So... even though I have all of these projects waiting to be started/completed, I still manage to obsess over the one thing I really wanted, but didn't get for Christmas... a Yarn Swift... So I ordered one of the cheapo metal units going for about 35 bucks a couple days ago and it arrived today... Ewww... it's going back to Overstock.com.
My father always said... "You buy cheap, you buy twice." Boy he was right with this one... Unfortunately, thanks to life Post-College in less than ideal job market, I can't really justify or afford spending $230 on a handmade Cherry Wood Swift from Maine (no matter how Orgasmic the thought of knitting off of it would be!) So alas, here I am shopping for something affordable, durable, and nice enough for me to leave out for visitors to see.... If anyone can recommend a good one, I'm all ears!
Projects statuses from blog post 1... outlook not so good... 75% complete on the neck warmer... will post pictures as soon as it's ready, started one of the Mini Mochi Rainbow Beanies... none of the tote bags complete... my 9 to 5 is seriously getting in the way of my crafting!
Still trying to find a photo of myself that I like enough to post here... with all the supermodel headshots everyone has, it's kind of making it hard for me! Anyone know a good airbrusher? Hopefully I find something I like soon... I don't like being the faceless one in the bunch!
