Maybe this is old news to the cool kids out there, but have you seen this cartoon? A friend sent it to me at work.

Click for awesome-ness: Ennui is not a French Dessert

Once you're done wiping up the bodily fluids you expelled while laughing at the hilarity, check out the follow up: Cloth-Benefit Analysis

And, now that you're smitten, you can buy a t-Shirt


So there are two pseudo organizations I'm starting.

The fist one is SOCK, dreamed up by S. It stands for Significant Others Of Crazy Knitters. He says he needs a support group, almost as much as I do. Here's a little button for your loved one's webpage:

The other one, my creation, is NAG. It stands for kNitters Against Global warming. Ladies and gents, this is something we should all be very concerned about. If temperatures continue to rise, who will wear our handknit sweaters? Those special wooly socks? The adorable cabled hat? Forget it. The only thing left to knit will be bikinis. It will be too hot even for baby booties.

Seriously, join the cause. Here's a button and here's a link to a page I created with info on what you can do to keep our planet cool. (I don't know how to make linkable buttons. If someone could help me, I'd be much obliged.)

This is me in the Costa Rica garb I bought last night in Target. We're jetting off in a mere 2 weeks! I'm excited and nervous. I really hate this picture of myself and I'm definitely rethinking the hat. Too bad I already took the tags off.

I'm about 80% done with my mom's bag. The knit picks order finally came in so I can finish it up, hopefully in time for her b-day Friday. The little stripey thing is the fingerless gloves I'm making for a coworker.

Can't wait until I get to start the clap. So very tired of wool, blue wool.

Happy Easter!

This was a crazy Easter weekend. Tons of family, crawfish, good times. (My justification for not having any pics)

I hope my knitpics order comes in today. I really need to finish my mom's bag.
In the meantime, I've started fingerless gloves for a co-worker. This is the first time I've used self-striping yarn, and it's fun. They're about the same color as my mom's totebag though, and I'm getting really sick of blue wool. Can't wait to really get going on my clap.

I had a weird dream last night. Well, a couple of them, but only one was knitting related. In the dream I was at a yarn store in France. I asked told the woman there that I wanted French yarn, something that I couldn't get at home. She showed me a skein of some pretty self striping stuff and it was marked free. So, I was really excited and decided to take it and buy a funny t-shirt they had for sale. I go to check out, and they charge me 10 dollars for the "free" yarn. I get mad and tell them I want my money back then, because I only want it if it's free. I get so mad I decide that I don't want the t-shirt either, but they won't refund my money. Instead, she gives me a 2 dollar book about basic stitches. I walk out of the store, furious and out 30 bucks.

It's a pretty mundane dream, as far as my dreams go, but my first knitting dream. The other one I had was about S being a polygamist. I clearly remember saying in the dream "If I had known, I wouldn't have married you". He thought it was really funny.
