A few little things

And it’s not crochet! Last night at SnB I whipped up a little Butterfly Ring – I had grand visions of all the cool butterflies I would make with my leftover sock yarns.
Butterfly Ring
I made one. It is a very quick project (like I said, I was at knitting – it took maybe 30 – 40 minutes?), but was a little fiddly – so many ends! I’ve given this to the Lorax and I don’t know that I will make more – maybe when she’s older.

I heard a quick piece on the radio today – I think it was a sound bite for an upcoming interview with Marc Cohen? – he mentioned the music you hear when you’re around age 11 really sticks with you and has a lot of meaning for you. For me, that would be 1989. So I googled a bit to jog my memory. From PopCultureMadness.com – The 100 Most Requested Songs – That’s about right. My musical loyalty still makes me play all of these. In the time just before Nirvana, when big hair bands were still big and 80s pop was still radical… (I have to go update my iTunes now)
