First day of my first senior year

I wore this. Original tags still on when I bought it at Goodwill.

Crpquette Lace tube top

I started this top a few days ago at work. It is made of a linen cotton blend, which means the first row makes you want to die.

I am altering it a tad, and I plan to wear it either tucked into high-waisted skirts or perhaps with jeans?

Either way, I had to frog about 2 inches of it because the lace pattern was published wonky in Fitted Knits. I felt that something was off, but I was at work and I wasn't thinking too deep about it.

Errata. Ugh.

Thursday, August 19, 2010 you were walking onto a yacht

I found these pants in Pittsburgh earlier this season. I have never really gotten into man pants before, but I like these. They are high rise and stark white and awesome.

They make me look like I own a yacht. Hell, someone should just GIVE me a yacht for looking so boss in them.

I kid.

But really.

I found this dress at Goodwill a few months ago along with a few other pristine dresses. The original sales tags were still on, as if it had spent the better part of 50 years trying to find me.

I am knitting again!

I am going to post more. I don't have a camera, but I'll make due.

It seems weird to say, but sometimes I get a bit too hyped up to knit. I have so much energy sometimes that it is hard to sit down and create instead of running my crazy mouth all the time. But the thing is, sitting down, breathing in and out with my stitching helps me calm down. So lets see if being obsessed with knitting again helps out my senior year of college. Crazy, huh?

Either way, I quit working my shitty big-box retail job and started working as the devil herself. I kid, but pretty much. I do push-polls. For republicans.

But I can knit. So, it I am a productive devil at least.

This sweater is Sonnet from an old issue of Knitty. I am knitting it with Louisa Harding 'Hulda' I bought at Tuesday Morning. Did you know they had nice yarn there? Maybe it is hit or miss.

I am doing 2 rows of each color and doing bits of seed stitch instead of the recommended box stitch. I should have enough to finish the sweater, but I might have to skimp on the sleeves. Maybe I will make one sleeve cream and the other brown? Decisions, decisions

But I am happy to making these kinds of decisions again.

Stay tuned.
