This weekend, I stumbled upon 1803 candles and for you candle lovers out there..this.is.it!
These candles are soy based. They burn clean and are better for the environment...........and they smell great! Hannah said today..."Mom, keep buying these candles....I can even smell it upstairs". I like them so much, I think I might start carrying them in the shop :)
Ok...........on to the rants. I will start with the Patriots. It's no secret that I am a HUGE Patriots fan. I LOVE me some football each and every week, but watching today's game was just plain painful. I surely hope that Bellacheck gets a new secondary defensive line next year........just sayin.'
Next on the rant list..........Alice Starmore. The other day when I was reading Anne's blog and her crazy thoughts of joining the NaKnitSweMo, I saw this sweater. (scroll down to the Nov. 12 entry)
OMG........I fell hard. I love everything about this sweater! I looked at the link to virtual yarns and even with the favorable exchange rate these days, it would be a very expensive sweater to knit....but I LOVE this sweater.
The rant............if you do not own this book, you will not be able to knit the sweater as the pattern is not included, only the adaptation from child to adult from the original book.
Now normally this would not be a problem, but all of Alice Starmore's books are out of print and hard to come by at a reasonable price....so it IS a problem.
Thankfully this book is not one of her more popular books and I was able to pick it up for what the book cost back when it was released.......but.......had it been one of the other books, the book would have cost more than the kit. You would think if you are paying upwards of 150.00 for a kit that the pattern would be included.
