Accidental Felting and More

TheAnticraft Update:

Shannon, I love the purse, it freaking rocks. Any chance you can make me a stencil for the ankh shape? Just trace over it so people can print it out? It's really cool, but it might just be a bit more than the average person can do on their own.
Let me know,
P.S. Thanks so much for being the only person to take decent pictures! You can't believe the kind we've been getting, yours were so nice to see comparatively.

See, that is how much I rock.

When I was babysitting the other night, I was washing all my clothes
and when I was putting it all in the dryer, I saw one of my I cords in
the wash. (It was there because I am not smart enough to keep them
together. I probably have around 5 to 10 extra that are floating
around the house. )
It was just like it used to be except one of the tips was felted. I
was excited. Then I decided while my clothes were drying, that I
can experiment with how much the I cords will felt. I think around 10
inches dissapear(it's 1 am and either way I spell it, it doesn't look
right). Which was less than I was giving it leeway to. Now, I just
have to finish all my I cords.

It made me happy to felt for the first time. I had to share.

Knitting Olympics 2006

Oh, yes, I am pumped. *growls*
I am in the Knitting Olympics.
I am going to knit Bad Juju out of that yucky purple yarn. I'm going to start swatching tomorrow. Luckly, I have at least 3 needles for the project which are easy to get: Michael's. I am set. Yay.

Hair falls

I now have 29 hairfalls. No. Mark that. I have 30, I think. I've been aiming at 50 but I might need more. I'll look at average hair fall quantities.

Update on it All!

Let's see:
I have new semester classes! I am now taking Independent Nutrition, Independent Spanish 3, French 3(Yes, I totally bypassed French 2 to be taking French 3), AP English, Apparal Managment. Yes, I am taking a class that gives me an excuse to knit. Be jealous of me. My final project will be either knitted or be out of duck tape. I can't decide. Who knows? I might turn around and sew something.

Lookie, lookie at my duck tape coffin!

I made it just for Zabet for It's out of duck tape. She saw the picture on the myspace and thought it was awesome. She hadn't checked the submissions email account cause she didn't even know about it yesterday. I told her I submitted it and without looking at the directions, she accepted it then and there. I'm going to be in the Imbolc issue when I had expected the Beltane issue. Go me.

I've been an I-cording fiend. I have 24 done. Yes, that doesn't even equal to a freakin' month. I've been working on it for more than 24 days. ERGH. It is looking good when they are all in a bunch. *sniff, sniff* My babies are gonna look like that one website I can't find. I need to make...26 more I-cords! I'll be doing this till....March. At that point, I can dye my hair.

I am trying to think of more duck tape things for Zabet. No inspiration. *frowns* I might do my living essay in duck tape. Duck tape is rad. That is all I got to say. Tomorrow, I have to cure a country ham.

Happy New Year!

I didn't knit much this week. I watched alot of movies, slept and read. I slept alot. I cooked for David all week. Yay. David's grandma got me some pjs(no comment) and David got me some awesome books.

Today, we opened what was left of our Christmas. I got my umbrella swift(of course the robbers wouldn't grab any of my wool of the andes or homespun!) and a fondue pot. My mom also got me a pampered chef gift certificate. I wish it was more than $20. Grr. My head hurts. David is asleep and I find myself bored.
