No Indigo Ripples Skirt yet. That's the first thing. I am really close though. There are a few things holding me back. First, work. There oughta be a law. Second, hand pain. Lots of it. And numbness. Typing sucks, too. And then there is work, it is really hard on my hands. Third, preparing for a little visit to Salt Lake City to see Margene!!!! Whoot! There will hopefully be much knitting on the plane, I have Motrin and I know how to use it.
Look what I did:
I also hemmed those jeans. When you are 4'11" you are doomed to a life of hemming and altering. Jeans have always been an issue. Even though I am a petite, usually regular jeans fit better (previously discussed backside is the reason), so I have to hem, hem, hem. The thing with hemming jeans is losing that cool washed and distressed hem at the botton. I have taken to using this method to hem my jeans and love it. And see how there is fabric left on the inside? It is the perfect solution for when I have my growth spurt and need to let them down again. What!? You mean my nightly wish upon a star isn't going to work? I refuse to give up. Height and boobs. Is that too much to ask?
The best part about the jeans? Marked down to $9.97 at Gap and I had a 30% off. SEVEN BUCK FOR JEANS! AND THEY FIT! I also got another pair that was marked down to $6.97 before my discount. It was a good day for me to shop, especially as I am not fond of the shopping scene. It's amazing I have clothes at all, I dislike it so much.
I got the new Vosges Chocolates catolog in the mail today. You won't believe how they have gone and improved on chocolate. Did you see the banner? Look here. Now, even I can feel my arteries clogging just thinking about it, but for a treat? Yum, I hope I like it as much as I love this. Now you know the way to my heart. Or almost anywhere else you might like to be. Mmmmm.
Well, I must finish packing and sleep. I have decided to take the IR Skirt and plain socks to knit on. And just one drop spindle and fiber. Why have to think too much when visiting? Just knit around and around. So calming. And not brain taxing. Have a great weekend, see you Wednesday!
