Be Still My Heart!


The always awesome Michelle has started the best KAL ever. Have I mentioned I don't watch TV much at all? Well, that has changed, all because of one thoughtful friend/employee/dog & house sitter. He plopped Season 1 on my desk and said, "Watch it. You'll love it." As fate would have it, we stopped in to visit his father's duty crew at the firehouse a few days later - on a Tuesday night - and stayed riveted to the television for an hour. We devoured the first three seasons just in time. You're on notice - don't expect any contact from me on Tuesdays from 9-10 Eastern. (I do want a Tivo though; we became accustomed to the commercial-free version.)
I also feel obliged to note that everyone in the free world loves The Needle Lady, except me. Even Anne loved it. I did note they're polite enough and they have a selection of primo fibers. Maybe I'm just too picky. Dunno. I think it's because I am a part of the fourth generation of a family business that I have exacting ideas about how my patronage should be valued. I might get over myself (the Knight says his best friend is House and I am what would happen if House and Cuddy [my fav!] had a child) if places like The Loopy Ewe and Carodan didn't lead me to believe that my expectations are very realistic.
Also, swing by and visit Blume's Accessories. Like all of the Etsy folk I know, Mary will also treat you right. She's just getting started, so check in often.
I think the Monkeys will be a completed pair tonight too. Then I can ship that and my tea pal's package out tomorrow!

One more thing we have in common-I love House!! We haven't missed a single one and watch any reruns we can find. Hugh Laurie is just wonderful. I loved him when he did the British show "Bertie and Wooster." Hilarious.

Someone needs to start a "24 Along" or a "Ghost Whisperer Along"... and there has got to be some Desperate Housewives knitting thing out there... anyone???

I've never watched the past episodes of House. I only catch the reruns every now and then, but they're sooo good!

Nifty little sock bag down below, by the way!

I DO love house, but at the moment I'm going to eventually find the first two discs of ugly betty I've had for like 10 years from Netflix and watch those lol

Nichole,

When 24 starts up, I'm all over that KAL too! ;-) I'll be the KAL leader girl! :-) 24 and House are my 2 all time favorite shows... I'm actually finally outgrowing Survivor I think...
