It looked so dang good before I had to go and think for one second I understood the concept of transferring your work to the double pointed needles of death (got that little expression from reading a really entertaining blog called Crazy Aunt Purl. Check it out!)
All I can do now is wait, and patiently hope that my supremely talented ecology professor/knitter/neighbor Sarah will be able to come to my emotional rescue today after work. Sarah, did i mention I'll offer Aidan up for free mother's helpering for a year if you can save my touque?
Because look at how stinkin' cute it was at 4 p.m. yesterday? That's all I'm sayin'.
Just getting to work now because we had an unexpected need to take Chippie to the vet this morning. Last night, her muzzle and the area above her eyes started getting lumpy and swollen. Poor little monkey. I wish I could say something clever about how I shouldn't have been testing all those cosmetics on her, but…I really am against animal testing and wouldn't want to give the wrong impression.
One steroid shot later, we'll see how she's doing. Right now, she's asleep on the floor. So far, so good.
Anyhoo…back to work, and making loose plans to leave my family and go on the road as a Crowded House groupie.
