Like Sands Through an Hour Glass

Today must be my day. I finished reading my paper, got my equipment to work (if only briefly) and got past the devilish twist on the Twist Front Top. AND it was basically the right length. The next problem with the pattern is...the pattern! The arm/neck decreases are supposed to be done separate, but why give decrease numbers based on them together? And those are still wrong.

But I've got a game plan. I'll just decrease one stitch on each side of the arm and neck and make it work despite the wonky instructions.
I check my site counter whenever it strikes me and most recently I noticed the most amusing referral address from Comcast email. To the person reading my blog from their comcast email, thank you for categorizing me as one of the "knitting bitches," I can only hope you meant it in the most complimentary way : )
Speaking of amusement, Robin posted a cute trivia generator on her blog. For me? Not so cute

- do tell me about

I am a 500 ton, spicy, Pinocchio material that can cause a bad case of wrong side of the beditis. And, I can sleep for 3.5 years (hence the beditis). Not too many bitchy knitters I know can make these claims.
Have a fantastic weekend!
