What's my line...

Yup, that's one of the boys, caught at juuuuust the right moment...imagine what I'll do to my kids..."No, honey...I PROMISE I won't bring in THAT picture of YOU when I come talk to your class for Career Day..."

I posted this on the Knitty board to see what creative captions would come to the silly, and generally twisted minds of the members.  What's the first thing that comes to your mind? 

You can post yours in the comments.

We now interrupt your weekend...

Music is playing, dishwasher, washer and dryer are singing along and I can see my floor! Spring cleaning is well underway here today. The weather is just so gloomy, as usual for this area. I guess I got spoiled with the previous 10 days of sunshine. Weather report says it will rain for the next 10. Time to dust off my "I hate gray weather" face...I need to move. Love the area, hate the weather.

On the relocation front, a few kind souls have given their input on the best location. So far, Oregon, North Carolina and Vancouver are the front runners.

Knitting will resume once the place is officially tidy, the extra has been freecycled and a feeling of inner contentment over my nesting accomplishments washes over me.

And another day passes

That was it. The last "t" crossed and "I" dotted and I'm glad of it. Short break ahead and I'm itching for a road trip with winding green roads and blue sky.

Frogged Branching out again. For once it would be nice to get through something sans frogging. I tried to tick my way out but, as this was my first lace project, it was a bit hard.
On the bright side....The yarn looked like coiled curling ribbon...Oh yeah, that's not necessarily a good

I think I'll take the night off and knit tomorrow.
Mantra...I will knit 5 repeats, I will knit 5 repeats, I will...blah, blah, blah.

PS...Have you seen the new KnitPicks cotton yarns? I want some! I have an order in my head that will have to wait a few weeks as I decide what I want to do with them. Maybe a few baby kimonos, a jumper for my niece and another for my might-as-well-be-my niece. Nephew will get a bright red cotton/wool sweater with his favorite logo du-jour. I think Thomas is passe' and he's on to....hmmm....Have to ask the sis about that.

That Bad Penny is on the chair mocking me...

Movin' on...

The new Knitty Spring came out and I've been waiting for things to settle down a bit before starting anything. Only three more days and then I can get back to turning these WIPs into FOs. As is stands, I have Bad Penny and Wavy on the needles. These will be completed first as there are already halfway there. Branching out will be next and I'm contemplating two very special things with that patterns...more on that as it happens. Promise. Oops! Sorry, I forgot about I DO. So pretty!

Soleil will be the next top I attempt and Alexandra, the designer, is working on a sleeved version which she will make available for purchase on her site.

So much to do and I'm on the hunt for some great yarns and a few recycling opportunities. I'm thinking of taking apart my favorite sweater in the hopes of knitting it back to life in a similar form. More on it's progress later.

One of the Knitty Board members had a great idea...flash your stash, yup all of it for one day. My digital decided not to play and so my flash is "delayed" but hoping to get that going this weekend.

So, thank you to Zibibbo for a fabulous way to unite us all for a day of "FIBEROTICA"!

Mark the date
April 1st of next year
