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.”


“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…
