There's a problem with Blogger to upload pics.. so you can check out the progress of where it will stand probably til after Xmas at Flickr...
Going to back and focus on the MQW.... I had a hissy fit w/ it this weekend.. I feel as if I bit off more than I can chew... Problem is... I can't walk away from what I spent on the yarn.. and it's not the type of yarn, that I would use for anything else...

As I'm standing at the kitchen sink, I peek at Dakota (100lb golden retreiver) as he is blocking the path to the sliding glass doors... of which Nicky is trying to get in... I yell at Dakota to knock it off... Nicky is an indoor cat, but he likes to just go and sit on the deck and/or hop down to the pool area and roll around on the concrete.. I don't ask.. I just acccept...
Anyhow, I hear hear the vertical blinds slamming around.. and yell at Dakota again... I then out of the corner of my eye, see Nicky, run under the kitchen table and into the dining room with "SOMETHING really big"??? With Dakota bounding right behind him!...Let's see if I can get this in the correct order of events...
I scream, then drop the VERY LARGE heavy pan in the sink(water is still running)... somewhat skittishly follow Nick, to see what he has...C is running around "It's a RAT! It's a RAT!" I start yelling at the damn cat which what does he do??? Nick drops the thing and the damn thing is now LOOSE!!!!! Now, it's dark in my dining room.. and I am trying to figure out what this thing is from AFAR... Because, I don't dare step into the dining room, to turn on the light.. HELL NO! That's a wild animal in there... Nick chases it to the corner.. and under the chair.... I go screaming up the stair to wake my husband(well.. he really didn't need waking .. what ... with all the yelling coming from downstairs).. so I start yelling at him....b/c "RABIES... OMG!!! RABIES!"... So. hubby comes downstairs, and in the mean time... Nicky gets the animal again.. and I yell, dammit if that cat didn't let him go again... which then the BIG VARMINT, ran across into the living room.. which hubby then slowed him down w/ a laundry basket...(note to self - who the hell left an empty laundry basket in my living room?) .. which the critter apparently can morph itself, b/c it then squeezed through the handle and ran into another corner.. Fortunately, the animal is NOT smart.. and wherein the light..able to see that the hell it was... a lil bunny.. which now lives happily back in the woods... I have to go change my pants now...

til I looked here...
Mom: "C, were you outside with only your socks on?"
C: "No, Mommy."
Mom: "hmmm, you sure?"
C: "Yes, Mommy, you tell me to always wear my sneakers when I go outside"..
Mom: "ah-huh, so how is it that your socks are so dirty?"
C: "Um... maybe my sneakers are dirty or maybe from walking in the garage? "
Mom: "or maybe from walking out back to the basketball court and playing ball in your socks?"

Got into work. LATE... walk into cafeteria to cook your oatmeal in a paper cup. That you have to measure the water with such accuracy, one milliliter off, and there'll be a Kashi lava flowing all over the inside of the appliance, which is nothing new.. b/c the slobs on this floor never clean up after themselves anyhow... I have no desire to visit their own homes.. as it would most likely cause night terrors...
In any event, I take my chance with the microwave, with the thinking, I'm cooking this stuff for 4 minutes.. so any organisms left behind by them, surely would have died... and while waiting I notice some dumbass, ahem, a lovely absent-minded co-worker left the freezer door open... "oh dear"...when I try to close it, it won't.. WHY?
this is actually an improvement after I took a knife to some of the ice.. There's actually frozen dinners COMPLETELY encased in ice under that smart ones dinner!...I gave up...I don't use this fridge anyhow...

WTH is wrong with me... ???? I just spent some $120+ on yarn for the damn thing..and all I can do is look at the pretty colors...? NOT !!! I'm ready to SCREAM! and OH.. my yarn (Plymouth Outback in Taupe) that I can go back to eating came in.. YAY!? So I can pick that up tomorrow and finish up the 3D scarf...
It's 8:42 PM.. I'm going to bed, b/c if one more person asks me to do one more task, I will surely go postal...

Got a question for anyone who's looking... Is it at all possible to 'felt' in a top loading HE washing machine...? It's not front loading..so I can open the top and check status... I can probably put something in there too to help with agitation like oh... 'a shoe or two, three, four' ? Any suggestions? I 've seen where you can felt manually,.. w/ a tub of really hot water and a plunger ( never used - :)... but I'd like to avoid that if possible.

So, to break up the monotony of st st... 82 inches of st st..for me is BOOORRRRIIIINNNNGGGG... I also knit up one of the 16 flowers...
Yesterday, I finally got to the correct length, and have begun the fringe.. It's a bit odd-looking.. like little baby-fingers.. but after felting, I'm sure it'll look kinda cool :)...
Sorry for the blurry pics.. but the yarn is blurry too!.. well.. very lofty... (a nice way of stating.. "FOR THE LOVE of (insert Deity preference here)
