Who wants some silk?

Today, I have two skeins of 100% silk to give away- a heavy worsted weight yarn hand- dyed by Serendipity Fibers (that’s me!). The yarn is my Asha Handpainted Silk Singles, in a limited- run colorway or peaches, pale pinks and yellows called Bunny. (It is an Easter thing, I’m told. This is what happens when you let friends name colorways after a few glasses of Madiera wine.) 165 yards of singles Bombyx silk per skein. This stuff is amazing, people- like buttah.


Want a skein? There are two skeins here; each will gain a new home this weekend. Comment below with the funniest, most embarrassing or the most interesting thing to happen to you all week; the Random number generator will pick one winner, and I’ll handpick the other based on who made us laugh the longest. The deadline for comments is… (excuse me as I randomly pick a time)… 1200 Eastern time, 15 March 2008. Good luck!

Random bit of other- blog promotion: I’ve been poring over Mochimochi Land lately, and I’m just crazy about this blog. I have a huge soft spot for amigurumi, but it’s usually done in crochet and my crochet- fu is pretty lacking. This site has pictures, info and patterns of knit amigurumi (which I may be mispelling, but which isn’t in my spell check) and damn. Damn. Damn! The cute factor is stratospheric.


I mean, really. That’s fantastic, and it is so going on my Ravelry queue -which, by the way, is absolutely out of hand as of late. Anyways- go check it out. There are even free patterns!

(Notes to self: next entry- photos of spinning, where is that book website?, photos of smoke ring, photos of poor sad sock.)

    the most embarrassing thing that happened this week… as was driving to school monday morning for choir practice, i was drinking hot tea, and spilled it on my lap. and of course i was running late and didn’t have time to go home and change pants, so i walked into the building looking like i had peed my pants (my mom brought me pants about 10 minutes later).

    I work in a hydrology and soils lab for the USDA, so obviously I work with soil/mud/dirt(call it what you like) a lot. I’m pretty much the least graceful woman on the planet because I ended up flinging little soil clods all over myself… on my face, down my shirt and bra, all over. Some even got in my mouth.
    Even I had to laugh at that. Only I can fling soil into my own mouth.

    Nothing funny has been happening to me this week, so I guess I will pray to the RNG.

    I was visiting someone. Upon leaving I looked around and searched for my glasses..only to be informed that these were on top of my nose.

    I’ve been having a pretty humor-free week as well. Now if it were the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you, I would have some stories to tell 😉

    Well, my 7 yr. old had her annual physical this week. (Natually, there was a urine sample involved.) Most Mommies equate that with being peed on, so maybe you could fill in the blanks… LOL Gotta love being a Mom! 🙂
    Ps. Why do they think that if they tilt their pelvis *forward* it will go into the cup?! All it does is go out of the toilet and get all over you. Don’t worry, I didn’t fall for it again, this year!

    Well, it’s tough to pick just one thing. I’m going back to last weekend for this one.
    I went home for the weekend for my mother’s birthday. When I got home, my sort-of-brother was there with his wife and new baby, so I was distracted. I put together some stuff for the laundry, and then had to grab the baby. When I finally got around to putting the clothes in, I didn’t check the pockets. Then changing them over with sort-of-brother there, I discovered my CELL PHONE at the bottom of the washer. Let’s just say they don’t respond well to the spin cycle. Tried to turn it on…nothing. Dried it out…nothing. Plugged it in…nothing. So I got in the car and drove the 45 minutes to the nearest Sprint store to replace it. Then the guy helping me get a new one remembered me from high school, and I had no idea who he was.

    Oh yeah…I forgot that I also managed to knock my coffee maker (it’s really a tea maker, but I use it for coffee) all over my desk at school in front of 7th graders. Luckily the only key on my keyboard that doesn’t work anymore is the decimal point on the number pad.

    most embarrasing. Well, I am a new nurse and just started a new job this last week. Last night I had to manually help a elderly lady with her fecal impaction. I got teased for the rest of the night by my coworkers!
