Wips and FO's

First a WIP:



Here is my Tilted Duster from the Fall 07 Interweave Knits. It is in Malabrigo which I really am loving way to much.


As of Wednesday night I have to pick up for the collar and sew in the sleeves, as soon as I finish two more sets of repeats.







Now for a FO: I completed my Monkey Socks a few Days ago for the Monkey Sock Exchange, I am waiting to hear where in the world they shall go.
Snoopy of course was Kind enough to pose .
Have you joined Ravelry? Do I have you as a friend? I hope to see you soon on there

Etsy

I have occasionally popped over to Etsy.com to me-ander through pages of yarns and all things neato. Then I began a Quest for Orange and Blue Sock yarn. and I slow became obsessed.

Every person I have bought from has been super nice! THe transactions are as quick as could me ( with the excpetion of Paypal, that part takes a bit it feels)

SO head on over to www.Etsy.com and see what's going on.

I prewarn you to set a budget for yourself or you might have to skip a few lunches due to all niftiness over there.

Here are my favorite sellers so far:

www.grannyscloset.etsy.com ( I got some awesome Pirate knitting needle cases. LOVE IT)
www.starbugknits.etsy.com <>
www.saltrundesigns.etsy.com (Found some Kick Arse Gator Earrings, GO FLorida Gators, plus a local artist)
www.fibersnthreads.etsy.com ( more hand dyed yarns! Yummy!)
www.NatureOfAll.etsy.com ( Fabulous pictures for sale here! )

Tata for now! .

well well well

lets see if this video works!

videoI was curious if this video would load or not. If it does, this is Snoopy my dog, making his bed for the first time this evening. I eventually had to stop filming because I knew he would jsut keep at it for a while.

Hope everyone enjoys!

** SIDE NOTE**

I now need to figure out lighting on my new camera. and my apologies to all for the messiness of my room. and sorry if this is a boring video. Everyone must start somewhere !!

Pirate Day

Yes, yes it finally came. and like all things I build up in my mind, it was not the best of days.

It started getting nutty when people from an AA people kept popping in my office asking where the bathroom was, I am not a tour guide. Then there we stupid parents and of course the moment when my boss called me fat. But I digress
Back to Pirates.


The UPS Man gota big kick when I oped the door and started talking in Pirate Speak, to which he responded in like kind. Some of the parents thought it was funny, all the kids loved it.


and of course to Snoopy, it's always Pirate Day!
I am super excited to be casting on for some new socks. On Friday is the first day of Fall/Autumn? Harvesty Time. I will be casting on for some new Socks on dpns.
That's all I have tonight. In the land of rain, Snoopy and I are still waiting for my camera, and the ribbing for my Tilted Duster is taking for-ev-er!

OK, I check on Friday at 1:50pm ish and I was 911 in line? I cant remember the exact number. But it is now 1:10am in Kimber Time, and I am officially 162 in the wait list.

Dang Ravelry, I can't wait to list all my yarns.


OH WAIT, that's going to take a lot of time.


On another note,

I am missing the following items, if you see them please snag them and hold onto them for me:

2 blockbuster.com movies

1 Fall issue of Interweave Knits ( with my name on it)

1 bill requesting money for a truck payment


since I would like to exchange those movies for the latest Greys Anatomy discs so that I might enjoy them while I read my Interweave knits and try to finish my Tilted Duster ( pics to come I promise ) all after mailing in my truck payment, I need to find this stuff NOW!!!

So look out, the thieving gnomes are back and they are after more then socks and under-roos!



Ohhh, and I am so rockin the FLORIDA GATOR SOCK I am making using my new found skill of Magic Loop.

Smart Boy




I have a wonderfully smart dog. There I said it. I double dog dare you to say he or any beagle is dumb. He knows what love is ( ty Forest Gump for that line). He doesn't have small and beady eyes, or look like a little troll.

Just thought I would share.
