OT:

a co-worker/former boss used to work with Jim Henson.
They both did some projects for Disney
The tales he tells of Jim and Kermit are incredible....

See...that is a dream I could have...I would love to work with Jim Hensons muppet shop...however there are two problems with that dream...

I am lazy and am not willing to move to London, New York or California to work for it...and more importantly I lack the time machine to be able to go back and work for the man while he was alive!!

*sigh* Oh well...I did meet someone who worked on Fraggle Rock, which was cool....but....It was a short meeting..it is really cool you have that 2nd degree of separation thing going on...

no need for apoligies for being silly...
we need all the silly we can get..


I want to know how Crycket feels about her work now? Is it smoother and easy to work? are things falling into place better? I, by far, wanted this to be frustrating for you...i know it was yesterday, but how about now?
( waiting for a picture)

AMAZING how one stitch can throw the whole thing off.

Also, I seem to have lost dimpledapple....?

Yes...far less frustraiting than yesterday! Going much smoother...and I was even able to work out two of my problems without having to tear back....

I might have photos tonight...but more likely tomorrow...I still need to get that 19th row done, and my back could use a bit of a rest...

"I, by far, wanted this to be frustrating for you..."??!!?? Now I see how you operate!!!

Knit a row, check back, tend to my city (yes I am playing Sim City)
Knit a row, check back, tend to my city, check on my farmville game...wash rinse repeat. Except for the one time I went to spray my stinging nettle with Round up....
