| Weekend Finale
| Sunday, February 11, 2007
|It was a good weekend. Yesterday Grim and I went to my mother's house. It was nice to see everyone. I haven't see Dave (my mom's boyfriend) since he went on tour. He's an interesting character sometimes but I like him alot. Grim cooked dinner for the family. Chicken Parm, his secret sauce and penne. It was awesome but with one little hiccup...
The stove blew up. We seriously thought it was going to catch fire. It turns out the element (sp?) blew in it. From what I hear, I was in the living room, it sparked and flamed blue. All I heard was something like a buzzer going off that kept getting louder then a loud *POP*. I ran in and smoke was billowing out of the oven and here's Grim white as a ghost, holding his chicken marinera. I watched as the elemant yoinked itself apart because it was burning orange. It cooled and settled. No Fire, THANK GOD!!
Dinner was not lost though, the broiler still worked and he used that to melt the cheese on the chicken. Dinner was a success if anything, everyone devoured it and I beemed. He was so nervous it wasn't going to come out right. Then we watched 2 episodes of Ghost Whisperer and I worked on my Brown and Cream monk hat.
We go home, relax and then it happens. I realize the pattern isn't working out. I had to cast on an additional 10 stitches to the 40 it called for. This means I changed the whole decrease pattern towards the end. So I am fiddling with it and see what I can do.. Slip!! AHHHH! Dropped stitch! I try to collect it but it just keeps getting more and more tangled. I frogged the thing because I can just start over with my 50 sts and use the suggestions from my fellow Get Stitchiers and do it right this time. Although I didn't think of that then, and I was pretty upset.
Today, was hang out day. I played on the computer, did house work and that was it. I didn't feel like doing anything else. I didn't even feel like knitting today which is typical of me after I have to frog something.
Tomorrow is another work day and hopefully I get my green yarn. I can't wait to get my hat done. It seems like everyone has gotten theirs together and I am still so far behind. I did make one but I have noone to wear it so it doesn't really qualify for the avatar part.
