I love the fastest woman. She’s got the hammer down! I wish I knitted Myrtle shawls as fast as she knits Shreddies. I wish she could be in my house to motivate me to finish the gauge swatch!

No one was home yesterday to take pictures of me with my newly-finished Dashing mitts, so instead you get this.

Young PimpLord knows, I understand how hard it is to make it as a female pimp in North America. But this little girl is well on her way to slappin’ hos and wearing crocodile shoes. At this point she’s only got the earrings and the coat, but with a little bling, maybe a ring with a 4 inch naked lady protruding from it, a hat with a big feather and of course the requisite pimp cane, she could certainly apprentice with Snoop Dogg for a few years before striking out on her own. Once she’s built up her resume, the world is her oyster. Her heavily made-up, syphilis-filled, cocaine-snorting oyster.

Bitch, where my money? I need me some dunkaroos, ho.

Yikes!

I’ve been doing lots of knitting! But my writing has been funnelled into my thesis. So starting next week, I’ll be getting back to blogging once again.

While reading about Kimberly’s contest at Some Bunny’s Love this morning, I discovered that Kimberly is a “Nascar Knitter.” A whole KAL devoted to Nascar!, I thought to myself. I wonder if there’s an equivalent to F1. I didn’t find one, but I did find this:

Here’s an ad for the LA county fair found at potterknitter, who also has some cute cute cute li’l baby socks up for show and tell. I can’t stop watching this video for some reason. It’s just so well done.
