today i'm going to start by saying... man i wish i could go home for a visit (and thank you flickr for providing me with visual aids for my homesick-ness). it's been 3 years in october since i've visited my lovely city of toronto and i cannot WAIT to go back. thank god i have my friends so much closer now that i get quick weekend trips from them.
in other news, i seem to have a thing for blue's and purple's lately. ebay shopping is a problem for me, i scour the internet for pretty colors of pretty yarns. how can i turn down a good deal? and hello... 20% off debbie bliss cashmerino chunky? i love sales.
working away on my lauren, i have 1/3 of the 2nd sleeve to go, some blocking, a little sew up of those armpits, some buttons. i'm thinking i might not add the ribbed collar but i'm not entirely sure yet. i kind of like the low boat neck look it has happening right now. possibly just a crocheted neckline? what do you think?
onto the next, i was looking for another big-ish project to get started on and in my lurking of the blogs i spotted this pattern on slipped stitch'blog. i fell in love with is so here i am, casting on before finishing my last big project.
my lauren has gotten to the point where if i bring it out with me on my errands, it takes up quite a bit of space is my bag so i suppose my excuse could be that i needed something smaller?
i hate working at night, i feel like i spend all day waiting to go to work and not commiting to anything that could potentially take me more than an hour in fear that i might be late for work. part of the reason why i stopped bartending but, one of our night time waitress' is on vacation and alas, the shifts must be covered.
my better half and i booked tickets to his hometown at the end of the month, we'll galavanting around the twin cities and north by 2 hours to pick up my new puppyyyyyy!!!
i am really into the idea of dogs having human names and considering i want a boy, i'd like him to have an old man name that i can abbreviate. i'm kind of set on the idea of walter but, is it bad luck to name a pup before you actually meet it? any suggestions on more old man names?
ok. time to wash off the ol' hip tattoo (5 hours yesterday - ouch) and try to figure out what i can wear to work without being absolutely miserable. most likely going to have to wear a dress, a waitress in a dress? kind of silly but jean's will be impossible. hip tattoos can be quite irritating when in the healing process but my GOD, is it ever pretty.
