They call me Baby Field Greens

Recently I have fallen victim to the dark side. This is my cry for help! I have enrolled in the Knitting Mafia of Blacksburg. I'd say we have about 7 members right now. We have taken hokie colored yarn and using our knowledge of guerilla war tactics, hidden skeins all over Blacksburg! Ha, ha, ha! Ok, so we're not very vicious, but you feel pretty naughty doing it, which is why it's o so fun. We should all come up with knitting gang names...what's yours?
Mine is Baby Field Greens, it's really my motorcycle gang name though. I belong to a motorcycle gang, umm ok so it's really just my family and we call it a gang, but we look seriously badass in our matching tees and chaps. The pic above is of the rest of the gang, there names from left to right are : Black Mamba, Seitan's Angel, and Scampy. Annie, the dog, does not have a name or tee yet, because she refuses to get in the side car. Black Mamba has suggested sedation to get her in the sidecar, I'm not sure that's a great idea. I think it would still be hard to get her in, afterall she does weigh 150 pounds. I bet we could get Purl in, what do you think Gina?
In other news, I have been puppy sitting purl. It was loads of fun. I took her to lacrosse, we went to the park where we both met boys (thank you Purl), and we stayed up late and drooled while we watched Bear climb mountains. Well, I was drooling at Bear and she was drooling at the fudgesicle I was eating, but it was a deep bonding experience nonetheless.
I have been good though and I am projecting to finish my Farmhouse sweater this weekend. I can't wait to finish it! By the way, I saw on IMDB that the completion date for the Friday Night Knitting Club movie is in June 2008. Does that mean that they are definitely going to make it, anyone know?

I never did get any skeins to hide. Thanks a lot, Gina.......... Who's the stud?

Loren said...

That's Bear Grylls...the sexiest man on the planet. He's the star of a show called man vs wild. He parachutes into the wilderness and has to survive with basically nothing. ahhh he's so hot

Gina said...

Debbie, Debbie, Debbie, cool your jets, I'll give ya some yarn to hide anytime you want!! As for MY Knitting Mafia name...I need to think on this. Give me a few days...

Nancy said...

Hmmmmmm. We should get mafia tattoos or something.

Not sure what my name should be, either.

And Bear is definitely what my mama would call a nice piece of mancandy.

I must admit that I look bad ass riding my scooter in my leathers, right up until i take my Vera Bradley purse out of my travel box!!
Great pictures...and Scampi is definately cuter than Bear...but then i'm not married to Bear!!
LYMI.. Seitan's Angel

Mimi said...

OK.. Im outta the loop here... who is Bear?

Im so glad to see you back in blog land!!!

Bear might be better looking than "Survivorman," but...sorry, Loren!!!...I know you love him, but I saw "Man V. Wild" on Friday with Hubby and it was this Kenya thing...I just wasn't buying the realism as much. Don't hate me!!

But I totally love your Mafia name. I need to think of one. I like the whole idea, however! My brain has been too fried with sick people and crabby husbands and a botched ticker and pending real estate agents...o my!
