More holiday…

[Awesomely awesome photo from Stuck in Customs‘ flickr photostream]

And since it will be over July 4th, it really is a holiday. I can be British and American English correct at the same time! But perhaps not grammatically correct.

There’ll be another set of photo journal days afterward, though! I promise! No posts in the interim, I’m afraid. My internet access will be very spotty, at best. To tide you over in the meanwhile, I recommend these blogs:

Fibre and Wonder

Gaijin Smash

French Word-A-Day

And this site for the shopping:


(And Jennie came over again on Monday, starting in on the hugest sock known to man. This coming Monday I am going to evaluate the project and determine what went wrong and what I can do to fix it. She’s knitting Jaywalker socks, in her own yarn that she dyed with Wendi and I last month. Has it really been a month? Anyway, the yarn smells like fruit.)

Happy 4th/Whatever You Celebrate If You’re Not An American Day! Remember – sparklers are the leading cause of fireworks-related fires, but just to be safe, you probably shouldn’t shoot bottle rockets from your closed fist.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    The yarn, it is sweet smelling and addictive! 🙂 Part of it is the kool-aid, but most of the smell is what I washed it with.

    Caution: Do not attempt to eat the yarn, no matter how tasty it smells.
