Watch out!

Oh, THAT child. You know who I'm talking about... I ask her to PLEASE bring my FAVORITE #2 bamboo DPN's down from her from room (I know they're scared up there), the ones I so kindly allowed her to borrow. This is what she brings me...


Not only that... she tried to pass these off as a set of four... hmmm, one is broken, and another seems to be shorter...

That child has gotten entirely too big for her britches. She mocked my pain, and then went skipping off with my #2 circulars! AND, I could hear her taunting, "what are you gonna do about it?" Oh yes she did.... Little Miss I-can-get-away-with-whatever-I-want-in-knitting-world-because-you-need me."

Yeah? Well, I may be old, but I'm learning stuff. I can fix almost all of my own mistakes now, and I'm slowly figuring out all that voodoo-HTML stuff on my side bar. And, she was even asking ME to help her with a lace pattern the other day. What now! Hey, I even changed my own "listening to" pictures on my side bar the other day. All by myself, thank you very much. Get Me. That uppity chick will be out of a job soon, and the mother-daughter-time-space-continuum thingy will be back as it should be, with ME in control!

Be afraid, Kaity.... be very afraid...

Lynda, seeing those broken needles is paintful! BTW you said it wasn't too late - can I join your sock count along? But I don't know how to put your button on my site without stealing your bandwidth. If anyone knows let me know! Thanks!

Ouch! I think she should be a little worried. There is such a thing as knitting karma.

Don't worry, you soon will show her not to mess with your knitting stuff!!!

What now? Between the movie quotes and now using the vernacular of our children -- you need to get out more. With adults. But you're right, she should know better than to mess with the time-space continuum by now. (This coming from the 40+ year old that listened to Green Day all the way home from the airport last night to stay awake. It's too late for us, I'm afraid.)

Sniff. Those poor needles.

Ouch! Poor needles. I don't think I would be able to handle it as gracefully as you. I think you're right about that "mother-daughter-time-space-continuum thingy" it need's to be fixed soon.

Although it's great to have another knitter in your family, someone to talk yarn with and they don't think you are nuts.

Woolgatherer - you can definitely jin the sock counting! I wasn't able to access your blog, so send me an email with your blog link and let me know how many socks you've knit so far.

Also- to use the button, right click on it, and chose "save picture as" to download it to your own photohosting account.

Oh, Lynda:o(

I believe I have an extra pair of Crystal Palace #2's...They are yours if you haven't already replaced them.

***shaking my head at Kaity***

Oh No!! I bet if you took a pair out of one of her ADD projects she wouldn't notice......(hehe)

Broken needles, ouch! I hate when that happens.

I see you're listening to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. They're one of my favorite bands!

It was an Accident, people! Lol.

Oh the pain, the misery, the....broken needles!! I'm sure she will lovingly replace the broken set with a brand new non-broken-all the same size set....hehehe ;o)

Listen to you, "right click and save to your blog photoshop" or whatever. Kaity darlin', Mom's getting too smart for HER britches, eh?
I like the look of your blog - all sunny and ladybuggy!! But then I saw nothing wrong with the old look either!! I'm not a blogger but I signed up for a free 30-day trial. So, the poor thing...it's sitting out there in blogland without even a posting from it's mother. What was I thinking?!!

PS - In Kaity's defense - I've broken a couple of my bamboo dpn's before with an errant knee or hand placed on my bed - er, I mean chair & a half in the livingroom!! It happens!

Lynda, Your new blog page is looking marvelous!
So sad, a broken needle. Thanks for filling me in on sock knitting. I am warming up to the idea!

ahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! good job on the HTML stuff; i'm still figuring that one out. you look so sad about the needle. makes me wonder if (whenever i contribute to the gene pool) my kids will be knitters and i'll go through the same thing...actually makes me look forward to it because it's kinda funny, and even more so when i know i'd probably pout like a ten-year-old if one of my needles were broken.
