Actual Knitting Content Ahead

Finished my July pair, nothing special, just k3p1 rib on the leg. My brain needed a rest and an easy project while we worked on getting real jobs and moving. :D Here they are, a prayer knit into every stitch.

Online Supersocke in ??? can't find the ballband since the move, got the yarn from a SP on LiveJournal, thanks Amanda!
Started in June and finished on July 12

Forgive the bad pic, had to tweak the colors to let you see the socks at all. It rains all the time here, or so it would seem.

And, a secrit project for a seekrit pal. This pal doesn't know I have a blog, so I'm safe. Plus, by the time she sees it, she'll know my name. :D

A Stash Bunny!

Bunny in the stash basket

Le bunny has cedar bits inside him. So you can sit him in your stash and he'll keep the buggies away. I made him with leftover sock yarn bits and I dum dum dummm, crocheted him. :D I've gone over to the dark side, and it's not so dark. I loved making the little guy. I could see my crocheting more stuffies in the future, not so much for the knitting of them. Crochet is forgiving, you can just make it up as you go, sorta. And I just kinda made this guy up. I based him off a lion brand pattern, best bunny, but I don't follow written directions worth a crap. I looked at the pic and made it look like that, even if I didn't so much follow what the words said.

And now I'm on to another pair of socks. This time on 2s. Whoa these babies fly. I'm using the Broadripple pattern from Knitty and some yarn my SP9 sp sent me, thanks TeAntae! I know you meant it to be a scarf, I just couldn't bring myself to not make socks out of it, it's my frist Claudia Handpaints. I lOOOOve this yarn. It's sooo smooshie.

I don't think so

I just read the Yarn Harlot's blog for today and I'm very angry. I wrote both of our Senators as soon as I read the story. You should. If you don't know what I'm talking about go here and read this. I could stroke. I hope this guy gets raped some time in the future and has to describe the event as sex. And I cannot believe this. We have to edit our language because some words are too inflammatory? How can someone be accused of rape and not have this charge read in court? You can't use the word he's accused of...umm...hello!? Next thing murderes are simply going to be, I dunno, disgruntled humans who poke other humans? You know, with sharp pointy things.

So go, speak out, let them hear from you. You can no longer find the Lincoln Nebraska judicial site. It gives you a 404 not found error. Soo, it looks like folks have been hitting Mr. Judge Butthead pretty hard. I wish they'd hit him with something harder, like sense.

I'm it, April 9

Here is something cool, I was tagged by LaurieC

The rules: Go to Wikipedia and type in your birth month and date (mine is Sept 4th), then post 3 events, 2 births and a holiday. Then tag 5 others, I'm not much for tagging, but I pick Mrs. B and anyone else who'd like to play along. :D

193 - Septimius Severus is proclaimed Roman Emperor by the army in Illyricum (in the Balkans). [Totally thinking of Snape when I read this one!]

1413 - Henry V is crowned King of England. [Love ya Shakespeare and your Historical self! I read Henry IV and V in my Shakes II class]

2003 - 2003 invasion of Iraq: Baghdad, Iraq falls to American forces. [Thanks Dubya, we're still stuck over there]

1926 - Hugh Hefner, American editor and publisher, founder of Playboy [Yeah baby!]

1981 - Eric Harris, Columbine High School shooter (d. 1999) [I could have been this nutjob! EEK!]

Day of National Unity- (ეროვნული ერთიანობის დღე), an annual public holiday in Georgia. [Not my GA, but GA all the same :D ]


Yep. Tha's me. I'm back in the world of the connected. We've been online since sometime last week, but I've been in hiding. I guess I'm just spending my time wallowing in this nice new apt. It is a castle man. We have SOOO much more room (we've already filled it up to the brim and have a just purchased coffee table under our bed). Don't ask me how the world we lived in a studio, I can't even begin to tell you. But we're back, unpacked, and settled in.

The boy cooked some yummy salmon tonight, our first real, not a hot dog or sammich meal. :P We have eaten a LOT of Fox's pizza. We can't afford it, but we did it all the same. This not having a job thing and thereby no paycheck and no money thing is for the birds. The ones who aren't afraid to eat out of garbage cans or the gutter. :P

And The Fuzzy Peach is open again, buy it up so I can ruin our new kitchen with the dyes. :D I just can't stand to have white counter tops and a spotless floor!
