So, if you were 48 and me and in the market for/considering your first tattoo -- not sayin' that I've made an appointment -- in a kind of (hopefully not too painful) solidarity-with-the-kiddos move, though not yet the youngest, in a "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" way -- but in a more protective super-mom-power way, like, look how I can take the heat and divert bad vibes from you to me -- and also because you've been pondering it for a while... maybe you've been channeling your inner Rhonda. Not too big, but not too small, and then again, maybe kinda sorta medium big (if you're going to do it...), but not like all over your back or anything... 'cuz ouch, honey, that looks so painful... anyway...
What design would you do? And where would you do it? Well, not IT, but THAT -- where would you have a tattoo placed? I'm thinking Celtic. Tell me.

A little housecleaning today -- items from my Bloglines list to list here instead:
The baby sweater will be blocked before it is seamed this weekend (man, is it curly!) and while it's drying, I'll finish the Latvian mitten thumbs (and maybe update the Knit Like A Latvian KAL blog that I am hostess of) now that I know there's someone(s) that they'll fit, even though the weather isn't suitable. Speaking of Latvian Mittens -- go see Maia's here (what a difference scale makes in photography!) and then here. And also speaking of mittens, don't forget Terri's new book Selbuvotter -- the pre-order shipping deal expires at the end of the month.
Even older than Carole's recipe is this post/Mirelle pattern (pdf) at Through the Loops! More recently and seasonally spectacular is Linea (hopefully soon a pattern?). Kristen is also the designer of Tahoe in the new Knitty.
It might soon be time for a Vicki webring.
As a former typesetter, myself, I absolutely loved the haiku at the end of this post... Hahahaha. I shot the serif... Hahahaha. (Is there milk coming out of my nose?)
