But doesn’t everyone need one of those?

Merry Christmas and Happy Winterdance, everyone!

You knit a strip of braided cable to the length around your head, sew the ends, then pick up the stitches sideways and knit upwards from there. Pretty nifty idea. I was still at the long narrow strip and it looked like nothing that made sense.

The hubby mentioned last night that he thought a wrapped pattern printout and needles didn’t cut it, and so somehow I wasn’t working on the baby blanket today.

Nobody paid attention to what I was knitting. (Maybe studiously not paying attention to it.) Nobody was going to ask me–clearly, I had to take matters into my own hands:

“You know what I’m making?”

Just the one kid in the room and it’s not for him. He shakes his head no.

“An asparagus cozy.”

Blink.

“I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know!”

My favorite Lockhorn comic strip show the wife knitting and saying to the husband “if you must know, I’m knitting you a straitjacket.”

Merry Christmas to you and your asparagus cozy.

I wish I had thought of that a day or two ago.

You’re making asparagus nice and cozy? At least it’s not a strait jacket.

Happy Holidays!

I made one of those! (the hat, not the veggie knit)

You should entitle the hat “Asparagus Cozy” ’cause it’s brilliant!
Thanks for the links, you and Di. My want-to-do list grows

All I could think about when I heard “Asparagus Cozy” was Veggie Tales. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltG37Bbx1qk&feature=related

Sorry, but it made me laugh!

Veggie Tales ARE awesome, and jumped into my mind too… Hem…
