Never let go

Ok, ignore the video but oh god, the song. Oh, god. That's all I can say.

New Project and other news

Ok, So I just thought I would post quickly about my current WIPs. I just started making the "Dream Swatch" from The Garter Belt and I'm loving it. I decided that I HATE my Dublin Bay socks. They're so boring that they were eating my brain. So I'm making the Dream Swatch out of my STR Lucy. I took out one repeat, so instead of casting on 24 stitches I only cast on 18. I'm loving it. Well... I like how it's turning out. I really don't like the knitting it part. I like it but it's a little hard to do. But that's ok, because I love how it's turning out. Other than that... I started Clue three on my MS3... and I peeked at Clue 4. Yikes. It scares me a little bit. cause when you have to do something different every stitch, I get confused. I may have to... I don't know, work it one stitch at a time and cross them off on at a time. Seriously, that's how unfocused I am lol.

In other news, I got my Hanson CD. I LOVE it. And hopefully I'll be going to seeing them at the House of Blues in Cleveland on September 19th. Cross your fingers for me!!!

And since were making today all about the PSA this is something everyone should always remember:

So, I finished The Deathly Hallows. It was... long. I mean, some of the stuff that happened I was like "Ok that's what I was guessing..." and of course no one yet knew what the Deathly Hallows were... and I found out some stuff about a professor whom I hated that I was hoping was not true, but it was... and she said only two main characters died. Not counting the bad guys (but counting the professor whom I hated...) that makes... Five. Well, two of them are, I GUESS, secondary, but still, five? I was only really upset about two of them, you find out about them at the same time. That... hurt. I actually cried out, and cried a little. But that was the only time I cried. Which is good, cause at the end of books 5 and 6 I cried my eyes out. And one of the characters who died was a real shock but... I'll let you all figure it out on your own, shall I?

Back to MS3. Pictures coming soon.

Oh the humanity...

That's right. The unthinkable has happened. Yesterday, while knitting on my stole, I found... a dropped stitch. This means that I had to go back to The beginning of chart B. I was on row 97. NINETY-SEVEN. *takes a shaky breath* I'm ok now. I decided to just start over. I wanted new beads. Now my beads are ruby red and they look so cool. I'm happy about that. Really I am. I'm going to to mourn.

OMG Just SEVEN more days....

Bad day?

Well, as you all know, I was sick a few weeks ago, with something like pneumonia. Then, last Wednesday, I called off work because of my tooth (it was hurting so bad I thought I was dieing...). Then, yesterday, I was confused about what time I had to be at work, so I was late. Apparently, all those things added up, because today when I got to work they asked me to resign. *rolls her eyes* I hated that freaking job anyway. I'm hoping to get a job at Saturn, so cross your fingers.

In knitting news... lets see. I started MS3 and it's soooo pretty. I'm almost done with chart A of clue 1, which... isn't very far... but I'm happy to report that it looks just like the yarn harlot's! Except... pinker... I'm also almost done with the heel still on DB 2, and I started a headband for my sister. I say started because I had one half done, but the pattern I was following looked so dumb that I decided to start over... and she's decided to be mean to me about losing my job. If she's gonna be mean to me, then I'm not making her a headband. So there.

MS3 Has taken over the world!

Well as I'm sure you've heard, Mystery Stole 3 has started. It seems as though everyone is making it! Which is on one hand exciting cause there are so many other people there to help you out. On the other hand, 5000 + people are making the exact same thing as you. Although, that is even kind of cool because... well think about it. I'm knitting this and at the same time so many other people are doing it... it just makes you feel so connected, doesn't it? I'm making mine in Merino Oh I think it's called, it's made in Italy... and really cheap. I got 1375 yards for just 1400! I was so excited about that. I'm making it on size three needles... no Angie, I didn't go buy size three circulars, although I was at the yarn shop... I just felt it could wait until I see how much room I'll need on the needles. I really don't like circulars so if I can avoid it... though... shoot, I did want pointier ones, didn't I? Oh well. Anyway, I'm of the group that says we hate neutral colors. I'm making mine out of a light pink color, which I figure is still neutral but it's colorful too. And me. :) In other news, I bought some yarn today, including some red sock yarn (not variegated) to make some lacy socks. Pattern TBA. And I'm almost done with the heel on DB #2. Or, since I'm redoing the first one, is that technicalled DB #1?

Happy July 4th!

Okay, so for starters, the DB sock's fate has been officially decided. It's going to be frogged. I just... hate it. I hate the way it's just slightly too big, I hate the heel... I just hate it. Which means there will be a DB sock number 3. *sigh* Oh well. At least I'll have mindless knitting... I've decided to make the Austrian Lace Sock from this blog, Dipsy Doodle, that Angie found, with my Socks that Rock "Little bunny foo foo" so that should be at least a little more complex... and I'm still... ahem... working on my party scarf from magknits... though... it's just hard, ok? I mean, little yarn and all... I'm working on it! :)

The sock that ate my mind; and, why I pay for health insurance

Ok, for starters, the Dublin Bay socks SUCK. Actually, that is a lie. MY DB socks suck. The pattern actually rocks. I just can't take this anymore. I mean, I knit and knit and knit and KNIT and I'm still not at the freaking heel of the second sock. I think I may go crazy. I also think, and stop me if I sound insane, but I think... I may take the first Dublin Bay sock apart. *pauses* I think. I mean... first of all it's too big at the top. Secondly, I really hate the heel I did, I want a short row heel. And thirdly... (is thirdly a word?) I can not STAND this pattern anymore. So... who thinks I'm smart, and who's voting for insane?

Now for the second half of my post. Why I pay for insurance. Actually, it should be "Why do I pay for insurance???" I am in sooooo much pain. Constant, unimaginable pain. I spend half of my time in tears cause I can't stand the pain anymore. You want to hear the really unfair thing?? My FREAKING dentist said that it would cost me at least 200 dollars up front to get a tooth out. So I'm thinking why the $*%& do I pay for insurance? I mean, seriously, 200 dollars??? And they can't even bill me? So I called one of the surgeons the dentist referred me to, and they said that they aren't in my network... but it would only cost me about 50 dollars upfront. So I scheduled an appointment. It's August 6th. That's more than a freaking month away! I can't take it. It's soooo unfair. Isn't it? I may lose my job because I can't work because I'm in so much pain. That's just not right! Is it? I don't think it is. *sigh* Anyway, that's all for now.
