Down the street on a warm summer day

Grilltech's sweater, pre-wash (37" x 22.5")

Grilltech's sweater, after washing (34" x 26"). He wore it today and loved it.

I started my sweater, only took three times to get the pattern right

List Day

  • I counted three cars at the bar this morning
  • The car had to go back to the shop yesterday, turns out it was split hose
  • I'm trying to update my resume, it's pretty hard to do
  • Now I'm trying to update documentation on how to do my job, it's not going well either
  • Maybe I should level set and call it good
  • Oops, maybe I should have checked to see if we have any mac and cheese before I start boiling water
  • Still waiting on the car, it appears we won't get it back today
  • Ah well, tomorrow is Friday the 13th, what could go wrong?

Green Blob

I have been working on his sweater zealously. I'm at that point where it's a love/hate relationship. It's HUGE because let's face it, neither of us are small people. I've separated for the neck line; it's now a purl row instead of a knit one. I really hate the purling. I've also had to rip back on it, twice. And I really hated that.

My current mantra is 3.5 inches, 3.5 inches. It does help, but you know how it goes. It's still taking forever to finish or just feels like it is, because it's really not taking overly long. (Is that my true neutral showing up?)

I'd show pictures, but honestly, you've seen one green blob, you've seen them all.

List Day

  • I counted five cars at the bar this morning
  • Words rarely heard here: flash flood warning in effect
  • Last night, I dreamed I killed a guy. Okay, I didn't kill him, but my actions resulted in his death. I woke up gasping. Sure the fact the guy was out to get me didn't make me feel any better
  • Not sure, why I'm feeling guilty about not helping a cow-orker enough. Clearing VM's, logging events, and doing data validation for yesterday and today for biggest site is enough. Stop already
  • Riddick opens this weekend. I can't wait
  • A couple of trees in the court yard are turning. It's not even fall yet
  • Funniest thing seen today? 13/31/13 - I want to know what the 13th month is called
  • Oops, might be working rich today. Nope, guess this means I should finish out the day
  • I'm going to make a deathflake pot holder (RAV). I'm not the only person to come up with this idea for the Deathflake Chart (RAV)
  • Another storm is blowing through, I can't wait for the rain to start

The other side, the yellow doesn't look as good as the blue side does. By the end, I was doing pretty good.

Last week, Baby Bird, Eldest and I went to a paint your own ceramic's place, mine:
