it's here!

here it is! cheaper than therapy. wow. to hold this in my hands, and see my words, printed, is unbelievable. i get a little breathless when i think about it. and yes, i'm already half way through it. i'm in awe. i'm in such good company! it's unbelievable.

Hmmm. i was gonna show you more, (yes, erin, more yarn porn!) but blogger is being odd, and won't let me load any more pics. fooey.

ok, on with the day.

steph is not enthused about the book. of course, she was sick all day too. sigh. that kid refuses to go to the doctor now, because my insurance won't cover it, but there's no way she'll make it anywhere if she's sick all the time.

work was a bummer, i ended up in the mail room all day, because they let too many mail core (people who work the mail room all the time) people take PreVTO, and we ended up on the phones all day. what is the point of putting me in the mail room, where it's harder to hear, and on the side of the room where it's a lot more cramped, and then put me on the phone? LOGIC, people! USE IT! (oh wait, i'm talking to corporate types, never mind). so my hands are a bit tender, particularly with the weather shift. it was 97 yesterday, and it was 75 today. and no storms. i'm not sure, but i think we are the only ones who didnt' ahve some action.

speaking of storms, i feel so bad for all of those in texas and louisiana. here we go again. if you haven't given yet, please do so. they're going to need all the help they can get down there.

i have actually been working on things. i have done 15 6" squares for AC4C for this month's project (they're goign to canada eventually, so i'll send some money for shipping too, blankets can't be cheap to ship). i also got some done on steph's turtle. i WAS going to show you. oh well.

You might be a redneck if you inherited a toilet plunger.

. . . your college graduation ceremony includes parallel parking an eighteen-wheeler.

Pattern of the Day: Slubby Nubby Vest. this is based entirely on the yarn, some Dancing Leaf FArm's Slubby Nubby Wool Yarn. it's done on size 15's. not a non-pattern, since there is a small modicum of shaping to be done, but BORING! not my cuppa, for sure.

Dotty Cap or Basket. this is done domino style, and looks cute. i may try to adapt it for charity purposes.

WOOOHOOOO!!! I can't wait to see the book! I may just have to try to pick up a copy while I'm on vacation so I can have you autograph it when I get back! =)

Isn't this weather insane? Oh well, guess that's what you've got to expect in Nebraska.

I will miss you next week - I'll try to take lots of good pictures and keep my blog as updated as I ever do. I'll make sure to fondle plenty of yarn for you!

And what's with not telling me, the maker of the strangest hats, that there was a raw-chicken viking-hat along going on, huh?
