Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

That's hilarious Fi!

Erica I know how you feel about JA. I like it for "convenience" but every time I go I'm reminded of the convenience it ISN'T.

Ends are woven in on the longies, PMed the mama to find out what kind of lanolizing she wants done. Swept the floors, in the middle of dividing fiber up now, Pixie is stirring but isn't up. I REALLY want sock knitting time today!!

yeah...I should have just gone to Hancock. It's closer to our house and I don't have to deal with lines. But JA was having a sale. Hancock takes competitor coupons wonder if they do competitor sales? Oh well can't get the time back so can't worry

I have NO idea how since I was not even PREGNANT with him yet when I bought them but he refuses to wear non mommy made. :/ I have had these around for 3 kids since none of them wore them for long and now that he fits them, he is pretty much refusing to wear them.
you've bread a "fi (mama) made only" snob, eh? How could he possibly know you didn't make them? the other kids must have told him! Must have said something like "ewee, you don't want those, some crappy knitter knit those, not mama!"

I always bought/traded for longies if they were the right price. We wear them for such a short time (few times max), it was never worth it for me to knit them.

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

Erica, I havent' been to JA's in ages. the cutting counter makes me cringe. I usually go straight in and get a number and do my shopping while waiting for my number to be called.

I didn't know you had Hancock's up there? We only have JA and then Fabric Depot in Portland really. I'm totally jealous

yep ... it's a small Hancock but it's only 2 minutes away from our house. I don't like going to Fabric Depot (traffic)....only if I'm without kids will I go there
