The Triumphant Return to Knitting

Well, it's only been since Sunday night, but for me that's a long time! I don't know if I mentioned the obnoxious car trouble I had last week, but let's just say it involved begging rides home from coworkers. Believe it or not, we had a little reprise of that situation today, when the same thing broke, presumably from the work of mechanics who are incompetent, clueless, or smoking too much crack. The Hubbo insists all is now well, but I'll make that decision next week.
Anyway, tonight I start work on the second project for Creative Knitting. It's little (for their fast project July issue) so it won't take long. That's nice since I also want to finish the other 2 (now it's 2) projects for SWTC before I go to Louisville Nov. 9 for the NAGC conference with the girls from work. The rest of the week so far I have spent on my other favorite thing (no, not work!)-- tap. The Hubbo got me a nice big sheet of plywood to put under my porta-floor (I love this thing) so it won't wobble on the carpet and I can leave it out all the time. We're doing "Bye Bye Blackbird" from Fosse for this semester's performance. So far, so good. I'm even getting dangerously close to justifying a 4th pair of tap shoes (I made the mistake of checking out Discount Dance Supply last night and saw some cool ones I think I need:

Of course, I'd want them in black. I know, I don't need 4 pairs of tap shoes, I don't even need 3. You're talking to someone with over 200 sets of knitting needles here! (Yes, I love to buy things.)
Okay, now I'm rambling. Time to put Emma to bed and then to get out the new SWTC Amerah to knit my project and use this computer for its more practical function, showing DVDs.

I'm just glad to know that there are others out there that need multibples of things as much as I do. "Well, I could use the 10" long size needles, but I would rather do it with 6" as it would be more appropriate. . . . Isn't that set of ebony needles just gorgeous, who care if I have 5 other pairs of size 8 needles, I don't have those!" etc, etc, etc,

Sound familiar????
