All those people who preordered, waited in line for 12 or more hours, who scrambled to get The Book yesterday...


Picked up this afternoon (a day after the craziness). 40% off jacket price. Total time spent waiting?

90 seconds, the bulk of which was taken up with the elderly woman ahead of me in line not being able to hear the cashier.

Good thing I just got to the straight stocking stitch section of my (not so) Beaded Cami.


I spent my afternoon with the book propped open, knitting round and round... Ahh...

If only I didn't have to go to work tomorrow...

Mom Update
Mom has an appointment at the cancer clinic on July 31 and then a biopsy follow up with her surgeon on August 2. She isn't sure if the appointment at the cancer clinic will just be an evaluation or if they will actually start treatment. They told her to be prepared for a 3 hour appointment. I'm hoping to be able to take that week off to go with her to her appointments. I have most of my vacation days left, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers for her.


  1. Oh, I'm envious... I'm not even buying the book until my current huge project is done. And then I'm going to read and knit all day!

  2. Lori, I found your blog through the post on whipup. My heart goes out to your family. I don't pray, exactly, but I sing, and I will be singing for you and your mother.


Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by. I'd love to hear from you.
