Friday - random thought....

Why.. why why... is eating cake for breakfast frowned upon.. ? but a muffin is perfectly acceptable...
Both are accomplished by pouring batter into a tin pan...!

Have a great weekend!

'You know your Friday is going to suck when....

you go to DD at 5:15 AM, order a coffee, drive to window, pay.. and drive off w/o coffee and don't realize it til you're more than 1/2 way to work!

Question: 'do you turn around?'

Um... pardon?

Since the beginning of September, September 7th to be exact (Labor DAY) til Oct 2nd, I have been to a doctor, ER, or specialist, 11 (ELEVEN).. times! On Oct 2nd, I've pretty much had it with medical professionals.. Nora - Please don't take offense.. I'm just plain worn out...and this is my way of venting.. ALL my kids are back at school, some still on meds.. but almost 100% healthy.. Me? I'm home sick.. I think 'stress' sickness. more than body's release that its OK, for me to now fight.

Last Friday, I boarded yet another elevator to the pediactricians office w/one of my almost 14 yr old sons wearing this.

Complete Elevator Stranger: "So what is that?"
Me: "Um, pardon?'
Stranger: "What are you wearing? What's that called?" Did someone make that FOR you? or did YOU make it?"
Me: "Um, I guess you could call it a wrap or poncho and yes. I made it, Thank you"
Stranger: "Hmph... it's nice." and the lady walks off the elevator...
Me: "Thanks??"

Son: "OH MY GOD!!! - YOUR knitting is SO embarrassing!"

So... this left me thinking.."Hey Rach - Does my wrap SUCK EGGS??"

Here's RoseRed!.. I LOVE LOVE LOVED this pattern.. and I think these WILL be the xmas gifts of choice this year!!!!

I used Sublime Angora Merino - 2 skeins for the Largest hat.
I think I have atleast 1/2 a skein left... It's a quick knit. the yarn it pretty w/a lovely halo. I've used it before.. and may have complained about the eating/inhaling/blinking it out.. but I didn't have that problem this time around... Back to the wrap from hell.. until I buy more yarn... to make
