Project Spectrum beginnings
Happy beginning of Project Spectrum! Yesterday on the way to a waterpark hotel with the kids, I cast on my Firebird Socks That Rock for some Stalkers from Yarn Ball Boogie. I love the pattern, but of course, hind sight being what it is, I think should have cast on with a semi-solid. Like some Wollmeise Wilder Mohn perhaps? But in the name of the self proclaimed "too much work to frog" movement - I shall go forth. I think the cables still do pop a bit and the fit is great, despite my early reservations.
Then continuing on the spectrum theme (reds, pinks, oranges...) - I present Twizzlers, well not just Twizzlers, specifically the pull and peel variety. Food of the Gods. Easily up there with fountain soda, for me personally.
Alas, I have decided I need to give them up for lent. Kwik Trip had this evil "buy one get one" plot and now, my swimsuit seemed a bit snug in the middle at our watertpark adventure - so either I cut back on the Twizzlers and refocus my "lifestyle" or I need to buy a bigger swim suit, for now I'll try the former. But look what Jillian over at Project Runway can do with Twizzlers...
Maybe she could fashion me a new swim suit using just Twizzlers? You know, kill two birds? No, I would start nibbling and we all know how that would go.
Speaking of waterparks and snug fitting swimming suits - egads, what kind of non-relaxing adventure was that? The best intentions. I looked around at other parents - wondering is it me? But no, as I suspected - most parents looked pretty tired and frustrated, in need of a stiff drink...good grief. On the bright side, the kids had fun and were rather oblivious to the thoughts running through my noggin. Glad to be home. And the the weatherman utters 9-12" of snow...ugh.
