I realize that’s a double-negative, and that my therapist means that I should see more of you, but what James meant when they sang that is “My therapist is telling me to stay away from you because you drive me crazy and not in the good way, but in the Britney Spears You Drive Me Crazy head-shaving way.”
For some reason I like to pretend I’m a prude. I’m not. I’m coarse, I’m vulgar, I appreciate a good dirty joke, but all in the privacy of my own little world. And I don’t like it when people bust into my own little world with their vulgarities. I’m also very liberal in my definition of “my own little world.” By liberal I mean it’s ok when I’m coarse and vulgar, but not anyone else. This is something I need to work on, and so I shall. I get quite uptight and judgmental when something goes down that’s not to my liking. Realizing you have a problem is the first step. Living in a glass house, as I am, I should not be throwing stones. Which is all my way of saying I do solemnly swear to no longer get uptight and panties-in-a-wad-ed over anything on ravelry ever again. Thank you.
So what’s up with my knitting? I’ll tell you what’s up. I’ve got that Noro sock I’m working on when I’m very very bored, and that’s about it. And that’s because I now know how to crochet and let me tell you, I take back every bitchy, condescending thing I ever said or thought about crochet.
That’s going to be a Babette blanket for my son. He’s too young to know that the 70s were the height, the pinnacle, the zenith of tacky ugliness and that these colors bring back all of that in one fell swoop. He’s in love with it, which thrills me to so many pieces. That yarn is Cotton Ease. It’s so soft. It’s so cheap. It is so machine washable. I can’t wait until it’s done! And then I’ll make another one to throw in the couch, and Loverman and I shall snuggle under it and ok, now I realize that yarn needs to be machine washable, too, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
