Ode to the Fiber Fest, cont…

Carlito would drool over this…

It’s Friday, and I have no new threads to bragabboud.

I can sense a Wind of Keen Diappointed Astonishment blowing my way so instead I will brag about three of my most favorite possesions!

From L to R:

1. Mr. Chia Soldier: this hollow piece of Art is from WWII and has holes all over his head so you can grow Chia Hair (I need seeds, anybody?)

2. My New Digital Scale: WOWOWOWOW – my sister turned me on to this bad boy when I whined about figuring out postage in advance of mailing to avoid the 1+ hour I usually have to wait in line at the Division St Post Office. I got it on eBay. It is shown with a 3.7 oz. complimentary ball of Barn Yarn…

3. Ty the Jack Russell Terrior: or as I suspect, the Terror. This is currently my favorite dog photograph (I have a few). I found it at a flea market a long time ago – it is OLD and actually Sepia Toned. Someone wrote the name “Ty” on it with white ink. I think my Ty is better than that guy on Extreme Makover, who actually bounces off the wall alot like a Jack Russell might…

In other Knitting News: we have lift-OFF! POCKETS are now attempting orbit on the Scoop du Jour woolie…

Ye, m’am! This is a fusion project – I’m knitting the straight St st parts on the machine and doing all the ribs and bands by hand. So far, all the parts are *loomed* and I’m plugging away on all that rib.

    Your digital scale has other uses, too — I used mine just a couple of days ago to figure out which balls of leftover sock yarn held enough to make baby socks. Enjoy!

    My Ty is the best of them all though. (I haven’t ever met another dog named Ty, how funny you have a photo of one.)

    Be nice to Ty. I just saw his picture on an advertisement for ADHD medicine and it said something about his telling his “personal story”. Although the analogy isn’t lost on me! Have fun this weekend meeting the Harlot!

    I do the same thing — let my knitting machine do the boring stuff! I’m so much more productive when I do that, and it sounds like you are, too. Thanks for allowing us into your knitting world — I’m always inspired by your blog.

    I love that digital scale – thanks for that leftover weighing tip!

    Poor Ty! I had no idea…

  6. Marg says:

    Awwww…Doncha think Ty (Pennington, that is) is cute when he blows his megaphone?! ;-)

  7. Val says:

    I love that Chia Soldier–such a great expression on his face!

  8. Bonne Marie says:

    He cracks me up!

    And I cannot tell a lie – I, and most of my TV watching buddies, have a collective crush on NY native Carpenter with Attitude: Paul DiMeo!

    We all call each other when he is on the verge of tears telling his stories – it’s just too much! We LOVE him~!

    And I would just DIE if Ty Pennington EVER used the Horn on my hut! Yeah, baby…

    Ty does have ADHD. It’s tough to be an adult with it – knitting helps! I know.
