hi all! before we get to the (just a teensy bit of) knitting content, I just had a little psa to put out there for all 2 of you who read this blog. don't leave your outgoing bills in your mailbox, unless it has a lock on it. "oh, I never leave my bills in the mailbox! are you crazy?" well, yes, I guess I am, a lot of the time. and fine, so maybe I'm naive and like to think that people aren't so mean that they would steal checks out of random poor people's mailboxes and take them home and use them to create fake checks using the poor person's signature and bank account and writing it to themselves in the amount of (where X = the balance of the poor person's checking account) roughly X+$2000 and make the poor person have to go to the bank in the middle of the work day and sit there for almost 2 hours filling out paperwork and opening a new account and a bunch of other stuff. thanks a bunch, monique williams (scientologist?)!! luckily, you are stupider than I am, because you actually deposited it into an account you opened at the exact same bank where I am a customer so that it was super easy to trace. thanks, wamu for being patient and helpful, but also damn you for giving me overdraft protection, which I didn't really want. anyway, hopefully this all straightens itself out soon and I get my money back... and I'll stop ranting now. (deep breath...)
cuz, look! I think someone might actually have an FO tonight:yay for baby hats! so fast and easy and cute. I'm debating if I should make the little seed stitch strap to tie under the chin that the pattern calls for, or use a ribbon or not do anything at all. I suspect isa will not tolerate having something tied under her chin, but it would be so cute, wouldn't it?
