Remember the other day when I said there was nothing better than a package on your front porch?
I found something better – the day there is package on your front porch, there is another waiting in your mailbox!
Connie, blog reader, email friend and fellow Quitter sent me a surprise! Tea tree oil toothpicks and mints! I haven’t tried the toothpicks yet, but will let you know how they are. She also included a card with a picture of her knitted socks – here they are! Thank you so much Connie – those socks look terrific, by the way.
Work is continuing on Halcyon – it looking fab, if I do say so myself. I surprised myself last night with some adept fiber gymnastics. I noticed an uncabled cable five rows back and rather than rip the whole five rows, I selectively tinked back. "Holy crap, I’m good", I thought to myself. In the midst of this delicate operation, it crossed my mind to take some pictures – but would have wrecked havoc with my concentration. I couldn’t even watch Desparate Housewives while this was going on! Speaking of television — anyone watching Show Dog Moms & Dads on Bravo? this is shaping up to be a good program.
I am waiting for my yarn to arrive to start my Spearfish socks. The race over there is well underway – I hope that no one has gone to their bookies to put their money on me. I’m a mudder and the track is high and dry.
do you think connie would knit me socks? only kidding really. i watched show dogs last week. those people were funny-real characters just like ‘best in show’. i am fighting the thought of watching it again this wed.which do you find funniest?
Hooray for you for tinking back! It’s such a sense of accomplishment when the cable is fixed!
I haven’t seen the Show Dog thing, but I have to confess that I like the Super Nanny show because it makes my own children look like such angels.
I gotta joing the Spearfish thing. Not that I’ll knit that fast. I’m not even in the running. It would just be a fun one to join.
I dub thee Tinker Extraordinaire. And I’m so glad to see that you’re still a quitter. :)
