Wow… I’ve been totally neglecting my blog. I’ve been putting every free minute into The Knit Girl’s site. I really hope everyone is enjoying it!
However I have been working on the Roller Girl legwarmers from Stitch N Bitch Nation. They are so Zombie colors, if there is such a thing. Black with green stripes, cool I know!
The only problem is I think they are going to be a little on the big side but if they are put over jeans they may actually work! Damn me and my “swatching is too boring for me, just get me to the good stuff” attitude! Maybe I’ll learn one day… ok, probably not!
Sunday while sitting in the local coffee shop, working away on the site… I went and checked the Knit Girl’s myspace and I had an email from… well… it couldn’t have been, BUT it was!!! Devil Doll herself! If you don’t know who she is, she is an awesome Rockabilly singer! She has been one of my favorites since my ex-boy gave me her cd about 4 years ago.
Well she was just saying that she was actually a knitter and that she is in a “rock-n-roll” knitting group! YES a group of musicians that knit, this gets two thumbs up!(Ok, so at this point I sat there stunned, mouth gapping, probably with drool down the side of my face)
She went on to ask about the Knitted Mohawk Hat (ok, still can’t breath), and how cool our site was (by now, I’m basically peeing in my pants)!
First instincts were to write the following:
You rock, you are awesome, I wish I was your best friend in the world…. We are just alike you and me, cause we like the same music, we both knit and I too am about to start knitting the ‘mohawk hat’. We could totally be BFFs!!!
Second instincts (or actually when my brain kicked in) I realized that would be a little on the psycho side. So I just told her that I really loved the new album (if you haven’t heard it, you really need to check it out!) and where to get the pattern for the hat.
We wrote back and forth about the music and we both made each other’s day – and yes she did say I made her day so stop laughing I’m not CRAZY!!!!!
Well that was my story of the week… maybe the story of the year… hell it could be the story of my life. Ummmm, that is taking it too far huh? OK, its just a good story!
See you knitters on The Knit Girl pad!
