My people tell me that you are looking for a body double, I think that I am the man for the job. I look great in heels and I will do anything to get out of the one horse town for awhile and away from the rest of my crazy family. I enjoy singing (although my voice is changing) and dance well.
I have included three head shots for you to look at, they are for your personal enjoyment only, please do not reproduce them without my consent because if my dad finds out he'll plotz.
I hope that I can join you, Harry and the rest of your pals soon - the sooner the better!

no pumpkins here

I spent yesterday morning here, it was quiet but my body hurts from chasing small people through plastic tunnels

Miss Betsey doodle requested pictures of the babes... so here they are. A dog and the cat who thinks he is a dog and thinks laying on the computer when I am typing is fun*

Someone came over and stole my puppy, they left a dog in his place who is almost as big as his sister

And since Halloween is just around corner I have been drawing on tomatoes, they make good pumpkin alternatives, especially when they have noses!

*typing at 6am, with the kitten lying on the computer cause more mistakes than I usually make, they have been corrected now that I am awake and without kitten!

steeks, knitters and bloggers, oh my

Let try again, with words and links to go with all these pics!

So on Friday morning Sarah, Tara and I got in my car on drove like the wind, we made it there in time for dinner with Cate and a little non fiber realated shopping, well that is not true cashmere was bought but someone else in a factory in China knit it up into sweaters, it was very nice of them to sell them so cheaply at Marshalls for us.

After dinner Cate managed to find the delicate balnce between not enough and too much wine in order to cut the steek in her OMG fabulous sweater. There was a variety of reactions, there were a few women who were shocked and really didn't believe that she would do it till she did.

I finally got to meet Crystal

and Lucia who looks a little shocked in this picture

But Cate pulled it off without a hitch. It was also Kate's birthday but sadly I did not get a picture of that as I was busy fighting with my sock ( it has been frogged) . There was also Sara, and Norma and lots of other great women, one of whom has a picture of my sheep PJ's - I was done with my clothes but felt that i had to wear something in the lobby of the hotel.

I got to hold the Wooly Babe, in Amy fashion, I told my ovaries to shut up because it is so not happening! but she was nice to hold and then give back!

There were other canucks to visit with, Leanne and Steph were just some of them.

There were animals, lots of them including a sheep in the back of a station wagon but none of us were fast enough to get a picture.

There was a party, with an open bar! Amazing, I don't think I need to link this one to anything.

Sarah did some supid party tricks at the bar but

waited unitl she got back to the hotel to tag team the tricks with Danielle

I think they both just wanted to show off their socks!

Kay gave the wooly babe her first needles,

I bumped into Denise again (I saw her the day before too at the blogger meetup) on my way back after going tire shopping - it so wasn't in my plans for the afternoon, it meant that I did not get to hear Steph or see the hat escapade - sad but true

And at the end of the day when we could walk no more and realised that we had not eaten since breakfast we sat down with some other bloggers - lots of stroking and admiring of fiber resulted. This is Alison and Rachel, I missed the pouting picture but (Dr.) Steph got it. After that we headed back to the car, Steph, Juno and David are parked right behind us and so we chatted for awhile, took pictures of them exhausted on the ground but I won't post them as mine are awful, (try Sarah's blog), shared our popcorn so Steph would not eat her soap and then after a final giggle got in the car to head home, tired but happy - with a trunk full of yarn that was going to make it across the border because I have new tires!

Still to come - the wheel I didn't get to buy and the all the stuff I did!

lookee what we have here

Tuesday, October 9, 2007


I'm a square... Stitchy has done it again. I am only on for Saturday as I thought that was enough. I have a button thaks to Norma and plan on wearing my red melon scarf/shawl, probably as a scarf that day. Look for me with some of these fabulous bloggers and pehaps this one or this one if they are there - are you coming?
That's all I have for now, I have some fun and amusing pictures but since I am home they can't be uploaded, perhaps later this week. Off to knit in the car, happy Sunday

yep, it was a moment

I got up this morning, got organised grabbed the lunch container from the fridge and put it in my lunch bag, the lunch that i packed with care from last night dinner that P made me. It was a good dinner and I was looking forward to lunch today. I got all the small people eating and then opened my lunch bag to get out my lunch. Looks good

Till I opened the container and realised that I had grabbed the peppers that I roasted for tonight's pizza rather than my lunch... rice crackers and gluten free muffins it is then, lucky me.

There has been some knitting for small people happening and some holding of small people and a little forced modeling of unfinished gifts - doesn't he look impressed, I am sure he will like it more when it doens't have needles attached that can poke him!

Happy Thanksgiving - enjoy the weekend.
