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!

Miracle! It has actually cooled down quite a bit (in the inferno that is Florida) and it feels like knitting weather so I've been baking of course! Since there's Christmas knitting on the needles, I can't very well show you that but this banana bread is going fast! It's a simple Tyler Florence recipe and I've been enjoying it a little more than I should.

I've also been sprucing up the place a bit. I bought new living room tables and this little change really dressed up the room. I decided the place was getting a bit too serious so I re-covered the kitchen chairs in a fun, retro fabric. Now, everytime I walk into the kitchen I giggle like Goldie Hawn. It's just what I needed.

For those of you who Rav-el, I joined the CPAAG swap and my package is off to another continent tomorrow. There's all sorts of fun stuff in there and I can't wait to see what my swappee thinks of my handy-work!

Happy Thanksgiving and all my best to you and yours this holiday season!
