knitting frenzy pt 2

i finished three pairs of bittens in the last couple days.. two are here. the missing pair is black, so i thought it would be self-explanitory.

i also made this for someone to keep all his ipod headphones in:

host update

well, i guess they’re attempting to resolve this issue.. until that happens though, i have to check my email through a yahoo account. which totally sucks. my host said they’re being removed from the list and its “users” will be able to get emails in up to 48 hours but that doesn’t mean tds will update their list in that time. so i could be using yahoo for like 6 months or something lame like that. dumb. i’m gunna go watch the drama on tnt.


so my (or my host’s) domain has been blacklisted and i can’t receive emails because tds uses this list. wtf.


yesterday, the ferrets surprised me with their cuteness by sleeping behind the door:

i knew it

the weekend went too fast, and today is crawling at a snail’s pace.
speaking of snails, kurt and i are making escargot to bring over to mom’s next saturday. i have to come up with something for me cuz they’re making ribs and kurt’s bringing a tiny chicken. i think i’ll make bruchetta (thanks to cousin beth who brought some delicious bruchetta to the extended family holidays!). or i’ll use suzanne’s anchovy/caper/tomato recipe.
the freidel gals enjoyed all the gifts that i got from work on friday. i even had enough goml dolls to give one to 2nd cousin arianna (that was the first time i’d met her, she’s almost one).
i’ve covered my desktop clock with a post-it note in the hopes that the afternoon will just breeze on by. we’ll see.

knitting frenzy

these are the bittens for kelly. she wears them at work cuz it’s freezing after lunch. this is the correct usage. :)

i also finished kathy’s hat yesterday. it took less than 2 hours.

i finished judy’s bittens, but of course, forgot to get a pic of them.

random musings

i miss the friday five. it gave me an excuse to not have to come up with something. so i’ll steal one from almost a year ago and see how/if my answers have changed.
1. List your five favorite beverages.
coffee, water, sprite, vodka+seltzer, bloody m.
2. List your five favorite websites. zefrank, orisinal, i read boingboing and metafiltereach day. i can’t think of a fifth.
3. List your five favorite snack foods.
yogurt, gardetto’s, pistachios, edamame, granola bar.
4. List your five favorite board and/or card games.

5. List your five favorite computer and/or game system games. the sims is the only one i play.

more bittens

just short a thumb (and weaving in the ends) for judy’s pair. after that, it’s a hat. i’m sure that’ll take less time, but i never seem to get the size right on hats. in a week i’ll still be sleeping.


only a little over a week until i’m home free. i have a looong list of things to knit. and it keeps getting longer. i need my netflix and yarn and couch. and that’s it.
