Trash Talkin’ on the Wrong Day.

Let’s do a little trash talking today, mmmkay?

The name of this shawl is certainly right.  A big ole shipwreck.  It is pretty, I’ll give it that, but yo, k2tog?  For 55 rounds?  580 stitches in those rounds?

I would rather take my eyeballs out with a grapefruit spoon.


Maybe it’s the third Montego bay I’m working on, or the tediousness of Icarus… but enough with the yo, k2tog already.

I would do a WIP update, but since I returned from L.A. I’ve been busying myself with doing stuff around the love shack.  And you don’t need to see a picture of a sock with two more pattern rounds done.

Do you?

Texas returns this Saturday, so there is lots to do.  His birthday is the 29th and he flies  out the day before.  I’m going to try my hand at a red velvet cake,  make a pan of his favorite food and maybe even some deviled eggs.  I’m also going to try to hold out giving him his gifts the moment he gets home.

It’s a good one.


He’ll never guess what it is.

I lurve birthdays!

Even if I can’t get presents out on time.

Sadly, he’ll be on the road for my birthday.

Yes, we’re both Aries … just in case you’re keeping track.

The love shack looking up through the fog.  Down in front is the fishing shack that two little old ladies built.  Texas is stabilizing, putting on new siding and windows, and doing a new roof.

If you notice, the roof is now at two different levels and he wants to make it a regular roof.   I’m aftaid it will lose some of it’s rustic charm.

Although it is going to make a nice exercise room and dying place.  It has a stove, counters and a sink.  Woot!

Yes, the hill is that steep.  We’re formulating a plan to tier it so you don’t have a heart attack walking back up it.

Now for something completely unrelated.  I give you this week’s Unconscious Mutterings!

I hope I didn’t just use up all of my posts for the week with this one.

Happy Wednesday y’all!

  1. I was thinking the fishing shack could be a Man Cave, but you guys are still in that lovey squishy stage.

    That photo looks like a painting.

  2. Hey, Texas shares his birthday with my older son and my oldest friend. I love the Aries peeps in my life.
    And that shack. And I love K2tog, yo’s. Someone has to.

  3. Man cave? ROFLPIMP. Good holy cow that’s funny.
    I think you should convince him to add a row of narrow windows along the vertical in the roof line. I’ll hide out there after I’ve committed mariticide. I’ll need some deviled eggs, please.

  4. Love the love shack. I also like the two tier roof. Shipwreck is so gorgeous, but I feel the same way…it’s not worth doing k2tog yo ad nauseam.

  5. Please don’t break Texas upon his return.

    Dying? Or dyeing? Cause if it’s the former I’m not visiting. :p

    And what’s wrong with not G Rated?! Men.


  6. That shawl is really cute. A billion k2tog & yo’s? That’s got to be better than a million colors in one row.
    Maggie is adorable.
    The Man Cave will lose its charm w/a roof that won’t come off in a big storm. OTOH…….

  7. Hurray for Saturday and you Aries folks.
    Love the view from the lake! Excellent place to dye in. So roller skating might get you a dip in the lake? 😀

  8. Let’s not forget the freakin’ “randomly placed beads” in that shawl. I think Cookie should knit it for you.

    I lurves the love shack, and the dyeing room too. No dying. Please.

  9. the love shack looks so romantic amidst all that fog. i can imagine a nice fire inside to warm up in.

    eeesh. now look who’s getting squishy. :-S

  10. Hi!!!! Long time no talk… Let me update you. My birthfather is the biggest jerk in the whole wide world. Let me rephrase that. He is the biggest asshole in the whole wide world. I want nothing to do with him. LOL. But besides that. How have you been? I miss you like crazy. I need your new phone number. Cause I don’t have a way of getting in contact with you. I miss you!

  11. Well, yeah, the yo, k2tog might get boring, but the photo showing it blowing in the wind makes me want to knit it anyway…
