Mushy Mushy... Happy CHinese New Year!Hey all - it's been a few days since I've been able to blog/chat/email or knit...been a crrrrraaaaazy week and will only get crazier til the end of the month... Right now I am eating a cup of melted homemade ice cream, but it is so darn good that I don't care if it's melted... it's called Sweet Cream mixed with chopped almods and pineapple chunks, from the Cold Stone Creamery in Landover, MD - made fresh daily, but this gi-normus cup of ice cream cost me almost six bucks so you better beeeeleeve I'm going to finish it - and lick the cup! hahahaha
Let me tell you, Jaimi from Plays With Yarn ROCKS! I transacted some Kureyon from her and she was gracious, prompt and speedy with my order... fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you Jaimi you are an angel :)
Been playing with my new Kureyon. Actually, I haven't taken it out of the bag yet, because it's just too pretty, but it's #88 - gold, hunter, brown, magenta, lime & purple... beautiful. I LOVE Noro yarns, esp. Kureyon. If I successfully construct my first Kyoto without minimal death & destruction, then I'll be making another in Kureyon... I visualize Booga Bags, armwarmers, mittens, hats...*sigh*
Random rant: why do smokers who drive on the highways toss their ciggy butts out the window so that they hit my car? Sheesh, hello, the world is NOT your personal ashtray, thank you! Or how about people who are on public assistance (food stamps, welfare, the likes) but smoke? Or come knocking on your door as soon as they see you come home from work to ask for bread, milk, orange juice, cereal, bananas whatever to feed their crying toddler b/c the weekly welfare check is still 2 days away from arriving in the mail, but they seem to find the $ to buy cigarettes -- yet there's a crying baby on your doorstep and you don't have the heart to say no to a hungry little one... It's pissing me off today.
Okay back to my Kureyon. I think I will make a sample skinny scarf out of some of my new yarn, just to see... For anyone who is in PG or Anne Arundel County (Maryland) Miss Kelly (keebert) from MDKnittingCats has started a local Meetup.com group for us, trying to develop it into a regular sNb so please please please take a peek and join in!
okey doke --- gotta change out of the work duds and find my fuzzy slippers. I have a date with Kureyon and some new DPNs -- be back later....
PS --- "mushy mushy" is a sort of slang salutation that is used in Japan to answer the telephone instead of "hello". I learned that today from one of my patients who is Japanese and was traveling on business *chuckle*
