15 hours and counting

Today I celebrate the last day of my twenties. Not the greatest decade and not the worst. Hopefully in my thirties i'll grow up ( a little). Any advice? any funny stories to share?

a few weeks ago I was shopping and came across the green shirt. Yep, that is the year I was born in. Wore it all day today, I even wore makeup to work. I think I scared a few people.

Well, tomorrow is the event, maybe i'll have pictures

dirty shet

I finally got the shetland triangle done. I dont know, but mine seems a bit tiny. no, i didn't take time to swatch, i know, bad girl. Its cute though. It will still be a gift but they have to use it as a head scarf or give it to some kid to play dress up. I dont have the exact measurements since my tape went missing. After this weekend's clean up, maybe i'll find it.
now that i see the looks really cute.

Inspired by dirty snow

This is turning out to be one of those "I never thought I would make one" project. The snow out side had inspired me to dig out some of my knitting/ crocheting books. As i skimmed through them, my eyes wondered over to Wrap Style. The Shetland Triangle called out to me. I tried to start it once but it looked wrong, so I never went back to it. This time around it worked out beautifully, well sort of. After doing two repeats of the body, I got distracted and knit one set of repeats on the wrong side and somewhere I missed a row... had to rip the WHOLE sucker out. But I hope this time it works out. I just finished the third body repeat and making sure I am on the correct row/side. It may be hard to tell from the picture, but the color is cream (hence the dirty snow). I will eventually be a gift, I dont know who, but someone. Also, when its done, would someone mind blocking it for me since I have no pins or wires?????

Its about time.....

that i took a picture of my mini tree. Its only 2 feet tall but it still brings that holiday spirit into the room. I just love the blue ornaments against the red of the tree. Also included is a nice shot of my chest.

Snow, Snow, snow

Well, i was finally able to get the camera and took a few pictures of the winter wonderland that is the outside. The pictures of the trees aren't as great as they would have been the first day the snow came but you can see what has become of them. Also, if you have forgotten, there are 20 days til my birthday.....plenty of shopping days.

22 days to go

December has finally come around. I love this time of year....why? Its the month I was born in, on the 23 day to be exact. This year is a bit different. I turn the big three O, yep, 30 years. Big plans? Not sure but I'm sure some vodka will be drunk.

Sorry for the lack of pictures but the camera is not on hand. I wish I could have taken a few pictures of the world outside my warm house. The whole city is covered in a snow/ice mix. The icy trees look beautiful but dangerous. I also have started and finished a few projects that I need to show off. Also, for 2007, I decided to ignore the whole resolutions things, since they always gets broken the next, and just to make a list of projects to work on. I have about 8 projects that I hope to finish in 2007. I know that is a few compared to some craftoholics out there, but I just don't know what else to do. If you have any suggestions for a project, just email or leave a comment. I knit, crochet, loom, and known to do a little sewing. Also, I am a slowwww knitter....keep that in mind.
