Swallowtail Fini

I now can tell you from experience that going to the ER (when you aren’t the patient) is wonderful for knitting progress. I was back at the ER this evening again since my sister was in pain again so from 6.30pm until 11pm I got to knit. Thankfully I was back in her room tonight instead of taking my chances with the crazies for a second night. We got to watch The Office and Scrubs and some new Andy Richter show while waiting for tests and doctors and the pain meds that never showed up.

They found something called a dermoid cyst which completely skeeved me out when the doctor described it. I mean hair?!? sometimes teeth!?!?! The good thing is they said it wasn’t uncommon and it should be an easy outpatient thing. For some reason her body really likes growing things that don’t belong there but I won’t go into her medical history here.

Back to the knitting. I got 4 whole hours to devote to finishing up swallowtail and boy am I glad it is done. I actually really liked the pattern and it was a fun and easy knit but I was ready for it to end. I still need to weave in the ends but I didn’t want to wait to block. At 12.27am it was officially blocked and drying.

Time for sleep. Better pics of Swallowtail to come.


So I got this cool little email from Paypal offering me a $15 rebate on any order over $30 until the end of March (sorry invite only apparently). And since I am never one to pass up a good sale I hopped online to check out some online fibery stores that use Paypal. I have it down to two I think.

My first option is buying more roving. Susan’s Spinning Bunny has the multicolored roving that I am having so much fun with right now at a good price. And roving doesn’t break the yarn diet. However a LYS carries the same roving at very similar prices and I kind of prefer to support local businesses when I can.

Second option is saying screw the yarn diet and ordering yarn from Sarah’s Yarns. I bought a surplice sweater pattern a little while ago so I can finally knit myself a sweater and she has some JaggerSpun yarns that I can’t get locally that I am eyeing.

What should I do?
