Pam Allen, will you marry me?

Okay, I'm already happily married, and we'd both have to move to Canada (which wouldn't be that much of a hardship, but still, those pesky green cards), and you probably prefer tall, dark and handsome to medium, blonde and plump.

But I must say that receiving three brand-new CEY (i.e. Classic Elite Yarns) pattern booklets in the mail on Saturday made me very, very happy, reminding me of those halcyon days when you were editor of IK (not that I don't still love IK, mind you).



Oh the gorgeous photography!



The adorable models who don't irk me at all!




The lervely, lervely patterns!



Kate Gilbert, you can be a bridesmaid at our wedding --I love this sweater


Don't forget the purty new yarns -- in addition to Wool Bam Boo, which I dearly love working with, there's a new Cotton Bamboo and a blend of linen, wool and alpaca called Soft Linen (which is what this hoodie is knit in).



[Sigh of pleasure.]

It was almost enough to make me forget about the dreaded Bus Incident. (Thanks for all your comments and ideas. We're drafting our letter and sending it out today. In the words of John Paul Jones or Patrick Henry or whoever it was, "I have not yet begun to fight!" My kids are everything to me and woe betide anyone who doesn't treat 'em right. I'll keep you posted.)

I was going to ask if T knew about this, but after seeing that brown tank top, who cares?????

Hey, those models look like human beings and not as if they're from zzbaluba!

Correct on John Paul Jones. ("John Paul Jones, for the win"?)


Hopefully later on you'll be able to quote Oliver Hazard Perry: We have met the enemy and [she] is ours..."

These are not bad, but if I see one more sweater that buttons under the boobs and leaves the gut hanging out, I'm going to scream. That's a fashion trend that needs to DIE.

Oh my, I was out for a few days and just caught up on the bus situation. You get 'em! You have to stick up for your kids.

I had the best bus driver when me and my sister were little, any foolishness and he turned the bus around and went back to the school. If there was a specific kid doing something stupid, the kid got put off the bus and had to sit in the principal's office until someone could come and pick him up. We had some doozies too though, and my mom was always hard-core about fighting with the schools over stuff like this.

OK, I want these! About the bus thing, go get em! I gotcher back! I'd refer you to last year's immunization shot post, but it's basically the same priciple. I told the nurse where she coul dput her shot and called her a miserable C and yes, I put it in print. You can take the girl out of Philly...

Carol said...

All this time, and no one's said "But Carol, you're not plump!"

mindy said...

Well that goes without saying...

I love that hoodie, too. I'm keen to hear the next installment of the bus story. My experiences with public schools suggest that they are more political than educational systems, and you ran into the political buzz saw.
