I really love music. I’m not musical at all but I listen to music with everything. I listen to a lot of different music. I've been to a lot of concerts. I even used to interview bands. I obsess over music. I’m always listening to music. There are books I’ve read that in my head have albums that are basically playlists because I kept on repeat all while I read. Oddly enough, most of those seem fitting matches too.
I also became obsessed this winter with the big loopy cowl (just ask Ronni I was a crazy person). I’ve been resisting casting one on since probably October. I love them. They're just so neat looking and versatile.
I recently started following Zooey Deschanel on twitter. (Actually I just recently got on twitter, I resisted that for a long time too.) That led e to start listening to her music (band? IDK what they call it). I was kind of non-stop listening to She & Him for a long while. This song in particular got a lot of play time:
After listening to this song (and the album it’s on) about 25 times I realized that I was so obsessed with this one song in particular because within one of my yarn cubbies this long forgotten stashed yarn (Lamb's Pride Bulky in Blue Magic) and this pattern (the Gap-tastic cowl) were singing:
Why do you let me stay here All by myself?Over and over all I could hear drawing me to the yarn and the pattern was:
Why don’t you come and play here? I’m just sitting on the shelf
I’m just sitting on the shelf
Next thing I knew I was pretty much involuntarily knitting the Gap-tastic Cowl and humming this song while I did. I’m almost through the second skein of yarn. I have 3+ skeins, but I kind of think it might be wide enough with 2 skeins.
