And now for something completely different…

“… a man with three buttocks.”

LOL. Oh. Right. We’re not talking about Monty Python. Even though that phrase is my standard answer whenever anyone says “and now for something completely different.” I just had to give it a little shout-out.

Hah, you thought that was it for my experimental blogging day, right? No? Anyway, back to our scheduled program.

2011 2KCBW

Today’s post is all about:

Day Five: 1st April. And now for something completely different
This is an experimental blogging day to try and push your creativity in blogging to the same level that you perhaps push your creativity in the items you create.

There are no rules of a topic to blog about (though some suggestions are given below) but this post should look at a different way to present content on your blog. This can take one of many forms, but here a few suggestions:

  • Wordless, photographic post
  • Video blog post
  • Podcast
  • Cartoon/sketch of an idea
  • Write about a subject from a different perspective (for example, you could write about a day in the life of a knitted sock from the point of view of the sock).
  • Interpretive modern dance (why does someone always suggest this?
  • A poem or piece of rhyming verse
  • Stop motion animation

So, in the spirit of today, April’s Fools Day, I’ve had to come up with something else. Unfortunately, there aren’t any Monty Python skits talking about knitting (shocking, right?). But since today’s post can also deal with interpretive modern dance, I offer you another “dance” video:

I’m really having fun with today’s post – think outside the box, right? And in case you were wondering “Where’s the knitting?” – here you go (found through creative googling):

I’ve definitely brought my inner geek out to play today. So if you’re interested in more that I do kn the world of kintting, you can find me on Ravelry, username anji. And if you’re interested in seeing other posts on the topic ‘A Tale of Two Yarns’ from other bloggers who’ll be blogging today on this topic, just search on Google (or another search engine) for the tag 2KCBWDAY4, and on Twitter #2KCBW.

ETA: Somehow this post bypassed it’s scheduling and showed up on the 31st – as a result it was seen, and ended up receiving this award from Aaron D. Graham:

Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Aaron! I’ll put up another post about the 7 random factoids about me, and nominate 15 other new bloggers. But I think that’ll have to wait till tomorrow.



  1. […] What is better than a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as seen in my previous blog?  Duhhh, what gives every Nerd hours of pointless recital?  Monty Python, of course.  The funniest part of this post was that evidently, Monty Python is different from the other things she blogs about…namely Knitting, Reading and Photography.  Now THAT is funny.  Yesterday, “Working the Heel Of A Sock with a Large Diameter Circular Knit”  Today, Monty Python.  Oh yes, she gets a major award: […]


  2. Hey, I loved your blog and have decided to nominate you for the “Versatile Blogger Award” This was handed down to me, and I now leave it in your capable hands. If you chose to accept this honor, there are some obligations. Not many. Just 3. (Technically there are 23, but who’s counting)

    Seriously though, I did enjoy your post. You can read about your blog here:


  3. Brilliant! I think Monty Python, too, when I hear “And now for something completely different …”

    And at least there were more deaths by camping than knitting. 🙂
