Don't you just....

I am a simple woman. I don't ask for much in life. I like buses to arrive on time, I am truly grateful for the snooze button on my alarm clock, my oven really is self cleaning . So tell me, why can't yarn manufacturer's make hanks or skeins (or what ever the 'in' word is for a ball of yarn) without joining bits and pieces of yarn together - especially when I'm in the middle of a row. I know I join an endless line of irate knitters ranting about useless joins in yarn and I'm sure they have put it far more gracefully and eloquently than I (or is it me?) For now my literacy level only allows me to say - IT SUCKS - Big time!!
While I'm in rant mode - who sent the noisy fly to bug me last night? All I wanted was a quiet veg out night on the couch with my knitting and Grey's Anatomy. But no. I had to spend the evening trying to coax the beast out of the window because I couldn't kill it (we only kill moths!!) Did it want to go into the great outdoors? The word no just doesn't do justice to the determination of the fly to ruin my night. Grey's Anatomy was relagated to mute (and of course it was the last in the series) as I earnestly tried to locate the origin of the loud buzzing and fan the fly out of the house. My resolve to be kind to all of mother natures' creatures was sorely tested last night. I know that somehow, today I am a stronger person for it and that a great lesson has been learned - right?

Oh oh oh, I am so with you. It drives me insane, I recently experienced it with Debbie Bliss silk.

Nice to see you blogging again.
