They are out of their Vulcan minds....

I swear when I saw this in the adult beverage section of the grocery store it had to be a mistake. I also thought it looked like something I might find in the bubble bath section at Target. You must take a look and tell me your thoughts. Oh, and by the way...the stuff is not cheap, around $12.00 each.

There is a large little hat that shall remain pictureless. Some of you saw me working on it at the last Sunday SnB. Let's just say making that thing turned into the worst idea on the planet. Here are the reasons, bear with me, list's are big these days and I am a bandwagon jumper...

  1. "FUGLY"...."thanks Clare and Tevana and Carlin for NOT saying anything," Danielle said, in a very sarcastic way.
  2. Scratchier then "Scotts Brand" toiletpaper on a baby's bottom
  3. HUGE. It fit me with room and it was supposed to be for a 4 year old.

I ended up making this hat instead: (I used "Ricochet" by Moda Dea. I'm happy with the results. I took a cockeyed picture, it really is shaped much better then this and it WILL fit a four year old)

I took a little trip to Echo Park's very own "third world yarn store/magazine stand" the other day and I bought a few balls of my favorite Mexican yarn...

Currently, i'm using the red for a scarf for me to wear on Thanksgiving...i'm making it using the "Arabesque stitch" the camera user (me) couldn't quite capture the stitch pattern very well but here it is anyway:

and the chocolate brown will be used for a scarf/holiday present made using this pattern.

I almost forgot....

You know what I did today?

Today I feel like a...

Off kilter

Dixie wrote a blog entry over at Blog Coven that I found extremely provocative. In fact, it answered a lot of "whys" for me . The other day I thought to myself that Mercury had to be in retrograde because of all the weirdness happening to me lately...I think that I prefer to go with her Mars theory instead. Things are so out of sorts I even did a Rune reading for the first time in years. It was right on. Here's what it looked like:

I'm getting nervous about the holiday projects so I'm trying to do things that take no time. The people that they are for do not crochet or knit so they have absolutely no concept of how long or short of a time they take. I feel like I'm duping the commoners. Oh well. The sham will continue.

My Grandmother commented about a week or so ago, using her best Jewish guilt, about how she would love to have another scarf for the cooler weather. Here's the part that got me...I think she feels like why would people, grandchildren included, want to do things for her out of the goodness of their hearts? She offered to pay me for it! I feel so cheap. Like a Crochet Whore...I told her to leave the money on the nightstand.

Happy "All Saints Day "

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween... Carlin ended up having a very popular costume. So much so that she was receiving full size candy bars :-)
