Super Corndog!

So, I got a call from my mother this morning asking me when the hell I plan on posting again. Okay. Okay! I get it. I've been seriously remiss in my posting duties. I have an excuse though. A good one at that. February has been a month in which I've been buried beneath projects with publishing deadlines. Now, this may seem pretty cool in theory. However, in reality I succeeded in overextended myself to the edge of sanity. I'm almost finished though and just need to stay focused until the process is complete.

Okay, let me state for the record that upon completion of this completely self-imposed ordeal, I'm making whatever I want, whenever I want. And I will be toasting many a glass full of spirits in celebration of my new found freedom!

Maybe I need a glass of spirits right now. You know, to celebrate my impending celebration? I digress.

I have been working on other items here and there in between the deadliners. These in-betweeners have become my refuge from my almost certain decent into the dribble cup realm. Although I think today's featured piece o' apparel is testament to my current downward slide.

Nothing like a cape with corndogs to soothe my beleaguered hands....


Modeled by the hubster on our condo rooftop.

Don't ask me what possessed me to crochet corndog appliques for a cape that was originally meant to be part of another SuperLinoleum ensemble. They look mighty tasty though. Uh, tasty as any acrylic mystery meat products could be that is.



This um, err, intriguing addition to Project Wrongway is brought to you by heaps of good ole Red Heart Super Saver acrylic yarn. (Should corndogs atop a super hero cape be crocheted and knitted with any other fiber? I think not.)

So yeah, padded walls and dribble cups may not be far away, but I'm sure to the most fashionable patient on the locked ward.

Oooo...love the corn dogs. Nothin' goes better with Hot Dog on a Stick than a large cup of REAL lemonade! I just love watching those chicks in their 60's red, white, blue and yellow outfits and funny hats pumping lemons in tubs for lemonade. Hmmm? Maybe you could add a cup o' lemonade?

stickchick said...

uummmmm, corndogs. Everyone loooves corndogs, just some are too snooty to admit it! I admire you for showing your love of corndogs in vibrant RedHeart Yarn!

It just seems a duo meant to be, Red Heart and corndogs, what could be more perfect together??

Micky said...

I don't know which I find more frightening - that it would even occur to you to crochet a corndog, or the fact there exists yarn in precisely the shade o' corndog?! Actually, upon reflection, I think the latter is more frightening. The former I've gotten used to.

Cheesy Knit Wit said...

That corndog cape is awesome! I'm totally feeling it, and I consider myself crazy (much). So I think your good. I might need a corndog patch to sew to my jeans jacket. Squee!

Micky said...

Yea because of this post, I went out and bought a big ole box of corndogs.
Yummy.
But I limit myself to two a day. I have always had a weak spot for those!
