Like them so far Cassie.

Melissa...what pattern is it? Maybe you could look up some Rav projects to see what they look like?


Our neighbors gave us a sleep number bed this week. I don't know if I'll use it though. When we bought out new bed, I thought the temperpedics were kind of hard. I hope you like it shannon.


worked on the storyteller today. It's almost a vest The only reason it's not a vest is that I ran out of balled yarn. I need to cake two more skeins. Going to do that now.


Little Einstein pattern
Can I put the kids to bed NOW? I am so tired!
Yes that would be wonderful, doesn't the sun start to go down sooner now.

Oh no Mindy it's the matchless right? I'm so sorry! I'm still in love with my ladybug, I know that Schact has beautiful products, but it sounds like it's not an issue with the wheel but that you don't like something about it. The design maybe? Is it uncomfortable to use?
I got some fantastic news today, the contractor who did the addition on my house came by and looked at the roof, which badly needs to be replaced. The thing is its only 7 years old, so it's within his warranty time frame and I get a new roof for free! That's a $10,000 relief!

Afm yarn-wise... I'm about halfway done with the HH to match the rainbow longies. Then I can finally post pics for everyone.

I'm not sure, from what I'm reading on Rav I think people are suspecting either something damaged in shipping that is throwing it off or that it's a lemon. I won't get another one to find out though, if I send it back, I'll get another tried-and-true Kromski, kwim?

I wish it was just not liking it, it doesn't work. The drive band just falls off no matter how I adjust, and to get it to work at all there's so much drag on it that it hurts my arms and legs to spin. I've been told it shouldn't be like that (which I figured, cause it's terrible) but nobody seems to know what's wrong. The dealer is having me try it in scotch just to rule out certain issues with it, so I guess that's my homework for now.

Sorry about the wheel! I'd be super frustrated to spend that much and have it be a lemon. Would the dealer replace it?

Cute! Hope the button band makes sense soon. DS1 loved our Ergo and still asks to go in. I tmried him in it recently for kicks and his feet hit at the back of my knees, lol.

Great news!


AFM: Leaving the mall now. Stopped by for a quick lunch at this awesome little Greek stand. Hope the boys go comatose in the car so I can rest and sew at home.

Re: KAL ~ Knit for FALL! Sept 9 - Sept 15

I've been having problems grafting my shoulders for some reason and thankfully after pulling them out once on both sides, I see the new skein I knit in is much more pink..I was lazy and didn't alternate for the few inches at the top in the back. The hood will cover it because I doubt I will actually wear the hood much, but I think I may pull it out anyway so it doesn't bug me.

going to to get the kids ready for bed. Mama is ready for sure.

I will pick the sweater back up on Mon. I really hoped for a vest, but I wont' rush it.

I don't like how the legs are coming along. I might need to add a few stitches.

And, my sister wants me to keep my niece. I told her no because I'm sick and in tired. I have 2 sick kids and her daughter was here most of today being loud. Jevin didn't nap. She wants to see some guy. Honestly i am sick of her and her multiple "friends."
