new projects and updates

I haven't written anything in a bit, so here's an update. I scheduled to take the GRE on July 12th and the studying is a pain in the butt. I'm also participating in the Fort Wayne Museum of Art's Chalk Walk which is held the same weekend as my test. Talk about having to multitask. I'm trying to study and plan out a pic all at the same time. I have decided that my theme for the chalk walk will be "Peace, Love, Knit". Still working up a drawing though.

I've finished knitting my dad a sweater and then proceeded to make my first knitted hat to match the sweater (I had leftover yarn)

I've also been hanging out with my friend Laura. We went to this buffet called the Tokyo Buffett for lunch last week. When we left I made her go across the street to the Marathon Gas station and take pics with the giant Brouster(sp?) chicken they had parked in the lot. :D

I also finished knitting my first pair of socks!
The Knit In at Sarah Jane's was great this month. We actually stayed until about 4:30am. (it started at 7pm). I really think I could've left about an hour before I did, but I got into one of those autopilot knitting ruts and couldn't make myself stop. I'm going to knit some preemie hats and make some more socks next. We'll see how that goes. :D

Lori also tells me that blogs pop up in a list for her to read anytime someone on Ravelry mentions the full name of her shop, so I jokingly told her I'm going to end all my blog entries with until next time "I just love Sarah Jane's Yarn Shop!!!"

I'm having the BESTEST day!!!

OK, so I woke up this morning in a super awesome mood. I visited Mom and Grandma and ran a few errands without any problems. I haven't heard a single bad song on the radio all day. I even heard some of my favorite songs today that I haven't heard in years! (Remember that song by New Found Glory (i think) I believe the title is "Fight for your honor". I just love that song, and it was played to. I haven't heard it in forever.

Add in a great hair day, a cute outfit, and awesome shoes and you have to wonder does the day really get better? I have to tell you that YES the day does indeed get better. I stopped in at Sarah Jane's Yarn Shoppe to show Linda, one of the owners, my first sock (that's right people "I'M KNITTING SOCKS!!!" And who do you think is in the store? Debbie Macomber, the author of many books, including the Blossom street series and whose newest book "Twenty Wishes" is wonderful was IN THE STORE! I talked to her, she admired my knitting and said how beautiful it was. How much better can a day get! I don't know myself, but maybe when I take my dinner break tonight, I better go buy a couple of lottery tickets just to be on the safe side :D
