Too much cartoons for me.
Okay, where to begin? I guess I'll begin with the finish. As in, I finished the Jaywalkers! I know I said that I was going to put them away, but I decided finishing them would be just as easy, being so close and all. If (when) they don't fit Jamie she can just give them to her younger sister, or something. Whatever. I just need to remember that when I go to make the pedicure socks. Maybe I can just ask her to measure her feet, she knows about the Jaywalkers I'm making.
Next up on the agenda, my Niddy Noddy!! Well, it's not a real Niddy Noddy. It's the one my dad made for me. He does fun stuff like that. It may not be very pretty (being made out of PVC piping and all) but I'm sure if I slap some paint on it or something it'd look just fine. And one way or the other, it sure works! I meant to take some pictures of it in use, but totally forgot. However, I took a picture of the teal/orange yarn that I had dyed after I used my brand new toy to put it in a new hank. Heather is convinced it's a pogo stick, and likes to blow into the tubes when it's not assembled. Oh yeah, that's right, it can be disassembled for transportation purposes. Which is pretty neat. Ya never know, I might wanna take it somewhere with me. Maryland...maybe vacation. As if we'd ever go on one. lol I can't wait to make some self-striping sock yarn! It'll look so awesome.
Hmm...what does that bring me to? I don't know. The top for my mom is coming along, it's almost time to start the shaping for the armholes. Hopefully I get it done soon, I've got a million other projects to get done by the end of October. RENFEST! YAY! I'm so excited about it. No more baby in the belly, lots of crafting, acting like silly, crazy people, and just loads of glorious ren-fun! Since I'm basking in my nostalgia and what not, here is me last year at MD Ren-fest. My dad made the wings expandable (and also out of PVC piping), they were a big hit. Though extremely uncomfortable. They also made going in and out of shops difficult. Had to watch the wingspan. This time around I'm a pixie whose wings are too small to fly, just to avoid that situation. My color theme is turquoise and brown.
Oh yeah, here is that yarn that I used the Niddy for. Isn't it lover-ly? Justin said it made him think of the Miami Dolphins. >.< I had to whack him upside the head with my pretty new skein. lol
