I am hereby nominating myself to be the Most Boring Blogger of All Time.
Add my blog to the list of Most Blah Blogs.
Here I am, about to whine again about some new misfortune that beset our little family. (The washer bit the dust. It was less than 2 years old. The official diagnosis from the friendly Sears technician was "The motor is fried".)
Someone tell me there is eventually an end to all the things that can break or go wrong in one household within a time span of 2 years. Washer, dryer, car, front porch support columns, TV, hot water heater, dehumidifier, washer again. Plus tomorrow, I have to go to the dentist for a crown, to the tune of $850.-, because I lost part of a tooth just before Christmas. They patched me up so I could go on the trip, and enjoy my mother's cookies, but tomorrow is the day of no return.
I tell you, I am sooo done with things breaking around here. Including in my mouth.
There ought to be a law.
Anyway, since I am determined not to whine; after all, our general health is under control, the kids are back in school, my sinuses have calmed down....and I had a beautiful swatch fest today, I decided to show you these awesomely colorful socks.
I brought them to Germany to work on, and managed to finish them there. My mother was complaining of very cold feet. I gave her the socks, but then stole them back for this picture, putting them on the equally awesome rug. I think that rug and those sock were made for each other.
Sister, if you read this, your socks will be knitted and on the way soon. Sometime in February.
Back to what I was saying.
I don't know how many other blogs you read, but if you're like me, probably around twenty or so. I read them, and then I think, goodness I am so lame! I don't belong to any rings; I have never had a contest; I do not tag people; I don't belong to the Sexy Knitters; I have never had a poll question, nor do I have people write to me about their favorite something or other.
I guess I am just not connected. Truly. I am such a dork, I don't know how to download all those buttons that people put in their sidebars. The one button I have is not a button, it's just a picture that doesn't go anywhere. Anytime you want to jump in an explain it to me, go ahead.
Though ravelry is going really well. Love ravelry. Remember that group I started in November, the great Stash Knit Down of 2008? The first day, there were over 300 members. Today, over 1100! It's a great community over there. If you're not in it yet, get in line for your invitation!
And about the swatch fest I had today: finally after lots and lots of knitting and figuring I have a new pattern that is almost done! Yes I still do have to do an awful lot of knitting within a very short amount of time (have to make a sleeveless shell by 1/24, if at all possible), but I feel like this project, which I CANNOT SHOW YOU OR TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT! drats! because it is going to be in a book, is finally on its way. I am over the hump with it. It didn't want to come to be, for a long while, but today, right around the time that I had to recognize that some appliances have a very short life span, this thing jelled.
I guess somewhere in this universe, there is some kind of equalizing force at work.
