I got my hair cut tonight. I'm not sure why it looks like a mullet after 4 hours of grad school assignments. Hmmm
I have FO's to share, but I've been feeling bad and haven't wanted to put makeup on in order to take pictures. I don't want to force you all to see the face of death.
Oh! Also I've been seeing a lot of finished secret of the stoles out there. They are fabulous! A very beautiful pattern and I really like the theme. I'll probably end up knitting it, but in white, because all the light colored ones are sooo pretty. Great job everyone who has forged on!
I swear there is something wrong with the air quality of my workplace and am seriously considering getting someone to come test it once I am able to go back. Moldy nastiness and I just don't mix. My nose ran all day Thursday, Friday, and yesterday and today I feel like crap so I called in. Who knows what tomorrow looks like, but I swear I'm fighting it as much as possible. I want to see my family for Thanksgiving! I don't want to spend it lying in bed again. So I'm trying to keep from giving in. I'm not sick. I feel great thank you! That humidifier? Everyone can use a good climate and humidity controlled environment. The OTC meds lying next to me? Where did those come from? The nearby Walgreens must have exploded.
At least I have a nice, clean, dust-free house to lie around in. :)
I seriously had to wear a mask all day because I am so sensitive to dust. I've been trying to keep from getting sick since the holiday is coming up and I have traveling to do.
The cleaning is coming along. the living room is done and my closet is done. I still haven't tackled the corner. I get caught up in organizing and often let the other things slip by. I already have a list of things to buy at walmart to help me get my closet more organized. On that list is now cedar chips. :(
*update* the offending bug is dead, but I'm leaving it all in the freezer for a couple of days just to be safe. I also bought some moth/carpet beetle killer to put with my stash. The only thing I'm worried about with these are that they are toxic if you don't keep the tablets in airtight containers. I didn't read that when I bought them. They have hangers which led me to believe they were made to hang in closets, but they are made to hang in trunks and garment bags. Oh well. Note to self: have daddy make a cedar trunk for my stash, or even better a pretty looking cabinet. haha
The bedroom of chaos
That pile on the floor in front of my dresser... it has been there since I moved in. My bedroom had never actually been clean because of this corner. geez I seriously need some major help.
Caught you off guard? I cleaned that last night. There was no way I would share how horribly dirty my bathroom was. The kitchen is pretty bad right now as well, but not horrible. It is the only room I keep clean at all times. I'm not sure why, probably because I eat food from that room. haha
Ok as I said this place will be cleaned by Sunday. I'll try to lay off the knitting until I finish it.
So these weren't Wonderfalls inspired, but I was watching it while I was posting them to flickr and decided they needed names. Some actually match with the colors, others don't, but these are some of my favorite references to the show. If you haven't seen it, maybe you will be curious enough to see it now.
Fingering weight - knitpicks bare superwash wool/nylon
This is my favorite!!!! It was a PAAS surprise dye job. I just dropped all the tablets into different places in the water and let it set. This was the result.
