oh man have i sinned...

...but it's soooo worth it. today was great because my yarn from the LOOPY EWE came today!!!! sooo excited. the mailman knocked on my door but because he's the world's shyest door-knocker ever i didn't hear him and only realized he was there when he was walking away. which is not good! because when that happens he takes my packages back to the post office and i have to wait to play with new yarn... :( so to avoid the waiting period i chased him down the sidewalk in my pajamas to get my yarn. he looked a little surprised and slightly nervous at being chased but too bad. it takes a lot to get between a yarn ho and new fiber. but in the end i got it and all was good in the world.

i got two skeins of claudia hand-painted in earth dot and one skein of zen strings serenity in aloha. so excited. see pics below.

i also purchased a cookie sock pattern...gothic spires...droooool. i don't know that i'll ever have the concentration to make them but gawsh they're purty (!!!). i don't know what pattern i'm going to use for the earth dot, but since the ZS yarn is sport weight and not as long on the yardage i think they will be some summer sock footie things. yay!

let me just add that sheri from the loopy ewe is amazing. not only did she get my yarn to me in two business days but she sent a little note with my yarn that was just too sweet. i can't say enough nice things about her and her store.

the peachy-orangey-salmony goodness in the second picture is my yarn from lambspun of colorado (it's not really as orange as it looks...stupid flash making things freak out). it's a 55% merino-45% wool blend...yummy. i just want to hug it all day long. i'm planning to make a moebius-cowl thing with this...probably using the pattern from a magazine i got...can't remember which one right now. i spent the end of spring break in fort collins, colorado doing an audition and visiting my cousin. his parents, my aunt and uncle, were on vacation so we got to hang out. it was a good time, especially since i hadn't seen him in almost four years. i forget as i get older that my family gets older too...and at the same time cooler. it was fun. mike's a blast and he bought me lunch. so of course i told grandma that he was such a gentleman and treated me to good food so he should be expecting a little something extra for his birthday or christmas from her, i imagine.

so i have no finished projects to show...boo...i should really finish something sometime soon. like the christmas gifts that i gave to my cousins and then took back so i could finish them...oops. i've promised myself that i will start christmas stuff earlier this year...which means more than two weeks before christmas would be good. i'm awesome like that.

lesson tomorrow at 9AM...BOOOOOO. that's way too early. oh well. all for now. i'm peacing out. later fools. bye.

freaking out...

okay it's late so this will be quick. i'm in monterrey, where tacos are cheap and tasty, the weather is 78 degrees in march and all is well in the world. NOT. i have an audition scheduled for sunday. which means i get to fly back to indy tomorrow as planned but get on yet another plane on friday to go hang out with my cousin in colorado and play this damn audition. i am really starting to freeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaak ooooooooouuuuuuuuuut. FREAK OUT. it's a little last minute which doesn't make it any easier. as it is, when i get home i have to do laundry so i have something decent and non-smelly to wear (always a good first impression...[audition panel member]: "okay so who did you like?" [other person]: "yeah i totally liked that smelly chick"....or even worse "i hated that smelly chick)

yeah i'm calm like a cucumber. or something. will have to remember to take the sock yarn on the plane because i definitely forgot it this time...whoops. no socks for dad yet. and now he wants a longer scarf. i made him a short scarf because he asked for a short scarf but now it's too short. whatever. i fixed his sweater that busted a seam in ten minutes flat so he could wear it to work that day and he never said thank you. screw that. whatever.

i never did get my margarita.

all for now. i'll be sure to freak out some more tomorrow when i'm running around my house like a crazy person trying to find all my damn music. wheeee. peace out.

wow. that was fast. one whole blog post in under 10 minutes.


the problem with her is she lacks the power of conversation but not speech.
