Just a few quick notes before I hop off to work:
My grandparents in Maui are just fine; the earthquake just broke a glass bottle and knocked a few things over. One of their friends lost 70 feet of yard when it fell into the ocean, but no one was hurt.
Boy's grandmother is in the ICU right now. Without going into it at all, she seems to be stabilizing, but still not quite herself. If you have any spare happy thoughts, please send them her way?
Margaret Radcliffe commented on my blog. Margaret Radcliffe! My twisted knitting question was answered in the book, I was just looking in the wrong section. I am working my Kid Classic OSW in "real" knit and purl stitches, and her non-standard knitting section really helped me figure out the trick to the whole thing: the yarn goes counterclockwise. Who knew? (Please don't everyone raise their needles at once).
I am such a Rowan junkie. I keep groping the Kid Classic yarn as I'm knitting; it makes me feel all tingly!
I'm bidding for a knitting kit on eBay and should know whether I get it or not by the time I get home from work. I am terribly excited and may just hold onto that "trading" batt I ordered from Spritely Goods with the Soak I've been coveting.
I'm on my seventh straight day of work, only today and tomorrow to go... wish me luck!
