Akeno - Ellison's Noro Men on the needles

Just put Akeno on the needles from Jane Ellison's Noro Men as the Midwest continues to bake in temps hovering around 100 degrees - seems crazy to be starting a cool weather jacket for myself as I sit by the pool. Water temp is in the mid nineties and I am day dreaming of the first snow.

I can empathize! In NOLA it's hotter than two flea's shagging in a dog's arse. I'm knitting a cardigan for my sister right now in a worsted wool/alpaca/silk blend! Even under the ceiling fan with central A/C I'm still sweating my...well, you get the point. I wish I had a pool, so I do envy you that one. I'm not familiar with that pattern, but I'm intrigued. I'll have to look it up on Rav. Good Luck and keep cool! (",)

Mill. that is a visual that is amazing..."2 fleas shagging..." I hope to remember that one to tell others. We are at 100 degrees today and it is a bit humid on top of it. Oh well, at least the A/C is working in the library branch I'm at. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

It's an old Southern goodie. Of course, I cleaned it up a bit as you can imagine.

Naturally....we are a somewhat family-friendly site, after all. Either way, love it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

When I was in Ireland years back working in a restaurant, my co-workers wanted to know everything I could possibly tell them about "America". So I told them that during baseball practice we shagged flies. They were grossed out...

Given the differences in American and Irish/British/Aussie slang...I can truly see why. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Calls to mind the story of the flea and the elephant. I will NOT retell that here.
