More Man Candy (Now, with Socks!)

I really need to put up something related to knitting so I don't lose my affiliation with the many groups who require me to do as such, however, I'm just not hyped to do it here. You see, I spend far too much time over at Ravelry, so I tend to lose the inspiration to post here--however, I do still knit stuff while watching the newscasts from Belize (a country I have never visited, nor do I know a soul who comes from there). Basically, I'm addicted because they have any number of incredibly hot politicians. I suspect more than a few of them to be corrupt as all hell, but since we'll never meet, I figure it's okay for me to ogle them for my own perimenopausal pleasure. This post offers is the following:


His name is Johnny Briceño. He's running for Party Leader of the People's United Party. It used to be cool, but lately, it's plagued by scandal and thievery from the very people they're supposed to be helping. Oh well. Shit happens. (For what it's worth, I don't think he's going to win--but he is fun to look at). I like hot papis with salt 'n pepper hair. Word.

Okay, here's the knitting...

Deceptively easy lace. Gotta love it.

Mother is waiting for me to put on my pants and take her to yet another ghastly pancake house for supper. Never mind that she's diabetic and has many heart problems. She wants to go out with a belly full of toxins (and who doesn't?), so I'll sign off for now.

Gotta go...

I really, really don't want to think about the implications of you blogging about hot politicians while pantless. Quick- put up a photo of some innocent rodent in clothing, please!

What pattern is that?

¡Sí, él es muy guapo y delicioso! (Translation: '¡ay papi!')

If the powers that be get wind of me blogging pantless about Belizean politicians, I can pretty much forget about crossing international borders any time soon...(damn!)

The pattern is from the December 2007 issue of 'Knit 'n Style.' It's called 'Purl Lace Socks.' The deets are available on my Ravelry project page; I renamed them 'Crutte de Printemps' for reasons I think you can guess (I got allergies...) They're made with Socks That Rock in the Footzey Foo colorway, which reminded me of spring and subsequently snot.

I think once again, I've typed too much. (My bad).
