Need Some Sugar

So I'm bored at work, although I've only been here an hour! If you happen to be as bored as I am, but are lucky enough NOT to be at work, you should come stop by the store!!! Pink Sugar I would love to sell ya something! Better yet you should come get a massage from me this afternoon at Optimum Wellness Centre, because I'm that cool! Wow talk about self promoting...I should stop before this whole message becomes about me and my current jobs...oh wait it already is...

As for the knitting part of my life, I've been neglecting everything. I still need to find a few more things for my package, and I haven't even picked up my needles in 2 weeks. I haven't been this busy in a very long time. I guess I haven't had much of a social life in awhile, I was a little bit of a hermit! Needless to say, hopefully I'll get back on track next week, take my knitting to work! Keep me entertained so I'm not super bored all day!

Jezzeblog


So I was reading about peoples wishes from their Secret Knitting Pals today, and one girl had said she was looking for a pattern of a Katamari Damacy Amigurumi pattern. This totally spawned me to go on a google-fest and although I did not find a knit pattern I didn't find a bunch of crocheted ones. I also found a bunch of amazing little crocheted dolls too, I think I may need to teach myself how to crochet now, as I would love to create stuffies all day long!

BUT this is not the reason I post! I found an AMAZING blog all the way from South Africa.
Jezzeblog This girl has created the CUTEST little dolls, which she also sells, and was super enough to create a pattern and share it for FREE!!!! THEY ARE SO CUTE!!!! I want to make 8 billion of them, and have them all over my room! I created a link to the pattern under links! She has also created SO many other things that I think are fabulous! I can't wait to go buy some yarn for these guys and start knitting...that is after I finish my socks...and the thing i bought from the yarn store on Saturday...looks like I'm actually going to be knitting a lot again. Well it's about time!

For My Pal

I went shopping for my Secret Knitting Pal on Saturday and couldn't believe how much stuff I got for only 20$. It was really smart to save shopping till Make One's big yarn sale! I also spent way to much money on myself, considering I'm pretty much broke haha! I just need to add some personal touches to the package and I'll be off to the post office to send her off! I can't wait to send it, but even more so I can't wait to get mine in the mail!!!!! I'd take a picture of what I bought, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for my Pal! I did however get a new case for all my little gadgets as the other one I had broke and now spills everywhere! This one is SO nice, I'll take a picture of it for sure, but the yarn and such will have to remain a mystery for another 6 months, and so will the project I decided to start, because I kind of ties in with what I bought my Pal!

I'm at work right now, and it's rediculously boring...I have a client in an hour, but all I can think about is eating...I'd be mad that he's invading my lunch hour, but this will help with the bills ahah!

Well I'm off to put my sheets in the dryer! I'm impressed 2 posts within a week! Hopefully I'll keep this up!

Forget Me Not

Well, I've already forgotten about my blog, and it's only been a month! I guess I haven't been knitting so that might be why.
I got to the toe of my socks and got rediculously confused, so I gave up temporarily, until I return to knit night at Make One and get a little help. I was going to take pictures of all my UFO's, but somehow they look wierd in picture form so I figured I'd wait until I finally finish them!
There's a sale at Make One tomorrow, so I think I'm going to go buy some stuff for my Secret Knitting Pal. I don't want her to feel like I've forgotten about her! Just been low on cash, and time. Hopefully I'll find some unique things there, and I'll send my package on it's way!
I think I might also knit that elephant pattern I have listed. I have some blue and white yarn that I think would work well, and it'll give me a break from my socks, but keep me moving forward. Then I think I'll give it to Monkey, Paul's kitty, as a little toy, maybe I can even throw in a little cat nip! That cat is a riot, I'm sure she'd love it!
