About Me

My photo
Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Last night, and today

Last night I:
Finished sewing together BittyBit’s sweater. All that remains is the crocheted edging on the cuffs and all the way around the body. Finished the cuff, the heel flap, the heel turning, and the picking-up-of-stitches on the baby sock. This morning I finished the heel and am about halfway down the foot. Listened to “Shall We Dance” and watched occasionally, while accomplishing the first two items. As ever, when I watch a dance movie I want to get up and dance. I toyed briefly with the idea of getting in Lorelai and heading out to the singles’ dance. Very briefly; less time than it would have taken me to stand up and pirouette and sit back down.

Dorothy was right; there’s no place like home, Toto, no place like home. With or without a pair of ruby slippers.

After work on Thursday night and before going to the hospital to visit my friend, I stopped in at The Shabby Sheep, hoping to find orphan skeins of Claudia Handpainted to make more baby socks. I found five that I liked. Not showing you any of them, as some may end up in the vicinity of Bitty feet.

Random foodie observation: Yoplait now has a cherry-pomegranate blend. Seriously yummy. Now appearing in a refrigerator near you.

The Yarn Harlot is coming to Texas! And when I yeehaw’ed in her comments, she wrote me back! I have no idea what the rest of you will be doing on May 29, but if all goes according to plan, my camera, my knitting and I will be in a bookstore in Plano. I’ve requested two hours of PT that afternoon, so as to beat the northbound traffic and have plenty of time to browse before sitting down.

I think I should take my Knitty shirt to work that day and change into it when I leave the office.

What’s on the agenda today?
Memorial service
Dessert with Fourthborn; I almost never get one-on-one time with her, and she hates the phone even more than I do
Haircut
Finishing the baby sock [probably before the memorial service]
Crocheted edging on BittyBit’s sweater?
Nap?
Studying my Sunday School lesson?
Buying more yogurt

You forgot hanging out at my house because that's where all the cool kids are.
