  • eeeek! hahaha – all i can say to this posting is that i am LMAO!!! heee! you guys are so witty! ann should definitely stop by her LYS on Friday to check out our Halloween gear – at least 3 of us are planning on decking out! should be good country fun, y’all!

  • Thnks Kay! Ir’s not often that I laugh so hard that I nearly choked to death on the cappacino. Can you please at least warn me nest time ? 😉
    Have a lovely trip with hubby.

  • I’m with Polly…warnings would be appreciated! I love how the middle sweater appears to have obliterated your niee’s entire personality – the power of wool!
    Actually I’d really like to say thank you for sharing. You have acted like my very own 12 step programme today and soon I may be able to face my own first faltering steps in the world of fibre (including the cotton sweater that caused my friends young son to scream horribly when his head got suck in the too tight neck). No I’m not sure I can go there yet…..

  • Thank you Kay for making me laugh so hard so early in the morning! Obviously I was laughing *with* you and not *at* you – we’ve all been there. As for the skeletons in my cupboards – it’s too spooky and mishapen to contemplate ;o)

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Kay needs to send windex ’cause I just sprayed juice all over my monitor. I’m quite sure this entry is the funniest and most clever I’ll read this week. Month, even! Heck, maybe even more. The Pod Person line slays me 😀
    Sure wish I had some Halloween knits to share. I gotta get some more knitting years under my belt!
    P.S. Have a good trip. We’ll miss ya!

  • Perhaps….just perhaps, someone cast a spell on you at the Yarn Company!

  • Ha! My first sweater, a geeky vest in ragg wool, was attacked by my cat, who chewed a hole right in the middle of the back. It was expertly repaired by Andrea at your LYS (hi guys!). I have moved along my first few sweaters and now wish I had them!

  • Hi Julie! What is it about the cat and sweaters? Mine nests right in the middle of whatever I’m working on, so I usually have to defurz it unless I want a wool/feline blend sweater. She always knows which project is the active one–never goes for the dormant things.
    Did you finish Beth? I finally got all the buttons on and declared it done. Send a picture of yours and we can compare.
    Hope baby Matthew is thriving.

  • Hey, Ann! I did finish it and just sent you an email. Must be something funky with email, though. I’ve tried to send one before :o(

  • Kay, warning next time! I coughed all that Vitamin C orange juice all over the desk!
    And Ann, what about it, I have often wondered with all those Nashville Country Music Dolly Parton dos and getups, do people look much different on Halloween? 😉

  • Beautifully done! (The blog entry that is.) Ghosts of bad sweaters past are waking up in my memory. Maybe this is why I never used to knit for myself? So much less painful to cast those horrors onto friends and family? (It doesn’t matter that it doesn’t fit. I’m not wearing it.) I do remember an ex-boyfriend telling me once “There is no human being on the planet who would be able to wear this sweater.” He was probably right, but the operative word in that sentence is “EX”…

  • First of all, there certainly are a lot of liquids spewing around the place. Kay, please be more careful in the future with what you write. There is expensive computer equipment at stake.
    Second, Julie, try emailing me at [email protected]. I’m dying to see your Beth.

  • I am so stupid. I could have worn _my_ first sweater, recently rediscovered, for Halloween. I’m sure it would have been much easier to force my way across the parade if I’d been wearing that–“Stand back or I’ll burn your eyes out with my loud sweater!”
