Well, I got the new Jo Sharp pattern book and I am a bit dissapointed. The patterns are cute enough, but they are all done in the flat. I used to especially like Jo Sharp because her patterns were cute, but also cleverly constructed. Now, they're just like everone else's...lame.
I also got Jackie 2 skeins of the Plymouth stuff that's dyed like the Noro. It's about half the price, and at least in the skein looks the same. She's been making a Math Geek (from the knitting page a day calendar) scarf in a blue, and it doesn't show off the multidirectional triangles as well as the fake Noro will.
On the family front, Pig 1 has been lucky enough to grow a Franken-tooth. He's got the family curse of his first adult tooth popping up behind his baby teeth
