“There are only two kind of dreams: the bad and the horrible. The bad I can deal with: they are nightmares that could never possibly occur in real life. The horrible ones are the worst: in them I am fine, or worse, better than I am now, leaving me with this quiet sense of loss that makes itself known to me all day…”—(I can’t remember where I found this)
“I don’t know. You spend a lot of time debating things. Is it right is it wrong? Should I do this, should I do that? Sometimes you just have to jump in and take a shot. What’s the worse than can happen?”—Gilmore Girls (via 52hearts)
“As you might imagine, the group reads like a list of Twitter trending topics. In fact, see if you can differentiate between the actual additions and popular Twitter hashtags. (Hint: “hashtag” belongs in the former category.)
Crap, these have been finished forever! I can’t believe I haven’t posted pics yet. These were the first socks I’ve done EVER, and my gosh they are comfy. I don’t know how many more socks I’ll do. Very small yarn and small needles, but socks are a nice, portable project. I’ve decided that handknit socks for me are kind of like lingerie…they make me feel special wearing them, even if no one can see the socks and/or cares you spent two weeks knitting them :P
Gosh, it’s been a while since I actually posted anything KNITTED related!! Funny how that works…the truth is, folks, I have finished projects coming out of my ying-yang, but I can’t post pictures of them because most are for Christmas, and therefore top secret!
Got this little number off the needles and blocked this week: the “Multnomah”, named after Multnomah Falls in Oregon of course. When I saw the name of this pattern I just had to knit it because I miss Portland so much…all the green and trees, and rain.
Also to be worn hipster-like, which is probably how I will wear it most during the school year:
Just ONE skein of sock yarn though! Incredible! I loved the green ombre though, it reminds me of a forest floor. Meg said it looks like a “grandma shawl”, which is okay with me because I act like an 80-year-old anyways. I love it.
