More Wrestling Hijinks

Last weekend, Southern Championship Wrestling, my favorite wrestling promotion, celebrated it's 9th Anniversary. It was a fun night and I got to squeak the National Anthem. Notice I said squeak. It's always a hard one for me to do. I played a trick on my buddy Chris Carson, the owner of the federation and one of my sock recipients. He has a gimmick he has been doing for years that is called "DTW" - Don't Trust Women. Well, Mr. Carson has gotten to know a few of my knitting friends and we decided it was time for the women to fight back. So I had a bunch of tshirts made that said "DTC" - Don't Trust Carson and I had my knitty friends and a few select wrestlers wear them to the show on Saturday. It was fun seeing Carson's reaction. Needless to say we are still talking LOL
P.S. The wrestler with the hot back side is none other than Slyck Wagner Brown. I have the pleasure of doing transport duty for him everytime he is in town. Real nice guy and hot to boot!

Final SP-9

My SP-9 downstream, Jennie, finally received her gifts so I can post my picture of the fingerless gloves I made her. They were knit out of Sockotta using their free pattern. It was a lot of fun doing this swap on the knittyboard and I look forward to doing another one sometime next year.

Secret Stash

I went to the post office to pick up my mail today and was pleasantly surprised to find a package from my Secret Pal 9 pal. It turns out my pal is Amber Kitty! She sent me some lovely presents. The books Favorite Socks and Folk Shawls (she must have seen my Amazon list.) She also included a stitch and needle gauge, some chocolate (which is almost gone already), a really neat tape measure which is a crocheted cake (I have included a separate picture.) I have decided I'm going to start collecting tape measures because there are so many neat ideas for them. There was also a bag of what I call doo dads that you can use for earrings, etc. I love everything that I have received and appreciate Amber for being a great Secret Pal. I haven't mailed out my last pal package because I'm finishing up a present for mine. I only have about 8 more rows and should get it in the mail tomorrow or Tuesday. I'm having a hard time finding time for knitting with my apartment hunting. For those of you who don't know, my husband and I are splitting up so I am looking for new digs. I think I have found a cute apartment with enough closet space for me and all my crafts and will probably move the end of December or middle of January. Once this is settled I hope to start getting caught up on knitting.

Eye Candy

I have been having a difficult time lately and don't seem to be getting my knitting done fast enough, but I did end up going to a fun wrestling match on Saturday for UXW in Orlando. I didn't take a lot of pictures because my camera was not working great but I did manage to take pictures of some hot wrestlers. The two outside gentlemen are the Shane Twins who are national wrestlers and the middle is Bruce Santee, one of the better local wrestler. Hot stuff!
