my Localest YS got a shipment of Socks That Rock and I headed down there last night around 2015 to partake in more lightweight superwash merino.

pic of yarn pR0n and finished tropical Trekking XXL socks, as well as the start of a Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock (now I see why you guys love LL yarn so much!) :


coworker wants to make a Vintage Bubble Bag, and I can’t find my book.

:!!!: :grrr: :!!!: :grrr: :!!!:

:wall: I hate that!

thanks Sara. :hug:
I tore apart my house looking for it. I’m pretty sure it’s here somewhere, and I’ll stumble across it, like the day,after I buy a replacement. :roll: :wall:

:zombie: I’m too sick to knit. that’s pretty bad. I just want a big hot bowl of ramen and sleep. :zombie:.

:zombie: CV is going to the Giants game… premium seats, bottom section 115 just behind home plate. I suppose I’ll try to watch it on TV and try to knit :zombie:

Are you feeling better?

:hug: :heart: :hug:

I’m sorry you didn’t get to go to the game! :hug:

:heart: thanks Sara :heart:

yes, I do feel better. I think by tomorrow I should be 100%.:thumbsup: 8)

CV did invite me when he got the tickets on Friday (gift from a customer), but I actually didn’t want to go. tho I do sit with them when they watch the Giants on TV, I don’t get into the game much and thought it more appropriate for him to take someone who’ll be more into the game.

:frowning: the game wasn’t televised :frowning: but he did manage to see himself for 2 seconds during the news sports clip. :smiley:

:shock: :shock: :shock:

Dyl came home from a week at his mom’s.

I think he grew taller !!!

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

Jody–are you feeling ok now?? I was looking at your last hauls, and man–you made out like a bandit!! I LOVE your Lexie–it’s marvelous!!

I love the Clover 5" dps too! After I got them, I never wanted to use 7" ones again!! Although–sometimes, you have to watch that stitches don’t slip off the ends…anyway–just wanted to say I’m in love with your LL socks, and your yarn. OH!! And I have all 3 Stitchionaries, too, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They’re awesome , aren’t they?? In fact–it’s hard not to get every knitting book I see–because I love books AND knitting so much I really want to order Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Knitting Workshop dvd from Amazon–it’s only $48, nd they say they have it in stock. BUt we have so many other expenses right now (dental work, and my car got totaled and we’re going to have it fixed…!), I’m hoping I’ll get it as a Christmas giftie or something!!

Knit ON, girl! :hug:

:heart: thanks Trudy! :heart:
sorry to hear about your car and the dental expenses. I know how that goes, I have to get a crown this year, which will be quite a bit for me out-of-pocket, and we’re constantly being urged to look into braces for Dylan. good luck with the car repair. I’m sorry to hear it’s totaled :(. make sure the repair shop treats you right, that they use decent quality parts, stay in constant touch with them, and go see the progress every day if you feel like it. :hug:

:heart: I made this on Saturday and it’s nothing short of absolutely yummy! :heart:

Drunken Cheesy Bread
From Real Simple

Butter for the pan
1/2 baguette, cut into 2-inch slices
1/2 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1/8 pound thinly sliced cooked ham
3/4 cup white wine
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) grated Gruyère

Heat oven to 400° F.

Place the bread in a buttered ovenproof skillet, a 9-inch square baking dish, or a casserole. Scatter the onion and ham over the bread. Pour the wine over the onion and ham and sprinkle with the pepper and Gruyère. Bake until the cheese has melted and begun to brown at the edges, about 20 minutes. Spoon onto individual plates.

Tip: If you don’t have Gruyère, you can substitute Swiss, Monterey Jack, fontina, or white Cheddar.

Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings

Dyl has what might be an aneurysm and is undergoing more tests now. it’s so hard to ask him if he’s scared, and let him know it’s ok to be scared, but not make him think he should be scared.
CV is with him now at UCSF and we should know more soon.

Jodi -

:heart: :heart: :hug:

I hope everything is ok. You and your family are in my prayers.

:pout: :hug: :heart: :hug:

My step-mum had two aneurysms - one punctured and the other was ‘fixed’ … she’s fine now

Thinking of you :hug: :heart:

yep, aneurysm. they knew this before he was transported to UCSF. they didn’t TELL CV that, he had to ask after overhearing some doctors talking :grrr: :grrr: :grrr: . sigh

but at least they narrowed it down. he’s currently undergoing the angiogram and in 2 hours or so they will decide how to treat it and where. if they decide to treat it with the insertion of small coils in the blood vessel, they will do that tonight. if not, they will call Kaiser and decide what Kaiser wants them to do.

I wish they would stop transporting him all over town. he was admitted yesterday at 1800 to our local hospital (Kaiser Santa Clara) then transferred at 2230 to Kaiser Oakland because that’s where the pediatric neurologists are. then this morning they wanted him at UCSF to do more tests/treat him to they transported him there around 1130. poor kid. I wish they’d keep him at UCSF…

I’ll drive up when I find out where he will end up (UCSF or back to Kaiser Oakland).

:heart: thank you Lisa and Amanda for the well wishes. your thoughts mean a lot. :heart:

they did the procedure last night, they inserted 29 platinum coils to try to shut off that artery. he was lucid though groggy and we got to see and talk with him. he was talking and laughing and asking for water. right now the prognosis and planning is on a day-to-day basis. they want to do another scan today, and idk what else. I’m at home, my friend Viv rode up there with me last night and we got home around midnight. I will drive up there sometime today to take CV some fresh clothes.

Thats good news :hug:

I hope the recovery goes well :hug:

:heart: thank you Amanda. :heart:

Yikes Jodi–I didn’t read this until today! I’m glad that everything seems to be going as well as possible!!! :hug:
