Why yes, I went to Catholic grade school, why do you ask? (heh.) I'm just sayin'.
Wikipedia, referring to the colloquial use of the word "purgatory" says this: The word "purgatory" has come to refer also to a wide range of historical and modern conceptions of postmortem suffering short of everlasting damnation, and is used, in a non-specific sense, to mean any place or condition of suffering or torment, especially one that is temporary.
They say a lot more, but this is the use I was looking for. The temporary torment of sleeves!
Copine is waiting patiently for hers - see her up there on Cherie. I'm about 1/6 done with her sleeves. Diminishing Rib Cardi is moving along quite a bit faster (mostly because I just had to pick up stitches to knit those sleeves). DRC will come visit later.
We had a much better week of Lacrosse, even though we played in a deluge on Tuesday and had several injured kids. Puck landed on his hip in camp and had to work through back spasms, we had the "bent" collarbone, and sprained thumb and tonight we had a possible broken hand. That's what happens when you give teens and pre-teens sticks and tell them to get the ball away from the other guy. Tuesday night they tied a Bloomington team 5-5 and tonight they beat Chaska 7-5. Tonight's game was awesome and they played like a bunch of all-stars.
In the meantime, Teen and DH are off to the cabin tonight. Puck and I are rolling out in the morning. Cabin knitting has been declared Empoisonee (now I've the knack of those short-row toes!) I've got some new yarn to show you and hopefully an FO next week so look for me later!
I hope Puck is feeling better! Rest up over the weekend!
Have fun at the cabin! Good to have your cabin knitting decided.
Your copine is so lovely.
