Yay! I finally got my invite to ravelry!!!! Just in time for the weekend. Maybe this will give me a good excuse to organize me stash!!! I think I should remember the mantra, if I'm too embarassed to post it on ravelry maybe it should not be taking up room in my apartment. Yeah, I'm taking to you tutti-frutti boucle!

Must go do work instead of play online. Really!

Crazed Knitting Girl

Crazy Knitting Girl

So my folks picked up this poster for a french yarn company at a recent auction. And instantly I had an connection with her. She has brown frizzy hair, chubby cheeks, speaks french, is knitting and is just a wee bit possessed. And I know under that cute dress and she has short stubby legs. Stick a giant bow on my head and we could be twins!

Forgive the not so great picture, I was eager to make her into an avatar (yeah, I'm a geek) and since my mom had not gotten around to taking her picture for their site yet and my dad went out and snagged the photo the auction place used. Trust me Mom's photo would have been much better!

Since I don't have my french-english dictionary handy I am currently using the internet to figure out exactly what it says. (My huge dictionary is at home, the remnants of being a french major). Oddly enough what I thought was a poster for a brand of wool seems to be for scottish(as in the nationality) wool. Maybe that is the name of the wool. The phrase on the diagonal means "non-shrinking wool", so I guess it's superwash? Then along the bottom it says "Ask for our wool in fine stores".

My parents had bought the poster to sell but my mom has offered to give her to me (I do have a birthday coming up...) but I am not sure if I would want to see her crazed eyes staring at me every day. I have to think about it.

Playing Giant

This is a quick and silly post but this project makes me smile and since I have had a crap-tastic day so far anything anything that makes me smile is a good thing.

Saturday was freakishly hot here. What's it doing being mid-90s in September when earlier in the week it was like 60? It was clearly too hot to work on a wool scarf which is my current project while watching a Netflix movie.

So last week, I came across a too cute pattern and I remembered I had a really small ball of Koigu as a remainder from a project 2 years ago. Not enough to do anything real with but just enough to do this. Yes, it's technically a Christmas ornament but it was also just too cute! I just had to make a teeny hanger too!
