The Skinny Knitter

What a weekend....

Is there anything better than getting to play with yarn and then be rewarded with yarn? Especially when you get to do so with two very fun, nice, cool people. I met Karma & Fulay at Little Knits on Saturday to help organize yarn. Okay, okay, I confess....there was a lot of yarn fondling & oogling involved, but we did accomplish some organization.

And by going and involving myself in yarn porn I was able to sneak away from Mr. Pukey. The big dentist trip is over, and thank god. When he finally woke up, he looked up at me with those big brown eyes and said

"But mom, they forgot to give me my free toothbrush."

And then he proceded to puke for the next 2 days.

Anyone who knows me knows I don't do puke. Or blood. Or any bodily fluids. I faint, freak out, run, scream, and hide. Just the qualities you're looking for in a mom, right?

In fact, last year I was cutting up tortillas, the knife slipped, and I saw blood. Knowing myself I didn't dare peek & see how bad it was, I just shoved a paper towel around it. Drake was, of course, running around half naked so I made him throw some clothes on, and off we went to urgent care.

I still wonder how much they talked about me after I left....I ran in with a bloody paper towel hanging off my finger, holding my whole arm behind me so I couldn't see it, and Drake managed when putting his shorts on to twist the front all the way to his side, so it looked like he put both legs in one hole. And I might have been just a bit hysterical.

They put me in a room and the doctor came in to take a look. I could tell she was trying not to laugh at me once she saw the cut & had cleaned it out. She slapped a bandaid on me and told me it was just a nick, I'd be fine.

Oh, I'm motherhood material all right.

This week I've got to work on getting my projects straightened out and decide what exactly I'm going to bring on The Car Ride. How much can I get done in 22 hours? And 3 days of sitting around listening to music? 5 socks? A sweater?

    Oh Sam, you make me laugh. Glad to hear Drake is feeling better, sorry about the puking. Enjoy that car ride and gets lots of knitting done

    You're a good storyteller! I can just imagine you running into the hospital with your arm behind your back and your little boy alongside... heh heh!! Can't wait to hear about what projects you bring with you, and then see what you've made when you get back. :)

    OMG! That's quite the adventure! I'm glad to hear Drake is doing better. It was great meeting you at Little Knits. It's funny...I just overheard you say "Drake" and I knew just who you were (even though I couldn't remember your name.) :)
