I had some time tonight. I just finished my first shift in the Fireworks booth, and It wasn't so bad. It did get REALLY boring, so tomorrow I'm bringing something to Knit. Hmm, what to bring. It's gotta be little and easy to put down and pick up quickly. A sock maybe?
Anyway, here's my blonde moment of the day:
Doh! I twisted the elastic at the back of my headband. Silly Kaity...

Yay for presents!!
Check out what Heather sent me!!!! She's the bestest! I love the roving she dyed for me, it's so funky! I also got some Merino/Angora pink stuff (SOO SOFT!) and a bag of Alpaca (SOFT, TOO!!). She also sent some yarn for my mommy. Thank you, Heather!!! Oh yeah, she sent the funniest card, too, haha. Okay, i'm off to spin.
PS: I don't know how often I can post this week. I'm babysitting today, then going to a beach campout tonight. Then I kinda Volunteered to help out at the Search and Rescue Fireworks booth for my dad. So, I have to sell fireworks on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 5 hours a shift! Argh, maybe i'll bring something to knit, LOL. Then I'm leaving on Saturday for the 4th of July. I'll be back on Wednesday. I'll try to sneak in a post this week, I promise!

What I've been up to.
Like them? I do!! I think they turned out way cute. I posted these on Craftster.org. You can check out my post over there for more pictures.
Blogger is being dumb, and uploading pictures is not going well, so i'll direct you to a Craftster post about a skirt I made. Click Here to see it.
I'm waiting on the Fluff I ordered from Handpaintedyarn.com still. I want to spin!!!!

Blah Blah Blah
Oh yeah, in a couple of days, the mailman is gonna bring me some Fluffy Stuff that I ordered from Handpaintedyarn.com. I ordered two "Butterflies" and one "Polar Morn" (whatever that means...). Yay, I can't wait!

Thats a lot for me. And good news, I'm not bored with it yet. I'm challenging myself to knit it straight through, no other projects interupting me. Ha, like that will happen.

The Official Start of Summer Vacation
Also yesterday, I went to the LYS and bought enough Cotton Patine to make a Mini Ponchette- thing. That up there is the start of it. The knitting is easy and goes pretty fast so far. The cotton is really soft, too!
PS: I changed up a couple things, like my background and header. I got bored, haha.

I'm getting better!
Then I practiced more and more and now I'm getting better. I can pretty much make it basically the same width and uniform looking if I try, which was my biggest problem. Here's what I just finished this morning:
I bought 8 oz of White Corridale Wool from my new local yarn shop and Kool-aid dyed half of it Grape and the other half Black Cherry. I've only spun up about 4 oz. Of it so far. There's about 52 yards. I plied it, too. The colors kinda remind me of the Circus.
Next up I think I'm going to work even harder to make it all the same width and spin up some single ply stuff. But first I need more fiber!!

YAY FOR SUMMER VACATION
So, another post from my new computer, I love it! My brother bought us a wireless router-thingie to get us wireless internet anywhere in the house. Sweet! I could post on my blog from... outside!
Wendy sent me some gorgous 100% Cashmere Sock yarn from Poshyarns.com. Isn't it pretty? My friend Jennifer sent me 4 rolls of colored duct tape! Yay! And Linda sent me a gift certificate for Barnes and Noble (get me some knitting books!). Thank You Guys, and to everyone else who sent me a Congratulations. I love you all!! You can see pictures of the ceremony on my Mom's blog. Right above the pic of my new yarn is one of my beautiful new Cedar Chest from my parents and the quilt my Grandma made me. I love it.
Sorry for the weird placement of the pictures, Blogger won't let me move them.

You Spin Me Right Round
Disneyland was really fun yesterday. We didn't have a whole lot of time, but it was still fun. Graduation practice today SUCKED, but oh well. I only have to wait until Thursday, right?

**sigh of relief**
Well, not yet, I still have Senior Week, where Monday all the seniors go to Disneyland (yay!!), then a barbeque/softball game another day, the Senior Breakfast and slideshow the next day, and Thursday is Graduation! Then i'm officially in Summer Vacation until I head to community college in Fall. Wow.
It already feels like summer around here, it was about 100 degrees this afternoon, and It will only get hotter. I love it. Me and my brother just ran throught the sprinklers, LOL. So what's a girl to do when it's blazin' hot outside? Why, stay inside and make an AWESOME new purse out of DUCT TAPE!
(Click here to make it bigger)
I got the idea off of a purse I saw that someone made on Craftster.org. I love it. Making cool things out of duct tape is my new passion. I made 2 wallets, too. I want to make more! I'm thinking about maybe selling them (?) if anyone is interested.
