tadaa!!!

as promised, it's picture time!!

this is my beautiful skirt in it's unblocked glory, hanging out on my bedroom floor :)

here's the top that i'm considering wearing with my new skirt. haha, it figures that last month i bought sooooo many different tops to go with my yarn, and then i decide that this top goes best (and i had it all the time...) on the bright side, this means that i'll get more money for yarn when i return all the tops that i did buy

close up of the top with said skirt. colors go well, don't you think? i like it.. i think. i'm too lazy to go shopping for anything else though

and here it is.. blocking. i'm hoping that i do this right. it's making me quite sad though that this yarn smells like wet dog while soggy.. i think i should've added some woolite or scented something to the water. at least i know for next time :)

will update as soon as skirt is done blocking! i can't wait to try this on after it's blocked to see what the difference is!

i'm done!!!!

i finally finished!!! well, not completely. i still need to weave in the ends, and block it. but i'm not doing the belt/loops because well.. i have a giant ass that will hold up this skirt without the need of a belt! plus, all the tops i like wearing would be covering that part anyways, so who needs it?
will post pictures eventually :)

so now i'm trying to figure out what else i'd like to knit next. i'm still contemplating the olympics, and i have 5 skeins of coal and 1 of asparagus from knitpicks that i bought on a whim. maybe another skirt? but this time with my own design?? (all black on the ruffle, plain body. green just above ruffle in a celtic band? too... ugly???) or maybe make cheeseylove from knitty but without sleeves since i don't have enough yarn.. or should i just cave in and order more?! but i don't have a job... and i'm going to vegas... and i like to eat in vegas......... hrmmm.. maybe i need to get a job again :( i hate not having money go into my bank account. it's depressing really. i think i just need to work up a bigger cash bubble next time.

:sigh: where was i? oh yea! excitment at ending my skirt :) i think i should dub it the grey's anatomy skirt rather than lauren since that's what i was watching like 99% of the time i was knitting it (even up to about 130am last night) i LOVE this show! i'm very excited that tonight is sunday so i can have my GA fix!! how lame am i? haha, but i can't decide who derek should end up with.. or if he's just a giant ass who deserves no one. but it's hard to hate an ass as gorgeous as patrick dempsey!

ok. i'm cutting myself off before i blab onto another topic. will be back later with pictures :)

lauren

so i'm part of the lauren knitalong on craftster (pattern found at knittingfog.net) and my goal is to finish this skirt by feb 1 since i plan on wearing it on my trip to vegas (feb 3-6; coldplay, avenue q)
i cast on jan 2, and here are my progress photos:

welcome!!

to my very first blog :) hopefully i keep up with this blog, at least better than i keep up with my live journal. i'll confess though, since this is going to be my intended knitting blog, i probably will keep up with it!
haha, i really am like a 75 yr old retired woman.. living in a 23 yr old asian woman's body. my life really isn't that interesting, but i am extremely addicted to craftster, and almost all crafts.

soooooo... to get things started, here are all the past items that i've knitted (that i have pictures of)
