We Can Print!

A cable was purchased, software installed, test page tested...we are printing. Life is good again. And Trek will be pleased to know that the first thing I printed after the test page was her Arizona Lace Sock pattern! It looks like a fun one! Not sure when I'll get to it, but it's in the Knitting Knotebook at this point.

The truck is still working just like it never had it's little weather related temper tantrum the other day. My brother is thinking that it's the fuel filter...I have no idea. I just need a vehicle to go from one place to another with as little drama as possible. I don't think this is too much to ask.

I did, in fact, tempt the fates last night and work on the sock for a bit. The world did not come to a crashing, fiery end so I guess it was a safe move. I'm using Brittany wood dpns for these bad boys and am hating the way the cotton clings to them. I'm on the hunt for some metal ones that will allow for some slippin' and slidin'. I run the risk of rogue stitches escaping the confines of the needles, but I'm thinking this will be a fair trade-off. I'm weak from the Monkey Pox for crying out loud. I can't be fighting with yarn that doesn't want to come off a needle. Life is too short.

Otherwise, it was a good day. I slept the whole night through and, while sore upon awaking, was far better able to deal with it having 8 hours of sack time under my belt. My big problem now is yawning. Yawning forces a deep breath. Deep breaths hurt like a mother! I sort of do this weird little gasping, side clutching move whenever a yawn comes upon me. I'm gonna work on this one...

Seriously...have you ever tried to fight a yawn? It's nigh impossible!!!!

Everyday at work I fight yawning....
Glad you're feeling better!

Gee, Diana said it all. It's really embarrassing to be doing a performance review and not be able to stop yawning. Have a great weekend!
