TO STAY WARM!!!
right now on this lovely sunny mid-day it is 42 degrees here, but feels like 35 degrees...according to weather.com (especially with that whippin' wind whistlin outside my window !)...for us here in the south that is cold! Haha! :oD
So I've been peepin out my favorite place (tar.jay) and all of their latest "knit/crochet" items to keep folks warmThose are definitely cute! But will they really keep me warm? Ha!
And y'all know I got a thang for fingerless gloves and spotted these hanging aroundI swear it almost looks like someone hand knitted them!! *pfft* Acrylic! I need 100% wool on my hands for warmth please!
This time of the year always makes me wonder if it is just easier, cheaper, and much faster just to buy this stuff straight off the racks......and the answer typically is yes for me!
Unless you want something unique...one of a kind...just for you! Then it's all worth it baby!!I had not forgotten (okay...almost tee hee) that this is the season for NOROvember!!!!!
I cranked those puppies out pretty quickly (2 at a time of course!) and will do it F.O. justice soon, as I plan to knit up another pair for me this time!
Love those colors!! And I am not even a pink gurl! I believe the chocolate and black help influence me! ;o)
Figured since I am jazzin' things up around my way with colors and all I would try black on my fingernails too! ;op Very different for me as I normally stick to light colors or french. Me likey! I received more compliments about my nails the last 2 days then I ever have before! Haha!
And what I am holding is my newest perfume scent that I finally settled on (it takes me forever to commit to a smell on my body) Diamonds by Armani...I luv Armani and the men scent version of this is even better!! Gotta get me a man of mine (A.S.A.P.) to wear that so I can smell it all the time on him ;op
Back to the regular scheduled blog post! Haha!
Since there is 9 more days left in the month and some holiday vacay time thrown in there too, I am hoping I can crank out a few more NORO projects since I have the yarn/patterns all lined up and waiting for me...we will see
Have a wonderful weekend!!
And if I don't speak to you in time for the big Turkey Day then enjoy!
