Twas a dark and stormy sight

We’ve got a ways to go before we hit forty days and forty nights, but the animals are starting to gather two by two. So here to distract while we await the flood of reports on the Massachusetts election results are:

1. Knitting needles a squirrel could approve of. Here, you, too, can go knit your own futon with those yarns you don’t know why on earth you ever bought.

2. The Ig Nobel Prizes:  recognition from the scientific community for experiments that should not be repeated.  Creating diamonds from Tequila? Wait.  Are Mormons allowed to wear those?

Snortgiggle. Would they pour off one’s ring?

We had tornado warnings around here…

You leave me speechless! Knitting needles for squirrels?

Other fun —

Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions.

Oh, that video tickled me. It charmed me to see those giant stitches, and it sure looked like she was having fun!

So would that be throwing or picking? Personally, I thought the strands going up to the balcony were lovely. It was a shame they couldn’t stay that way.

Tequila diamonds? RingPops for grown-ups? I’d rather have a crisp white wine, thanks…

Even rain is prettier in California.

Extreme knitting.. a full body experience. Loved the colors 🙂

all I can say about the knitting is WOW. What an ambitious mind!

Tequila diamonds would only add another reason I don’t like diamonds! 🙂 Hope you stay safe; I heard the storms might get really nasty.
