Welcome

I'm Laura. I am female, 31, a gamer, a bookworm, a knitter, a spinner, a tatter, pierced, tattooed, musical, vehemently geeky and occasionally ineptly artistic.

Hi!

Last night (or, perhaps, very early this morning) I finished weaving in the ends of the last of this years' Christmas presents.

As yesterday I had promised myself sushi if I finished the edging, tonight I took myself off to the Drunken Fish and am now very full of edamame, makimono, tea and really exceptional amounts of pickled ginger. Thank goodness for waitresses who leave one alone with her dinner and her ebook reader for long stretches at a time!

Taking myself out to dinner is really one of my favorite things to do.

It was a banner day on other fronts, as well - I picked up my new spinning wheel on the way home from work! It is a Kromski Prelude, and I expect that putting it together will be an ordeal - Susan said "only an hour!" but she does it several times a year. I expect it will take me rather longer.

The, ahem, present has been soaking in the washing machine for a couple of hours now, so I am off to drain it and see what magic blocking will work. Perhaps I will also put in my favorite Pride and Prejudice movie* and do some tatting, and really round out a perfect day.
