I forgot to put a coin in for scale, but the red yarn there is sock yarn. I think it's spinning up to worsted-ish. Possibly a bit larger. Since this is for a felting project, it doesn't really matter....

The evening passed and I was watching a decorating show in which another couple were having trouble choosing a colour to paint the walls. I said,"Pick the blue you idiots. It's nice!" Hubby responded," so you want your sex-swing to be blue?" Rather than get into a discussion about how I didn't think we needed it, I said yes to shut him up. Hubby then went on to ask what colour the stripper pole should be. I told him chrome, looked at him like he was an idiot and went back to watching my show.
What does hubby do?
"see, I would have gotten it wrong with a brass pole. This is why couples need to communicate"
I'm going to be a little leery coming home from work for the next few days. What if he decides to,ahem, redecorate the bedroom?

Blow it out your Ass
Other stuff on my tv:
Since I am hearing impaired, on my tv, I have the closed captioning option turned on. I was watching Raw is War (wrestling) and one of the women wrestlers has a shtick where she comes out and sings completely off key. Usually when someone sings, the closed captioning either writes out the words to the song, or just puts up musical notes so you know it is singing. When Jillian (the terrible singing wrestler) came on , the caption read ,"Jillian singing horribly"
And, as a reward for reading this far...cute kitty pic:

This scenario happens regularly. Do I look stoopid? (don't answer that,you in the back) How is it that everybody takes their pills as directed and yet run out early. But only on the "good" ones? Which, by the way, we count twice before handing them out to make sure there are exactly the right amount.

It is coming out roughly worsted weight, I think. Since gauge for a felted box is pretty unimportant, I'm not too worried about the exact weight.

I thought the bill was rather amusing, as they have the provincial and federal taxes identified with the Premier of Ontario, Dalton McGuinty, and the Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, respectively. So that we know who to blame, I suppose....
On saturday, my sister and I stopped by the Cheese Boutique. They have an amazing assortment of imported goodies. Among the wonders is a cheese room. You can actually go in and look at (but don't touch!) the cheese.
Saturdy continued with a lovely afternoon and evening spent with the Mezzodiva herself. That's right, she of the lovely Hibiscus for Hope sock pattern. (if you haven't got it yet, you want it. Go. Get it. I'll wait)
We met for a late lunch, a couple of beer, coffee.....and knitting of course!
Alas, I had to frog the knitting I was working on back to where it was at the beginning of the knitfest. I started the heel too early and the sock was short. However, the company was fabulous. She is as lovely in person as she in on the internet and it felt like I was meeting an old friend that I had known for years. The afternoon/evening just flew by. It too seemed short, although it was actually over 6 hours of fun! None of us wanted it to end, Unfortunately, one can only stay awake for so long before one falls over. So we had to call it a day. There will be more days, I'm sure.

Yes, that is a dime. The little skein is about 15 yards. Not sure about the wpi, haven't done that yet. I was just so excited I had to show all of you!
It's not consistent yarn. But that just improves it's charm, right?

I think another inch or so (which works out to about 2 more rounds) I think I will be binding off. Then I need to add the jean waistband at the top and line it. That will probably take me 6 months or so at my normal speed....
The texture is really interesting.
I knit the bottom as a square and picked up stitches around the edge to continue knitting it in the round.
