I got tons of good advice sent my way after my desperate (embarrassing) plea for help yesterday afternoon. I just love my blog buddies! Special thanks to Chris, who helped me sort out how to add links without hotlinking. You’re awesome girlfriend!
This really is some community we’ve created, huh? People we may never meet face to face have become a part of our lives; we share events, crisis, good news and bad, and I don’t know about you guys, but I count you among my friends. I was reminded again about the impact of this online neighborhood last night while visiting Wendy’s blog. She has just lost her Grandmother, and the flood of encouraging messages on her comment page was outstanding, the support, love and hugs were just wonderful. I’m not sure how many of those who left messages are “physically” acquainted with Miss Wendy, but she sure has a group of cyberfriends to help ‘bear her up.’ I think that’s really something.
My day started off with an early phone call, our poor little dude, Stephen, was sick, and I was needed to keep him company while Eva ran to work and cancelled her appointments. We got through the hour or so watching Arthur on PBS, and making gatorade (which I really played up, calling it ‘special’ juice). When Mom got back, she and I had a bite of breakfast, and little guy decided to go back to bed. Hopefully he will be back to his own sweet self soon.
I’ve been plugging along on the red cardi, and I think I see a potential problem in the near future. Since I’m not using the yarn recommended in the pattern, (what fun would that be, right??) I’m not quite sure what will happen when I get to the armholes and sleeves. Should I knit them according to the “numbers” I’ve been using, or will I need to do some serious tweeking? I’m hoping it will all go smooth, since my skill at adapting patterns is somewhat scary.
Since the only other thing going on in my world today is laundry, I think I’ll sign off. Have a great Tuesday.
