Life is pretty unexciting here. Back to the daily grind. Blech. Missing my knitting time. And desperately wanting to read more of my current book. For today, all I've got to tell you is that I spent time last night ripping NBAT, due to, surprise, surprise - gauge issues. The pattern gauge is 19 st/in and I was in the neighborhood of 23 st/in. RIP. Will cast on again with sz 9 needles, and this time I'll swatch. Lesson learned (again).
I do have one lousy little picture for you - my stash enhancement from last week. Two skeins of Regia Cotton Surf (yum), and one of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted (yum yum) which will become the cabled footies from One Skein for my One Skein Secret Pal. I'm dying to cast on with the Regia and the only thing stopping me is that I want to use bamboo needles, and all of mine are in use. Perhaps I need to buy a new set on Thursday night at the yarn store?
Oh, and it was already muggy this morning when I went walking. I'm going to try going earlier tomorrow to avoid it. All of our grass is dead. The creek at school is dried up. How many more years do I have to live in Texas?
And for your funny bit - one of my kiddos needed help on the potty today, and when I asked what was wrong, he told me he "couldn't reach between his biscuits*" to wipe. I almost died laughing.
*By biscuits does he mean buns? Perhaps he created this word because he associated it with other bread products? Who knows, but it's hysterical.
