I have been jinxed. I had a flat tire on my 6 week old tires. I spilt 32 oz. of tea on my kitchen floor as I was leaving for work. I had atm "issues" today, which ended with me punching the atm. I feel like someone has hexed me! If you have hexed me, please remove it. I am suffering here. You have accomplished your goal, and the bonus round is that the tire cost money I did not have. And tomorrow I get to spend the day with my brother. Oh joy, I am hoping each of us grit our teeth and put aside our usual animosity. Wish me luck.

Again No Pics

I wish I could post photos of how awesome the socks I knitted look with my Nike mary janes today. Despite all the problems and errors I am feeling fairly stoked with pride everytime I look down and see the blue and green stripes on my feet. Of course if someone even glances at me I am like, "Hey, did you see the socks I knitted?" I am sure by the end of the day my co-irkers are going to hate hearing it. Too bad!

I finally, after a year, finished my first pair of socks. I would like to jump and trumpet with pride at my success, but I will just say "yay" instead. The second sock was a different gauge from the first. The first was actually too slouchy on my foot, so the second one is smaller. And tragedy of tragedies as I was sealing up the toe I dropped two stitches. And of course they were the decrease stitches. And did I mention how much I hated the cotton blend yarn I picked out for the socks. Yikes, it was a mess. But D for done and onward to better socks and of course my holiday knitting.

My beloved Penelope (what I call my computer) is so broken. I keep getting multiply error messages followed by the blue screen of death. It sucks. I keep trying to remove the bugs that are causing the problem, but tenaciously I can't remove the smut. Again it sucks. I am going to hand over my dear Penelope to a friend who may be able to clean her up and save her hard drive. In the meantime, I wonder what I did before the Internet. I think of things I want to block about, like the sock I will finish knitting tonight. Or the recent Bread Company Tour I did of the St Louis area. But alas, I am at work (LIBRARY HELL). Again I say it sucks.

My computer is sick, it keeps giving me the blue screen of death. In other words I am having technical difficulties and can only post at work. Not the best scenario. Be patient situation will improve soon.
