Back to the Salt Mines...

Saturday, February 14, 2009

...or, as the Russians say, "Back to our sheep." Comes from an old Soviet movie, about two guys who are arguing in court about a flock of sheep. They keep getting sidetracked into all kinds of derogatory comments on the government, and periodically the judge bangs his gavel and shouts, "Back to our sheep!" It's entered everyday language as a way of saying, "back to business."

I haven't done too much with SparkPeople this past week -- too much going on at work, and when my husband works from home, as he did this past week, I don't get access to the computer. Nevertheless, I have managed to drop two more pounds!! emoticon (We need an emoticon for "happy dancing"!)

Wanted to let my SparkPals know that the wool for my head scarf arrived yesterday, and I have already knitted two inches on it. I'm doing it in a Feather-and-Fan lace pattern, fingering-weight yarn on Size 5 needles -- unfortunately, the yarn isn't as peachy as it looked in the catalogue, more of an orange fading in and out of pink (ewww), but it's still wonderful to work with, and it should go with *most* of my clothes, anyway. I don't think I can add links to this blog, but if you look up Patternworks and then look for Melody yarns, you should see it in among the more staid colors.

OK, now tell me this. How is it that there are still people who think that if you're fat, you must overeat, but are also aware that you are a needleworker? Does it not occur to these boobs that, hel-LO, if your hands are busy with wool or embroidery floss, THEY CAN'T BE STUFFING YOUR FACE FOR YOU?!?!?! Myself, I think it has to do with a lack of exercise, which is another issue. But if you'd rather stitch than eat, how can you be overeating???
