There is a black friday itouch posting in about a half hour on amazon, I'm going to see what kind of sale they do for it. I am debating on another vs the ipad mini. Decisions, decisions. The kids probably dont' care either way but mama wants to play w/the ipad
Text me about the sale please?

Re: THANKSGIVING! KAL ~ Nov 18-24

Yeah when I turned 15 I worked in a grocery in Missouri, and they had similar tax. They could tax a rotisserie but not bread from the regular bread aisle, but bakery bread and donuts WOULD get taxed, and anything that was taxable wasn't food stamp eligible, so the training for that at the time was kind of overwhelming. We've just gotten used to being spoiled here. The fact that we can go to Vancouver and just flash our ID and get away with not paying taxes is very weird too, other states don't cater to residents laws across state lines.

Usually it's a put them on holder and pick up later for attaching things with a new yarn like sleeves or collar after the body is done. On mittens the technique is used for thumbs while the hand is worked. I usually put on a crochet hook and pull the scrap yarn through the stitches.

You ladies are too quick I went back and edited my post but you caught the original.
The pattern originally didn't mention anything about what to do with the stitches once they were on the waste yarn (which is I guess what was confusing). ... after getting a revised copy of the pattern, now it all makes sense. Guess this is the reason they get testers, huh?

Re: THANKSGIVING! KAL ~ Nov 18-24

Uggh, my mom makes me annoyed. We asked months ago about getting the matching bed that we have from there already to use as the boy's bunk beds and it was no big deal because they wanted to get a bed out of the house. So I talked to her about coming to get it next weekend and now she sounds like we can't have it. What a pain.

And with that I must go start the laundry folding party so it gets done tonight.

Re: THANKSGIVING! KAL ~ Nov 18-24

arggg...Michaels didn't have a 24" size 5 needle. but had a 29"...so do I go with the 29", use the 16" or buy a 24" via amazon?

the chest circ for the abernathy is 28.5"...so 29" probably won't work
