Thursday Purse-Day!

Hi everyone. 🙂  Happy Thursday!

Here is this week’s bag….

lunch-y munch-y! it's cute and cheap! side view.

This was given to me by Crazy Kathy.  She saw these in the dollar bin at Target and bought me a couple of them. 🙂  I haven’t used them for lunch, but today i used it as a project bag.  not such a great idea b/c there is velcro. 🙂   but it cost $1! WHEEE!

This week has been a bit of a roller coaster for me personally.  I didn’t get too much knitting done.   Well, i got SOME knitting done.  but not much. 🙂

I did get a hat done today while at work.  (shush)

shroom hat right view left view top

Yarn: Bernat Roving
Amount Used:  about 2/3 of a skein
Color:  Bark
Needle Size:  US 11 / 8.0 mm
Date Started: Dec 16, 2009
Date Finished:  Dec 16, 2009

This was a super fast knit due to the big needles.   My mistakes included not doing a gauge swatch.  I started off on size 10’s.  I put the hat on after i did the ribbing and i couldn’t fit it on my head.  rip rip rip.  I did the whole hat on 11’s.  another mistake.  I should have went up a needle size after the ribbing.  OR i could have done an extra repeat of the pattern stitches.  Sigh.  It’s a cute hat on me. 🙂  it just doesn’t look like the picture in the pattern.  oh wellz. 🙂

I started a pair of  Golightly Gloves for myself in pinky pink.


I figured by now i would be finished.  But I put them down and got distracted w/ Christmas shopping this week despite my annual protests against Christmas shopping.  I had to run out and get gifts for my friends’ kids.  I’ve been a bad auntie this year and not sent much to them, so I’m trying to make up for it right now by buying their love w/ crap. 🙂  hAhaah.    I hope to have the gloves done in a day or two.  i want to wash dishes in STYLE.  tee hee.

On Sunday we had our annual Simpatico Christmas party.  Thanks to Peggy for offering her lovely home to us insane people.  There was alot of food, some alcohol, lots of gifts and lots of screaming laughing.  🙂  I’ll just put some pics up of the food and some of the gifts.  I don’t know how people would feel about me posting pics of their faces up. 🙂

I took alot of pics of all the handmade gifts that were given and there were some good ones.  I laughed so hard my stomach hurt.  Sigh.  not enough dirty smut books were passed around though.   and MY dirty book got SWIPED by Kathy!  I was so tired after I got home that I had to really just sit and chill out for a while.  Mainly from excitement and cheese overload.  my gawd.  Cheese is still my mortal enemy!! 🙂

Thanks for tuning in. 🙂   I’ll have some FO’s for you guys this week if you want to take a peeky! 🙂
