Is A Guy Who Knit's Really That Strange? (strong language ahead hehe)

Don't know if I've mention it or not, but throughout this week I've been spending a lot of time on blogexplosion and blogmad... which if you don't already know are two great blog exchange services where you can get your blog noticed by people who might not ever find it... oh by the way to all you folks who have commented on this blog from either of those blog exchanges I say thanks for your support.

I know it may seem strange to many people of different walks of life out there to see a guy who is as much into crafting as I am and I didn't really realize just how "wierd" it may seem to some folks until I joined a chat room on blogmad a couple of days ago. My screen name on that site is "coolguysknit" and when I entered the chat room using that screen name I was greeted mostly as normally as anyone else would have been... but there was this one person... I'm not sure if it was a guy or girl... was asking me about the website I said I was putting together for our storefront. When I told him/her tha my room mate and I knit and do other crafts I wasn't even able to get to the part about telling about how we're opening our own business online selling the things we make before this person spouted out "Your gonna make a website about THAT!" It was like this person never heard of guys doing this sort of thing. Or maybe this person thought this was a gay thing or whatever. WHATEVER BIOTCH!

Anyway I'm not gonna rant and rave about it because that would just fucking be boring as hell right! Right!! What I do wanna say is that it's not a gay thing, not a straight thing. It's just two guys who happen to be room mates and enjoys crafting... maybe me being the biggest craftaholic... but whatever. We don't knit sweaters... that's too grandma'ish... we don't knit socks... let your mother do that for you! We do make some freaking awesome fashion accessories for all you girls out there who always say "Damn! I think a guy who knits is hot!" Well quit freaking saying it and buy something dammit lol. We're working for you. And for all you guys out there we make some fucking cool ass caps... and wait until you see the jewelry we got coming along...

Hey didn't I say I wasn't gonna rant and rave... oooops, my bad!

You know something you guys, I tried to get my roomie to join as an author on our blog but apparently he has declined the invitation... I don't know why... I mean he is supposed to be in this thing with me. Some partner huh lol.

How Are The High Gas Prices Affecting You?

We don't know about you guys out there, but the gas prices are killing us!! We are fast becoming forced to stay at home. This was supposed to be a summer of fun... getting out to go places... site seeing and stuff, but that all may not happen if gas prices continue to rise.

It sucks!! But I guess we've got plenty of things to do here to keep us busy in the meantime.

Trey has been busy rebuilding his computer since he's not working anymore and he might start back into crafting some new stuff soon. I've been working on many things like trying to come up with new original jewelry designs and knit things to put on our website... which I'm still working on... yes STILL.

I've been looking at this blog lately and it's starting to look like it's time to reconstruct it's template. It's getting cluttered with all the new stuff we've added to the side bar. I'm thinking I may put this blog back into a new three column template.

Maybe by the time we get all this done, gas may go down a bit so we can get and do some site seeing.

My First Summer Project

It's finally my favorite time of the year when the weather is nice and warm. That means it's time to put the hats away and start working on much smaller and lighter projects. I've spent the past couple of days working on these. These are sort of a secret design I'm building so I'm not gonna say what they are. I just wanted to show off the colors because I think they are so cool... and wait until you see what I'm going to do with them....

New Place To Hang Out

I recently discovered a nice little spot to hang out, do some work on my laptop, watch traffic, watch the sunset, do some crafting if I want to. It's in the corner of the uppermost level of the new four level car park that was recently built at our local hospital. And what is really cool is that I can connect to a free public internet connection to surf the web, check email, make posts to this blog... You can see me there in the picture writing this post. How cool is that!?

Prayer Shawl Finally Finished

Front and back pictures. Hopefully you can see the colors better in these pictures. Now that this is finished I still have one more to do but I think I'll give myself a few days break before starting it.

Maybe I'll try to finish a hat that has been on the needles for a month and a half waiting to get finished and then I'll start the next shawl. Who knows? I'm kinda anxious to see how the other shawl is going to look so I may dive into it after the weekend is over. I really had fun making this one and thats saying a lot because I don't normally like projects this big. Let me know what you think of it. Notice how much fringe there is.... I tend to over-do it a bit with my fringe sometimes but I think this came out looking nice.

Any More Free Pattern Of The Day Sites Out There?

This isn't a post, but rather a request. I'd like to know if there are any other websites aside from that features a pattern of the day. They can be for knitting or crocheting.

I love to check anniesattic everyday and usually it's the first thing I do before I even check my email and I was just wondering if there might be more?
