No Knitting News or Content

The needles got a rest last night. We went out to dinner with my sister and brother-in-law. They are leaving in a few days for London for an entire month.... lucky them. Hopefully they will arrive in time for the birth of their third grandchild and stay a few weeks after to help out. Before we left the restaurant I managed to spill an entire glass of red wine on my white aran sweater that I bought in Ireland a few years ago. I'm sick about it. SICK. I took it to the cleaners and the counter person just gave me a sad look. CRAP.

So today I arranged for a realtor to meet with my daughter and son-in-law to get their house on the market. Hopefully it will sell quickly. Being pregnant, my daughter is so emotional. She had a little mini breakdown when it finally hit her that they were going to sell the house she loves and finally had decorated and fixed up just the way she wanted it. She will hate to leave that house. They worked hard to get it as cute as it is. Anyone in Wilmington, DE.... go check it out!!! It's in the Triangle Neighborhood.

Okay... so here's a little knitting content. Since I ruined my aran sweater, I think I'll scrap the "Rogue" idea and make an aran cardigan with my irish yarn. I'll get a lot more wear out of it than I would Rogue. I wear dress clothes 95% of the time including weekends anyway so Rogue would not have gotten much wear. Yep, that's what I'm going to do. So the hunt for a good aran cardigan pattern is on. Surely with all my aran books I'll be able to find something.

No club soda magic? :(

I'm all for the Oxy Clean. Hey, if it's ruined anyways? It removed some mildew stains for me. Just let it soak.

And the manageable lengths? Weave in your ends as you go. A bit fiddley while you're knitting, but when you're done, you're done. Here's instructions w/ photos:
