I was giving Gracee dog her ear drops today. It's difficult since she has the ability to close her ears. That got me thinking what if we could close our ears like she can? It would be a physical way of doing "I'm not listening." We could adjust the volume of life by partially shutting our ears. It would be a method of selective listening (like some people we know need another way of doing that). When in the presence of foul language we could command our children to "Close your ears!" This one gets filed in the "someone's got to think about these things" category.
What if I can finish two more summer projects this weekend, bringing the total to three scarves
and the Shoalwater Shawl? Oops, I spoke too soon. Two hours after writing this I was on the last 24 stitches of the Shoalwater and what did I discover? A major dropped stitch mistake seven rows down. That will teach me to knit in LED flashlight glow while watching Lost! Now the question is, do I pick out 2800 stitches or frog it back and pick up 400? Sometimes that takes the same amount of time.
And what if you were one of those people on Lost? Wouldn't you have picked up some sticks and started knitting coconut hair by now?
