Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


Shrek. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.

Yes, "Shrek" is good; don't go for one of the sequels. Alternatively, if you want an older one, try 'Aladdin'; Robin Williams is very good as the genie. Then again, there's very, very old -- a classic, like 'Cinderella', 'Snow White' or
the classy and once-revolutionary, "Fantasia" -- definitely a good one to knit by!

We just got a snow dump overnight last night; we needed the moisture, but I'd have preferred rain...given that April is only 2 sleeps away!

You have to watch the Shreks in order, and the 2nd one is the weak link. The first is fabulous, and I have been told (I haven't seen it) that 3 is as good as 1.

The summer switch was turned on here, the humidity is back and my hair is frizzed. I'd take rain, but all we get is heat and hair-frizzing humidity.

Spring Doldrums

If I were the only slug around here I would just accept my shortcomings, but most folk around here seem to be dragging a bit this week, so we can blame it on the season - which teases us with balmy days and then slams us with frost, sprinkles us with pollen but sends empty clouds, and plonks income tax smack down in the middle of it all.

Anyway, I hadn't meant to just fall silent, but not one of the muses has inspired me with literary flow. I'm not even working on a knitting project I like. I'm knitting those birthday socks and while it's nice yarn, it's full of breaks. I don't mind working in ends on my knitting, actually rather like it, but I hate how the breaks interrupt the rapid flow of sock production. Thank goodness they're almost done.
And since I am so fractious and I already know what I want to start knitting next, I am glad the Creativity Jar offered up this brainless activity for this week:
Watch a cartoon movie
I haven't watched a cartoon movie in ... well, so long I can't remember when. I'll check out the library section first, because we do have some on the shelves – and then I'll go down to the local video rental place and see what they have. I suspect it's going to be an old one, because I'm not too fond of the animation that's popular right now. Too harsh, too angled, and something, not sure quite what, but there is a meanness underlying too much of it these days.

Oh. I remember. We watched Pocahontas sometime before 2000.

And on the needles, next week, will be another knitted clutch, this time in a cotton rayon blend in the prettiest vivid blue. I like these purses because they're quick and beautiful and I am going to make the blue one as a sample and then make myself a lime green one for spring. There's just enough sewing in them to make the change interesting.

Tomorrow is BD's BD and if I'm going to have birthday socks for him, I best get knitting. But for my knitting friends I want to share this sweetness. When he was coming out of surgery 2 weeks ago the doc asked how he felt and he said “Great! I have on my lucky socks”. Christmas socks knit by TheQueen. It's so nice to be appreciated.
