My good friend Sperb published a list of famous quotations from his mother which included the above. I can relate.
I am about to be sucked into the vortex of the Knitting Olympics. My children will remember this.
Son of a mother fucking bitch. (while knitting)
NOTE TO ALL KNITTERS: THIS. IS. WHY. WE. SWATCH.
Plan B: Nancie Wiseman's diagonal knit coat from Knitted Sweaters for Every Season, page 80. Still a challenge, but AL is right. Cables are psychotic for this event.
I love this yarn. It's got some yak blended with the wool. So soft. Hand washes beautifully.
Insanity level: (still) extremely high.
Seriously, Akabini, you know what my life is like. And AL, you have had a child. I have THREE, ages 7, 3, and 23 months. And a husband. WHAT a husband. Yi.
I am toast.
Yeah, I'll join Team Wales, too. Anything where I get to be in the same club with Akabini AND Franklin. Omigod.
Bye. Gotta swatch.
