Easy as Shari's pie.

I have a cold. 

I would like to welcome the newest followers to the Twelvedaysold blog!!  Let's hear it for Amy Johnson, writer extraordinaire; Jenna Minkler, (almost typed Cox--she just got married) massage therapist extraordinaire; and Christy, sister extraordinaire.  Christy does not have a website, but she created a profile so she could follow me.  That's a good sister.

Welcome, guys.  Welcome to the most boring site on the internet.  What are you doing here anyway?

As previously stated, I have a cold.  It's been 7 months now since the GREAT SICKNESS OF OCTOBER, so it's not so bad.  I did get it Friday night through Sunday night, so it was thoughtful enough to ruin my entire weekend.  But it was a good knitting weekend, I tell you what. Here's a washcloth:

I'm not going to lie.  I made up my own pattern.  "Pattern" being a loose term here because this is just a washcloth I decreased at the top, but hey can you decrease a washcloth?  THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT. Click for the Craftster post (please comment.  I'm desperate there.  Well, here too).

I also finished this sock!

Some of you older fans of mine may remember me starting this sock a long time ago.  I knit that sock.  And then I knit its mate.  And then I realized there was no way I could wear them comfortably because I apparently made the socks to fit the likes of a deer's leg.  I don't think that was a good enough visual.  What I mean is I made the sock LONG enough for my foot but not WIDE enough.  And I thought first sock denial wouldn't apply to me.

I don't have any new pictures of the cats, but here's one from last year when I was working on crafts during Christmastime and got up for a minute. 

And no I didn't finish the glove.  We're currently not talking to each other.


  1. oh no! what happened with the glove? It was so lovely... why have you two parted?

  2. I'm here because I find you amusing, and I don't actually talk to you on the phone or anything. But hey! I live two miles away now! It's a sure thing. We measured in the car today.

  3. Aw! I feel loved! Thanks bigggest fan.
    I love the washcloth (and the socks). Your posts are always so amusing! I love it (and you)

  4. My aunt gave me the gift of knitting for Christmas, much like Chuck Norris gave Jesus the gift of beard. Except she's going to teach me to knit, and I'm not sure how the whole beard-student thing worked out.

  5. I need to stop reading your posts cuz they're actually making me want to get a CAT!
    The towel and the sock turned out great but I'm still wondering HOW you got that whole towel done in one weekend. You must have been really sick! ^_^

  6. Mona, my mother is downsizing her cat population, and I know of one full grown, litterbox trained, amusing blob of a cat that you might like if that's your flavor.
    Katie, WRITE MORE. I have exhausted your archives and I want mooooooore to amuse me!


Hey there, player! Since this is an old blog, I get a lot of spam comments, hence the word verification (which I HATE). If you're a real person, know that I still read everything written here :)
