    Is there anything you CAN’T do?

    It’s quite lovely! You are a master with the needles. I’d love a big doyle for my piano! In case you’re taking requests.

    As always, you’re very talented.

    Good Lord Above! Knitting, go-go dancing, porn film star, author, playwright, singer, songwriter, poet, aerobics instuctor, cheerleader and I have forgotten all what else; Faustsus, you are the living epitome of the gift that just goes on giving!

    How can wool serve effectively as a cock ring??? Hmm…

  12. Johnboy says:

    VERY impressive, and yet I inexplicably am left wondering which one of you bitches is my mother. What’s up with that?

  13. Gary says:

    Lovely and kudos on the Seattle workshop thingy.

    Hey, is that the Branching Out scarf from Knitty? Cause that was my first attempt at lace, too! This is gorgeous. I did mine in grey alpaca and it curls in on the sides, no matter how much I block it.

    “Joe: Answer the sports questions in Trivial Pursuit.”

    Ack! Me either. However, I suspect that you could memorize all the sports question answers (like Suzanne Sugarbaker in a classic DESIGNING WOMEN ep) and still win.

    Faustas, dearie, excellent job! What was the yarn? After I start my 12 Step group for sock knitters, I’m going to try lace. (But I’m not going into recovery for a while yet!)

    Lauren — If you can’t use a cock ring, I’ll trade you the tampon cozy one of my old SnB members gave out as a party favors. (I’m the only guy — I held it up and said, “Oh, dear. I’m never going to fit in this.” She didn’t get it.)

    And you know what they say — a guy can’t ever have too many cock rings!

    Who’s Doyle?

    I admire a man who can knit lace. I still haven’t tackled lace knitting myself. I don’t really ever knit anything but stockinette in the round. I don’t really enjoy purling.

  20. Jennifer says:

    Very nice. What yarn did you use?

  21. David says:

    Your first attempt. Franklin is going to HATE you.

  22. Jeffrey says:

    Oh dear, you are like Gay Gayerson gay now. I love, love, love it.

  23. athens says:

    Wow that looks like it took forever. You had to be really bored to be inspired to try and make lace. Very pretty though. I imagine that if I tried that it would look like someone threw up some yarn.

  24. rob7534 says:

    Lynn in Tucson,

    I can’t spell for shit. I meant a doyley.

  25. Michael says:

    Very nice — how long did it take to make?

  26. Bill says:

    Very nice. Now you need to learn tatting.

  27. Tallguy says:

    That is excellent! I haven’t done the Branching Out yet, but it’s on my list.. yes, I have a list.

    When do you get time to knit??
