Gay Adventures in Domesticity

Martha Ain’t Got Nuttin’ on Domestigay!


I did it again.  I saw a (knitted) project to completion.  This time it was a much smaller pattern.  A good pattern for people who have a hard time when they don’t see results.  That means this pattern is quick.  A good pattern for people who have a hard time focusing.  That means this pattern is not one stitch from bottom to top.  A good pattern, all around.

This is the Berutti hat by Wendy Neal.  This hat has a zig-zag pattern up one side of it.

In addition to the zig-zagging pattern.  You may admire my very large nose.  It looks much better when you look at me from an angle.  See?

So I have completed two projects.  I may make a martini tonight to celebrate.  Or, I should read since I spent a lot of today finishing this project and not reading.  Did I mention school started again?  Domestigay is domestibusy these days.

A friend sent me a card.  The card is in the picture below.  It features a Victorian boy who, through magic photoshop, has a knitted shawl around him.

The card is hysterical.  It says, “Martha went into prison and taught those bitches to knit…what the hell did you do today?” I think it is apt.  I respond to Martha saying, “Watch out! There’s a new craftin’ bitch that hasn’t done hard time!”  While I admire Martha, she ain’t got nuttin’ on me.  She served time in the sticks of West Virginia.  Well, I am from those sticks.  In fact, when I was little, I gathered those sticks up and made one bad-ass house that rivals her studio kitchen.  Take that Ms. Martha.

I’m already overwhelmed by the email from Crafters Choice, University of Wisconsin, Eddie Bauer, and some quilting store in Indiana where I once entered a raffle. I just started blogging too, in August. Won’t this be fun? Now let’s see if WordPress figured out the right blog address to link with my name. It should be
