IMG_0086It’s that day once again! It is FRIDAY!!  Ms. Stinky McFartbutt wants to be the first to wish you a happy Friday (up close and personal).  This is for Sophanne/Becky. Esau Marie’s nickname amuses her, so this one’s for you!!  Doesn’t she (Esau) look just stunning on her matching night-night bed?  Yes.  I do talk like that to my animals.  Not in baby voice, but I use the same words I used when my nieces were about 1.  At least THEY have grown out of it.  Shortly after I took this darling picture we got into a bitchslap fight.  She won, but only because she has claws.

So, remember when I decided I was being too much of a perfectionist with the February Lady Sweater?  I ripped it.  And, this is why.


See those holes?  I am not entirely sure what I did, but it was a tad too much.  So, I ripped and restarted and I am much much happier.

IMG_0094It’s moving along nicely now.  I’ll just spend as much time as I can knitting this weekend, but I do have a few things going.  They have promised the rain will stop, but after 10+ inches for the month (already over 2″ over the old record)I’m not sure I believe anybody anymore.  Here’s my deck.

IMG_0102We regain the hour of sleep we lost last spring this Saturday night.  Remember to set your clocks BACK and put new batteries in your smoke detectors and most importantly, have a cocktail to help you get your tasks complete.  Also Happy Halloween to all and happy birthday to my little brother, Todd.  He would have turned 50 this year.

Have a wonderful wonderful wonderful weekend (can you tell I’m into repeating myself?).  Here’s my soundtrack to send you on your way.  “Start Me Up” by Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones;

Have a good one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Happy Friday to you too! We’re going to massacre pumpkins this evening and cross our fingers that the rains cease long enough to take the girls to a few houses. We’ll have to drive A3 to keep her warm. I’d say to give EM some chin scritches, but it sounds like she’s a little grouchy and I don’t want you to damage your knitting hands. How about extra loves on Grover instead! Cheers!

    It’s another TGIF! You did the right thing by restarting your sweater. Holes are not an acceptable mistake. 😉
    Love Mick and the boys. The video is a great way to start the weekend!

    thanks for the close up of EM – and thank her for letting you take it and come out (semi) unscathed 🙂

    i’ll be carving my pumpkins to get ready for the kiddies tomorrow. Hope it won’t be too rainy tomorrow.

    p.s. I talk to my Frankie like that too 😛

    Haaappy happy Friday -couldn’t have come quicker, thank goodness!

    Wow, that was up close! She looks adorable on her matching bed. Sometimes ripping out and restarting is just the best answer. I’m hoping after two weeks my students are up to the eyelet row tomorrow morning!

    I felt that the picture was for me even before I read it!!

    I saw the pic and thought Little miss FartyMcButtStink (I never remember the name which is why it makes me laugh every time.)

    What a great picture and oh how McFartystinkypants does remind me of my once beloved “Kitty” (it was easy to remember her name)

    *sniff sniff*

    You’re right. He would have been 50. I’ve been thinking about him a bunch this week. Happy Birthday uncle Todd

    Happy Friday to you too! Love the really, really closeup of HRH. My deck looks sort like that too, except it’s walnut & oak leaves instead of maple. Another 4″ here since yesterday. Have a good weekend.

    whooooaaaa, wha??? how did I miss Friday? It’s Saturday. egads.
    Yes, EM looks quite elegant with her night night bed.
    Happy Halloween to you and yours, and Happy Birthday to your beloved bro Todd who would’ve been 50. Many hugs to you. xox

    Pretty kitty! I can tell you what happened with those holes. It’s those damned M1 increases. I did a kfb increase instead and am much happier.
