this is the beginning of 'it's good to be a girl' by Chrissy Prange, knit in Mushishi. 491 yards per skein by Plymouth Yarn Company. It's worsted which is not what the pattern calls for but, I rarely do what the pattern calls, which explains the basket of has beens and should have been better garments had I just paid more attention to what the heck I was doing, sitting in my living room.

Humans:Have a highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other species.
Lesson for the day: Use the tools you have to knit what you don't have.
Mental capability, reasoning, problem solving and an erect carriage+yarn = The recipe for my Life
Breath life into your yarn, that's what you bought it for in the first place.
On a side note: I am currently working on many many wonderful projects but none so wonderful as Emmaline in the pink Sprout yarn I picked up at the yarn shop.

It started out pretty well. I had four balls wound and then it all went to hell...........for crying out loud, I didn't even get it on the swift and all hell broke loose, that's how fast it happened.
Then only upside is this. Instead of 360 yards like I had last year, it was only 109.......Thank Goodness. I must admit though that at one point I was tempted to leave it as an offering on Marcy's desk in the morning, but then I had a beer and settled down.

On our recent road trip D and I drove through a lot of country side and passed a lot of farms. Farms that had crops and farms that had livestock. The livestock had baby livestock and I wanted nothing more than to get out of the car and go frolick with said baby livestock.
Me: Look!!! lambs!! Baby Lambs!! Lets go play with them
Me: Yes!! I want to, I need to, I must go frolic with the sheep and their babies!!!
D: No you don't
Me: Yes I do
D: No you don't. You think you do but you don't
Me: But I do.....
D: Sheep smell
Me: So do you..........
