Because I ran out of mint...

I'm knitting something new but it's secret stuff that I can't show you--I'm told there are rules about these things. Whatever. I'll knit fast so I can show you, one way or another, sooner or later.

So what else have I been up to, you ask? You may have heard things, especially if you read blogs like Traveling Ann. Do not listen to the rumors. I'm not nearly as nice as she makes me out to be. Or as sarcastic. O.K, fine! I'm sarcastic--I'm working on that telling the truth stuff. If you follow Donna Druchunas (Twitter (@druchunas) I'll be left here tomorrow night when the End of the World thing happens. Fine with me. My yarn stash is way to big to leave behind and I'm pretty sure The Rapture is carry on bags only.

In case you're also going to be around for the weekend, you might want to try this tasty adult beverage I concocted. It was inspired by a drink called a Moscow Mule. I'm calling mine the Atlanta Mule. Cheers!

Atlanta Mule

1 ½ oz Vodka
½ oz peach schnapps
3 oz ginger beer

Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled rocks glass, stir gently, then garnish with optional stitch markers, or mint sprigs.


  1. That sounds delicious!
    And hey, you'll be in good company after tomorrow. At least I can speak for myself and I know I'll be around after tomorrow. . . ;)

  2. you'll be needing a minion or two at the rapture, so I'll carry the bags of wool! See you there!

  3. What do you mean, we can't take it with us? I was hoping for knitting in the afterlife... Imagine a place where the yarn is always soft, gauge is always spot on, and stitches never fall off the needles.

  4. I'll take two, please! Last night I finished our whiskey (we are moving! We have to drink ALL the things) and my husband called me a gross man since it wasn't mixed with anything.

  5. I plan on being here. My stash is also way to big to fit in the carry-on bags. And I just started two new needlepoint projects.

  6. I'm with Marushka. Although if we have to leave this world in the same state we arrived in I'll be lacking in pockets in which to stash my Malabrigo!

  7. Yum! I'm going to have to try this since I'm already a big fan of the Moscow Mule. I neigh every time I order one. Like, "I'll have a Moscow Mule. You know, like *neigh*"

  8. ...and then you're going to KNIT? Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! No good can come from this.

    After the rapture, can I sit next to YOU and knit. We can make snarky comments about those taken. LOL

  9. Oh, I totally knew you'd be cooling your heels on Earth with me after Saturday.
    Don't think a few little giveaways are going to help.

  10. Having a great stash is rapture enough for me.


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
