While the sleeve dilemma on St. Brigid is pondered, I have been plugging along on a couple of other projects. The Superior yarn is an absolute delight to knit with. However, the pattern I am using–not so much. I have discovered a few errors but Takhi has only confirmed one. There is no chart and I find reading the pattern to be murder. Consequently, I picked up a
sock. Not just any sock–a huge, worsted weight sock in Knitaly for my brother’s 5oth birthday. He is a former Navy Seal–a real tough guy who likes to hunt and fish. It’s a quick knit but I am using up yarn pretty quickly. I am not sure about the yarn amounts listed in Ann Budd’s Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns. Granny says she has more.
Gracie and I went to see Phantom of the Opera on Saturday. It was very good and a wonderful day with Gracie. However, the family behind us–older couple with a 4 or 5 year old–spoke, sang and ate during the show. I was horrified. Someone’s cell phone even went off towards the end and you could see the reaction on the actors face. Horrible.
Owen’s last day is tomorrow. We have his team meeting today. I am a bit apprehensive about programming plans for Owen as they are planning more verbal imitation programs. He hates VI programs. There is nothing worse in his book then being asked to say "the" 20 times. Sigh. He is leaving off final consonants–as he always has and they want him to do better. I understand there is a difference between bow and boat. But in the context of a sentence like, "I swam to the boat," I think the listener can comprehend Owen’s meaning. We shall see. His Dyna went off the table and is in need of repair. I am sure he is looking forward to his nearly two weeks off.
