the ∑ in Xmas

SUM TOTALs usually bore me, but hey, it’s AFTER Christmas! So now it’s merely*historic* to recount the details – and I LOVE history…

Truly unoriginal, but FUN! Five bucket hats have wended and wound their way on a Christmas path far and wide to land on new noggins. Beside the Cubby Hat, this is my favorite, a Cascade 220 felted bucket (I lost the band so I don’t know the exact color). I am finally learning to check the hat in increments of 5 minutes (for better control – was lazily checking every 10 minutes or so) while it’s felting – I fish it out of the HOT sudsy water with the leftover plastic from – RU READY – a defunct brushless toilet brush – ahem – a HANDLE. We try not to throw ANYTHING away before its time in the ChicKnits Household (wondering who? those people are who eat everything but the SQUEAK – big EEEoouuuuwww all around – it’s my ancestors! The Sausage Eaters! I took my Mom into the best local Polish Deli around – Andy’s on Division – and she almost expired with delight upon gazing at the smoked sausage display hanging behind the *Ham* counter. I say ham, because there were about 50 different kinds of ham in that damn case!~ AND some cheese.)

BTW#1: It seems I’ve become addicted to using a new, combination of punctuation marks, because a simple “exclamation point” no longer can contain my AWE & WONDER with the world and writing about it at large. WITNESS – a tilde and exclamation point together: !~ which translates in Bonnese to “SUPER WHAT THE —-“. This just came flying off my fingers so I’m keepin’ it!~

BTW#2: One of my Favorite Flames of 2004 was someone who chastised me via email for using too many exclamation points in my entries. Like, dude, RU really THAT excited by LIFE! YES! I AM! AND! I won’t/can’t STOP!!!!!!!!!!

Ahem. That brings us to RoundUp Total 2: only 2 measley scarves for the Season. But this Kureyon baby gets you blinded by the light!


this is my fave of the batch – a scarf pattern marriage of the Bow-Knot and the Try This Slotted Scarf Pattern in Kureyon Color #126.

SADD Be Gone!~
