Already posted on Facebook, Ravelry and Etsy. But why neglect this sad corner of the Internets?!
THE BLOOD ORANGE COWL
I tried to resist the cowl brigade; the open joke seems to be if you want to sell on Etsy, you will make a cowl, an owl or a mustache-thingey. The hipsters like them.
I am not a cowl fan. But I have some chunky weight yarn, I need to make things with it, so here you go. This is an original design, if you want to call it that. I was just goofing around. I made it during two viewings of The Blues Brothers on New Year’s Day. I don’t particularly love that movie, but I do love the musical numbers.
I opted to NOT make pom poms, because I hate pom poms, tassels are the forgotten member of the pom pom family, and I can’t be like everyone else.
So there you go.
In other news, I have my “third-tier” extension of unemployment starting next week. It should last till April. After that, who knows? If I don’t get a job, I am well and truly fucked.
I grabbed an application from Bed Bath and Beyond but haven’t turned it in yet. I don’t want to.
Why? Well, no one flushes the toilets in their bathrooms (it’s true!) which is so gross, and yesterday, when we went to get Jon a coffee mug, it was packed and was like Night of the Living Bubbes.
I am sorry, but to the “friend” who keeps telling me to get a job there, I have one thing to say: If you like it so much, why don’t YOU?
