My it's been a while

Sunday, February 26, 2012

A lot has happened since the last time I blogged it seems.  To make a long story short, I seem to have amnesia. Apparently Pete and I got into a fight and I... blacked out I guess? Pete explained it to me as if I contracted a virus and sectors of my memory were erased. Luckily, it doesn't seem to have been anything too vital, other than I don't remember any of my internet friends, but I'll spare you the boring details and say; It's OK. I don't mind, and I'm perfectly fine. In fact, Pete and I have a slightly better relationship than what we had before.

Anyway, enough of that. Since my ruffle scarf I managed to knit a few more projects. I knitted up my own personal purse. I'm thinking of figuring out how I can add little pockets inside so all of my stuff isn't just thrown around at the bottom of the bag. Sometimes it would be nice to be able to just pick out my phone or my debit card, yanno? Also, I ran out of the original yarn, which really sucks. We didn't really have the money to go out to Wal*Mart and buy another skein of Acrylic yarn (yuck), so I made due with what I had.

This is where the post gets really image heavy!~ Clicky read more

I'll ruffle your face!

So a few weeks ago my new order of yarn came in. I ordered Springtime Swish Tonal yarn (Worsted weight) and it came in with spots. Many.. brown... spots... At first I thought it was only one spot and one 1/2" felted spot. Oh man was I wrong. I've kitted in approximately ten brown spots (1 likely to be visible if you really look for it.) and two felted/unspun parts of the yarn. I called it in after a few days of balling the skein and they said they'd send me a replacement so yay at least. It should be here on Monday. No idea what I'm going to make with it yet... I want to make an Impossibly Large (Impossibly Simple) Shawl, but I don't have big enough needles to do it. D; And to buy the individual tips costs ummm.. 12$? That I don't have :c So it might just lay around in my yarn box until I figure out what to do with it lol.



But~ With this ball I had made a super cute scarf I plan on trying to sell on Etsy. Since the ugly spots are all hidden in the knits (all but 1 I've noticed... but you really have to look for it to find it.) and the felted/unspun parts? I knit them in tightly and did my best to trim any "furry" spots that were poking out of the project. So, again, you shouldn't be able to spot 'em unless you dig your face into it and look for any imperfections.

I managed to survive my first portion of my charts!! I'm so proud of myself. Even though I've messed up maybe 2 or 3 rows in the project, but its so damned hard to go back and correct them I left it in.. It's okay though. It's looking pretty awesome so far!!


This is just the very first part of the cuff. C: I still have a looooooooong way to go. I think I actually might need to buy another ball of yarn to make the second sock lol. Hopefully I'll get this Vet Aid job at the animal clinic so I can buy another ball. P: I'm sure Pete's getting tired of buying me so much yarn. xD

So far, for this pattern, I haven't been able to see the true design just yet. There are just a few "holes" here and there but nothing too intricate. I'm hoping I'll see more when I start working Chart B.

My Hiya-Hiya needles are wonderful so far. I just discovered these weird little rubber things that I thought had no purpose.. Oh was I shocked! Googling them, it said that they're for screwing in the cables tight so that they don't come loose while the cables swivel. <3 It made the rest of my knitting so nice... Since it would kinda unscrew a bit and my yarn would get caught in the groove, but not anymore~ Mwahaha..

Anywhos, I'm sick (I caught Pete's cold!! :c ) and it's 2:30am.. I should try getting some sleep. :/ I have to go to the vet to take my doggy, Taz, to the vet and see why he's been puking...  And Lucifer hurt himself tonight so if he's still limping I have to call Dr. Christian and take him in afterward... sigh...

I'm so fucking happy, I can't contain it. :D I was waiting since 1pm for the mail lady to come.. it finally came in around 4pm. I was sitting at my livingroom window like a lost puppy for HOURS. Then, she finally went by our house. I threw on my heavy coat, I ran outside, and waited about 10 more minutes for her to come back around to my house.

But they're here.
And I LOVE them.

Now, to make socks. :3

Even though these damned charts confound me...

Woe is me

Sunday, January 1, 2012

This had to be the worst New Years I've had in a long while. At least, this time I got to drive away and go home instead of being stuck in the same house in my bedroom crying.

Worst of it is? Not a single person gave a damn that I left. Why is this so hurtful? Cause 5-6 people from my FAMILY saw me take a cup that had at least 4 shots mixed in. Not only that, but my husband and my best friend had the same amount in their cups. Pete (my husband) said he barely took a sip, but I have never EVER allowed us to drink and drive. This was the only exception, I wanted to go home.

So, to start as to why my night was terrible, I'll tell you what happened.

There was this stray cat outside, cutest and most loveable motherfucker I've seen in those woods for a while. He was more than likely an abandoned cat, cause he wanted to go inside my mom's house really badly. Not to mention he was starving and it looks like he was healthy at one point in time but he started losing weight (I could feel his hip bones pretty good though his winter coat).. I was petting him for a good while, had to catch him after he made his way inside again, played with him some more, got my drink, played some more.. Well, when I was finally ready to go inside and eat, my best friend was acting like a child. He didn't want to come inside and mingle because my dad was supposedly giving him ugly looks. That, is another story. Let's just say that last year my dad took a swing at Troy when we were hanging out at the dinner table when I still lived with my parents.  (My dad has dementia)

Anywho. It was wearing my nerves pretty thin that he wouldn't come inside. It was pretty cold out for a Florida winter, he has a habit of disappearing and walking home. All I wanted was for my hubby, my best friend, and I to have a good new years together. I made him come with us specifically so he didn't have to spend new years alone, moping in his bedroom playing TF2 (Team Fortress 2). But no, he had to wait till I rage quit and wanted to go home. Note: I don't think it was even 9pm at this point.

So, I run inside to grab my things and sit in the car. But, the car doors were all locked. Lucky me. So, on my way to storming back in the house to get the keys to just drive off, one of my uncles chases off the cat by stomping and running after him. What. The. Fuck. No way that was going to fly with me, especially if the cat hasn't done a damned thing to anyone except be adorable and rub against you. So I few off the handle and swore his dumb ass down. Seriously, how the fuck would he feel if someone 50 times larger than him came up and started stomping at him and chasing him down? He wouldn't like it. Especially if it was someone he didn't know. I mean, I stomped at the cat a few times but only because he kept trying to sneak into my mom's house. Whenever you went to walk away from the cat, he would dash. Literally, DASH to the door, to make sure he can sneak in. I only did it to make sure he knew he wasn't welcome inside, not to "play with him." Seriously, who does that to any animal you don't know?

Then, to top it off, my piece of shit biological father had to put his two sense in. As if I gave a rats ass about what he has to say. Then, he threatened to kick the cat if he saw him again? Mother fucker. I wanted to shoot him in the face right then and there. If I had a gun, I probably would have. NO ONE in my family is allowed to hurt an animal with me conscious of it. No. One. I'm going to give him a piece of my mind later today. Set things straight with that man. I'm done with him I don't want him even thinking I'm his daughter anymore. I never was, and never will be. He had his chance to shine, to be a father, instead he decided to chase down whatever nasty pussy he can lay his felon hands on.

I grabbed the cat, took him with us in the car and dropped him off about 3 blocks away.. I told him not to go back there, and go to Mrs. Ginnys house. I know, I was talking to a cat. But still. ): I hope he didn't go back there; I don't want to take any chances.

I haven't called my mom back, I haven't wanted to. They didn't give a damn that we had a drink then drove.. She doesn't need to know if I'm okay or not.

Worst of last night? I couldn't knit a damned thing cause I was so mad!! I started to crochett in the car, but the moon wasn't out and I had zero light to see my pattern.. And when I did? Me vs the Pattern and the pattern won. >.<

I miss blogging...

Friday, December 30, 2011

After looking around, I noticed that I really missed blogging. Sure, I have a tumblr but it has so many things to get distracted on. :C I post a lot of junk and it's just... icky. Not like the old fashion blogging I'm used to. I like putting thought and feelings into my blogs... And all sorts of other girly stuff. Now. To the blogging part:

MY YARN CAME IN YESTERDAY!!!


I was so excited to see my package by the front door. [Even though I specifically asked for it to be dropped off in the carport....] I nearly pee'ed myself in joy. But, alas, my husband Pete had to be an asshole and make me chase him down with fiery rage. Regardless, they came in and I'm so happy. Sadly the lighting in my room SUCKS. So the webcam pictures are NOT how they look in person.


Arabian Nights

(Imagination Hand Painted Sock Yarn)
And this is how it actually looks...  


I can't wait to use this!! I'm going to be knitting myself a pair of socks. With what pattern? I'm not too sure. I have a pattern in a book I just bought today from Ruby Tuesdays, but I'm scared that it's a little too advanced for me just yet. Maybe next time. :D


Coal

(Swish DK)


And this is the yarn Pete picked out for me to make him a pair of socks. More than likely it won't be anything fancy. Just a simple sock... I mean, he is a man and I'm pretty sure he doesn't want a delicately laced pair of socks lol. Just something that'll fit his feet and not bother the shit out of him.

I also bought myself some new knitting needles from my Christmas money! I had 20$ out from 25$ Bank of America gave me for "referring" Pete to them, I'm pretty sure it was money to buy some weed but eh... I meshed it with 20$ I got from my biological dad and 25$ my mom gave me for Christmas. With that money I bought myself a set of Hiya Hiya Interchangable Knittng Needle Kit 4 Inch Tips Small Sizes from Paradise Fibers. With the coupon code CL10, I got 10% off my purchase, I only paid $64.45 when it's RETAIL price is $79.90 and it's normal store price is 65$. I think I did pretty good. :) I anticipate it's arrival on the 3rd of January...

As for projects? I'm currently working on finishing up some knitted gloves I'm selling on Etsy. I finished one glove, repaired it a little bit thanks to the lovely Dawn from Ravelry. Here are some pictures of the project...




Sadly, the pictures don't show the yarn's true color... again... Sigh. Here's what the yarn ACTUALLY looks like.


I'm thinking of knitting a bag after I'm done with this. At least, until my new needles arrive. :) I can't wait to hold them in my hands!!
