First of all, many thanks yous for your comments on the baby blanket. I’m not very good at answering comments individually unless there’s a specific question to answer, so a group shout out, Thank You!!
I may not be posting much but I am knitting much. Here we have a finished back in the Brooks Farm our Play. Isn’t it scrumptious?? The colors, the shaping!

Of course you’re wondering what is is, aren’t you? I think that I will keep that a surprise a little while longer.
There is also sockage going on, much of it knit yesterday on the way to my brother’s dental office (yes, he’s my dentist) and in the chair waiting for the Novacaine to take effect.

I know you can’t really see any detail on it now but that’s OK, it’s a super secret sock. Anyway, dental work. Yeah, my brother has determined after drilling so much my brain was shaken loose that I need my very first root canal. I guess I should be lucky that I hit 40 never having needed one. Bad news is (what, that wasn’t bad enough?) that he doesn’t do them, and I have no dental insurance.
Can you say “Broke” any louder?

How do you like the Brooks Farm Four Play? I have their Primero and Duet, but am toying around with the next purchase being of the non-mohair content variety.

This piece of a sweater — is it safe to assume that it’s the back? — is so intriguing… I *love* the way the shaping is done at a princess seam location instead of at the side seams. Very tailored looking. Can’t wait to hear more.

And may I offer my condolences on the need for a root canal? Maybe you can find an endodontist with cold feet who’d be up for a barter situation? :)

the brooks farm is lovely! i have some of that four play too. how many skeins did it take to do that back? i’m curious as to far this yarn will go.

you tease, you.

Do you want my dentists number? To check how much his root canals are? I can vouch for his dentistry.

Ah, yes: the colors, the shaping… quite lovely.

The Brooks Farm yarn has knitted into something gorgeous. Really beautiful. Ouch on the dental stuff.

Very beautiful sweater piece! Can’t wait to see more.

Please give details about the pretty sock yarn when it’s not so super secret?

Ouch, Jackie. Just….ouch.

That is one sexy sexy shape job!

you could always do what I did… for the same price of the root canal in the US you can fly (I was already there but same deal) to Norway (one of the cheap Iceland Air flights can be 250$ from NYC) and have it done there. Even adding up all the costs (flight, stay and then the 200$ for the root canal) I’d bet it would be cheaper than in the US.

Sorry… but the positive bit… they really aren’t as big of a deal as they have been made out to be. Jaw will be a bit sore but really no worse than a LONG filling.

Hope freelance flys your way soon!
