Gone to the dogs July 14, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 11:02 am

Dogs_pulsewarmer I have been trying to figure out this beaded pulsewarmer for a while.  The yarn is by Norsk Kunstvevgarn.  I love the color–it reminds me of the Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk #3.  The bead pattern is Model Dogs.  But I don’t think the yarn and beads are working.  I started out on a US0 but I just knit a few rows on the US1 and it still seems really tight.  Any thoughts?

I wanted to thank everyone for their support and understanding regarding the bus issues.  Owen was picked up this morning and the driver was really friendly.  However, he was picked up at 7:30am…a one hour bus ride.  I hate that.  If he gets dropped off last–after being picked up first–I am going to go nuts.  The district called this morning to see if he got the bus and they apologized.  The other family demanded compensation for gas and mileage.  I guess that’s why they got a bus a day earlier. 

One last thing, gosh I have been a posting fool this week, but have any of you tried Coke Zero?  Oh my gosh, I love it.  I had really cut back on my diet soda intake.  I wasn’t even buying 12 packs.  It seems I have been roped back in.  I still enjoy a nice Pepsi though.  Oink Oink!!

    OHGODYES, you KNOW I’m already addicted to Coke Zero. I can show you the empties if you don’t believe me. You should have said “oink-oink” about me, not Ann.

    Just catching up – sorry about the bus HASSLE – jeez, you would think they could get that right! Jealous, I mean, happy for you about the re-model!

    I am glad to read that the bus came today — they SHOULD get it right. The dormer looks great! I am staying away from Coke Zero — already have enough diet soda addictions (Polar Diet Cranberry Dry — the best, most delicious!)

    hey —- are you down there drinking ….. coke???!! I am telling Boar – you’re in trouble!

    ps. that dormer is so cool! can’t wait too see it all happen!

  5. I’m glad you got an apology from the district and that Owen was on the bus this morning.

    On another note, I’ve never even heard of Coke Zero, or Polar Diet Cranberry Dry, but I LOVE Diet Coke…don’t/can’t go a day without it…us poor Canadians with apparently no diet soda variety. Something must be done…haha!

    I am glad the bus situation worked out and I hope he was the first one dropped off…we love Coke Zero…I just came across it at the grocery and hadn’t heard about it at all. I’m a big Diet Coke fan, but I love regular Coke so the Zero option is great…take care and have a great weekend.

    I see what you mean about the beads not working, I think it’s because of the mohair…since you like the yarn I can’t sujject changing yarn…so maybe bigger bead? I don’t drink diet…can’t take the taste of the supplemental sure. I just try not to drink coke on a regular basis, …only on the weekends, it tends to bloat me and also does not really kwench my thirst. I mainly drink rassberry juice…it’s called Vitaminchic because it has added vitamins to make it “healthy” as it’s a kiddy drink.

    Kudos to you for doing the bead knitting thing. I’ve tried it and tried it, and for me, it was just a pain in the fanny!
