and it's Thursday - tomorrow is Friday! Whee! (Yes, I AM easily amused, thanks for asking! :grin:) Didn't sleep worth a hoot, but...ah, well. BTDT - it'll get better. (Paranoia is your friend - it keeps you alive. Sucks while in the middle of it, but....oh, well.)

Got absolutely NO spinning done last night, but did unweave most of scarf #2. It's log cabin, and I didn't like how it was looking....so I'm going to play around with the color repeats and see if I can't come up with something that looks good.

Got 2 rows done on the shawl......I dunno. I like the pattern...but. Lots of unresolved stuff floating around on the yarn - it's NOT the fiber, huaman does BEAUTIFUL stuff...it's....yeah. Need to work on putting the feelings into words. I will, more than likely, try to get a few more ounces of this colorway - I LOVE the colors, LOVE the fiber....this yarn? Not so much.

Hit JoAnn's yesterday, but they have no pointy #7s. Looked at Addi's online...THEY don't look pointy enough. :ponder: Gotta see what else is out there - my Options are pointy enough, so I need to do SOMETHING.

Got the 3-point hitch all undone....but still can't budge the PTO. I don't have the upper-body strength necessary - it was a BITCH to hook the PTO up the last time; it took my next-door neighbor and I a couple of days to get it to seat properly, so I'm not surprized I'm having problems now. Huh - wonder where I put the WD-40? (When in doubt, grab a bigger hammer....if that doesn't work, grab the WD-40. Then repair it with Duck tape...:grin:)

The check for Starz's papers cleared, so I should be getting her DNA kit any day now. Then, we wait for Heart's.

Oooh, I actually have to work today - better get to it! :giggle:

You could try the knit picks options. I think they come in a pointier version now. You could also use bamboo or wood and put the pencil sharpener to them. :)

You need to grease the daylights out of it....so the sleeve can easily move back and forth. Check for rust first. If it's there you can bang away on it, then grease 'er up.

Thanks - I was able to "walk" it off this evening...guess all the colorful metaphors worked! :grin:

I'll get sweet geek to grease it up (oh...THAT sounds kinky! :twisted) this weekend.....
