Why do I identify with Trisha/Trashy?

Thanks for a look into your past life. Now I understand. ;)

That is one terrible-with-raisins knitted family tree. I love it!

though, I have an ominous feeling that Juicy Couture will be selling some version of Trashy McNoPants this year.

Wow... I think that Mickey sweater may just be the scariest knit thing I've seen (although those knitted ski masks that are faces are quite serious competition). Any other contenders I've successfully (at least for the moment) forgotten about.

OMG! I haven't laughed so much about knitting in a looong time! Now I'm inspired to dig out all those old knitting patterns in my stash.

Don't worry, I've called Child Protective Services. Little Oompah, Loompah & Veruca are safe now. ALthough Veruca keeps shouting "I want a golden pair of gaucho knickers and I want them now!"

WHERE do come up with this stuff? You should consider being a stand up comedian or a story teller for children (or adults) or something. I love reading your blog, by the way, and I've linked you to my blog page because your entries make me smile (I linked the page where you showed us what Dot had pooped out). Thanks :)

Trashy McNopants has to be the best name I've ever heard. I laughed out loud so long that my eight month old son was looking at me like I was crazy.

Ms. McYarnpants, you are the second biggest reason I have to double the number of underdrawers I have to keep. That and the fact that I had six children in rapid succession buy let us not get bogged down in details!

What a breath of fresh air this MOKS is. And I didn't have to pay an admission charge or stiffle my laughter! I'm so glad that others have linked your page. I will spread the gospel of the MOKS to others and convert them as well.
Can't wait for more exhibits to open!
(Although I was a little disappointed there were no clowns in your family).
