Why, zank you darlink!
So I’m supposed to now link to four blogs that I love. Well, I love way more than four, but I think rising to the top are the blogs of my knitter-partners-in-crime, the swell gals in my knitting group.
although Orata moved away to silly ‘ol Wisconsin. Pbbbt. That’s the sad part of living in a college town, though. You make lots of nice friends, then they finish school and move away (or in Orata’s case, her boyfriend finishes school). I have TONS of friends all over the country, but only a few here. Sad.
But speaking of friends in other places, I get to meet the nice awarder herself, Carrie, this weekend! I’m going to Palo Alto for a conference, but we’re going to knock over a couple of yarn stores together too. Yay!
Thing two (or things two, I should say)
‘Tis the time of year for weenie monsters.
I think that second one is the weirdest weenie monster I’ve ever made. I like her, although she doesn’t really stand up so straight. The blub is quite fond of Numero Uno up there. I do like his tentacles. And you can’t tell in that picture, but he has four arms. I imagine they’ll come in quite handy.
Happy Mole Day! This wasn’t a forgotten thing. How could I, of all people, forget that?
Oh yeah. I had a blogiversary. In September. Whups. It was number two. So I’m celebrating with something poopy.
My Shetland triangle shawl. It’s made of Joseph Galler prime alpaca, in nutmeg. And try as I might, I cannot wear this around my neck. It itches the shit out of me. So…anybody want it? I’ll throw in the remainder of the yarn as well. I won’t lie; I have worn this a couple of times. But I’d love to wash it and re-block it and send it to a happy home.
If you fancy this scarf, just leave me a comment with your favorite poo joke. If you don’t know a poo joke, just say ‘poo’ a few times. I’ll pick someone at random on uuummmmm, next Tuesday. That’s October 28th. Hopefully it won’t be as poopy for someone else as it’s been for me.
