January 29, 2007



Waking up and not having you blog, makes me worry-just so you know, I depend on your post every morning. Now that that's out of the way-

Love the button!

Hooray for saving the Licorice Whip!

Oh that teacher sounds obnoxious and like a control freak-blech!

No more baby, eh?

Yes, they can't give the boa and fun fur away, can they?


Oooooo, I've got to find that book on knitting dishcloths. My MIL got me some and now I can't go back to regular. Very nice Licorice Whip.
I need to have some finished projects to show off, they are just all in progress! Talk to you soon.


I like the button for the purse. Looks great.

Will that teacher ever give up?


I love that button on that bag! woo!

As for that teacher -- WTF?! I don't understand her AT ALL. Maybe she is part of the anti-lime-green coalition. :)

Congrats on fixing your licorice whip! It's nice to reclaim a sweater! :) Plus, the color of yours is gorgeous!


Hooray for Grape Whip. I find mine is very warm for a cotton garment too!

What amazes me is that women doesn't actually understand how astonishingly rude she IS being. What a putz. I bet she has some kind of color blindness and doesn't know it, because that color looks wonderful on you. You should make her a lime green dishcloth!


Crazy teacher lady! Perhaps she had a scarring incident involving limes when she was little. ;)

That's a rather silver looking tooth there! I'm guessing you spent way more than $5 on it at one point.

Hmmm... still thinking of the SWS purse motifs... perhaps a warm toque? How big are the motifs, and how many were you getting per ball? (Perhaps I can calculate that from your previous posts... wandering off... )


Good job on the fix! I bet you look great in your lime green sweaters. That teacher is one of those people that don't know when to shut up, rude indeed!


Meandering back... 3 and a smidge skeins, 26 triangles plus straps, etc... looks like 8 or 9 triangles per skein. Judging from other things in the photos, I'm guessing the triangles are around 2 to 2.5 inches along each side? Maybe it's more like 3 inches...

...wandering off again...


You know, if that teacher is so rude to an adult, just think how she treats her students.!


I'm so happy that Grape Whip is turned into a success! It looks great and you look happier wearing it. The lady at school is a nitwit. I think I would seriously have to think long and hard before trying not to pop her. The next time she says something about the color you chose to wear or knit with, tell her that her comments are unappreciated and you'll wear whatever you d@*n well please! I hate people like that. So rude!!

I would be sorely tempted to wear lime green exclusively for several weeks. I am floored by this woman's nerve!


That is great you were able to fix the Grape Whip to your liking.

I bought some of that pinkish colored cotton from Tuesday Mornings a few months ago. That is pretty cool yours has some too. There was only enough of it at mine for me to purchase 6 skeins. There is a pattern on mine for a child's hoody and I was thinking that is what I would make with mine.


That is pretty cool! *stalking ur blog*

Hey, you've been TAGGED, too!!


Licorice Whip looks terrific. Great colour. I'm so glad you managed to rescue it...after all that work, it would be a shame not to be able to wear it. I love purple and lime green together. Now that's scary! LOL.


Congratz on saving your licorice whip Bron.

I think next time that weasel woman says something to downgrade one of your green sweaters you should just add.."and" to make her say something else "and" "and". When she queries why you are saying "and" just say you're waiting for her to say something nice, or don't say anything at all. She lacks tact and I feel sorry for her students who may and probably are being hurt by her comments.

As far as making her a dishcloth or anything, I wouldn't. She'll most likely make some rude comment about it and you'll regret taking the time.


Maybe next time you should say something to her about having read that people on the Autistic spectrum have a problem with being tactful too (and since I've got Asperger's I can say that!).

I can't believe he's lost his last baby tooth already, I didn't lose mine until I was in high school, and only then because they finally pulled the last few! Course, I always was the odd one... ;-)


Anne - That's definitely her excuse: "I've been teaching these kids so long that their behavior has rubbed off on me!" Sheesh. I really SHOULD ask if perhaps she has undiagnosed issues herself!

Yeah - We had to have some of the kid's baby teeth pulled too. I'm with you - I'm really surprised it's all over so quickly!

Jan - Don't worry, the dishcloths will be solely for my use and for gifts to my friends....and she'll never fall into that category!

Yes, you & Susan are correct: She's really awful to her students too. There's always yelling in her classroom from the kids AND her. To be fair, I doubt anyone could teach that group without raising their voice, but she is definitely rough around the edges.

Terri - Purple & lime green is a GREAT color combo. In fact, a lime green jacket with purple trim a la' Chanel would be lovely!

Wendy - I would've loved it if they'd had more in this color. But most of the yarn had really been picked over & abused. Dang it!

Lisa - You & me both! I can't believe she can't let it go! As it is, I have 3 lime green items of clothing - a tunic and my two sweaters. You're right, I should just alternate them for a couple of weeks! LOL

Wanda - I really, truly am going to say something if she ever starts in again. Enough is enough and I can only be "nice" for so long! Then I get bitchy. ::Grin::

Cathy - I like to think I look good in lime green. :) It's a good thing I don't listen to idiots like that teacher! LOL

LOL Jillian. A "putz." You've got it in one.

Jess - I think she had an unfortunate incident with limes sometime in her childhood....hehehe

Thanks, Vera - I used a horn button on the big bag I made over a year ago & could resist it for this one too. :)

Mary-Kay - I really liked this particular book because the dishcloths have lots of texture to them. They should be interesting to knit!

Deneen - Didn't mean to worry anyone...I just figure I should give people a break once in awhile! :)

And yes - how far fun fur has fallen, eh? Close-out priced at Tuesday Morning! LOL

Carrie K

She probably hears it so much that she finds it normal, but still. I'd be very tempted to tell her off, as that seems to be about the only way of getting through to her.
