I don't know what my husband put in my soda last night, but it is fully responsible for all this nonsense.

In my strive to make a less obnoxious orange, I find that I struggle with getting my yellow to take. The water may look clear, but I assure you that it is full of yellow.

Meh.

I did think there were going to be like two half skeins in there, but I also like getting the Soak and notions every month and the four balls that I got in this one do add up to a full skein of yarn. I may keep it for a while longer. I'm holding out for a Lorna's monthly sock box. :p I even emailed them yesterday.

I've looked into Yarn Box before, and I think they've lowered their prices because it was not quite as affordable as it is now. Or maybe we're just better off financially now than we were a few years ago.

No idea how YouTube fixed itself, but I'm super glad it's feeling better.
I bought stuff, ya'll!!!

I think that for the most part, tiny yarn + hook isn't bad. It only sucks on really narrow tubes. The tops of the arms and legs might get a little annoying, but the body and head shouldn't be too bad.

I tried again today, several times in fact, to get the newest episode to you. No go. YouTube is still having its issues. We ran some tech jargon mumbo jumbo stuff… and by we I mean my husband who is a total nerd… and it definitely is issues with YouTube. I’m looking into alternative options for hosting.

I really suck at remembering all the things on where to update and whatnot, so if you want to keep up to date on where I am in this process, please hit this link and fill out the form. That is the absolute best way to keep in touch with me.

I feel like I’m adrift at sea without you, guys.

If you could knit/crochet with only one weight for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Picture of cat, because cute. Yarn included to keep it on topic. :p

I went with my two kids (9 and 4) on a Saturday morning and found out that they were understaffed by one person. You would never know if someone hadn't told me! We planned to just browse around, pick up a few notions, and maybe a new pattern. We were there for two hours, and loved every minute!! I would come again for the fantastic fabrics that I found while there. So many of them are adorable, cute, funky, and some others are down right hilarious! My son loved the mustache fabric and the matching buttons. I love that everything is clearly labeled and stored by fabric type, and the quality is SO much better than the Joann's and Walmarts. It's a bit far for me to travel there whenever I need something, being about 40 miles away, but I will make my lists and go when I've got enough stuff to make the gas spent worth it. If it weren't for the very friendly and helpful staff, I don't think I would do this. I felt like a pest being new to sewing, but they were just so amazing. They helped me choose a fabric, color, and matching the color of the notions and thread. I got a tour of the shop, and despite my many, many, many, many apologies for my kids playing in the rolls of fun fur, I was told again and again that it was fine and not to worry about it. I even got some recommendations for some gluten free pretzels for my son's allergies, and the name of soy-free chocolate chips for my allergies. And a recommendation for a great bakery nearby for lunch. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the employees are, and how helpful, even when they are short staffed. I'm over the moon about the fact that you can order online, and having been to the shop, I know that they really do care about what they're doing, and know what they're doing. If you want to place an online order, go ahead and check that box to have them pick up some coordinating thread for you. They do a great job.

I grew up not too far from Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, and I went in knowing this was a smaller zoo. I was a little underwhelmed with the aquarium until we got to the shark exhibit. That was pretty cool. I wish the habitats were bigger for the animals, as they all seem quite small, but the only way to get those is for the zoo to get more funding, and with the Seattle zoo not too far away, I'm not sure what the chances of that happening are. The only thing we didn't get to see were the polar bears because the glass for their habitat was being replaced. I did love, however, that they don't charge additional fees to any of the exhibits like they do in the larger zoos. The staff is really nice, though all of the concessions except for the cafe were shut down (it was November). The entire grounds were kept clean, and it doesn't smell like poop, even by the elephants. :) We plan to go again closer to Christmas when they have the entire zoo lit up at night.

I went just before the evening rush hour, and there was only one other person in there other than the 3 employees. Everyone was very nice. Even though this was my first time there, the woman who did my nails (full manicure on my real nails) made her best attempt at conversation. We talked about weather and family, nothing controversial or uncomfortable. My nails came out really nice, and she never hurt me once when trimming the rough skin off my fingers or scraping the dye (I work with dye, especially lots of reds and black, without gloves) from under my nails. I'll totally be going here again.
