  • You’ve got to love a woman who quotes Kathy Bates (in any movie.)
    πŸ™‚ PS – sleeves are going in tonight. Thanks for the kick in the ass.

  • Love that poem! Carrie has a really great ear for interesting rhymes. I don’t think I’ll be able to hear “cats and dogs” without hearing “monkeys and apes, toads and frogs” right after.

  • That Carrie! Great job! She’s a poet alright, but does she know it?
    See now, Kay my love, without the reference they’ll be thinking I was quoting that in regards to myself. I’m woefully under-insured. πŸ˜‰

  • I’m suddenly looking around the house at things that could use a very large sock!

  • I love that pig! (you knew I would!) and don’t feel bad about the wrist cuffs – I tried on a pair or cuff earrings once, and they didn’t fit! OMG – I need women’s size earring??? wtf?!

  • I love that pig – you knew I would! don’t feel bad about the wrist cuffs, I once tried on a pair of friggin earrings that didn’t fit! OMG – has it gotten to the point that I need women’s sized earrings? fercryingoutloud

  • So Hey,
    WHAT is that bean bag upon?
    (upon sounded most POETIC)

  • Below is my 2nd favorite quote from that movie (which is my top 20 all time favs)
    Sipsey: Oh it don’t make no kind of sense. Big ol’ ox like Grady won’t sit next to a colored child. But he eats eggs- shoot right outta chicken’s ass!
    I have extended family from the deep south and everytime I see that wonderful movie, I think of them.
    I think I need to go knit a cozy for my love sac!

  • A baby sardine
    saw his first submarine,
    he was scared and looked through a peephole.
    ‘O come, come, come’
    said the sardine’s Mum
    ‘It’s only a tin full of people’
    Spike Milligan. My favourite pome Of All Time, probably because I can remember it. Though the punctuation my not be right….
    Love Carrie’s poem. I think she should illustrate it.

  • Oh my, must see that shop! Lovely poem, too……..thanks.

  • For me, without the zipper that lamp would look (more) like the netted glass buoy decorations that hang in kind of seafood restaurants I frequent. I like the tri-cornered pillows–were they crocheted?

  • Now I totally need to go home and watch Fried GReen Tomatoes tonight.
    Why on earth would anyone knit a table cozy?

    You must see this, er, well-hung coffee table. It’s in the same vein as the beanbag chair sock. Who thinks up this stuff??
    P.S. I sacrificed blog fodder for this comment! πŸ˜‰

  • a poet….but does she know it? loverly!

  • Testing, testing…

  • I think the zipper might come in handy when changing the lightbulb, but else…

  • Testing

  • Only in New York.
    Hey, congrats you two, on the awesome book review this week!

  • Well, if you consider circular needles as just big ol’ double points, then you could knit (just about) anything really large and tubular with enough pairs of looooong circular needles. Think about what you could cover with 4 40″ circular needles… or maybe one is better off NOT thinking about that…
