Ok then

I got my little IngenuiTEA pot yesterday and so far I love the green pekoe, love the hojicha, don't love the sencha so much. It has a slight soapy taste that I'm not grooving on, or maybe it's following my cereal-and-soy-milk breakfast that is the problem. Either way, so far this tea is GOOD. The teapot is PRECIOUS. I am loving this and planning to get it for everyone for Christmas. Ha!

Kirsten figured out a handy-dandy way to keep track of those decreases on the arch-shaped sock pattern. Y'all, I puzzled and puzzled over this, and she just worked it out! Put a marker AFTER the first (k2tog) shaping decrease, and another marker BEFORE the second (skpo) shaping decrease. When you knit the decrease round, you knit to 2 sts before marker, k2tog, sm, do the make ones and knits and then knit to the 2nd marker, slip the marker and skpo the next 2 stitches.

Kirsten is BRILLIANT.

Now, y'all, I hope you read Crazy Aunt Purl? Go read today's entry. Because I was at MTSU, the same college, when this happened, and I remember it happening, and y'all...well, go read the story. This is a blast from my college past that has brought me endless delight this morning.

Or maybe it is the tea.
