Kate


The TooBoo crew went to see Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, aka “The Yarn Harlot“, speak a while ago and she handed out yarn and needles to make squares for Warm Up America! (I’d like to help on their Web site, I tried to spare you from the hideous intro page) while she spoke. Kate and I didn’t use that yarn for the intended purpose, but months later, we finally got our act together and sent the yarn squares that have been languishing in our dresser to Warm Up America! I unpacked them to get one final shot for the blog (complete with grazing kittens) and then had to pay for Priority mail because the post office guy said I had insufficient tape. meh.

I know this is supposed to be a knitting blog, but Miel the yarn-crazy cat is always up in my grill, so I have to be creative. On New Year’s day I made these paper cup holder bracelets, inspired by Susan Powter‘s bracelets. Guaranteed to make you feel like Wonder Woman (modeled by Kate).


I have all of these great photos of my Halloween costume, that I never got to wear to the parade because I had a crazy dry/infected eye that just didn’t go with the mermaid theme. I did wear it to a party and I think our table was the only one where the women’s costumes didn’t all look like strippers. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but a little creativity, people, how many naughty nurses can one bar handle? (rhetorical question). I’m also posting the eggnog cupcakes (from Bittersweet) that we had for Thanksgiving at Cassandra and Owen’s that were decidedly not eggnog-like, but still really damn good. And, to bring us up to the current holiday, the soaps that I made with characters on them that supposedly say things like: love, tranquility, energy, but that probably actually say something completely different. And, the iPod holder that I made for Kate. It was super-easy and one of the many cute things in Vogue’s Knit 101 book.
