Waiting for Sears January 19, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 10:02 am

They are supposed to come fix the dryer.  I have gotten two hangups from them and no parts in the mail.  I am crossing my fingers that they have the part on the truck–if it ever comes. 

What to do though?  Do I knit or do I catalog stash again?  I want to knit but I need to catalog.  P1010003_2 Here’s what’s currently tempting me.  Kevin’s Dale of Norway sweater that was unearthed just in time for the upcoming Olympics!  St. Brigid–who received some attention from Ann and I on Tuesday.  Ann and I had a bit of a disagreement on where I was in the charts.  I think Boar needs to settle it!  And the red scarf.  Reddish scarf…cognac…that counts, right?  I am not liking the pattern I chose.  I was going to do  a shawly thing but they say scarf.  I had to wind that freaking Fiesta by hand.  Owen.  P1010002 A trip to the hardware store is in need.  The wing nuts are nowhere to be found! 

In a bit of sad, icky news.  Granny is sick.  She is so full of piss and vinegar that it has hit me completely off guard.  I guess I didn’t realize just how attached I am to her.  My mom and I agreed, that while she is away, Granny is like a surrogate mom.  Work sucked yesterday–I missed her.  It’s just not the same.  I wouldn’t even put the radio on…I didn’t think I could handle them playing her song…So, please keep Granny in your thoughts and prayers.  She’s my friend.

    I hope Granny gets better very soon, Katy.

    Knit. Forget about cataloguing the stash right now. Always takes waaaaay too much time away from the purpose of the stash — knitting.

  3. Cara Says:

    I’m so sorry Kathleen! My best wishes out to Granny. And hugs to you! I hope Sears comes through with the parts and I vote for fair isle, since that’s where my mind’s been lately.

  4. Margot Says:

    Wait – Granny isn’t really your Granny.

    I must have come in too late.

    Not that I’m devaluing your realtionship with her, I’m just confused.

    Sending fiber-y, bloggy, love to Granny, and you!

    “Get Well Soon” wishes to Granny!!

    Hope your dryer gets fixed soon — with three kids, I’ll bet you’re really missing that convenience — and I hope you find some wing nuts.

    ; ) Hugs!!

    I hope Granny is on the mend soon! Can you do an hour of cataloguing and then a couple of hours of knitting…alternating til one or the other is finished?

    Hurry up, Sears!!

    I hope Granny is back behind the counter in no time —- I didn’t know she had a ‘song’! which one is it?

    fiesta is a pita. While I love the colors, it is hell to wind and at times knit. I know at least one store owner who said no more! and will not carry it.


  9. Nancy Says:

    Send my best wishes to Granny for a quick recovery!

    There is way to much going on to catalog stash just knit and drink tea.

    I, like Margot, until recently thought Granny was your granny. I didn’t figure it out until a month or so ago. I guess the love you have for her just spills over and I thought (assumed) she was your grandmother. I supposed that’s just evidence of how important she is to you.

    So sorry to hear she’s not well. Much love and prayers for Granny and for you.

    Sending get well wishes for Granny.

    I think you should catalog — there is always a sense of accomplishment after doing that. Or knit a bit. I am hoping that your dryer is fixed already.

  12. Samantha Says:

    Katy, I will be thinking of Granny and sending well wishes her way. I hope your dryer gets fixed soon.

  13. margene Says:

    For some reason I didn’t even see this post. My prayers are with Granny and you, too!

  14. Anita Says:

    Much love to Granny–and enjoy your blog vacation, no matter how long it goes! You’ll be missed–I know I’ve been a spotty poster, but I thank you for sharing so much of your life! Hugs to you and your family!

  15. Siri Says:

    We’ll still be here when/if you’re ready to return to it, so enjoy your blog-free time. Take care of the things at hand. Best wishes for Granny’s recovery.

  16. caroline Says:

    Will miss you, but taking care of yourself is the most important thing. All the best to you, the kidlets, your mom and of course, Granny.

  17. Sharon Says:

    Hey Lady, take care of yourself. We’ll all be hanging around when you get back (unless WE take breaks too! 🙂

  18. Orli Says:

    What does: “She is so full of piss and vinegar ” this expression mean? sarcasm perhaps?
    For the Olympics I think you should stick to a scarf…because a whole mans sweater is a bit of a chalenge I think not to mention St. Bridgte which is looking lovely by the way.
    For Granny: Get Well Soon.

  19. Orli Says:

    about your last post. I’ll miss you. I hope you’ll stay in touch via email, though you’ll see it’s hard to stay away from blogging and yes, I’d really love to see the contruction process and final result. it’s different than in Israel where homes are made of stone.
