The answers to the burning TT questions

No, I did not knit the object of # 5. I am not sure what I would DO with it after it was knit, and knowing my children, they would sit there and ask me at every stitch "what are you making, Mommy?" However, I have knit a Boobie Ball. Yes. It is what you think it is. An online friend of mine is a LLL leader, and she wanted to test out her pattern before she started making them for a conference. So I made two of them. They are rather cute ... in a breast-y sort of way.

If you believe that coordination has ANYthing to do with knitting, you should give it a try again. I am the world's most UNcoordinated individual. I can walk into walls that have been there for 20 years and still swear it wasn't there the last time I walked through an area. I can trip on a non-existent crack in the sidewalk. I trip up stairs. Ok ... maybe my WALKING isn't coordinated. But you get the drift.

To all you crocheters .... hats off to you, dudes. Seriously. That is one thing I cannot wrap my brain around. And I used to think that if you can knit, you can't crochet, and vice versa. A lot of people I would talk to would verify that thought. However, I have met people who can do both, and do both very successfully.

And yes, I really did teach myself how to knit from a book. Ace had to teach me how to cast on with the slingshot method (I had a video for that and I wasn't "getting" it .. but he was). And I did have to go to a local yarn store (LYS, in knitspeak) for the owner to show me that I was wrapping my stitches around incorrectly. So I guess everything wasn't learned from the book. But a majority of it was.

Robin, if you would like a purse, you just tell me what colors and I will make you one.

And if you want to see more pictures of things I've made, and yarns I've dyed ... here you go:

I have to say, I posted that penis cozy link for my friends and they all wanted to know what words I typed in to search for that. LOLOL!

When my aunt was pregnant with my cousin, I started knitting a pair of pink booties. That cousin is now 25 years old and pregnant with her own first child, yet the booties remain half-finished.

Maybe I should go retrieve them from my mother's house and finish them, eh? LOL!
