Here is all of the colorways. I am in love with all of them:
That's all of them, but I also made some Chicken Cacchitore for dinner and Steve loved it. I love getting to do Susie Homemaker things.

Ok, maybe not ever, but it's pretty freaking awesome! I have literally been calling on this book everyday since last week, or having Sarah call on it (that's what best friend/assistants are for right? Not to mention she's awesome and loves me!). So I got mine at Barnes and Noble because I have an awesome friend there who got them out of the boxes for me!!! And as he read the description and looked through the book he was all, "Yeah this book is perfect for you." I love, love, love this book. The writing is freaking hilarious, the patterns are great, I have a few I need to make including the snake dance thigh highs, gothic glam yule hat, immaculate heart, liza's net, apothrcary/i [skull] trouble tote, bad eggs, three owls, wheel of the year skirt and the chandeliers. I had some heads up on three of the patterns (linked above) because futuregirl is awesome and was the one who made the patterns and I read her blog every time she posts. Basically, I'm hating that I have Christmas knitting because I need to wait to make these things. Apparently Ms. V feels the same way I read her post and I was like yup, that's how I feel.

Did you know his Mom started Equality Now? How cool is that? He's totally a feminist, now he is even more swoon worthy...

So I posted on Friday about going to Corteo by Cirque du Soliel. Well, I bought some souviners. Firstly a hat, I think I'm going to wear this to Bat's Day next year, I've got a whole costume idea worked out for it.
I just seem to have this soft spot for hats of all kinds, if I could find a reason to wear them every day I would.
I also bought a CD so I could remember the weirdness:
And Sarah bought me a clown nose, a green clown nose, have you ever seen anything so awesome?
Oh and I got a lunch bag.
I really shouldn't be allowed to take my credit card with me to these things.
Ok, for some actual knitting content, I've been working on a sock:
I have no idea what the yarn is, but I like it, I bought it when I was in Germany last summer and the pattern is Broadripple from Knitty. Great pattern to take with me as it's only a 2 row repeat and I think it shows off the color of the yarn really well.

How good does that all look? It was wonderful! But I got stuck cleaning up, silly people, don't you know I could better use that time knitting?

So yesterday was a bit of a rant, sorry about that, but sometimes we just need to get things off our chests.
So I thought today I would give you some pics of my adorable cat Tinkle Biddy Kins.
On Saturday she found some yarn laying around so she felt the need to play with it of course, here she is doing just that.
And then Monday we got the carpets cleaned since my Grandma is coming to stay next week, well you have to get everything off of the carpet including the cat tree climby thing, so we put her's in the office chair. Apparently she felt the need to climb the tree thing anyway, so she did so in the chair that spins and rolls.
Ok enough of the kitty, cute as she might be. I thought I'd show you all the manicure that made my mother worry that I was going to come to work "gothed out".
My hand looks a little creepily pale there, but what can you do right? I mean what's the big deal with black nail polish anyway? I like it, though now they are a dark burgandy color.
Ok and last but not least, I put some stickers on my car last week that I got at the LA Public Library when we went to see Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. I've gotten so many comments on them, all good, I love it! Oh and I have to mention, I over heard my Mom on the phone with one of her friends praising how great my knitting is, w00t! Sorry I had a nerdy moment there!

I made the Burly-Que Hat from the Spring 07 Issue of Knitscene Magazine and I love it, and I want to make like 1500 of them so I have one to wear everyday of my life!
And here's a picture of the whole costume that I made from Simplicity 3685. I went as the Mad Hatter. I love this costume!
Gotta love Halloween! Why can't we dress up for every holiday?? I think we should start that tradition!
