Tuesday night knitting

Look at how cute this is. The wonderful Criquette sent me a Pay it Forward package. It was a little overdue but it came at the perfect time for me. I love that button. It is so me. The package also had a fridge magnet, very cool tin with mints and she sent the rest of the skein. I love this yarn. If you can't tell it is the Calorimetry
I would love it if one of you would tell me exactly how to pronounce that word.

I have been on a dishcloth kick. In the past 3 weeks or so I have made 6 cloths. Here are just a couple. These are probably going to be Christmas presents.
The bottom picture shows my Calorimetry with Tata's colossal Calorimetry. Hers is very big, I suggested it would make an interesting tube type top. I think it looks a little like lips.

On a personal note, things have been very rough the past week or so. I have not had much good to say, so I tend to get very quite. No one wants to hear my woes all the time. I start to feel like all I have to talk about is negative things, so I choose to say nothing. We take things day by day. Today was a good day. He was able to stay at school the entire day. It is going to be a long road to get meds right so he feels good on a regular basis.

I have more knitting to show you but that will wait for another day.


  1. What a great "pick-me-up"
    That package was late for a reason!

    I agree about the lips comment, what a smacker! Mine was huge too.

  2. Sorry to hear things have been rough again. Hopefully the meds will be sorted out very soon. I've been thinking of you often, and send you lots of [[[hugs]]].

  3. Negative things are part of life too. Hang in there, and know that if you want to talk, we are here to listen.

  4. we are here for you to talk - good or bad...bad is when you need people most, sometimes it's just hard to use them :( call me if you need an ear!

  5. I'm soooo glad you liked your little package! When you use your Calorimetry (I pronounce it Cal-o-rim-et-tree - don't know if that's right or not)know that I am thinking good thoughts and sending them your way.

    Great news about the boy and school. One day at a time...

  6. Sending good thoughts your way. And it does look a little like lips--that's something funny that nobody else will know while you're wearing it. Something to chuckle over. Always a good thing.

  7. Great knitting!
    I love the elephant pin!

  8. I am loving the color of that calorimetry!!!
    I was so lucky that mine didn't turn out huge, apparently it's an incredible common issue. I used Koigu Kersti for mine!


Hi,it's nice to hear from you.
Come back soon!
