Yikes, the wedding is getting closer and closer... for security's sake, I won't be posting anything about the wedding until it's over and we are back. I've heard all of these stories over the years about people who put their engagement announcement in the newspaper, including the actual wedding date, and then during the wedding, their house gets ransacked. Call me paranoid, but damn, that would totally suck! I will post lots of pictures though, I promise. I'm very excited about our photographer- she is amazing, and I can't wait to show her off :)
The new Knitty is finally up- and there is TONS of cute stuff. It totally makes up for the mweh-ness of the last issue. Check out the sock monkey hat and the fingerless gloves that give you faux finger tats. Coo.
So I've started my sock pal's bag like, 5 times so far. Originally I thought I would knit it, but I couldn't come up with anything cool. Knitter's block. Bleh! Finally, I broke down and bought some fabric, so now I can plug in my poor Singer. Singer hasn't seen the light of day in about 2 years, since I made a couple of lame pillows and then stuck her in the closet. Here is the outside fabric for the bag:
This cute little chick print will be the lining:
It will, hopefully, be a simple little tote - I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)
Look- Anthropologie has its fall sweaters up- someone please make some patterns- these sweaters are all adorable.
Oh yes, and I'm also 95% finished with my Paton's Divine Spiderweb Capelet. Thanks Project Spectrum!
-We saw the new Superman movie this weekend. Pretty good, but what was with all of the unfortunate footwear? Lex Luthor had his suit pants tucked into his shit-kicker boots, and Lois Lane could barely walk in her heels. Other than that, go Bryan Singer :)
-Hey, according to the New York Times, diorama- making is the new knitting
-Some interesting links today:
- David Hasselhoff has surgery after freak shaving accident
- Kobayashi (the competitive eating champion) won his 6th straight Nathan's hotdog eating contest (53.75 hot dogs!)
Finally, only 4 days remain until UFC 61- BITTER RIVALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
