First of all....thank you to all you extremely sweet and supportive comments regarding my little dentist fiasco. I am happy to report that my tooth is now filled and thanks to some little pills I didn't shed one tear during the whole ordeal (either did the dental staff!!). I must have been pathetic because last night at 9:05 the phone rang. Joe looked at the caller ID and said "it's your dentist's office". I cringed....they're now calling me at home???????????? Anyways, I answered the phone and just about fainted when I heard "THE" voice. The dentist called me at home to see how I was making out!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess I was super-pathetic and since I have much more dental work in my future, I think he wants to insure that I'll go back. I just think it's funny.
So, thanks to my teeth, there has been little craftiness/sewing going on around here. Mostly tooth drama. I did receive in the mail today some pendants I ordered from Sink Daisy's Etsy Shop. (Sink Daisy also happens to be my sister). Here they are and I love them.
I've cast on a pair of socks to work on while at the cottage.
It's been about a year since I've knit socks. I can't tell you how much I love hand-knit socks!! I have about 5 or 6 pairs that I've knit and I wear them all winter long. LOVE them!! When I was knitting them over a year ago I was getting really good. I did a couple with different patterns on them and I was starting to knit them on two circular needles. And then I stopped. I don't know why. Knitting socks is fun! Unfortunately, since so much time has passed since I knit them before I feel like I'm back to square one again. I was going to cast on with two circular needles but I felt like I needed to knit a pair on DPN's just to remember how to do them. I'm not going to let another year pass before I make more. I think I'd like to have a pair on the needles at all times.
I'm in the midst of packing and cleaning and doing laundry before we leave for the cottage on Sunday. We will be gone a week. We do have access to dial-up Internet at the cottage, but it is way too slow to do any blog surfing. Essentially I just check e-mail and that's it. Sooooo...it's going to be a very tough week for me!! I will discover just how addicted I am to reading blogs and snooping into other people's lives!!
Anyways.....I'll be thinking of all of you while I'm drinking my morning coffee and knitting socks while looking at this.
Have a super week!!!
