the most wonderful job in the whole, whole world

I missed the Marshmallow Peeps Fun Bus by one day when I visited Portland last fall. Look, here it is without me:

How great would it be to drive the Peeps Fun Bus? It’d be even better than driving the weinermobile! If you want to see where the two Fun Buses toured, go to the web site. My favorite photo has got to be the West Virginia shot with the two peeps sitting on a log in front of the bus. It kills me. I love Peeps so much it hurts.
And how speedy is elann? I got my 2nd batch of Rogue yarn today! It’s Classic Elite Maya in husk. I was a little worried about the color when I placed my order, but phew! I love it. It is sort of sagey/pistachioey/greeny/browny/lovely.
Please knit to gauge. Please knit to gauge. Please knit to gauge.

    OMG! I didn’t know they had a marshmallow peeps bus! I LOVE it! And you know what? I could drive it too! I have license to drive a bus! That’s just too cool. Let’s go get it and take it on the road……..

    I may have to copy your yarn choice. I love that color. I don’t know if you can tell from my house pictures–that’s my wall color for almost the entire house.

    I saw a Peep making kit in the toy section at Wal-mart a few days ago. Near the Easy Bake ovens and other “cookware”.

    I sent you the Peeps version of Romeo + Juliet website, didn’t I? Can’t remember. I can’t eat Peeps, but I gotta say that the Peeps Fun Bus sounds way more fun than the Wienermobile.
    Sending gauge thoughts your way.
    (reading the discussion of the pattern on Yahoo is kinda weirding me out, too.)

    I used to see the Oscar Meyer bus all the time when I lived in the Boston area.
    Are you one of thos sadistic types who puts peeps in the microwave?

    Super Eggplant (I almost wrote Egghead! haha!) hits the road in a Peeps bus! That would be the Ultimate Knitbloggers Road Trip if there ever was one! Go for it, you crazy peepin’ chick! Love the look of Maya . . . llama is sooooooooo soft. Here’s an idea ~ make a Peeps offering to the goddesses of knit gauge. I’ll keep my peeps crossed for you!

    Mariko, you may have my lifetime supply of Peeps. Do you really love eating them, or is it the IDEA of them?? 😉
    I hereby send Good Gauge Karma to Super Eggplant.

    Boohoo! I’m on a Mac so I’ll have to wait until I get to work on Monday to see the peeps bus bmp. There are peeps for all seasons now, but I still favor the bunnies at Easter.

    Great color selection.
