I've switched over to Bernat Handicrafter Cotton. My local Michaels doesn't carry Sugar n' Cream. There's one lys that sells it, but they don't have very many colors. There's another one a bit farther out, but they sell it for like $4.50 a ball! They must be on drugs if they think people will pay that much for Sugar 'n Cream.
Anyway, the Bernat will do just fine for now, until I get my butt in gear and order S & C off the internet. The only real difference between the two yarns is that the Bernat only has 60 something yards, so it's not enough for 2 cloths like the S & C. I do end up with some left over, so I'm experimenting with doing a smaller plain garter stitch rectangle. I think this will make a good washcloth. I just cast on for this this morning, so I'll let you know how it works.
Here's something weird --- I ended up eating raw chicken last night. Not purposely, but I still felt like an idiot. Don't worry. I think I'm fine.
I was starving when I got home, and I didn't want to eat right away, because I wasn't sure what time Stu would be home, so I put off eating for a while.
By the time I found out he was going to be pretty late, I was starving. I rifled through the freezer, and found some Chicken Florentine. It said it could be microwaved, so I was like Sweet! I'll be eating in no time. I followed the directions exactly.
It was starting to get dark at this point, and I didn't have any lights on yet. I was eating by the light of the TV. The chicken was piping hot, and was actually pretty good.
Half way through the chicken breast, the TV got brighter, and as I took a bite, I realized that the chicken wasn't white like normal cooked chicken, it was closer to the raw chicken color.
I jumped up and flipped the light on, at which point I realized that all of the chicken was still raw! Needless to say, I'd pretty much lost my appetite at this point.
I knew I would be facing some ribbing from Stu, since he's the one who normally cooks dinner. I was right. He said, "Geez, I leave you alone to fend for yourself for dinner for ONE night, and you almost kill yourself with raw chicken!"
I'll leave you with some kitty love---
