Shalee, that's so great that they were willing to adjust the price. Good for you for asking! (I wouldn't have noticed or dared asking)

I got a promotion today, more money for yarn and travelling :)

Yesterday my husband and I made a little side trip to WEBS. It was overwhelming and I could have spent hours just looking. I did get some very nice sock yarn and jet another sock book. It was a nice day!

My dog curling up on my lap for all of 5 minutes. Normally not a big deal, but this adorable chocolate cocker spaniel, Sullivan, is pretty aloof and a non-cuddler most of the time. Ok, so he was probably cold too....

Thanks for posting on this "old" thread, Irish Red! I read through the whole eleven pages, and was happy and moved to see names from the past who used to post often, and now, sadly, we don't see them anymore.
I was grateful to see my own posts about my husband's illness. At the time, it was so traumatic, that now I couldn't remember which winter it happened! Now I can get things straight (sort of).
And my happy thing of the day is that we Skyped with our son and grands in Rennes, and I am smiling all the way through this evening!
Best wishes, everybody!

Anna

Life is beautiful.

Yes Anna, we remember those that have gone on, through their posts. Kleenex, please. All the wonderful and great knitters that have posted on KR, not only have helped us with our knitting but held us as we cried.

Thank you everyone.

That would make my day!

How do.

This thread is like an old pal & how sweet to have it pop up on our radar. Thanks, Irish Red.

My good news today is that we did not lose power. A ton of folks did because of the ice that had formed on the power lines & trees that came down all over the Philly area. The power was off at work until early afternoon & we did not have to go in.

We puttered, cleaned, refilled the bird feeders, shoveled, played double dominoes & each of us did work.

And no, I have not knit yet at all. After dinner I shall pick up the needles!

I'm so happy to see this thread, too! And like Marfa says, it's like an old friend. It's too early on Thursday morning for anything to have happened today, but how about yesterday? A snow/ice storm kept me at home, so I baked a little cake and enjoyed it with tea and knitting. A simple day, but sometimes those are the best.

The video of the Russian police/military choir performing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky". It's an upbeat song anyway and the two lead singers were having so much fun with it.

Love reading all your posts. Happiness is everywhere.

Today I wound a skein of sock yarn called Pansies at the Phipps given to me in a swap. Vesper sock yarn. Soon we will be seeing the boxes of spring pansies at the garden center. Thinking I'll cast on for Ann Budd's old faithful basic sock pattern to highlight the purple, orange, green self-striping goodness.

I discovered the game 'Threes' (by reading Mochimochi's knitting blog), downloaded it on my ipad, and love it!

After a terrible commute and a long work day, I came home to find that my daughter got into college today and was offered a sizable scholarship!
