even with my wrists

I'm still signing up for a new knit a long! The Bunny A Long, which I saw Abigail had joined.

I won't be starting a bunny this week, but I'm hopping err... hoping that I can knit one next week!

Thank you all for you wonderful words of support about my wrists and suggestions. I have been rubbing tiger balm on my wrists and forearms, and I will be looking into going to the Electronic Arts chiropractor - in between all the situps I'll be doing of course ;)

I have plans for when I return to knitting. I keep spotting things I want to knit! Did you know the new Magknits is out? I want to knit this scarf as I have never tried short rows before, and I think the effect is rather pretty.

I completely forgot about the Oscars yesterday, even though I had planned to watch the fashions roll down the red carpet. I still caught a show though. Ervy and I were heading out for a late night donut run in search of donuts with coconut on them. Our neighborhood was out in full force watching a scene outside as we left. The fire department was busy hosing down a car that had apparently ignited while locked and empty. I was mostly amazed at how people came pouring out of the houses of our neighborhood to watch the going ons of the firemen.

vintage knit pattern of the day

I just got a huge 1961 needlecraft mag from ebay. The patterns are interesting, but really, I find the advertisements to be the most interesting part. I will scan some in to show y'all, but the ads are much more descriptive than today, and like to throw buzz words of the day around like "scientific" as in, buy this "scientific blanket."

Speaking of magazines... Ervy was super nice and ordered me Interweave Knits and Vogue Knitting subscriptions to surprise me! What a great ervy-guy!
random question
Who is Rick James? Why is he freaky?

oh lord - I am old, aren't I?

The gentleman came out with this little song in the 80's:

That girl is pretty wild now
The girl's a super freak
The kind of girl you read about
In new-wave magazine
That girl is pretty kinky
The girl's a super freak

I remember superfreak too ::cough cough:: of course I was only a wee one back then. I think crack was to blame for all the freakiness ;)

Sorry to read about your wrists. Hope the tiger balm helps. You know what? I like the scarf in Magknits too ... and I really want to make the Calmer tee. I'd say go ahead for the scarf.

I just started going to the chiropractor. It's a little addictive :) but you should still give it a try.

what they said (re: Rick James) although as I recall he looked pretty freaky in those platform boots...
The mohair does look almost like roving, doesn't it? It's the finest stuff I've bought, and is not quite as fine as (I think this is right) KidSilk Haze. Any finer and it'd be right there with spiderweb!

I'm halfway through my bunny. He looks like a blob so far, I hope he gets more bunny-esque when I'm done. ;)
