1. A black sheep tape measure
See that little black sheepie?!
After seeing it at Jennifer's blog, I just decided that it's way sooo defiantly cute! The only problem? No LYS in Singapore carries them. So if any kind souls out there would care to help me out; an international swap can be arranged. Just email me.
2. A Singing Pig (alright, more like hubby's interest)
Imagine a birthday pressie that sings "My Gal". [grin]
I couldn't find it sold locally anywhere but managed to locate it at overstock.com so I may have to ship it internationally. I am not sure if I could resist throwing a few knitting magazines into the package as well -- that's such a tempting thought.
3. A completed FO
Ever had one of these conversations going inside your brain?
Sweet voice: "Ooh...so many lovely projects. And I love those different yarns that you are fondling."
Evil voice: "My foot! Are you sure she's gonna finish them? She'll probably chuck them into the bin once she loses interest!"
Sweet voice: "No, she won't."
Evil voice: "Yes, she will. You'll see."
And the last 2 statements keep going on and on...
Yes, it happened to me last night after I confessed and blogged of the multiple projects I started. And I was determined to prove it wrong.
So yarn shopping it is, this afternoon to pick up the much needed skeins.
In the evening back home, I took the yarns out and continued my pursuit. I did a count -- in absolute working hours, it would have taken me about 4hrs non-stop to crochet this beret. I finally got it finished just a little before midnight.
Got to say I love it! I just need to make sure I have a nice hairdo, some makeup, funky/retro outfit sans spectacles -- they get in the way of beauty (LOL) and besides, I haven't won my contact lenses for quite a while.
For anyone interested, the pattern's from Family Circle Easy Crochet Fall/Winter 2005.
Now, if only the projects I pick can be completed that quickly....
