SOOO not funny

I just made my second-ever 911 call since I’ve been here. There’s a brush fire across the street, and Nana is out watering the house and yard, even though the wind is steady to the east and we’re separated by a dirt road. The firemen are on their way – all five of them.

I’m having weird sleep issues. I don’t like that. Tomorrow, I get to pick up my new washer and dryer. I like that.

I’m going to have another funny video up very soon, but this one does not feature Daniel – it features my |/| /- |) 133t power tool skillz.


EDIT: Here it is (and, yes, there’s some baby in it.)

    That is sooo cool. I’d have never thought of using a power drill as part of a yarn winder. So very cool.

    Was that lace weight yarn? Just curious.

      Yeah. That was Knit Picks’ Shadow lace weight yarn in purple (I don’t remember the exact name of the colorway). I have six hanks of it in deep red and ten in purple, so finding a fast and relatively painless way to de-hank it is really a top priority for me.

      And, if I hadn’t dropped the hank between the untucking and the holding, it might not have gotten quite so massively tangled. I still got over 70% of it on the paper roll, though.

    So yeah, was going to go hang out with you guys tonight, but you never called, and Joe never showed up.

    I guess I will see you tomorrow then? Might see about swinging by on the way out or something. Not sure at this point. Still de-junking.

    • February 28, 2008

      Yeah, when I called Joe to tell him, he wasn’t at his desk, and by then, it just escaped me.

      I’ll be by in the early afternoon, I think, and perhaps throughout the evening. When are you working again…?

      And you definitely need to come by before you leave. We can’t get everyone there to see you off.

    Way Cool!

    Hey Dawn – I have the Peacock Pattern – if you want it I can drop it by.
    Hope the fire is a thing of the past. Fires in this dry area are truly frightening.
