The Trauma is Over + Other News

Just a quick post today with a couple of newsworthy items …

First of all, I’m pleased to report that the lost object described in my last post has returned after a wild journey through dangerous territory. I shan’t describe this morning’s exciting happenings to you, as I fear such a story would not elicit the giggles of the last post but would rather cause a wave of retching and heaving throughout the knitting community. Suffice it to say that the object is back and my husband is thankfully none the worse for wear. He may, however, never muster the courage to actually use the item again. We shall see. Hubby has suggested that we proclaim August 12th as a new holiday to commemorate The Passing of the Teeth.

The other newsworthy tidbit is a review of Fearless Fibers on Moshknit, a knitting podcast by the utterly fabulous Brooklynne. I can’t thank Brooklynne enough for the over-the-top wonderful review! If you haven’t listened to this podcast before, you may want to check it out. It’s a mix of music and knit talk that’s offbeat and entertaining. In my first few moments of listening, I wasn’t sure that it was the podcast for me, but the more I listened, the more caught up in it I became. When Brooklynne told her readers that reverse stockinet is just plain wrong for any garment (paraphrasing here), I knew I had found a kindred spirit.

Have a great day and get some knitting done!

Yay for found lost items! What on earth would you clean it with? Bleach? mouthwash? I'm getting shivery just thinking about it!

Hi Deb -- I've been drooling over your yarns on Etsy and then saw you (haven't listened yet) on the MoshKnit, and clicked over to your blog! What a hilarious story! I'm wondering though, if you mean August 12th as opposed to "December 12th as you wrote in your post...

Okay, going to go listen to your review now!
