Woolly Thoughts

Has anyone been to this website? I am totaly amazed and smitten.
How they describe themselves:
We are designers of mathematical knitwear. Or perhaps we are mathematical designers of knitwear. Whatever you want to call us, many of our designs are simple geometric shapes combined to make elaborate patterns. We are now best known for our collection of large-scale knit and crochet afghan and cushion designs.

I want to get the patters for Maze, and several of the other afghans. Some hurt my eyes, but they are all so very cool!!

Check them out if you haven't seen their stuff. They are UK based, so I think with current excahange you double the prices for everything (roughly $7 for each pattern).

Ribbed for her pleasure!

Does anyone else love knitting as much as I do? It looks like crap for the first 3 or 4 rows, and you think you messed up. Then, BAM, out of nowhere it all lines up and looks wonderful and you are happy!

There was this shirt I saw. It said:

Ribber for her pleasure

I wanted it, but figured noone would get it, and having to explain all the time what it was would get old fast.

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,
Please find enclosed my Yule Wish list. I have been a good girl this year. I haven't killed either of my brothers, despite the fact that they totaly deserved it and no jury in the world would convict. I didn't murder my father in his sleep and butcher his still warm carcass in the frount yard (I had PMS. He was being insensitive. I thought it was a creative threat.)

Not that I am materialistic or anything. I am just a littl...obsessed? No that's not the right word. What is more than obsessed?

I can't save a thumbnail to show each. But I encourage you to check them out. Very cute! There are several thousand different things at, and several are repeated. These are just my favs. :) this one I am getting. YAY!!
