Grey Matters

A little off topic, but my washing machine flipped into the air mid cycle, end for end.

Yep. Completely airborne.

The top blew off too. The bottom was nowhere to be found. Water everywhere. Bits and pieces of washing machine all over the garage.

Appliance mayhem.

The noise was so overwhelmingly cacophonous that I thought a dump truck had crashed into the back yard.

Nope. Just the washing machine leaping into the air like an Olympic high diver, landing with a big cement splash/clang. You can check out the aftermath on You Tube here.

I was only washing a queen sized sheet and mattress cover. No bricks or dead bodies. No dynamite. And thankfully, no knits.

I spent two hours on the phone with Sears. No luck. They played dumb. Unwilling to help or replace because we don’t have a warranty even though this is surely an issue become the normal hum drum of typical malfunction and aging. The Kenmore was four years old.

Stupid Sears.


My love affair with Madelinetosh continues. This time with DK. It’s all about grey for me this season. A couple of skeins of Fallencloud (right) have become hats.

Great Grey Owl (left) is on the needles at present, also in the form of a hat design. It’s all about experimenting with an i-cord cast on for a brim. I was about to rip the whole thing, quit hats, and move onto fingerless gloves until I tried on the first few inches once the would-be hat was off the needles. I decided it wasn’t so bad after all. Back on the needles it went. This serves as further evidence that I am a glass half full kind of person.

The fingerless mitts will have to wait. Even though a design came to me in my sleep last night. Good thing I wrote it down.
