For best supporting extremity in a non-speaking role. And the winner is???????
Ok so I didn't win anything or even get a word on camera but I had a chance to use this silly picture of me holding the Oscar from last month when we took some relatives to see the Kodak Theater and they had an Oscar history exhibition. To bad I wasn't wearing my tuxedo, it would have been more believable, and yes I do have my own tuxedo. If you had a chance to see my TV debut last week you have seen my hands at their best or at least knitting. The link is on the last post.
Very busy shopping weekend, Secret Pal has started again so I did some online shopping and some LYS shopping.
I had something happen today that I must say took me by surprise. When I opened the door to La Petite Knitterie this afternoon I was met with “Hey, It’s Mr. Twisted.” I know Kat and Lori Lawson from the shop but I didn’t recognize the lady but she knew me. I was speechless. It was a little uncomfortable for me to be recognized by what I published on my blog but also honored that people take the time to read my musings. I was a little uncomfortable in that I wandered around looking at the yarn but not really looking at it. When we write in these online dialogs we only think a few of our friends and a few other knitters who comment are really paying attention until she started asking me about pictures I forgot I even posted. I just didn’t think anyone was really paying that much attention. I don’t think it’s going to change the way I write or the subject matter I blog about but I hope when she comments I will be able to enjoy her blog as well. It was fun to hear that she used my blog to show her husband he’s not the only male knitter out there.
Oh there is some knitting content here too
Mrs. Twisted finished her Bombshell top from Big Girl Knits
Made from Blue Sky Alpaca 100% Alpaca
And she finished a pair of socks in the book “Knitting on the road” by Nancy Bush.
The pattern is Conwy in Posh yarn Lucia (75% merino and 25% cashmere) in color way Twinkle.
My socks are coming along well. No major problems (knock on wood) for a little while. I’ll post a pic when the first one is complete. Soon I’m sure.a
