You want to see KNITTING?

On a KNITTING blog?

are you CRAZY?!?!!?

Yeah, I know there hasn’t been a whole lot of knitting content ’round these parts. This week, I can safely say it’s because I’ve done no knitting!!!


WTF, right?

The craziest part about that is I have NO GOOD REASON WHATSOEVER!

I’m off from the yarn store this week in order to fill in for the girl who normally does the midday spot (10a-3p baby, listen to me at work!!!), which means I have LOADS AND LOADS of free time!

(loads and loads might be an exagerration. What I mean to say is that I have normal-people free time, where you get up in the morning, grab coffee, go to work, come home, and have the night freeeeeeeeee! I LOVE IT! :) )

You must be wondering, “If you’re not KNITTING, what the hell are you DOING with all this supposed free time?”

Well? Um…lesse:

  • Napping. Highly underrated.
  • Watching deliberately and depressingly manipulative movies on ABC Family that star Jennifer Love Hewitt. Oh yes, you bet your ASS I cried.
  • Getting lured to really lame parties at bars in MALLS. I so should have stayed home and folded laundry.
  • GOING TO THE GYM! Ok, I only went ONCE this week so far, and it’s TOTALLY nullified by the bullet point below, but I STILL WENT!
  • Baking cupcakes! mmmmmm. cuupcaaaaaakes.


    Thankfully, we were smart enough to take 20 of our 24 cupcakes to work where the cupcake vultures snatched them up REAL quick :)

I guess I just haven’t FELT like knitting. I take it out… I sit it next to me on the couch… but then? Nothing.


We can look at pictures of my NON-progress though, I guess… :)


(in case you are thinking Hayley is being loving and sweet there, let me set you straight and inform you that she is trying to EAT my addi turbos. Apparently, I will SHOVE the cat aside to save my addis, shouting things like “HAYLEY! GET YOUR DAMN FANGS OFF THAT! DO YOU KNOW HOW EXPENSIVE THOSE ARE!?!?)

The stripes are getting a tad fun-kay, though. See the funkiness?

I’ll have to keep going to see how it turns out, but I’m a tad worried. Then again, you EITHER see the foot OR the ankle, rarely both at the same time, soooo, it’s all good. (don’t argue with me, I need my rationalizations!!!)

I’m also working on my roomie’s Hanukkah scarf. Yes, I am aware that Hanukkah ended forever ago. I gave it to her wrapped up on the needles on the 5th night and she is patiently awaiting its completion :) I’d say I’m a wee bit over half done with it at this point.

It’s a “My So-Called Scarf” in Manos.

This weekend, Chelsea and I are going to see Colin Meloy at the Birchmere. Both will be a first for me (Colin and the Birchmere), so it should be a good time…maybe there will even be cute boys there! WOO!

Happy Weekend!

    Vibey! Your cupcakes look so yummy! Have you seen ?? I could eat cupcakes all DAY!

    I went to the gym this week, too. Once. =p

    Enjoy the Birchmere!

    She’s alive!! (You didn’t think to bring the cupcakes down here for lil ol’ me? LOL) I miss you this week sweetie! I wouldn’t worry about the funkay-ness of the striping, you’re right – you’ll mostly only see one or the other.

    See, the thing about this knitting business is that it’s supposed to be fun (well, holiday knitting doesn’t really count in that particular rule) and if you don’t want to knit right now, we still love you. It doesn’t take away your knitter status, you’re just “on a break” (just don’t start crocheting instead of knitting – that would be questionable behavior). Have a great weekend and by the way – those cupcakes look yummy!

    Oooh- napping and cupcakes. Sounds good to me. :)

    Ha ha, I listened to you a bit on the radio today while I was at work. Very cool to hear you. (OMG… do I sound like a stalker, I’m really not I swear)

    Vibe most certainly does love her cupcakes.I don’t know where she puts them after she eats them though. I take one look at them (w/o eating one) and I gain 10 lbs.

    *Gasp* Colin! There will be cute boys there…in addition to the one on stage ;)

    And I like the “My So Called Scarf”. I’m printing out the pattern as I type this. As if I need more scarves.

    Jaywalkers are looking great! I love the wonkiness. All of my pairs have some kind of wonkiness. Makes them special.

    I’ve had that my so called scarf pattern and the freaking yarn for over a year now. Have I made it? What do you think? Yours looks great though.

    I will be listening today! YAY!

    Wait juuuust a minute! I see the real problem!! It’s that book over there under “now reading”!!! That very same book halted my knitting progresss for almost a week!! I blogged about it too, you bet i did. ;)

    Hey, I surfed on you blog by way of the Jaywalker KAL. I am also knitting a jaywalker with STR Pebble beach and my sock was striping nicely until i passed the heel and gusset and then it was pooling all the way until decreasing for the toes. I still love my socks though. It gives it character.
