I didn't work on any of my projects over the weekend. Instead I knit up some mice for Roxy and her new friends Danny and Nova. I'm going to write up an FO post on them so I won't spoil you with the darling pictures now.

I just condemned my sassy stripes socks to hibernation. They put me in a bad mood whenever I think of them. Not sure how much knitting I'll get done this week/end because I have a big paper due on Monday (and I'm perpetually behind on my reading & finals are coming up). But I'd really like to cast on for Cressida this week.

In other news, I went on a knitting shopping spree last week and I'm sort of disgusted with myself. I don't have the money for it at all, but I kept saying "my tax refund will cover it!" So now if I spend my entire tax refund on yarn I'm gonna be really mad at myself. (I hoped to use it for buying new work clothes for the summer since my old ones no longer fit because I gained weight). I applied for three grants to fund my summer job at a domestic violence shelter so I'm praying that I will get one. (Hopefully the larger one!) If that happens I will be able to enjoy all my new stuff without feeling anxious every time I look at it.

Anyway, when the boxes start arriving, I'll post pics.*

*the needle-felting box arrived on Saturday... but that's a whole other story...


  1. You may be on to something. I can't wait for my "economic stimulus" money!

  2. I plan to stimulate a couple of LYSs with mine. :)
