Cutting to the chase

The blue silk/merino got frogged again.

The missing W-2 has not shown up (but thankfully we have a month.)

I seem to have taken no notes on Parker’s sweater and thus must do–and trust in–a gauge swatch (I hear all you knitters laughing out there) to use the same yarn and same needles to make Hudson a matching sweater. And not have it fit his big brother instead.

UPS, USPS, and FedEx all steadfastly maintain (I held out hope and didn’t ask the last one till today) that they will not let me ship the $140-each batteries back, even if FedEx shipped them to me in the first place. No can do. So sorry. The magic words “lithium iron” stopped them right there. I left a note with the guy asking okay, now what do I do? I’ve since thought that, well, hmm, we can take video showing the one battery lighting up and the other one dead dead dead, at least.

Sometimes something has to go the way you want it to, which is why I drove to Gwyn of the fancy swiveling scissors this afternoon and she whacked off a bunch for me. It feels great.

(Edited Saturday: I found that note to Starkpower still in my drafts folder today unsent. Which would make it hard for them to answer. Fixed that fast, and my apologies to them.)

Oooo! Very pretty hair! I wish I could get a wave like that!

Lovely! I hope the lost is found – very soon.

the hair cut looks good!

(the company that issued the W2 has the ability to get you a copy — just don’t wait until the last minute to ask — I spent some time doing that for folks during my 30 some years in corporate accounting)

Taking a video of one battery working and the other one not sounds good to me.

Where I work we quite often ask folks to take snapshots of damaged photos. The snapshots are very helpful.

Yes, sometimes something does have to go the way you want it.

I’m about to have to do some frogging of my own – the sweater I’m designing fits like a glove. Sadly, it is supposed to fit like a jacket.
