Skrilla Knits

Knitting has long been considered antiquated, something for grandmas and whipped little housewives. That just isn't true. Knitting is one of those minute to learn, lifetime to master deals, and I'm in it for the long haul.



So I left my camera charger/USB stuff at my mother's. And I kinda refuse to make pictureless posts. I'm actively trying to improve my picture snapping skills for the sake of the blog. Jenna and I are about to GEEK OUT and leave work early to see Order of the Phoenix, I might have to pick her photojournalist brain during the previews...

Anyhow, my point is that I will be on a brief blog hiatus while I wait for the charger to arrive in the mail. I still have a lot of pictures to show from D.C. (thanks for all the store recommendations!) and a fair bit of knitting as well. And of course...plenty of new yarn =)

I'll be busy for the rest of the week up at TKGA, please stop by if you're attending! If it turns out that lots of New England bloggers will be there, I'd love to have a meet-up somewhere.

Since I must be multimedia, I'll leave you with the videos I watch to keep myself from bursting into tears about the summer heat wave we're "enjoying." If Kathy is a lizard, I'm a polar bear!

Scene/song from Flight of The Conchords (Jemaine's scatting KILLS me):

Cutest commercial ever:

Check you later*,


*I was once ridiculed for using this salutation, is it deeply uncool? I'm pretty sure I cribbed it from someone who is not uncool, but in fact quite gnarly. Don't you love old websites?

Oh My God!! My sis went to see Order of the Phoenix last night at midnight! I'm jealous! It's on my list of things to do!! ASAP (like in the next couple days)

The FruitaBu commercial always gets stuck in my head, and I'll have to show Ed Flight of the Conchords...I think he'll like it :)

I heard these guys on NPR recently and they totally cracked me up..thanks for that wee clip! Those Kiwis have a wicked sense of humour (my sister is married to one and lives over there)....
On a different note I keep hearing about things going on over there (knitting-wise) on the East coast and feeling bummed that I don't live there right now! I'm indoors avoiding the heat of the central valley of California as I write. We had some whopping temps recently...117 at one point!...but no humidity!

Aw, we'll miss you! But look forward to you coming back bigger and better, with fancier photos. So, check you later? (I'm not fit to judge on that one, as I'm deeply uncool in so many ways.)

Yeah, I think it's uncool, but not uncool enough to have come back full-circle into Ironic Hipster Cool, unlike everthing else about Sean Penn in Fast Times (ganja, Vans, west coast surfer slang, having pizza delivered to you in class...).

OK I'm SO into this post! I saw the new HP last night & I really loved it and flight of the conchords is my new favorite! My face hurts from laughing so hard!

Hope your charger gets there soon!

I watched OtP on Thursday - I loved Luna.
Flight of the Conchords is hilarious - I totally love Jemaine. Thanks for the clip.
I've never seen that ad before but it's 'Organic', can't beat that.
Have a good time.
