Crafts: Hazardous to your health!

So last week, in a fit of industry, I knitted two scarves and put racing stripes in my new jeans. Yesterday morning I woke up and could not move my neck without excruciating pain. Diagnosis? Knittery-induced neck pain! O the humanity!

I love the blue scarf, but as it turns out, it's itchy.

The pavement-colored one is mohair. It turned out pleasantly nubbly, no?

Racing stripe: it's a good thing (TM). I almost went with a light sage-green bandanna instead, which I think would have looked cool, but at the last minute I saw this and thought, Pink! I have to have it! Who knew?

I love them. I love them more than words can say. It's worth the pain! I even have a matching neckerchief. How cool am I?

Codeine: The solution to all life's little problems. Well, that and a stylized wooden chicken. Although last night, when the codeine wore off at 2 a.m., I decided not to get up for more - and every hour on the hour, woke myself up when turning over. Stabbing pain down spine! Cannot use right arm! Pain pain pain!

Bonus dog shot; if you've stuck with it this long, you should get something for your trouble. Howsabout a little schnauzer porn? Oh yeah, baby. ARF.

Wow! Go you crafty girl! I can't belive you just learned to knit and you;ve already done two scarves. I just can't seem to get the hang of it and I'm getting really frusterdated.

I sewed some pretty faerie patches all over a pair of jeans and I loved them. Everywhere I went little girls asked me where I got them. It took me straight back to high school when I decorated my denim jacket with scraps of leopard fabric that I had left over after I pegged my leopard print pants. (I had thinner legs back then. Now I prefer the boot cut.) :)

And look at that little smoopy-puppy! I just want to scruff up his widdle face and kiss his nose! Is he (she?) as sweet as he look?

SOmeting's up with my blogs this weekend. I've posted to both of them and none of my posts are showing up. *sigh*

Happy Sunday to you! Give those fingers a rest, ya hear?
