OMG!!! me too! I kept seeing 'contraception'!!!
(sorry ekgheiy )

And, don't you know, I even know better now, but STILL everytime I scroll by this thread, I keep seeing CONTRACEPTION!!

There's a store sign downtown that says SHIMP OPTICAL, but I swear, everytime I drive by it, I see SHRIMP OPTICAL....maybe it's a sign that I need to get my eyes checked..."If you can't read this sign correctly, please stop in for an eye examination...no, really, please do...honest, there's no R in our name..."

well ek, at least you know where all of our head are, so it's really not that surprising...

I was going to ask about this...I received a bag full of some old yarn from one of my neighbors (it belonged to his gma, who passed away a few years ago.) There were a bunch of dpns, and one of these things. I had no idea what it was for, and I was about to post a picture of it.


....umm....I'm still not sure what it's used for, though.

What's hairpin lace? I need a better pic of it...hmm...do you use it as a panel in afghans? It just looks like shoelace to me. :thinking:
