Still totally stressed. But we'll worry about that later.
I have a picture of the Interweave Knits mag that I ordered. And the Blue Sky Cotton, as well as the Cascade I bought for making a fulled belt (or 2). Not sure if I'll squeeze that in here or put it on an old post. Eh, I'll just toss it on here. I can link you to the other pics that I want you to see. Just to save space. I hate cramming a ton of pics on here.
The BIG news? Justin made me an office space!! Look! Isn't it lovely? Yes, it's just starting and I need to break it in (I've been working on that today, I need a space heater!), but it makes me too happy. This was his anniversary gift to me. Guess he figured he had to pull out all of the stops to make up for losing him to WoW. hehe But I love it! Here, go take another look or two. The garage is kinda cold. But, well, I love it anyway. He just kinda laughed and said "It was cheaper than a spinning wheel." I believe that.
Of course, I finished my bamboo socks, wove in the ends and all! Normally, I like ankle socks to ride low, below the ankle bone if possible. Get that sexy ankle in there. lol But I wanted to use up all of the yarn, or as much as possible. So the ended up with about a 1.5" cuff. Which is still ankle-sock length. Right? Right.
Who is this?! Actually, I don't know her name. Since Kyran calls all cats "Meow" that is her temporary monicker. I like it. She's such a pretty little thing too. Mostly she's hiding behind the Christmas tree or under Heather's bed. Heather scares her a little, and Kyran scares her a LOT. It's sad though. I wanted to pet her and get her to pose with my yarn. Wouldn't she look lover-ly surrounded by yarn? lol How awful is that to say? Shhh, let's not talk about it.
I'm going to have to update my list of "Things I want to Knit" after getting that Interweave Knits. *sigh* I want a lace shawl sooooo badly I can taste it. Wait, no, I don't think taste is the right word. Oh well. Anyway. I'm thinking of doing some sort of lace wrap or something to turn into a top for a RenFaire costume. Mali and I were out shopping and discussing possible costume ideas for next year. She's going to go to the NC renfest the first weekend of April...but I might want to save my money for MDS&W. Gah. Why are all of my hobbies expensive?
I swear there was something else I wanted to update on. Who knows. I don't. Here, have random sock picture.
