  • I saw Roger Daltrey from the second row a couple of weeks ago. Not only was his chest and that enormous scar on his belly on full display, his fly was open. Lots of anticipation, but no reveal.

  • Old Mother Hubbard indeed!
    And now I read that Roger Daltrey has been going around with his fly undone! (nothing new there then, some might say).
    Anyway, thank you once more for lovely words about our Bowbell Baubles, a set will be on their way to you. In you requested colours.

  • That Gale Zucker Cowl might just solve ALL of my Christmas knitting problems! 🙂 Thank you. xxx

  • YOUR requested colours. YOUR. Not You. Brain addled by baubles!

  • What is it about a dare that I can’t back down from it? Yikes. Should NOT have clicked that link.
    Thanks for another enjoyable, humorous blog post.
    Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas!

  • I, too, dared. Is it coincidental that the “how to knit” teeshirt from Cafe Press was featured in the ads on the RHS???

  • I love you people. And, check out, on Ravelry, of course, The Neck’s Big Thing. Made in less than a football game!

  • I love your Decibella, and your description of the stitch, too.
    I do not think you look like Old Mother Hubbard. Anyway, she’s off somewherre in a shoe with Old Roger Daltrey and his super-plastic shining chest.

  • Just finished a less quick fisherman’s rib cowl, but love this version. Also love carrie’s.

  • Sweet dreams after your subway rides and thanks for a wonderfully entertaining post!

  • I’m not knitting Christmas gifts either but i still have 5 baubles of ten to go. I’d send them along but they are red and white. Sorry.
    Must knit faster. Saw Gayle’s cowl last night. Need one.
    off to cast off red scarf, knock off the baubles and cowl on.

  • Oh! I love EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.

  • I’m sorry, but after you said “Roger Daltry” I stopped paying attention. Be still, my heart . . .

  • I have never RUN TO RAVELRY as fast as that. I must figure out the magical color ribbing.

  • Looks like you went with the two-sided I-cord, eh? Mother H never looked so good!
    The lovely Carrie looks almost ready to join Bilbo on His Quest. She will be warm and stylish.

  • I just finished my first Honey Cowl, and now I SHALL KNIT THEM FOREEEEVVVVVVEEEERRRRRR.
    The Disrobing of the Who burned, but then Kanye came on wearing what I can only assume was something from the Not Slutty Enough Kim Kardashian Reject Pile, and I had to turn it off because I am either too old or too young for music.

  • just saying this friday night lots of love
    and care to one and all how do you knit tears
    give big hugs to all your young ones
    your a great group on this page and watching
    ann and kayes childern grow up has been a joy

  • Old Mother Hubbard is MY persona, Kay, and don’t you forget it.

  • Kay, you are so damn funny. Good old steerage. My dad remembers coming in on the boat from Ireland to Boston and the stink of the trash on Spectacle Island in Boston Harbor!

  • Hats, stitch pattern on the fly are the thing this year around here. All else fails, I may use the knitting machine to crank out the stockinette bits. (In between bouts of cookie baking. Too bad Keebler elves don’t make house calls.)
    £ and € symbols come standard on the iPad keyboard.

  • Love the baubles – I am always looking for Unbreakable
    Ornaments- I would add some sparkly yarn and I think Roger has earned the right to take his shirt off

  • I’m seriously into tonal now – it happened after I knit “Sheep Heid” by Kate Davies recently. There’s something about knitting that pattern that changes you. Or, at least, me. Once you knit using 9 different shades of undyed shetland wool – it’s made me look at color in a completely different way.

  • That photo of you in Decibella is all I want for Christmas. Truly, such a good-natured lol that I really needed. You’re the bestest. xoc

  • I like Magnum, but the couple of times I’ve used it my knitting shed like a mofo. I’ll have to find a slightly less sheddy yarn to try it with, because it looks like a lot of fun!

  • Do you understand that this is high time to get the mortgage loans, which will make you dreams real.

  • Just want to say thank you for posting the inside of the Hagia Sophia mosque in Turkey! As a Muslim, I was thrilled to see such a vivid piece of visual beauty and artistry on my favorite of knitting blogs. ^__^
