Thank you all for the nice things about my Curve of Pursuit. I can't attend the baby shower, but I hope that she enjoys it as much as I do. We try respond to every comment, but sometimes Typepad screws up. So if you think we're being snotty, it isn't the case. Our emails get bounced back sometimes up to 12 times. We really appreciate every single comment here at Two Black Sheep.
SK & I are on a Wii mission. We got sucked into the bowling/tennis/baseball madness. And now I want one bad! We got some info that there may have been a shipment to our city. After I dropped the kids off, I hit some stores. Nothing. Nada. Zip. I did find a new obsession though. I was going to get a cup of coffee for the shameful ride home, but I got sucked into the pretty ads. I never get tea out because it's served way too hot, but I do love a nice cup at home. I also don't like milk in my tea either. Black for coffee & black for tea. But there right before me was a pretty sign advertising the London Fog Tea Infusion. I'll bite. One please. I'm hooked. It's a bag of Earl Grey with milk & foam. So sweet & delicious. Try it. I think you'll like it.
This picture isn't great, but he's a mover! At least the hat wasn't ripped off a thousand times. I bought Wee Woolly Toppers the second I saw it on Carrie's blog & started the hat soon after. I used some Debbie Mumm Traditions that I had in the stash. I bought one skein just to see the results & it stayed forever in my bin. What do you do with one skein of something? I was so pleased with this yarn. It isn't completely piled & the color change is more wearable than Noro. There's also no sheep poop throughout the skein which makes the Traditions softer & less gross. I love Noro because of the wacky color combo, but sometimes don't you wonder if the dyers were drinking too much? Noro Silk Garden is soft, but it's still crunchy. Moth poop maybe? The pattern was well written & couldn't look cuter on Tuck. I started another one from the book, but it's more of a floppy beret style. Could be more rasta than beret & that might be an issue.
I'm hosting my first knit night. I think that my days of being in the Knit Blog Closet are coming to end. Not that I'm going to show someone a purl stitch & then say "Hey check this site out." One friend, that isn't coming, did ask me on email if I knew about Ravelry. SK said, "Tell her you don't know about Ravelry." I looked at him with disgust. "You don't lie about Ravelry," I told him. I wouldn't be a good knitter if I didn't know about certain things. I don't know about a lot of things but knitting is one thing I know. Well sort of. We'll how the second hat works out.
