You Can't See Through My Opacity!

Oh. Em. Gee. I haven't laughed so much since the first time I watched Eddie Izzard's "Dress to Kill". The Tobacco Valley Stitch 'n Bitch group is so much fun! I sat with the two guys (Two! Eeee!) and spent most of the time quoting Eddie Izzard, Invader Zim, and Monty Python, making references to role-playing games, and saying things like, "sure, you can see through my transparency, but you can't see through my opacity!"

There were two slightly weird things that happened, though. First, some 4-H people I've known since I was 7 years old came in and broke my cover. So one or two SnBers know that my name isn't really Lilith. It's not a secret-identity thing, I just like "Lilith" better than my real name. The second weird thing is that the guy I shared a table with bore a striking resemblance to my David. It wasn't just the longish hair and goatee, the voice and sense of humor matched, too. And, of course, the knitting, though this guy confessed to being "teh newb" with his garter stitch scarf. Sadly, he doesn't wear kilts.

Pity. We need more kilted men in this world. ;)

I worked on Greenery v.2 for a while, then knit, frogged, and re-knit a few rows of the SuperSockeSock. The Claudia sock has been frogged because I got to the heel and realized it was too small. I'm on a lace kick thanks to Tangerine (three repeats to go), so I'm thinking of doing something lacey with the ex-Claudia yarn. I just have to figure out what. I don't think there's enough for a shawl. Suggestions? It's 420 yards (4 oz.) of Cherry Tree Hill superwash fingering weight merino.

It's so time for bed now.

Hey, I feel duped!
What's your "real" name?

Ohhh! I feel a contest coming on!

It's Aaron. And I know her "real" name. I will be auctioning off that information to the highest bidder. The opening bid starts at, let's say, one MEEELLION dollars ;)

It was nice to meet you tonight. Looking forward to more hijinx next thursday!

Aaron, I'll make you wear a kilt if you tell anyone before I do. :P A contest does sound like a good idea... maybe after I get back from TX.

Aaron said...

Oh noez! Not a kilt! Girly skirtz for men! rawr!

Hee hee... I'm such a pain in the ass!

Oh, and I'm bored at work.

Yes... so very bored.

I know her true identity, along with some things you can only know by spending five days in the car with someone.


I like your real name, but Lilith is cool too.

420 yards wouldn't be enough for a full blown shawl, but perhaps a pretty lacy scarf?

OK, now my interest is REALLY piqued on the TV group. I love me some geeky knittin boys ;) and I especially love women masquerading as Lilith, ancient queen of succubi lust. Ahem.
