Thanks for all of the comments and support with the pinwheel blankie. I fixed it. It's back where it was before the dropped stitches. I didn't have to catch them, and stop them from dropping further, because they were added only a few rounds before and stopped at those rounds.
I did it the hard way, and tinked back to the spot before they were added and started knitting again. It worked. I know there are easier ways, but apparently, I do everything the hard way! I think I'll get some red raspberry leaf tea, like Mama Bear suggested and relax a little. I need it after tinking so many rounds. hahaha
LD and I went to her Halloween Party at school last night. It was fun. I love to dress up, ..well..paint my face, anyway, and razz the wimpy parents who didn't wear costumes. The kids played games, and did crafts that were holiday related. Then, we had snacks that the parents brought. I had very healthy fruit and some pretzels. I skipped the sugary treats and ice cream. So did Cindy, who was dressed as a really cool Cleopatra. Of course LD made up for it by having a rice crispie treat and ice cream with sprinkles (and of course candy, candy, candy). haha
Look at my Lil' Pirate! Arrrr! She wasn't the only pirate there, but she might have been the most creative one. She made up her own outfit with stuff we already had. Then, she had to have a scar painted on her face. She thinks I can paint anything. I've never done a scar, but it really turned out well. It looked more like an infected gaping wound, but it had the effect she wanted.
I got rave reviews of my face painting. This is a pic from after the party, so I'm a little smudgy.
The boys have their faces all planned for Halloween. MM is going to be a KISS band member again. SP wants to be Alice Cooper. Their dad has them into some weird music! LOL! I have to say, they definitely have the hair for those costumes. I guess we'll just have to get up extra early on Tuesday, so I can paint their faces.
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. I intend to sleep in.
As usual, housework is calling! Actually, I am going to read some blogs, and then go do evil housework, then I am going to knit, knit, knit!
Have a great one!
Why this? Because it's of vital importance.
