since thursday

I went to Carol's (the previous owner and beginner of the Knitting Corner a local Knit shop)memorial service at 1 o'clock. It was a lovely service. She had donated her body to science so there was no viewing of the body just fond memories and lots of support. Her sister Susan runs the store now and had been handling it for Carol while Carol was unable to toward the end of her life. So that is nice. Carol was a very sweet lady she'll be missed. RIP

I ran into Bobby and Linda from my work in the parking lot and missed seeing Melissa a lurker from my SnB group (we have a yahoo bit so we have members who don't come regularlly but keep up with whats happening by sticking with us online). So I was sad not to see Melissa...I wish she could come to the Monday nights more... and it was nice to chat with Linda and Bobby since I haven't worked the past two weeks and won't be working next week. Sigh I miss the yarn store.
Which is probubly why I have visited it like two or three times this week. Once on wensday (picked up my pay check and was just letting everyone know how things were going, noticed we had a stereo system installed), then on thursday (stopped in to buy two $10 gift certificates and my mom bought a set of denise knitting needles and some powder blue plush yarn that she is in love with).

I started the garter belt project with the Phildar yarn I had to go up a size in needles to get the gauge but it looks good. I also ran into a dumb mistake on
Since I woke up so excited to continue knitting on the garters I had started the day before I started knitting before I was fully awake (don't recommend doing it) and ended up doing a stitch wrong in two places and not catching it till about ten rows later. No big deal right I rip it out to the point of the mistake and am fixing away only due to the nature of the stitch which creates these loops that need to be lined up above the other loop stitches that had come before it I was having some major difficulties. So after messing with that for... a good long while I decided it was stoopid of me to do this since I could re-knit it with little to no effort since I hadn't gotten that far into it and it'd only set me back a day. So frogged the whole thing and started over after I embrodiered the baby onsie for my god baby. (pictures posted)I really enjoied the embrodering. I am totally taking that up and selling stuff I've embrodiered. I have some ideas and things. anywhoo... another post for another day.
Mikie came down on Friday. I <3 mikie. He's my best friend who lives in Richmond and so he came down to chill with me and stayed til this evening but he's coming back tomorrow after he gets off work (which is why he ran back up to Richmond).
So I took mikie to Sonic's for the new mint blast malt shake and some fires. which was uber good. Mikie had never been to sonic. I love sonic the whole drive in concept and the food is just awesome.. I will gladly eat a bacon cheese burger, large fries, regular cheese coney dog, cherry limade and small pineapple shake and not even blink an eye. In fact I did earlier this week before mikie came. Yum Yum.
That was my third visit to Sonics in a week. Mikie and I just vegged and shared x-mas presents. I loved everything he got me (some lip gloss from bath and body that is super fly, some tea (I <3 tea), a book (Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris), and some starbucks green tea breath mints (I <3 those jibber jams too) all in all a perfect gift because it came with love. I got hime a new colone set of his favorite colone since last time I was in Richmond I saw he was getting low (mostly cause I always put some on when I visit it smells good and I figure its just coture to wear men's colone you like if you like it) so yuppers.

Then Saturday or today.
Mikie and I woke up super early for a set of people wo haven't seen each other since November first (we stayed up and watched the power puff girls x-mas special and crashed). Anywhoo. we woke up at 6 in the AM. yes I know so horribly early (not). And we just chillin, munched some cereal and what not tried to figure out what we wanted to do today. So we went to relative theory (a record store in Norfolk) and then were gonna eat at Cora's (an awesome restraunt in Norfolk) but when we got to Cora's they were having a private party till 2:30 and as it was one we decided to go to the starbucks down the road and get something to wake us up a bit more since we we're knid of in slow motion due to the lack of sleepies. So we get some drink (the peppermint hot choclate is really good it made me want to go home and grind up peppermints and put the peppermint powder into asome hot chocalte mix and shake it up... which I may just do some time) and chatted for a bit till it was close enough to walk back to Cora's. Ya well Cora's let me down today. Apprently they close everyday at 2:30 and open agian at 5 so we we're like... uh no we're hungry so we went to panera's down the street. Still good but not Cora's I geuss we'll go monday or something when Mikie gets back cause Cora's is super good.
Then Mikie and I came back to my house and he left and Amber came to get me to help her felt her sisters bag and to just chill. So we went to micheals and then her house. the felting turned out great I think (it was both of our first time felting something on purpose). I'll post pics or links to pics as soon as she takes some. Then we knit and watched the Pink Panther movie till 11.
At micheal's I bought some yarn (its pink and mac-fluffly, very soft) I'm going to use it to make a hat similar to the one in the Stitch and Bitch nation book (the little bunny one) for my friend's daughter, Tess, she's three. I also go some fabric glitter spray for a jean project i'm jammin on makin.
{quick explanation--> I went to Target with my mom and was walking past the little girls section which I always glance at because its got cute stuff and I'm a tiny person and can sometime's still fit in it to the dismay of many adults and children alike who can not or think I should grow up. Anywhoo. they had these jeans (i am to tall for the pants unless their at limited2)that had this glittery sheen to them that wasn't over powering but cute and would totally pass for acceptable in an adult ansomble(sp). and as I was looking the little light came on (Ding) and said I can make those jibber-jams. So now I'm going to make them which is what the fabric paint glitter spray is for just need to figure out what jeans I wanna use.}
I also got some little cute-see canvas bags that are the perfect size to hold a girls wallet, handie (cellular), and small necessaties (i.e. lip gloss and the occasional feminine products). they came in a 4 pack with one color of each (blue, yellow, pink, and purple).I'm going to embroader them and give them away or sell them. I'll post pictures when their done.
Oh ya. To explain the X-mas light pictures. Amber and I checked out this street on the way back to my house and had to take pics. There is another house that is just as crazy as these jibber jams with its lights that I need to take some pictures of. But these were good. I love the golf ball mail box in the first one. hehe you can only see it as a silo-et (I can;t spell and I'm being lazy). Welp. Till I have more to report.
Over and out.
