Will this week every end?

I decided to start knitting on the bus again this morning since the flair jacket is a little smaller and lighter than the skirt had been these last few weeks. I waited and waited this morning for a bus and god rewarded my patience with a totally empty bus stopping at my stop. I got a single seat and started knitting. I was having a simply marvelous morning commute till about 2 stops from my office when the cord of my knit picks options came right out AGAIN! I had fixed the other end before starting the jacket and now the good end is broken. Somehow I managed to save my stitches but this was just a little too much excitement for me especially before coffee. So after a very long day of work I have to fix my option again before I can knit anymore. I'm tempted to run out and buy some addis and just say fuck the option but I love them too much to give up on them now.

Oh and I learned today that STP is getting back together, pretty sweet.

And what's this about MagKnits being down? I must investigate...

Hey (Maria from the UES Knitting Group, I came with Sarah) - I was concerned with MagKnits being down too - if you go to the main page, it gives you info on why the site closed. Such a bummer really - I just printed a pattern from there two days ago, so in away just in the nick of time (need to finish a christening blanket by April 27!).

Alyssa, you can call Knit Picks. I only have 1 set of Options, the size 4, and mine were always coming unscrewed. I had bought them quite awhile ago, but regardless, Knit Picks sent out replacements. I didn't have to mail anything back.

What a pain with the knitpicks needle. I like the bag your mum made you!

The skirt is beautiful - you did an amazing job!

And please - call KnitPicks asap - enough is enough with the "quick fixes" you've been doing my friend
