Here in Arizona, summer is still not anywhere near ending, even in mid-September. Soccer season has begun for the kids, which means sitting in over 100 degree temps to watch practice. So what can a parent do to pass the time during such heat? Of course! Crochet a nice warm wooly poncho. Makes perfect sense...or not. I am pretty sure the other parents think I have heat stroke. I probably do, but there I sit, covered is a super warm poncho as I watch. Maybe next week it will be cooler...

There is a scene in "Field of Dreams" where James Earl Jones's character pretends to spray something out of an old fashioned bug sprayer at Kevin Costner and yelling "Back to the 60's!!" Imagine me spraying legwarmers with this same device and yelling "Back to the 80s!". Now, I had a pair of maroon legwarmers with gold glittery thread running through them in 6th grade. I thought I was very cool. But that was in 1980 something. Since it is now 2009, I really want leg warmers need to stay in my tween memories and not something that my kids may ask me to make. I am semi horrified to see they have made a return... Sigh, it seems like everything does. At least no one is trying to bring back hoop skirts and powdered wigs.....yet.

I am sure many of us think "Gee, I really wish I had dreadlocks" and then decided that you really didn't have the time to grow your hair out and let it become a matted mess. Or perhaps you wanted the braided hair that people get when vacationing in the Caribbean. No more waiting (or less waiting). Someone finally came up with a pattern for you (Cute little bows are optional).
I figured I would spare the model from having to relive doing this photo shoot. I am sure "oh good lord, do I really need the money this badly", was probably running through her head and she sat their faking a smile. I am sure someone was sitting in the background discussing how really cool their creation was. Sigh, they were wrong. But if this is the look you are going for, keep your hair clean, brushed and unbraided, and instead, pick up your favorite hair colored yarn.
