Oh my, it looks like Typepad has put in some new features. Like I can change font color with a
mouse click. Or I can do
strikethrus I mean strikethroughs with ease.
Well, that was fun. Now on to the good stuff.
MY SECRET NO LONGER PAL IS A SWEETHEART!
Hurray for Holly. Look what she sent. Amy Singer's new book. And a fabulous little gadget bag filled with useful knitter gadgets. And coffee and a biscotti. And little cherry candies. I feel pampered to bits. Thank you, sweet girl.
ANTARCTICA SWEATER NEARS COMPLETION
I've got two more rows to rib on the neck, and I'm done. Weave in a few ends. Block. Package. Mail. I cornered a cashier at the bookstore tonight, who was about Matt's height and weight and convinced him to try it on. It fits perfectly. It looks fabulous. I'm in love with this sweater, and I'm wishing it were mine. But it's not. So to lessen the pangs of giving it up, I went to Threadbear yesterday.
LORD OF THE YARNS
Gollums: Preciousss, you knows you wants it.
Sharo: No! I will be strong. I can resist. I have my magic ring. You can't make me buy this wonderful alpaca.
Gollums: Yesss, you wants it. You should have it.
Sharo: No. No. I won't buy it. See, here's my magic ring. It will protect me. It's right here. No, other pocket. No. Where's my ring? Where's my magic ring?
Gollums: You will buys it. You will. It's precioussss. You wants it.
Sharo: My ring! Where is my ring? Gandalf, help me! Aragorn, help me! I've lost the ring. I've bought 10 skeins of alpaca. I'm powerless under its spell. Help! Help!
I couldn't help it. I have to have something made of this wonderful yarn for myself. I have to. It's okay. Margene told me to. Here's what she said: "You're worth it...just do it!" So I did. I think Margene is really Gollums.
