I've finally decided that I really want to make the tilted duster on the cover of the Fall 2007 issue of Interweave Knits, in addition to another pattern that I *think* is in that issue.

The problem...all of the local stores that I called today are sold out of that issue! (I called 3 stores and visited 1 yesterday.) Also, only one person on Ravelry offered to trade (and that person is in England).

So, I now have an issue coming to me from the yarn store in Columbia. Thank you, Hillcreek Yarn Shoppe!

Mizzou lost last night.

I spent over an hour and a half on the phone this morning before even getting out of my pajamas.

It's just as well. My head feels like it's full of concrete and my ears are ringing.

When I started my first real job after college, a co-worker once asked me, "After you turn 30, why must you wake up every morning feeling like you have a giant hangover?" Being 23, I didn't know what the heck the guy was talking about.

Lately, I can kind of relate. Sometimes, my body just feels beaten in the morning. I used to enjoy getting up early on the weekends, but now I just want to sleep sleep sleep. For a while, I thought this might be some sort of depression creeping in, but really, I think I'm just tired. Getting up at 6:30 during the week wears me out.

Also, why must the weather be so crappy this weekend?

I've got this issue! If you can cancel your order from Hillcreek, let me know.

Darn - I should have posted this before calling Hillcreek! I probably could call and cancel this morning, but I don't want to be *that* person!

Thanks for the offer, though. I really should just subscribe myself.
