Ice Ice Baybee!


What better mean girl to showcase in hot sticky oppressive July than an Ice Queen? And OMG, is Jadis a mean one! Terrorizing children and little furry woodland creatures and crucifying tricking the beautiful kitty into sacrificing himself to save a snot-nosed brat. (Well, it was his own damned fault! Cats are supposed to be the minion, not the opposition!) Yup, she's our kind of girl alright!

I was inspired by this White Witch's realm, and wanted to reflect it in all its icy glory in the yarn.

Hoar Frost total

Our nom for this month is an amazing cotton candy-flavored rock candy suspended on a stick. I wish I could say that I made it, but I don't have that kind of time. Do you have any ideas just how long it takes to develop that amount of candy? Hell no, I am way too impatient to wait around watching crystals grow. Instead, I ordered them from Candy Crate . I'd definitely betray every single one of you for a Sweetie from there!

Also included were a customized tape measure which featured our very own little Meanie Monster Girl and a "Queen of Everything She Sees" stitch marker holder/row marker "made" by yours truly (actually more like assembled by yours truly).


Ice is Nice!

So, anyone dare to hazard a guess on who will be Ms. September?

It was an awesome club shipment!! The yarn was so perfect for a hot sunny summer! I don't dare guess who the next one will be.

OMG, that yarn is absolutely gorgeous.

I'm about halfway through a Medusa Cascade shawl with my frosty yarn.

I would love for the next shipment to be black and purples, a la Catwoman!

Well now I'm miffed. Got the lovely yarn, the tape measure and the nom bt no stitch marker. Call 911 some one stole it!

Well, if you weren't being an anonymous hoar (or should that be hoor) I could maybe rectify that!

I'm trying to decide if the theme is hoars in literature or hoars in movies. Extra mean points to La for picking one who was in both.

I'm going to go with literature and say Mrs. Coulter from the Philip Pullman trilogy.

I want more nomms if I win.
