Good news, bad news...

The swift finally got here and I love it more than the cat. Okay. Okay. As much as the cat. When she's not laying on my chest. Maybe. Photos tomorrow when I'm not having a cat-hair induced asthma attack.

The bad news, Etsy is not happy tonight and as of now, I can't get my yarns posted for sale. I'll try again tomorrow and hopefully get it posted during lower-traffic time.

Oh, more good news -- I just did a double batch of easter egg circle rainbow sock yarn. It's a little more pastel than the first batch, but the colors are more even.

...where'd I put the damn inhaler? (Oh, and bad news, when I use the damn inhaler my hands shake too bad to knit. Grrr.)

Bad Sekhmet--she really is the Goddess of Destruction, isn't she? (But I can't wait to see pictures of Sekhmet and The Swift.)

I just got an umbrella swift and my cats seem very very facinated with it while it is in use, and interested in a manner that can only foreshadow scary stuff

Albuterol inhaler, right?
I HATE that Albuterol and the shakes from it but breathing is kind of essential *sigh*

But isn't that first breath of air wonderful?! Two years ago I came up allergic to straight Abuterol and now I have Combivent. Let's see how long that lasts shall we?

Julie-I meant to get back to you sooner but life has been very hectic in bad ways with a family situation. Also, bless you. The bright yarn really helped just by being there unexpectedly when we picked up the mail yesterday after a very long week and weekend. I'm sorry for taking so long to get back to you. May I email you to straighten out how much I owe you?

Swift = good!

I have a question regarding crock pots. What I know as a crock pot (large earthenware cooking pot with lid, no electrical wire whatsoever, goes in the oven) doesn't seem to match what you know as a crock pot. I assume its an electrical kitchen appliance that plugs in and heats the contents to a certain temperature and keeps it there until you turn it off? If so I know that as a slow cooker, aha and can borrow one from my mother (she doesn't know this bit yet).

Oh, and last night I saw the programme about clovis people and will write it up tonight for you. check the blog tomorrow.

I definitely see some new yarn at Etsy now!
I'm a day and 3 posts late, but LOVED the VK review. I almost wish they had NOTHING worthwhile, but then they throw in that sock section or some such and I get sucked back in!

Catie said...

for better or for worse, I can tell y'all that the technoblah type of sock yarn, wool, frogs quite well (argh at the need to frog though - twice and it still looks good to me)

Julie said...

Yup, Albuterol, but I'll ask the doc about the different kind and see what she thinks.

Jester (or anyone else), you can e-mail me at JTheaker@sc.rr.com
