Summer just can't come fast enough :-(

I'm preparing for the most stressful week of my LIFE. I only have 3 more school days, which means I have to get all my finals taken and fees paid off and completely cleared for graduation. I have so much on my mind. Oy. I want summer vacation, and I want it NOW!

Good news: I'm almost done with my girlie Socks. I think I'm going to give them to a special cousin of mine, Shh! I'm making a pair for my other younger cousin, too. That's the wonder of toe-up, I don't seem to have Second Sock Syndrome when I do them toe-up, and it seems to go faster! Woo hoo!

Oh Yeah, I chopped all my hair off for summer vacation:

(Please excuse the goofy picture, LOL). I just got this sudden urge to get my hair cut, and so, I did. I'm going to dye it black, too. I'm spontaneous like that.

Man-flops and Girly Socks

Last summer, I had a pair of flip-flops that I bought from the guy's section at Old Navy, and they lasted me longer and were more comfy than any of the girl flip-flops i've ever had. And I LOVE the flops, I never wear tennis-shoes in the summer time, just flops. Anyway, they were the best flip-flops ever. And then one tragic day, my man-flops died... I was so sad :-(

So I went shopping this weekend, and got me new man-flops to break-in this summer. Hopefully they last, because I love them!

Yeah, I like shopping in the guy's section :-)

Now for the Girly socks:

Mistress Stash Enhancer contacted me, wanting to send a present to my mommy secretly, and when the package came, I got a present, too!! I love this sock yarn, it's soo cute! And I also got some awesome lip balm and cool stitch markers. Thank you!! I love it!

Gotta love Man-flops and girly socks. (Hey, that kinda rhymes!)

What's a girl to knit

With about 500 yarns of Bright Green sport-weight wool? I bought it on impulse from Jennifer's Esty Shop, and I really like it... but what do I do with it?! It's not exactly soft, and I started a felted purse out of it, with doubled strands, but then I changed my mind and ripped that off the needles. Any ideas? Anyone?
It's been HOT lately, and my new favorite knitting spot is in the backyard on the hammock with my iPod.Now if only I had something good to knit...

I'm Sad :-(

I want to get a copy of the Spring 2004 Interweave Knits because I want to make the No Sweat Pants like the ones Alison at the Blue Blog made. So cute! I WANT THEM! But everywhere I look for that copy, it is sold out! ARGH!

Today's a good day.

These are seriously the CUTEST socks ever! I love them, thank you, partner!

And I figured out my next knitting endeavor; the Bad Penny top. I'm modifying it slightly, I'll make it a bit longer, And I don't think I'll do the eyelet-design at the bottom, but other that that... I'm going to use Caron Perfect Match because it's cheap, soft, and sturdy, And I can get it at my local Michaels. Plus, tons of colors to choose from! Sweet. I'll have to wait to get my yarn, seeing as I'm broke right now.

Oh yeah!! I scored some awesome Wool from my good Buddy Jennifer! Go check out her Esty shop, she's got LOTS of cool stuff!

The FO!

Yarn: I lost the label, It is some organic Handpun Cotton from the Village Spinning and Weaving Shop in Solvang
Needles: US Size 8
Pattern: One Skein Wonder

Holy Cow is this yarn soft! It's almost to nice to be a OSW, although I really love how it turned out. I think my guage is off, because it's a tad big, but it's comfy that way, seeing as my other OSW is a tad bit tight. Can't you just see the softness?!

It has a cool texture, too. I have the need to start a new project badly, but I don't know what......

Today, I finshed an old project that has been on the needles for a while, but I'm not in prime photo-taking Mode right now, so you'll just have to wait and see what it is tomorrow!!!

But I will show you what i'm savin up my money for:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Woot! New Phone! Now, I got a pretty cool phone to begin with, but this one is a slide-y one, and it has a built in MP3 player! Sa-weet!

I was so excited about seeing the socks I made for my sock swap partners on their blogs that I almost forgot that I had socks coming my way, too! There are the awesome cool socks Isis made me! Aren't they nifty?! I think they're nifty.

I Can't get this picute to rotate the right way, but oh well.

Anyway, thank you to everyone of you nice people out there that left me a nice comment on yesterday's post!

I'm in the mood for another sock swap, anyone out there interested?

Prom was way fun, I'm pooped. I went with my boyfriend and a bunch of friends in a big group, it was really fun. First, we went to get pictures taken, then we went out to dinner, but we still had time before the dance started, so we went bowling. The the dance, it was really fun, I had a really good time.

Also, more fun news; my sock swap partner got her socks!!

It's Prom Day!

Oy, all kinds of craziness has been going yesterday and today, trying to figure out plans and where to go to dinner and getting hair and nails done before the big night. Tomorrow I will post pictures of all the good stuff, me and my date and my friends and everything. I'm just glad that we aren't getting into prom like all the cheerleaders and preppy girls at school, all they have talked about for the last 2 months was dresses and dinner and afterparties. Last week, the hot Prom topic was getting the Boobs taped , so they are all high and perky in your dress. I think not...

I just finished this really cute hat. I saw the one Isis made a couple of days ago and decided I needed a black one:

Yarn: Lionbrand Wool-ease
Needles: US Size 7 Circulars
Pattern: Official Kitty62 Hat

I REALLY want to try it on, but what do ya know, I got curlers in my hair... Oy. Anyway, I love this hat, it's so cute! I love the way it turned out, I love the Pom-poms!

Until tomorrow!

My blogs have been boring lately, because what I was knitting, I couldn't show you. My first socks swap partner got her socks a couple of days ago, and I just finished the second pair for my sock exchange. They turned out REALLY cute, I wish they where mine! They wouldn't fit my big feet, seeing as my sock swap partner, Abigail, has feet reasonably smaller than mine.

Anyway, I'm going to get back to work on my Branching Out scarf just as soon as I knit the second sock for my boyfriend. He keeps "reminding" me about it, haha. And just incase you where feeling picture-deprived, It is Self Portrait Tuesday!

I had been dyeing a Red streak in my hair for a long time, and with Prom coming up on Saturday, I decided that it was time to get back to normal, so I was going to dye it all back to my normal color, and hope for the best. Well, you can still see a difference between where it was red and just my normal color, but it's a lot less noticable. Ohh well.

I've been busy lately, trying to get all registered for College, and I think I have about 16 more school days until I graduate. Also getting Prom plans figures out and knitting socks all day has made me sleeeeepy. I think i'm gonna go to bed. Night, all!!

Socks Socks Socks

Listening To: A Note to Autumn by Matthew Winters

I finished the socks I knit for my sock swap with Lani, and put them in the mail today. Then I got another swap partner, so I'm almost done with the first sock of that pair. I'll finish it tonight during Survivor. Then, I'm off socks for a while to get back to my Branching Out Scarf that i've been neglecting. Anyway, I can't show you picture of either or the aforementioned socks, (You know, suprise!) but once the socks get to their owner, you can check them out.

Sad post, I know, but I have nothing to show you! Sorry!

That's the Sock yarn that I bought yesterday. I was in a hurry and I knew I wanted a skein of Claudia's to make footies with, so I grabbed this color. They had a very limited selection. I'm not Crazy about it. Mom pointed out, howver, that they match my nasty old Chuck Taylor's perfectly:
Yeah, they are old, and I have pretty new ones, but I love these puppies. They are mega-comfy. You can't tell from the picture, but they are fallin apart soo bad. The whole sole of my right shoe is slowing ripping away from the rest of my shoe, haha. So, I'm not throwing them away until the rubber falls off all the way or my toes start popping out or something. And that big hole on the side? Hello! Thats so you can see my handknit socks! Duh!
