Quit buggin’ me May 24, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — katy @ 8:20 am

It feels like it has been a while since I posted.  Thank you for all of the birthday wishes for my mom.  Granny backed out on us but with good reason.  My mom got a ton of Manos.  I must photograph her latest throw.  It is goregous.  I feel a fight brewing with my sister over these.  I bought a bit of the discontinued Mission Falls cotton and a skein of Berroco Plush for Ugg booties.  Not too bad but I think I need to stop buying yarn for a while.  It feels like it’s at addiction status.  Maybe workout more and buy yarn less. 

Mountain_mohair_bslp I have been working on the little Green Mountain Spinnery sweater I bought at Maryland Sheep and Wool.  It is knitting up pretty quickly.  Sleeves and neck are all that is left.  Ann, Peggy and Ricki thought the color was a bit feminine so I bought some Lamb’s Pride Worsted in a more masculine color.  I still think the blue is okay but it was 3 against 1.  This will be a gift for Molly, the daughter of Kevin’s twin.  The darkness of the yarn is hiding what little cable detail there is. 

Here and there I have been working on end of the year scarves.  What can I say, I appreciate the teachers more than I hate knitting with novelty yarns.  So, I won’t bore you with those details.  Last week was Flower Picture Week or something like that.  I didn’t participate ’cause I am that kind of rebel.  Instead I say show your Flower Eating Insect Week.

    Ick, ew, ick, eeeeewwwwww. I don’t miss the banana slugs in Oregon — 6″ long, green and slimy and EEEWWWWWW. Ick.

    A slug! ewww! Have you ever stepped on one in bare feet! Totally gross!

    If we’re bringing out the bugs, I’ve got lots of picture ammo!

    Would love to see some pictures of your Mom’s Manos throws! Does she blog? I’ve been thinking of making a new throw for my husband – the one I made him is too small already – yes he’s a growing boy!

    EEEEEW! Gross! But to be fair, as a young child I used to poke the slugs out of the holes in bricks and then feed them to my three pet chickens: Mashed Potato, Gravy and Jelly Bean. No wonder they eventually became supper, eh? ;-p

    Eeuuuwwww! That must be why I stay out of the garden. Not really, it’s the dirt, can’t stand it. Love the sweater, which pattern is it?

    Well, you’re in a mood. Is it the weather? Wishing and hoping you have blue skies soon.

  7. Oh, but he’s so cute!

    LOL! we get those too…just be weary where you walk, it is tottal yikes to tred on one.
    What is wrong with a feminine for a girl? anyway I love the color.

    I love the cabling on the sweater and I very much dislike the bug/slug picture. Actually I found a small version in our yard this weekend…yick yuck…I want to see the manos throws too!

    you crazy rebel —- can’t wait to see what bug picture you post tomorrow!

    ps. I would like to add that the picture is not completely reflecting the true color. That yarn has a definite violet overtone.

    Well, there we go again. You’re the third person today that I have felt was living in a parallel universe with me. I’m laughing my ass off about the slug, because MY idea today (I somehow just missed realizing about flower week last week, not that I had much in bloom anyway, until it was over), was to suggest that we show our garden uglies/winter-killed stuff, etc. (I’m sick, I know!) I know some people would be hard-pressed to have anything to show, living where they live, but boy, we were hard-hit this year. I’ve lost several shrubs, and they’re hideous right now. What a shame.

    I love it (the slug AND the sweater)!

  13. Joy Says:

    Whatta great slug! and I don’t think I’ve ever uttered those words in my life. Which Green mt. spinnery sweater are you making? I made one of the raglans with handspun and loved it.

    Ick! what is that??? It looks like a snail without the little snail shell thingy.
