Been meaning to stop thru earlier and post...but it has been a crazy and busy week!
Not like I have anything major to tell y'all.
But you know how you've got something to say and just gotta say it. :o)
Well a couple of weekends ago my wonderful car of 8 years hit a milestone!You know I had to capture that moment! She so needs an oil change and tune-up right now! LOL
And then I picked up a little toy from W.al-mart's new 'Site to Store' process. $20 bucks from the internet, free shipping directly to the store.
What?!? It's a necessary appliance for knitting!! Well if you decide to do two socks at one time it is!! Haha! Lets not talk about how long that yarn has already been divided into two balls.... ;op
Then last weekend I got a message.
It's bad when your favorite knitting shop text you to let you know they have stuff on hold for you!! YAH!!! :oD
Turtlegirl (or "gurl" to me! Haha) knew I have been wanting this book
With all the Noro yarn I buy I end up with one or two skeins left over (or all those scraps from Lizzie) and need great ideas to do something with them! This book definitely helps with that quest! Look inside:
Please excuse all the non-cropped pics in this post. I won't tell you how this entry almost didn't happen. I am having major issues with uploading pics, not to mention my memory on my laptop is operating basically at zero!!! I must get an external drive to transfer some stuff off ASAP. And then p.hotobucket wouldn't 'save' my crop version within their system....so whatever!
I also have the latest book by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee! Took a pic and all! But yeah that was one of them that would not upload...sish.
Have I mentioned how YarnHarlot herself will be right up the street from me to talk about her book on my birthday?!? YAH!!
Well while I was getting my NORO book I also got some more of this ;op
I gave Sealing Wax another try as this one appeared more red than the last batch I had (I hear Torero is the true 'valentine' red for Malabrigo) and more of my fav purple colorway Velvet Grape.
In the meantime, there has been NO KNITTING going on!!! Ugh! Yeah I was that busy this week! And basically collapsed last night at 9:00pm (which explains why I am up so early bloggin' tee hee)
However, I did swatch last week for a new project...you know trying to do the right thing and all ;o)
I really need to be over here working on other projects and not starting up a whole new one!!
However, I was a mini "SuperStar" on my fav LYS Charlotte Yarn's blog not too long ago.
Check me out HERE :oD
Well I will close out all of my random ramblings on a big note with:
3 more days until my birthday!!!!!!
