On a More Positive Note...

I also love Amazon... and these 2 books that came in the mail today. Actually, I've only had a chance to look through one, so today I'll show you a bit from The Eclectic Sole.

Books

For starters, I love the blue and gold sock on the cover! (Although as a Buckeye fan, I would most definitely have to choose different colors.)

Here's a peek at some of the wonderful designs inside.

I must start knitting faster!

Thanks for allowing me to vent yesterday. I'm going to take Yarnhog's advice and keep my participation in Ravelry limited to knitting related interests, lest my pesky brain get all in a dither when it could be used for knitting instead.

BTW - My root canal is scheduled for 10:30 tomorrow morning... and a good friend has kindly offered her couch (and childcare assistance) for my wimpy rear to rest on following the procedure. I have really been blessed with some wonderful friends... and I would be remiss if I didn't thank Julie again for her (hastily accepted) invitation to spend yesterday afternoon watching House DVDs on her couch. Blessed I tell you... blessed!

There she is!! The real Tammy is back!

So this time tomorrow night it will all be a memory and you will fine and resting. Don't forget the iPod and let me just agree wholeheartedly with the House suggestion. I watched at least a couple of seasons on dvd for day of sympathy and recovery.

You could toss in an Anne of Green Gables and be over the top on your way to happy!

The iPod is a good suggestion. Never thought of that. Thank god for meds afterwards.

I love the Rivendell socks! To bad I get so frustrated with socks.
Glad you have someone to help you out. I have had several root canals and they aren't fun.

Auntie Pudentaine said...

Well? Are you done? I have been thinking of ya all morning!

Yarnhog said...

Judging by the time, your root canal should be done by now. Yay!

I got Inspired to Knit, too, but I've only flipped through the patterns. When I drag-myself out of this work-induced anxiety spiral I'm currently swirling in, I'll have to check out the text, too.

The sock book looks really good, I'll have to put that on my wish list.

I hope your tooth is better now and everything went well! Take it easy for a few days, this is no time to try on your Superwoman cape.

Those socks! WOW!
Glad you are getting your root canal- I hope it heals quickly and you are back to yourself again :)

Good luck at the dentist! Take a skein of something soft and pretty to fondle while the dentist does his work.

Thinking of you...
