i do. i don't know why. so i think from here on out i will stop doing them.
i worked on my page friday, trying to make it more interactive but haven't uploaded the final changes yet. work has been busy and that keeps me from doing 'me' stuff unfortunately. i have a huge lack of motivation to do anything for work. call me lazy, but having just spent 5 weeks training the crazy texans who are taking my job, i have a small amount of bitterness!
but onto more interesting things, like knitting. i finished a small project this weekend. this cute little hat
i can't remember what yarn i used. it was in the baby section and acrylic. i made the same hat last week in a white and light blue cotton stripe. it was cute too, but silly me forgot to take pictures.
i went to a yarn store this weekend and walked out with nothing. NOTHING. that is amazing. they even had tons of great manos yarn and colorway 95 of the kureyon that i love. but i resisted. of course the next day i lost my ability to resist and bought these
an adorable pair of shoes by the company Medium. i love them, didn't need them, but love them. they are in my favorite color combination right now, pale blue and brown. my friend and i also went into a cute shop
in ballard that had a ton of hand knit items for sale (ponchos, wraps and scarves). they were expensive (around $100). but very beautiful. there was also a gal sitting outside on the sidewalk making wrist warmers and selling them.
sometimes i am amazed at how popular knitting has become. my mom pulled out an article in one of her magazines that had some knitting patterns in it. i saw at least 4 women knitting in different places around the city this weekend. it is great. and even more exciting i see that a new knitting and tea shop opening within 2 miles of my place, i am so excited! i know i will be trying to get a group of some sort going there.
