i promised i’d do those striped stockings in debbie stoller’s stitch n bitch book.. but they’re just going to take forEVER.


busy knitting.. long 3×3 ribbed scarf. it’s almost done, but i can’t decide if it should have fringe or not. (img tag missing)

mmm, friday

in all its glory and splendor.
1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
i don’t mind grocery shopping. i’m not fond of trying on clothes, but i always seem to end up at marshall’s looking for new pants while retaining at least 5 lbs of water.
2. What was the last thing you purchased?
a yarn ball winder
3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?
online. i prefer to do everything online. ‘cept the previously mentioned clothes shopping. i don’t feel comfortable buying clothes online, considering my return rate.
4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?
i don’t remember getting an allowance. sometimes i’d get money for good grades. i had a paper route from age 13-16 so that kept me financed pretty well.
5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
i believe i don’t have an answer to that.

so much

for sleeping in on a day off. i was up and at ’em at 7:15. even after going to bed at 11:30. oh well, more knitting time. :) oh! happy turkey day.

frantically looking

for a barbie knit hits fashion maker. you’d think since i sort of work for the big pink sister, that i could find one somewhere. but i can’t. they were manufactured in 1998 and if they had any in a warehouse somewhere, i wouldn’t be able to convince anyone that they needed to dig one up for me. i got outbid on four different eBay auctions.. i can’t bring myself to spend more than $25 (hold shipping) on one since i don’t know how much they went for originally.

while searching

for madison’s best falafel, i tried to find the phone number for the mysterious “falafel king” restaurant on university (in the old sukho thai building), i came across a falafel game. funny.

giving, and thanks

kurt and i just decided that, short of smallish family gifts, we’re going to make a donation to st. vinny’s for the holidays. we just watched the news and svdp and the salvation army are low on their food pantry supplies. we encourage you to do the same.


i keep window shopping online for yarns but really, really don’t need any more. i have enough yarn for the items on my to do list. just thought i’d share.
