My current work in progress:

Margaret Tudor, by Alice Starmore, knit from Frangipani Guernsey 5-ply in the Olive colorway, using 2.75mm needles.

Two Tickets to Paradise

These are my two tickets to paradise.

A total of $50 in iTunes gift cards. Woo! I got these gift cards with reward points from my credit card. Now comes the hard part: selecting songs to buy.

I open up the iTunes store fired up with good intentions but when the store is open in front of me, I can’t think of what I want to buy. Any of you have that problem? Want to help me out?

I want to buy classic rock from the 1960s through 1990s. Leave a comment to this post suggesting a classic rock song from that time period, and I’ll enter you in a drawing for a WendyKnits sock kit — pattern of your choice plus the yarn to knit it. One comment per person, please, but feel free to suggest multiple songs in your comment. I’ll draw a name on Thursday and announce the winner in Thursday’s blog post, so have your entries in by midnight this Wednesday (July 23).


And hopefully some of you will suggest songs I don’t already have. πŸ˜€

Here we have a Smoke and Mirrors sock.

Knit from Cherry Tree Hill Select Supersock in the Java colorway, on 2mm needles. There was a question in the comments — is this entrelac? Nope, it’s just yarn-overs and decreases. Actually pretty darn easy to knit! There is a second sock, but can I find it right now? No.

About Lucy and the Mouse

In the video I posted yesterday it looked as though Lucy was eating the tail of her catnip mouse. She didn’t actually eat it, and we were watching her the whole time. She is usually not interested in yarn at all, and never tries to eat it. I was a little surprised that she showed such interest in her catnip mouse’s tail, but itwas no doubt the catnip fumes that befuddled her.

She looks a bit more composed here!

    Hurray for classic rock.

  15. Linda Johnson says:

  16. Laura Sue says:

    Well, I finally saw Cream–how about “White Room” or, their best song ever, “Badge”. I can’t read all the posts, but I haven’t seen any Traffic! There IS not classic rock without Stevie Winwood!!! How about “Low Spark of High Heeled Boys”, or “Mr Fantasy.” Following that lineage backward, The Spencer Davis Group (“I’m a Man,” “Gimme Some Lovin”) or forward to Blind Faith–anything from that fantastic classic album. “Can’t Find My Way Home” is my personal fave, but “Presence of the Lord” is great, too.

  17. All things U-2… Love thosh Irish boys!

    Wow 415 comments.. I guess requests for song suggestions really gets everyone fired up!!!

  18. Heart – These Dreams, What About Love
    Oingo Boingo – Dead Man’s Party

    Captain Morgan by Billy Joel – also not one that I usually hear people suggesting but it’s another of my favorites πŸ™‚ Of course, my partner would suggest that if it’s Billy Joel you’re after, you should get Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, and that’s also an excellent choice!

    And for my last suggestions, I’ll just put the group first and then list the songs. I realize that I’m offering up way more than the asked for one, but, um, I’m an over achiever.

  36. I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU (written by Harry Warren & Al Dubin) is an old one I’ve always loved. Many artists have covered it. THEME FROM A SUMMER PLACE is a nostalgic instrumental if you like that sort of thing.

    And anything by the Beatles. Hard to go wrong there.

    Have fun!

    KathyMaries last blog post..We Said Yes.

  38. With all these great rock suggestions, I’ll forego adding my own and take the role of the rebel, instead:

    In addition to your music purchase, make sure to sign up for the season pass (just $4) for Joss Whedon’s awesome new disestablishmentarian hit: Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog. Wickedly funny and very, very well-done! Whedon’s musical sensibilities are impressive, too. Episode 1 is on iTunes now. More to come. I can’t wait!

  39. Allison says:

    Don’t Stop Believing – Journey
    Welcome to the Jungle – Guns n Roses

    Thanks for your solicitation of my not-oft-requested opinion! πŸ™‚

    PS. “The go-cart Mozart was checking out the weather chart to see if it was safe outside/and Little Early Birdie came by in his curly-wurly, and asked me if I needed a ride…” Bonus points if you recognize the lyrics.

    No Sugar Tonight by The Guess Who
    Secret Agent Man by Johnny Rivers

  49. Mirror In The Bathroom by The English Beat is a must-have song.

    Nina Simone – for when you’re in a soulful mood

  54. How about Benny and the Jets?

    Billy Idol – anything, but I don’t think stuff from Charmed Life has been mentioned eg. Endless Sleep or Love Unchained
    Blue Rodeo – Five Days in May, Are You Ready
    The Cars – Drive, Why Can’t I Have You
    Chilliwack – Fly At Night
    Collective Soul – Gel
    Def Leppard – anything, Slang, Work It Out — they also recently released Yeah was a great tribute album of their influences, well worth checking out.
    Heart – Dreamboat Annie album

Here’s a few I’ve always liked: Spirit in the Sky, One (Is the Lonliest Number), A Rainy Night in Georgia, Have you ever seen the rain?, Spooky (Little Girl Like You), Johnny B. Goode, Bad Moon Rising, Thunder Road, Jersey Girl, Summer of ’69, American Pie, Hurts so Good, Truckin’, Evil Ways, On Broadway, Bridge of Sighs, I Can See Clearly Now, When a Man Loves a Woman, and almost anything by the Doors, Beatles, Janis, Jimi, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Pink Floyd, Beach Boys, Stones, Monkees, and…oh my gosh! I just don} know where to stop! Hope these suggestions help. Karen
