I just visited my stash. I feel like a big stick of butter.

Revisiting your yarn renews your spirit and inspires you.
I'd forgotten about all that Anne...all that Koigu...all the Socks that Rock.
All I want to do is knit--24/7/52/365

I got 800 hours of sick time...I need surgery or something.

I FINALLY made an appointment with the Orthopedic Foot Specialist 7 weeks after the fall that percipitated the days of being unable to bare weight on my left side and the need to take 600mg of ibuprofen every 12 hours religiously just so I can walk--sure I feel sick to my stomach all the time, but walking is important. Anyway, my MD appointment is not until February 28th...

Maybe I'll heel (get it---heel/heal) myself in that time!????!

All I know is that my trip is in three and 1/2 months and I need to be able to ambulate appropriately. So, I'm planning on calling the ortho clinic regularly and inquiring into if anyone Friday when it supposed to snow...yeah that is the ticket.

Oh and Craig...thanks for the Cash Iroha. YUMMY. I scored 15 skeins at 30% off...gorgeous, rich marroon color. I'm designing my first sweater. So far, I'm working on a lace edging (from Nikki Epstein's Knitting on the Edge. and a slightly shaped sweater, knit in the round, with set in sleeves and a vneck (that will highlight my narrow shoulders and decollete (sp?)) . The lace pattern will repeat on the cuffs, the sleeves will be close fitting, but with a little more give in the upper arm area (I've always had issues with my arms). I'm still in swatch phase...and then I've got to do some measuring...and some number fudging...but the prospect of MY VERY OWN DESIGNED SWEATER is quite exciting.

Operation Plasma Screen is in full force. Phase One, calling the cable company regarding the HD/DVR box is complete. Phase 2, Furniture moving and acquisition commences this weekend.
Phase 3, taxes is next week, Phase 4 Purchasing could occur on or before President's Day Weekend. So, as soon as pre season baseball starts, I'll be watching it in HI DEF PLASMA SCREEN glory!

I can't tide me over, I'll go visit my stash again.

I'm envious! I want a GINORMOUS TV - like obscenely big - not sure why, but... Alas - I'll have to wait a bit longer than you, but enjoy giant baseball!

Hi Christina,

I love your blog and your Podcast. I just joined the message board on the podcast website and I wanted to make sure that you knew that it has been inundated with Spam.

That's so funny. Some of that Anne could come live in my stash.

Also seconding Gaby, the message boards are under attack. Yuckies.
