Wednesday, June 6, 2007 THIS is the kind of knitting humor I can definitely appreciate! After my husband reads this darn thing I'm not even going to be able to fit his ego through the door though.....

I was looking at all of your pics of FO's and they are lovely. Well, *blush* I came across your "weenie warmer"...hee hee and just love it btw. I belong to an awesome knit group on MySpace [name removed since I don't have permission], and just HAD to share that with them. I tell ya, those girls have giggled and shown it around to all of their gf's. Girls that dont even know how to knit now want to learn just so they can make one of those...LOL Here is my post that I wrote...I thought it was pretty cute...

"I was innocently nosing around Knit Witches website that I found off of her AWESOME how to knit/crochet video's on YouTube. I was looking at her wonderful FO's, when low and behold I clicked on the next pic. WOW!! Of course I thought of my dear [name removed] buddies, and just COULDN'T let you miss out on such a wonderful knitting project. I hate to say this but....for some of us it will take looooonger to make, and sorry to say for others it will take just a short amount of time. If this is your case, think VERTICAL stripes...LOL

(look over your shoulder before opening the link..not for the kiddies) Warmer"

Then I had an html link to the word "warmer".

Well, tell your hubby he has been the hit of our knitting group, and probably had more women looking at his "man package" today than he has ever had look at it before...LOL...well, I'm just guessing that might be true....LOLOL

Thanks again for your help.Have a wonderful day.

I think that is GREAT! Some people that actually appreciated me putting that pattern on the website for exactly what it was - hilarious!!! I actually have had a few nasty comments about it. One that particularly sticks out in my mind is someone who told me they were ticked because they were expecting the pattern to be for a daschund sweater ---- well it's not even close!!!! But I could see how one could get confused....weenie warmer vs. daschund sweater. So, now there is a "warning" on the pattern that people see before they open it. Haha!

Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair

OK - I know, I haven't blogged anything for a while. Shame on me. BUT has anyone else seen this book?? Drunk, Divorced and Covered in Cat Hair by Crazy Aunt Purl - ok here's the link - go check it out. This book looks hilarious and I simply must have it! I think I should write - Slightly Tipsy, Married and Covered in Dog AND Cat Hair as a knock off book....haha!

OK, also, I have another fun thing for you to check out. I have recently been corresponding with the Knotty Girls. They are pretty darn funny too so go look at their site at My favorite part of their site is where they are comparing each other's personalities. I told them that I especially like their Knitting Drinking Game that they have posted. Yeah, NO WAY to remain sober playing that game.............if you have a party involving this game do yourself a favor and stick to garter stitch anything. This game should come with a warning that claims "No Lace!". My husband told me I should have a knitting party and feature that game as the entertainment. Of course, that is only so that he will be surrounded by extreemly tipsy women who would ask him to model a thong I had knit him then (hopefully) beg him to be our stripper for the night thus becoming the encore to the knitting drinking game entertainment! Yeah.........I've got him all figured out.

Nothing much new to report other than we have decided we are NOT moving to SC after all. After some heartfelt discussions with hubby we have decided we just have too many friends and family here and we love our house and our neighborhood and we just aren't quite ready to leave this crazy city just yet. I know, Atlanta is getting bad and the traffic is atrocious and we hear gun shots at least once a week but, ya's home........for now anyway. So, we bailed on the deal we made on the house and began replanting ourselves here a couple of weeks ago.

In celebration, my husband decided to finally get our garage in a somewhat workable (read: able to walk through it) condition. My husband is a handyman and we don't have a handyman house (YET - it's under construction of sorts) to house all of his endless supply of tools. Oh yes, we have a tool for EVERYTHING. I have told him if he wants to really make some money he should open a tool rental place for the neighbors in our garage!! So anyway, now it is somewhat respectable and we can actually pull a car into it!! Amazing.......truly. I wish I had taken before and after pictures!! He put up shelves and made a work bench and all kinds of fun manly stuff!!

OK - enough about that. OTN: Still working on that knitted sweater for our bigger dog - hopefully it will be done sometime before the next millenium, still working on that darn huge crochet blanket (sort of - I saw the same one that Wayne's ex-wife made the other day [she gave me the pattern] and it was GREAT! So dang, now I feel like mine pales in comparison already and I chose sucky colors dammit!) and a crochet baby blanket for someone who doesn't really deserve it. I think I need a FUN project! Hmmm....I think I'll buy some yarn for that man thong!! Pictures to follow............
