oh, I forgot to add, the look I was really trying to go for is the Chyler Leigh hairstyle in the last 2 eps of Grey’s. mine’s pretty close in shape and theory, but my hair is a leeeeeetle less thick than Chyler’s.


#602

:heart: ahh, Crocs. I finally experienced Crocs 2 weekends ago and now own 2 pairs. :heart:


#603

and the Crocs give me excuses to knit more socks. :eyes:

hope all y’alls had a good Memorial Day weekend. I was lazy, stayed home and knitted and slept a lot. Dyl and CV cleaned up the patio, and we hung out there Monday afternoon.

I decided I want KP Options DPNs in the smallest sizes, and the Chart Keeper, and Options circs in 0, 1, 2, and 3 16". funny how that works :rollseyes:, every time the catalog arrives in the mail I’m reminded I’ve been meaning to order stuff :roflhard: .


#604

whoa, Options sizes 1 and 2 are avaialble in different mm widths…

a bit down this morning. no particular reason. just blah. :thinking: :sad:


#605

:waving: Hi, Jodi! I can’t believe I’ve never stopped by your blog before. :oops: Hope you’re feeling better!


#606

:heart: thanks hunterjenn. I have a lot on my plate right now, and am trying hard to work through it a bit at a time.


#607

Jodi - I bet that hairstyle looks good! you’ll have to let me know as I have very thick hair and would be afraid of the layers…

Hope you are feeling better!


#608

hi Lisa :heart: the cut works well for me. my top bobbed section isn’t as neat as Chyler’s in the pic, but the general shape is the same.

I feel a bit better, but I really need some sleep and some time to regroup.

[quote="ContiKnitter"I got this interview in my e-mail, and thought I would share my answers.

hmmm. KPPPM for its clean luminescence, Kureyon for its colors like no other, Karaoke for its glowing color transitions, STR SW LW for it’s colorful cushiness.

[B]5. Favorite pattern?[/B]
the We Call Them Pirates hat got me over my fear of Fair Isle, and

#612

yay :woohoo:I just ordered the Chart Keeper, Options in sizes 0, 1, and 2 16", and DPNs in 0, 1, 2, and 3. :slight_smile:


#613

Tag you’re it:happydance:


#614

oooh! sorry sweetie, I did it a couple of pages back. :aww:

my LYS carried Lexie Barnes bags. I bought a small Sweetpea and a Gem today.
now I want a Duchess and a Darling… :drool:


#615

CV broke his left ankle while skateboarding on Sunday. does it ever end? :zombie:
I guess things could be a lot worse. I need to keep reminding myself.


#616

ok, everything I look at in Kureyon makes me :drool:.
redheadrachel’s Fake Isle Hat :heart:, a 2-colorway scarf I saw on helloyarn :heart:… and I still want to make Lizard Ridge.
rmturtle gave :heart:me 6 skeins at Christmas to start my Lizard Ridge stash. so, since I have sock yarn to keep me occupied for the next month or so, and a disturbing lack of funds, I guess I should start saving for a Kureyon order from WEBS.

I hope everyone here is doing ok. I’m scarce on here these days. life is getting in the way of my computer time and knitting time.


#617

happy 4th, everyone!

I just got a new niece last night! my cousin’s wife had a little girl named Kameryn. she joins big sis Chloe (turning 5 on Halloween). :heart:
