Lots of...

...socks. That's right. I've finished 3 more pairs since I last posted. That's right...pairs, not single socks, though, there are some of those, too. I probably should take some pictures and post them, but I've been having a lot of issues with my laziness. You understand.

Thank you for enjoying this post,

Wow. I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this:

Very creative? Hahahha...check it out and get yours on etsy.

Make sure you check out his other items for sale, including his kind of totally awesome Jake Gyllenhaal knits.

I don't know what my problem is, but I really want one of these when they come out:

Apparently, Cingular will make you sign on for another 2 years to get it, but DAMN - look at this thing!!!!

My birthday.

I had an absolutely fabulous birthday. It was possibly the best one I've ever had, to tell you the truth. Jake planned a dinner for me at the Gerst Haus, and it was just fantastic. From start to finish. Oh, yes, there was plenty of sausage eating, don't you worry:

That's my friend, Brooke, who made me the best birthday cake I'd ever had:

I mean, really! Take a look at this thing!! Just awesome. The yarn ball is made of rice krispie treats and covered in delicious yarn frosting. Of course, this was as close as I'd ever get to eating yarn (oh, the joy), so I had to dive in:

The needles weren't as tasty, but I ate them anyway:

Good Lord, what was up with that eye makeup? Never again. Anyway, Jake ate some of the yarn ball, too, and then sat there with it in his mustache for a while:

He slow danced with me to the polka music after pretty much everyone had left, though, so he's still #1 in my book.

Flash your stash!

Oh, you didn't mean that kind? Sorry.

I know I'm terribly far behind, and Socktoberfest was on October, but really, in life, it's better late than never. So, I'm gonna flash my stash. Here's the first part:

That would be last bit of the reds, moving into the pinks, moving into the oranges, moving into the yellows, moving into the greens. Yes, it is organized by color. Just like my closet. And the pantry. Just kidding about the pantry. Here's the next part:

Here we have the blues, moving to the purples, moving to the purple-pinks. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of the whites, moving to the tans, moving back to the whites, turning into the pinks and reds. Someday, I'll rememdy that.

I have all of my yarny bidness in these lovely shelves:

Of course, this picture was taken right after the room was painted and the shelves were assembed (more details here).

More to come...thank you for enjoying this post,

The Nashville Knitting Meetup

I am happy to report that the first meeting of The Nashville Knitting Meetup was a success!! For those of you who don't know about what I'm talking about, check it out:

Here's the calendar:

We will be meeting weekly on Tuesday nights. Last night, we were at Portland Brew, which was a touch small, so I am now considering what our options are as far as a different venue. Any ideas are welcome!!

What is up with all the stars posing with fish lips? Seriously, enough is enough. This doesn't make anyone look sexier, it just makes them look like dorks. Prime exampe:

And another:

Totally unnecessary.

And I'm fairly sure this is natural, but still. How can anyone really find these crazy lips all that attractive?:

Put those lips away, I say!

I mean, does it make this average woman look sexier?:

I didn't think so.

Okay, I think I'm done.
