Mr. Ineebrio singing *K1P2* must’ve put a spell on me yesterday because I CAN’t LET IT GO!

    Hmmm…maybe this calls for a sweater in a K1P2 pattern! :)

    Speaking of SG1, when do you think the next episode is going to be on? I know it’s only been a few weeks but I’m suffering serious withdrawal! :-)

    This post is a scream! Very entertaining. That’s why I read you, Bonne Marie. Now I want to go listen to that Glen Miller song.

    Bonnie Marie – as a child my father (a dartmouth man) would take us to the Harvard-Dartmouth football game in the fall. Everyone on the Dartmouth side would cheer “Har, har, har with v, var, var, var with a d, knit one, purl two, Harvard Yoo Hoo” while waving white hankies from very, very limp wrists. I think it burned my dad that I ended up marrying a Harvard man and I knit!

    Boy, when you get ahold of a bone you sure chew it until it’s all gone. Thanks for all the information…. love the Glenn Miller song lyrics.

    Now I may be reading too much into your last comment, (“When I’m obsessed I’m possessed all the way…”) but I swear I could hear a West Side Story reference. (i.e. When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way…”) and I immediately had the funniest image of the Jets dancing w/knitting needles in hand knitting up a storm. I know, I know… it’s ridiculous but that’s how my mind works. My life is a 1950s musical. :-)

    RIGHT ON! Shannita – when you’re a JET!

    I LOOOOOVE West Side Story – I live on the WestSide – I don’t know if where you live they have the EastSide, NorthSide, WestSide, SouthSide HATS but they are very big here.

    I’m thinking of cribbing some WestSide embroidery off of one of the hats and putting it on a Bucket…
