I spent all last week pretending to be a nurse to my stepmother, and when I at last got home to seattle, it was only to find a sick husband. Yesterday the big dog stepped on the little dog, so now I have an injured dog. Meanwhile, three of my computer’s hard drives failed at the same time, so I have a very ill computer.
Is it therefore any surprise that today I woke up sick? I thought not.
So here I sit with Ann Droid, writing another blog post by swyping. I love swyping. I especially love the fact that it recognizes the word “swyping”.
Anyway, in my last post I mentioned trying to go to a yarn store in Memphis. So, when mom’s two friends since 1943 showed up at the hospital to visit her, I slipped out and found respite at the inn of the Yarniverse.
Not only did I find yarn therapy there, but also dog therapy,as one of the ladies knitting around the table had brought her sweet golden retriever, Maybell, with her.
Yarniverse is a great shop, and I wish I lived closer to it. It is filed with wonderful samples and the owner…was it Carol?…is such a nice person. Not normally a person who knits hats, I nonetheless saw the cutest hat knit up as a sample and decided to knit it with two skeins of Malabrigo.
Here it is so far, I’ve only got ten more I-cords to go before I gather them all at the top and let the ends dangle fetchingly down over the crown.
