The year of the Rabbit is traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits, diplomacy, and keeping the peace. Therefore, 2011 is very likely to be a relatively calmer one than 2010 both on the world scene, as well as on a personal level.
The above year of the Rabbit information was really wonderful to read......the year is associated with artistic pursuits. That's US!! Here's to knitting while we are diplomatic and keepin' world peace..
2) I've always wubbed the wabbit.......
3) Did anyone else notice the crocheted blanket in the SNL opening skit with Wayne's World last Saturday night? I had to hulu it.
4) The denim silk yarns in the image above are waiting to be a summer FO. I have a longish open vest in mind.......have you knitted with this yarn?
5) Finally, there was a story in the news yesterday about sleepwalking.
SOMEONE in our home sleepwalks. As aggravating as it is to protect their identity, I will
complete the post in he/she lingo to save my mother of the year award hopes for 2011.
I worried about that child! So much so that I had to inform the parents of
those having sleepover birthday parties....to lock their front doors in case said child got to sleepwalking at their house. This completely freaked out even the calmest parents.
Much to the dismay of his/her friends, he/she never did sleep walk at a party.
It gave me more to worry about when he/she went to college. Yes, I admit I told the Housing
Director of his/her residence hall. He secretly assigned my son/daughter to a room right next to the RA's. I was afraid they would think he/she was high or something if he/she sleptwalked
one night in the dorm. This served him/her well because he/she and his/her roommate was placed next to very attractive floormates.....
Well the story yesterday said they think they found a sleepwalking gene on chromosome 20. It is believed to be inherited. My mother was a sleep walker.
so, DO YOU WALK in your sleep? Do you know someone who does? Said sleepwalker is a knitter....
oh what oh what if we could knit in our sleep! WE would all want that chromosome 20 variant!
