'evening all,

Things are moving along too quickly. Barely 5 days before the madness begins! (which reminds me, I need to print the tickets off). I need to start consider what I'm packing & how it'll fit into my bag and FINDING NEW JEANS! I hate the fashion universe atm. Is it really to much to ask for dark blue/black jeans that fit? A nice dress? Shoes? Really? Wisely I'm not engaging in the wardrobe clean up until after Mardi Gras. Too busy until that weekend is over. Ah, the insanity! I shall be exhausted, thankfully not broke as everything's paid, sore footed but extremely happy. This also warrants hair dyeing, which is great as the skunk strip could take over a small Asian country and i'm getting a little fed up of telling jokers that it takes time and effort to dye it in.

Work is... work. New training, new training to write up and the damn system being buggy as hell. Plenty of chocolate cake & today, dark chocolate and peanut 'spiders' (essentially, noodles dipped in the afore mentioned mix). I remember buying them at Fetes as a child and they are still damn tasty... too tasty in fact, as I ate three of them. Luckily, they were teaspoon sized. Yay! for being able to wear a warm hoodie at work again. Pity it's not going to last long.

Found my next knitting project! It's one I've been wanting to do for a while - Matryoshka (you know, those Russian stacking dolls) as fingerless mitts with a seperate mitt top. I've decided that instead of 5 'sisters' I'm just going to knit them onto the back of the mitt flap. Also deciding to change the colours - no yellow except for the hair and a lack of red which clashes with my hair means I have to choose between: purple, deep pink,  cerulean or bright grass green. They'll go with the black, white, fuchsia and yellow yarns already being used. Thankfully i've discarded an earlier idea to further modify the design and knit dresses onto the glove bodys (so they look like REAL dolls).Decisions, decisions. Still are searching for nice tops to knit using my cotton & cotton blends. I should be getting the Stitch'n'bitch books to read next week to! I love reserving items!

Well, I should go. Have have mitts to knit and a lovely book on cooking with various Japanese green tea's to peruse.
Stay well, rest well and party well,

1) someone please hook this sister up with the Bob as Batman fic. i've heard tell of.
2) any sound colour thoughts, let me know. The cuff is pink/black. Also, the link: Thankyou Knitty!
3) back update - feeling much better, still a bit of aching & no painkillers needed today. Definitly an improvement.
4) why has Dusty Springfield been singing in my head all day? Not that I mind, I just need a break from 'anyone had a heart'.

Greetings all,

Only 1 week of work to go!! Yes, I am looking forward to Chirstmas and with luck, all my Christmas goodie grabbing will be done on time and go down well. Have just completed K.O.'s fetching wristlets & I have way to many knitting plans for my current wool stash & are constantly resisting the temptation to go out and purchase scads of expensive but lushlushlush yarn. My next project? I'm caught between more wristlets for K.O., a fish beanie for Danno (almost 5 yo cousin in Switzerland), a fancy-schmanzy versatile shawl or some kind of jumper/vest. Decisions, decisions.

I had a visitor at work today - my favourite lesbian from council (who I've been told may have very well been hitting on me). I accuse her of being dorkier than me - she was bouncing when she saw me (granted, I was doing the same as I invariably do when sighting a friend) and she had a toy dog strapped to her helmet. The latest pet is Pedro? & I've seen photos. Only 10 of them. Just the dog. Pet chats. No motorbikes this time, though the pushie outside was a pretty clear indicator that she hasn't purchased one yet.

Ooh- what other animal should match with a penguin? The wristlets for K.O. will have a penguin on one but I don't know what for the other? can't be a monkey because that's going on her birthday Tabi. Argh, Christmas is too soon this year. If anyone could lend me their time machine for, say, about a week, i'd be vary greatful.

'Fetching' can be round here:
The 'Fish Hat' can be found here:
~ Yes, I love Knitty.

Besides that, I'm a little annoyed by: the general public, therapists who aren't there when you finally get the guts to call for an appointment, boys, cute people I can't hit on and being jealous/depressed/out-of-it & jerk-like around my friends. I've been... messy. It's not so good.

Off to plan my next knitting adventure and get in some drumming practice (I'm doing well for someone without a kit to practice on daily),

~ mish

PS - Snugglehugs to all. Have been in a snuggly mood for the past few days with no real opportunities to act out my impulse, so you'll all have to suffer instead. *tacklesnugglehugs*
