Repeat after me....

"I do not need chocolate. I may want chocolate. I may fear my life will end if I don't eat chocolate very soon. But this is not the case. The desire for chocolate is just that - a desire and not a need. You are a strong and knitterish woman. You do not have to obey every request your body makes. You can say no to this desire."

Or I could say yes - would that make me any less strong or knitterish?

So it would seem SecretPal6 is already getting underway (gah, signup deadline is the 3rd - why don't they tell people these things?!). I don't know though...I have really enjoyed this one but then there is the sock-a-long and christmas presents and so on. But then they do have some good buttons...Ooooo I just don't know (but as with chocolate I know I will do it eventually).

Bashed out a couple more rows on the dreamcatcher cardi last night at golders green group and then sat back to read the next chunk of the pattern. Teva, my dear, what do you think you're doing? I read ahead. I read the damn pattern and noted all the 'AND AT THE SAME TIME' bits BUT I did not expect that 'at the same time' referred to the whole of the rest of the pattern and not just the paragraph it initiated. Jane had an 'at the same time' pattern and it was written much more clearly. Ripped 4 inches and was quite disgruntled.

The Golders Green posse have received an invite to the cast-off-knitted-wedding on 9th Oct and boy am I going. I've also just ordered some white, pink, yellow and green chunky acrylic from Dianne's knitting yarns (link in list on the left) to make a flower garland. May also make some cupcakes. The invite says 'bring your own food because all the food there will be knitted' Ought to knit myself something snazzy to wear to it and I think maybe Picovoli from Magknits might be the answer. I was never particularly aware of magknits but it looks like good stuff and I do like this pattern. Alright goddammit I'll admit that I happen also to have got a ball of gypsy from Dianne too so I thought I might use that round the neck and hem. I can't help it people - I just love Gypsy. I know it's wrong but it's like the chocolate - I am powerless to resist. Ahem....anyway.....

Am going to join Jane on her next Elann order so something else to occupy me later on is choosing what I want - the denise extended cable is a must but I'm sure there are one or two others things I could bear to have in la stash as well.

And finally...there is this. The Dulaan project. I think I might get involved. Will ponder that too. Hey you know whatever happened to my list of words that I like? I'm over using ponder and I'm sure there were other good ones on there just begging to be used. Will dig it out.

Chocolate Cravings can indicate a Magnesium deficiency, as Cocoa is rich in Mg.

It also contained Phenylethylamine, the chemical your brain releases during sex and at Orgasm, and Theobromine, which is a Powerful "feelgood" stimulant chemical.

So, get some Chelated Mg/Ca/Zn tablets from Holand and Barrett, and work on that other thing with Pooch ;-)

Either that, or...

You will need sound to appreciate that one fully... ;-)

Hey - go with the chocolate thing ! It's definately good for you !

Thanks for the comments on the blog - the move to Oman was a bit sudden, but these things always are and I will definately keep the blog up as long as I can do knitting of one sort or another - well I'll still need bags and there are plenty of cotton things I can knit - it doesn't all have to be chunky aran does it ?

Hi,

Just got your packet and I love it. Can't wait to get home...

I'm starting to browse around your blog to get to know you ;O)

And for the record the bag you gave me is just wow and am now using it as my everyday purse, at least until the rainy weather starts (we have had no such luck in the past 12 or more months).
