News Front

On the Home News Front, Mr. Bettis is up to his old tricks. He knocked another hole in the fence and Lil' Miss Gypsy was wandering in the driveway. My parents saw her on their way home from running errands and stopped. Mr. Bettis had his nose peeking out of the hole. Needless to say this is another chore added to the "loyal subject's" list today.

On the Knitting News Front, Lil' Miss Teapot is getting a brand new sweater for Fall. It will be a nice pumpkin orange and olive green.
Come on now, you know you want to sing the "I'm a Little Teapot song" with me. I was "dancing" with the teapot and singing the song to the daughter. She just rolls her eyes and laughs. It's fun to joke with a teen and threaten to "perform" in front of her friends. Trust me, I wouldn't really do that .......or would I? LOL

One of my dear friends placed a Knit Picks order and ordered this book for me. I have been wanting this book for quite awhile. It is a knitting history book and I'm enjoying every bit of it. If you want to read about the history of knitting in America. This is the book to own.

p.s. When life hands you rotten apples (and I have a few of them, doesn't everyone?), LAUGH! It really is the best medicine:).

I could see you performing the Teapot song in front of teenage friends! LOL

The socks look lovely!

You know, I saw a pattern on Ravelry for a Pumpkin Teapot Cozy. :)

Glad to hear you're holding up under all the strain. ;-) And tell Mr. Bettis to look ashamed. Lil' Miss Gypsy believed him when he said there were dog treats out in the road. SNOL

Love teasing teens. My fav was the time one of the groups my daughter loved redid the George Michael song Faith. She exclaimed it the best song ever and mom you have to hear this it just came out today .... only to have me start to sing along with it.

Hope your leg feels better soon.

I love that song! Weee!!

Mr Bettis is too clever for his own good. Like Sissy, he must learn the fine art of napping while the humans are away...

Thanks for the earworm, now I will be singing the teapot song all night.
Don't you think performing for the teen's friends is the ultimate payback for just about anything

Glad you were able to get to the knitting group and enjoy yourself.
