20 days!

I've gone 20 days without one single slip. (not even one ball of yarn bought)

Of course I still need to knit up my stash... but I'm working on it. I think I just finally got to the point where I really can't justify any more yarn... I really have a lot of beautiful yarn to get to :)

Have a great week

Finished a couple projects

Baby sweater for a friend who is due any minute.

Of course my guage was a bit off (my bad) so it'll fit the baby when he's about 1 and a half :)

And here is the scarf for my boyfriend for our anniversary:

It's really soft. I'm quite happy with how both of these turned out.

For my favorite little 1 year old Quinn. I am a little late for her birthday... but not toooooo late.


My yahoo horoscope today:

The procrastination must end -- take a deep breath and finish what you started.

Well if I am to finish what I've started... I've got a lot of knitting to do :) I've started a lot!

Ok I just bought yarn for a sweater and a scarf... but the place I bought it from is giving 100% of their profits to Katrina relief. And I have ordered from them in the past and loved them. So I will re-set my counter but not feel too bad about the fail in my yarn diet.

And to encourage others... here is the site

Little Knits

They are also having great sales at the moment...

And I got Cascade Pastaza in multiple colors to make a striped cardi. And some noro transitions in color #6 for a scarf. Ok back on the wagon for me.

My Fun with Google

I'm copying this idea from LisaB. Go to google, click on images and then search for these things from your life:

My First Car (funny LisaB and I had the same car):
Blue 1984 Volvo Station Wagon.

I got it in High School when I was a sophmore. And it fit so many people. It's actually still around in my family. My brother was driving it for awhile as his car had some major mechanical issues. But it was recently sold to someone else for a whopping $500. I drove it from 1994-2001. Then got a honda civic because I commute and the civics 35 mpg beat out the 18 the volvo got. But it was an awesome car :)

Place you grew up and place you live now:
Grew up in San Rafael California

This is actually an image of the San Rafael Civic Center. Frank Loyd Wright designed the building and it was the setting in the movie Gattica. This is also where I used to go to the library as a kid and where they had a farmers market in the summer.

Now live in Berkeley California
This is a photo of the Kite Festival they have in Berkeley once a year. It's always kinda fun. I've gone a couple times.

What shows up when you type your name in and your blog name:

Shocker. I so have a Porn name :)

Or I get this kind of amber:

Favorite Food:

Favorite Drink:

Favorite Song:
Interpol Obstacle 1

Interpol is a great band. This song is from their "Turn On the Bright Lights" Album. But "Antics is a great album as well. They have a haunted quality to their music.

Favorite Smell:
Just after it Rains

And I also just love the rain.

Favorite Pair of Shoes Ever:
Well maybe not EVER... but currently these are my 2 favorite pair of shoes. Adn I cheated and went to for the pics.

Just wanted to post a note expressing my sadness for everyone effected by the hurricane and the flooding. Especially the people still stuck in New Orleans. And remind everyone who can to donate time or money or both to the people who have lost everything. This is the the link google has up for donation collection. But I don't really care who you donate through... just go help as much as you can.

Red Cross
And a list of places to donate to including some to help the animals too.
