Woke Up This Morning, Got Yourself A Gun

I’m feeling better! Aside from an annoying cough, I’m back to normal. But here it is Monday, and I need to do what I didn’t do on Friday…I need to change topics quickly.

The title to this post is The Sopranos theme song. Don’t worry, I won’t give anything away if you haven’t seen it yet.

Perfect ending. Chris and I wanted different things to happen, and we’re both very satisfied.

Goodbye, Sopranos!

Instead, we got a hat with pigtails.

I said, “Janet, you have good ideas”.

In fact, if the ceiling fan is on while I’m knitting, it actually blows in the breeze.

  1. We gave up our HBO so I couldn’t watch the Sopranos finale, but I’m glad that you enjoyed the ending. I love the pigtail hat, it goes very well with the sweater! The Orchid Lace Scarf is GORGEOUS in the Malabrigo. I’m jealous. I love it when Max covers his face with his paws and peeks at me with exasperated eyes! Too cute!

  2. Omigosh – the EastEnders set is wonderful! Ingenious little placket (for baby’s head to get through?)

    And the Orchid Lace Scarf is breathtaking. I love the way the lace is set off with the generous bits of stockinette — perfect for showing off the subtle variegation in the Malabrigo. GORGEOUS!

  3. I LOVE Basenji sign language!!! It is so cute!! Do your guys walk up to each other and just place a paw on the other’s forehead? Bella does that to Keiki all the time…I wonder what it means??!!

  4. I don’t think you should give the hat away. Ike will be sad. He loves it you can tell. The scarf is soo beautiful!! I don’t have HBO cause it costs about 100.00 to have it. Glad you enjoyed it–Kiss the munkey with the ponytails!!

  5. You know, I wish I had blocked the EastEnders sweater before I photographed it (I don’t know why I didn’t). The neckline is puckering in the photo, and it won’t once it’s blocked. Oh, well…

  6. Found your site from Janet’s. Great baby sweater, although I think your dog would like to keep the hat. Your orchid scarf is coming along beautifully! I really like Anne’s patterns.

  7. That laceweight is *beautiful* and I love your description of it–really makes me want to get ahold of some! Never mind that I’m a beginner and have never tried making anything lacy before…:-D

  8. I thought that was the international sign for “i just had a really great treat and i want to get all the goodness off my face”

  9. Great color on the laceweight ( as if I know what it is, but is really lovely) !

    I was happy with the Soprano’s end, I was afraid and jittery for the last 10 minutes….

  10. two questions-
    1- where can i get the pattern for the eastenders hat that i can make for my dog?

    2- what kind of dogs are these? we just adopted a dog and can’t figure out what he is…after stumbling upon your website, the black and white dog looks a lot like our Milo.

    great site.
