My sincerest apologies to the person who sent me my this postcard. This was sent to me weeks ago. I've been busy, so it has taken me a while to post a picture. I hope you didn't think that your secret was unappreciated. Thank you so much.

Here it is...

It says: The beauty and absurdity of life sometimes makes my heart nearly burst.

It is a picture of Audrey Hepburn from My Fair Lady. On the other side of the picture is a child in a hospital bed who was a bomb victim from WWII. I don't know if the juxtoposition of images was accidental or intentional, but it is interesting.

Thank you again swap partner.

32  Fair isle hat problem in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by chrispykreme on: October 30, 2005 07:35:07 AM
I knit my brother a black hat with white skulls going around it for christmas using fair isle. I knit it loose enough so that it is stretchy, but when you are stranding those colors, it's still not as stretchy as the rest of the hat that is only one color...which leads to the problem. The middle band of the hat is less elastic than the rest, making the hat feel weird when you are putting it on. Is there a way to avoid that problem when doing fair isle hats. Luckily the hat is wool, so it's stretchy enough, but it's really bothering me.

The hat...basically.

All the stranding on the wrong side.

Excuse the sunday morning look. I was concentrating on taking that picture myself.

Yeah, I recieved an awesome knitting needle roll from megaknits. It's made from denim with a print fabric inside. I absolutely love it. Some of my needles have already moved in.

thanks so much to megaknits. you truly brightened my monday.

My needles nesting.

All snug as a bug in a rug!

34  Adrienne Vittadini Fall 2004 Pattern Book in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by chrispykreme on: September 24, 2005 08:17:14 PM
Has anyone made anything from this book? I saw some patterns from this book at http://www.loopyarn.com/Detail.bok?no=120 and they looked so cool. I especially loved this one.

I don't think I am at that skill level yet, but it's nice to dream. They had a lot of interesting sweaters. I was just curious if someone had made anything from this book. It might be nice to buy and hold on to until I get some skillz!  Cheesy

I just got my August postcard today. I love the pin-up girl.

It reads: Last night I had an erotic dream about my best friend's husband. Today I called him just to flirt.

I received this postcard yesterday. It's cool. It must be made of sandpaper because it has a texture to it that reminds me of the beach.

It reads: I tell people I am looking for a summer job. But really, all I want to do is sleep on the beach. I already secretly skipped two job interviews.

I also recieved the postcard that was posted by ilonavg & norsgoebel. i was confused why i got 2 postcards. but that's all cleared up now.

thank you to both my senders. your cards were very candid, honest, shocking, saddening, and human. i appreciate your courage in making them.

[I read the obits every day searching for those under 45. It fills me with hope knowing the wait might not be too long.]

On the postcard are actual obituaries.

I just received the most awesome Napoleonesque package today from Jennybean. I asked her to post a picture if she had one, since I just have a camera phone. If she doesn't have one, I will certainly post a picture later of me enjoyin' my goods. (I edited this to include the pictures of the stuff I got)

Here's what a received:

- A soft handmade tote bag (lined with denim frabic) that says "Get your own tots" and shows a big serving of delicious tots. This will now become my new knitting bag.

- A red, lined, zipper pouch with embroidary of the infamous moonboots. The embroidary is with white thread on black felt. It's hilarious.

-Last, but not least, a very cool red and white striped cell phone cozy with a picture of Napoleon in his time machine. all i need is a ringtone that say "Hold on, I forgot to put in the crystals."

I loved everything I got. All the objects were done so nicely. This was my first swap and I am glad that it turned out to be so SWEET!!

39  Ruffle scarf pattern? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by chrispykreme on: February 14, 2005 04:30:51 PM
Does anyone know where I might find a pattern similar to this? I really like the ruffled edge. I don't need any of the fancy work in the middle. I know that "Scarf Style" has a ruffle scarf, but that one seems to "turn" more than this one. Uncommon goods sells this for over $120 and I thought surely there must be a way to make it. If not, it is certainly lovely to look at.

40  My first knitted project...a purse in Knitting: Completed Projects by chrispykreme on: December 29, 2004 08:52:05 PM
Well, I knitted my very first project ever!! A purse none the less! Mine has none of the pretty bells and whistles as did the purses of the thread's author...but I am just so proud to finish something that I am glowing!! Grin

I haven't decided if I am going to line it yet. And I have no clue what I am going to do with a 6" x 12" purse. But that still won't take the joy away.

Although in retrospect...I will not use Sz 8 needles again. Something definately bigger. I need instant satisfaction.

Sorry for the pictures. That's about as good as my camera phone gets!
