Letters to my FSS and also to my Loyal Readers and Blog Friends

Dear FSS Pal,

Almost a month ago, you wrote:
I have a question... Why is it Amanda MONKEY? Do you like monkeys?
And, for your scarf... how long is long? 7ft? 8? more? I'm short, so 7' is long on me...
Also, I picked a yarn for your scarf yesterday! I might pick another to go with it... or 17 more, I'm not sayin'. =)
One more question: What other crafts do you do, if any? Thanks!!!

The short answer to the first question is yes, I DO like monkeys! I also like the idea of monkeywrenching.

Long to me is anything 7' or longer. I love scarves. I have tiny, wee scarves that I clip on my neck with a brooch and very very long scarves that I snake around my neck a hundred times. Anything in between will be so gratefully received. ...and I am so excited you're excited!

As far as other crafts go, I sew and embroider.

Love, amandamonkey

Dear Regular Blog Friends and Loyal Readers,

I miss you! Sorry for the unplanned absence. There has been a lot going on - though I feel like I have to confirm that I am NOT pregnant. So many people in Blogland seem to be expecting that I don't want you getting any wild ideas!

There has been dissertating and interviewing and more dissertating and some funky scarf planning. The bird beads I got at the International Gem and Jewelry Show a few weeks ago are a hint.

Unfortunately, the Tiki needles I bought from the Kiku booth at the Renegade Craft Fair yesterday are too large to use for this project. :-(

I hope you are well. ...and I hope to be more blog-active in a month, maybe less.

Love, amandamonkey

I just got reedonkulously excited when I opened Bloglines and saw you lit up! Can't wait to see what you do with the bird beads...

Welcome back! (Even if it's a short visit.) I got all excited when you mentioned the Renegade Craft Fair, but then I realized you were likely talking about the Chicago version, not the Brooklyn one.

Dissertating and interviewing! Those both sound like very good things! Those beads are really cute.

Miss you buy happy everything sounds like it is going well!

Good to hear you are still kicking!

Hope disserting and job-hunting go well (sending good vibes).

See you when you get back.

SO good to hear from you! Heh, I wasn't even thinking you might be pregnant... That said, I had a recent addition to my family. :)

Hang in there!

I will say, I was one of the people who wondered if you, like much of the rest of knitblogworld (at least those under about 40), were pregnant. Although really -- what's that got to do with not posting? Dissertating and interviewing are much better reasons!

glad to hear from you ;)and it does seem that everyone is getting knocked up lately?

Blogger Carrie said...

It's good to see you back in blogworld!

Blogger Dani said...

I miss you sweetie! Sending you and the bird beads lots of hugs :)

I hope to see you back sooooon... I'm going to be incommunicado for a few days whilst I move my stuff around from province to province to province back to province (whew!).
