Amazing Threads - OOPS Blast Update Shibui & Dan Doh KALs, Easy Baby Knits, KALS and New Classes
Last evening I sent the blast and the server did not hold any changes... So here is a complete update!
I am spending the week in New Jersey with my east coast grandbabies while their parents are on vacation. OK get ready to laugh.
Day1: I take both kids to McDonalds to play and eat.
Austin (5) goes up into the maze and Avery (20 months) follows him part of the way and then refuses to come down the maze to a slide or come back out. Of course Nona is panicking by now! So without any other options, I climb up into the maze and get my little sweetheart! All the while thinking what if I have to tell my daughter that the Fire Department had to come and get us out! Thank goodness I didn't have to go that far!
DAY 2: Got lost trying to get to the ice cream shop. Mostly Uneventful except for a spilled slushy!
Day 3: The baby monitor quit working. Tried to reset it many times.
I pull up manual on my phone as cannot print them out. Still no luck. Call the neighbor with children. She cannot get it going either. Drive 15 miles to a Babies R Us store. After many mis-turns, a 20 minute ride takes 40. None of the staff who work there have any idea on how to program it or get it working. Monitor is not in warranty. When all else fails, we called the manufacturer. Very nice customer service representative at Summer patiently helps me reprogram the monitor to pair with both cameras!
Thank goodness for stores with good customer service and a willingness to help. Something you cannot get on the INTERNET~ the human factor!
Andrea Mowry has designed Free Your Fade which only requires 3 skeins of fingering weight yarn or those not wanting to knit the 7 skein Find Your Fade! Its really lovely!
PLUS we have a huge wall of Baah La Jolla that will provide great inspiration for a Find or Free Your FADE. Stop in and one of the staff will be happy to provide you a color consult! Bring in a skein or 2 from your stash and we can help you find a match!
