Clown Stripe


What's that? Another Hopscotch top?? Why yes it is!
 The fabric is Michael Miller Clown Stripe and I made this in a size 6 instead of a 5 like last time.

I LOVE this fabric and I love this pattern!

In fact I love it so much I have stacks of knit just waiting to be made in to Hopscotch tops!

All of these were bought on etsy from various sellers.

Ava is now entering the "I don't like____" stage. It can be you she doesn't like or her Shaun the Sheep or the TV. It all depends on who wronged her. Today I yelled at her because she took one bottle of liquid Tylenol and mixed it with some cough medicine. Now I have one empty bottle of Tylenol and one bottle of half Tylenol and half cough medicine. I'm not even going to talk about that fact that she did this without me knowing. Scary! That must have happened when I was passed out on the couch with a bucket of chicken on my chest. Anyway, I yelled at her and she started screaming "I don't like daddy!". He was at work and had nothing to do with anything. THAT was funny!

I'm listening to another book by Mary Roach (she wrote Stiff). It's called Packing for Mars. It's good but of course not nearly as good or as interesting as Stiff! But I still recommend it.

I love the tops, and that pile of knits is awesome!!! That story about Ava is pretty funny. Did you have a lit cigarette in your hand while you were passed out with that bucket of chicken? Hahahaha!

Man I like those tops! I have some of that MM stripe in brown for the little guy. The other knits you have are awesome! Emily is soooo cute.

Oh Ava Ava. Jennifer you make me laugh and Kelly you made me laugh even harder.

Kelly, you made me laugh too! When I was thinking about what I was doing while she played pharmacist these things entered my mind: passed out with a hypodermic needle and a bucket of chicken
(Aiden from sex and the city). Aiden was in his underwear with a bucket of chicken and no hypodermic needle but they all entered my mind at the same time. A lit cigarette would have topped the whole thing off!

That's hilarious about Ava - last year we were on vacation and I told Sienna she had to get out of the pool. She didn't know how to say "I don't like you" so she told me that she didn't love me any more!

I'm not sure I'm believing the whole "I was passed out with a bucket of chicken" story. As believable as that sounds.......!!!!!!! What were you really doing??? Stroking fabric?

Oh man, Ava is a trip...and the whole chicken dialogue in the comments had me lol-ing too! Too funny.

I love those tops you've been making, and I LOVE those knits! I still haven't tried my hand with knits....they scare me.
