I'm Back!

OK, so yesterday morning I called the repair place and they sent an AC repairman. He looked everything over, determined that it was the outside box thingy (my brother has informed me that some people refer to that as a compressor, but I don't know these people), and had figured out what was wrong with it. The capacitor was dead. Apparently capacitors are kind of like batteries so when Caleb suggested that maybe we should just change the battery on the AC, he was pretty much right - except that it doesn't run on AA's. So a quick change on the capacitor, a check on the rest of the outside part of the system and by 10:30 he was gone, cold air was filling up our home again, and I was still going to make it to Field Day with Caleb! The best part? Capacitors aren't too expensive so the whole service call was under $250! Not too bad in the world of HVAC repair. Thanks for all the well wishes and happy thoughts sent the way of our AC! So, back to the real purpose of this blog: to ramble on and on with whatever is hanging off my knitting needles, winding around my bobbin, or laying in little puffs beside the drum carder until your eyes glaze over. Today we will discuss something that falls into the first category: The Green Moss Shawl That Isn't Green At All, But Knit In My Frostrosen Yarn, Which Reminds Me Of Apricots. I've been referring to it as the Green Moss Shawl for short. I have completed 128 rows which means I'm through the shaping part of the shawl. Now I just work straight for 20 rows and then I just knit the edging across the top. Yes, I'm coming around the final turn for this. It hasn't been a difficult pattern to knit and it actually knits up very quickly, I've just been piddling with it and haven't devoted my time to it properly. I'd like to get it done soon because the color just really begs to be worn for summer.

Oh, I forgot to mention yesterday, over the weekend Mindy sent me a picture of her socks so I could put a picture of the orange socks on the blog - scroll down to the bottom of Friday's entry to see them!

Glad the AC bill wasn't astronomical! Love the Green Moss Shawl Which Isn't Green. It's going to be lovely when finished. Oh, would you email me I have a question for you. :)

Your frostrosen moss shawl looks wonderful!

Congrats on the not-so-bad-AC bill. I'm getting ready to replace mine and soooo not looking forward to it.

I've seen it - the non-green shawl - and it is NOT apricot!! It's pink!!! It is pretty, just not apricot! Mother

Ohh, how pretty!

One thing I hate about lace, is even though you can be nearly done with a project, it appears that you've only just begun because it's so scrunchy. Oh the joys of blocking! :-)

Thanks for the well wishes yesterday! :-)

I love what is hanging off your needle ;-)
Oh we have a broken AC :-( But we need a whole new outside unit. Everything ordered, should be here next week.

Lovely Color - and pattern. I just checked and there are over 1500 people on the Mystery Stole #3. It is good you are scared! I guessed 2000 people by July 6. I have to revise that. 2000 people by July 1. Which ever way you slice this it, that is a lot of KALers.
