stash

Well, I’m still sick sick sick… a lingering cold turned into bronchitis and now maybe sinus infection. Third day on drugs and no improvement. Just ick.

I figured I could spend a bit of time here and there and update the stash on Ravelry. So today I was taking some photos, and in the Jamieson’sgasp!

jamieson moth eggs
What’s that? Webbing?? Little specky eggs??????

So even though I felt like shit, this is what I did this morning,
jamieson airing jamieson airing (2)

Opened all the skeins, picked through them, flung them about, hung them in the sun.

One of the “cornfield” (yellow) also had some damage… the offenders are on the left.

It’s supposed to freeze tonight. I say good… and if tomorrow’s sunny they’ll stay out there again. They are not going upstairs until they’ve been frozen for 48 hours or so… I think they’ll take turns in the freezer.

Thankfully this was the only bin infected… even with the cedar planks in the bin. I think I’ll add more cedar to the bin. But I only looked through maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the stash…

in other news around the house…

The dogs tend to watch the house across the street, for the loose dogs (which thankfully have of late not been loose, she finally built a fence for them in her back yard), and for any other item of interest (her cats in our yard) to bark at.

Here’s my solution:
new shades
I replaced the top down roman shades with top down/bottom up duet shades, and they match the floor! That’s my little nest on the couch, picture me, covered up in a blanket, sometimes knitting, watching not very good movies, napping, drinking tea…yada yada yada.

OMG OMG the library just called… discs 3 and 4 of Season 2 of The Tudors is in! I know what I’m doing tomorrow on that couch…

    I adore bottom-up shades! They didn’t exist when I was buying curtains for our upstairs bedroom windows (1983, I think) so I got curtain that covered the lower half of the window and a valance at the top — privacy, but light.

    Scary about the stash invaders! But so good about The Tudors.

    Dude – what a crappy string of luck you’re on! I hope that watching some “Tudors” helped ease the pain a little bit. And I hope those nasty critters are gone!!

    Feel better soon – In the meantime, it looks like I’ve got some blog reading to catch up on!
