Not bad...

...for someone who has only been Canadian since 1991!

You are 99% Canuck!

You rock, you are an almighty Canadian through and through. You have proven your worthiness and have won the elite prize of living in a country as awesome as Canada. Yes I know other countries think they are better, but we let them have that cuz we know better than they do, eh?

How Canadian Are You?

For those who asked last night, here is the link to the felted yoda hat. Lynne, if you read this, you should also check out this pattern from the same blog. If Henry was just your rebound amigurumi (again, please tell me I spelled that right), this guy could be the real thing!

Holy pooling, Batman!

Remember this? Well, you won't believe what it looks like knitted up into a sock. It's wierdly insane, actually...

What I don't understand is why it changes? It changes twice. And I don't think it's my knitting, because that's got a short row heel worked using the other end of the ball of yarn. So the main yarn is always worked over the same 64 stitches with no interruption. Then it changes again halfway down the foot. Why? Nothing happened to the stitches, it wasn't even like I laid it down and came back later with different tension. I think it's the yarn. I think it's designed to make you go insane. There was some evil genius at work here. I can't wait to start the second sock and find out what it's going to look like. Ninja, did you know it would do something like this? It's wierd yet strangely compelling!

Gentlemen, start your engines....Again (or not...)

Good news in our house this week. Yes, The Boy now has two gainfully employed parents! His Dad will start working here as a manager on Monday. Now, if only the bus schedule out there was a little better. Sadly, I'm the one who can get to work with no transfers and door to door service.....oh well, more knitting time for me!

Okay, I spoke too soon. In fact, I think that my choice of words ("start your engines") might have cursed us. The alternator light came on while driving to work, and it's not cause the belt is loose, so that means we probably need a new alternator. I hate irony. "Start your engines" indeed.

Gentlemen, start your engines.....

Remember this guy?

Well, now he's got the right clothes for the job! The Boy was a race car driver for Halloween this year. Now, if you race him, when he wins he asks you for a trophy and champagne, and pretends to spray the champagne everywhere. Michael Schumacher, you retired just in time. This Boy wants your job!
