Shannon, that is exactly what has been confusing me. But just taking the stitch holders out and putting scrap yarn in helped. And now I think I'll close the gusset and make it easier. (or try, never done kitchener)

So I absolutely lost it this morning. My DH never looked at his flight info and assumed he was on the same flight as his buddies b/c they were in sync from Atlanta on the way there. So he missed his flight this morning and it's not like Kalispel, MT is a hot airport. At first they weren't going to have him home until Tuesday. Now it looks like he's coming on a red eye and in tomorrow morning. I'm beyond upset. My DH is the smartest man I know, genius, but this is the kind of stuff he spaces on. So tomorrow I will pretty much be taking care of an underslept man AND a dog AND a baby.

Bye. I'm going shopping.
I'm sorry.

Hi all! I've been MIA for a couple of days, down with the flu. DH's cold wasn't a cold and it hit me 10 times harder than it did him and now T has it too. Ugh. Not sure how much I'll be on today or tomorrow, don't post anything to amazing w/o me, ok?? LOL (as if)

Re: Just Can't Get Enough --of Wool -- Saturday

Well, I am taking a break from sterilizing everything. The Spot Bot sounds great, but I'm not sure that it could handle this mess. I have a Bissell carpet cleaner, but I have to keep taking it apart and cleaning everything so I don't feel like I am just spreading the mess around. *sigh*

I probably won't get much knitting done unless I can do some after the kids are in bed tonight. I'll try to get some pics of the Pan tomorrow if I get past the waistband. It really is amazingly beautiful.

I have been trying to decide if I want to try my hand at spinning and/or dyeing. I need to do some research on getting started. I know my LYS doesn't offer any of those classes so I am going to have to find something else. Anyone know of some good resources in the Dallas, TX area?

Re: Just Can't Get Enough --of Wool -- Saturday

Good morning! I clearly need some more coffee because I somehow opened the FTLOC thread and was like, geez I really have been out of the loop too long because I don't recognize anyone anymore! LOL.

I'm going to see how much I can catch up but it's just me and the two kids are raring to go...

As for knitting I gave up and frogged the Juliette soaker because it was too big for Annie and now I'm starting the Freckle soaker which I am liking much better! I don't know WHY but the Juliette pattern really annoyed me.

PS, I had a really funny dream last night that i just remembered, that I was going to knit some linen stitch with handspun yarn. Now that really is a dream.
