I'm about to make you very, very jealous.
But NOT just because Hope named me a Rockin' Girl Blogger. Why thank you, m'dear, you rock too. Did you know Hope once crocheted me a little ponchette dealybop that was on the front of a Rowan magazine (#35 i think) that I really just HAD to HAVE that summer?
So apparently you're supposed to pay this one forward. Duuuuude. How could I possibly choose just five rockin' girls when there are so many? Y'all know who you are. Consider yourself...
OK whenever I type "consider yourself" my mind then keeps going with the song "...part of the family. consider yourself...at home!" Come on, no one else loves Oliver?!?!
OK so anyway, as I may have mentioned, I'M ABOUT TO MAKE YOU VERY JEALOUS. And remember up top how I mentioned Hope having randomly made me something once? Yeah, uh uh, awkward segue, but back to that...
So you may have heard through the vicious knitting grapevine about how I am somehow able to get people to knit stuff for me? Like I say "OH THAT'S SO PRETTY I WISH SOMEONE WOULD MAKE ME ONE" and somehow I have these freaky nutso crazy girls as friends who say things like OK I'LL MAKE IT FOR YOU. No, seriously? SERIOUSLY.
[I may be a little too punchy to be writing this. Bygones.]
And I mean other people have knit me stuff for, you know, birthday presents, or swaps, (let's see, Alice made me a shawl, and Monica (who also knit me a ram) and Amy have both made me socks, and Claudia and Rachel made me socks but those were in exchanges so they don't really count and Strizzy made me a hat/mitten set in a valentine's swap, man we need to do one of those again, and Mariko's made me TONS of stuff including this awesome dude and Mary made me the dude from the BAD BOOK and I can't even talk about all the shit Ashley made me in our recent swap...)....and Carrie made me anemois for my birthday and Heidi sends me jam and coasters and necklaces and all kinds o' stuff.... AND OH MY GOD EVERYTIME I LOG OFF I THINK OF SOMEONE I FORGOT. IT'S LIKE I'M AT THE OSCARS AND I'M FORGETTING TO THANK MY HUSBAND AND MY DIRECTOR AND THE CAST AND CREW AND AM ONLY THANKING THE BOY I GOT TO MAKE OUT WITH ON SCREEN. Lordie. Bygones. Consider yourself mentioned even if I didn't... OK? OK.
Yeah, I was like ALREADY the luckiest girl in the world.
Well check me out NOW, motherfuckers!!! [as my polish grandmother used to say when she swore in front of me "pardon my french!"]
Handmade (doh!) for me by Melanie, who sadly gave up her blog like forever ago and no matter how I cry will not be convinced to start one up again.
I cry please blog please blog please blog and she ignores me. And then I cry i want a ripple i want a ripple i want a ripple.... And she said "SEND ME THE YARN BITCH AND I'LL MAKE YOU ONE." Yeah? yeah. OK.
AND HERE IT IS. I guess now I'll just have to cry over her lack of blog into my blanket!!!!
Honestly peeps, winter cannot come soon enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's made of Rowan pure wool DK that I ordered from the Knitting Garden. I ordered one ball of almost every color and two of some and had it all shipped right to Melanie's house and said surprise me.
Can't say I'm not lucky. Nope. Can't even say it.
OK I'm going to go turn the air conditioner as high as that fucker will go and curl up in my blanket and think lucky thoughts. Maybe tomorrow when I get home from work there'll be a BOY in a BOX, whaddya think?!?!?!
