Calvin: Faces

For all my lady friends...

This came across a friend of a friend's list, and I think we need to get the word out! You can't be too careful out there, ladies!

I don't how many of you shop at Sam's Club or Costco, but this may be useful to know. I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. This happened to me and it could happen to you!!

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 23-year-old well-built guys come over to your car as you are packing your shopping in the trunk. They both are shirtless and start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their highly-defined chest muscles and rock-hard abs exposed.

It's impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' and instead ask you for a ride to another Sam's Club or Costco.

You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start talking dirty about what they want to do to you. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and begins kissing your neck and begs you to pull over so he can make love to you!!

While this is going on the other guy steals your purse!!

I had my purse stolen last Tuesday, Wednesday, twice on Thursday, again on Saturday, yesterday, and most it'll most likely happen again tomorrow.

You know it's true love when...

you find yourself casting on 96 stitches on size 1 DPNs.

And, when you go to try it on your victim SO, and you break one of your brand new, lovely, bamboo size 1s. (But, the cuff fit over the heel and hugs the ankle of the intended victim recipient, so it's all good.)

Yes, I'm still plugging away on the shawl, but I Had to start some socks or I would have gone crazy. I *always* have a was driving me nuts. (The, ummm, diamond patch sock (#2) that is permanently in my bag doesn't, doesn't count. I don't think I'll ever finish it - I *hate* the yarn, I hate the needles, I *hate* knitting a sock on, ummmm, yeah, it's going to remain a singleton, I think. I'll probably go back and do a pair in handspun, but we'll see.)

I bought a lot of Noro Lily (colorway #117) for another Cleo, but I think I'll make the Crest of the Wave top (from Elann) instead. Besides, J. prefers that top to Cleo, so there ya go. I have 10 skeins of it, so I've plenty to do either one. Just gotta finish the shawl, first.

Need to get back to spinning the loverly silk, too. Chasing Rainbows Bombyx is all that AND a box of chocolate - spins like buttah, is loverly, and the colors are fantastic. I want to dive right in, ply it from a center pull ball, and start knitting, but I won't - I'm going to do this *right*. It looks like I can squeeze 2 oz of silk on my when I finish this batch, I'll wind off on a storage bobbin and spin up the other 2 oz. Then I'll ply them onto my AA Jumbo flyer......

Ack! 6 days and counting.......
