Well, today is the deadline for the big yellow machine company I work for to come to some agreement on the union contract with the union. If that doesn't happen today at noon, the union goes on strike. I haven't heard anything new about the company budging on anything, so I pretty much expect a strike. I wonder what it is like to cross a picket line? I volunteered yesterday to go out to the shop in the event there is a work stoppage. I think it'll be a nice change of pace...

Enough about depressing things like strikes...I went to the new yarn store last night. It was a decent size store. There was a lot of yarn, but I think there was too much Lion Brand. I feel that I can go to Michael's, Hobby Lobby, or JoAnn's if I want LB. When I go to a yarn store, I want to see the yarns that I can't get at those stores--Brown Sheep, Debbie Bliss, Rowan, etc. I bought two size 3 bamboo circs for the socks and three hanks of Cascade 220. I am not sure what I am going to do with the yarn, yet, but I am sure it will involve felting. I am sure I'll go back to the store, but I think I may stick to the internet to get what I want--and that's too bad!

So I started on the cuff of a sock with the two circulars. I am just doing ribbing, but I think it is already turning out nicely. I also did some more on the cabled scarf. It is so soft I want to wear it now! I may get weird looks in August, but I will have snuggly softness against my neck....

Can't wait to see the finished scarf! Let people stare! They're just jealous. :)
