Last weekend we took a mini-vacation and headed up to Perrot State Park in Wisconsin. Nice views of the convergence of the Trempeleau and Mississippi Rivers.
It was blasted hot, I mean like Africa Hot, but not Saudi Arabia Hot. We did some canoeing, some fishing, some swimming and some sight-seeing. Up the way a bit is Merrick State park, which is also along the Mississippi, but would be better for fishermen. Ah well.
I spun and knitted up a coffee cozy along the way. It's in the van right now, wrapped around my cuppacino glass. There's also another bag or so that was knitted. This morning I was spinning and thinking of what needs to be done today and this week when my mother called about her computer again.
So I went down and looked at it. It refuses to talk to the modem, and I hate fussing with it. This time, I just took the CPU with me back home. Back at home, and just in time to dodge the rainshower, I wanted something done to prove I could be productive. So I grabbed some red cotton and made the prototype for the mummy sleeping bag liner. This was a project that Cliffy and I discussed about a month ago. It got put on hold while I sorted out the issues with the redneck school system and got ruddpupp situated at home.
The next thing to do is to put a tie around the channel by the head and send it off for Cliffy to try. If it passes muster, it will be made up repeatedly, but in silk.
