Ok ok they have arrived thank goodness but not before some more worrying and running around. The flight was delayed not one but TWO days! So in order to make sure they were alright I called the glasgow airport hotels in order to speak with them but with no luck. So we had to wait until the next day with fingers crossed hoping they were on the next plane. They were due to arrive in at 9am. Mum and dad had stayed in Halifax both nights as its a 4 hr drive back here. Then of course the 9am was delayed and they weren't coming in until 3pm. I found this out by calling zoom on my breaks at work. I'd left messages for mum and dad to call when the plane came in but hadn't heard anything yet. So at 3:30 I still hadn't heard anything. Called zoom AGAIN! delayed until 4pm. argggggg this was getting a little rediculous! At 4:30 i get home from work and get a call from mum saying we have your nanny and granda PHEW!!!!!
Talk about a frenzy! I'm glad they were on the plane and got here safely. Mum then tells me that instead of staying at the glasgow airport hotels they take them all the way out to Edinburgh to stay...... and the plane that was coming from glasgow to halifax went all the way to ottawa, dropped off people and then came back to halifax. They flew right over us for goodness sake!
Anyway they are here, all is good. This mishap has given me some extra time for nannies socks thank goodness. Since I don't have a day off during the week this week, I won't see them till the weekend, which means a whole weeks extra knitting time woot woot! I'm on sock number 2 now and just about to start the heel. I should have no problem finishing them before saturday!
Now in other knitting news, because of all the delays I decided to pick up and sew my Ruby tank together. Well................ it took all of saturday to sew it up, I wanted it to be just right and sewing up as you know is not something I enjoy. So at about 8pm I whip off the shirt and try it on.................. First thing I learn this week, my boobs are bigger than I thought..... not exactly a bad thing I suppose but IT IS WHEN YOUR FINISHED TANK DOESN'T FIT!!!!!
To put it mildly I took like a hooker thats trying to flaunt something. Instead of the front sides covering half my boobs and then layering with another tank underneath it covers NONE of my boobs. It goes right around then so my boobs are basically just sticking out! AHHHHH!!!
Well apparently I'm an xs in this pattern EXCEPT my boobs! Well FRIG!
Now I'm not so sure what size to knit. Obviously I've gotta take the whole thing appart, I do want to make the body longer as I have a longer torso but what if I make the small and it still doesn't fit my boobs. I don't want to make the medium and then the tank be too baggy.
DANG DANG DANG!!!
I'm off to work on my lace in the quiet before Moose gets up!
