Muppets & Mucky Muck

I love Austin. Where else could a family avoid all of the college town craziness surrounding a Texas football home game by spending a Saturday night in the park, watching a Rolling Roadshow presentation of The Muppet Movie complete with sing-along and post-movie Q&A with Paull Williams (the writer/composer of all of the film’s music)? Nowhere, I tell you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today I spent a couple of hours at Hill Country Weavers where I signed a few books, knitted, chatted and shopped with some of the women who who where kind enough to stop by to see me. I bought a couple of hanks of hand-dyed, blue, varigated Atacama alpaca that I’m going to use to make a gift. Hanging out in that environment made me really miss being able to go to Stitch n’ Bitch meetings over the past two years.
Anyway, I met a bunch of lovely people one of which, Lenise, had a knitlicious tattoo that definitely deserves props!

Tomorrow’s a brand new episode of Knitty Gritty, so set your Tivo’s! The guest M.K. Carrol, will show how to make a kitschy-cool sushi toilet paper cozie and bamboo-esque tank cover. The projects are really cute and utilize some intermediate techniques like, provisional cast-on and short rows. You won’t wanna miss it!

Now, I have a date with some Drano. My plumbing is screwed up…again. Currently, the house smells vaguely of raw sewage sweetened by some unidentifiable mucky-muck coming up through the shower. Good times. Oh, old houses, you quirky beasts!

Nightie night,
Vickie

    Finally got the nerve to post. (feel like a super star yet) I think you are too awesome and are truely inspiring, because of you my daughters don’t think i’m quite so square. All my knitting and spinning hobbies where so so granny before but thanks to you I am cool again. Thanks for inspiring a new generation. I have even got some of my daughters friends knitting and they are wanting to start a knitting club on the playground (they are 9).
    By the way I am a huge Lisa Loeb fan and loved seeing her in the Knit Bit and in Knit.1 with you. (Got my daughter turned on to her too) Thanks again from a not so square Mom. Stacy
