My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.



That pretty much says it all, I think. So I’ll be brief.

Mel Update

I did achieve sleevage on Sunday: the first sleeve is done, the second one started. Whee.


Feline Sleeping Olympics


Lucy is clearly in training.

Phyllis is working on finding out if we can knit twelve hours a day in prison. If so, she, Kristine, and I are all going to commit white collar crimes, get sent to Camp Cupcake, and be each others’ bitches.


  1. Yikes! I am soooo glad you didn’t include me in that plan!

  2. in your plea agreement, make sure you specify “snuggling visits” with Lucy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Hmmm… you’ll probably have to crochet rather than knit… those needles can be dangerous! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. great sleevage and yikes, lol.

  5. Hey, did that “Melody” turn from yellow to gray, or is there something very strange with your light??

  6. Somehow I think they’re going to make you leave your Addi Turbos at home. Still, the idea has potential.

  7. ROTFL!! Will you guys wear ponchos when you get out? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Way to go Wendy…..I’m still laughing. You made my day.

  9. Are these the feline olympics you’re talking about?

  10. Aren’t Phyl & I already your bitches? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. I don’t know why “they” aren’t responding to my inquiry regarding crocheting and knitting in jail. Does anyone know why a dark sedan would be following me everywhere. Should I be concerned?

  12. Boris Badinov says:

    Nyet, Phyl, no reason to worry. Nobody followink you! Nobody at all…

  13. I wanna be a bitch!!!

  14. Oooh, maybe you and Kristine can design ponchos while you do your time in the Big House. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. Too funny…Camp Cupcake…lol

  16. These comments are as good as the post, I love Boris Badinov’s “accent”

  17. I wonder if Knit Happens will be able to deliver to prison. It may be better to get hooked up with House Arrest.

  18. Susan Maurer says:

    Now *there’s* an idea! And you can knit yourselves ankle bracelets like Martha has to wear… out of quiviut! Then you can go on her show when you’re out of house arrest. But before then, you’ll be “Wendy InDa House”!

  19. Sorry but my email is down and I couldn’t email directly to Boris.

    Boris, you need to wash your car. Sorry I didn’t bring you a bagel this morning. I thought I’d let you continue to think you’re being sneaky. However, next time you might want to reconsider the paper . . . you had it upside down.

  20. I want to join!!! I vote for embezelment in case we don’t get caught, we’d at least get to keep the money and buy more yarn.

  21. I had a similar plan — to rob a bank and enter the Federal Writer’s Colony… until a friend in the FBI mentioned that they catch most bank robbers and and the average haul is only a couple grand.

  22. I’d rather be someone’s bee-otch.
