I saw a tweet this morning and was instantly enamored: I would now like a marionette of myself to feed squirrels and bunnies and other small animals, and I also wouldn't mind having a movable mini-me to knit for. Just imagine how quickly FOs would fly of my needle for mini-Mandy/mini-madgeface! Think of all the … Continue reading lol Friday: Woman, Marionette, Squirrel
This has been rattling around for at least a yaer, but it's funny and encouraging at the same time, a rare thing. Happy Friday!
Thanks to our celebration of the Memorial Day holiday here in the US, I slacked on my blogging schedule. To be fair, the family we stayed with in New Zealand was in town, so we spent Monday cleaning and preparing a big meal for them, and then spent Tuesday in DC seeing the sights with … Continue reading LOL Friday: What Have I Been Doing This Week?

Body hair can be funny, particularly when it's sheepish. Mutton chops! These make me wish it was fashionable for ladies to sport facial hair, but that's a trend that I don't think will ever catch on. By Terry Border, one in a series (yes, there are more). One for the ladies and anyone who relishes … Continue reading LOL Friday: Hair!
When I first came up with a blog schedule, Fridays were Follow Fridays, where I recommended someone to follow here on WordPress or elsewhere on social media. My Friday posts have been spotty, at best, and I have a Pinterest board of fiber art funnies that I'd love to share, so I give you Funny … Continue reading LOL Friday: Woolverine
What possessed me to make wee hats for my fingers/toes in Christmas colors back in 2008? I was knitting wee stockings and cardigans to give away as Christmas ornaments and decided I should try making some Santa & elf hats. The first one, the Santa hat, was too small, but fit quite nicely on my … Continue reading TBT: Finger/Toe Hats
