Proof of Knit

I miss you guys.

I feel like we never ‘talk’!

So sad!

So, I was sitting here, thinking about what I wanted to tell you.

I could talk about how we watch Lifetime movies even when we know better and then wish there was a way we could get our two hours back…

I could talk about how doing the BACKWARD lunge walk, facing Laurent, and holding his hands puts me in a *very* compromising position approximately every two seconds for what seems like an unbearable amount of time.

I could talk about how much I {{heart}} Keane.


I could talk about how, last Tuesday, I had seven boys in my apartment or how one of them was trying on my clothes while another wore a clean kitty littler bag on his head as a do-rag.

How ’bout how I really wanna learn how to play guitar, and I met a guy who can teach me, but I don’t wanna call him to ask because he liiiiikes me.


How ’bout how I think THIS guy actually ASKED ME OUT over email on Friday…(and how I’m so impressed he’d have the guts to ask, that I’m considering saying yes!)

Naaahhh… I’m not going to talk about *any* of that!

I promised knitting, and knitting you shall receive!!!!

First, proof I’ve actually been knitting!

I’ve been semi-diligently working on secret baby project #1 for a few weeks now… I probably would be farther along except 1) I’m a tad lazy and 2) I ran into a snag or two.

Turns out seed stitch is not as mindless for me as I thought.

After the *second* time I somehow ended up with ribbing instead of seeds (don’t ask me! Maybe it’s a contact high off of whatever my crazy-ass cat is smokin’), Holly took pity on me…

My Hero!!

Fixing seed stitch is more of a bitch than I thought, ESPECIALLY that EDGE stitch! Holly is truly a better woman than I… Look at her handy work:

She thinks this looks wonky…
I say, “WONKY, MY ASS!”

So now I’m up to the part of the project that involves evil intarsia and Im all scurred of it, so I keep putting it off. HOWEVER, it *would* be nice to have this done for when the baby is born — which is like, ANY SECOND — so maybe I oughtta bust out and work on it, yes?

The other thing I’ve been working on is this:


I knit them in the Tess’ Angora/Merino I bought at MDS$W from a pattern in Last Minute Knitted Gifts :)


Don’t you just wanna eat them?!

What? You wanna see what these fuzzy pink feet are attached to? Hrm…


I guess all that doesn’t amount to much (except a WHOLE LOTTA PINK!), but hey, at least I’m knittin’, right? WOO!!!

Friday is the first ever Mid Mid-Meetup Meetup (MM-MM) MOVIE NIGHT! What’s showing?



The Pirate Movie and XANADU!


Hopefully, we’ll ‘chat’ before then though

    Um, first of all. XANADU. Hell Yes.

    Lifetime movies would be okay if we could hang out with knitting friends (especially ones that live far away) and knit while watching.

    And baby feet are SO SO SO CUTE!

  2. Rossana Says:

    Sweet baby and way cute pink booties! Hmmm…now I wanna knit some angora booties, too!

  3. Anne Marie Says:

    Oh Xanadu.

  4. Anne Marie Says:

    And also, those are the absolute cutest baby feet in those baby booties. I felt that yarn up at Sheep and Wool, I think. It’s fancy pants.

  5. heather Says:

    I love me some crazy b movies. Although Barbarella is the shizznit. :) yay. I remember flirting with boys. Sigh*

    I love those booties! I’m so crazy about babies!

  6. Anne Marie Says:

    And also, if you go back out with that guy, I WILL COME UP THERE AND STEAL ALL OF YOUR YARN. And bonk you in the nose. Even I wouldn’t go out with him after that other horrible date and I am both desparate and pathetic. And also old. And I have a skinstache. And a boob hair.

  7. Anne Marie Says:

    And also, what the hell is that thing next to your television? Is it an Easter egg tree? Easter is over baby. Time to put up the tree.

    Back when Xanadu came out I thought I was the coolest kid around with my praire skirt, legwarmers and of course those ribbon barettes – just like Olivia Newton John. I still get excited when I see that movie on tv. Loved The Pirate Movie just for Chris Atkins. (I blame it on the fact I was young.)

  9. jessica~ Says:

    Awwwe! Both the Baby Head and the Baby Feet are too cute for words!!

  10. Liz Says:

    Awww. She is so cute! Love the little feets!

  11. Bagger Says:

    I LOVED XENA THE WARRIOR PRIN…cess..that’s not what you guys are talking about. Uh…ok. And now, comment 11…

  12. Jenny Says:

    A PLACE! Where nobody dared to go
    The love that we came to know
    they called it Xanadu…

    That baby is the cutest. ever.

    Great job on your knitting. Don’t be scared of intarsia. WTF am I saying, be scared!!! But you can do it. ;-)

  13. Sarah Says:

    MM-MM-MN! YAY! I’m so excited – it will be fun!
    (I am sad to see that The Pirate Movie is not getting the comment love that Xanadu is experiencing, but I guess it’s more of a niche film… or just not as many people ever saw it. Oh, well. You will muchly love it.)

  14. Sarah Says:

    Oh, and babies are really small, aren’t they. Those booties were tiny, and look at how perfectly they fit!

  15. frecklegirl Says:

    Those baby pictures are sooo great… the little booties! eee!

  16. Silvia Says:

    Oh heavens to betsey, chica. Not that guy again! Can you afford to go out with him? Do you really want your brother leaving you long comments about this dude’s obvious unsuitability? Up to you, though I vote no. The guy with the kitty litter bag on his head sounds like a keeper though.

    Those baby booties are cute, but that baby is truly edible!

  17. Stacey Says:

    Oh how I miss your posts :)

    Not that I am picking on you for your lack of blogging time…cause I’m not much better these days.

  18. Jennifer H. Says:

    Xanadu & The Pirate Movie? You have great taste in movies! OMG, I had the biggest crush on the Pirate King as a girl…it’s still one of my favorite flicks.

    “Avon calling!, mmmm…”

    The booties are beautiful and the baby is precious!
