What my wife likes to do in her spare time.

OK, as you all know, I've pimped other websites and products here and there, mostly either for fun or some sort of freebie giveaway (I never did get an assbrella, those bastards). I don't get many offers for that kind of thing, probably because I tell them upfront that I'll likely make fun of them, and that doesn't sit well with some of the blog advertising outfits.

Not this time. This time, to do so would cost me dearly.

So with all seriousness, I ask you to please check out my wife's website. No, it's not P0rn, unless you happen to be into the whole holding-down-animals-and shaving-them-bare-and-then-making-yarn-out-of-the-shavings kind of thing.

Dammit. I knew I couldn't be completely serious. I am definitely not getting laid tonight.

  1. I like your wife already - she's a fan of the style of the '30s and
    '40s and so am I! Has she been to the online forum, The Fedora Lounge? If not, she might want to check it out. Several Golden-Era enthusiasts there...

  4. I think your wife should plug your blog somewhere on her website.

  5. Her stuff rocks out loud. I just bought a hat. Can't afford the scarf yet. She needs a mail/newsletter signup on her site so we can stay tuned to new designs and colors.

  6. I guess maybe you'd better start looking up some porn...

  7. Melissa, "Oh, never mind.." is about right.

    Corey, I'll tell her!

    Beck! Awesome! She said as the first customer from my blog, she'll put a little something extra in the package. Now if she said that to me, I'd be scared, but I think you're fine.

    Travis what do you mean "look up?"

  8. Ahhhhh!!!

    I was just at Frivolous last weekend!! I didn't know!!!

    But--considering I dropped an asshat's worth of cash on the down payment for the kid's prom dress, I'll have to purchase her wares next time...

    More worrisome...we must practically be neighbors.

    LOL!

  9. Your wife crochets? That does it. We're having you guys over for dinner. (You know, if you're ever in Texas.)

    I am also a weaver/knitter, her wares are gorgeous. Just to make you look a little geeky for your followers- you must know about Raverly.

  11. Well, I tried but apparently my browser (latest version of firefox) is missing some java applet (opportunity to download was not offered) so I couldn't open the site.

  12. GSE, It's done using flash, so you'd need that plugin. Until I can make something myself, anyway.

  13. No, they aren't all bad pictures. I did love the product, just not the pictures. Totally busted me, too. Actually the one of the hat in the store was really good, but you are right, the dark hats, need help. It is pretty common in the crafts for the pictures not match the fantastic-ness of the product. I wasn't just picking on your wife, was something that I've been noticing for a while. Thus another reason I don't do well in polite society. I can say the right thing in the wrong way.

    Good luck!

  14. Ha! Yes, I plan on reshooting the dark hats on a light background or at the very least messing with them in photoshop to increase the contrast between hat and background. It's ok, I agree -- some of them are craptastic. :)

  15. Wow, no wonder she makes such a beautiful Christmas tree - your wife is super-talented! Beautiful stuff. Since that groundhog screwed it all up & we're getting MORE winter this week, I'm about ready for some stylish new winter accessories, too.

  16. That picture of your wife in the "about me" section is pretty provocative....did you take that picture?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yes, I took all of them for better or for worse...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ha, that's awesome! Your wife is a girl after my own heart. Somehow UPS managed to deliver me a box yesterday (I am in Maryland) full of yummy stuff to spin. Somewhere there is a naked sheep that has made me very happy.

    That probably came out wrong. I'm assuming she's a Ravelry addict, but if not, you should point her in that direction. Forum Mecca for all things fiber-related.

    Does she spin her own yarn? I have no idea what the terminology for that is. It would be fun if she had a little more info about the process (and terminology) and all the loving touches I am sure she puts in. :)
    Very cool hats! Does she also make them for enormous head sizes?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, she will make one based on your hat size if you know it. They're pretty stretchy, but she's made some that are larger than the average melon.

    ReplyDelete
  21. ps - yes, she spins. We are constantly doing things like visiting alpaca farms. I really thinks she wants one, but I have to put my foot down somewhere. And I prefer that to be somewhere other than in a pile of alpaca poo.

  22. Your wife's "About Me" states that she's "currently" living with her husband.........sounds like she's going to bail once her site takes off. You've been warned.

  23. Always nice to see another knitter, crocheter. Love the hats. Does she have any plans to sell patterns?

    I'll join the Ravelry chorus. Love.that.place. Well, almost as much as 15 minute lunch.

  24. "I really thinks she wants one, but I have to put my foot down somewhere" - LOL!
    i'm sure that will change....eventually! :)
    your wife's hats are really cute - I wish her all the best!
    and i guess i'll add my voice to the chorus of ravelry fans....it's a really cool site and it's so nice to be surrounded by peeps that share the yarn love :)
    i'm irasis on there.

  25. Another Ravelry overlapper - who knew we had such good taste? I'm Needlegrrl.

  26. JV - Mrs. JV is about to take over. Her designs are beautiful and the color combinations are perfect! I love the rose and mint green combo. I will try to order a hat and scarf for my daughter who loves little cloches and things. I wish much continued success for Mrs JV in her new ventures! Be Blessed,

    I Love the stuff your wife makes, I sew, but alas do not have any of the creative genes your wife has. I also live in Southern California, i would be able to wear 3 whole days out of the year. If I ever move or travel east in the winter I'll be sure to stop buy.
