Scripture Reading: Bemidbar (Numbers) 29-31

Num 30:6 "But if she at all belongs to a husband, while bound by her vows or by a rash utterance from her lips by which she bound herself,
Num 30:7 and her husband hears it, and he has kept silent towards her on the day that he hears, then her vows shall stand, and her agreements by which she bound herself do stand.
Num 30:8 "But if her husband forbids her on the day that he hears it, then he has nullified her vow which she vowed, and the rash utterance of her lips by which she bound herself, and יהוה pardons her.

Hound Hoodie: I got all the sewing and finishing work done on this last night. As usual, all the finish work always takes longer than I expect it to (and way longer than I want it to!). In the end, though, it did end up looking like a cute little hoodie for a dog, so I'm happy with how it turned out. Now it just remains to see if it fits little Harley. At least if it's on the big side, he can perhaps grow into it.

Hooded Sweater: The skein of yarn I used for the Hound Hoodie was all depleted and floppy and not really holding its original skein shape anymore, so rather than wind it into a ball to keep it from getting all tangled up, I decided to just go ahead and start the Hound Hoodie-matching Hooded Sweater for my daughter. This can then be my little easy take-along project. The Pinwheel Sweater is too big and bulky for a take-along, and the Jeanie is not mindless enough yet since I have to pay close attention to the charts. In fact, for all I know, Jeanie may never be uncomplicated enough for a grab-and-go project. The Hooded Sweater, like the Hound Hoodie, is just 1x1 ribbing and stockinette stitch with very little shaping, so very suited to 'mindless knitting' while away from home. It did take me three gauge swatches to determine needle size, though, so that was rather irritating. I always hate it when it doesn't line up on the first try, but again, it's something that has to be done, no matter how 'hatiest' it is.

The Amazing Race: It was really disappointing to see T.K. repeatedly not see the 'Vinci' sign big as can be on the landscape below because it was getting to the point where this team was the least irritating, so I wanted to like them. But how could he miss that big word down there so many times? Maybe it was because every time they showed him on camera, he had his hands, head and eyes up in the air instead of keeping his eyes on the ground, where they were supposed to be! I can't take that Ronald anymore. It almost doesn't even matter what garbage he is spewing at his daughter anymore--all it takes is the tone of his voice to grate on my ears something terrible, probably because that sound is now so completely associated with stuff I don't want to hear. And WHAT were the producers thinking when they required the Fast Forward to include a tattoo that looks like the Nazi SS insignia? First, tattooing is forbidden by the Scriptures, so why should a person have to violate their religion to get an advantage in the race? (A Fast Forward in a previous season required drinking pig's blood, also forbidden in the Scriptures.) Second, if it has to be a tattoo, then why a Nazi-looking one? Speaking of tattoos, I'm assuming that's what's on T.K.'s girlfriend's lower back, but then it also looks like it could be severe bruising and ecchymosis or maybe even tell-tale evidence that she had an 'accident' in her pants. Can you tell I'm not a fan of tattoos? I'm glad Kynt and Vyxsin didn't get eliminated. I had a feeling, since there hadn't been a nonelimination round yet, that this might be the time, so it was a relief to see them get another chance. It will be interesting to see how this new 'speed-bump' twist affects the race on the next episode.
