So, in lieu of knitting due to insane-last-semester-school-stress, I haven't had much to post about in this blog. However, I'm going to extend this blog to other activities and things that I like to do, but of course keep my eye on the prize.
I went to Borders today and finally bought Palahniuk's "Haunted" and read a few pages. I really want "Rant" as well, as it is supposed to be amazing, but they didn't have it. And although I haven't gotten to it yet, I'm intrigued by the notorious "Guts" story. It is apparently so vulgar that it has made people faint, as I heard when it came out. I really can't imagine fainting over it, but if I do, I'll be pretty damn impressed. As a preparatory caution, I will buy Blake some smelling salts at the ye olde apothecary down the road.
I have made some progress on the beer gloves, although I will wait until they are completely done to post pictures. However! Blake and I walked into Knit Nook last Thursday, and they were having their weekly stitch n bitch. I talked to a bunch of people there, one guy was even working on the same gloves as myself! So I think I'll start going on Thursdays, when I can. It seems really relaxed and fun.
I saw a book today called "101 Things to do with an Old T-Shirt" (or something like that), and it amazed me. I kind of want it. I found it! Here it is:
On a continuing note, I watched the rest of the Miyazaki movies that I wanted to see and they are truly amazing. I love them. I've also started watching all the seasons of The Office (US) in order, and I love it.
Thank you guys for checking out this blog! There will be much more knitting news to come, when I have just a bit more time between the hundreds of pages of reading and my final design project. In the meantime, buy me yarn for my birthday and keep on (or start) knitting!
