Three Knitted Scarves, Two Rebellious Tonsills, and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Hey everyone!  Sorry I’ve been MIA again.  Everything was fine. I was starting to get the Etsy shop off the ground. I made some new scarves.  

                                                              Winter Afternoon Scarf

                                                     End of Autumn Scarf

                                                                  Odds N' Ends Scarf
And then… (insert ominous music here)

My tonsils decided to rebel.

Or maybe it was the virus/bacteria/whatever’s crawling around in there that took possession of my tonsils so they had no choice but to rebel.  (Cut me some slack, I’m not really up on tonsil-germ relations.)  I assure you all, yes, I am going to get it checked out, and then I’ll be back to normal.

 ( I mean, as normal as I get :p).
In the meantime, let’s play a little game!  I’m going to show you a picture and you have to guess what it is!  Ready?  Wait for it…

Wait for it…

Here it is!

Oh come now, this is SO much more than a 5-quart bucket of rainbow sherbet!  When you open it, it becomes... 

...the Lord’s precious gift for all who have rebellious tonsils!  This is a beautiful bucket of bliss!  (I dare you to read that last sentence three times fast.  Do it, do it, do it!)

So I’ve been floppting around watching movies, partaking of this beautiful frozen bliss, and working on a new line of cowls to add to the shop once I look decent enough to appear in a photograph again.  I decided to call them “comfort cowls” because there is something so comforting about knitting in a circle.

Especially when you have rebellious tonsils.

(Oh, and for the record, “floppting” is pretty much an official word.  My hubby and I use it in sentences all the time.)

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go partake of more frozen bliss.  Take care!

A Veggie Tale

Graham crackers and frosting is one of the most delicious things you can put into your face.  It can cure a variety of ills.
That doesn’t really have anything to do with the rest of this post.  I just had to say it, because I’m having a love affair with graham crackers and frosting.  That probably won’t bode well for my marriage :p.  That has nothing to do with this post either.
Okay, let’s get back on track.  Vegetables.  The idea of knitting stuffed vegetables came to me, and I knew I had to run with it.  I just had to knit a tomato.  And no, that is not some kind of euphemism or figure of speech.  I mean it quite literally.  I knitted a tomato.  (Oh, and allow me to put an end to the debate: tomatoes are vegetables because they don’t taste fruity.  They taste vegetable-y.)
 And while we’re on the subject of vegetables, I just have to say that you’re never too old to appreciate the awesomeness that is “Veggie Tales.”  Dancing vegetables are just amusing no matter how you slice it.  Plus, it’s hilarious how the vegetables carry things even though they don’t have hands.
  There's something else I have to say while we are on the subject of tomatoes.
  No, you are not seeing things.  This is, in fact, a picture of the ketchup from my fridge.  I had to put this up because I absolutely HAD to show you what I found upon further inspection.

Under the picture of the tomatoes, it says "serving suggestion."  This is what I absolutely HAVE to show you because it's hilariously confusing.  How are tomatores a serving suggestion for ketchup?  Are you supposed to squirt the ketchup on the tomatoes?  That's repetitive and redundant, in my professional opinion.

And I guess that concludes the latest update from Kati's Knitnax.  I'll be trying to write at least once a week from now on :).  Toodles!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Sorry I've been so MIA.  My wonderful hubby and I had to recover from attending four Christmases in a row.  Oi to the vey! 

So yeah, I just wanted to hop on quick and let you all know that:
1.) I did not just randomly disappear off the face of the earth
2.) It's been pretty cold here in MinneSNOWta
3.) My two new year's resolution are to get better about taking my calcium gummies and drink more water
4.)  More knitnax are on their way!

Take care, everyone!
