Hissy fits

I finished the Ella Rae yarn beret and scarf today. I can't decide who will get the set, but I do know I'll be very proud to give them to a friend. The Ella Rae yarn has reminded me of the colors that water can be in the summertime, whether pool water or nature's water. I cannot say enough about the yarn itself. I bought it at the beginning of summer at 3 Bags Full in Northbrook. This yarn doesn't know how to pitch a fit. It just un knots itself if a tangle comes about. It has a bit of spring in its step and is so so soft. (The Beret is yet another from NOT JUST more SOCKS book by Sandi Rosner. The lace scarf is the simplest bundle of 6 rows garter and 9 rows yo, K2 tog.) My mouth is sore today. Tried an omelette this morning. If you know my eating habits you know I do not like eggs. But when they are outnumbered by cheese in omelet form I do love them. I have been having a malt a day. Cottage cheese. Tonight's dinner is cream of wheat....oh and coffee is just so darn good right now. Today was the all time high for hisses around here. All in good time, all in good time. Fireman and I are so enjoying having a baby around the house again..kittens are so dang easy!

Sorry to hear about you mouth. :-( Hope it is feeling better soon.

Kittens are just too darn cute with their antics.

I can't remember the last time I had Cream of Wheat! My mom would make it for us when we weren't feeling well. I still love it.

Your hat and scarf are beautiful!

Beautiful knits! I bought some Ella Rae (I'm assuming the same ... type) but I gifted it. Hmmm... might need to find me some.

Love the beret and scarf! especially the color!!
I remember eating cream of wheat growing up but now I prefer oatmeal.

The beret and scarf are gorgeous! Any one would be proud to wear them and say, "A friend made them for me."

I'm looking forward to cream of wheat when the weather cools a bit. I can't stand to turn on the stove in this weather (still triple digits) but I did boil a dozen eggs last night.

WHo knew there were so many soft foods in the world? How about mashed potatoes?

(this post was days ago - I am sure you are feeling better by now)
