If I say I'm not knitting ~ I'm probably lying

Hey, thanks for all of the nice comments. Right now I can sure use them. Kadiddly left me one about the History Channel, because at her blog I'd left a comment about Digging For The Truth. I love archeology, and like she said, that Josh Bernstein makes the show just a little more interesting, if you know what I mean. hehehe*wink, wink At least he's a little older than I am. I hate it when I get a little Hollywood crush, and then find out the actor or TV personality guy is younger than I am!

I have been such a bad blogger! I have reasons, though, and if you want to see what I knit, you have to read (or skim) through them first. haha

This sounds familiar, I know I read something just like it on someone else's blog recently. You know when you think a person is your friend and then you find out they are just backstabbing liars? Yeah, that. I've been feeling a little whiny and sorry for myself. You can usually tell if I'm not feeling like my normal self if I'm wearing my glasses. That either means it's really early and I haven't put my contacts in, or I don't feel well, so I'm not going to bother. My friend Carrie talks about putting good out into the world. I try to think of that every time I feel mean toward this person. I want a good, peaceful world, so I'm trying to be nice. Small town living, small minds. I know it doesn't have to be this way! Urgh!!

Ahhh, I feel a little better now. At the very least, I know one person who is always on my side. My best friend, Lisa. And if she thought of being on 'the other side' I'd just remind her of the cool things I knit for her. :D Like this wonderful hat I did for the Get Stitchy! Stitch for Chicks along. And yes, I did say wonderful! The pattern is fun, and quick. I have been getting tons of compliments on my green hat, and when I say "Thank you, it was so fun to knit." I love the looks non-knitters give me when they say "You made that!? It's so great!" hehe. See, commentslut.

In the last picture on the right, you can see the matching bracelet my LD made for her Aunt Wheeza. I'm going to have to put that kid to work and put some of those on my shop. **Just joking, child labor law people!

I am going to post the stats and a link to the pattern on my other blog. You can see what yarn I used and all of that there. Let me just tell ya, I used Sugar & Cream, and that must make this the least expensive hat in the world, but it looks great! I just might have to make me an orange one. My kids all want one, too. At least I could afford to make three more with the cotton.

Now, I have to go play nurse. I hate it when my kids are sick! LD is home coughing her poor little head off. She was not happy with me this morning when I told her she was not going to school. She doesn't have a fever, but she was hacking uncontrollably. She looked miserable, too. I know she wouldn't be learning much, if I sent her, and here she can breathe some steam from the vaporizer and hopefully get rid of that wheeze. She gets sick so quickly ~ overnight, and hopefully it will be gone as quickly, or off to the doctor we'll have to go.

Hope everyone is doing and feeling well. I think before I make the lil' convalescent some more tea, I'll go update the FO blog. Have a great one!

Julie said...

Great hat! I hope LD feels better real soon. And I'm sorry you were hurt by a friend. Been there and it just plain sucks!

del said...

The hat IS great (hee hee at "commentslut."). Hope everyone gets better over there soon!

You must be proud that LD is the only child in the universe to be upset when their parent(s) tell them to stay home from school. =) I hope she feels better. Being sick stinks for everyone. I feel you on dishonest friends. Growing up I never thought I had so many but they weeded themselves out over time. I used to get sad at the thought then I would stop and think "well who the h*ll needs them anyway" -=giggle=- The orange hat is as beautiful as the green one!!

Whoa! I hadn't read yesterday's entry when I saw you this morning. Hmm... wonder who the deceitful, rotten person was? Ah, well. Best to try to let it go. I only say nice things about you, always! =) Your hats look great, and I'm going to knit one before summer, I swear....

Sending you good, healthy wishes... and since I've been in a similar situation with toxic people I can only say this - you are better off without them. There are so many people who love you. They are the ones who are worth it. Hope the recovery is quick!

Phoneys should be kicked in the crotch. Do you need to me to come and take care of some business? I know all about small town living. I don't pay attention to that many people, seems to work :)

I hope the little lady is better fast.

Nora said...

Hope it all gets better for you. (You could always move down here y'know...) x
