Blocking pins! I only have enough to do 3 squares at a time. Which means it is going to take weeks to block them out at that rate. So I need to get more pins. Just for giggles, I started blocking them yesterday. Even at 3 at a time, it'll mean those 3 are done, right? RIGHT???
At the moment I can't leave the house. I am waiting for the fridge repair guy to come by. Last week the temp in the fridge went up to 48 degrees. Correct temp for a fridge is 33-38F. (why yes, I have a thermometer in my fridge. Doesn't everyone?) We had to crank the thermostat in the fridge almost to the top setting to get it down to where it should be. It still hovers around 38. Not too high, but certainly almost too high. Anyway, when we bought the fridge, we got a package whereby we get a free service call once a year until 2012, I think it was. So this is my call. The irritating part is that the time window they gave for the service call was 8-4pm. So I had to make sure I was up and dressed (sweatpants is dressed, right?) and have my hearing aids in so I can hear the guy when he comes by. If he comes by this morning. When I am normally ,on my days off, still in my pj's and bathrobe, with uncombed hair and no hearing aids.
Sigh. The joys of adulthood.

I'm liking it. Which is why I'm irritated at the enforced delay.
God, grant me patience. And I want it right now.

The wood needle pulled out of it's metal end! I saved the stitches, fortunately. Unfortunately, when I tried to Crazy Glue the tip back in, some glue must have gotten on the threads and now the tip does not screw into the cable. Knitpicks is sending me a new one. Yay! That does mean Tomato is on hold for the nonce. Boo.
I guess I should finish the hubbunny's boot liners then.....

I haven't taken a picture of the Black Tomato yet. At least, not a decent picture. By the time I have gotten home this week, the light is gone. Flash pics of black yarn=not so nice pictures. So y'all will have to wait. Ha! I'm a big tease.

I have some Berocco Denim Silk in the stash. I might try the Leaf Tank with that next time. But for the moment, I cast on for a second Tomato top from no Sheep for You. I wear the first one I made a lot, and there is enough of the yarn I just frogged for it, so that's what it will be. I had a couple of other ideas, but the swatch just wouldn't cooperate, so Tomato it is!
At the moment it is literally 2 rows, so, no pic of that yet. Maybe tomorrow, or the day after.....

Here is the conversation:
Me: Pharmacist speaking, how can I help you?
Person on the phone (PP): my crotch hurts.
Me: Pardon? (thinking I had heard it wrong)
PP: My crotch hurts.
Me: Ummmm, did you drop something on it?
PP:No, there's like,a bump, but I can't see it. I feel it.
Me: (thinking "ickyickyickyicky!!!!!") try putting some Polysporin on it. Sounds like you have a pimple or a cyst.
PP: I tried that but it made it worse.
Me: (thinking how does Polysporin make it worse? Don't want to know. REALLY don't want to know) Perhaps you should call your doctor and get them to look at it.
PP: I did , but they can't see me today. If I come in, can you...
Me: (Very hastily) No NO! That's okay. There's nothing else I ca do for you without getting a prescription from your doctor.
PP: Oh, okay. Bye.
I was so grossed out. Totally icked. I was ready to yark. So I thought I'd share it with all of you.

This appears to be a winner. So I wrote down what I did in my journal so I won't have to do that again!
I think I will felt up version 1, stuff it, add catnip and give it to Raven. Can't let the toy supply get low.
Thank you momma! I will leave the cones of yarnz alone for a little longer-Raven

I have not actually counted how many to do still. I'm afraid I might do something foolish like run out into the street with my metal dpns yelling "how many squares??? How many squares? HOW MANY SQUARES!!!!" and get all stabbity on the lawn. While that might get me into the psych ward for an evaluation and away from work, I suspect not much useful knitting would get done as they would probably sedate me to the eyeballs.
I probably ought to go knit some more squares now.
