I finished it!

“laughing gas”
Yup I just cast off the last stitch. I breathed a sigh of relief… Next step is to take the ends of the yarn and slip them back into the project. Last step will be to block it prior to sending.


I will tie the loose ends in on Saturday… ;) because I have worked on this, my first baby blanket during all of the WVU football games. Seems fitting and proper I finish it on the day our regular season is over.
************** Not that doing so will insure we win, just a good story my Niece might one day tell her daughter.
********************* Picture of that once it is blocked. One of the most important skills for knitters to learn is blocking knitting. Blocking refers to the process that makes knitted objects square and even. Blocking knitting is vital to making sweaters fit right and to making blocks for a project all the same size. As they say the Finishing TOUCHES.
***************** HA HA another Football term BLOCKING. Snickering.
********************************************* I figure Game time is the perfect time for the project to RELAX, as for sure I will be on pins and needles. Sat, Dec 1st, 2007, ESPN, 7:45 PM Home game against Pittsburgh. The 100th Backyard Brawl!
************************************** Then there is the story about Douglas and Holly as well as meeting GUS.


Today the dentist, while always difficult for me to endure, today the nitrous got a tad out of hand…
*********************** Nitrous oxide (also called dinitrogen oxide or dinitrogen monoxide) is a chemical compound with the chemical formula N2O. At room temperature, it is a colorless non-flammable gas, with a pleasant, slightly sweet odor and taste. It is used in surgery and dentistry for its anaesthetic and analgesic effects. It is commonly known as "laughing gas" due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it, a property that has led to its non-medical use as an inhalant drug. It is also used in motor racing to increase the power output of engines. ********************* Well my motor was racing MANY RPM’S


Got a good snort of the stuff and thought I heard my answering machine go off. WOW what a trip. Not only that but before we all knew something was amiss, I swear I could smell Sushi
****************** It gets better, I think. I had to pop into a shop for another item, and while I was there the owner and his son and I discussed the placement of the Christmas tree in his shop. During the 2 hour lovely chatty visit the son said. Now remember this is a young man that recently returned from Iraq, and I have seen him grow up.
*************** YUP SUCKER on my forehead…
**************************** Just Say N2O HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It seems Josh cannot keep his year old cat in his apartment, because the landlord wants to up his rent significantly a year…damage prediction…
************************* Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Tomorrow afternoon, we will open our home to a spayed female that I believe is a longhaired light brown named TUNA. Neat name we shall keep it.
************************** As for Doug, Holly and GUS will tell about that tomorrow.

I liked the story about the laughing gas. Remembering your post of a short time ago on the bobcat I found the only still photo I have taken of one and posted it. It is not of great quality, but it was all I could get under the circumstances.
