So, lately, I have been spending most of my time thinking about what I'll do once Mr. Shad is home and all of the crazies are out of the house. This is like...a year away at best. Still, after talking to a fellow Raveller (Raveler? either way) I am really
beginning to feel excited and motivated. There is one thing that I have been dying to do, yet I couldn't because of my responsibilities to my family. Now my chance is getting closer and becoming more plausible. Oh, in case you are wondering, my dream is to become a makeup artist.
On to the crafty content! Alright, I finished the Knitter Project/Serpentine Mitts. I also finally finished spinning the Cerelia yarn. It's gorgeous. OMG it's beautiful. To be honest...I've completely lost track of what I meant to post about. I started this post about two days ago or something. Mr. Shad is due home "mid-April", which means any time in or around April. We're creeping up on his birthday, my knitversary, and St. Patty's Day. Which is one of my fav holidays. In light of the impending holiday, here is Cerelia. Tell me you don't want it.
Next up on the wheel is that stuff I got from Mouse
when I visited her. We've been
trying to come up with delightfully twisted titles for it based on the fact that the colors make it look like a My Little Pony mane. I think her best one was "My Little Pony in a Blender". *snicker* It's really rather pretty though. I've never spun from a batt before, so I asked my LYS owner for her recommendations. She said I could A) peel off wool from the side a little at a time or B) split it down the middle and then predraft it. I chose 'B' since I had wanted the colors to be more blended (would have gone to the shop and used the drum carder but really...don't have time). Had I chosen 'A' I could have navajo-plied and ended up with a nice self-striping yarn. Not sure that is what I really wanted though. Too late now. :)
And um...here have a mug shot.
That's it. I think. Oh wait, so, Brandy wanted to change her hair, she decided it
didn't match her eyebrows. Of course, I come up with the brilliant idea that she should do a dark brown with some redlights (which are red highlights duh). We decide to do it Friday after our regular Chik-Fil-A night. While at Wal-Mart debating over the different colors she admired the haircut/style of one of the girls on the front of the box
. I'm not completely sure that sentence makes sense. Just go with me. Anyways, I tell her that I don't see why she couldn't pull off that style. So...we're up til 4am doing her hair, and then she goes to the salon to get it cut today. hahaha
...Apparently I keep hitting the "save now" button instead of the one that says "publish post". lol
Here is a quick look at how Somewhat Cowl is doing:
I'm totally wearing a push-up bra in those pictures. I wish
my bosoms looked
that good. lol Also, got a really kickass wpi tool. It's from Karatstix
. She is really amazing, she made it using a couple of pictures that I gave her of my tattoos AND it was only $8 (WITH s&h!!). So, if you are a spinner, go. Now. If you're not, she also sells needle and hook gauges. Trust me, it's worth a look. I even got a little keychain square out of the deal. (It's the small thing in the picture.)
