  1. I sit here reading your post, a glass of zin in one hand and my pomatomus sock in the other, and I know that I should listen…I know that I should. put. the. sock. down. Ahh, but it is fun to drink and knit, no?
    Sorry about the KUI accident.

  2. If the guy who made your Martini gets credit, I certainly think the dog posing as a backdrop to that stupid yarn ball deserves mention!

  3. You get more points for each beer you drink at out S’nB. It’s an added “degree of difficulty” thing. That is why we bring multiple projects of decreasing complexity….

  4. Oopsie.
    Well, it’s a good excuse to go to the LYS and get new needles and, well, you know, the embargoed stuff. Heh, heh. Yes, I’m evil.

  5. I know the dangers, but I still can’t help mixing the drinking and the knitting. I’m sure it was the needle’s fault, anyway. πŸ™‚

  6. Oh, I love the pink socks from yesterday and the yarn from today. As for the broken needle, I say you forgot about knitting after the martini and doggie ate the needle. Hmmmm, good story, however the needle got broken!

  7. I’m reading this with a two martini vodka martini next me. Sorry about the sock. I’ve been there. A couple Stichn’Bitches have gone horribly wrong. Martinis and knitting just don’t mix.
