Jeanne was getting worried about me hiding under my rock again! (It's so nice to be missed by my knitting buddies!) Sometimes the days just go by quicker than I can get my fingers to knit and I'm pretty boring without anything to show! (Next Installment on the Mystery KAL is Nov 6th!) On the excitement scale of life, I'm on the laid-back end, resting nicely in the "idle" position. Sigh.
I'm having my usual pre-hormonal times. All of sudden my hands won't work as well, my mind goes kind of devoid of all organization, and frankly I'm not sure I even know what day it is! It'd be kind of sad if it wasn't so funny!! I guess we all have those kinds of days! ???
Funny Mishap #1: here's one of my knitting bags that just happened to be sitting on the floor by the bed AND the slightly cluttered nightstand.
Well, I had one of those premonitions: - "oh no, that's gonna spill" - a major clarity moment right before it happened. And yes, half a cup of Diet Cherry Pepsi spilled right into the bag. Right on top of my two Mystery Berets in progress and on some other yarn I had in there. (This pic is the bag sitting by the window the day after the calamity.) As soon as it happened (in s -l- o- w motion) I immediately dumped everything out on the CARPET (yes, YARN is more important) and grabbed several towels to sop up the Pepsi. Thank goodness it didn't have time to sink in more. My yarn doesn't feel sticky or anything, but I can't wait to WASH it when I'm done knitting it up. Just to feel better about things and all.
Mishap #2: Well, not really a mishap, just more brain crushing tech stuff that TOOK ALL DAY so I couldn't knit even if I wanted to! - I had to install the new router SOMEONE bought (that we really didn't NEED but HE wanted installed because his X-Box online games were glitching), and it caused me so much frustration that I couldn't even look at him without feeling like I wanted to slap him upside the head. It's not hard to set these things up, but now my wireless printer is messed up -I've tried everything possible to fix it- BELIEVE ME! I can still use it as a "regular" printer on my desktop but having the ease of using it from the laptop was heaven. I'm gonna miss that.
Have you ever banged something on the table (any hard surface will do) because you JUST-KNOW-IT-SHOULD-WORK-AND-IT-WON'T?? It still didn't. He seriouly owes me some yarn for this....
See Jeanne!!?? Sometimes it's a good thing I'm MIA! LOL!!!
