From a recent IM:

A3*: you sound so hot on the radio. people might be apt to think you’re hot in real life
Vibegrrl: sooo misleading ;-)
A3: lol
A3: cuz like you’re all flirty on the radio
A3: but then a guy comes over
A3: and all you want to do is knit

LOL! I was munching on snacks at the time, and I came *this* close to spitting them out all over the keyboard when he wrote that!

Lest you should think I don’t knit anymore, here is my new sock:

MINI RINGEL! How I love theee!

Hayley** loves the mini-ringel too!!!

Possibly little *too* much!!!

Besides the knitting, there has also been the purchasing of yarn:

Rowan All-Seasons Cotton!

For those of you keeping track, I am NOT breaking my yarn diet. While I am not allowed to buy any yarn until Rhinebeck, I *am* allowed to buy yarn for two specific baby projects!!! WOO! NEW BABIES!!!

Besides, I got that yarn at 20% off!!!

Now, you might be wondering how and WHY I got such a sweet deal…


Yes, you read that right. I am the newest employee of KNIT HAPPENS!!!. I will be working there Tuesdays and Thursdays part time, so if you’re in the area, stop on by!!!! (well, stop on by anyway, no matter what day it is…it’s a great shop!)

In other Lara news, Sunday is my BIRTHDAY!



Not doing much for it though, just going out to dinner with a couple friends. OH! BUT! SPEAKING OF BIRTHDAY! CHELSEA got me the BESTEST KNITTY BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER! Like, EVER! The *one* knitty thing I reallyreallyreallyreally wanted, and she GOT IT FOR ME! She just *knew*!!!! I will post pics of it next week :)

In the meantime, you have yourself a swell weekend, k?

* So that he doesn’t get on my ass about copyright infringement, the GENIUS behind that IM exchange is this guy

** Hayley pics by request for Jeffrey. Wouldn’t want him to get all jealous and think I love my new friend Allen more than I love HIS ass…

ps- go visit this guy. He leaves funny comments :)

    Happy Birthday! I’m so jealous of the yarn shop job! Have fun with that and try not to spend your entire paycheck on yarn! :-)

  8. Kate Says:

    Would it count against the yarn diet if they can take it out of your pay, wouldn’t it feel like free yarn that way? Happy B-Day… party on.

  9. Erika Says:

    And working at a yarn store? Oh man…how kick ass is that?!

  15. michelle Says:

    Happy Belated Birthday and Congratulations on the new job!!

  16. Anne Marie Says:

    Wow! Happy birthday! And congrats on the new job…it’s going to be like an alcoholic working at a bar (or visiting my house). Be careful grasshopper. Resist buying everything in the store. Fondle, but don’t buy. Why buy the alpaca if you can get the yarn for free? Or something like that.

    PS You are WAY cuter than your voice even.
    PPS And DUMBER if you are 29 and knit when boys come over! I knit because boys don’t come over!

  17. Lauren Says:
