Knit One, Hurl Two

Happy Friday!  I don't know about you guys but I could use an end of the week drinky drink!  And some talking woodchucks.  Please enjoy your beverage of choice as I provide the latter:

I saw this commercial for the first time last night as I was knitting.  Knitting is a seasonal sport for me- I only knit in the Fall and Winter so I am pumped to be working on my first project of the season.  Or, I was pumped.  I purchased a kit with everything I need to make a darling little Hello Kitty scarf.  The box claims it is for 8 year olds and up.  The box can take a long walk off the end of a steep, deadly cliff. 

Admittedly, I'm a touch rusty, but the pattern is reeee-donk-u-lous (the more furious I am, the more stupid the words I use, FYI).  I worked on it for what seemed like 3 hours (was 20 minutes) and then chucked it across the room.  GoodBYE Kitty!  Now I'm working on some cute, simple, baby leg warmers and my blood pressure is much happier.  Will revisit scarf on a day I did not lock my keys in the car* and care for 2 sick, crabby kids while hacking up disgusting stuff myself.

Here's another commercial just for the Friday fun of it.  I love this guy's style (what a sMARTY pants!) He's brave, but I bet his flag isn't the only thing flying high!  Do you think she'll stick around or rum away?  I give him a capTEN for creativity.

*50 bucks they charge to get you back into your car!  Think of all the 8 year old appropriate projects I could purchase and slam into my living room wall for 50 bucks!
