ok, some things in my life are just plain wierd. and i mean WIERD.
I've been working with my friends on designing new cards to go with a game we like to play. Only thing is, since i am the one sketching and creating the damn things, shouldn't i at least have a say in what it says? i mean damn!
on top of that it seems to be that my word means s*** (yeah, i bleeped out my own curse LOL) to everyone. but whatever. it could be a combo of things making me feel that way.
on the knitting front...
I totally learned how to do a provisional cast on. toe up socks are now a piece of cake... that is until i hit the heal. In the mean time i am using a thin yarn (but not a sock yarn) to make a small bag. hey its a start
I have been trying to clean my room a bit and i have been winding yarn into pull balls for easier organization. yep, me and organized, it don't work, but i keep trying and trying.
I should have tried at the BEGINNING OF THE SUMMER, and not wait until 2 weeks before school starts...
got knitting stuff plus others (which will be later on in the entry) for my birthday.
size 2 bamboo circular 35in knitting needle, 3 balls of a sock yarn that i was admiring, 4 size 6 dpns that are the length of regular needles. (ok they are these "chinese dpns" that were being sold in this japanese outlet store that my friend frequents. she was telling me and others about them and we expressed interest, they were sold out when we checked them out, so i don't know HOW she got these, but AWESOME)
i also got a knitting book - The New Knitting Stitch Library, Lesley Stanfield. its all charts and i don't know how to read them yet, but i'm learning LOL
Now: non knitting gifts
A pocketbook, a calculator pen, and saftey pins (ok, those are knitting) w/o the coils so they don't snag the work.
An Anime music CD. i'm new to listening to the stuff, but its sounds nice :)
A DnD campaign book that i was too cheap to buy for myself LOL.
a game for my Xbox
and oh yeah AN Xbox! a group of my friends chipped in to get me it and the game and the extra controllers. 2 of my friends put in alot of money, more then i would have ever expected. what i didn't get it how they did it RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
talk about different groups acting differently
its an interesting situation... but i'm starting to realize my life is odd
not complaining though
