How about a post without any photos? Not on purpose because I am such a visual person, but because both of my digital cameras are out if service just now. But I have been knitting! My SKP is almost done, and I'm almost finished w/a sock that is taking me forever to complete...and I've been BUYING too. I was out of control yesterday. I bought two skeins of Socks that Rock online:
I've also been buying baby stuff.
I love to say that, because then people think I'm expecting, and I think that is too funny because how could I possibly sustain another individual when I have yarn to buy? My very best friend is pregnant and last week we found out it's a girl..**sigh** a little girl...I bought some Debbie Bliss Wool Cotton to make the Pea Pod baby sweater that everyone seems to be making, and this book:
With the famous Sheepy dress I've been wanting to knit since seeing Kathy's (hey Kathy, when are you planning to come back??)
Doesn't it just make you say, Awwww...
I keep telling myself this baby stuff is a just a phase. The little outfits are so cute. Just a few months ago I was telling someone I do not knit baby things, and now look at me. Pitiful.
My birthday was October 6th, you know. I'm 26! This year wasn't so bad. Last year I had a quarter life crisis--Oh no, I'm 25..and what am I doing w/my life??--Ahh! This year was much calmer. Seth and I went to Chicago and visited my folks and some friends...had a wonderful steak at the Weber Grill Restaurant. It was actually a really nice trip. I usually digress to being 15 years old when we visit my parents, but this trip was actually really nice. I've said that twice now, haven't I? Hmm..
At my grandparents house, I came across a scrapbook I made when I was in 4th grade. I was a pretty crafty kid back in those days. Inside I had written myself a letter, that was sealed in an envelope with a disclaimer that read "DO NOT OPEN TILL 2006" Eerie, huh? I opened it and it was so cute...the dreams and aspirations of a 9 year old. At 9, I was pretty vague about the kind of job I would have, but I was certain whatever I did, would be located in downtown Chicago, I'd wear high heel shoes and carry a briefcase, and I would live in a loft in the Loop. Shoes, accessories and prime real estate were important to me even then.
In other news, for Thanksgiving this year, Seth and I are going to Las Vegas with my parents. It's official. If you know me, you know I plan to go lots of places all over the world and usually end up in suburbs of St. Paul, but the plane tickets are BOUGHT. The hotel is PAID FOR, and I have enough vacation time to actually go. So that means I need to knit one more quick sweater and pair of socks especially for this trip. I'll post pics of what I'm thinking when my camera is back up.
