900 years of time and space

Man oh man oh man.

I feel like I have a lot to say but it’s just not coming out.  I need to do some design tidying here, which isn’t helping.  Is avoidance a superpower?  Can I just sew a big red “A” on my shir … yeah … never mind.

In the meantime, since words are on some kind of I-didn’t-ask-for-it hiatus, here is some more neato signage from my superdupe neighbourhood.

I noticed the yarn bombing first (and figured out later that it might have been posted for International Yarn Bombing Day):

When I got a bit closer, I saw the blue sign — you can see it peeking out at bottom — and grabbed a pic of that, too:

I’ve not seen an episode of Doctor Who since, oh, 1980, but I knew right away that this had to be a quote from the series (internet confirms it is so).

There aren’t many characters who can lay claim to that kind of life experience, and there’s the obvious overlapping of the fandom and knitting communities (not to be confused with the overlapping of dodgy neighbourhoods and knitting communities).

(And before you even say it, yes, it’s crochet, not knitting.)

Comments

  1. The Doctor is universal…and will soon go through another regeneration. How could you last thirty some years without the Doctor? Hmm. Might be a reference to Tom baker, yes, but could also be a random space time comment designed to totally irritate yarn-hating individuals…I’m guessing the latter.

  2. Love the yarn bombing.

  3. every tree should wear a sweater

  4. What a fun neighborhood you live in.
