At least I am honest

glow in the dark

Ya know, I could have bought these on ebay and never shown you how stupid I am, but I am honest. I share my stupidity. So yeah, I bought knitting needles that glow in the dark. Only problem is doesn't seem to me that you can really knit on them. They really aren't rigid enough and they seem to bend too much for comfort for me. Just imagine the laughs you will have when I come back from "Stitches" with my finds. If previous years are any indication, get ready.

Now on to the "Removed name of Janis's version of the Olympics" or the "Existentialist Olympics" here is an update of my progress. No way am I going to be able to finish this. Not only that but I don't think I am suppose to be showing you the progress...heh, I am such a rebel.


Lastly (with good reason) here is a picture of the cat I never show pictures of.

I am sad that you removed the Special Olympics. What's to offend? Special Olympic athletes train as hard, achieve as much, as the other guys.

So, your idea was, that we cast something on on Day One, and either we finish it eventually, or we lay it aside for awhile and knit something else, or we lay it aside and never actually...

Lots of good knitters must operate like this. Including me. Including, perhaps, you. And, the law of averages being what it is, there must be a few great knitters who do the same.

What's to offend?

Cheers. Jean

Hi,I am a fellow knitter and work for Special Olympics. Now I unfortunately came on board a little late. I actually found out on someone else's blog.

While some were offended, which I was, I admit, and I had even prepared a statement to put on my blog. I am glad I researched this further and found your message. There are no hard feelings here.

The real issue would have been the logo. I would have had to ask you to take it down. And who know what ugliness could have happened.

As thanks to you kindness, I would be HONORED, if you would like me design you a logo if you want. Let me know.

Although I like this name better Existentialist Olympics; the definition?

Existentialism is a philosophical movement that views human existence as having a set of underlying themes and characteristics, such as anxiety, dread, freedom, awareness of death, and consciousness of existing.

So OK... I hope I do not lose to the I think its perfecto. And Charlie Brown is my hero. I guess he was also thought of as a Existentialist too.

I would like to join... how much catching up do I have to do?

You got glow-in-the-dark knitting needles! Kewl! Hey, if you can't actually knot on them, you can always make them part of your coat-of-arms.

Why am I seeing a squid sweater when I write that?

Wullll, I got glow-in-the-dark braces brackets last week. So, like, I'm totally down with the glow, dude.

Wasn't Stitches hazardous to the pocketbook? I almost bought those. Got Socks that rock instead.

Hey, I think glow in the dark needles are a very useful idea!

I love your kitty. Such a perfectly inscrutable face.
