Wow, it is SO foggy outside – yesterday as well as today! You step out into it and it feels like you’ve been rained on within 2 minutes. Plus it’s a bit hard to see where you’re going & all. LOL Anyway – I’m waiting for the sun to come up so I can see a bit better in the fog for my run today. I plan on a 3 miler again today. I’m debating whether I’m going to take Leonardo or not… I’m kind of leaning towards not, actually.
I do love running in the fog – the world seems so very quiet, like it’s this big ole blanket muffling every little tweet, chirp, squeak as well as the rumble from the car engines. It reminds me of the silence of snow falling in many ways. :)
So. I dropped a couple stitches in that freaking scarf. It laddered down too ugly to save. *sigh* Luckily, I only had 6 rows done that I had to rip back. I’m just about caught back up to where I was – this go round actually went much faster than the first pass through. I didn’t get to work on it at all last night, as the youngest manlet & I worked on the home computer instead.
Yesterday was a banner day for the oldest manlet ~ he got his braces off!! w00t! It took far less time than I had expected, so I only got to knit 2 rows on my scarf while I waited. When he came out, he was grinning like mad… I swear, he didn’t stop grinning until he went & took a nap 3 hours later! Just *look* at this awesome smile…
No word yet on how much longer *I* get to wait to have mine off. I’m over them already & cannot wait for them to come off! Luckily, he said it didn’t really hurt too badly to get them off, just a couple parts when it felt like they were pulling his teeth out. LOL I had to have a couple brackets removed to be repositioned, so I have a pretty good idea what it’s going to feel like. Let’s just say it was not pleasant. Something they neglect to tell you while you decide which type of brackets to get – the ceramic (clear) brackets hurt like a bitch to get off! Apparently, the metal ones are much easier to take off. I find this out AFTER I’ve already had the clear ones put on, of course. :)
Today’s Ravelry Search
So, I’m done with the Valentine related searches – that Hallmark holiday is tomorrow – if you plan to knit your sweetie something, it’s a bit late now, right? ;) Plus, I just had to search on something related to my other news. ;)
Happy Friday, all!
