« Prize #4: 200th Post Contest | Main | FO: Double Knit Duckie Hat of Doom- good day/bad day »

July 18, 2008


You could sew all the little toes together and make a mildly inappropriate Christmas tree garland. Especially if you sewed tiny tassles to them.

This is why we love Carrie.

Who the hell let Vickie Howell do a book?! Vickie Howell?!

And I thought it was sad that someone gave that girl a show. At least, they had the sense to take it away.

I hope you feel better soon, sweetie.

People knit socks?! o.0


Lol, carrie. I was thinking boobie cups but i love your idea of garland with tassels! it would so fit my household and xmas tree! (my household: mildly inappropriate!) Glad your wonkiness is going away.

I hope you feel better soon. This week got away from me, too.

I think I lvoe you. :D I'm playing that for Texas when he gets back. *ahem* If he's seven years younger, that doesn't make me a cougar. Right? Although when I talk about some things in my past and realize that he was 12 at the time or still in highschool when I was already married and divorced... it is kind of scary.

Hope you get back on track again soon.

I must say that the Bazzar Bizarre is intriguing.

Miss your blog, hope you get back on track soon. But we all need to take time for ourselves sometimes. TC
