october is a busy month for birthdays, apparently! i had to put my cool throw pillow on hold to make a few scarves for friends. i started pretty late, so they've all become belated birthday gifts, and so far i've only completed one. i wish there were more hours to the day.

moving in 4 days! :-)
so great, but there is tons to get done still, so it's going to be the busiest week probably of my entire year. if not, it's a very close second!

here's the scarf i've finished for my friend sarah:

yarn: (i'll have to check the label, my bad!)
worked in: half twisted drop stitch with size 7 needles.



what a busy month! we are finally moving in ten days and i couldn't be more glad. :-)

coincidence of the week:
a few years ago, when a friend moved to a new apartment, i went to visit her and see her new home. on the way up, i decided to stop in at a thrift store and see what funny house warming present i could find. i showed up at her apartment with a statue, about 1.5ft high, of a creepy french boy dressed all in blue. we promptly named him pierre and he became the focal point of many, many pranks. .

today, while i was wasting time on craigslist, i found this :
apparently, back in the 1770's, pierre went by the alias "blue boy," and spent an awful lot of his time with this lovely lady, "pinkie." even though they were done by separate artists, these two usually come in a set, which means i have a new objective in life.

the day i come across pinkie's statue and secure a mate for him will be one of the prouder days of my life. i can't wait.



this week i started a new project for the new apartment. i'm knitting that pillow ---> in a color called "goldfish." the yarn is
vanna white's brand. it's weird to me that she has her own line of yarn.

it's probably going to take me awhile to finish, anyways. i get really bored really quickly when a pattern doesn't change it up any, and especially when it calls for two 15in squares of it, not to mention a few 6ft strips. the only thing that keeps me from adding this to my massive pile of unfinished projects is the thought of how awesome the finished pillow will look in my new place. :-)
