I've done something horrible to the HTML code on the template of this lovely blog, so I decided to scrap the old template and start over. It's spring!!! Time for a change!!! I kind of like the black background, but I may play around with it some more and see what I come up with. I will be adding back all my links and such in the next few days. So "pardon my dust" as they say!
In the meantime... Here's a little Project Spectrum fun from the theatre. With many thanks to the cast for their participation! They all thought I was a little crazy. "What is this for?" I didn't even try to explain. I just said it was for a red and pink crafty project kind of thing.
In knitting news...
I started the hippopotomoose sock. I have no pictures to share because I deliberately left it at the theatre so that I might get to bed at a decent hour tonight. It's going fine so far. I've done the cuff and about 5 rows of the chart. I've only had a few minor mishaps that were easily repaired. I really like the cuff on this. Its a P1, K1 TBL pattern. I may use this again in the future.
I've started thinking about knitting something other than socks. (The shock may be overwhelming for you, but I beg you to soldier on!) It's just that the weather is getting warmer and I don't really wear socks much in the summer. I'm thinking a little shrug or tank or something summery might be a nice project. I've enjoyed working on socks because they are small enough that I don't start having too much knitting ADD.
I saw this on Craftster today, and I kinda like it. It even has...CROCHET.. on it!! Anyone have any good suggestions for cute/easy/interesting/summery patterns?
A few of you have been asking about the status of my dental health. First of all - thank you sooo much for your concern. It's so sweet of you all!
The other night, the broken piece of tooth finally fell out. Amazingly, I am in no pain. I can even chew on that side of my mouth again, even though I now have a big hole in my tooth. The only thing that hurts is that the edge of the broken tooth is really sharp and it's hurting my tongue.
No, I have not been back to the dental school yet. I admit - the fact that it really doesn't hurt is not making me feel very urgent about going, but I know I have to. I'm still not like the idea of having to get up at ass o'clock to get to Baltimore so I can endure pain and fear!
Ok, I really was going to try to get to bed at a decent hour, wasn't I?
