I am scarred for knitting life.
I have been watching "The Grinch that Stole Christmas" with my dd's this evening, and everything has gone fine. All of a sudden he comes down to steal the stocking first, and he releases MOTHS on them. :crying: I was so horrified, that I had to leave the room, even though my kids though the "flies" were funny.

Someone hold me.

No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.

I LOVE QVC!!! I've been addicted since I was 11. I made my first purchase on my 18th b-day.

my first guess on Hilde's QVC reference would be the sweaters. I've seen some types of sweaters on ShopAtHome TV.
I looooooooovvvvvvveeeeeee knitting soooo much, but I can't find any love for an overdone Holiday sweater. Overdone mind you... with sequins, fake jewels, LED lights and such embedded in them. Nice ski type sweaters or some sort of unified theme, find, but some of the stuff I've seen on there should be on youknitwhat.blogspot

Too funny! Interesting how knitting effects our "life". DH and I were picking up some x-mas presents this weekend and I saw a really cute sweater in a lace pattern. Couldn't buy it though because I just kept thinking "I can make that...and I have tons of yarn just waiting to be a sweater". No more instant gratification on that front.
