Hmm... It sounded cuter in my head... I was trying to think of a good title for this entry. Maybe I tried too hard and broke something? I dunno...
Just been busy getting ready to move. We are currently getting any bills/loans/etc. completely paid off so that if both of us end up jobless for a bit in WA (still tentative on transferring to Comcast in WA, no call centers near where we are going to live), we will not have to worry too much. Getting the ring paid off this week will be exciting and our final F-U to Wells Fargo. I got my credit card paid off there, and now that my gym has finally credited me back the money they weren't supposed to take, I can close my bank account there as well.
Still sifting through all the junk we've accumulated over the years. Jake is finally getting rid of his old computer crap, minus one machine we will keep so that we can play classic '95 games. I still can't get them to run right on newer machines.
Finally getting all of my thank you cards out for the wedding, haven't had much help from the man, and mom-in-law asking me during most of our conversations when I can come up to get her list of addresses. Should be done by this week.
Oh! and I created/finished my first EVAR knitting pattern! Whoo!!! Jake has been playing this game called Anarchy Online for nearly 4 years, and keeps bugging me that I need to sew him a leet doll ( you can find it here). Since we've decided that we do not have the funds/space to get a sewing machine ( we are planning to go all out and get one of the really nice ones that does embroidery and hooks up to the 'puter), I had a choice of borrowing a machine, or handsewing one.
...Forget that. I tried handsewing, it takes for FREAKIN' EVER!
So what's a yarnwhore to do? I know! Knit one!
Yep that's right, I took the sewing directions and converted it into a knitting pattern. I was quite surprised when the first one turned out. I finished him while watching Dune, so his name has become Leeto Atreides. My second one was a bit bigger, with more expensive yarn, and was made to look like a violeet, Jake likes to call him "Hamburger". I don't have pictures yet, they are all on his computer, so I will post them as soon as I get 'em.
Update: I have piccies!
Oh! And if you want the directions I made, just comment and I will email them out. I warn you, since I've been knitting less than 6 months, they may not be very coherent, but I will try.
Also STILL on the kneedles is my Mom's Christmas-now-moved-up-to-birthday present. I've finished the back and the left front now, all that is left is the right front, sleeves and collar. I'm changing the sleeves a bit, they are full length in the pattern, but I know she's not too fond of that style, so I am making them 3/4 sleeves, should work out wonderfully.
One more project, working on finishing a blanket for my Oldest Niece, Lauren for Christmas, and, if I can get to it, two more for Ella and William.
I swear, do ALL knitters have ADD?
Uhm... other than that, just keeping up with school, and getting ready to transfer all information to the Seattle location. As much as I love my family here in UT, it will be nice to be back home with my family for a change. It's been a somewhat lonely 4 years. :P
