I want this!

Mom, dad, shelly...anyone who has cause to buy me an unfortunately expensive present for any reason.

I'm in love with these shoes.

Very pratical. They are interchangeable and therefore go with EVERYTHING!

Why can't the world just be good and people just be nice and accept everyone? Guess, I won't shop there anymore.

February Stash Busting

Well, The February stash busting was...a bust. I did use up some old yarn. I made the entire front of Mark's sweater, which used up one large skein of Red Heart. I knit my first pair of socks in the round with two almost full balls of wool-ease. Mark put them on right away so there are no photos to post. But...I fell victim to a yarn purchase. What it was is a secret because it's special for someone, but of course I also fell victim to some yummy alpaca for myself to save on the shipping. So, I figured out yardage wise, February had an exact net exchange of zero, no gain on busting the stash, but I'm still ahead for the year :)

Oh yea, I managed to write and submit a 20 page paper that will become part of my dissertation, lest you all think that I'm so yarn obsessed I've been avoiding my real life! For fun I made a master document today. Cover to bibliography I'm up to 63 pages. Not too shoddy. Sadly, percentage wise, I'm only ~30% of the way there....

Oh yea, I'm with Krista, why did Jesus show up down the street in a piece of sheet metal?
