It's beginning to feel a bit more Christmas-y here in J-Vegas. Which, by the way, belies the glamour of this city. Anyway, back on track, it probably is due largely to me starting my Christmas cards and preparing my presents for you good folks in blogland! That's right, the goods are in and they have been wrapped and await labelling and mailing. I will say this though, as I am not taking pictures of the yarns and posting them (seems a bit redundant huh?), the colors in the pictures are not quite accurate. The Mystical Creations Yarns are a little bit more dull in real life (bummer btw), and the Handspun and Dyed too...are even more delicious. The Magie is a glorious blend of pink, fuschia, brown, and beige. Seriously, I admit to having a momentary pang of selfishness...then I heard my mother's voice in the back of my head reminding me that I have too many projects (and yarn) going on right now. So I need to lay off and purge a bit. This should build up some good karma, if not it'll at least make me feel good. All I ask is that if you get something from me, post a picture on your blog! :)
Further karma boost? I finished a hat for Caps to the Capital! It's adorable, however, I am convinced, utterly certain that this hat will not fit any living human. Except, I must doubt myself at least a little, because I never ripped the hat back and cast on more stitches. The information made a point that newborns in other countries have low birthweights and are, therefore, smaller than we are accustomed to. Still, I'm going to make a slightly larger cap with the leftover yarn. As there was plenty yarn for two caps. Maybe I'll even make some more stylish/cuter hats. Nothing with lace, as it is too open.
Now for a little self-indulgence. hehe For my birthday I:
got my hair done.
went shopping with my mom.
went to dinner.
got an awesome hoodie with kitty ears and paw-like mittens!
went to dinner/breakfast with Tyler.
had a huge fight with Justin.
had a huge make-up with Justin. lol
My mother spent a LOT of money on me. Seriously...I got something from every store we went into. Of course, I picked up a few things for friends. But I'm not showing you what I got. Some of those things are x-rated. ;) My Christmas shopping is done for now, at least as far as I'm concerned. And guess what I saw while I was out shopping? That's right, this is the window display at American Eagle (not a store I actually shop in), and yes those are balls of yarn hanging from the tree! That made my day.
So does this.
