I really do try to blog at least once a week. Apparently, August was the cruelest of months for blogging this year. I had to cram three posts into the same week. To be fair, I have had some personal things going on in my life that have distracted me from posting. I have also had the drama of buying a new car, so I have been a busy woman. I am hoping for things to slow down a little, after this weekend. This weekend we are social butterflies (OK in our case more like social condors). With that in mind I am trying to eek in one more blog post I have to do it now, while I am answering the phone for work.
(Yes, Mr I have already called 4 times today already, I can put Classic Rock of the 70s volume 4 on your request list.)
My knitting has not been going well right now, I am stuck on a sock pattern that is about to beat me. I will blog about that when I either fail or succeed. So nothing worth even posting photos of at this time. Sorry I know you non knitters are dying to hear about the sock struggle. But on the knitting front, I did find (be still my big girl heart) a plus size mannequin. I found her on clearance at Jackman's. I was so excited as I marched out of the store carrying my new purchase like a kid who just got a new bike. I have yet to use it, but just owning one makes me feel all important and full of myself. After the Ao Tank I discovered that having one of these could be very handy.
(No, Ms I never want to return anything, you can't keep Twilight Breaking Dork, part 2 for another month. It needs to be returned now others are waiting for it.)
I also got seduced by my friend at Dyeabolical Yarns (http://www.etsy.com/shop/DyeabolicalYarns). She twittered about doing a special run of mini skeins. I could not stop myself from ordering the special limited edition set. When the package came in the mail, I was so tickled with the mini skeins of yarn, I must have played with them for an hour. I kept rearranging the colors and imaging all the hexipuffs I would knit with them .
(Thank you for calling...is it time to go home yet?)
Like I said busy month.
