Dead Milkmen


Thanks to the wonderful Lotus Knits for making my month by sending me this fabulous yarn. I squealed when I got it in the mail, and it procured a similar response when I showed it to my best friend Naomi. It's name: Punk Rock Girl just like the Dead Milkmen's song from the late 80's, so I thought I'd photograph it with my Docs from that same time period. Yikes! I can't believe I've had these boots over 20 years. I love the contrast of the pink and black and I can't wait to find a sock pattern that will be worthy of this yarn. Now maybe I can persuade her to make a colorway that consist of red, white, and black for one of my favorite bands, The White Stripes. Perhaps she could name it "Icky thump", or "Jack and Meg". Just maybe...

I'm so glad to see PRG on your blog!!

I'm totally down for dyeing up something White Stripes inspired...we'll come up with something!

Oh, and I got the little jump drives from the WS website. :)

Love love love Lotus Knits' yarn--her colors are great! Several hanks have followed me home and are cheering up my living room, waiting for their turn on the swift. I think a White Stripes yarn would be wonderful...and I'd probably be unable to resist its call!
