Cabin fever post #1
*Everyone, and I mean everyone I meet says they are suffering from the weather blues. I am so glad to hear this. I certainly cannot stand the grey, drizzle much more. So it is not just me! And ....it is not just you!
*I have to show Helo again. My best shot of him yet. Kittens are so easy ........and entertaining. They are however, difficult to shoot because they are so rarely still.
*Thanks for all the ideas for my neighbor Abby's vest conundrum. You are all such smart women and man. ( I count Elaines' Tom in the equation. To my knowledge he is my sole reader and knitter with a y chromosome. ) and THANK YOU TOM. (well Zach counts too, but he hasn't knitted anything in over a year....)
*Abby is rethinking the whole project. I'll let you know what she decided. So many brave steekers out there.
Whaddayanuts? Actually I am so very impressed with steekers.
*I've started a pair of Simply Ginny Socks by Anna Peck. When there is enough progress I'll post a picture.
Again, I will not let myself post if I quit on this pair before they are finished. This somehow keeps me very motivated.
*I placed an order with Simply Socks Yarn company. I had to call the place. I love phone orders. Computer orders and I get all huffy with each other. The woman who helped me was very nice. They have some sportweight sock yarn in Best of Rainforest 09 that she says will sell out quickly. That is not what I bought, but if any of you are looking for that yarn, she has it.
*Finally, I hope the back fairy is going to visit me at work tonight. My back is better but I need to keep improving. Why do you leave the back fairy? Any ideas?
