Whelp.... so much for my sidekick abilities. The Colts won. Congratulations to Peyton Manning, congratulations to his coach and his team. Congratulations to the team owner (as if he has anything to do with them winning) and all that. And I'm sure the boy in Katie's math class will come up with a new lifetime wish. Fourteen is a sadly early age to have your greatest dream/wish come true. Aim higher, hon. But be careful what you wish for.... we all know what happened to Hurley when he won the Lottery! heh
LOST will be starting up again on Wednesday. This is a much bigger event to me than the Super Bowl and it is only one fourth as LONG. I swear I will probably CRY when this episode is over on Wednesday night because I don't have any more LOST for another WEEK. I just finished watching the last disk of the first season. Whew! I was on the edge of my seat for all six disks. I'm telling you.... it was HARD TO TURN THE TV OFF when it was getting late at night. At some point during disk four or five at the end of one show Pregnant CLAIRE popped out of the woods and then the show was over... and my husband jumped off the couch, turned off the TV and said, "Time for bed!" GAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!! ::calm::calm::calm:: I am looking forward to Wednesday night with great anticipation. And I want NO INTERRUPTIONS. Honey, do you think we can get TIVO by then? If not, I might have to rent a hotel room for an hour. *smooch*
So we have some knitting foes! Yes, I feel the need to spell it out. Because people will be wanting to correct my grammar if I don't. Really. When you have a knitted Finished Object you refer to it as a FO. But do people say that in their mind as FOE or as EFF OH ??
I say FOE. Gramatically that is .... "I have a FOE to show."
Some say EFF OH. Gramatically that is "I have an EFF OH to show."
Now that we're on the same page... and you know that I say FOE.... here we have it.
Besotted. In the category of "Norma said if it's not in the mail, don't send it now - save it for next year."
Next up... a long overdue FOE.... Katie Basic Sweater from LB Homespun - the yarn I will never use again unless I'm being tortured on a deserted island in a dimly lit underground bunker and the only way to get home is to knit with this yarn. BLEH. They'd probably require that I also count rows which is pretty much impossible even with good light. Goodbye dear sweater, I am so glad to be FINISHED WITH YOU. And Katie loves it. But she doesn't like how it flares out a bit in the back. I told her "It's not supposed to be a fitted sweater, dear." I was on Sleeve Island for EVER with this sweater but I have something new in the wings that I'm just dying to work on so this one had to get finished first
cause I'm just that kind of person. I have very little self control when it comes to finishing stuff and I was feeling AWFUL that I hadn't gotten this done for Katie sooner. It was finished last night at midnight and she wore it to school today - thus, poorly lit photos.
More randomish stuff:
- I really want to make photo albums for my FOEs.
- The Kansas Knit Bloggers webring is READY! YAY!! I need to make a seperate post for this but it's not happening today. I'm still working on links for the sidebar on the home page but the ringsurf joining page is ready. The webring is intended for people that actually do live in Kansas or who travel here often and might talk about Kansas yarn shops or something on their blog. The purpose is to help bring together Kansas knitters as a regional community. Hopefully anyone with an interest in Kansas or who would like to know about yarn shops and fiber farms in Kansas will find our blogring full of helpful information and friendly people. But really.... current or future residence in the state of Kansas is pretty much necessary, don't you think? I'm not a born leader... I'm too wishy washy sometimes... so maybe I'm a terrible person to host the ring! But I'll try - I'll really TRY to put my foot down about some sensible guidelines about participation in the ring. With a smile too. :)
Everybody have a great week! Knit! Stay toasty warm! Enjoy the snow if you have some! Take down your Christmas tree if you haven't already! :)
