Oh Happy Day  

Thursday, April 26, 2007

Remember this? 25 skeins of Tahki cotton classic I acquired from Colorful Yarns in Centennial. (http://colorfulyarns.blogspot.com) It was on sale so I though this was the perfect time to get some yarn for my Log Cabin blanket from the Mason Dixon book. Great idea at the time but my current "swift" named Kevin was a bit overwhelmed by all this.

Then along came Nachaele (knit-eat-sleep.blogspot.com), who so graciously let me borrow her swift. My swift was one happy dude.

In no time I had this.
I never thought I needed a swift before. I had a ball winder and Kevin really didn't mind being my swift, but after using Nachaele's, I now know why I need a real swift. This took minutes (okay, under one hour, that is still minutes) to wind up. With my old "swift" it would have been hours even days. Not his fault, we just had to be so careful not to tangle up the yarn. My swift liked to "flick" his hands a lot and that caused yarn dropping and tangles, plus we could never really go that fast. I am SOLD. I ordered my own swift. Thanks Nachaele.

Now I have to find somewhere to a put my new project with all this wound yarn. mmmm....
It is my Tepper Jackson bag to the rescue. What other bag could be more fitting to hold all that colorful yarn a bag from Colorful Yarn, what else.
Wow, I even have a matching accessory bag.
Now, I just need more knitting time!

A moment from the Little Princess, Dina. I haven't told you much about her yet so here goes. I got her from a farm in Arkansas. She had gotten too big to show and too big to breed and she just needed a good home. She is the Amazon of Chinese Cresteds. Her parents were both a respectable 12" but she is over 14 1/2", So no one really wanted her after she became full grown. She came to me on her first birthday. She was pretty, but oh so aloof. She was friendly but not the cuddly little thing I wanted at the time. She seemed very independent. Having lived on a farm and all I wasn't sure we could make her happy. She had fleas and she was a mess. She had never traveled before, so she threw up, a lot, at first. We took her home cleaned her up and decided that even though she wasn't warm and cuddly we WOULD give this little girl a good home. I thought that I really needed a puppy to get a real connection and this one was already a year old so I did not think I could ever really connect with her. I was still thinking of getting my puppy also. I am glad I didn't because, I was so wrong. She has turned out to be the best "dog" (loosely used, she is more like one of us, she is a member of our family) we have ever had. She is so very smart and yes, she is warm and cuddly. She seems to love being around us and we love her very much. She is very special to Kevin and I. She is our Little Princess.

    For a second I thought you had named your swift "Kevin". Then I understood. :) I love log cabin-ing (I'm going to make it a verb). It's so nice to have a no brainer project to knit while watching TV, children, etc. Your yarn looks so lovely, I can't wait to see it knitted up.

    Ah, the allure of the Log Cabin! Sounds like a lot of fun, and a great bag to put it in! I have a pile of Cotton Fine that awaits a project, perhaps it will become a log cabin too!

    I was just a recipient of your random act of kindness. (It's good to be a knitter!) Thank you thank you thank you for the beautiful Gedifra Yarn! It was passed along to me by an angel of knitting named Cathy (thank you Cathy). I'm envisioning a tank top for the warm days to come.

    Thanks again!

    Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

    When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

    Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

    Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

    Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

    Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

    Winning the Game

    The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

    There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

    Bingo Game Rules

    Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

    Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

    Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

    Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
