This and that

So I have officially survived my second day of working in the mill. Not sick of yarn or fibers as of yet, but I do have to say that my everything hurts! Omg, you never realize just how out of shape you are until you have to be on your feet for 8+ hours straight and walk about 12 miles in that time period. I need to get a pedometer just to validate that, but trust me it sure feels like that much. I came home covered in alpaca hair, dirty from head to toe, and pleased with a job well done. I also managed to snag a bag (huge garbage bag) full of unwanted fibers to use to stuff my animals that I have started making. Sweet! Thank you to my wonderful boss 🙂

Now to quit sneezing and get to work on my dragon that I started last night. It is one of my first attempts at amigurumi (sp?) and it is turning out decent so far, we shall see when the end product gets done. Course with it being almost a foot tall is it still considered a tiny stuffed animal? Or has it graduated to a new class, hmmm…

Oh, did anyone else enter Red Heart’s Contest on their site? It’s for a Wednesday night crochet along or some such thing, I think it ends in December but please don’t quote me on that, head on over and check it out if you haven’t already. It’s always a win win to showcase your projects and to get the chance to win free yarn and tools 🙂

Hopefully my next post will be of my completed dragon, but honestly I am so tired right now I see me falling asleep on the couch instead of crocheting at the moment. Maybe a nap and then crochet, sounds like a deal to me 🙂
