Happy Thursday Everyone.
Or it would be if the Doctor & the PA (BOTH) were out of the office with the flu. So … wait, what do you mean what’s going on?
Ok. Let’s step back (*giggles* – it’ll be funny in bit) from the beginning for those who don’t know what’s going on. For those of you who do and don’t want to hear (read) the story again, just jump on down to the last bit. For those who are new to the story … ready?

204 yds/50 gr.

The bamboo gives a great feel and a luster, the wool gives a soft feeling core and the combed silk gives it sheen and strength.
I don’t know about you, but I really dislike weaving in ends. I’m lazy and when I’m finished knitting I really want to be done with a project. And also, I’m always afraid that my weaving in won’t be enough and the ends will come undone and my entire project will unravel.
What I do is probably – if I did my research – something common. Here is what I do, especially with the fluffier yarns. The join with the smooth yarns (especially bulky) is more noticeable. But depending on what you are knitting and where the join is, it might not make a difference.
You know that envelope (invitation, response card, etc.) you just ruined? Don’t throw it out. Use it as a template to make your corrections. You now know where you don’t want your text. Make your corrections and just run it through the printer a second (or even 3rd or 4th) time. Just use a different color print each time so you know to where you’ve moved your text.
In the examples below, I’ve blurred the names and address. So don’t worry, your vision hasn’t gone selectively blurry.
When printing invitations, response cards, etc. ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS over estimate how many you need and buy an extra box. It’s always best to have too many than to run short. You will ruin at least 1 when printing. If you have an unopened box you can return it (just stick the receipt in the box so you don’t loose it) or sell it (online, at a yard sales, give it to a friend, etc).

For those of you who are like me and don’t necessarily pay attention to your dye lots, this post is for you.
I never really pay too much attention to dye lot. Granted I do try to buy enough of the same dye lot to finish a project. But I usually say, if it looks the same then the dye lot isn’t too important. That can be horribly wrong.

Tickle: I’m not gonna lie to you. I don’t think anybody would’ve know under here, was down here.
“Rise ‘n Shine!” Moonshiners
11/7/12 air date
Our favorite burglar is back in the first of “The Burglar Who” books that actually has “The Burglar Who” in the title. Joining Bernie on his capers are some old faces and some new faces. Ray Kirschmann, “the best cop money could buy” is back to either arrest Bernie, or not, or maybe just get Bernie to “acquire” a fur for Mrs. Kirschmann.
We get to meet Carolyn Kaiser. Carolyn is “crowding 30, with Dutch-cut dark-brown hair and remarkably clear blue eyes. She stands five-one in high and never wears them, and she’s built like a fire hydrant, which is dangerous in her line of work.” Carolyn is a dog groomer who owns the Poodle Factory, the business two doors up from Bernie’s new business.
