You Go Girl!

My daughter called me yesterday, absolutely livid.  She had ordered a laptop from Dell for my grandson for Christmas and told them to send it to me.  Kevin gets home from school a lot earlier than she does and he is very nosy.  She knew she couldn’t count on John to be home in time.  He has no sense of time when he’s out on a job.  A few days ago, she called to make sure there wouldn’t be any screw-ups.  Well.  It never showed up here, but it did there.  To make matters worse, there was a picture of it on the side of the box.  She was going to call today and give them a piece of her mind and she expects to get something out of it.  Knowing her, I’m sure she will.  That’s my girl!

I’ve been working on Latvian socks.  I was worried I wouldn’t be able to get them over my heel so I got out a circular needle and slipped the stitches on it.   I got them on.  Hooray.  I hate to take stuff apart.  I really like working this pattern.  It moves right along.  I’ll probably get to the heel tonight.

Here are the needles I’m using.  I love them.  I got them at Stitches.  I had read about them, didn’t want to spend the money without trying them.  They are lightest metal needles that I have encountered.  I usually only use wooden double pointed needles.  Each needle is blunt at one end and pointed at the other and they have four inch lengths.  These work.

Last, but not least, I got a Christmas present today.  Last week, Doug had gotten me Rigoletto on CD.  I had the records at the other house.  When I went to put it on the CD  part didn’t work.  Well, he found a Sony mini-stereo and it came today.  He set it up rather than wrap it up.  When I put on the CD and Luciano started his aria, I started to cry.  I have heard him in concert twice and I am still overwhelmed by his perfect voice.  I am surprised that the neighbors didn’t complain.  I had the speakers on max.
