It's Spring. Yay

It looks wonderful outside right now. Unfortunately I am stuck in the house with horrible allergies. I am sure they will clear up in time for the week of thunderstorms and cloudiness predicted, though. Yay.

I went to the library, which is totally worth the half-hour drive. I am still boycotting my local library. I picked up another Stitch'n Bitch book, a toe-up sock book, and two books about knit/crochet flower making for my crocheted grave project (don't ask questions, just go with it).

Right now I am determined to finish a lilac racerback top that I have been working on halfheartedly for a month or so. I started on the back and realised that I lost the diamond eyelet pattern I had planned on using for the back! I've been looking online for something like it, but of course, no luck.

I wonder if his and her matching socks are a lame anniversary present for my favourite maker of pies........I have to come up with something fast or I am never getting a free pie again. And that would just ruin my whole existence. The only thing better than pie is free pie. It's a fact.

The Awesomest Things

Holy crap I just discovered Ravelry. It's AWESOME.

I found a pattern for a freakin knit sonic screwdriver! That was my second holy crap moment of the month.

I also have a strange obsession with knitcheting ( yes I just DID put the words knit and crochet together) outside wearable slippers. So far I've got the toe and sole, now I just have to figure out how to add a heel that doesn't look lame. And figure out how to attach a piece of leather or a bottoms sole of some kind. Playing with the idea of using plastic canvas to stiffen it up...... We shall see.

I have a feeling this will be a month of failed attempts at an awesome dream.

Also, I just realized I have ended two posts with a post-script beginning with 'also'.
