So scared.....

Today's post is sponsored by the color green because green is a soothing, calm color, and I'm freaking scared out of my mind. Ok, it's a closely kept secret, and I never told anyone before, but... I'm TERRIFIED of the dentist. There. I said it. That being said... God help me! Eeeshk! I have a root canal today. And I am soooooo not ready for it. Nearly. I'm like... shaking. And I keep getting the hiccups. I wonder if that's related...

But you came here for knitting content, didn't you? Ok... well, I'm still workin on Loksins... and it's still getting bigger. I've got 6 stitches left to decrease, then I'll be done with the gussets. Which really doesn't meant anything other than in twelve rows the socks are gonna get wicked boring. Today, I'm going to my mom's house for this labor day thing, and I'm taking loksins even though at 3 is the end of their 48 hours (or was that yesterday at 3? Man I'm bad at this...) and I'm also taking Icarus because, even though it's getting bigger... it's actually really good travel knitting. I mean, I don't need to look at the pattern for about... 3 hundred added stitches lol. Anyway, that's it for now. Gotta go get ready for this damn dreadful dentist appointment... keep your fingers crossed for me!

So funny...

Somebody from California apparently wrote the top part, but somebody from OHIO came back and put them on their asses at the bottom. just read all of it! lol


- I can wear sandals all year long

- I go to the Beach - not "down to the shore"

-Our chicks are WAYYYY hotter than yours. Well...Miami can hang.

- I say "like" and "for sure" and "right on" and "dude" and "totally" and "peace out" and "chill" and "tight" and "bro" and I say them often

- I know what real cheese & avocados taste like

-Everyone smokes weed and its no big deal

-We'll roll up 40 deep when something goes down.

-I live next door to Mexicans, but we call them Americans!

-All the porn you watch is made here, cause we're better and that's how it is

- I don't get snow days off because there's only snow in Mammoth, Tahoe, Shasta, and Big Bear

- I know 65 mph really means 100

- When someone cuts me off, they get the horn and the finger and high speed chase 'cause we don't fuck around on the road

- The drinking age is 21 but everyone starts at 14 (legally 18 if you live close enough to the border)

- My governor can kick your governors ass

- I can go out at midnight

-You judge people based on what area code they live in, and when asked where you're from, you give your area code

- I might get looked at funny by locals when I'm on vacation in their state, but when they find out I'm from California I turn into a Greek GOD

- We don't stop at stop signs... we do a "California roll"
No cop no stop baby!

- I can get fresh and REAL Mexican food 24 hours a day

- All the TV shows you "other" states watch get filmed here

- We're the Golden State. Not the Cheese State. Not the Garden State.....GOLDEN!!!

- We have In-N-Out (Arizona and Vegas are lucky we share that with them)

- I have the most representation in the House of Representatives, which means MY opinion means more than yours, which means I'm better than you [jeez.... hahaha]

- The best athletes come from here




Ahem... So.. Um.. yeah... I read this, and thought I would reply...

Hey... California listen up... Ohio is where its at!

- I too can wear sandals all year long... plus I can put on boots to stomp your toes and I won't even stick out.

- You may be able to go to the "beach" instead of the "shore"... but can you go to the drive thru "Beer Barn?" What now surfer boy?

- You're chicks aren't way hotter than ours... they are almost equal... and that's only due to silicone, saline, botox, lasers and hair dye... We have the real ones and they can beat yours up.

- We're taught to say "Yes Sir" and "Yes Ma'am" and respect our elders because of it. We also say "Howdy" and "fixin" and "Yall" are pretty much recognized right away anywhere in the world :) We're famous

- You may know what real cheese and avocados taste like... but I know what 100% Grade A Angus Beef tastes like. Who wants avocados and cheese when you can have steak and potatoes?

- Haha... who do you think grows the weed and sells it to you?

- Why roll 40 deep when something goes down if 5 corn fed country boys can get the job done...

- I live next door to Americans, but we call them Mexicans

- Why would you brag about not getting snow days off?

- - When someone cuts me off, they get run over by my big ass truck, then I give them the finger and tell them to go back to California.

- The drinking age is 21, but if you aren't chasing the beer by 1 yr old... you're behind.

- You can go out at midnight? That's nice, I haven't even come home by then.

- OK... you said,"You judge people based on what area code they live in, and when asked where you're from, you give your area code" and as hard as I try I have no idea what you're talking about... I think you're watching too much TV.

- Yeah, you'll definitely get looked at funny when you come to visit but we have another name for you pretty boys, and its not Greek, its french.

- Of course you don't stop at stop signs... none of you can drive.

- You can pick up Real Mexican food 24 hours a day huh... well I can swing by home depot and pick up 24 Real Mexicans anytime of day. Can you say catering?

- Football is a religion, not a sport

- In Ohio, football means football, not soccer.

- Ohio is the best!

- in Ohio, most of our Mexicans are illegal... yea.... what now...????

Come on Ohio Show Your Colors! Repost!

Loksins update, and Emmy and I

Ok, so I finished the heel flap and I turned the heel on Loksins number 1. I'm working on the gussets now. See?

Alright so that's a horrible, horrible picture. Here are some better ones.

Or... at least it's a good picture of Emmy... ok, HERE'S a better picture. It's just Emmy. Much better lol.

Emmy and I hung out today and we took about a hundred pictures of ourselves together before we finally realized it wasn't going to work and we needed Dave to take pictures for us. So that's how these pictures happened. I'm gonna go work some more on the gussets and watch some TV.

Loksins get a turn

Ok, so I am FINALLY switching to a new project. I decided yesterday to give Icarus one more day... namely because I love it so much that I couldn't put it down. I decided to give something else a turn today because I was afraid I'd get burnt out on Icarus... and that would be horrible. I mean, I love it so much... Anyway, so today's 48 hours is all about Loksins. I started these a LONG time ago... and got distracted. So now I'm finishing. It says to do 9 pattern repeats before the heal, and I only did three, because I don't like my socks that long. I'm working on the heel flap now. Wanna see? Too bad. I'm not takin a picture because it looks almost exactly the same as it did before. I will, however, show you the old picture of it.

See? Looks the same. :-D

Time for something new

Ok, so at the end of 72 hours with Icarus (I gave it more than 48 because it deserved it... after all, I didn't spend much time with it the first 48...) it looks... pretty much the same as it did before, only bigger with more pattern repeats. So I didn't bother with a picture. I don't know how I'm going to spend time away from Icarus. I mean... I love the yarn so much... it's so soft... seriously, you have to try Jaggerspun Zephyr. It's amazing. Anyway...

I got some new partylite in the mail yesterday. Meet the partylite global fusion multi votive centerpiece. It's the new piece for 2007. Here is is on my TV, which is it's at least temporary home...

And here it is lit. It's so pretty... i love it. A lot.

Okay, now, on to 20 more minutes with Icarus... and then loksins. Then, after 48 hours (or 2, depending on how long I can keep myself away from Icarus...) I'll probably go back to it. Or maybe I should work on my mystery stole...

My 48 hours with Icarus...

... Looks like this.
That didn't go as well as I'd hoped. Or even as well as I had figured it would go (which was bad...) this is all I have. I still have till 3 tomorrow... but I think I might give it another day. I've been having tooth pain so bad I wanted to die. Not to mention the pain in my ass that I live with... we're not going there. Yesterday we had tornado warnings and sirens going off. Here's a picture of the sky before the sirens went off...

Then later, I took a video of these rotating clouds. It won't let me post it on blogger... but I was ready to boogie on into the interior hallway of my apartment.

At the Zoo again, part 2

Ok, so this is the last seriously picture heavy post for a while, I promise. These are the rest of the pictures from when Emmy and I went to the Zoo. Firs,t the grizzly bears. There's two of them here.

It looks like just one doing something weird with it's body and head or something... but it's really two. You can see them better here.

These guys are just... huge.

Here's a picture to see how big their feet are. My hand doesn't even cover half of it.

We also saw Mexican wolves, but no Timber Wolves. I found this really interesting cause I got to watch their body language and know what it means. I think she was the alpha female. When the others approached her, they had their tails and ears down.

This guy was seriously close to the glass. When I moved I spooked him.

And this one is just being cute.

Look! A big kitty! (I think it's a puma...)

And here's the Rhino. There was also a Rhino outside but he blended in with the wall so I didn't take his picture.

And here's Bodhi, the baby Elephant. I took lots of pictures of him because he's so cute. I'm not gonna caption all of them. He was the only elephant we saw though.

Stealing from the Harlot

I'm stealing an idea from the yarn harlot here. I think I'm going to spend 48 hours with each project. So, I started working on Icarus today at like, 3, so I'll work on it until Monday at 3. Then I'll work on something else (maybe I'll split two days up with something excessively boring, like, the multi-directional and noro scarves). Then in 48 hours maybe I'll work on a pair of socks (say, loksins... seriously, haven't worked on them in ages...) or maybe I'll start my mom's christmas present socks (Yeah right, like I have another 25 dollars to spend on sock yarn this month... I just spent 40 dollars on Icarus for pete's sake...) So, I thought I'd post really quickly to see how that works out. Probably horribly... but let's do this thing.

My new addi turbos, and when not to work on lace

So, yesterday, after getting my yarn in the mail and finding that it was the same size (almost exactly) as my merino-oro, I decided to go ahead and use size threes on Icarus, just like they say. I mean, I already know I like the look of it. The problem: here's a list of the size threes I have. One pair 3 three 16 inch addis (In MS3). One pair of size three straight needles (in the party lace scarf) and one pair size three dpns (Which obviously I can't use on this project...) So... I bought some addi turbo lace needles. And I LOVE them, with their red cable and gold needles and they're so pointy and perfect... I bought them from the yarn market which is right down the street so I don't have to worry about shipping. (By the way-they let me see their warehouse and let me just say... Oh. My. God.) Last night I caste on and worked the set up rows for the chart. I love the feel of this yarn, it just glides through my fingers and it's so soft... I love this project.

See the needles? Aren't they gorgeous? And here's a close up of the... pathetic 8 rows I have done on Icarus.

And now, for the second part of my post. It's short, but I think you get the point. Never ever, under any circumstances, watch a scary or intense movie while knitting lace. Ever. I'm gonna go work on Icarus now.

Friday, August 24, 2007


I just had to post really quick... I wish you could all see the beauty that is this yarn. No, not see it. FEEL it. Oh, God, so soft... so... mmm... Here's what I saw when I opened the package...

And the yarn out of the baggies...

And look, they sent me a price list and color card...

I'm in love with this yarn. Must... buy... lace... needles...

At the Zoo again, part 1

Yeah, I know, most people don't give a flying rat's... most people don't care about my zoo pictures, and there are a lot of them, but I thought I'd post them all anyway. So I'm breaking this post up. I think two posts should be good. So, let's boogie. First, Fluffy.

Yes, Fluffy. Fluffy is a 24 foot long, 300 pound reticulated python. Here he is.

Yep. That's fluffy. Here's a close up.

These guys are some kind of monkey... I don't remember what kind. Anyway, when we were there last week we saw a bunch of them fighting. This week, there was a baby. I don't know if it was there last week, but I don't remember it. When they're first born they're orange. See?

It was hard to get a good picture... he kept moving. Anyway, we saw manatees. There are two of them. These guys are so cool. They swim so slow...

In this one you can see Emmy's reflection in the glass.

See her? In the tank with the manatees are sting rays.

Those are the things that killed Steve Irwin. They're so gentle looking... they look like they're flying underwater.

Hmm... let's see... oh yeah, the moose! When we were in Maine I saw Moose in the wild. I didn't get such good pictures though. These three females were on one side of the cage, and the male was on the other.

Those two were hogging all the water...

Then there was the male. He was incredibly close to where we were. It was cool.

Here's a close up of him.

Then, of course, I got the pic of the swan, ya know, for MS3. Swan Lake.

He was so pretty... I also got a pic of the bobcat. But he's hiding and you can't see his face so you have to take my word for it.

I got his picture cause I'm a bobcat now. Ohio University bobcats. And of course, the lion. Alll we saw was him, the girl was hiding somewhere. He looks super skinny...

But his face is so cute!

And here's Emmy and I! Here's Emmy with the baby elephant statue...

And Emmy on the bears...

And me on the bears!

Anyway... for knitting content. Sorta. I'm starting Icarus this weekend. I'm making it with Jaggerspun Zephyr, like they suggest in the patter. I'm making mine with the color claret, and Addi Lace needles. I'll definitely post pics as I get going!
