Why Hello There..
Tuesday, June 12, 2007
I promised pictures and I had every intention of putting them up yesterday but my batteries in my camera died. So without further ado, pictures.

First off, here is the drop stitch scarf I was working on as a little side project. I finished it in about a day and a half. It's nice because it's light and cute enough to wear in the summer.

I also finished my mother's washcloths. You can find those under "Assorted Washcloths". They're the newest set on my flicker account. Other than that, I decided to knit something for my secret pal. Here is a sneaky peak of what she's getting.

Just a taste, in case she has figured me out. I have a cute idea of how to reveal myself. Speaking of Secret Pals. Thank you two times over for the skull stitch markers. I love everything you have given me but those take the cake. Simply because all my other stitch markers are way to big for the projects I have been working on lately.

Work has been busy and this week has been a bit of a pain. I have been having a hard time waking up in the morning. Thank God my boss is nice. She doesn't mind that I have been late the last two days. It's not like I don't make up the time or anything but still most bosses really frown on that. I have an appointment with my Financial Aid Advisor to go over the possibility of working part time and school full time. We checked into new apartments on Monday. I called all the numbers today. The cheapest was $700 dollars for a 2 Bedroom. Currently I don't want to spend that much. The other 5 were in the thousand catagory. No go for that lot, move onto the next area.

Oh! Something unrelated to knitting. I'm starting to write a bit again! -=does a dance=- I am not going to go into a lot of detail about it yet. When I continue and make it to 20 pages I'll rant about it. It's been 3 years since I have written anything. So one page is an accomplishment. -=giggle=-

I believe that's it for now.

    Nice quick project. :) Happy to hear you are writing again..I'm all for creative outlets.

    I used to write a lot too...and I did again last semester. Those don't count though...silly essays.

    I used to write a lot too, and have been thinking of doing it some more lately. I actually have a good story idea for once and have begun sort of writing it in my head.

    Yay for quick projects! I wish I had some of those but most of mine are big...and take foreeeever.

    Valerie, I did a double take at your scarf is it a silver grey to black varigated ribbon. Because if it is I made that exact scarf in drop-stitch. Very pretty.
