Fab Five (er Four) Friday

Two posts in one week - sound the alarm!

Happy birthday to Mr. LeBon Bon.

Still makes my heart swoon after all these years. He was my first celebrity crush. My boy is a tad bit older than moi but our birthdays are a mere few days apart. I've got four more days until I hit the big 37. I'm careening toward 40. Yikes!

In other Duran Duran news, Andy Taylor announced that he was leaving the band yesterday :( Thus the reason why its now a Fab Four Friday. I can't believe that they were still together after so many years. I know they're not like the Stones or Beatles but they certainly ushered in a new genre of music in our pop culture. Ah, nothing like a trip down memory lane.
No don't say a prayer for meeee noowwwww. Save it til the morning after.....

Fall hit my hood this week. Check out this beauty in my backyard. Sandy would have enjoyed the fluffy white and blue sky. I know that I did.

Speaking of my hood, go give a shout out to one of my real world knitting/spinning friends, Robin. She's celebrating her first year in bloglandia. Happy first, Robin! She's having a contest that you can enter too. I know she has some treats to share if you win.

What I did this summer #27 - Mason Dixon Warsh rags

Yup, I was a joiner even if it was for a short while. Shhhh, don't tell anyone. I saw these cuties and was absolutely mesmerized. I made a couple of regular ones and then took some stupid pills and decided to make one on the diagonal. And then lost it somewhere in the pile of finished objects. If I find it, take a picture cause its a beauty. Took me four hours on one of many road trips to not only figure out how to work the increases and keep it in pattern. These were made with good ole cotton and with the exception of the one I lost, they've been a staple in my kitchen.

BTW, acrylic yarn doesn't felt. All I'm sayin'. Most of you are saying "Duh" right now. Duh, I knew that alrady too. Let's just say I must have had a couple of out of body experiences this week. Someday, I'll show you what happened. I'm gonna blame it on mega PMS.

ROFLOL! Nope, but dontcha know that acrylic not only doesn't felt, it's doesn't hold it shape in blocked lace either...just sayin'...tho' I'm told you can kill it, which I'll have to try sometime on my first lace shawl!
Glad to see another post from you and I LOVE your MDK warshcloths.

Wow, Duran Duran. That brings back memories. I was more into INXS myself.

Love the MD warshrag. I've got one on the needles myself right now.

Your tree and your yard are gorgeous!

It must be 80's alterna-day in blogland--I just read one about Depeche Mode somewhere else!

And the Warshrags. Gotta love the warshrags!

I thought they kicked Andy out of the band in the late 80s because they couldn't deal with his alcoholism? This may have been after the Power Station gig.

In the 90s, it was Simon and Nick, and then the other three rejoined at various times to reform the original quintet. Not surprised that they are breaking up yet again.

Good to see you blogging again!

Happy Birthday for today, 31st Oct. A "little red breasted birdie" told me it was your birthday so I thought I'd drop by and say Happy birthday to you!
