and then frogged it...
1. ALWAYS do a gauge swatch.
2. Just because you're really thin, doesn't mean you should just go for the smaller size.
3. Everyone in BloGLanD is telling the truth, Jaywalkers are really that tight.
I've been sort of busy, and it seems like not as many folks are reading my blog. Maybe if I write really trashy stuff about celebrities, or post pictures of political figures in scandalous positions more people will stop by??? Suggestions? anyone?

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
I was a freshman in high school. I watched romeo & juliet almost everyday, listened to Bush and Marylin Manson, painted my fingernails to look edgy, tap danced, stayed up late to watch sanford and son, never washed my hair, and made sandwiches to fund my adidas problem. I had it all figured out then.
2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today?
I took a picture of my actual to-do list for the day:
3) Snacks I enjoy:
-Crackers! any type really.
-Nuts (cashews are my faves)
-Cheese, the lil' round ones dipped in wax...
4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
I would buy a farm in France, put enough away to buy flour and soap and get rid of the rest. To live self sustained is worth all the money in the world.
5) Places I have lived:
Oh god, lets start at the begining:
-Northern New Jersey
-New York City
6) Jobs I have had:
-Stockboy @ 5-7-9

I've been having the worst trouble the past weeks with my ISP!!!! Don't worry! I haven't run away and joined a cult.... yet.
I did, however, have some time to finish and old WIP. I bought the pattern from Mochimochi land about a year ago, the yarn more than 6 months ago during that yarn crawl, and started about two months ago. I'm such a slacker sometimes.
Pattern Source: Uh-oh's @ Mochimochi Land
Needles: Fiddlesticks Size 4 Bamboo DPN's
Materials: Rowan Scottich Tweed $ p-ly, Felt, Plastic eyes with anchors, and fiberfill.
Time: way too long, not because the patterns was hard or complex, just because I'm lazy.
loved: how god damned cute they are.
hated: you'll see, if you buy the pattern (i don't want to give away the secret).
I've started some Jaywalkers (about 4 times!) and keep missing an important part of the math in the pattern. I'm going to go look on Ravelry and see if I can figure out what I'm doing wrong. I keep ending up with missing stitches.
It's been a billion degrees in my house all week, the air breaks every year. DH says it's a rite of spring. I can barely function in the heat, let alone sleep. I'm one of those folks who wraps themselves up in the comforter regardless of how hot it is. I just can't get comfortable without it.
I'm sort of procrastinating, Tuesday is cleaning day and I haven't even finished half of the to-do list. I guess I should go vacuum...
