Shut Up! Shut Up! Shut Up!

This weekend I considered putting the blog on hiatus. I haven't been knitting tons of stuff and who's really interested in my warped point of view and life. Well, apparently my new friend Angela from Italy by way of Tennessee is interested enough to sign up "to follow" my blog. I know, I'm a nerd but I thought that was cool and I plan on returning the favor by following her. See, it's there in the sidebar, I'm practically famous. Angela and I just met and her life is the reverse version of mine.

She was single, met a man on the internet, visited him in Italy, couldn't live without him, moved from Tennessee to Italy.

My life ... I was partnered (they just passed all these laws, I can't say married anymore), lived in California, he left, I moved to Hell (sometimes known as Florida).

Do you see how that works? It's all good fun and stalking that doesn't threaten your life or require a restraining order. At least I hope not?

In honor of this occasion, I thought I should post some knitting. It's not Christmas related. It's a dish towel for my kitchen but I think the pattern is worthy of a sweater (well maybe not that great) but bitchin' for a towel that I'll mop up spills with!

Angela, my new friend ... welcome and benvenuti!

Wow, I am honoured! Thank ewe!! That pattern design is awesome! I like it very much. (Maybe we should do a small swap after the holidays!) I once lived in Florida, I dislike it there. Visiting it is ok, but nothing more.

Please do, it's my pleasure! That pattern is actually free on Rav. I think it's called a Lacy Mock Cable pattern and looks a lot more impressive than it is. I really liked it and may keep it for myself although it was made for a co-worker. We shall see. Never live in Florida again, learn from all our mistakes. ;-)
