The edible gold, the seeing eye patch, the pirates booty(yummy), THE YARN, the beads, the noise makers and everything was AMAZING!!!! I especially loved the Playmobile guy. I love playmobile and have quite a bit of it from when I was little. I am definatly going to have to go get all the pirate stuff now. Thank you.

I jumped in to the ocean of crochet today. I started the Yeehaw Lady cowboy hat. I am using berrocco suede, one skein of the bone color and one of the glittry tan. It's looking pretty good so far. i need to find some stitch markers before I can continue so I put it down for the evening.

I sewed up the side sems of Alicia and realized to my horror that I had put the neck decreases for the front panels on the wrong side so I am going to have to rip those back about 6 rows, no biggie.

I think I'm going to cut some more panels for my band sirt quilt tomorrow.

Welp I'm off to beddie bye.

I finished the sleeve for Alicia and plan on finishing it all up tomorrow. YAY!
I realised in glassblowing while working on Justin's sweatervest that it is going to be to large so I need to rip it out. Meh!
I really want to make the cowboy hat in Happy Hooker. hmmm...

Tee hee

All must view this wonder that is called entertainment. apache boy
yoinked from Red Lipstick. So amazing!
The weather which was so perfect last week after I got back from Boston has been very chilly this week. I have to say I am not a fan of teaser weather. I get all excited and then its cold. Its ok in the end since its been helping me focus on my school work. I have been so bad this semester. I think its because I am so close to being done and I am looking forward to the next step in my education in Tennessee. I am really excited about being able to work with fibers all the time.

I am almost finished with the last sleeve on Alicia. Then I can sew it all up and put on the neck collar. Then I can wear it and be all warm and snuggly. YES!

I have been compliling things to mail to my booty swap partner. I hope she likes them I hope to mail it out this weekend to make sure it gets out in time.

I have been asked to judge a children's art show. I am very honored and excited about this expericance. I hope I do a good job.

I'm back from Boston. had a wonderful time visiting friends and checking out a new city. There was a really nice yarn shop call Woolcot and co. in Cambridge. I highly recommend it to anyone in the area of Harvard Square.

I finished Nathan's grandmothers scarf. I hope she really likes it. Other than that I got the new stitch and Bitch: happy hooker and I've been working on a few projects here and there in between classes and homework.

I geuss thats all that I have time for right now. Check ya'll later.

I must be seriously addicted to yarn. I mean who in their right mind chooses knitting over sleep? Or decides that since they are heading some where cold it's the perfect time to finish a sweater so they can wear it when the get up there? haha I geuss it would be me.

Alicia the sweater is coming along well. I am a bit tired so I have to rip out what I started of the right panel today since I caught that I was off by a row in my increases which bothers me and since it knits so quickly I would feel ashamed if I weren't to go back and correct this minor of minor mistakes. I am fairly confindant that I wll have it finished in time for Boston though or at least to the point where I am sewing in the zipper.

Especially since I was wrong about it being Knitapolluza weekend. Its not until next month. Thank goodness. I was about to collapse from exhaustion. I think I am going to crash into bed now and finish my sweater tomorrow.

I am getting a hair cut tomorrow as well. Hurrah! Oh and my friend Ryan called from Tulsa. He's had a bad week and was looking for someone to cheer him up I was so flattered that he'd call me long distance and everything.

I am uber excited about going to Boston sunday. eeee! ok nite
So I finished the left front panel of the Alicia Cradigan. YAY! that was just knitting during glassblowing which is a three hour class and I only knit for part of it (namely the parts when I am not blowing glass or watching the teacher give a demo). Exciting! yes I know. Also exciting is I just sold one of my glass cupcakes. Joy and I designed these cupcakes as an idea on her birthday. I love the design and have become obsessed with making them.

Any whoodles. I really need to get on the ball and take photo's of my FO's. I have like four now and I haven't posted any except Jesse's scarf and thats a rather ambigious shot. Anywhoodles. I best get to bed or work on homework since its getting so late.

I can't wait til I go to Tennesse and can play with fabrics all the time. I am sure there will be a day in the not so distant future when I will rue the day I said that but I am really excited about the Appalachian craft center's program. I think this is going to be an amazing experiance. I am just waiting for my acceptance letter. Oh I do hope it comes I don't know why it wouldn't I have good grades and what not. Hmm not going to dwell on it.

I started Justin's vest. So far so good. I couldn't find a pattern I liked or that was just what he wanted so I am writing my own. We'll see how well that does over. I'll post it when I'm done.

Nathan needed his camera back so I have none for which to use to post the bike bag. I am very saddened by this I am so wanting to share it with the world.

I decided to hold off on my fanatic knitting of justin's vest for a moment and finish Alicia the cardigan made with Rowan big wool in a cranberry color. I have the back already finished and would like to have the front and sleeves finished by the time I have to go to Boston so I can wear it. YES! we'll see though. Man I love rowan so much. I wish I could fill a pool with it and jump in like scroooge the duck does with his money. Oh it would be glorious. ***Yarn Fantasy**drools***

*pop* back to reality. my goals for the next week are to finish,

Alicia the cardigan
Justin's vest
Nathan's Grandmothers scarf

Once these have been completed I'll figure out what I want to do next. Oh the limitless possibilities. By the way the new Mag knits issue is out. I like the Twister scarf. Very niffty.

Well I am off to complete my errands for the day. Toodles.
