How is everyone today? 😀 It’s Thursday! The week is almost over! WHEEEE! 🙂
Since it is Thursday…here is the bag of the week. 🙂
I went to the mall today to return some shoes. I found them in my room in the bag w/ the receipt. and i never wore them. i was sort of bullied into buying them at Journey’s. So i took them back today. And as i was walking the mall..i stopped by my favorite hello kitty island. and OMG! the owner was there today! I used to see her all the time and she would always give me a discount! well, i hadn’t seen her in AGES! (like over a year!) and she was there today! So of course we were yak yak yak…and i saw this bag. and i said OOOOH…. she goes “OOH you like? I give you discount.” SOLD. doesn’t take much to sell me. 🙂 muahahah!
So i finished 4 of those Yoda hats and I never want to look at them for a while again. hahah. as we speak i’m felting them in the washing machine. I haven’t felted in a front loader in a long long time. Let’s see if it still works. 🙂 pictures will be posted later. but last night i decided to crochet a little Airplane Amigurumi for Mary’s grandson Luke. 🙂 He loves planes. i have been DYING to make this little airplane since i bought the patterns ages ago. perfect. 🙂 it was a fast project. I finished it tonight at knit night. 🙂 excuse the grainy pics. i took the pics at BN so i could give it to Mary before we all left. 🙂

I screwed up on the increases on the body and i screwed up the cone of the plane. Don’t ask me what I was thinking. i thought i was following the pattern. apparently i don’t know how to read. 🙂 i just improvised. 🙂
Last week I went on a shop hop w/ some SImpatico friends. At Yarn and Stitches in Dallas, there was the cutest little dress there and i HAD to have the pattern. no pattern was on location…so it was mailed to me. I received it on Tues and promptly started knitting on it when i got home. 🙂 i ddin’t make much progress b/c i got sleepy and took a nap. hahaah. but i’m getting there. The picture on the pattern doesn’t do it justice at all. Sorry, no ravelry link either. WTF? 🙂
I can’t wait to get it done so a better photo can be taken of it. hahaahaha
What else…oh yes! I got an unexpected gift from my auntie this week. She knows I knit and crochet and she’s always offering to bring me something from Hong Kong that i can’t get in the states. This used to apply to Hello Kitty items, but i never really know what I want as far as that goes, so I always tell her don’t bring me anything. well, she was up in Canada visiting my grandparents and she sent something down w/ my aunt who lives in Houston and ….. i’ll stop here. my family is VERY VERY anti-mailing ANYTHING. it’s pretty insane and i’ll stop there. hahahah but my aunt from Hong Kong got me some HOOKS!!!!!
OOOH aren’t they beautiful!?!?! 🙂 they are the clover itty bitty bitty hooks! you can hurt someone w/ those hooks! 🙂 She got these for me before they were really available in the US. but like i said, my family is insane and well…it took a while to get these to me. so i am forever grateful b/c i haven’t found them in any local store and i haven’t really been looking online for them b/c …well…i forgot 😀 hahahaah.
