Of all the weekends it had to be this one.

Webs annual sale is this weekend.

This weekend is also my hubby's birthday and I planned a fun, (hopefully) exciting (don't rain don't rain) weekend out of town.

I'd obviously rather be with my hubby celebrating... but really the sale had to be this weekend?! And really, was it necessary to taunt me like that with emails? Not to mention the fact that I've been trying to get to webs for a while now and their normal (slightly short) hours haven't worked at all with my busy (insane) schedule.

Husband before yarn... I think it was in the vows or something- but webs, the emails were really cruel.

P.S. It's been crazy for a few weeks now... I know my posts have been few and far between. I'll be back in action soon!

It's almost yarn

See this little scrap of what almost looks like yarn.

Thats my first ever attempt at spinning anything! I was at a drop spindle demo- and gave it a whirl (literally... it whirls around like a top).

I was feeling a little intimidated about the fact that my spinning class is only a few weeks away and I know literally nothing about spinning. Never mind the fact that it's an intro to spinning class and therefore (as my husband says) I should know nothing about spinning. Here is where my perfectionism comes out, I want to know that I can at least spin something before I go and learn to spin (Yes- sweetie if you are reading this- I'm aware that makes no sense). But in my defense they said using the spindle would help when I tried to use the wheel.

Now I can rest assured that I know next to nothing about spinning. (It really is an ugly little lump of "yarn"... but the person doing the demo was so nice, she told me I was getting the hang of it... I seriously doubt that.)
