Blog resolution…

I should totally make a resolution to blog every day of 2011. um, no. First the knitting.  This is the yarn Mr. Magoo wants a pair of socks out of, but currently it’s making a beret/tam so he has to wait.  This means that everytime he sees it, he tries to bring it to me …

Kiss my ASS 2010!

I didn’t get noise makers for tonight.  Why?  Cause I hate noise makers.  I did  get Christmas crackers for the 25th and we didn’t get the cheap £1 ones from Poundland either!  These ones came with fancy crowns and everything! The problem with Christmas crackers is that they are so fun that it’s almost impossible …

Knitting IS my therapy.

IMG_0886 Originally uploaded by allycupe I’m knitting up a storm here in cold, dark, rainy Germany. I am just finishing up a delightful pair of socks for Elijah. I really like the way these knit up.

Why everyone should knit.

Knitting in the frozen tundra

It is minus 35 degrees Celsius outside today, and minus 46 with the windchill.  For my american readers that’s REALLY FUCKING COLD degrees fairenheit.  I do believe that my left nipple fell off as I was walking the dog… poor Frankie is slightly confused why his pee is frozen in a stream before he’s even …

Blatant plagarism.

So Marin made a list of things she learned in 2007.  I read it and decided that not only did she learn WAY more than me but that stealing her idea for a post could then become one  thing I learned in 2008.   I’m lucky she’s my friend, she’s so pretty…. If you tell people …
