Fugly and not

I tried to knit a baby bootie with the leftover yarn from tulip, it didn’t work out. It turned out lookin like a  moon boot

Fugly bootie
Go ahead and try to tell me its not fugly. I’ve already frogged it even though Kailey thought it was mighty tasty.
cutie pie

mmmm… wool.
Susie, sneaky Susie, tagged me with 7 weird things about me. Even though I’ve done this meme before, you guys apparently know that I have lots of weird things to keep ya’ll occupied for hours. Really hours.

So, here are the rules.
1. Link to your tagger and post rules
2. Share 7 facts about yourself, some random and some weird
3. Tag 7 people at the end of post and list their names
4. Let them know they were tagged by a comment on their blog

  1. Back in the day I chatted on mIRC. My handle was Bratzy.
  2. I’ve been told that my outgoing message on my awnsering machine sounds “hostile”
  3. I’m really bad about returning library books and movies. (Only these things, If a friend lends me something, like clothes. I make sure to give it back. Quickly) Thank goodness the library books are only 5 cents a day and blockbuster just has the restocking fee.
  4. I can not fall asleep with out a blanket, not a sheet. Doesn’t matter if its 11billion degrees.
  5. I haven’t been able to wear my rings since I was about 7 months pregnant with Kailey, even though I’m back to my pre-pregnancy weight. When I wear a necklace it hurts my neck and back after a few hours. But I still can’t resist pretty little baubles like this: pinky squared yarn necklace by mackNecklace from
  6. People who say to me “your busy.” or “you’ve got your hands full” really piss me off. (These are people who are strangers, just see me and my kids in a store. Or walking in the mall. Etc. And its not like my kids are dirty and climbing around in a sugar high. If anything Allysa is dancing.)
  7. How do I explain this? When I crave a food I eat a whole bunch of it, then I don’t eat it or think of it for months… or years. Like sour cream and cheddar chips, had to have them in August. Now, ick. No thanks.
  8. I’ve known how to ski since Kindergarten and I still suck at it.
  9. I’m really bad about talking about knitting project that is in progress. I think its because the process is something that I just enjoy and can’t describe. And I get bored reading about it. I’ve also become really bad about showing FO’s I finished the mini-van socks earlier this month (2 weeks ago)

Mini Van socks, done!

Vesper Merino sock, 2.00mm dpns, CO 64 sts, picot edge, flap heel, my standard toe, 10sts/inch, they’re to small for me, their going to Mom.

oh. yeah. It’s supposed to be 7 things, not 9! See what I told you. Hours people. Hours!

I guess… I tag.. um.. I’m trying to think of people who haven’t done this one yet… uhhhh…

  1. Jamie steal your kids fab mitts while you knit him a new pair
  2. Carrie K I don’t think you’ve done this one yet…
  3. Heather because the postal service was quick!
  4. Diane if you can find the time while your trying to find a flat.
  5. Jenn because your blog needs more random babble ; )
  6. Kelly I drool over your sock basket.
  7. Esther cause nothing helps the blah’s like a bit of weird.

  1. Thank you 😉

    I’m the oldest of seven, and even back in those days when most families had four or five, we still got looks. These days a family with four or more is considered unusual. I have lots of friends though, with families of 8 and 9 children. I wish I’d been able to have that many!

    The yarn came today. Thanks so much.

  2. I too can’t fall asleep with out a blanket. That why my air conditioners usually on at night right into Oct.

    Kailey is just too cute and I love those socks.

    Hopefully I’ll get the meme posted either later today or tomorrow morning

  3. Well, technically no, I haven’t done the 7 weird things. I did do the 6 weird things though.

    I’d so say something to you like “you’ve got your hands full. ” I have no kids. My cat is hard enough for me to handle. 🙂

    I do that food thing too! I’m just an all or nothing girl.

  4. I am the same way with movies and books, one word my friend…Netflix, it’s a god send, and really quick too.

    I am the same way with blankets, 100 degrees out? Don’t care, pass the quilt…just turn up the ac okay honey?
