Homework? What homework?

Meagan and I spent far too long in the yarn section of Joann's yesterday, but we made it out with some pretty good deals. I have two new projects in the works: a long, skinny scarf for myself (made with the sofest. yarn. ever.) and a checkered throw pillow for the house. I also bought some size 3 dpns for no apparent reason, but I'm sure I'll find a use for them.

Also! Look to the sidebar! I spent far too long figuring out how to get progress meters to work, so now you will be able to see how far along I am on whatever it is I happen to be knitting! I can tell you are all very excited.

Now, off to work on my craftster trading card and maybe eventually write a paper.

I'd rather be knitting...

I'm at work right now wishing I was at home finishing up cupcake number two. Needless to say, it looks MUCH better than the first, and it's taken about the half the time. This bodes well for the fingerless gloves I'm planning on (re)starting this weekend.

I have so much crafty stuff to catch up on this weekend! I still need to finish my swap package for the Use What You Have Swap I'm organizing on craftster, and a few things for devilninny, and get started on a project for a personal swap. Plus I'm trying to get a head start on Christmas gifts and cards. I'm hoping I can get most of my school stuff out of the way this afternoon so I can devote the entire weekend to crafting.

Also exciting is the big sale at Joann's this weekend. I have tons of coupons and I just got my brand-new Joann's credit card in the mail yesterday. Honestly, I only applied for it because you get $5 off any purchase the first time you use it. And because it has a pretty picture of thread on it. Hopefully I can control myself.

Alright, back to work. Only 30 more minutes!

Cup! Cake!

I am SO proud of myself right now, you have no idea. I actually completed a project with double-pointed needles. Yes, I may have made a few mistakes, and yes, I'm pretty sure I did the pattern inside-out, but look! Look at that cute little cupcake! Don't you just wanna eat him up? Even better, it only took me two days to knit and didn't frog a bit of it. It probably would've looked better had I gone back to fix my mistakes, but at the moment I am just so darn proud of myself that I don't care. Cupcakes win!!
(Here's the pattern if you want to be a winner, too)

Craft Woes

I pretty much destroyed my hole-punch by trying to punch something that was way too thick (and still sort of glue-y) and then broke off a chunk of my scissors trying to pry it back open. Fortunately, the thing I was working on made it out safely.

Later, a GIANT spider practically jumped out of a pile of tissue paper at me. Horrifying, I tell you. Today has not been my day.

On the bright side, I finished up my "Use what you have" swap package for serialcrafter and stuffed some crockpot-dyed yarn into an envelope for my sister. I'm trying to get as much done as possible before I head to the post office on Monday.

Off to craft -- wish me luck!

So here I am, jumping on the latest bandwagon: craft blogging. Fortunately for you all, I'm suffering from a head cold and am too loopy from the store-brand medication I took earlier to write much at all. My poor swap partners; I'm still going to attempt to craft today. Here's hoping I don't ruin everything in my haze.

Oh, and hi!
