I recently bought a pair of size 19 knitting needles and HOLY COW are those things big. They’re about as long as my forearms and nearly as big around. I was joking with Mich the other night about how I could use them for kobudo (Okinawan weapons, which I do as part of my karate training). Then I decided to see if I actually could use them in a kata. Guess what? Those size 19 needles work just fine for sai and tanbo kate! I can’t wait to take them to karate class and show my sensei what I can do with them ;D
In other news, I’ve posted the “Fear Me” t-shirts for sale on Zazzle.com. I have both women’s fit and uni-sex shirts available. All profits from the sales of these t-shirts go to DonorsChoose.org, the charity supported by the Colbert Report and the March To Keep Fear Alive. I will be at the march with my t-shirt, devil horns, and demon-winged backpack, so if you’re there too, keep an eye out for me. Until then, buy a “Fear Me” t-shirt for yourself or for that strong, smart, scary woman in your life, or donate directly to DonorsChoose.org. The money goes to help classrooms in need.
