Fit To Be Tied

This place...



...combined with these people...



...made for a fantastic weekend away from the hustle and bustle of LA!

The lovely couple above decided to tie the proverbial knot after 17 years of togetherness sans knot. So, when they asked me to officiate their nuptials I could hardly refuse for I love them both dearly and well, this gave me a reason to get ordained. Yep, I am now Reverend LadyLinoleum...

Stop laughing!

I assure you, I did a good job as officiant. Really! I was very appropriate. I didn't wear anything even remotely adorned with crocheted meat...

Ahem...

The offspring had a great time after the wedding, which was apparently too boring for any self-respecting tween.



By the way, this deer had faith in my officiant abilities...



Anyway, we all had a brilliant time. I was able to get some much needed rest AND a total of ten uninterrupted hours of knitting time in the car while traveling to and from our destination due to husband behind the wheel. In addition, I also had a chance to visit a crafty depot in Bishop, California, the likes of which we do not often see in sunny SoCal...Ben Franklin! They had on display my beloved DMC size 8 perle cotton in at least 30 colors. Can't find that anywhere 'round here! Yes, I made a purchase...one can never have too much thread or yarn available to oneself. I know, I'm preaching to the choir.



So yeah, MuseLinoleum is back. Can we all give thanks the lord-y for her return??? Okay, so my neurotic outburst of a few posts ago may have not been as warranted as it seemed at the time...

Um yeah, look at this totally neato dead tree!



I know, I need to chill...

Question:

Where does one purchase yarn in the Auckland, New Zealand area? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone???

I found this, this, and this.

Also, I'm glad your muse is back, but you'll still be making a fuckling, right? I expect one from Lena, too, of course.

We had a friend officiate our nuptuals and it was awesome -- such a great thing having someone close to you seal you for life in a "contract with the state" as she called it. Funny lady. Congrats and welcome home, with your Muse and all.

How lovely in every way! But no crocheted meat? Maybe for your next wedding.
