Knit Night Snippets

The late night knitters didn't let me down! They even discussed past statements that have been made so I'm including them here although there were plenty of new gems last night. These are statements usually heard when everyone is talking at once and then it gets quite and there's that one lone voice still speaking. So for those of you who picture Knit Night at The Sow's Ear as a bunch of little old ladies sitting around primly, knitting up lime green toilet paper covers; here are a few of the snippets of conversation overheard last night! No explanation. Draw your own conclusions.

*"I was 18 before I saw my first cow in the wild..."
*"I can't get my Google up!!!"
*"I eat baby bananas from Kwik Trip from the wrong end. Like a monkey. Then you have a handle..."
*"FACT. If you put your underwear on backwards, you walk funny..."
*"I'm contemplating my toes..."
*"I saw my first artichoke on the subway...."
*"It's on 5 acres so we call out behind the house 'the back four'..."
*"In our pool, we don't skinny dip, we chunky dunk..".
* "Dicken's Great Expectations is about this guy in Florida who lives near an ocean or a lake or a river or something....I saw the movie..."
* "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana..."

And my personal favorite of the night...

*"NO! I said there would be a shower IF there was mud wrestling!!"

And just so you know, there was productivity going on amongst the giggles. I knit this for William.

Hopefully this will appeal more to his macho fashion sensibilities than the girly pastel number I forced on him a couple of posts back! I had to cobble together a pattern and a graph because, oddly enough, I couldn't find a pattern out on The Internets even though I googled 'baby hat with skulls and crossbones' and everything. Go figure. A couple of ladies asked me to write it up and put it on Ravelry so I'll do that when I get a chance. Apparently there are other 'macho' babies out there that need hats!

I think I might try scooping up some knit night one liners, too. Nice skully hat--and quick!

So if you ever make it back this way, you'll have to come to knit night... it rotates around a few houses, just 2 or 3 of us sometimes, and up to 6 or so. Lately we've been talking about having a pajama party at Deb's (she's got the big room with the humongo tv) so we can watch Puppetry of the Pen1s. Then there's the comments about the "little man in the boat". But you must keep Colleen and I away from shop talk (she works for another bureau in the same Dept Conservation).

Best baby hat ever!

Apparently, I talk in my sleep. Will there be any snippeting of those profound mutterings?

What a great hat!

I'm sorry I missed the festivities. Oh well, there's always another knit night, right?

I can't believe you just made that hat up; wow! Not that skulls are my thing but it sure looks pro!
