Your capsule appears to be a Cephalexin 250mg.

know what?  It totally is!  I haven't seen a capsule form of cephalexin before, only the tablet form of the 'generic' Keflex Smiley I'm guessing that this is an American trade name form?

Just because I couldn't resist:

So, remember how I said I was going to wait until tomorrow to open my package?  Yeah, that idea went straight out the door when I saw the big envalope it was in Cheesy  Let me just say right here... I got ROYALLY SPOILED  so, here's a warning.  LONG POST and pic obese (kinda went overboard, that's how chuffed I am!).

The pics aren't *that* great because it's dreary outside, and I didn't want to risk having my goodies wrecked by the dampness that's out there.  So all pics were taken on my hope chest by the south (? I have no clue, actually) facing window in my living room.


Starting bottom left: booga bag in wonderful earthy tones (and honestly, I think the amount of green in it is perfect!) and is awesome and just what I need to take my knitting projects with me to work when I start on the second.
going clockwise:
An awesome dpn holder which matches the bag well (in my opinion) and will fit perfectly in the bag.  There will be a close up of the roll in just a sec.
Then comes some little packets of insta-smoothie goodness Cheesy Which, when I have frozen some ice, and have some milk in the house, I will be trying Smiley Never seen these before!
And lastly in this pic is some SUPER smooshy angora goat mohair!  Which I have just been smooshing and rubbing since I got it.  It's even right on my keyboard so it's not far from smooshing distance.

DPN case inside:


DPN case outside:


The thing I love about this case is that you could either roll or fold it.  The elastic is just the right amount of stretchiness.  Also.  I love the button.  It's *almost* a maple leaf (therefore it is to me), and being a proud Canadian... it makes me smile all over Cheesy

Next Pic:


Some freaking awesome cards!  They are of dragonflies and sushi.  Because those are two of my favourite things Cheesy  There's a set of ten (two of each card)  I may have to save the one with the pink background and frame it...



This pic gives a bit of a hint at the awesome circ holder I was sent.  Which, by the way, is totally reversable.  Envy me.  You know you want to Wink  There's also the S&B Knit happens journal.  Which I have been coveting, but haven't had the money to buy. So. Freaking. Awesome.  It will also be stored in the booga bag of awesomeness.

Circ Holder Front:


I love the blue and yellow.  I don't think I'll be hanging this on a coat hanger like it suggests... I think this beautiful holder is going to get some sort of dowel thing and hung on my wall.  I can't even imagine having the patience to get the middle motif so perfectly centred

Circ Holder back:


The back of the circ holder is also awesome Smiley I love the detail of the centre panel motif being used in the hanger tabs.  And the yellow is so cheery!

So.  Last pic.  Definitely my most most most favourite item out of the whole bunch.  I immediately snatched him up and loved him to exhaustion.  He's currently resting in my bed getting his strength back.


It is totally a capsule.  An anthromorphosized capsule.  Look at his cheery grin, and bright eyes.  How could a girl NOT love him??  I have to look up which capsules have this colouring, and then he will be named after the chemical name Cheesy

BlooCanoe... you are such a freaking awesome swap partner.  I can't remotely get over how awesome the whole package is Cheesy I will be playing with everything all day Smiley Thank you so so so so so so much!!

so, these pics are pretty bad because I slept the daylight away... I'll try to get better ones when there's some sun.


This is the last of the superwash merino that I got from hoxierice.  I call it limegrass.  It mostly is a thin fingering weight, done with reeeeeally thin singles and then navajo plied.


This one is itchypeach because it was murderously itchy on my skin while I was spinning it, but not so much after it was spun.  Mysterious.  It's about a sock weight.


This is some of spunky eclectic's wool blend in atomic melon.  It really is retina searing and I fear for my eyes everytime I look at it.  It's really soft and sproingy and comes in at a thick and thin sock weight. 

Everyone has such beautiful yarn this week!  I love the Sh*t bowl, though it has a very unfortunate name.  The granny smith coloured roving that SlickMariaVic dyed makes me drool with wanting to touch.  And thank you isamax for the minitut on how to maked felted yarn because I was really curious after seeing what you'd done.  Soooo beautiful everyone!

So, I posted my pics in the wrong area, but here are the ones I spun up of hoxierice's gorgeous superwash:


little bit thinner than sock weight, very soft and touchable


cunky-ish, very smooshy.  Colours are just a tad duskier than this

Thanks again Hoxierice!
Will post the sock weight that I'm working on now when it's finito

I know this is kind of a double post (as I posted in the fiber friday for april 20 in the spinning section), but This is the yarn I spun from the superwash merino roving that hoxierice sent me:


Spun into really fine singles and then navajo plied


spun into chunky singles and then plied back onto itsself. 

thanks again hoxierice!  I think that the pink/purple might have to be made into a hat for a little person to put into the "my friends are going to have kids when I'm not ready for it" pile

So, I know it's well past Friday, but I had these done by Friday, and when I tried to take pics... the battery was so dead it wasn't funny and then it took forever to charge. 


This one is a superwash merino that was hand painted by my partner hoxierice.  I call it barbie wannabe because of the pink and purple.  It's spun much chunkier than I usually do, but it suits it I think.


This is also a superwas merino handpainted by hoxierice which I personally think looks like emeralds, you know, the good ones that have a bit of blue fire in them?  I spun it in superfine singles and then navajo plied it.  In the end, it's slightly thinner than the sock yarn I bought commercially.  I was hoping there'd be enough for footies... but I think there's just not enough yardage.  I think it would self stripe awesomely.


This one is an alpaca that I spun pretty fine and then navajo plied.  There isn't much there because I wasn't sure how it was turning out.  It kind of has a mohair halo type deal to it.  I think I may spin the rest a bit thicker... I'm not sure if really fine is the way to go.

8  Should it stay or should it go? in Spinning: Completed Projects by pharmgirl147 on: March 03, 2007 09:47:15 AM

So, I"m not really all that sure about this stuff I've spun.  It's the Chocolate covered cherries colourway (merino) by Spunky Eclectic and a chocolate brown shetland that I got locally.  I'm just not sure about the way it looks.  I'd like some opinions as to what you guys think Smiley

Full shot:


Closer:


Almost inside:


So, basically what I'm debating is to finish spinning the shetland and ply it with two strands of the merino, or just navajo ply the merino.  I was thinking of making THIS with it.

Thanks for any advice y'all pass on to me!

This is from Ruby'sdaughter.  It's one of the little teaser chunks she sent with my order.  If I remember correctly it's a superwash and called winter something or other.  It was soooo creamy to work with.  I just wanted to snorgle it all day.  I don't know how much is in this little hank, probably about twentyish meters (if that)  This is one of my first attempts at navajo plying and I'm pretty pleased with it.


This is also from ruby'sdaughter.  It's her colourway Evergreen.  This is the first stuff I navajo plyed.  I really like the way it turned out.  THe greens blend into eachother so subtley.  I think it's merino.  It was so nice to work with.  This was actually finished last friday, but I was in Regina, so I wasn't able to post.

I really like navajo plying... it takes my freakishly thin stuff and turns it into something around the size I like to knit with.  Yay for navajo plying!

Thanks for looking!

I know that this is late, but this is the second batch of yarn that I've spun.  It was soooo much easier than the last stuff due to the fact that this one didn't have felty blobules in it.  I don't know what the fibre content is as it just said "wool".  There are two ounces, and it was spaced dyed with blue, red, and white (not by me).  I andean plyed it because there was only almost a bobbin full.  I decided to call it Field Berry, because the colours reminded me of blue berries, black berries, strawberries, etc all mixed into one bowl.

Almost whole skein:
