Recent Obsessions

I got my Ravelry invite this morning! It was very exciting: I've already added many projects and as much yarn as I could before my camera's battery died and I got tired of taking pictures. It's definitely as much fun as I heard it was-- hats off to frecklegirl and her husband for taking on such a project.
I bought a few books the other day:

Knitting Lingerie Style is such a beautiful book and with many patterns I love and cannot wait to knit. I ordered some elann Esprit last night so I can make the basic bra and panty set(Orchid Pink) and the thigh-high stockings(Chamois). Very excited!


I've been eying this book for a while. What drew me to it initially was the French Twist part, but Simple Sewing with a French Twist has many simple projects that I think even I could make.


Last, but most certainly not least, is Amy Sedaris' new book I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence. It is amazing. I was reading it yesterday in the same room as Hunter and I kept bursting out laughing. He thought I was a little crazy, but I never said I wasn't. She makes me want to throw amazing parties and be just the quirky woman that I am. Love it... it's been my night-time reading for the past two days!

Also, I've been anxious to make nona's sidewinder socks, but I didn't have the right size circulars. I ordered a few of KnitPick's classic circulars so that I can knit them as soon as the needles arrive. They will be arriving with a couple more books, ones I've also been lusting after for quite a while.

Until next time, I will be wasting hours upon hours of my life, and possibly losing real-life friends, while I play with Ravelry!

Never mind what Fred Phelps sez, Heaven's where I'm going. Wanna come along? Guhroovy. Meet me in Heaven, miss gorgeous, and we'll have gobbbs of fun at my BIG-ol, WooHoo! party-hardy celebrating our resurrection for eons and eons - I'm gonna kiss your adorable feet the first chance I get, doll, because they have brought you this far (with God's help). God bless you. Love you.
