Well, if you’ve been wondering where I’ve been or if I’ve been swept away by my super secret knitting society… well I’ll let you know, it’s not knitting that’s completely grabbed my attention and taken me from you (I know- blasphemy!) it’s Learn and Play.
So, I’m going to link you up to my Learn and Play blog and if you’re bored you can give it a looksy and if you hate me for abandoning you, I’m sorry.
They forced me. At gun point. They forced me to play on the internet at work and get paid for it and I tried to fight it, I swears. (Plus I’m helping other people learn about the internet and that’s like my life’s goal.) Because I can’t leave you without a picture and I don’t have many of my own at this moment, I want to show you a hat I think I want to make for myself this winter:
Chain Chomp Hat! Check the pattern here. How awesome is that? I could totally rock that hat.
Also, this Piranha Plant is super bitchin:
Again, I’m sorry. It’s not that I love you any less… and if I could just sit down and finish my lace. Oh yeah right, who am I kidding? Lace is KILLING ME. Remember the lace face? I almost cried lace tears the other night.

When THE BABY is here, everything stops- including time.
Maybe we should sell him to the government- I’m sure they could use such a powerful weapon.
I have had some real serious crap on my mind lately. However in the midst of all of that I keep having the same debate pop up in my head, so I’m going to open it up to you people out there:
Most Successful Hype Man?
Flava Flav? or…
It’s such a hard decision. I mean, I’m pretty sure Lil Jon makes a boat load of bills every time he utters the word “Yeah”. However, Flav is well, Flav… He had two (maybe even three?) seasons of a bunch of hussies wanting to be his, woman? wife? escort for life? I was always kind of confused what they were competing for- at one point I thought it was chicken. Apparently that was just a bonus.
Still, while this is a battle for the ages, I think we can all agree on:
Least Successful (Lamest) Hype Man EVER:
Fred Schneider from the B-52′s. Although some people would argue that he has a fancy German word (sprechgesang) for what he does and that he’s not in fact a hype man- I’m calling him out. HA!
Even when my mind gets tangled and troubled though, I’ve got to remind myself that at least I’m not in the Boo Box. What’s that? The boo box Smee.
(pictures link back to their sources.)
There aren’t any words for poor little Friedrick’s profound sadness or deep feelings of rampant… angst. Wherever he goes something always seems to rain on his parade!
Rainycloud from Mochimochiland. I honestly didn’t think I would get this guy done in time for the contest… however, I(‘m pretty sure I) did. I even felted him! (Although he looks a little, well, I’ll use the word lumpy but you can guess what I’m thinking the cloud kind of looks like o_O) This was also my first time using safety eyes, so I learned something from this experience too. I’m loving this little guy.
Another wonderful figure taken from my head and made a reality by:
Fun fact: knit while watching Sweeney Todd (so it’s nice and angstified) and Firefly (which is a whole different angry story).
