WIP-Updated w/Picture and Moan Session

Okay, still the Short N Sweet. I frogged yesterday to a certain point and am almost done the right front. The pattern was written a little confusing at that point and I was frustrated, but still kinda tried. This is where I know I should trust my instincts but rarely do. Anyway, as I tenatively hooked, I realized I could contact Angela "Lavonne" Best, the designer of above mentioned WIP. I have bought patterns off of Lavonne before and she is very, very helpful and get back to you immediately. Well apparently, I was not the only one stumped at this point-when I wrote to Lavonne, she graciously emailed me a pdf on the entire right front section complete with diagram. I couldn't find this anywhere on the Bust website, even when typing in the exact addy-so if anyone needs it, I saved the file.



  
This picture is now meaningless as I have frogged once again.



UPDATE 2: Apparently I wasn't correct with my increase, frogged to row 6 and using the newest diagram/instructions sent to me this AM. I will get this done....I will.

Other news: Today, is the clear liquids only day. I am not a broth gal, so it's Lime (I had a choice, lemon or lime) jello, 7-Up, Ginger-Ale or white cranberry juice. Didja ever notice when you aren't "allowed" to eat, you want it even more. I can't have my cuppa tea either, cause I like milk in my tea and milk isn't clear (dammit). Anyway, I start the Phospho-Soda stuff at 2:00, 2:10, 2:20 and then again tonight at 8:00, 8:10 and 8:20 followed by gallons of liquid. Should make for a real crappy (pun intended) afternoon and night. Doubt I will sleep much, but hope I do. Tomorrow, we'll leave very, very early to be signed in, prepped, etc by 8:30 AM. The procedure isn't so bad (I will be sleeping), but the prep sucks and I've done it before and hate it completely. Hopefully, this will resolve or help resolve some of my problems and then I can just move on and get on with my life.

Until tomorrow.......

It'll all be over soon! And hey, you get a nap out of it, at least! :)

And I'd love the PDF Lavonne sent to you. I'm planning on starting it when I get a free (ha!) moment. Thanks!

Was it that whole add the extra chain? That part threw me and I emailed LaVonne too.

Good luck today and tomorrow. I'll be hoping you get some definite answers.

Kathy said...

Keep reminding yourself it's too hot to eat, it's too hot to eat...

Seriously, I hope you get thru this with no problem, and will be looking to hear from you that you're feeling much better after the big clean-out.

Deneen, worst part is the prep, you won´t feel anything.

Lucy said...

Good luck on your procedure. I think I'm in for one of those after I turn 50 (next year) as a routine thing. Behind on my blog reading...saw your espadrilles...I made one of the other versions....yours look great!!

Wendy said...

Sounds shitty! I hope you get some answers tomorrow. Been thinking about you.

Jessi said...
