So, thanks everyone for offering your support and commiseration today, and especially for refraining from unwanted assvice. Really, I’m fine with who I am and where I am in my body. Yes, I would love to have my pre-pregnancy body back. Yes, I’m going to keep moving in the right direction. There’s a lot more to the picture than what I’m telling you, but it’s all good.
I got a bunch of good feedback from the right people about the sock class pattern thing. First, two people from the store let me know that my manager talked to Cookie and Amy at TNNA and got thier approval for the class. Second, I got a very nice e-mail back from Cookie herself saying that there was no problem. So it’s all good. No worries.
Cute pictures always make me feel better…
Sophie and I hung out in the locker room while Julie was swimming this morning. She loved opening the lockers then banging on the bottom of them to make lots of noise. Also, it meant that I got to sit in the corner and knit on Baudelaire for a bit. I’m up to the gusset, and I’m holding off on it till after the first class.
This afternoon we spent some time in the back yard as usual. I turned the hose on for Julie and let her go to town. A trickle of water from the hose is good for at least an hours’ worth of entertainment.
Sophie got in on the action too. We were all wet and covered in sand by the time Joe got home, but at least we had some fun.
Answering some mail…
SwissKnits wants to know about the stockinette sock I was knitting last night. Yep, that’s some that I dyed up myself. It’s one of the skeins that I did during the class I took at Yarnover, so it’s professional dyes that are toxic, but I can achieve the same effect with the food dyes at home. It is a short-row heel – just your basic toe-up wrap-and-turn version. I use my own pattern, although at this point it’s long-memorized so I never actually look at a pattern.
Damn! Sophie’s awake. Goin’ to bed. More tomorrow.
