Cool stuff, and Black Holes

Check it out - more craftiness from Kaity. Grandma sent her home with a sewing machine the other day, and she's been sewing up all sorts of stuff. Today, she made me this cool DPN holder!

But, hmmmm, what's wrong with this picture. There seems to be only one set of DPN's in here.


Well, to be completely honest, there are three sets in the three pairs of socks that sit on my desk in the current sock graveyard....

However, there are a few sets that are just MIA. Gone to that great void that is The Black Hole of Kaitydom, where knitting supplies and notions go and are never seen again.... things like - well, heaven-only-knows how many circular needles, my little birdie scissors, enough stitch markers to circle the globe and, oh yes..... those darned tapestry needles!

I tell ya - it's finally come to this.

Could be worse - the hubby's wrote on the back of his calculator, in bright red Sharpie - "Dad's - touch this and die like a dog in the dirt!"

Whoa- ho! Stand back! - yeah right - the guy talks a big story, but he wouldn't hurt a fly.

Me - on the other hand..... it's good thing Kaity's such a good girl, and spins me yarn and makes me stuff....

Nice DPN holder! Do the scary warnings work?

Nah, he wouldn't hurt a fly... but maybe a Chuck or a Quail... or scare the crap (Puke?) out of one of the Cats.

You need an Extremely Secret Stash of Knitting Accessories. :)

Cute DPN holder! Nice sewing skills she's got there.

You'll need to let us know if the warnings ward her off.

This is so funny! If I lose anything I don't have anyone else to blame :)

I love your family!!!! Everyone is so funny. Touch and die like a dog in dirt - ha ha ha ha ha!! I often tell Pea "If you don't stop (whatever annoying thing he's doing at the moment) now, I'm gonna smack you 'till your little brain pops out your ears". I'm meaner than I look - LOL.

First, may I be the first to say that from looking at your pictures I have always believed that you don't look old enough to have a 20 year old. Your kids must lie about their age ;)

Very nice DPN holder, I've thought about making one my dpns are all in a travel wet wipe container (Huggies!)

I like the scary warnings. I do the same thing and always get laughed at!

Such a crafty one, that Kaity. The first time my mom visited my first apartment she was amazed to find all the kitchen stuff she thought she'd lost. Was I expected to buy that stuff?!?
