I'm such a slacker!!!

Hi all just in case you didn't see yet...I am back up and running on ravelry. I haven't been knitting much but I did finish a pair of socks tonight.
Woolgirl sock club 2008 Yarntini sock yarn in "Plum Blossom" colorway
Pattern: from Knitting Vintage socks by Nancy Bush "Gentleman's Fancy Sock"

I've also been doing a little spinning. Here is what is on my bobbins.

Crown Mountain Farms in "We are the Champions" colorway

I am trying to make my first 3ply sock yarn. I think I might be spinning a bit to thick but we will see. I am loving it so far.

I also got my April shipment from the Spunky Eclectic Fiber Club. I love this colorway. It has all my favorite colors in it, especially blue :). It is Superwash Corriedale and 10% nylon...I am hoping to make sock yarn out of this too.

I leave you with a picture of the kiddos. It was so cute. The boys gave Cierra a controller for the playstation...to make it seem that she was playing the game with them. They were actually playing the Nintendo game cube :) Aren't they sweet. Just wait til she figures it out. She will throw a fit!

I will try and post more regularly but like I always say...don't hold your breath you might turn blue :) Thanks for the comments and emails. Happy knitting, spinning and crafting.

Pardon my french but What the fuck!? I know that it has been months since I have last blogged...with work, kids, knitting, spinning and all that jazz I keep myself pretty darn busy. A lot has happened around these parts since October. And most of my extra time is spent on the Internet drooling over all your lovely knitting and spinning projects on Ravelry. Well as of Yesterday I have been BANNED. I say what the fuck again. My only guess is that I got suspended by being associated with my sister, who,from what I understand has been banned too for being on some political forums. I on the other hand have NEVER talked politics online. Especially on Ravelry. I really don't like to talk politics much at all. I figure between politics and religion those can be some pretty touchy subjects. I choose to stay away from those sites/forums all together.
I was logging on to my ravelry page yesterday and I got on fine. Then my sister said that should couldn't get on and didn't know if there was something wrong with her Internet, so I tried to log in as her from my computer. I got a message saying that she was suspended until further notice. Needless to say she was pretty mad and could only assume that it was because she belonged to some republican group that had been banned or something like that. Then I got off with the phone with her and tried to log back in to my account and then I was banned. I sent an email to ravelry@legal.com hopefully this debacle is fixed by Monday. I have just been starting to fill better after my surgery that I had on Tuesday and I would really love to update my projects and see what all my rav friends have been up too. I just can't believe that I have been banned. Ugh...I still kind of pissed can you tell?!!
