It's Like The Mona Lisa!

The Sheep is somehow finding a way to live with umpty-gabillion images of herself in the house. My eyes just seem to follow me everywhere, though. I am creepy...a Creepy Sheepie!

Your suggestions with regard to what I might do with the plethora of school pictures currently in my possession had me giggling for the better part of an hour. The thought of Sheepie T-shirts and mass produced calendars hitting the market is just too mind-boggling to contemplate! But then I realized that the t-shirt idea was really only going to use up one of these foolish things. I'm pretty sure that they even return the original image once the printing is done.

I'm still working on this. Somehow, some way, I will rid myself of these cursed things. Except for the one that I save for the "Have You Seen This Sheep?" posters. I like to have a plan in the event of alien abductions and poor map reading skills. I hope to be found speedily. There's new TV shows on and my calendar is full right now.

Meanwhile, back in the more-real world...I have reached the heel flap stage on super soft widdle sockie #1. This is generally the first place where something goes tragically wrong in the sock knitting process. But I'm going to tempt fate and post a picture just like a good knitter who has every reason to believe that things will go well.





A Sheep in sheep p.j's. It's like one of those Escher prints...
I do love this sock. I'm trying to avoid heavy levels of attachment given the possibility of knitting tragedies and the like. But, it is so very soft and squishy...hard to not dream of it one day gracing my hoof.
Otherwise, things are status quo: the coughing continues, the engine light is still on in the truck but both of these issues are quite handily dealt with by ingesting large amounts of NyQuil. I just don't feel as strongly about anything after my medication nightcap. This would be a good time to tell me that I have a new gray hair or that I need to defuse a bomb. Not much phases me.
Not even the suggestion that my middle aged face should grace a t-shirt.

I would totally wear a Sheep t-shirt! I must have one. Have you thought about giving Nyquil to the truck? Nyquil solves so many problems. . . .

Dry gas, Nyquil - what's the difference really? A little flavoring? Bit of FD&C Red #4?

Love the sheepie jammies.

And the sock - never forget to compliment the sock. :o)

Yes, the sheep jammies are very cool. And we all need Sheep t-shirts. To get rid of the pictures, just offer a special deal. I can hear it now: "But, wait! There's more! With every t-shirt purchase you will receive a free picture of the Sheep. You heard me right, folks! That's a free picture of Sheepish Annie herself with the purchase of every t-shirts.

What is this mysterious Heel Flap you speak of and is it going to be harder than the casting on which took me about 12million hours? I think I'll just have to get me some nyquil of my own for that.....or a margarita.
