Fishing rod & reel....check!

Well, a long deserved vacation is upon us! AND BOY ARE WE READY!!
I don't know if there will be WiFi where we are going but the ole 'puter will be going with us just in case...we'll just have to wait and see.
I have found a new pattern for my purple CotLin~~check out this link SEE WHAT YOU THINK! Personally, I'm lovin' it!! I'm on my second pattern repeat (the picture only shows 1 repeat)...easy to remember, fun to knit.
I've got a new baby sweater to knit, my friend Sherry is going to be a Grandma again. Her second grandson is due in October.
Oh...I could keep naming all the projects I'm working on but my Ravelry queue is way out of hand!
I am taking my wheel and fiber for spinning too...Like Carole said in her post today, "only 10 minutes a day makes a difference" so I'm going to spin a little each day, though I'm sure it'll be more than just 10 minutes.
Sedalia is happening this weekend, I won't be there but I'll be thinking about all you "Fiber Hogs"...and wishing I was among you!! Oh, I'm in no need of any fiber or yarn...but it's the obsession to have it all and be around others who share the same desires. Believe me, I'm ready for anything....power outage, flood...
In my last post I showed you a picture of "sweet" Ace...I happened to remember this old picture that's weathered the test of time and being stuck to the refrigerator for almost 16 years. Yes, it's pretty nasty...who knows what's been splattered on it. I need to find the negative...
This is a SWEET Ace! Same window...same kitty! I'm not sure if y'all know but I've raised him since he was about 3 days old (his little brother & sister didn't make it). I bottle fed him and kept him warm by putting him in my shirt and fed him every 3 hours--even through the night. He would sit on my lap as I sat at the sewing machine, which I believe he always thought the whirr of the sewing machine was me purring. Now anytime I'm sewing he, though he's more than a lap full now, still jumps up in my lap and purrs right back at me. I'm being very facetious about him being "sweet", he is at times but has grown into such a grouchy old man. I guess he's earned it! At the moment he's still mad at me that I've taken his pillow away from him. His back still bothers him at times so who does he think he is? "Mr. LoveMachine"??
Hope you all have a REALLY great Memorial Day weekend and I'll see ya when I return....if I return!!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
