It's all about Me.
So I have finally! decided that it was time to knit something for me. And now I am innundated with ideas. The Market Squares bag from Bags, a Knitter's Dozen--- and good news I have enough Kureyon in my stash to do it w/out spending $$$. Which is good because the crocheted corset in the new Vogue Knitting sent me on a tear looking for knitted corsets and I found Annie Modesitt's Corset Tank Top which is absolutely gorgeous. And will wonders never cease but the largest size will fit me so I can do it; yay! I'm happy. I also love the cap sleeve pattern by Nicky Epstein which is on the page facing the crochet corset in VK.
I have to tell you, my top favorite 3 published designers are Nicky Epstien (she is just playful, I think) Debbie Bliss because she is classic and I learned to knit on several of her books, and Adrienne Vitadini just cuz. :)
I was bad. Two weeks ago I bough a bunch of sock yarn and some lilac yarn (can't remember the type) at Wildfiber. I just ordered some Artyarns Regal silk from kpixie.com along with a mix of lilac and baby colors. :) The Artyarns is for *ahem* yet another bag. Either "Three For The Road" or "SoHo Sling" from the same books as the market squares bag.
Anyhow, I have wasted enough of today avoiding work so I should leave. First I drove to my sister's to drop of creamer and pick up analgesics, came home to relax. Then I went out again with my sister, returned the rollerblades, bought some headbands, went to a salon and got a manicure/pedicure and waxed my eyebrows, followed that with a visit to Payless and bought a pair of sandals with leather like butter, and finished up with a somewhat dismal meal @ Black Angus. I say somewhat dismal because the potato skins were apparently inedible to me, there was nothing appetizing on the kid's menu for me, the food they had was just... blah, so I ended up with a bowl of potato soup which is incorrectly named--- it should be named ONION and potato soup. So I ordered a Kaluha Colada and that was tasty but really I only had about five sips. My sister felt guilty but I had fun eating her croutons. ;)
I honestly feel about as girly and sex-in-the-city woman of the millenium that I ever will; a visit to a salon, shoe shopping (although to be truthful I was after the free purse) and a lunch with girly drinks.
