Aimee, sometimes you let so many of the little things go that just one more comes along and it's the last one.


I need more coffee. I only made enough for our two cups.

So here's where I snapped last night: after a week of solo parenting, my DH called me from the bottom of the slopes yesterday where he was sitting in the sun, drinking a beer and waiting for his cheese plate. Here I was, battling naps and not getting to eat much at dinner b/c it's Jessica's clingy time. And when I told him about a challenge, he joked about how I wanted to have two kids. I jumped the Grand Canyon of conclusions, took it to mean that he was saying I couldn't even handle one, and broke down. Poor guy. Yup, snapped at him, which I hardly ever do.

I know I'm going to feel so silly once this is done.
It's hard to visualize the first few times, really. As others have said, it's a lot easier (for me at least) to close the gusset first and then you can just pick up stitches all the way across the edge of the gusset and have no gaps.

So, I'm cooking breakfast for the boys and he comes in and makes some snarky remark about me making a mess of "his clean kitchen"

I could not help myself. I snarked back. I said "I'm supposed to starve our kids because you picked up a sponge?"

Why do I rise to the bait? Why don't I just ignore it when he says stuff like that?

It's hard to be a single mom! You get no break at all. I hope he figures that out when you go out tomorrow for the day! Just ask him if he had fun when you get home. And ask why the house is a mess.

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

Hi everyone!!

Well I'm knitting a Knox hood to go with the WT longies as a gift for my friend. But I'm having trouble visualizing how this hat goes together! I also had to modify the # of stitches as I am using a bulky yarn and the pattern calls for 6spi on 5's. Well I'm doing probably 3spi on 7's so I have 50sts instead of the 88 (sizing up for 1+ year). I really hope this doesn't come out wonky as i have to change all of the math.

But when I c/o where am I starting? It's confusing the heck out of me. I think it's at the bottom of the neck?

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

I am such a child. Take a look at the Spots yarn page and scroll down to the listing for Cotton Chenille - huge lot. http://hyenacart.com/Spots_corner/in...&submit=Search

Does that picture remind you of anything? Maybe b/c I've been staring at gussets all morning, or b/c I have a dirty mind, but the combo of the yarns and the word huge has me

Dev. You're silly!


I have 3 longies coming from Cheryl... RSK snowgirl & cupcake... and her Choclate Rainbow set.

It'll be a good fluffler day!
