Remind me why

Thursday was a lot of fun. Went to the dentist for a cleaning. I ended up having to wait, which gave me plenty of time to knit. While walking into the building, I saw two robins huddled in barren branches. Its the middle of January, they shouldn't be here.

I made it down to the LYS about noon. Stayed until 1530. Made twenty bucks. I know, usually I leave with less money, not more! I taught two ladies how to do a provisional cast on and short row toes. All because she wanted to knit toe-up socks and she was commenting how much trouble her daughter had with it. She hoped she wouldn't have the same problem, yadda, yadda, yadda. So I suggested we go over to the table and I teach her the provisional way. About 1/3 of the way through, her mother decided she wanted to learn. Comments like "What do short row do?" and "Are you sure?" and "I hate this" and "why are we doing this again?" Made me want to tear my hair out. Remind me why I teach knitters again?

Anyway I finished Dad's first sock. I'm frantically knitting the second one because his birthday is next Friday. (Knit faster, faster!!) I should have it done if I don't work on Grilltech's sweater.

...and now for something completely different: (Thanks Sandra)

You paid attention during 74% of high school!

68-84% Pretty good, you know that there are libraries and newspapers, and you remember what you've read. You were a child that wasn't left behind!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

Well you won't have time to read this because you should be knitting so you won't be mad at me for not taking that quiz. I also had a fun time at the dentist. They want me to get braces.

I just went to the dentist too. Found out that I have to pay for a set of x-rays because the insurance won't cover it. What a pain!

Good for you! I gave a tutorial in yarn (completely impromptu) the other day--but I didn't get paid:-(
