absolutely nothing to blog about.
Knitting. Can’t blog about the knitting since I am testing a pattern and it’s hush hush until it’s off the needles. Also with Raverly going strong, even if I could blog about it, it seems redundant. But rest assured I am still knitting. Oh, I just thought of something to tell you ….. do you remember the project, from hell as it turned out? The last you heard, it had entered the deep freeze to get rid of suspected bugs. I am still not sure if it ever did have bugs, since the pugs have made swiss cheese of the screens in my den windows.
Well I finally finished that godforsaken thing and it was delivered to the recipient this weekend. I am not sure if this detail ever made it into the saga, but in the intervening years, the woman it was knit for had stomach banding surgery so the end result is WAY too big! As many things go with me, that story started out so beautifully all goodness and generosity and ended with vitriol and judgments. Knitting friends have assured me that I have gained some good karma in finishing that project, I am not so sure. Didn’t the amount of bitching I did take away at least some, if not all of the happy goodness? With knitting is it only a question of whether you finish or does ‘how you play the game’ come into it?
look at that, I did have something to tell you!
Getting back to the things I cannot blog about. I cannot tell you that both D#1 and D#2 are in the middle of romantic love stories at school. Yes, they are both head over heels and hearing about one of them I actually said the words, ‘I am not this cool’. But I cannot tell you. unless you call me on the phone.
I have been working full time at the knitting store for the past few weeks. The owner’s mother had some surgery and I have been filling in hours. I have some good stories about some nutty customers, one even starts out ‘there was this old lady with a black eye’ ….. but I cannot tell you. Again, unless you call.
gotta run, the phone is ringing ……
