my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

My current obsession

The one on the left is the second in that color combo. The first was gifted to M-i-L this weekend as a condo-warming gift (yay! they're buying a place down the shore). I'm going to give her the rest of them, too. I really liked the ombre as the main color, but now, I'm loving the natural as the main color. Love the diagonal rainbow effect. I'm using Sugar and Cream in Natural and Buttercream. I'm going to keep knitting on these until the yarn is gone.

Billy didn't want to wear pants again today. Eventually, I got some red sweats on him and then he insisted on wearing a belt. Hubby is still claiming it's my fault and is concerned about what this particularity means for the kid's future. Me, I'd just like to get out of the house without the screaming matches. I just don't know what to do. He can take his pants off now, so even if we wrestle and force a pair he doesn't want on him, he'll be naked in five minutes.

In other news, the itching definitely seems to be stress-related. I had a huge outbreak last night, hives and all, and my skin was nowhere near dry. (I recently switched to Eucerin lotion.) But, I did get a final notice in the mail from the hospital for that MRI I had in April 2005. Seems the hospital and my insurance carrier can't agree on how much an MRI should cost. Since my coverage for radiologic is 100% and the carrier insisted on the MRI when the doctor first prescribed a CT-scan, and since the hospital is in-network, we really should have no out-of-pocket expenses. Hubby's called the carrier twice (we've been getting bills since August, 16 months after the test), and they told him to not worry about it. Well, now that the hospital is threatening us with a collections agency, it's time to worry a bit, don't you think? Fortunately, my company has an account with Health Advocate and I've turned everything over to them. I hope there's a resolution that does not require a check from us and does not negatively impact my credit rating.

I like the dishcloths on the right, too, although if I were sitting there with the two skeins, I probably would have knit something that looked like the one on the left. Strange how you can get stuck in one way of seeing things and then when you try something new it turns out to be lovelier than imagined.
