Googling For Underwear Pictures

Having been exposed to the seedy underworld of sexual perversion all my life didn't prepare me for the fact that my web site would get dozens of hits each day from folks doing a Google Image search on underwear.

Knitted Underwear
Yes, it's true. The daring poses I posted in February of 2004 still account for about 50 or 60 hits each day from folks who search the internet for underwear pictures.

See for yourself. Go to Google and type in "underwear joe" (without the quotation marks) and click on the "Imgages" link above the search bar.

Sure enough, that fine buttocks is being shown off for all the world to see.

Who would have believed knitted underwear would be the preferred Google images of perverts everywhere?

Perhaps some of them will enjoy this image too.



Knitting Progress
I've added about twenty rows of knitting to the sleeve of the wool/hemp sweater.

I'm using the "magic loop" method of circular knitting, and it feels painfully slow.

I can't wait to get back home so I can replace the circular with some 7" Surina wood double pointed needles. It will go much more quickly with those.

Spinning
This past weekend, I did a modicum of work on the Blue Spruce merino.



As Rhinebeck approaches, I will bemoan the fact that I have more roving in my closet than I will be able to spin in the next two years, but that won't stop me from buying more.

I know I will see some spectacular Jacob Select or Corriedale Cross roving that I will just have to have.

Readers' Comments/Questions
Concerning Rhinebeck scheduling, JoVE asks, "And how about those of us who would like to meet YOU? Can we form a separate line?"

Yes, both of you can form a line to the left of Franklin's mob. Actually, I'm hoping that a lot of folks do take the opportunity to come up and say hi.

Concerning Weavettes, Wendy, the Fearless Pedestrian asks,

"1. how many potholders would it take to make an afghan? (probable answer: too many)"

I wouldn't know. I use my two little Weavettes to practice color design for when I own my
own real loom.

and then;

"2. how come the chick on the main page is shown sitting at a full-sized loom instead of her beloved weavette?"

This is to show that even real weavers use Weavettes.

Selma of Woodstock, asks "Tell me, Clarice, have the lambs stopped screaming?"

All I can say is, "It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again. It does this whenever it's told."
