all come together for at least five or six years, but it's nice to know that I have a stash of lovely wool waiting for me.

I don't have the 13-month-old, but with the house and job, but I have the same problem. I can't find time to use the awesome wool yarn I bought in Reykjavik a couple of years ago. Some day?
