I haven't been watching Project Runway because I was under the mistaken impression that it was a contest for gorgeous women attempting to become models. So clearly, I've never paid the slightest bit of attention to it, despite at least Marji, Kim and Sue asking me if I watched it, because, designers! Sewing! Creating! In unbelievable short amounts of time. I love Tim Gunn already, just discovering the forbidden patternbooks in Keith's room (they had a mini marathon yesterday so I've seen...the last 6 shows plus the new episode last night) and his outraged tone of disgust."Those books." Now that's thrilling TV.
I can't stand Detroit Tattoo. I mean, Jeffrey. Unless Angela's mother was being much worse than she appeared on camera, he should have just sucked it up and been civil to her. He didn't like Angela and took it out on her mother, the passive agressive little worm. His outfit was okay though. If Kayne was channeling Elvis of the 70's, Jeffrey was channeling the rock stars of the same era. I'd probably wear something more like Vincent had on, because I'm not so much about jet-setting eye catching togs as I am about comfort.
I loved seeing all their moms though. And Michael Kors mom! Cool.
That hopefully horrible enough picture so that you cannot see my dreadful sewing, is a shirt I used to LOVE that I made years ago. It's from a wedding gown pattern and it had the added benefit of no buttonholes. I can't sew buttonholes on a machine to save my soul. I have to handsew them or they look like a drunken four year old made them.
The Candy Popcorn mitten
s. Frankly, it looks like someone already ate the candy popcorn.....but, never mind. I can't decide if I hate them it just because they're its so busy. They'It would probably look better in stockinette stitch, but I'm following a pattern because the pattern? Is adorable. Her handspun mittens look gorgeous.
Happy Birthday, Teri! Of Knitting, With Beads. I have no idea what's going on, but everytime I link her, or even go to her page, my computer crashes. (teripersing.blogspot.com, with the http in front of it). Maybe you'll have better luck.
Also Aven's birthday was last Monday! She wasn't in the August Birthday Swap but she's an August Baby.
Oh! KT is hosting a Frog Contest. Check it out.
Think I can finish King Hereafter by midnight tonight? There's seven hundred something pages and I think I'm on page 75. It's interesting, I like it, but I'm not reading it all that fast. It's the names. That's my theory. Thorfinn? No wonder he chnaged it to MacBeth.
