All Sorts of Stuffs

Ice cream dinner on Tuesday was a dinner gone wrong.  I spent a while "driving the porcelain bus" and, for some strange reason, am still feeling sick today.  I’ll be heading to a doctor on Tuesday and, hopefully, he’ll be able to take care of it.

That is not to say that it’s been a totally bad experience.  The SICK seemed to end the "out of sync" feeling I’ve been having for the past few weeks.

See?  Good with the bad.  But it will be a while before I attempt another ice cream dinner. (SOB!)

I was reading Grumperina‘s blog and saw that she had found a great site – True Jeans.  You plug in your HONEST measurements and it spits out a list of jeans that will fit you.  I ran right over, plugged in those numbers and waited.  No matches!  Nada.  Zilch. Zipporino.  I changed a few of the choices but when it came up with 2 pair of jeans, at $175 a pair, I decided I’d just keep wearing mine until they fall off of my body.  I live in PA and don’t work outside of the house.  Wesley doesn’t care if my butt looks perky in my jeans.  The mailman doesn’t seem to care if I even wear make-up.

HOWEVER, I went to Kohl’s today and even though I had to walk very slowly (see above thrilling nausea story) I found

(If you heard the Hallelujah Chorus, today, it was me from the dressing room.)
NOT JEANS and they fit!  I love my jeans but after a winter of nothing else, I enjoy switching off.

Knitting?  Oh, this IS a knitting blog, isn’t it? 

Conversation with my Mom:

Mom: "I see that there’s a Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY.  How far is that from you?"

Me: "About 2.5 – 3 hours. Why?"

Mom: "It might be fun……"

So Mom and I are going to go to Rhinebeck, together.  The last time we went to a fibery event, she got the "Neverending Pattern" (a.k.a. Horseshoe Lace Scarf).


Maybe she’ll find something else she’d like to latch onto, and knit it until my fingers bleed from the blocking. (Tom and I blocked 2 of them, this week.  In total?  I’ve lost track.  Feels like 15 or 20, tho.)


The Drunken Argyle Vest continues to grow.  Armhole decreases began last night.  The back should be finished in a week or 2.  LEAPING AND CLAPPING!!!


And the Wesley Socks are back in action.  I’ve decided to do a spiral rib on the leg.  I hope that this make them snug enough to stay up on Tom’s leg without doing any fancy calf shaping. (Nope, you don’t see a hole at that gusset.  Just look away.)


Mom’s coming out this weekend and Knitting group is tomorrow.  Weather promises to be lovely!

To all of the Mothers – be it for children or pet – I wish you all a VERY HAPPY MOTHERS’ DAY!

  1. I know what you mean about TrueFit. I came up with several that were over $200 a pair {Blink, blink} I must look for those Docker Capris–I totally resemble the desciption listed on the tag. Curvy–yepper, that’s me ;o)

  2. Whoo-hoo! Mapquest says it will take me 8.5 hours to get there, but I’ll see you at Rhinebeck!
    The argyle is looking good, and nope, no gusset hole here… (stitch it up when you’re done)

  3. *dreaming of going to rhinebeck, but knowing full well i won’t be able too.* Holy horseshoe lace, that’s big.

  4. I checked out that TrueJeans immediately after seeing her site. What a cool concept! I was able to find a significantly lower priced pair and may try them. Most were 175+ though. Can’t quite justify that one.

    I am leaping and clapping at this moment for you! The vest is growing, and it looks great!
