Yes SiR!

Picture 240

I finally bought D-rings for my Felted Military belt, from Michael's book, Knitting With Balls. I used a small ball of leftover Noro in color #51. I had to shorten it considerably. The pattern said to knit 64" and it would felt to 46", my waist is around half of that so I knit about 46" and it felted to a 34. I just secured the end with a Ben & Jerry's pin that has an ice cream cone on it. Pretty sweet, eh?

(It's incredibly difficult to take a good picture of your own waist.)

I bought some Shrinky-Dinks this week and made some pretty dope earrings. I made the yellow roses first and then I was thinking abot that song. You know the one. So, naturally yellow rose of texas leads to revolvers somehow. Anyway.... I made these:

(I'm amazing.)

I've been working on my OBS sock most of the day today and it's almost finished. I have some laundry and dishes to do, and then maybe I'll finish it up.

Hi! I wandered over from PRK.

Speaking as a bona fide Texan, all us yellow roses are packing heat. So the guns are definitely apropos.

Hell, we're just packing heat all over the south. Great earrings!
