This is a sweater I'm calling "NotPink" since people are always harassing me about knitting, buying or thinking about pink yarn. This, my friends is magenta. Tosh Dk in Magenta, to be precise. The design starts at one cuff and I ballooned out the sleeve, separated them, cast on to make it reach my waist, knitted across the front, then cast on the same number for the back, knitted it, then joined them back up to knit down the other sleeve. Don't Casapinka's gates photograph well? It was Husband's idea - we'll have to use them again when the current snow melts.
This morning, as usual started out with me comatose. I'm just not a morning person. Being an only child, though, I'm sometimes jolted awake by humorous sibling rivalry situations. This morning, heard one room away. "MOMEEEEEEEEE, she kicked me in my butt while I was putting on my shirt so I threw my shoe at her and she locked it in her safe and now she can't get it ouuuuuuuut! I really love motherhood. As they say, you can't make this stuff up.
Maybe it's the only child in me that finds these things so darned funny. How do you assert any authority by ordering your 9 year old to "Get his shoe out of your safe!" Then there's the predictable loss of the safe combination etc. I finally deposited them neatly at school and made it to the town pool for a swim. It's pouring rain here at Casapinka but at least I have four more blissful hours until Ren and Stimpy get home for another round. I'll tell you the head injury story tomorrow. Wouldn't want to overwhelm ye!
