Ten On Tuesday- 10 favorite Albums (You can listen to the whole thing)

This is a week of doctor's appointments and procedures for me and my family. Suffice to say, and I don't mean to offend, I had to drink the gallon of windshield washer fluid and end up with Baboon bum. 'Nuff said.
1. Early Days- Led Zeppelin
2. Latter Days- Led Zeppelin
3. Meddle- Pink Floyd
4. All Loreena McKennitt
5. 20 Years of Jethro Tull
6. Foxtrot- Genesis
7.Yessongs- Yes
8. Goodbye Yellowbrick Road- Elton John
9. Hero & Heroine- Strawbs
10. Any and all  The Smiths.

That's all I could think of. I listen to alot of different music. Lately some King Diamond- who is brilliant.

I don't have alot to show you in terms of knitting- I plan to write up the free sock pattern as soon as I'm done here, and I have to order some more yarn to be dyed for my Mountain Pines shawl. The chickies at BMFA are awesome and I wish I lived in Oregon so I could hang with them.
 Mr. Clawed turned 1 on the 15th.
He is my honey-bear kitty. I just adore him.

Hope you are having some great Spring weather- we finally are.

Fleece out-

Ten On Tuesday- 10 Things You Do To Calm Down

I am like a duck- calm on the outside, but paddling like mad underneath. I don't tend to get as emotional as I used to, but when it happens:

1. A cup of tea. Or a whole pot.
2. Breathe deeply.
3. Wish I still smoked, so I could have a cigarette.
4. Knit.
5. Think of a nice place by the sea.
6. Sort out a drawer.
7. Throw out some stuff.
8. Think of people who have it so much worse.
9. Go for a walk.
10. Have a full-on, snotty cry.

Maybe I just take things more in my stride, and that's another benefit of maturing. 
This is the view of the backyard yesterday. It's cold, and we're supposed to be getting more snow later in the week. Would have been nice in December.
I have had this sheep footstool for a long time. I decided to get her a sheep bell and collar from a livestock supply place- looks amazing.
I spun some Polwarth from Into The Whirled. The colour is Pamukkale.
I am now spinning some Element#5 in BFL. The colours are electric!
I am going great guns on my Gansey- if you look closely you can see the initials over the ribbing.
Clawed says he really isn't chewing at that plant....
...see?

Fleecin' out.
