I drink your Milkshake, I drink it up!
I've been without a functioning f key on my laptop for 11 days. I can no longer type my favorite bad word. I'm forced to copy and paste the letter that comes between E and G each time I need to use it. MUCK YOU sounds so neutered and unproductive.
I exhausted myself knitting all those baby socks (Sock number Nine is on the needles for those tallying the crazy) and decided I needed a break. Something more instant gratification-y, something I could wear, something that would cause 1st degree burns and poking oneself with sharp needles. And it should take about an hour according to the package.
Well I'm here to tell you 312 hours later, 3 waistbands, plus some minor burns, and a scant few wounds from
incompetence errant straight pins, I made something.
And it fits! Please no histrionics, sewing is in no danger of stealing me from knitting. I've knit 9 socks since I sewed the first stitch in little skirt. Released two knitting patterns, visited two yarn stores and watched One Daniel Day Lewis latest epic movie (and I have no problems dropping my avorite f bomb while hiding my head behind a dinner napkin) . But I am a little bedeviled by Weekend Sewing. It's a sickness.
In the background my cotton grows and grows. I had to raise the Aerogarden hood because the Nankeen variety is nearly touching the lights.
When Nankeen sprouted it looked remarkably like a mohawk, or a middle finger. Of course I could be managing the stress of being without my favorite word by finding its cousin in unlikely places.
The Red foliated cotton on the other hand chooses to show its rebellion in other ways. With a third leaf that looks nothing like its brothers. This little deviant has been listening to too much Morrissey or Siouxsie and the Banshees.
What can I say? It's great sewing music, Mother Muckers.
