I’ve been super busy IRL, but I’ve also created something in the interwebs world. My friends and I have started a podcast.

It is called Fuck This Knit

We talk about knitting while drinking beer. We swear a lot. And we have opinions. I’m not going to go too much into the content because you just have to listen.  Its only three episodes, but we have plans for more.  We post them on the second Tuesday of the month.

Go.  Check it out.

Looking Forward To:

I’m super close to my due date, and honestly I’m just ready.  Not ready as in everything is set up nicely for the little one.  But ready as in I’m over this preggo thing.

I’ve been over it for quite a while, but now that I see the light at the end of the tunnel I can’t help but to get a little anxious.  I know that once I reach the end, my world is going to be flipped upside down, backwards, and probably inside out.

I’m okay with this.

I’m also okay with the list of things that I’ve been looking forward to for the past few months.

  • Beer
  • Laying on my stomach
  • Running
  • Not being the center of attention

But its mostly just running and beer

Pumpkin Shumpkin

If there is one sure fire way to get me riled up, its to see seasonal items out of season.  Doesn’t matter if its Krampus music right after Halloween, or seeing Vday items before the new year hits.

I feel like companies spend so much time trying to be the first one out of the gate that they forget about celebrating thoroughly the current holiday or season.  The beer companies are guilty of this as well.  I’m already seeing pumpkin beers.

pumpkin out of seasonIts August, I’m gearing up to visit the fair, and I’m in a skirt and tank top for crying out loud!!  Pumpkin is a fall beer… It isn’t fall yet and I’ve seen pumpkin beers in the store for weeks now.  Where did all my shandy beers and summer ales go?  Hot weather calls for crisp light beers.  Not sure about where you live, but its still hitting the 90’s here.  I don’t want a mouth full of nutmeg and cinnamon just yet.

So beer companies, please check your calendars.  Oktoberfest beers in Sept, Pumpkin in Oct/Nov, and Christmas ales in Dec.  Thank you.

Full Disclosure:  I’m not really a fan of pumpkin beers in general, the only one I like is the New Holland Ichabod.
