FINALLY!

Sunday, July 25th, 2004

I DID IT! I installed the damn blog!

After feelin’ the pressure from Sondra, I finally decided to put up the damn blog! The thing is, I really wanted to wait until I designed something preeeeetttty for it. Actually, I still may do that, and just not show you the blog until it’s pretty, but as of right now, Sunday, July 25th, 2004 at 4:39pm, I have, in fact, installed a blog on my own domain!

YAAY!

presents, new friends, and bloggy games!

Saturday, July 24th, 2004

I’m thinking I may have to drop out of blogland if I don’t pick up the pace around here! No one will read my little bloggy here if I don’t POST! (is there anyone reading?)


THIS is a SUPER sweet present that Chelsea gave me for my birthday!

It’s a little Chococat bag to carry around small knitty projects, two handmade stitch markers, a Chococat patch (in case the little bag is too small and I wanna make a BIGGER Chococat knitty bag), two balls of Gedifra Micro Chic and a cuuuuuuuuuuute kitty card!! Chelsea ROCKS :)

I will have to admit that not much knitting has gone on lately in vibeland…although this past week I DID go to the Montgomery County meetup and got to make NEW KNITTY FRIENDS!!!

YAY NEW KITTY FRIENDS!!

You can ‘meet’ them too by going here and here!

All I’ve been working on is the twin to my little socklette and making more iPod cozis. I made one in PINK for myself and now I’m going to make another as a gift. I also swatched for the bikini in Debbie Stoller’s Stitch n’ Bitch book. I’m using Cascade Fixation instead of Classic Elite Star (not down with the Boucle) and I’m going to make up my own stripey pattern I think, instead of the intarsia. The idea is to finish it before my upcoming TRIP TO MEXICO!!! aww yeah!

I’m jsut a vacationing FOOL apparently, as I just got back from a long weekend visiting the boy in Los Angeles!! OO! AND! I had a CELEBRITY SIGHTING! heh. natch. For fun, I’ll give you three clues as to who it is and let you guess!:

  • She’s pretty much a ‘D’ list celeb these days
  • She was on a popular TV show
  • She’s sooorta kiiiinda connected to Paris Hilton. sorta. indirectly.

GAMES! FUN! I’d say that the first to guess right will win a prize, but I’m not that advanced a blogger yet ;) too laaaaazy. hee.

Anyway, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

I’m making progress!

I am *very* excited to present to you…


MY FIRST SOCK!

MY VERY FIRST HAND-KNIT SOCK!! Ok, it’s really more of a sockLETTE, but whatever. I like socklettes. And YES, I see that it is a very B-O-R-I-N-G WHITE socklette, but hey! MY FIRST SOCK! AND IT FITS!!!


Didja notice that it has a short row heel? DIDJA? YAY!

Hmm. Yes, I realize that the photos are a tad blurry, and I assure you, I would never intentionally post blurry pictures to distract you from the fact that my *perfect* knitting is actually quite atrociousnever.

Unfortunately, the good in life is never without the bad…


notice something wrong here?


so sad :( BUT!


I think I may have found the culprit.

I just hope she has an extra $10 lying around to buy me new US1 Crystal Palace bamboo DPNs…. :-\

If all THAT wasn’t crazy excitement enough, I have more knitting to share with you!!!


here is THE Blanket. Not the best pic, but maybe you can see the little kitties? Some of them are facing forward with pretty blue eyes and the others are facing away with their cute little tails curled behind them.


To continue my line of FIRSTS, here is my FIRST SLEEVE EVER! It is for TASTY from R2. I would have linked to the pattern or at least the r2 site, but I’m too lazy. :)


and last but not least (should you think I’d forgotten about the zoo-along):

Here is the progress on my Debbie Bliss Bunny!!! She has 2 legs and a body! WOO!

Perhaps if you come back in a few days, I will share a little of all the birthday festivities!! To keep you wanting more, I leave you with this:

lame update.

Saturday, July 3rd, 2004

Ever since I read Chelsea’s 7-2 entry, I’ve been feeling GUILTY for not updating. I sit here, late at night, clicking away through my favorite blogs, sometimes muttering obscenties at them when they haven’t been updated and it’s SOOO HYPOCRTICAL because *I* am the WORST. BLOGGER. EVER.

I have lots of pictures of my adorable baby neice and my…uh, I mean HER birthday party, pics to show of a *FINISHED* baby blanket (yeah, you read that right), and stories to tell (like how we ‘stole’ a boat and almost had the cops called on us!!!). Have I shared any of that with you? NO!

Sorry truth is, you’ll just have to wait till my lasy ass gets around to uploading the pics to get the dirt (or well, till you SEE me, and then I’ll tell you in person :) )because as I said above, I am the WORST. BLOGGER. EVER.

Oh, well, ok…

Here’s a story for you from last weekend (kind of sad actually, at least, *I* think it’s sad. heh.)…

My boy, my best friend, and I were walking along late Saturday night, singing the Three’s Company Theme Song and generally skipping along (don’t ask) when I literally STOPPED. DEAD IN MY TRACKS.

Both of my peeps then stopped and looked at me curiously as I stood there in mild shock. After a brief pause, this is the conversation that ensued:

Me: BooBoo (again. don’t ask), is it me, or are the first four letters on that awning K – N – I – T?
Boy: No Boo, it’s not just you, that’s what it says.

At this pont, the conversation was cut short by ME running ahead at lightning speed to press my wee nose up against the glass of “The KNITting Cove,” leaving my friends standing in my dust, shaking their heads.

Why is this sad? You would have done it too? It was YARN for Christ’s sake, how else were you supposed to react, you say?

If you have to REALLY ask why that was indeed a sad display, then you my fellow fiber-obsessed friend, are in denial. ;) Perhaps we both need an intervention, yes?
