One more thing, with all this talk of an MMC convention, I forgot to mention that my son's scout den leader's family owns Santa's Village in Jefferson, New Hampshire. The problem is that is it is a 4 hour drive from here where I live, and 3 hours, 10 minutes from Logan International in Boston. There's not much else in word of airports around there, all over 100 miles away, so it really isn't a feasible place. If that was ever a possibility, I probably could work out some sort of group rate/package deal for us here at MMC.
Here is the site: http://www.santasvillage.com/index.cfm

Oh yeah, and JP won 3rd place in the Pinewood Derby yesterday.

Good night for the third time tonight.

I haven't tried it, but I've read that if you have to carry the yarn over more than four stitches, it's better to use a separate bobbin or ball of yarn for that section of color. It makes sense in theory. Or you can crochet over the dropped yarn, but it makes the fabric very stiff and can show through, depending on the colors and the type of yarn.

We went to see The Croods for our niece's birthday, I didn't like the movie too much, give me the Flintstones any day. Then it was off to their house for pizza and cake, but I should have stayed home, but who can turn down pizza and cake.

I am feeling lousy, so I will probably say good night now, I do have to work, I can't afford to miss any more work time.


Good night everyone.

I wish you felt better....Will keep you in my prayers xo

I also saw some yarn that I just might go back and buy that was a warm brown (almost taupe) muted turquoise, and cream. The turquoise was about the color of a Siamese cat's eyes. I thought that would look good in a ripple afghan. Normally I think of colors for ripple afghans since I love that pattern and since it is easy to do.
I love ripples, too! My mom never made anything but ripples, and she taught me the basics of setting up the pattern.

I have always loved that movie...to me Art Carney was a fantastic Santa !! Have you ever considered buying a copy off one of the private merchants who work through Amazon ? I have done that a few times and the videos were in EXCELLENT condition, unopened and a great buy. Never a problem !! xo
