Something in the water?

Something in the water?

Well, it rained today. And just as I expected it would be, it was wild and crazy at Skein. What is it about a rainy day that impels people to go shopping? We don't even have decent parking. Maybe they think there won't be anyone else out. Or maybe it's just because they can't do anything else.

I did have a good day though. Five students and a few quick questions. The only problem was that they all came at the same time. But none of them were brand new so it wasn't as crazy as it might have been. Three friends who all wanted to learn how to cast on and do the purl stitch. Another wanted to learn to make a hat. And one who needed help undoing her bind off because she forgot she had another skein to go. Just your average rainy day.

I didn't get to leave on time. It was just too busy. Ann Mary owes me big time. I sold an armload of cashmere for a poncho. And yarn for several scarves. So I got home about two hours late. I've had dinner, played with Patrick and cleaned the kitchen. Now it's me time. Knitting as long as I can.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
