What Mr. D and I have in Common

In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, the wonderful Mr. Darcy says this about himself,

"My good opinion once lost, is lost forever."

Unfortunately, one of my failings also.

The good thing is, once you're my friend (which takes me a long time) I will make excuses for you and you would pretty much have to eat people you murdered to lose my good opinion. The sad flip side is that once you have, no amount of ass kissing will really make me like you again. It really is a failing indeed.

Fun fact about Bams.

I finished some fingerless gloves for my mom. The color isn't quite right. The interesting thing is that I took two photos. Both have totally different coloration, and neither is correct. Isn't that super fun? (no)



I guess the second one is closer on my monitor, but hey who knows what yours will tell you?

Also, I have mentioned this intarsia sweater that my mom picked out of a Rowan book for her Christmas gift. Last night i finished the right front while watching Dexter with my Darling Husband. That means I am really close PUHLUS, she only wants one poodle on each sleeve, so those are going to go like nobody's business. (please do not point out that it now will need blocking and seaming and the weaving in of countless ends because I am enjoying the delusion that I'm close to the finish line).


It's my first foray with intarsia except for the skull I knitted using a cheat technique to knit intarsia in the round. It was quite a bit different from this really.


yoked skully


  1. You are a much nicer daughter than I. If my mother had picked out a poodle sweater, I'd have laughed at her, taunted her, and then said, OH HELL NO, and now you get NO handknits at all.
    SO I should wait until after I achieve "Bams Friend Status" before I ask you to help me move bodies?

  2. Something else we have in common.

    I'm with our Carrie. You are a fabulous daughter. I refuse to knit for my mother at this point. If she wants to felt socks, she can knit them. feh



I can't figure out how to respond to comments because blogger is funkay. Thanks for leaving one anyway!
