What A White Chocolate Martini Makes A Knitter Think.....

*  That her husband, who doesn't even wear prints because they aren't "manly" enough, might enjoy a little strategically-placed lace pattern for "interest."

*  Apparently, that "strategically" is spelled with only one "t"

*  That the first hot summer day is a SMASHING day to work on a wool sweater.

*  That starting ANOTHER lace scarf--this time with beads--wouldn't really slow down the progress of the 14 existing projects.

*  That the ability to read while knitting--even if it is only mind-numbing round after round of stockinette done with a yarn that won't split--makes one a KNITTING GENIUS, no matter how often one has proved otherwise.....

*  That as soon as Andy's birthday sweater is finished, it's time to finally cast on that cabled sweater.....and that it will in no way make the 100-projects goal AT ALL difficult.....

*  That it sounds better to say that a black tube of knitting is too boring for pictures than to say one is too inebriated to figure out how to upload pictures of any current knitting..........

Hmm, beads and new lace???? What one will think under the influence! Have a great time Toni!
By the way, your Ostrich Plume scarf knits up very quickly I find. I am loving the pattern, thinking I must cast on, but a wider version, I think it is a 16 stitch repeat???? I think it will be lovely as a new shawl/stole.

of course your a genius as long as you dont make a mistake or split the yarn then you feel like an idiot but dont tell anyone all knitters are genius anyway who else would turn sheep into clothes with acouple of sticks or pieces of wire or how to turn a wool jumper into a wooly jumper

You are already my favorite blogger. You are one funny writer.slash.knitter and you make me chuckle. P.S. Strategically only has one "t" so what did you miss while knitdrinking?
