An open letter to my knitting needles

Dearest Addison,

 I have missed you a great deal this week. Since I have been trapped in my office all day and night we have not had a chance to commune. Dreaded work, PR, and my engagement party are only continue to seperate us.

I have had some thoughts of how what to do with you upon our reunion and I would love to tell you about it. You see, I have met this woman, and am totally crushing on her. Her name is Elizabeth and she promises to teach me about knitting in a 12 session knitting class on DVD.

How I adore her sensabilities. She has written many books and I have been loving her words so, and to now be able to hear direction through the power of DVD is amazing. She is incredible with the needle, but I wish she would slow down some times. (thank god for the return to chapter button.

So until next we meet,

Happy Knitting

(Not that you would find someone else to knit with… I am a jealus knitter and will not have it..)

Comment Spam…

I don’t know why, but I am currently under attack by comment spammers. This blows.

 Anyhow, I will have full show notes up tonight for the show. I got caught up in a wonderful afternoon and evening with my pumkin last night and didn’t feel like firing up the computer.

Have  great day and don’t forget to send in some knitting jokes for the itty bitty Hat book drawing.

Hold on a minute

Hey all…

No show today. Sorry. I could give you the laundry list, but will spare you.

Basically, I have one to many thins on my needles of life and am slowly clearing these things up.

I really love doing the show and will get back on a regular schedule soon, but please bear with me for a little. In the mean time I have set up some fun interviews so that when I do get back you will have a chance to here more about the knitting revolution world in Boston.

Thanks for listening

July is almost at an end

This weekend, I swear… A new episode is coming. Last weekend was time with my Siblings. David really loved doing the show and will be coming back in a couple of weeks to report on how his hat is coming along as well as keeping me in check.

On the next show The Rainy Day Episode we will explore the lamenting world that is my knitting melancholy. I know it would be good to start up with an up note, but I am not known for doing what is write. Here are the segments to look forward to:

Yarn-a-lot: I miss you guys, here is the dirt…
Return of the Purple Monkey: It won’t get off my back, and I won’t let go…
A ray of sunshine: Baby hats… a review of the best baby hat book ever… (Cooo!)

This show will have major sprinklings of Tom Waits (yeah baby), Death Cab For Cutie, Wren Ross, and other pod safe music. Love that stuff…

FYI – It’s my birthday, (old)man

Just saying… Now I am tweny nine… so close to thirty I can feel it in my gullet.

If my birthday Karma is good, when I get home I should have the August copy of Get Creative Magazine featuring a little lurb about me. I hope the photo came out nice.

I will let you guys know that my pumkin has agreed to join me tonight at my knitting group. This is a great deal for me seeing as I need some knitting help and I want to spend some time with my pumkin. My late night job has been taking me away from her… phwey..

Addition

Like a lightening bolt, it just dawned on me what to ask for from my parents (yes they still like getting me presents(and yes I still like recieving said presents from the folks)). I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before. But I know that I have been drewling over the EZ workshop dvds and book since I heard about them. So there you have it… Obsessed, obsessed, obsessed…

Not a new revalation.

More episodes soon

I am going to come out of my break to do a very special Birthday episode. OK, my birthday is on Wednesday and I won’t do the show until at least Saturday. So that means that by the time you hear the show you should be able to hear a new found sense of maturity in my voice…

Yeah, right!!!

The next episode will actually be my rainy day episode. So if you don’t want to hear yet another lamenting knitter… than I recommend you stay away… But if you like the melo-drama, like I do, this is the one for you. Is it possible to get excited about a depressing show?

Need I say More

You Are The Fool
You are a fascinating person who is way beyond the concerns of this world.
Young at heart, you are blissfully unaware of any dangers ahead.
You are a true wanderer – it has be difficult finding your place in this world.
Full of confidence, you are likely to take a leap of faith.

Your fortune:

You are about to embark on a new phase in your life.
This may mean changing locations, jobs, friends, or love status.
You are open about what the future will bring, and free of worry.
You have made your peace with fate, and you’re ready to start down your new path.
