Yes I am nerdy like this.
I logged into Ravelry yesterday as usual. The first tab I always click on is the patterns tab so I can see what new patterns have been uploaded. The patterns page also contains an assorted list of designers who have patterns in Ravelry, and it includes the corresponding avatar. These seem to be chosen at random. Well guess who finally made it to the patterns page?? Check out the “ravatar” on the bottom… You probably think I’m totally off my rocker, but I have to say this totally made my day!
Now to a story totally unrelated to knitting. I received notification yesterday that I had a certified letter waiting for me at the post office. So this morning DH and I trekked to the post office to find out what it was. Ahem, are you ready for this? It was from the US Customs and Border Protection office alerting me that someone tried to send me 3 chocolate Kinder Surprise eggs with toys inside, valued at $3.00. Homeland Security said the chocolate eggs were seized and are “subject to forfeiture” because these eggs violate some US code. So when I got home I looked it up online and sure enough, you are not allowed to import this candy into the US because the toy inside can be a choking hazard to someone under the age of 3. Gee, thanks for keeping me safe. Heck, I just might have thought I was supposed to eat that little plastic toy inside. I really owe you one. Why not enjoy my delicious chocolate while you’re at it??
In my next post I’ll show you Emily’s lovely new sweater she just finished knitting.
