Yay! I recieved my SP9 package in the mail today. In it, I found a Mrs. Beeton's kit (:D) complete with purple Baby Ull Dalegarn Wool (soft and very pretty), Kid Seta Mohair in a varigated purple, pinke, blue, green, orange, teal colorway, a set of purple siz 6 dpns, a set of pink size 7 dpns, the beads needed, and a large-eye needle for bead threading, and the pattern (plus a letter telling me what I had). I'm so excited that I had to post and tell everyone what a GREAT pal I have and that I've already started swatching. I've never swatched before as I've only made blankets and washrags. Can't really go too wrong with gague there. Thanks SP9 pal. I'll post pics later since I'm at work.

Oh yeah, this is why I came in here to post DUH. The added to every noun kills me, my family does this sometimes, and Dave does it when he gets tired and talks too much. hehe. Me, I'd NEVER do something so stupid. :P
So go check out that last post, really...check the comments. Miss Lime commented, I could just *die* from the excitement. :D Yeah, I could so never be trusted to meet a celeb, I'd be all star struck and babbly. And these ladies just knit like hell, imagine if it was some hot guy star -> puddle.

And Whoo-Hoo, LaurieC stopped by to say hello, she's a cool army wife from Columbus.

In knitting news, I'm sockin away at my sock...again. I frogged. A lot. It was sad. And that's all I have to say about that.

I mailed out my LJ secret pal's present, and I hope she likes what I sent.

OH I bought some banana silk yarn and a cashmere/wool blend sock yarn. I pulled it out of the mail box (the dumb postperson shoved it in our 5inch x5inch mailbox....idiot) and it feels like well.... like angel fluff. I dunno, but it feels goooooooooooooood. :D I can't wait to knit it up. EEP. I think the colors are going to match my fruity pebbles-y scarf I knit already.

Dave's dad works for the secret service and was in India some time ago, and he left us a message on the machine one day and told Dave that he picked up the item that Dave requested. I had put in for some sari silk or some recycled sari silk yarn...OMG, what if he got it for me?! {insert interrobang here} I think I would just fall over ded. ded.

In school news, I am finished with all but one artifact thingy for my portfolio, I think there are upwards of 40 pages linked in that stupid thing. I created one mega honka website kids, and it better get a mega honka A too, or there will be consequences. Grr.

I think that's all the news or semi news I have for today.

If you are wondering, I've been licking my wounds.

But they've all but healed and I'm over that asshole's comments as my supervising professor told me not one week later after observing my teaching in that very class that (and here I quote) "You teach like a seasoned professional and you have insights that stretch far beyond your years. You are a wonderful teacher and I want you to get out to a school system where your great talents may shine."


Knitting wise, I've knocked out another plain ol' garter stitch scarf *I love these things* with Yarn Bee Luscious yarn in sugar plum (I think). So that brings me up to 3 out of the same yarn, all in garter ridges on super huge plastic needles. I love them and I get compliments every single time I wear them. :D Yay.

I've also been knitting like a madwoman on my log castle blankie. I went to see the Georgia Aquarium this Sunday and knit all the way there (3 hrs) and all the way back today (3 more hrs). Well, I didn't knit all the way there and back cause I did sleep both ways cause I'm tired. But most. I knocked out 2 more logs. Praise the Lord and pass the grits.

I'm getting terribly excited. Graduation is in 33 days. 33 more days and I will be a certified, college graduate. A real grown up too. Yep. No more excuses as to why I don't have a REAL live grown up job either. Damn. I love Christmas and all, but November, December and the first parts of January all turn into one big, fat packed, beribboned blob. They blurr all together and you've lost 3 months of your life and don't have the foggiest as to where they went.

But I'm gonna graduate soon, move clear across my state, but will all be worth it by the time my birthday hits in April. Or by God it better be. I do not want to physically move, but I am NOT physically staying in this BFE hell hole any longer than is necessary.

Ok, enough randomness....I'm off to work on the portfolio that is due in 9 days. JESUS.
