I am having difficulty concentrating at the moment. I keep thinking about these:

Sheep Face by brew ha ha.

Yep, sheep.

I love the wooly, lanolin-scented things. Why? Because sheep = yarn. And I love yarn. I love it best in cashmere, but a good blackfaced leicester will do. And this weekend, I’m going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, which might amount to nerdvana for me – sheep, yarn, going to see Wolverine, and also crabs (I hope to eat me some crabs), plus maybe Star Trek.

(Which is to say that I might be rather quiet until Tuesday, unless I happen upon a computer before then).

Oh! And some of these:

Angora Rabbit by marlana.

and these

Angora Goat by Beaker's Glassworks, Jewellery & Things.

and also these:

Alpaca at the National Zoo by Smithsonian's National Zoo.

I have never been so excited to see farm animals before (even if sheep/goats’ eyeballs creep me out in a cthulhu sort of way)!

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.
