Special Sauce

Almost Famous.

Sorta.

The neighbor's raid made it to the paper. The girl they arrested had 26 baggies of heroin and multiple (I forget how many) baggies of coke up the sleeve of her sweater when the cops came busting in. The twit on the lease was holding a crack pipe and a "small quantity of cocaine", and the guy that has been in and out of there also had a pipe. The two brain trusts were released with a summons, and the other one (sweater girl) is still in jail because she couldn't raise the bond.

I certainly hope they send the twit off too.

There were still people comin' up in here today trying to buy, and the twit kept goin' out "no, i don't have anything" and they'd turn around and leave.

In non-drug-related news:

I've gotten about 7 or 8 pattern repeats on Branching Out done. I really like how this looks, and it's going quickly. I see this being whipped up for several people this holiday season. And thanks to The Enabler's de-stashing, I have several additional colors of Zephyr to make it from. (I bought #58, and received 9,67, and I believe 68). In the new year, perhaps, once my sweater's done, I will attempt a bigger lace project.

So far I'm liking the lacework, but it's definitely not something mindless, and I suck at memorizing pattern repeats, so I am perpetually checking my place. I have to stay really focused on what I'm doing, but in a way, it's very meditative. (I know. I know. Knitting is the new hot stone massage. But, for me, that's a good thing- being inordinately focused on something takes me out of the constant dialog in my brain. I don't have room to be freaking out over something stupid if I'm trying to remember if I just SSK'd or s2-k1-p2sso'd.)

And by the way, knitting is the new Bikram Yoga.
You know this.
