Rockies regional randomness

A thread for random stuff not worthy of its own thread....

Rockies style since we are such a tight knit group of friends here (anyone know if the other regional forums are like we are )

Hi Geek.

Marc
Cheryl has been knitting me a touque for like a year and a half. I think her knitting schedule was inspired by 309's maintenance schedule

Cheryl & I need to make a knitting date...I'm starting to get back to needles...finally! Gave Hell his first knitting lesson last week. Perhaps it's time you learned, Ed. Could be a knitting double date!

Not a chance in hell.

Though my grandma did teach me to crochet when I was a kid

Dude.... C'mon!



We could start an EXTREME knitting group. Full race leathers required.



Personally, I enjoy acquiring new skills.

Paula need more welding practice.

I've been feeling the itch to get my needles clicking again too. Duke just gives me dirty looks when I say he should learn, good on Hell for taking it up! If I didn't live to far away we could start a two wheeled knitting club! Not that that should stop you gals from starting one, though!

Hell got a knitting lesson!?! That I would've liked to have seen! I'll join in on a knitting date. Started my first project of the season last week.

There is a wild chicken outside my window and it is making a helluva racket.

I had no idea a single chicken could be so loud.
