May 25, 2007



Okay, where do you buy one of those St. Joe's things? My nearly-ex husband would have a fit if he knew I was doing something silly and superstitious like that, but what the hell.


Every party (blog)needs a pooper, that's why you have me! De-lurking again here - sorry for the absence, it's been a crazy-busy time at work and with some family issues. You're still the first blog I read every morning. :-)

All appendages are crossed for the sale of the houses! May you get just what you need and be done. You need to just be able to enjoy your lovely new home.

New cardis, Bron. Yup. And may I say what a wise choice of garment they are? :-) I was thinking about you the other day because I came to terms with my love of the cardi. They're so practical in any climate. Mine get the most use of any garment I knit or crochet.

Loved the spiderweb - I hope it turns out to be something you enjoy for the futzing you had to do. Love this new one too. Wouldn't if be a wonder if a VK pattern turned out to be flaw-free? Maybe St. Joseph could help there, too. >g<

Have a cold something for me at the end of the day to celebrate your summer freedom!


thinking good thoughts about the house sale!

peets is the best coffee. So much so that I have a couple of pounds delivered twice a month (sumatra + arabian mocha java). Yum!

That cardi looks great! I love how angular it is.


Yahoo! Got everything crossed for you - it does sound promising.

Have a happy summer!


Things get cranky around here if we run out of Peet's. Happy Summer!


"Free at last!" is how I felt about the end of school those last few years of teaching. Now we can watch that new craft room become a reality as you finally have time to get organized.
I hope the house sells soon. It just hit me that you have 3 houses right now!
The cardi lace is working up beautifully. That color has always been a favorite of mine.


Get the party started! What a summer you are going to have, time off and getting all settled in a new fabulous house!


Strange about the gardening centers! I suppose mail order is another possibility, but I haven't had much success from any live plants ordered through the mail. Although, the pathetically slow Canada Post could have something to do with that. :P

I know you respond in comments. When I ask a specific question that I want an answer to, I sometimes remember to come back. ;) (And it's my own darn fault if I don't!)

Yes! Peet's is the best. I used to love the Major Dickason's blend but their fair trade is really good too.

Crossing fingers (etc) for you! Hopefully they will be The Ones.

That cardi is cute. Is that a traveling rib? It looks like the Joan Vass ribbed shirt I wanted to knit but couldn't quite figure out the directions.


PAULA! Believe it or not, I was just thinking about you a couple of days ago, wondering where you'd gotten to. Thanks for checking in!

You know..there really should be a saint for knitters to bury in their work baskets so projects turn out well! LOL

Jess - Cyndy sent me some Arabian mocha java - I can't wait to try it tomorrow morning. :)

Thanks, "Spy" - same to you!

Linda - I don't think it'll sink in until Monday morning when we all *don't* have to get up for work! Hallelujah, school is OUT!

Jillian - Yeah, I really can't wait - it'll be a blast. :)

Andrea - I don't think it's just Canadian post either (hehe) When I've mail-ordered plants in the past it's never worked out. I'm just resigned to shopping at Lowe's. At least I'm supporting my husband's company that way! LOL

Carrie - I have no idea if it's called traveling rib. They just call it "chevron lace" or some such thing. I'll have to double-check the directions. It's just easy enough to lure you into thinking you don't have to pay attention and hard enough so that you NEED to pay attention. ::grin::


The cardi looks great - yay for CE! And for last days of school!


I was wondering what happened to Bianca's jacket and of course, I has an ulterior motive, if you finish it and like it, then I get to see what it looks like on a person and then I can decide if I want to make it! Heehee!
