Spurious accusations

I am shocked. I was accused earlier today of not updating this blog regularly, and quite frankly I see no reason to quietly accept this dreadful slur. I update every single time I have enough alcohol in my system, and if this isn't often enough for people then I suggest they send me margarita mix and remedy the problem themselves (and yes,that means you, Northern Monkey).

So anyway, I have thought about yesterday's list and pondered over the comments. I'll be making some decisions about the various projects in the next few weeks and no doubt several of them will be heading for the frog pond. Quite which ones is still to be decided, but there are several likely candidates. I also remembered another WIP, the space invader socks. They are really, really cool and I love knitting them, but there is a size issue that needs resolving. I'll be frogging these soon, but will defintely be redoing them at some point. Here's the sock before it's ripped back.

I thought I should also post pictures of my buffday booty. This is me with some Noro Iro that Helen sent me, and some natural coloured alpaca from Kai.

And I got another knitterly present today from Super Monkey. Here I am with the gift all wrapped up.

And when I opened it there were the coolest lace up gloves inside! it's very difficult to take photos of both arms at once, so I settled for just one modelled glove. Looky.

She's a clever monkey, is that one :)

(Thankyou for the various offers of the Swallowtail pattern - I've arranged to borrow one so I'm all sorted now. Knitters are the best.)

Margarita mix sounds like Effort. I am allergic to Effort. How about I send you some happy thoughts instead? Guaranteed to enrich your life (maybe)? Or you could make me mojitos?

It's just frozen lime juice and triple secretaries. That's what that rabbit said.

In comparison with your list, I have absolutely nubbin knitting at the moment at all. NUBBIN! I'm either at a loss or in a fug. I wound up some yarn to start Brickwork, but the Ocado man distracted me and I never got started.

Triple SEC. It's an orange flavored liqueur.

It's too early to be drunk yet. Even for Badger. Give her another twenty minutes.

TWENTY MINUTES IS UP! She surely can't prove the Hoob right?

As I recall, the Hoob has already been correct once. I don't see it happening again in our lifetimes.
