Knitting Olyimpics

I don't know why, but I just did not feel like knitting. Sure, I finished a small projects *cough, icord, cough* but I did not live up to my set goal. Instead, I had to re-work what was a challenge to me and work around that. I tryed to finish a matching sock for my ipod to go with the icord, but things kept getting in the way. I am extremely proud to be part of such a global event, and I promise in 2010 I will be full steam ahead. The Olyimpics will be in my city, so because of that I need to give %110. So I promise, when 2010 rolls around, I will be there, with my knitting, watching some of the worlds best athelets compete, and cheering them on as I'm sure they would cheer me on with my knitting. Go Canada Go!!

Where do t-shirts go?

I am going insane. How is it possible to loose clothing in your own house?? How is it possible to loose two shirts that you last wore together, but not the third shirt you wore that day??(yes I layer). I have looked everywhere. My shirt drawr, under ware drawr, pant drawr. Laundry basket, washer and dryer, parents laundry basket, sisters laundry basket, other side of the basement (in case that cats have them??), spare dresser drawrs, closet, under bed...... i't killing me!! I just wore these shirts on sunday, then put them in my shirt drawr sunday night. I had already picked out clothing for the next day, so i never opend my drawr. Then when I look for it (the mauve cardigan) to wear to dance, it's gone! And the light pink polkadot button up? No where!! I don't get it, are there house elves stealing my clothing? It is some sick joke my mom is playing on me for not doing my laundry? What ever it is, tell it I want my shirt back!!!!

Not everyday works out the way you want it to...

But I at least managed to finish my cross stitch project for school. Looky!!

On a sad not, I am totaly computer illiterate. I was trying to convert files in itunes that I ripped from audio book cds to the right format so that when you put it on your ipod, it shows up in audio books and you can book mark it. I have not done this since the begining of the month, so of course I had trouble. To make a confusing story short, I re-named the file without looking where it was so when I try and import it as the right file type into itunes, I have lost it. I most likely will have to re -rip all 17 cd's. Help!!

Love yah!

Happy Valentines day everyone! Hope you all got showered with love and chocolate. This year the only thing I cared about where my new shoes!! I woke up to them outside my bedroom door! Yay for surprises (well, half. I did pay for them!)

Yes, goodies are nice!! Ok, now onto the knitting! I decided to change my olyimpic project, I just did not want to cast on for shimmer :(. So instead I am going to knit a team Canada hat! I had wanted to make one during christmas, but we all know that didn't happen! So I will start charting my maple leafs and casting on as soon as I find some red yarn. I am looking for some Bernat Satin in red because I have leftover white and it's nice and soft for cheap acrylic. So in the mean time.......I have been sewing! I started sewing in school and have great plans! I need to start a skirt soon, and I'm sooo excited! Only problem, the wheather over here looks like it's going to take a turn for crazyness...... it has been sunny the last week and they are predicting below zero temperatures for the rest of the week! Looks like I will be using my olympic hat before my spring skirt! Oh well, maybe if I can finish my Clapotis is sewing class (hey, it's really called textiles!) then I can wear it as a scarf!!

So, because it's Valentines day, and my cat is soo cute, here is a greeting from her to you, with a new toy I made for her!!

The crafting continues.....

So I have lots of stuff to do this week! But its all fun. The first thing I have to show you is a cute t-shirt I stenciled this morning.

I got the stencile from Stencilry. Isn't it cute? I kind of want to stencil a heart at the top, but I'm not sure yet. What do you think??

Any ways, I have a lot more on the go. I have to finish my Clapotis (I'm so glad it can also be worn as a shawl and not just a scarf, I really wanna wear it!), finish the icord sleeve for my ipod earbuds, then make a zippered clutch (inspired by one I saw in Vancouver), and finally Teen Vogue's DIY. I usually hate them, but I have liked a few. The one at the moment is to take some rope and a white tank top, tie the rope into knots, sew it around the neck of the shirt, and hook the ends on to toggle buttons. It may not sound that great...... but I'll scan a picture from the magazine later and I think you will like it. Plus, I told my friend I would make her a case for her mini, and I bought a Pocky box to do so. Mmmm, that pocky was sooo good!

Plus, I need to figure out what fabric to buy for the Sew? I Knit! craft along. I found some cute floral stuff at WalMart that matched a shirt I have, but I am still undecided. Oh, and then I have to go back to school next week! See, I am really hoping to get a lot of crafting done this week to make up for my month long break (aka, January blues!). Wish me luck!!
