How to embed youtube videos into my blog posts!
(Btw, it is easy!!!!)




To celebrate I am giving away 2 skeins of Schaefer Yarn's Heather and the pattern to make my latest design Brickhouse! Leave a comment and share one of your favorite songs with me (I would love a link but it seems that comments won't post with links.... sorry!) before Tuesday October 6th. I'll use a random number generator and announce the lucky winner!

77 comments:

  1. our latest download and listening kick is the theme to "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly". the little boy is on a spaghetti western kick.

  5. Teenage Dirtbag always has me singing along while appreciating that "I'm a middle-aged squeaky clean mummy" would be a more accurate version. But I wouldn't mind being a middle-aged shawl-knitting mummy... in Schaefer Yarn's Heather of course!

  8. Brick House has always been one of my fav songs with a great memory. My girlfriend and I were out at the House of Blues one night and the group played Brick House and were looking for dancers to come up on stage. My girlfriend grabbed me and brought me up. Meanwhile our husbands were sitting there and someone made a comment and her husband said "that's my wife", then found out he was talking about me, my husband quickly said "That's MY wife" One of the best nights I ever had!

  10. LOVE Holding Out For A Hero by Bonnie Tyler. Its one of those songs that I crank up and sing (scream) at the top of my lungs!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm totally jumping on this gravy train! Congrats on learning that super awesome skill, by the way.

    Favorite song: Papa was a Rolling Stone, by Sly and the Family Stone.

    A belated congratulations on your recent publications, too! I've been remiss in my blog-reading rituals and totally missed that post!<3

  12. I wish I could learn how to do those fancy computer tricks! I like the song at the moment is Shock Attack with Mick Jagger and the Jackson 5.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hmm, picking just one is difficult. A soothing song for me right now is Private Universe by Crowded House.

    ReplyDelete
  14. In honor of the inspiration, Lucy Voddel (sp?), I'm going with the Beatles' "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." RIP, Lucy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Barenaked Ladies - If I had a Million Dollars. It always get me singing and smiling.

    Brickhouse is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes it is a great song and design!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Looks like you've been cranking out the patterns, which look great. How about A Hard Day's Night to keep the creative juices flowing?

    ReplyDelete
  18. In honor of the pattern, I will say Foundations by Kate Nash. It's really quite down lyrics, but I LOVE the chorus, her voice and the music. I love listening to it over and over when I'm working on something. Not G rated though! Part of the chorus is: My fingertips are holding onto the cracks in our foundation,/ And I know that I should let go, but I can't./ And every time we fight I know it's not right,

    ReplyDelete
  19. My favorite is "Use Somebody" by Kings of Leon. It's just awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love Remains the Same by Gavin Rossdale

    ReplyDelete
  21. My sister and I often break out in song to Tell Me Something Good. Even in public places. LOL

    Brickhouse is definately a good one too!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the Beatles, and Hey Jude always makes me nostalgic!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow, what a lovely pattern! My favorite song changes all the time, but I always love wailing along to "I Drove All Night" by Cindy Lauper.

  25. the songs in my head right now are the "theme from neverending story" and "ooh, child" as i've finally given a name to my mystery sock pattern based on neverending story.

    the second song is because one of my online friends got that one stuck in her head after hearing what i named the sock..."moonchild"

    ReplyDelete
  26. That is a pretty pattern.

    My favorite song changes all the time. Right now this minute I would go with "Girls Just wanna have fun". Guess that is because I have been getting my holiday knitting done.

Thanks for providing a forum for us to share, and especially thanks for the giveaway!

  29. I'd go with Tusk by Fleetwood Mac. The live version with the USC marching band as backup. It's the song that made being in a marching band cool.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hmm, how is it that no one has mentioned Bobby Darin's classic "Mack the Knife"? Eh? Most upbeat, catchy song ever written about a serial killer. ::sings:: Oh the shark bites, with his teeth, dear/and he shos them pearly whi-ite!

  52. Brick House, the mainstay of college house parties in my youth.

  75. I just saw a post about your contest. Great fun. My favorite is "Over the Rainbow" - Judy Garland

    ReplyDelete
  76. Oooh - love the pattern, would love to try the yarn. I know intellectually that random can be first, last or middle, but somehow it feels like being last or near the end makes it very unlikely to win. But maybe being number 77 is lucky.

    My favorite is Hey Jude by the Beatles. Or maybe ...
