Although I'm not sure what they're going to be yet. Nothing on the foot. Probably just plain old socks... though I might make them Dublin bay. Who knows. And I also cast on for Becky's "Molly's Headband."
I know. It's just an i-cord. Get over it. Hmm... that's about all in the knitting department. Actually... that's about all the news. Happy thing for today? The Buckeyes are on! :) Hence the Buckeye Scarlet color of this post. Go Bucks!
Added later: I got my Garden path socks pattern! Yay! Must start pattern... ;) I'll tell you about my adjustments later.

There it is with the crochet chain still unzipped. Note the open book in the background. No way in hell I could do this again without looking....
Here it is on the needles, on top of the two books I used to make it. (That's Lacy Little Knits, I just bought it recently and got it in the mail today. I love it. Ok... so there's not much in there I would make or wear myself but there are some cool stitch patterns, and lots of instructions and how-to's, with pictures. Including picking up a wrapped stitch. See why I found it handy?) And here we have a picture of my wearing the toe. Sorta.
I also found out today the reason my husband should never, ever be allowed to cook, and by found out I mean experienced because I'm getting a serious head cold and found it about as enticing to cook as to, say, crawl through a scorpion pit. This is what it looks like when he's done.
Note: Some of what you're about to see may be painful. Anyone with OCD please avert your eyes.
Admittedly, some of the dishes, the ones in the sink (SOME of them. Not many.) were already there when he started. The cereal box wasn't put away, and... oh, the paw print purse you see at the far left is mine. This is what my kitchen looks like after I cook (and after I've eaten...)
You should note that there is NO SPILLED FOOD on the stove.
See how shiny? And everything is put in it's rightful place. I hate being sick.
Oops, I nearly forgot. Happy thing for today? In the end of CSI and NCIS, everything turned out the way I had hoped. Well... not everything... but the important thing is... you know what? I don't want to spoil it even more in case you haven't seen them. Let's just say that on one show one heart is broken, but on both shows things are probably gonna be okay. Which makes me think maybe everything will be ok. Man I'm glad those shows ended well... ;)

Don't you love my advanced swift and ball winder? (The swift being an upside down TV tray, the ball winder being my thumb.) After about 15 minutes... ta da! It's a ball!
I'm so excited, I can barely contain myself. I'll update later. :)
Added later: No, my pattern did not come today. *sigh* So sad... Anyway, I might as well add my happy thing for today. Chocolate. Enough said.

Just so everyone is clear... I worked, like, 8 rows on my MS3 today. It was amazing. I started a row, and minutes later, it was done. I think I was getting burned out on the nearly 300 stitches/row thing.
Happy thing for today: Making new friends. Sounds stupid but... it's awesome. Kinda gives you a high, you know?

This year, she'll be taking part in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk to Cure Diabetes along with a half-million other walkers across the country. Our goal: To raise $90 million to help fund research for a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications.
Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating, often deadly disease that affects millions of people--a large and growing percentage of them children.
Many people think type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin. While insulin does keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, it is NOT a cure. Aside from the daily challenges of living with type 1 diabetes, there are many severe, often fatal, complications caused by the disease.
That's the bad news... and yes, it's pretty bad.
The good news, though, is that a cure for type 1 diabetes is within reach. In fact, JDRF funding and leadership is associated with most major scientific breakthroughs in type 1 diabetes research to date. And JDRF funds a major portion of all type 1 diabetes research worldwide, more than any other charity.
I'm writing to ask for your support because now more than ever, EACH of us can be a part of bringing about a cure. Each of us can make a real difference
Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as you're able?
Together, we can make the cure a reality.
Please visit her Walk Web page if you would like to donate online or see how close she is to reaching my personal goal:

In other news, my car got broken into the other day. My stereo was stolen. Apparently a bunch of other people in the complex got robbed. I'm bumming hard. I think I might go to my mom's house tomorrow because she has the stereo that's in her old junky car and she said I could have it. So hopefully my brother-in-law will install it for me.
Anyway, so yesterday, Emmy and I went to Petsmart and I bought myself a betta fish. I spent like, 45 bucks on him. Cause I had to buy an aquarium too. I got a 2 gallon one, and one real plant, the others are fake. Here's a picture of the tank.
And the fishey.
I don't know what to name him. I was going to name him Sirius but... I don't know, it doesn't fit him. So I'm trying to decide, and I'm open for suggestions. (This picture shows his true colors... but I may have made him blind with my flash.)

the word out all across this great land we love and call the United
States of America. Let's see how powerful e-mail can be!
On Tuesday, September 11, 2007 everyone in the USA who
will be driving a motor vehicle is asked to drive with their headlights
on during daylight hours. Though no explanation is needed as to why we
are commemorating September 11, we hope more importantly to pay
respect to the victims of that day, show our nation's solidarity and
show support for our men and women of the Armed Forces.
You can help by sending this e-mail on to others!

Ugh, I look horrible in that picture. Anyway, he was sooooo cute. I didn't want to give him back, but he was waking up and hungry, so I had to. Then, yesterday Emmy came over again, and we went swimming with my mom. That was a LOT of fun. Emmy and I went to Easton today, and saw Halloween. Scary ass movie, but not the scariest I've ever seen. And, in between all that, I've been working on Icarus and Loksins. No, not MS3. I can't work on two lace projects and only those. I'd go nuts. What was I thinking with the 48 hour thing?
There's loksins, with a special look at my Underneath Hanson cd from Japan. (Only two weeks to the concert! eeek!) I know it's hard to tell but I promise it's really loksins. I'll have to take some pictures outside so you can see the true color.
And here she is, my baby, my Icarus. How I love thee with your soft smooth yarn and your gorgeous needles... I'm almost ready to start the third repeat of the part of chart one you repeat. Which puts me at about 150 or so stitches. It's getting big. Though it's not nearly as big as it will be. Anyway, I'll leave you with this fun pic of Emmy and I, and I'll also say that if you want to see my labor day pics, feel free. I'm not putting them all on here, but they're fun. Go here.

Anyway, my 48 hours with Loksins is definitely over. I'm almost done with the gussets. Didn't get much done at my mom's house last night, mostly because of the boys. They were wanting us to play all day. I'm gonna work on MS3 and Icarus the next couple of days.
