So this story starts with ice cream:
That’s Betty and her daughter Shauna. Before we even got to A Wool Gathering we hit up Young’s.
Then there were some tents:
Which involved bunnies:
Also alpaca’s that like to get funky:
I got some yarn:
We went on a hike.
We saw Dave Chappelle’s very long driveway and possibly his trashcans…?
The day ended with more (gigglier) ice cream! Does it get any better than this?

So I’m tooling around my new flickr homepage (if you haven’t already, enable it!) and I get totally crazed the second I realize that I can view my photostreams STATS.
STATS! people. One of the STATS that they have is how people get to your photos in the first place. A majority of my views come from flickr itself, which is pretty obvious and makes sense. However a couple of views came from a totally wacked out website:
We Feel Fine.
You need to check this out. (If you haven’t already because I’m usually pretty slow on these trendy things.) So I searched through my photos to see how many times I had the word ‘feel’ or ‘feeling’ in a description.
This one is because that sidewalk feels weird.
In this one I felt like a doll.
However, when I went to the We Feel Fine website it really kind of terrified me because it reminded me of the movie Suicide Club. Has anyone seen that movie??! Because as I was staring at the dots swarming around I thought: I know what the dots really mean.
Besides that this was kind of fun. What’s another good word to search for in a flickr photostream? Have? Want? Need? Don’t you think this could be kind of a cool completely time absorbing sort of game? Oh internet, how did I waste my life away before you?
Oh yeah, that’s right, TV.
Sometimes I stumble upon random cool amigurumi things on Ravelry:
Then I get to clicking around and I find out that I’m pretty much in love with everything Deadcraft has ever crocheted:
(Jamie and Adam)
(Leia and Han)
(Hank and Dean)
Pretty spiffy, yeah? (Double posted, hope your reader doesn’t get slammed o.O sorry)

So I took a Mystery Sock class at Temptations about a month (or two) ago… and I’ve finally finished the first mitten!
(It was Christmas in July, so at least I got it done before real Christmas, you know?)
I love the yarn, I think the pattern is cute… However, the nub is bothering me. Top right. That’s definitely a nubbin of some sort. It gives me a twitch when I look at it. I’m all like: good good good- nub?!
So I’m wondering if I should even make the second one. I have the yarn for the second one… I kind of want to make a pair of mittens but I’m not sure if it should be these mittens. Thoughts? Opinions?
Also, here’s a picture of John in, I swear, the only shirt he’s wanted for a year. Why do people make it so hard to buy clothes? Why do people wear clothes at all?
