Oh, my achin' skull


Okay, because I love you folks, I will share something special with you. If you are trying to "figure out" entrelac (you know, because you're the only person capable of doing so), DO NOT think that an amaretto sour will somehow aid in the process. I don't know if it's the amaretto or the math that's making my head hurt now, but something needs to stop killing me. Oh wait... cedar is in full effect here. Argh, I need to move to a less allergen-y area.


to make a long and boring story short and somewhat interesting, I will tell you that I *did* get the hang of it, but my squares are somewhat oddly shaped, and I didn't really follow the very strict guidelines set forth by the gay french gods of entrelac, so they're all wonky, like little gnome hats made by little drunk gnomes.

But hey, internet! I did get the hang of it. Okay, not "it" in "it's" entirety, but I did get the hang of knitting the base triangles, and hey, that's important, right? Remember folks, I taught myself how to knit from a book. FROM THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL STORE! And this was just a year ago, so hey, cut me some slack. Damn internet, back off.

I'd post some pics of the hat I just finished, but it was kinda boring. I do have some neat pics of the bind off of the scarf that I gave Rich's mom for X-Mess, but they're actually not neat and are rather boring. Surriously. So yeah... I'll work on entrelac some more, and then maybe I'll post some pictures, okay Internet? Okay. See ya later. Apropos of nothing, here are some super fine ladies in hats, enjoy!

If you're asking yourself "Self, WWJD?" the answer is "hit it."

Frankly, I'm much more inclined to ask myself, "WWJJD?" (What Would Joan Jett Do?) You get SO much more leeway that way. And leeway is fun.

A belated welcome to knitblogging.

You are sooooooooooo darn funny. I am not sure how I landed on your blog, no doubt doing random stalkings of people who post to other blogs that I read.

You are a day brightener and provided me with many laugh out loud moments today as I read your blog. I just wanted so say thanks--I look forward to seeing where your mind ventures next.

:o)

Your entrelac looks better than mine, having never tried it.

I think you may have picked up the stitches wrong, however. If you were looking for some bitchy queen to make a comment. Other than that, nice use of yarn.

Oh and that's quite the pose on your profile. {EG}

RE: The rainbow project/willie warmer.

I guess I should have added a few details. I found the pattern online by Googling--I won't even list the search terms I used to come up with this link.

Dangle Bits? Can it get any better than that?

I used size 7 needles and Lion Brand Yarn's Micro Spun. Soft as hell--although I wouldn't be the expert on what is the best for comfort. :o)
