where one krazy knitter spins her yarns....
Isn't she lovely!? Now, this would be Bonnie "Kiss Me Arse" Burnet sporting the latest rage in Paton's Shetland Chunky Tweed (Deep Red). The photo does not do the model or the hat justice, but the camera is on the fritz and the cell phone cam just had to do. Bonnie had requested a groovy hat to keep her noggin warm and I thought "woo, another excuse to knit up Le Slouch!" Fun and painless to knit and it looks so freakin' fabulous!
The hubs was off to the studio with da' boyz for some good ol' rock n' roll recording on Sunday afternoon, so I gladly played rockstar wife and took myself to Bloom for a Eucalyptus & Spearmint Pedicure with scrub, masque and mint soak. For colour --> OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark. There's nothing quite like sitting back in a cushy red velvet chair and having your feet pampered all while knitting up a sock. The entire experience --> truly divine and highly recommended!
A year ago today I didn't have a clue and today, a year later, I still don't have much of one. Regardless, I'm so glad that I hopped on board the blog-train. I'm not a heavy poster. I wish that I was, but sitting in front of a computer all day doesn't leave much of a desire to do the same when I get home in the evening. Nevertheless, it's always groovy to check in and check it out. And it totally blows my mind when I see that someone from half way across the world has found my little ol' blog. Thanks T.O. knitters & Knitting Olympics Team Canada for turning me on. I've met such amazing people and some of them even knit. I dig the sharing. The Secret Pals. The Swaps. The Drunken Knit nights. The inspiration. Thank you, thank you very much....
I'm a sucker for love. Always have been. And I've been fortunate enuf to catch me the love of my life! The hubs proposed to me on Valentine's day. That day, two years ago, Jay woke me with breakfast in bed and a bunch of gifts. Actually, the first gift he gave me that year was at midnight - an exercise ball. I didn't quite know how to take it, but I had asked for one at some point. The man listens!
Kassidy's party was simply superb. All da' cool kids were there. We met at Planet Bowl, put on our suspicious footwear and did our best to stretch a little before pulling any muscles. The young'uns, Kassidy and her 11/12 year old troupe, took one lane and the brothahs, sistas and primos took another.
Dinora Martinez turned 86 this year. Funny thing about my abuelita (and madrina) is that she has two birthdays. One January 17th and the other in October. We tease her about how she chooses birthdays depending on the time of year. "Oh, it's Dinora's birthday -- again!" Truth is, she was born in the interior of Uruguay (Tacuarembó). Back in those days it took months before anyone would go into town for anything. "Ya, I'll take a pound of maté, oh, and by the way I had a little girl about 8 months ago...."
Thanks Lisa! I couldn't resist....
