I finished the itty bitty sweater in cottonease. it wasn't so bad, once i used proper needles and really read the pattern, lol.

now i'm working on the new PFH. remember that red & black Lion brand thick & chunky? well, i've ripped this sucker out 4 times. i keep losing a stitch somewhere. so now, on any rows where i just knit or purl, i count stitches. if on the next row, i 've lost one, i rip back, and reknit. this is going slow, and i had wanted to have it to wear to oregon (airports are frigid, sigh). it is so very soft, though, considering the stuff looks like rope, lol.

took my mom to the dentist. she had 4 teeth pulled, and fitted the dentures. of course, since she's on blood thinners, things didn't go quite as planned, and i had to take her back. she's fine now, but i was a bit worried for a while there.

now i get to go on saturday, and hear the hygenist bitch at me about my "lack of dental care." fine, you tell the butcher of a dentist who put braces ona 10 year old kid with a small mouth to lay off, and i'll do better. it hurt to brush so much when i had those braces, that i quit brushing. that's the main reason why they took them off. i still carry the scars in my mouth, not to mention the mental scars. i'm trying to be better about going to the dentist, but, well, ya know. at least i've made it more often lately.

work is boring, andi'm getting antsy about going to oregon. iwant it to be now!

miss bitchy britches (and sorry, vi, a cattle prod is not an option, i had one used on me (wish i was kidding, sigh)) swears she's not drinking, but i want to know who's beer cans are those on her computer desk? i know she has a few "legal" friends (drinking age is 21 in the states, for you canadians, aussies, etc.), but i havne't seen them around, so they're either here when i'm not, or she's drinking and trying ot hide it from me. of course she's not speaking to me, so this was left in response to the note i left for her about finding the beer cans. we'll see, i suppose.

you might be a redneck if you refuse to slide in softball because you don't want to crush your cigarettes
you might be a redneck if your dogs are still chasing your car a mile down the road.

Pattern of the Day: hills purse. this looks intriguing. it looks like domino work, or something like that, but it says it's slip stitch. i gotta check this out.

What i'm reading:
The Witches of Karres by James Schmitz
listening to At Bertram's Hotel by Agatha Christie. i'm really enjoying these books on tape! need to reserve some more, i'm almost half way through with this one, and i finished the other earlier this week.
Kids Knitting by melanie falick. i've been hearing raves about this, so i thought i'd check it out (literally, lol)

have a nice day!

I am your Sockapal2za sock buddy!
I was reading your blog and found it very interesting! I have a few questions for you:
1. fiber preference?
2. washability preference?
I got all of your other requirements, including color and multiple sizes, and I am on the lookout for the perfect yarn. let me know!
thanks! I will check your blog for your answers!

PS- good luck with your "cheeky one" (my mom's terms)...sounds like she might need a reality check ( i know i did when i was that age).

Ouch, the dentist! I hate the dentist and totally understand where you're coming from. Funny, when I went to this new dentist, one of the questions on the form was, "Do you have any phobias about being attended to by a dentist." LOL
