I took this picture a couple of weeks ago with all the ice. I just thought it looked pretty cool and very grey or blue. Which is sort of how I feel today. We got a new dishwasher yesterday. Cool, huh? Nope, we got the defective one. They are hopefully supposed to be back out today with another one. This is the second time that something like this has happened to us in the last six months. A pretty substantial purchase and it dies (or never works properly in the first place). The first was a new TV that died after only two months. Completely kaput. So, does that mean things aren't being made well, or are they being dropped at the stores/warehouses more often? Or are we just incredibly unlucky when it comes to this sort of thing?
*Sigh* No knitting to show. Second sock is to the heel turn. Oh, for those of you who have asked, the toe-up heel flap is from the Sensational Knitted Socks book. Just look for the Oriel pattern. (Yes, I am too lazy to get up and get the book right now. I've just had a trying couple of days. Sick kids, sick dishwashers.) Well, at least it looks like spring is one the horizon. Nights are still pretty cold, but the days seem warmer and sunnier. I'm wondering if I should go dig out my daffodil bed; that's where all the snow from the driveway always ends up and never melts.
You just ever have one of those weeks? I'll try to be less crabby with the next post. Promise.
