Im back with pics and goss and stuff.
Firstly something amusing.....
This was sent to me and I'd like to pass it on. I dont know where it came from so credit isnt given but thanks are.
A recent study indicated that yarn gives off certain pheromones that hypnotize women and cause them to purchase unreasonable amounts.
When stored in large quantities in enclosed spaces, the pheromones(in the yarn) cause memory loss and induce the nesting syndrome(similar to the one squirrels have before the onset of winter i.e.storing food).
Sound tests have also revealed that these yarns emit a very high-pitched sound, heard only by a select few, a breed of women known as“knitters”. When played backwards on an LP, the sounds are heard as chants, buy me, knit me, and wind me into a ball “.
In order to overcome the so called “feeding frenzy effect” that these yarns cause, one must wear a face mask when entering a storage facility and use ear plugs to avoid being pulled into their grip.
Studies have also indicated that aliens have inhabited the earth, helping to spread the effects that these yarns have on the human population. They are called “YARN STORE CLERKS”.
It’s also been experienced that these same pheromones cause apathological need to hide these yarn purchases when taken home (or at least blend them into the existing stash), and when asked by significant other if the yarn is new, the reply is “I’ve had it for a while.”
goooooooooooo on admit me, we all do it, the hiding bit and all the other. hahaha
Ok onto some knitting stuff.......... yes gasp but I may always be busy and neva home but I do plenty of knitting still. Mind u it seems to cut into my bike time these days.... Maybe brins doesnt need a dozen jumpers for winter lol
In knitting news. ......
Off the needles and sewn and looking sweet I might add is a jumper for Brins yes it was in a stripy stuff. accckrylic from BIGW, but I have to say amazingly soft and sooooooooooo much of it hey, 375grams and Ive done a jumper for a 6 yr old have enuff for a matching hat and some stuff for the baby too. Pattern was simply, in round till armhole, round neck simple garter stitch edges and flared sleeves. She loves it and thats all that matters hey.
Also off needles and awaiting buttons and some minor sewing is a jumper for Skye in Sirdar "Snuggly" in the fair isle dk. Ive tried to get a shot so you can see the pattern in the yarn. you might be able to see the self pattern it makes it was in pinks, purples and white
Also a single sock but we wont talk to much about that till the 2nd sock syndrome is abolished.
Last Wednesday my baby girl went to big school. She has started year 1 and loves it. I thought she might but coming from a Waldorf school to this one is a huge change for her and me. But they are lovely, shes happy and settled in with some new friends already. And did I cry and sook on her first day..... HELL NO..... she was dropped off kissed madly and the spunk and I took off for the day on the bike. We spent a lovely day riding and pubbing.
AHHHHH and my baby girl AKA granddaughter Skye is 10 weeks old, isnt she a cutie. Shes got colic atm, poor baby, she keeps her mother amused by crying. Glad I can hand her back.
Pic of my shiny RED car and the other love of my life, (besides the spunk), the Harley, shes a lovely old girl and makes me smile to see the spunk soooo happy with her. Yanno Ive had some people think Im a freaking dickhead and ijiot spending all my money on something for someone else , but yanno I got such a warm fuzzy feeling when I did it, that hasnt worn off. Makes ya realise you have done the right thing. The look on his face when he gets off her is priceless. Thats why I love him
Hes been on my case atm cause its my birthday next week and its a big one *sobbing now*. He wants to know what I want..... I dont bloody know. A tattoo with his name on my butt....
looksee what he gave me the night before xmas.
Its a crystal ball with a fairy in it and its on a rotating light thingy. Aint it lovely. I will treasure it forever.
Ok enuff atm I need to go pick the cherub from school. shes got 30 mins for a swim then we are off to bowling, shes taken up junior league bowling once a week and loves that too. My baby is growing up
Leave you with a lasting thing... I thought it amusing myself dont know if it will work but its supposed to be animated
