STUCK

Now I've gone and done it. How can a simple chore like clearing away the breakfast clutter lead to such a frustrating mess. I don't know how to solve the problem. My sink drain, the one that leads to the disposal, is plugged up with a little old cheese or jelly glass. It JUST FITS! Of course the water cannot rush through, but sluggishly seeps down. I cannot get a grip on it. I cannot work a barbecue tongs around the edge. Perhaps Freckles can work her smallish hand in to move it out.

Another stuck situation happened when I started Sarah's mittens. I guess I pulled the loose end of yarn from the wrong end of the ball. How can you tell just by looking at it. Periodically I have to pull out a whole bunch of yarn and then try to work the knitting end free. This is not easy, especially when the said yarn is somewhat fuzzy to begin with?

    LOL, I have done that with yarn before and my patience level is zilch and I made such a huge mess that I neve completed that project - gasp!

    Better luck with no stickies tomorrow Ü

  • Yay!!! I stuffed a dishcloth and my hand into the glass. I squished out all of the water and created a vacuum. Up it came!

  • The creative genious strikes again! Glad you got your sink unstuck. Just think you could have used the glass as a viewer to look into the recesses of your "garborator".

    Stay away from fuzzy yarn...there's so much nice stuff out there. Try PLYMOUTH ENCORE..Lazy Diasy sells it. It's my all time favorite.
