The Story of Om Nom Nom (Pt1)

November 28, 2009

I hope everyone had a decent enough black Friday and that none of you were involved in any of those unpleasant merchandise related altercations. Yours truly has never felt compelled to plunge into the consumer craziness so this year, much like past years, I did not participate.

On to the reason this post is titled how it is:

I come from what seems to be a decent length line of crocheters. And try as they might my grandmothers were not able to advance me further than a wicked chain.

Do you remember those cartoons you watched as a little seeing the way people looked like they were knitting? I do – and I tried to do it just that way.

Enter my mother who took pity on her (very) little girl and taught her how to knit correctly. I learned a backward loop cast on and off I went. I liked the way teeny needles looked so I chose needles size 1 – 4. And having no sense of gauge I knitted very tightly. So tightly in fact that it made it difficult just to knit a stitch. It was partially because of this that is the explanation for why it was years until anything worthy of the phrase “finished project” made it’s way on the scene.

Stay tuned to learn what comes next in the saga . . . .

In other news – have you heard that the fabtastical show Monk is ending? Season 8 will be the final season and the loose ends of the show are supposed to be tied up. The Trudy mystery will finally be cleared up for us. As exciting of a prospect as that is I am very sad to see one of my absolute favourite shows be canceled. From what I have read here it seems production costs have exceeded the shows worth.

Monk, you will be missed.

Launch Date Nearly Set

November 10, 2009

I said I did not want to open with less than twenty items and this looks like it will indeed be more than a little possible. I have a girl who has agreed to do the modeling for the shots and who also seems to intend to help put together the photos in an eye catching way for the store. My second “helper” is still away but will soon once again be available.

Once I hear back from my model – we will see if the launch date of November 25th is a lock.
