I'm a wife, mom, and doctor. I'm occasionally inappropriate, frequently odd, but not weird yet....I don't think. Bugs Bunny said it best: "It is to laugh."

Alas, I won't be pulling off Sheila's look until I find some boots that really fit...
but I think THIS will work! I'm going for Olivia Newton-John at the end of Grease, but she's gotten a job in an office - HA!
And see this?
This is a 4-stitch cable pattern from my book, but it's a little small to be a rag. I made a boo-boo about halfway up. You definitely can't set a cable pattern down and go to bed without marking where you left off.
And I finished the sweater front, but I wanted to make long sleeves instead of 3/4 sleeves, so I checked Lion Brand for similar patterns I might substitute a long sleeve from, and guess what? They have another sweater with supposedly long sleeves, and it's the EXACT SAME pattern as mine! It's called something different and has a different number - what's up with that?! Wouldn't you be upset when you finished that, thinking you're making a regular sweater? I emailed them and am awaiting a reply, otherwise I'll have to measure and alter the pattern, and that will only end badly.
But that'll have to wait a bit because now I've got to work on THIS:
All it took was a little encouragement from Pam and Becky (thanks guys!), and I was off to Joann! Guess I better learn how to sew in boning...and what underlining is all about. We now pause for homemade potato chips from Dean - yum.
