If you aren't ready to start the race today, I will just work on swap stuff today.

I got to two and there they sit--- the cuteness done wore off and even before I weaved the ends.

Hopefully the next longies/capris/shorties (whichever I make) will fit better and my short rows won't be so gnarly.
just keep knitting, you get better really fast!

I have the best cake like super sweet banana bread if you need one. I love it, it is an old one from some magazine that my roommate in college had. We love it.

What?!?! We have a kal mama that makes Waldorf dolls?!?!

We'll have to see if Karen makes them...or you can give me a link to the blank ones and I can buy them, that would be the way I would "make" them.

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

So mad at Judah this morning...the boy hasn't been fond of wool since birth and he's also apparently too good for Rios as well. So much for his green romper. Looks like a listing on Spots kind of day...I still have to sell his barely worn newbie diapes and wool too. *sigh*

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

I was talking about KarYn (florida) since she suggested a waldorf

well benj said emily already has enough babies so she doesn't need another well I think I'm getting the bitty baby anyways. $25 is a great deal (especially if they are reg $50...which I would never buy at that price).

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

Kids got up way too early and our house is only 60 degrees this morning. I'm actually tempted to make myself a cup of coffee and deal with the reaction.
