Knitting Humor

Too cute not to share! lol

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway.
Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the blonde behind the wheel was knitting!
Realizing that she was oblivious to his flashing lights and siren, the trooper cranked down his window, turned on his bullhorn and yelled, "PULL OVER!"
"NO!" the blonde yelled back, "IT'S A SCARF!"

Yarn Fairy? Are you real??

I just KNEW there had to be a Yarn Fairy out there! Where else would all the beautiful yarn come from? =) So Yarn Fairy, if you are reading this......when are you going to come see me?? I've been a good little knitter and have been working on finishing up my WIPs and whittling down that stash. Don't you think it's time I get some of that luxurious and wonderful kind of yarn? Puh-lease??????

Seriously, this cute little yarn fairy clip art came from Tara over at Tara's Doodles ....go on over and visit, I'll wait. I got a few of the cute graphics on the sidebar from her site. She has another cute site that I visit all the time ~ Coffee Crochet ~ isn't that the coolest name? I'm going to make her Strawberry 'Jamma Bag real soon. I think it's adorable.

The family and I just got back from serving dinner at Guest Week. This is an annual event that our church does...we host a group of homeless people at our church for a week. They come from a shelter in Detroit. I serve several meals there throughout the week and a lot of us just go up there to visit, play games, watch movies, etc. The number of people we have varies from year to year, I think we have 52 people staying with us this year. It was a bit surreal.....we had dinner with the homeless going on in our Fellowship hall and a wedding going on in the sanctuary.
