Must See Videos

We interrupt this blog to bring you two videos by Basement Jaxx, a London band with some seriously genius visual taste (or access to them).

SeaSocks, summed up

I've just spent the evening going through the 1000 pictures I took over the past two weeks. Don't worry, I won't make you look at all of them. Here are a representative sample: More to come! That's me second from the left in the Zipline Gals shot.

Car content

Matt & I went to a show - will look up the name when I'm less fried - our favorite was the bronzy-red Cadillac (top three pics). The fins were moved inside... it was unique and truly beautiful.

Neither it nor Preston won any prizes. In fact none of our favorites received official recognition: The awards all went to local guys driving 70's muscle cars. It was a cute little show, though, and they're certainly entitled to their own taste.

More knitting content - Barack Ollama

This is a graduation prezzie (from internship to residency) for my amazing husband. I made Ima Llama for our 1st Anniversary and he loved her. This one is a half black, half white (get it?) homage to our (hopefully) next president. His necklace reads “B. Ollama.”

It’s unusual for me to make the same thing twice but with all the joking about Ollama around here it seemed inevitable.

Oh, and here's a sweater I made for the cruise, which leaves FRIDAY!!!!

Knitting content

There's no point in an amateur like me blogging about Maryland Sheep & Wool. I'll take the Inego approach and sum up rather than explain: Tons of friends. Truckloads of yarn and fiber that wanted to come home with me. Adorable kids and lambs and bunnies. Outrageous foods. Products ranging from sublime to obscene. Slow bus. Great day. :)
