Don't look back

Don't look back

A new day is breakin'

It's been too long since I felt this way

I dont mind where I get taken

The road is callin'

Today is the day

I can see

It took so long to realize

I'm much too strong not to compromise

Now I see what I am is holding me down

I'll turn it around

I finally see the dawn arrivin'

I see beyond the road I'm drivin'

Far away and left behind

-Tom Scholz

As the first anniversary of the death of my one-time coworker, Brad Delp, approaches, I thought I'd post some lyrics from one of my favorite Boston songs. What, you thought I was referring to something else?! :P

Seriously, to all who expressed concern, and took the time to email--thank you. I'm doing fine. It isn't just fear of reprisal that kept me from publicly flaming the shop or the owner; I saw no point in it. Yet since I saw no reason to keep my experience a secret, I put up my email address. But now it's time to put it behind me, as I have much bigger fish to fry.

And here are a couple of fried fish.

I picked up a few balls of inexpensive, worsted merino on sale, and gave them a dunk in the crockpot. Top: "Tai Shan". Bottom: "Incredible Plum". My daughter, who (along with me-blush) is a fan of Aqua Teen Hungerforce, and in the Halloween episode, little Meatwad was wearing a purple mask because he wanted to be the Incredible Plum. I guess you had to have seen it, but I thought it was funny!

Today I took a little road trip to Pacific Wool & Fiber in Dundee. Except that Dundee isn't where I thought it was, so it took me about twice as long to get there. But I did find it, just before running out of gas. Which would have sucked. I picked up 1700 yards of some nice, worsted superwash merino, some dyes, and ordered one of these.

I couldn't find a picture of the one I'm getting, but it sort of looks like that. It's a skein winder. I needed the large size, which will make 1 1/2 to 2-yard skeins. A new toy, goody!

Last but not least, the winner of last week's yarn contest, Sabrina, has no blog and left no email, so I have no way of contacting her. I haven't heard from her yet. If anybody can get hold of her, would you please tell her to get in touch with me? I'll wait until the end of the month, and if she hasn't checked in by then, I guess I should have another drawing, no? Somebody ought to win yarn!

Look at your cool new toy!

Has it really almost been a year since he died? Heavens.
I love that song, too! I think I wore out that Boston album back in the day....(she says, revealing how really OLD she is!)

What's up with people entering contests with no contact info and not checking back? I had the same on my contest and finally had to redraw for another winner! So, in my own self-interest---pick me! pick me! ;)
Hey, you got an award! Details on my blog :)
