Those crazy chicas. In the last few weeks, both ladies have been on googly eye patrol in the name of Roxy... Jas found this through a Ravelry stash page -------------------->
<------------ Bezzie found this through Craftzine.
So I've done a little bit of knitting in the past few weeks.
I completed one of the Executive Funk cuffs last Friday, and started #2 Sunday.
It's actually a lot easier than my first attempts, the lace charts practically worked themselves out... next time I will use a more solid yarn though b/c I wasn't happy with the color pools/stripes in this since it obscured the lace repeats. Oh well *shrug* - live and learn. STR Rock Star is a really happy color though - I need to make more things with it.... like socky socks LOL Illiane's Emergency Knitting bag really makes me smile though - between that and my Monkey Bags, I'm pretty set for portable knitting these days ;)
Summer classes are going okay - I have less actual homework than I did during the spring, but I think I need to kick it into high gear again in the fall. I just want to get honest, decent grades as quickly as possible, so I can move to the next level! If I continue at this pace, depending on which optometry college I transfer to... it will take me 24 semesters to become Dr. Roxy. (this is based on 8-11 credits per semester, where I have to be at 3.4 GPA or better) Unfortunately, even with maxing out my student loans, I can't cut my paycheck. The classic Catch-22... I need to get through school to become a doctor but I can't cut my work to concentrate on school FT. Makes me cranky, because I just want to make up for lost time.
I picked up the needle felting bug also a few weeks ago - a kit I bought from MD S&W featured Korean kittens.
This is the finished product:
I almost looked at spinning, after playing with those tufts of roving, but I can't allow myself to get sucked in. I just don't have the time or money LOL My crafts are knitting, sometimes crochet, beading, punch embroidery, origami and now needle felting. I wanted to start drawing and painting again, but that falls into to no time/no money category as well. I do need to start my exercise regimen again , not only to get back into shape, but to try and get my energy levels back up again.
So that's it for now. I'm making vegetarian eggs florentine for dinner and waiting out this nasty storm system that is rolling through. I'll be back later this week (hopefully) to try and get a regular blog roll going again LOL
