Neighbors in Humanity

That's right Gina I just couldn't help it! I had to relive that Halmark card moment somehow. Let me explain to everyone who was not lucky enough to be at the Vogue Knitting Party at TNNA (ya, I couldn't resist rubbing that in either), exactly what I'm talking about. Gina, Mimi, Debbie, Belinda, and I were all at the party and the topic of the squares for the VT afghans kept coming up. We were talking with the cool chicks of Modern Yarn about how even if you weren't there and had no direct connection with what happened, people were still affected by it. It was at this moment that Gina interjected with the beauty pageant queen comment of "Well, we're all neighbors in humanity". I'm lucky that I didn't have a mouthful of a cocktail or I may have sprayed it all over Debbie Bliss. The only way it could have been better is if she had made a grand arm gesture with a slight head nod. It was the funniest moment at TNNA, seriously, I'm laughing now writing about it.


Here's a pic of my Farmhouse cottonblossom sweater that everyone has been wanting to see. I LOVE it! Note the new hair cut. I cut about 11 inches off and I got it highlighted for the first time ever.



And here's a tam that I made yesterday with Farmhouse Fat Sheep (great name for a yarn). The pattern is from Knitting Nature. Norah Gaughan is a knitting rock star.






I just couldn't help myself and I had to arrange the baby skeins of Farmhouse Bopeep yarn into a yarnbow. Yarnbow was a typo and I was about to delete it, but I like it!

I arrange all yarn into rainbows, I love how it looks. I guess other people like it too, because I sold quite a bit of it today.

While I was arranging and posing for the above pics, I saw my dad holding our cat Pete and realized he looked like Dr. Evil from Austin Powers. I begged him to pose with the pinky at his mouth claiming it would get me more comments. I know, shameless, but it just may work....ha ha ha (Dr.Evil laugh)

We were not talking to the Modern yarn girls...it was the Threaded Bliss girls from Tennessee, FYO! You look just like your dad but with hair!

Blissful Debbie said...

So that's why I didn't recognize you in the TNNA pictures! I like your new fancy hair! do you feel naked, though? I always feel weird when I get a ton of hair cut off (which I do every couple years)-but it way cuts down on shower time!
