Or how to keep in touch with your best knitwits when you live 3,000 miles away from them

Hi girls!

Well Mim, sounds like you're going to be spinning like a pro before you know it! Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I don't have access to a computer at home (it died and I have no idea when I'll be able to afford another one - needless to say - Alex is having a heart attack) so I normally try to post before I leave on Friday and just couldn't think of anything much to say yesterday - which I know is highly unusual! As for the Wed. night crew. Julie and Andrew have a bunch of stuff going on for the next several weeks. Andrew's brother is engaged and there's something going on along those lines so we just had to have a sort of cut-off date. I'm assuming that we'll resume again after the New Year - whether there or somewhere new. Saw Kristin in the grocery store a few days ago and she told me that she wanted to get with me (and whoever else) and meet somewhere on WEd. nights if possible. I haven't seen or talked to Arati in so long and I miss her. It's been even longer since I've talked to Marcie. I've kept an eye on her N&O blog though. I think that everyone just has so much going on. Julie and Andrew were the only ones that could make it this past weekend to the fiber festival in Asheville and I haven't been able to get up with her to see what she purchased. I spoke with her Friday afternoon and I know she was excited about going. I'm now excited about what she bought!

VV I was showing someone the other night the small hank of cashmere that I got from you one night. It's just a leftover bit but everyone was oohing and aahing over it. I just want to hang it around my neck. No one could believe that somene I knew had actually "spun" it. See how impressive the whole spinning thing is. It's not enough to make a scarf but people have suggested that I use it around the next of a sweater or around the wrists of gloves. Of course I just can't imagine myself making gloves - what with those dreaded double points and all. I may have to break down though. Then again - I just love looking at it and hanging it around my neck. Maybe I'll start a new yarn trend - you just hang hanks around your neck! LOL.

Okay girls - your turn.
