Cast your eyes over to the left sidebar and see the button that Beth made for me! Awww, that's so sweet! Thanks, Beth!
I spent most of my knitting time yesterday working on a Dale of Norway baby sweater. It's garter stitch -- easy-peasy, right? So how come I keep finding bogus single stitches that are just WRONG, 16 rows down in the knitting???? Grrrr... it's fairly fine gauge garter st that seems to slip of the sharp ends of the needles pretty easily. I must be remounting a stitch incorrectly or something. I did try to ladder down and fix it, but honestly, in fine gauge garter st, it's easier just to rip and re-do. But I've had to do that 3 times now. I know, I know -- watch what I'm doing and check more frequently. I just didn't know garter st was so fraught with peril.
Anyway, it looks like I may get to teach my first beginning knitting class tonight. Wish me luck!

Bouncer seems to be feeling better. I spent all day at my home yesterday, and I took him with me when I made my rounds. Thanks for all the good wishes for him!

Have you ever had your at-home hair color come out not quite like you expected? I think the worst one I had was the hair color that gave me unintended purple highlights. (I lost the right side mirror off my car because of that -- don't ask.) The color I put on my hair yesterday may be a fairly close second, though. It's much darker than I intended it to be. Dear Robert says I remind him of Evil Willow (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), only without the blue veins.
Also, I hasten to add, without the youth, cuteness and leather bustier. :)
