of The Alpaca Kind

Remember Close Encounters of The Third Kind?


Where Richard Dreyfuss maniacally sculpts his mashed potato



Into Devil’s Mountain?





Well I’ve knitted it

I love it!!

I used to make a mashed potato and tomato sauce volcano when I was a kid (sometimes I still do...). I probably also used to have the tongue in just the right spot, a la Richard Dreyfus, too!!

eruption! Mt Fuji!
at least it's not too girlie. zzz.

Can it smoke? I think, fellow knitster, with your powers of invention and your desire for risk you could achieve this.
Let me give you some creative dreamweaving tips. Buy a small metal vessel, like a kettle, or better still, an hibachi, konishiwa. Build within it a fire, then let it die. Borrow a thick red ribbon from the goat (all Baptists wear red ribbons). If she doesn't have one stashed away in her secret drawer, then drop her and crochet a fine strip of fabric, around....one and one half feet long. Tie the (still smouldering) hibachi onto the uppermost top of your head. Pull that strange hat creation over the ensemble and, voila, your mountain will become a volcanic fountain.

Oh, that was exhausting, and really in the light of the world falling apart around us, quite trite.

How's agatha? I miss her. I would like you to place her more frequently on your website.

Braid Fluff says "hi" and also "mind your beeswax". The last comment was directed to moi.

Dream dreams of bobbins, buttons and coarse yarn.

the "Devil's Mountain" beanie made me pee my pants
I love the film references mixed with the knitting stuff - I think you've
discovered a startlingly resonant new fusion
