Actually, Shawn had bought me the Kitchen Aid Mixer back in September and I’ve ♥’d it every day since! But it’s the attachment that I got for my birthday: an Ice Cream Maker. I mean, who doesn’t LOVE ice cream. Homemade no less! I’m hoping to try it out tonight after we go to the store and hopefully remember to buy the cream.
I had my Dr. appointment yesterday as well. (Great present huh?) Actually it was good. It took about 15 minutes. My glucose test came out perfect this time! YAY! I was starting to worry that it wouldn’t since the first test came out so high. But I passed “with flying colors”. Everything else is fine. Seven weeks to go! I’m excited. I want to see our little girl so much. But I have my fears too. Some rational. Some not. It’s weird what children can do to you huh?
After my appt. Shawn took me and Jem to Claim Jumper for dinner. YUM! I ordered a Chicken Pot Pie which was delicious. Sooo delicious that I ate, nearly, the whole thing and didn’t have room for dessert. Shawn promised we could stop by Cold Stone’s for dessert tonight!
I also had a little celebration for Scarlett. It was a year ago that I got her from the shelter for my birthday present. So we stopped by the pet store and picked up a little something:
Hardly little I know. The bone was almost as big as her. She’s had it since Sunday night and already she’s cracked the knee joint off. The proof is on my carpet!
Shawn and I didn’t do much yesterday. Just hung out with each other. I also had a chance to start a gauge swatch for the “Knitty Gritty” yarn. This was done on US 3 needles. I’m taking everyone’s advice and making socks. I doubt they will fit me, (which is ok because I have another skein), but maybe they will fit somebody. I hope they will fit somebody. I really don’t care who!
I have to end this post with a question: How will I get the yarn to stripe? Is there some kind of sock knitter’s secret to make stripes or forms work? If so, can you share them? Wish me luck! I’m gonna need it. A lot of it.
