That title is just a sneaky way of saying “I don’t have time to write a full post tonight, but I need to post something before things get out of hand.”
So without further ado:
I got a drum carder for my birthday. This is the Louet Jr. and it is fantastic. Love Love Love it. I would recommend it to anyone in the market for a drum carder, the batts are huge and light and fluffy, and you can card an unreal amount of fiber at one time. Wonderful to spin from.

The girl-y sweater is proceeding nicely. I hate the green which ended up being very neon, but it will hopefully mellow out a bit when I get all the flowers embroidered on. It should be finished by Monday- with a complete post.
I knit a Ribwarmer (here on Ravelry) The girly sweater was driving me batty, mindless garter stitch therapy was in order. This is an end of 2 years gift for one of Nikolai’s preschool teachers – she is slightly shorter and thicker than I am, so it should fit well.
My dad and I went golfing with the boys today. It was their first time playing on a real course, and they had a blast. Above is Nikolai with his impeccable form – consistently driving the ball upwards of 70 yards.
