Rock the Face!


It's pretty late (like 1:30 in the morning) but I've got to say that in spite of the crap-ass weather today, the day ended on a most excellent note.

I got to see a really rocking band, live and in person tonight with a really good friend of mine. The concert wasn't the high energy blast I was expecting but it still rocked my face off! It was nice that this Celtic-rock band (Great Big Sea) had a good pace of mixing the high energy songs with the softer/quieter ones.

It was greatly enjoyed by all (esp. myself).

Damn...Now That's Hawt!

Now that I have your attention! *lol*

So this past weekend was Halloween weekend. Yeah for parties (and pretty much any excuse for celebrating/partying).

I ended up going to 3 parties over the weekend. One at a club in DC on Friday and two on Saturday evening.

I had a fun time this weekend. I danced a little at the club (not so much b/c my feet were starting to hurt in my high heels by the time the dancing really started).

Saturday was nice as well. The first party, a friend invited me to it (it was a friend of hers from high school that was hosting the party). It was nice, but I didnt know anyone there than the friend (and her boyfriend) that had invited me. To a certain extent I felt my friend was feeling a bit obligated to entertain me and not really socialize with anyone else. (But who's to say she was feeling a bit nervous herself - not really knowing anyone else either).

The second party I ended up at was at a place I go once a month with a group that has ecclectic lectures on different things (from Native American ceremonies to Reiki to runes). It was a bit low key but I felt a bit more comfortable there (knowing more people).

I Want To Break Free.....

I would say this has been a reoccurring theme/message for me lately.

Just break free.

Break down the wall I have built around myself. Though some people might think I'm pretty free already - fair amount of time, just a misdirection on my part.

Hot or Not.

Ok. I am addicted to knitting like a fish is addicted to water.

Now, I'm always game to knit something new or unusual. But sometimes the things that intrigue me may not be the most sociable mainstream items.

First up is the digestive tract.

Now, I'm not a biologist or doctor or anything medical of the sorts, but I stumbled across this and fount it fascinating! A good enough excuse to use waste yarn.

I have knitted the next item up to bat. The womb. 'Nuf said. Now there is a picture of one that someone took to the next step. They added an eye patch and an eye to it.

Very clever, I think.

Now we need to represent both sexes here. So, now may I present to you: Sperm!

Some how I find these things fascinating! So off the wall and quite possibly shocking to some. I love it.

Ok, these next few photos are for that biologist in you (or possibly the curious).

The top row of photos is a dissected frog and the bottom row are photos of a dissected lab rat. Both are knitted. How cool!

Now on something less gross but just as cool

This is a "hat" (term used loosely) that's done up to look like you have your hair up in curlers. Tres funny. Desperate Housefrau is the name of the pattern/look.

Ok. Last whimsical/odd knitting item is a Hallowig. Basically a "wig" you knit yourself that has bangs incorporated.

So, if you havent been totally grossed out by some of the knitted items and you've made it this far, the following is probably one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

Some of the pictures I got off of estonia76's flicker (like the Lab Rat), and i was paroosing her photo stream (b/c she knits/crochet and I like to see what others have done) and came across the Sheep-Romper!
