Frustrating lace attempts

I finally decided it was time for me to try lacing. Try is the key word here. After spending some time selecting a pattern I'd like, and that wouldn't be too complicated, I decided on Caribbean Scarf. Seemed easy enough: some knit, some purl, knit 3 together, yarnover, nothing I haven't done before. One my first attempt, I noticed I had 40 sts on instead of 41 after a few rows ( it was my swatch). Second attempt, same results but further along. No big deal, I'll frog it and start over. Third attempt, after about eight rows I had 3 sts missing. That's it, I'm laced out for today!

Another pair of socks

Look what just came off my needles. Yes, another pair of socks, and for me too! The yarn I used is called Klassik, and it's from Stahl. I'm sure the in-laws will appreciate that this yarn was made in Romania. At least Sandra will...

The amazing Exploding Diet Coke...

I get home and see a suspicious stain on the floor, next to the fridge. What could it be? I open the door, and find that mess. A closer look, and I find the perpretator....
I guess my fridge is so cold that the Diet Coke froze.
