In other news...

How sad is it that I kinda don't want to blog because I don't want my incredibly silly and long title to the 06 06 06 post to go away on the sidebar? In other news, I categorized dice today according to the number of sides (4, 6, 8, 10, 12, & 20) and to style of dice (clear, cloudy, marbled, freckled, and solid colours). Yup. Thrilling.

Canada day was bloody awesome (just like I said). I went to the park with Jenn and her friend, who has two darling little girls, and we had a blast. I am apt to find that younger people are more fun to be around more and more (this statement could also be founded on the fact that a friend my age who was suppose to accompany us couldn't because he was still in bed half an hour after he was suppose to show up so.... but still, the girls were lovely). And lo and behold, what do I find in the park? YARN! Beautiful, beautiful yarn. So with my own money I got two skeins of recycled silk sari yarn from Nepal, and with the Xmas money from my grandparents that I had saved for just an occasion I got 22 very long strands of hand dyed hand spun felted wool from Germany!

Couldn't you just die? Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for the wonderful Xmas present! It's the prettiest wool EVER!!! I'm thinking (with a lot of Jenn's help), two wallhangings, one a blue underwater theme, and the smaller one very bright sunshine red colours. And again, just to emphasize, a lot of Jenn's help went into that decision.

So I have two days off again. I'm knitting a sock, so I'll post that soon cause I can, and I'm working on some new drawings that I will see if I can get up to the university and scan sometime. I'm not talking to Aspirations right now. I don't like the watercolour part of it at all. I'll fix it somehow.

And yes, I did get the rainbow brite cakepan. And yes, it was very, very good.

(and hopefully, Spike will have blogged tonight, thought I would tell you because he's been rather anti-social as of late)

i am totally impressed with the yarn you bought - and more than a little jealous of your talent in this area. i'm still having trouble with garter stitch. i'm thinking of switching tools - i don't have the patience for knitting all the time, but i like yarn, so maybe i should finally learn how to crochet (tee hee crotch - ette). maybe you can teach me stuff over christmas holidays.

and beeeooootiiiful cake too!

i'm gonna have to come live in your house one day and eat funky cake and sleep under fuzzy afghans and stare at beautiful wall hangings. how comfy does your home sound!?!?

luv, yer seester

That was some damned fine cake.

That wool look pretty, and those photos are fun, with the close ups and colours.

And awesome cake! I'm glad you took a photo, because it shows how much effort you put into the cake and icing it. It looks great!
