Will the Blob take over Wendy’s life?

Will it engulf Lucy?

Will Wendy finish knitting the body of the Blob this weekend?

Or will the Blob take on . . .Β  a life of its own??!!

Guzzling Diet Coke . . .


Devouring defenseless sheep . . .


Tune in Sunday for answers to these burning questions . . . and more.

Lucy Sez:


“It is official: Momma has lost it.”


  1. I think you’re gonna have to rename this shawl and call it The Blob Shawl. Of course, folks might be adverse to buying shawl so named.

  2. Now I know and understand why I bring coconuts to class. It puts you in a whole new light Wendy πŸ™‚

  4. Lucy, I think you may be right. πŸ˜‰

  5. I agree – no matter what you name this shawl, it will always be The Blob to me. That’s just too good.

  6. LOL! You are so funny! I love the photos of the blob attacking the items on your desk. Thanks, I needed a laugh this afternoon. πŸ™‚

    β€œIt is official: Momma has lost it.”

    Ah, but you have to say did Momma ever have it. Just joking! My bad boys Billy and Neil send hugs and kisses to Lucy.

    Hum…………. does knitting circular shawls turn your brain to mush or what? It’s not the color is it? Hey Lucy- Gizmo sez, he’ll come save you if you want!

  9. Wow, glad to see I’m not the only one who gets a little slap-happy with my knitting sometimes! LMAO! Noooo! Not the SHEEEEP!

  10. Bethany says:

    I could never really see the point of knitting circular shawls. I mean, in order to wear them, you have to fold them in half, and that lessens the impact of the lace design. I’d rather knit a semi-circle. Seems to me it’d show off the pattern better, and get done in half the time.

  11. Hahaha. That is very funny. Love it! You’re a genius!

  12. Gah! You made me LOL at work! πŸ˜€

  19. Lucy’s supervisory duties over the weekend are likely to be VERY taxing! Can’t wait to tune in on Sunday!

  20. Duck and cover Lucy. Duck and cover.

  21. Quick, Wendy, knit a sock to restore your sanity–we all know that lace knitting has this affect on people!

    Thanks for the laugh, it’s a great way to start the weekend

  41. Funny!!! The blog likes diet coke too!

  42. No worries Lucy. Your mama is just very silly is all and gives us a good laugh. Thanks Wendy – – have a good weekend.

  43. It’s OK, Lucy. At least if your momma’s lost it, she has lost it in a fun way that doesn’t stop her from feeding or petting you!

    PS Don’t worry Lucy, Momma hasn’t lost it any more than the rest of us….

  45. ROFL!

  46. Oh no, who will save us from the blob? Where is Wondercat? Save us, Wondercat!

  47. Dear Lucy: Momma may have lost it, but at least she’s sharing the fun with the rest of us. (Beware the Blob, just in case!)

  48. But she’s lost it in a really cute way! Fun post.

  49. Wow…even blobs drink Diet Coke!

  50. Megan S. says:

    Ataaack of the killer green shawwwls….

  51. anne marie in philly says:

    you cracked yourself up putting this post together, didn’t you?

    I thought so.

    for the record, I don’t live too far away from where scenes for “the blob” were filmed way back in the 1950s…ooooh!

    have a great weekend! πŸ˜‰

  52. The diet coke consumption may have had something to do with the innocent lace shawl mutating into a man eating blob!
