What the?

Where the heck is my blogroll? I know it’s been a while, but since when did WordPress take the blogroll off of the sidebar? Grr… anyone know how to get it back?

Nevemind… got it back. 🙂

Crack in a skein

So I bought some crack the other day… of course it came in the form of yarn. 🙂


That would be Noro sock yarn. *pauses to sigh* It’s so pretty I can’t wait to use it.

The purple mix is Kureyon.

And the green/blue/grey mix is Silk Garden.

I’ve been coveting this yarn since it first came out on the market but every time I was faced with it in a shop I either couldn’t decide on what color I wanted or I’d tell myself that I already had too much sock yarn sitting at home (which I still do but whatever…). But last week I was having a shitty week and felt like doing a little retail therapy and so I bought these online. 🙂 Ahh…

I probably won’t get to use it until I’m on vacation because frankly I have like next to NO time to knit anymore. Plus I’ve already got a pair of socks on the needles and I haven’t yet been able to talk myself into justifying another WIP. 🙂 That scarf I started in Feb… still not done. The throw that I started a month or so ago… Frogged and started over then stalled. My socks… sock one is to the heel flap but I screwed it up so I had to frog it back and I haven’t picked it up since. And then there’s this…


I can’t tell you what it is because it’s a gift. But the birthday it was for was over a week ago. So yeah. Like I said, no time to knit. But… 33 days til my vacation. 🙂 Wahoo!

In other news, I’ve discovered Christopher Moore’s books and love them. 🙂 He totally cracks me up. I finally saw Star Trek and I’m totally in love/lust with Chris Pine and his pretty eyes. 🙂 I saw Up yesterday with the monsters too and it’s so freaking cute that I can’t put into words how much I loved it. I’m also now half moved from my house into my mom’s house which will prove to be a huge money saver when I can get rid of my house. Plus living here gives me internet access again which I’ve missed horribly! 🙂

Anywho… that’s the skinny. Nothing exciting, just the same old stuff. 🙂

So it’s been a while… I’m still knitting, I just am up to my eyeballs in paperwork and stuff that I don’t get to knit or blog nearly as much as I’d like. But… I can’t complain too much since this economy is shit and I have a job.

Anywho… I still haven’t finished my fake Noro scarf. I also have a pair of socks on the needles that are currently being ignored. My latest project though is a $4.00 project. 🙂 A couple weeks ago I had a really really crappy day at work and I went to Wal Mart for some retail therapy and groceries. I came across a bin of yarn that had been discounted to one lonely dollar a skein. Yeah, it’s acrylic, but hello… one dollar! So I bought four skeins and bam… I’ve got myself a project.

Meet my first throw…


There’s still one more color missing (the last color is a natural linen sort of color), but so far I’m quite happy with the way it’s turning out. I might even go buy a regularly priced skein (or two) to add another color (or two) but I haven’t decided yet. 🙂 It’s Vanna’s Choice. *wiggles eyebrows and oohs and ahhs* hehe Yeah, I know you’re jealous. *nods*

With that said… I have paperwork to do. :op
