Have you ever slept on a Coleman blow-up air mattress?
Let me give you a hint – these are about 6 inches thick when blown up. Air distributed between a number of cells. And it is not possible to punch or push it into shape much less nestle yourself down into a nest. It is not form fitting. It is sleeping on top of a thick plastic covered balloon.
What you can do instead is make an incredible amount of noise while you settle yourself on it, trying to be comfortable. Driving everyone else in the room around the bend.
The yarn for those orange/pink broken rib socks is Dicentra Designs in Sunset. At 375 yards for 4 oz, it is slightly heavier than the traditional sock weight yarns. Composition is 50% wool, 50% alpaca. I am not going to be wearing these until the weather gets cold.
I have the cuff completed on the second rib on the side, but no pix. Tomorrow, I promise. What is even more wonderful is that Anni managed to mail out the June pattern – River Valley socks will be up next. And I have lots of choices with me.
I am finding the Rex Stout mysteries featuring Inspector Nero Wolf interesting. I would be happier if my computer was willing to transfer CDs to my MP3 player at a rate faster than 3-4 CDs an hour. I am not sure what is going on with the interface between the CD Rom drive and the software, but it is driving me nuts. Right up there with Norton warning me that my virus files need to be updated. No kidding, but I am not hooked to the Internet.
