… that this bug caught a ride to work on my car window the other day. (Really? Was this in my garage when I left?? Ewww.) It was about 2″ long and it gave me the creeps. Does anyone know what this is? I hope I never see one again. I was half afraid that it would jump at me when I took the picture.
… that there are too many projects that I want to knit and there is too much yarn that I want to use, and never enough time. And that there are too many nights when I flip through Ravelry instead of knitting. (Yes, I do see the irony in that. Getting rid of the second problem would help solve the first, wouldn’t it?)
… that Knitting Daughter’s last day at Loopy Central is tomorrow. She has been a huge help all summer long and we’ll miss her here!
… that part of our Dream in Color re-stock arrived (after you all cleaned us out last week) and it really is yarn, not a new Guitar Hero and a refrigerator for the shop. (Those Dream in Color gals like to re-use boxes. We’re fine with that. Except the time that they used a box from their recent “Chicago Cubs Desk Chair” purchase and the UPS driver was horrified, thinking that we had ordered a chair that glorified one of the St. Louis Carinal’s arch rivals.)
… that it was cloudy when I left for work, then it poured HUGE drops during my 3 minute commute and as I walked into the building, and then the sun came out 5 minutes later. What are the odds?
… that the yarn for next week’s update gets photo-ed tomorrow, and there are still too many boxes of it to unpack.
… that there are bare b*tts in this calendar that Wollmeise has put out for 2010. (Not really. It’s funny! But be warned.) Claudia and her husband Andreas (who is in the calendar, by the way) thought that a calendar with guys in Wollmeise-knitted-accessories, carefully placed, would be a great way to raise money for a charity. (Remember the movie Calendar Girls, where they did that?) You can click over to get them from Claudia directly, and to read more about the project. The photos are done in black and white, which really makes the bright colors of the Wollmeise yarn/knitting pop. My favorite months are May and December. And February, because that’s Claudia’s husband’s month. And July, because I want all of the socks that the guy is pinning on the clothesline. (But did I warn you about the bare b*tts? Ok, good. Forewarned.)
Anything bugging you today? Or is it just me?
