but it doesn't have "I think" scrawled on it anywhere...

that's the most endearing thing about that first tree

My audience are all old farts, in virtue of liking my blog. Hence it's just gross to look at... err.. look at ....

Look, I'm a bit distracted right now, OK?

I'd knit it...

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Colonel, Colonel, I must know what you think has been going on here.

Col. "Bat" Guano: You wanna know what I think?

Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake: Yes.

Col. "Bat" Guano: I think you're some kind of deviated prevert. I think General Ripper found out about your prevertion, and you were organizing some kind of mutiny of preverts.

I wonder if that's a science tat on her arm. Paging Carl Zimmer!

From digging around her blog, the tattoo seems to be Charles D. -- but it is a temporary.

It does look good though (as does she).

Talk about a sucker punch! If you really wanted us to focus on the pattern, you could've just photoshop-cropped that section.

Preverts indeed.

Hey, watch who you are calling an old fart. Around here, the correct form of address is dude.

nice sentiment, pretty girl, but to quote my knitting wife, "Knitted SHORTS?!?!?!"

I suspect my knitting girlfriend will have the same reaction as Tory's wife (you're too late now, AT, but the correct counter-argument involves the keeping of anatomy warm).

Anyway, John, who are you calling old?

My knitting wife's reaction to those was, "Ok, let me work out how many balls of yarn that will take, and you pick the color."

I married well. :-)
