Yarn and Eyeshadow

0305110210-00I haven't given up on the picture-a-day thing. But don't really have a picture for the next "day". Lately I've been on a baby knitting spree. Maybe you noticed. It's that time of year. Everyone is either getting married or having babies. Thankfully, I am neither. To those of you who are, CONGRATS!!! Now I have reasons to knit small, adorable projects. For some reason, the most recent project I began, I chose to do stripes. Three different colors (all stash again!). On size 9 needles, this knits up fast. However, there are millions of ends to weave in and it is slowly becoming frustrating. Here is the pattern. Not very thorough, actually I think the entire reason I wanted to knit this was the adorable baby wearing the sweater. The other project I have going on right now is Dirty Deer hat for Beau. Colorwork...yay. My stranding sucks. It just does. Especially over large areas where I have to trap the yarn. This all leaves me yearning for something simple to knit. Pogona is done now, it's gorgeous! Such a beautiful and simple pattern. Maybe I'll do that Boneyard shawl.


School is going well, if you were curious. I really should get a small camera to take pictures for my portfolio. Anyways, I wanted to integrate some makeup stuff. While at Wal-mart making frivolous purchases, I picked up some lime green nail polish. The color was super exciting, after applying all I did was show off my nails. Being at school, everyone was very patronizing. It was so spectacular that it inspired an entire makeup look. Though I had to go out and hunt down a good matching eye shadow color. Well worth it. There were many compliments on this particular look. My client that day (who had to stare at me for 5-6 hours while I did her perm) absolutely loved it. Even though she said she didn't usually like solid color shadows. wasn't. Here is the look, and the polish. Wish I'd gotten a pic of them together.

Kitty's Story

Vintage 008

First, I must confess my name isn't Kitty, or anything even close. It just comes from an affinity for cats. Second, I love to craft, create, and imagine. I can draw a bit, knit a lot, and sew just enough to get by. My world revolves around the loves of my life; my three children. Anything more you want to know about me is on Ravelry or check me out on FB!
