So Far, So Good.

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Well alright, so November is pretty much over.

But, SO FAR, SO GOOD!

I mean, bad things still happen – a bunch of my friends got fired, I got into a fight with one of my best friends, I got a $900 damage bill from my old apartment (thanks, CAT!) – but all in all, November’s been ALL. RIGHT.

AND! I made a new knitting friend! Her name is Natasha and she just moved to the area, so after the holiday, I totally plan on giving her a tour of the good yarn shops :) YAY!

Speaking of knitting, I’ve actually been DOING some! YES! FINALLY! (Nothing like cold weather to drag it back out of you, no?)

Last week, I spent some time on this:


The little box on top

No, I didn’t knit the box ;) I knit the hat inside the box. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures of Adam in his birthday hat :( So, until I do, you’ll just have to take my word that it looked super cute HOT on him :)

I’ve also been working on this pink bit of wonder that I dug up from the depths of forgotten knits:


it LIVES!

Yep. Rogue. Who knows if I’ll actually finish it this year, but we can all dream…

I am about 10 rows into the body and I already have the sleeves done from two years ago or whenever it was I started this thing. My only consolation is that Paula (who started with me) never finished hers either. However, I think she’s on the hood, so basically, I just suck ;)

If I get *really* bored, this is also on the needles:


I call it the ugliest sock that ever lived.

It’s knit in a color of Lorna’s Laces that I *swear* looked pretty in the hank.

{{sigh}}

Pink, turquiose and beige were just not meant to mix together that way, I suppose.

I’d show you a picture of that yellow baby beanie I was working on last time I showed you something knitty, but it really hasn’t progressed much since then. What can I say? I got bored. It doesn’t help that the intended recipient has likely outGROWN the thing already :-\

So yeah, November. Not bad. The Epic Holiday Battle Against Traffic that I am about to fight might kill the month for me, but then again, maybe not. I’ve got my iPod… it *might* turn out just. fine. Who knows. If you DO happen to see a girl running in circles and screaming on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike tomorrow night, you’ll know what happened.

Be safe and have a Happy Thanksgiving. :)

Scorpios ROCK.
