Letters to the UPS Guy

8/24 8:54PM -
Dear UPS Guy, I know that sometimes in your busy schedule certain packages are over looked, I also know my thinking my yummy yarn purchase being here today was a little optamistic. I also know that you guys deliver until 6pm and I left the house at 4...:30. So with all this in mind I am going to keep clinging to the fantasy that when I get there a package with my name on it will be on my doorstep, for both our sakes.

8/24 9:38PM-
Dear UPS Guy, you fail. Lets hope this pattern doesn't continue.

8/25 9:00AM-

Dear UPS Guy, Maybe yesterday I did not impress apon you the seriousness of this situation. I want you to know, beloved delivery man, that I am pregnant and on top of that my other friend, who is BROKEN, is also awaiting afore mentioned yummy yarn. W...e have an addiction that can't be denied, and you are the only person who can help. Please take this into consideration as you make you way about the world today.

8/25 7:20PM
Dear UPS guy, so glad we had this chat :-)

Things I didn't know...

I found out a few things in the last few days.
1. homade soap chips (what is left in the pot after pouring into the mold, and what is left after cutting the soap into nice even bars) can be made into body wash (knew this) but this body wash is an even better dish soap! Seriously, best dish soap I've ever used, not going to use anything else :-)
2. I havethe ability to write knitting patterns :-) I just sat down and wrote a pattern for a pair of yoga socks for my little sister (nothing I was finding was really what I wanted for her, and very little of it was in a fingering weight, which is the yarn I wanted to use.) and a pair od fingerless gloves to match. So impressed am I with myself that I will be posting the patterns here on LJ and linking them to my Ravelry account for all to enjoy. I am also going to make a point of making more patterns :-)

Other then that I don't know what I have learned, but I will keep you updated :-)
