Today's post is brought to you by the letter "Y"

Today was the longest day in the history of the world. It had to be. I spent NINE hours in the hospital waiting room. My mom had rotator cuff surgery today, and we were there for AGES. Everything went really well though, and the people were so nice. She's at home resting now. She's pretty bummed about having to wear her arm in a sling, because things around her neck bother her. But she'll be fine. :)

I don't have much knitting progress for you. Even with all the waiting time. I did a few rows on the baby blanket, which, at 350 plus stitches per row, is no small thing, but that's ALL THE KNITTING I DID. Isn't that... how shall I put this.... oh, right. The weirdest thing you've ever heard???? See, I've reached the decision to get a degree in computer programming. As I can't start it right away, I checked out a couple of "Teach yourself html" books from the library. I went through almost half of that book twice. I read it through, and then I went back and took notes on things I was afraid I'd forget. And the good news? It didn't give me a headache! Yay!

You all know that I'm doing the scavenger hunt swap right? Well today I've been working on figuring out what to get my person. I've got something already for "something 'T'" and "something hard." I have something local, something green, and the spoilers choice picked out. I Just need to get them. So all that's left is something round (I know sorta was I'm getting, but not exactly) and something funny. I have no idea for the something funny. Any suggestions? I know, how could you possibly know that without knowing who it is.... well, I'll give you a hint: She's a relatively new knitter, and has next to nothing in the way of knitting goodies. What do you think?

P.S. Sorry I haven't blogged for a few days... don't you hate it when life gets in the way of all your fun? :)

maybe you could find some goofy stitch markers? or one of those plastic sheep that poops when you squeeze it :) the latter not so much knitting related, but the sheep is and it's funny :)
