I Wish it Was Raining
Oh wait, it is! lol Sorry, been glued to my Start Static CD lately. I randomly woke up with one of the songs in my head a couple days ago and popped it in. I get in these moods and will listen to the same CD for weeks. Sick, isn't it?
Anyways, I have lots of pictures for you! Where should I begin? Um...let's see, how about what's in progress? The Harley Quinn socks are coming along nicely. This is what I've decided to call them, after the Joker's lil assistant/girlfriend in the animated series that I watched when I was growing up. Even though it is really starting to remind of an ice cream cone. The pattern I'm using on the top of the sock makes it look like a waffle cone. lol
The yarn for my swap sock came in today!! Hooray! As did another surprise. I'd tell you what but, that would ruin it. Actually, I took a picture to give you a clue, but it came out all fuzzy, and I don't feel like taking anymore. lol Nice, aren't I? Except, it feels kinda like a small gift. Part of me wants to send yarn along with it, but I can't afford that right now. *sigh* Which is depressing because I really wanted to grab a spot in Mama-E's Project Spectrum Sock Club, except the price is comparable to a week of tuition for Heather!! Bleh. Oh well. I'll make due.
My mommy also sent me pics of her modelling the socks, AND an overdue pic of my brother's Knucks. Yeah, the ones I gave him for his birthday. In October. hehe Anyways, I'm pimping him out on my blog. Click the pic to see a close up of the knucks themselves. I'm still mad at him though. We'll talk about it later.
For now, I'm adding this to my list of things I want to do. For March or April. Hm. Maybe in a pale yellow? Yeah, that'd be freaking gorgeous. That way I can make an excuse to work yellow into my wardrobe, and my Project Spectrum list. Plus, using KP will save me tons of money. Besides, there is way more yardage. I would only need like 2 or 3 skeins, and the leftover can be used to make a lacy scarf or something. That'd be...like $12. Not bad I think. AND if I use the Alpaca Cloud as desired, it will qualify for the Alpaca along too. Which is up by the way. Then I'll have three projects for the Alpaca along. :)
Speaking of lace, did I mention that I have decided to buy some from the LYS and dye that? I'm hoping to acheive something similar to that Lorna's Laces I wanted. That would be lovely. Also, planning some fun little ProjSpec things. June and July are gonna be FUN!
Oh, you might notice I organized my to do list. Obviously, I was bored MAJOR yesterday. Since it was Monday in night crew land. Didn't I tell you? Night crew lives in an alternate dimension where Sunday is Monday. On the plus side, that means Thursday is Friday! WOOT!
