Are you sure you know what your doing?
(note the holes dad so nicely pointed out...)
What's the seccond project? Why my Clapotis :D. I found some nice verigated yarn in pastel colours. It's not fall colours, but I hope it looks nice (and hey thats just another reason to make myself a seccond one!!). If not I think I will cry untill my room is full of tears :(.
So that was my day, I hope to finish Hipster tomorrow so I can get it out of the way before school starts so i only have one project on the go. Wish me luck!

Update on kitten
Hmm, what are these? Well, I must check them out! Lets see here.......
Hmm, they don't smell too bad. Hey, they move!
Here she is with foot for scale. I am a size 8 womans.
And this one is just adorable. My old kitty loved playing with pens and pencils. Yes, she fits in great at our house.
Knitting plans. Well, kind of put on hold till I can get to the yarn store! At least I have Suzie to keep me busy. Then mom tryed to knit last night, Suzie was just amazed by the moving needles and wanted to chew on them. I don't know if she likes yarn yet, but if she does she can gladly have the acrylic while I knit with the good stuff. Not that I don't mind some acrylic, it's just I don't want her to ruin my projects and $$ spent on fancy yarn when she can get just as much enjoyment out of free stuff.
There is still a bit of birthday cake left, must go rescue it from the fridge :D.

The best birthday i could have ever asked for.
Now onto birthday loot :D.
From mom and dad, the wrap sweater I wanted, and a ballet slipper necklace! I love it, the sweater is so warm!
DS got me a great gift, both Bridget Jones movies! It's the perfect way to spend the day, curled up with a good movie and some knitting! And chocolate is nice :D.
Granny got me the coolest quilting book, and yarn money :D.
And my dear friend gave me a coaster with my name on it (and I fit the discription perfectly!), a key chain with my family crest, and a really yummy looking lolly pop!!
And finally, my cards. I love the wizard one, it's all sparkely! And of course, kitty cards!
So that was my day, I hope to go to a LYS on thursday to get my needles for hipster and yarn for clapotis. I may even pick up some yarn for a kittypi :D.
aaawwww, he is still in my lap, almost asleep!
Now, I'm off to eat some cake................

A day well spent
Does it look scared to you? Any ways, after that I left for the mall to get a little last min. addition to my friends birthday gift. So what do I find at WallMart? these cool looking packages of yarn to support breast cancer. It comes with 2 skeins of light pink Lion brand fun fur, hot pink size 10 plastic straight knitting needles, and instructions to knit a scarf. I think it's cool, and I love the pink. But I don't know what I'd actually do with it if I bought it. The only thing I could think of is to knit something with it and donate it/sell it for breast cancer funds. So if anyone is interested in any of that, check your local Walmart for those kits.
Yes, so that was my day. I have one finished sock that I have to seam the toes up so I will start the seccond one soon (maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow). So untill then, you will have to wait for another interesting sock shot.
p.s. heres another quiz result

Why I love October........
(those are my wonderful hands giving the sock a little help so it gets a better veiw)
Earlyer today the sock was enjoying the burst of sunlight we had. I'm really sad it's not going to last, but this sock is meant for the cold days that are to come, so it better get used to it.
Ah the life of a sock.......................................

Socks socks socks!!
Notice the stratigicly placed sock yarn. Yes, aren't they beautiful? Ok, from the top clockwise, we have the summer memories socks (oh I remember just how warm it was when i was knitting thse, grr), leftover yarn from them and my sisters socks, first pair of socks ever in primary colours (tee hee I feel like a little kid), fixations socks (those were so much fun to knit, I love fixation!), and at the top we have leftover primary colour sock yarn and fixation. Woot! Socks!!
I think I want to start some socks in the grayish yarn and have primary coloured heels. What do you think? I may also join Katies Sock Scrap Swap, it would be pretty cool to get some new sock yarn. but I'm so impatient and I want to knit something now!!! Oh well, off I go with some sock yarn....

My journey into the world of cosmetics
I also plan to try this by melting chocolate chips, to see if it is more of an intense chocolate flavor. And I found some Cristal Light individual juice mix packages from the summer in raspberry so I will try that to! Yummy!!
The only good thing about Michales today was that they had cute blank notecards with knitting girls on them!! Ive seen other people get them from their sp's. They have a black shadow of a girl holding some sort of knitted item. Too cute! Can't wait to use them!! -mmmmm, chocolate
