Not much knitting news.....

I did work on Kepler last night. I finished the second sleeve band and started the first waist band. I found a few mistakes in the knitting but no one but me would ever know they are there, and since I'm NOT a total perfectionist (unlike most Virgos), they're stayin there.

I printed out my Mapquest directions to Pittsburgh Mills today. It's exactly 100 miles and should take 2 hours. I'll leave way early and check out the Galleria. Cate has decided to go back to Slippery Rock a day early so her Dad will take her Saturday and I won't be combining that chore with this trip. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for good weather.

My iron died this morning so I'm a little wrinkly today. We have the bad habit of "ironing as you go" instead of doing ironing in combination with the laundry. I hang everything up out of the dryer but I don't iron it first. I remember my mother standing for hours on the weekends ironing. No way Jose. A good 5 minutes every morning and I'm good to go. Unless the iron breaks... like it did this morning. I was sure we had a spare. I'm looking everywhere and never did find it. But my husband was in a lot worse shape than me. He had an important meeting and nothing to wear that even remotely resembled a pressed appearance. I got out of there before I had to watch him walk out the door in that condition. Some wife I am. I guess I'll be making a stop at K-Mart or Target at lunch time. (Sorry... won't do WalMart. Just shoot me.)

No knitting tonight... dinner with my sister and a friend. It's always a good time. This is my way of warning you that tomorrow's post in the knitting blog is going to be just as boring as today's.

I don't like ironing, so I am a *huge* fan of wrinkle-free dress shirts and pants for my husband!

eeewww! I hate to iron. The only things I iron on a regular basis are my husbands uniforms. Which reminds me I have to iron one today. I was a bad wife and did not iron yesterday. S'ok though my husband is way better at ironing than I am. If we have to go somewhere that requires nicely pressed clothing, he does the ironing!
