Now that’s what I call stopping traffic!

Every day the traffic report has a mix of accidents, stalls, and debris on the road. Often they tell you what the debris is: a ladder, a mattress, a pallet. The weirdest one I ever saw was on the San Francisco Bay Bridge. On the line between the lanes was a very very large fish.

I hope to never be the reason for this type of traffic report, but today I was hauling some of my stuff around, and was pondering what would happen if my payload came loose. You recall that I knit? Of course you do. I was hauling half a dozen large bins full of brightly colored balls of yarn. Had they spilled, they’d go bouncing merrily about the lanes like so many overgrown superballs.

But what if the accident happened to involve the van carrying kittens to the mall for holiday adoption season? Kittens everywhere. Balls of yarn galore. Imagine the rubbernecking — probably drivers would just stop altogether and watch the chaos.

So I drove very carefully, and no pets were harmed in the posting of this message. Plus, kittens make a very bad xmas gift anyway.

Silk YarnLately I've had lots of contract work, so enough income to feel like I can buy a couple of things. So of course I've irreponsibly gone flitting about the net, dribbling credit card numbers everywhere. Every day little gifts arrive at my door! Clothes! Tech gadgets! Weird crap from American Science & Surplus! And the yarn, oh the yarn. I'm trying to take photos for the Flash Your Stash project but every time I take a photo it's out of date. And I can't even start listing my projects.

Check out this La Luz 100% silk yarn from Fiesta Yarns. Yum!

Introduction Myself

I collect ways that people describe me. This one came recently:

” Editrix, in the land of knitting, you’re hanging out with Santana
while I’m eating a cheese sandwich at the bus stop.”
In other news, I love this eBay listing: HAUNTED 50’s FERTILITY Dress ~SPERM PRINT ala MONICA XL
