this weekend we escaped on friday night and stayed in girdwood. they have a ton of snow and it was falling all night friday and then in the morning. there were 9 of us in the cabin. everyone else went to a bluegrass concert at the sitzmark so buku and i took advantage of the quiet time and stayed in with the dogs.
last night we went to the roller derby. yes, anchorage has a roller derby – Rage City Rollergirls. one of our survey friends is a member of the team. it was so much fun though it was not a close game/match/bout(?). we played a team from fairbanks.
this is the only photo i managed to get. the girls move way too fast, and my action photography is not great!
i am way behind on all of my projects. i managed to finish this hat while in hawaii. i actually like it better than the first hat (even before i felted the crap out of it).
ANDi got my second month of fiber in the mail! if you are a member of Lapoli‘s club, and you haven’t received yours yet, and you want to be surprised when your package comes (which i’m sure it already has – i am in alaska so was probably last to receive) STOP HERE.
around christmas, when i was learning to spin and got my wheel, i bought myself 3 months of fiber (12 oz. total of HANDPAINTED fluffiness) for a screaming deal.
i still have yet to finish spinning January’s fiber (see post). receiving this beautiful fiber will definitely encourage me to get the first month spun up. i love this fiber and was recently looking on etsy for a nice bright blue…
gotta get spinning!
