Slimy Yet Satisfying!

Pussyfootin' Around

"Hey Uncle Scar, when I'm King, what'll that make you?"

"A monkey's uncle."
"You're so weird."
"You have no idea."

Whoever came up with the rule of the line of succession was obvious a first-born son.  As if being an accident of birth makes you a better king...bah!  There have been several in lower birth order who would have made excellent kings.  Had a truer test than that of order-of-birth been implemented, I would have proved to be the worthier of the two, and wouldn't have been forced to ally with those mangy mongrels in order to prove that point.  Life isn't fair...

...especially for Mean Girls.  This month's installment was all about Scar of Disney's Lion King.

Kingly Loot

Pussyfootin' is 4oz/100g of Dizzy Blonde Studios Superwash DK and is approximately 280 yards of tonal deep chocolate browns, rich toasted tan and glorious tones of mahogany.  

The installment also included an insert card with pattern recommendations, a smoky topaz crystal stitch marker from Toluca Knitting Jewelry and a rice-crispy treat nom sandwiching gummy worms and drizzled with milk chocolate. Yum!

Namaskar:  Pronounced “Nah-mah-skar” is a deep spiritual salutation usually accompanied by holding the palms together and thumbs touching the third eye area.
 With the depths and charms of my mind and all the love and cordiality of my heart, the divinity within me greets the divinity within you.
If anyone needs a little charm and cordiality in his life, it'd be Scar.  Namaskar is a yoga sock knitting pattern designed by none other than one of our very own, Aimee Abernathy of Fun Fairie Knits.
