knitting and the life I almost have around it

and now?

Ok so this is a definite giveaway. Congrats to loribird it is indeed the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rock and Weave sock pattern. Is BEAUTIFUL, I highly recommend it.

As for the yarn, not to be a salesperson or anything but i do have some on eBay... But really ladies you know how i work. Just email me if you're really keen and we'll see what we can do :)

I'm having a day off. It's very nice but i'm in that terrible disatisfied mood. I knit for a while but its not what i feel like, neither is dyeing or spinning. theres some writing i should be doing (and really want to do) but even that just isnt doing it for me today. Last week wasnt a good one for me. I dont know if its the incoming birthday blues or what but i feel.. unattractive. Not that i usually feel like a stunner or anything, but usually it doesnt really arrive on my little shore of awareness to give a damn and suddenly here i am freaking out that i might have cellulite. I know it sounds daft, i have a sherpa employed full time to tell me it sounds daft.
I think it might have something to do with working so much and being surrounded by mirrors at work. and ladies this little spider is working HARD in the sun and with dirty, sooty things so its kind of miraculous if i get to the end of the day and i dont look like i got spit out of the back end of a camel. maybe i should try harder to sell all the mirrors ;) (was very nice to get visitors on saturday, apologies if i was a little flustered)

Went to visit my cousin yesterday which was nice. She's one of my favouritist people in the whole world and i hardly ever get to see her. Stupidly i took no photos of her and her daughter but even if i had i wouldnt be putting those up here. Just imagine a laughing lovely woman and her manicly grinning blond 7 year old. got that? yup.

anyway, i might go an have a second attempt at not being a total layabout.

Oh oh before i forget, anyone want a menapause bar? I have no intention of eating it, it looks disgusterous but i couldnt resist the purchase at 75 cents.

see you all on tuesday AND thursday and i will bring my ball-winder and swift for Kylie on thursday should anyone have any skeins that need balling :)

    Damn those socks look even better'n I thought they would! How divine is linen stitch and that colourway - too, too good.

    At least you're not feeling so blah that the disgusting chocolate looks good. See you tomorrow night - I'll keep and eye out for signs of camel-doo-dooness and let you know accordingly ;).

    Curses, I should have known it was a sock! Stunningly gorgeous as always.

    Sorry you're feeling down... life just sucks sometimes, and not even for any particular reason. Maybe a walk or something will help? Or tea and chocolate and a nap. Or both!

    Anyway, slap me and tell me to bugger off... I'll stop giving annoying advice now ;)

    I hope your yucky feelings go away soon. I know it's summer where you are, but I feel like that in the winter.

    Your yarns are gorgeous! The sock is beautiful, too! :)
