The Kiss

Many  years ago, while hiking, I came across this very unusual rock.
For some unknown reason I just had to have it...It is VERY heavy.
It got lugged back to the car and has been in my life ever since.
JUST this weekend, while cleaning my balcony garden..it hit me!!..The Kiss!!
The famous painting by Klimt...

Cat Bordhi Moebius Scarf

Your mobius is GREAT! Thanks for posting your pics. I am in the process of knitting my first Cat Bordhi mobius. I'm using yarn out of my stash (which I always think of as "free" if it didn't involve a trip to the LYS! I'm hoping to make it more of an over the shoulders than just around the neck. I've been googling and binging patterns and finished projects because I want to make a gift for a friend of mine and I'm looking for different knitting designs, etc. It's fascinating and very addictive, and I love yours. Have you made more? on Cat Bordhi Moebius Scarf

this was a comment on my Feb. 21st blog...but I have no way of responding to an "Unknown"...
got an email for me... can't leave a comment on your blog..you are hidden.  sorry.

It is finished!!

"Pullover?"

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting!

Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, 'PULL OVER!'

'NO!' the blonde yelled back, 'IT'S A SCARF!'

Moebius Scarf..my first attempt

My latest project...still 'on the needles'..A Moebius Scarf (Cat Bordhi cast-on)
worth googling this one. Took me awhile to catch on but I DID IT!!
Am using a 47inch length needle..notice 'the railway track' type of knitting!! knitting on the top and bottom of the scarf to make the moebius turn...Jackson made me the stitch marker (ladybug bead at the end) for Christmas. You can see the moebius turn above the marker!!

too good not to share

During a visit to my doctor, I asked him, "How do you determine whether or not an older person should be put in an old age home?"
"Well," he said, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the person to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," I said. "A normal person would use the bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

 "No" he said. "A normal person would pull the plug.
Do you want a bed near the window?" ARE YOU GOING TO PASS THIS ON … OR DO YOU WANT THE BED NEXT TO MINE? :

This is NOT a joke. If you were able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having a close relationship with Alzheimer. 

 

angel pictures posted for pogo player to see....

 

a friend took the cardboard centre out of her angel and put cold white lights in it and uses it for her Christmas tree topper...hung thin strands of gold ribbon from the top to the bottom of the tree...I am impressed!  The angel with the ladybug was a private order...
