the BIG plan

Jules and I have been hammering out details for a joint project. I dont want to give out details yet as I hardly have any, but it will be spectacular. I'd like to be opperational June 1 but thats probably a pipe dream and will settle for ASAP. Hopefully our meeting with the creative designer will inspire him to a fevered frenzy and we'll be up and blogfamous in no time. lmao. blogfamous.

i think i just had a yarn-gasm

Ok. I've calmed down some since writing out the first draft of this post. I have a lot to say and I'm in a fantastic mood so lets get to it.

Yesterday was a special day. Not only was it our anniversary but the shopping gods smiled heavily upon me and oh did I bask in it.

I was at odds over what to get Toby, we celebrate anniversaries but usually don’t make a big deal out of it. Happy anniversary, lets get it on type deal. I just wanted an excuse to updrage him. So I bought him this posh leather card holder + removable brushed silver money clip from Harry Rosen. Nothing but the best.

Salvatore Ferragamo

I finally used up my $50 GAP giftcard. With these three below. I bought the white one in black, and the black one in a bright blue. Versitile pieces as each can be dressed up or down.

Yep! There's more!

I visited the holy grail known as "Cosmetics World" at Yonge/Charles. Wow just about sums it up. They have every styling line imaginable. High end shit man. I found the whole sebastian laminates line. *drools* so I picked up a new bottle of "Get a Grip" the ultimate in volume + control nonsticky gel. I also picked up some fake lashes, the outer half kind because a full set makes me look like a tramp. Straight up.

Gosh. I haven't even gotten to the yarn porn yet. Holycrap batman.

First let me show you my progress on Lelah. Cast on last night and 4 repeats later..

my precious.. preeeeeeecious debbie bliss arrived today along with two Addi Turbo Natura 24" circulars.

not sure what I'm going to make with this yet..
Trellis scarf? mmm....

Check out the joins!

Who's a happy kitten?

My first yarn+needle purchase from knitpicks arrived yesterday and you bet I was swatchin the moment I sat down on the subway. The Lelah calls lace bit calls for 7&9's but they have not arrived from the other sale I bought from at knithappens but I can easily enough fit them on a 16" untill the 24" arrives.

This is going to make for some great semi-mindless knitting. Although I am swatching carefully. I've read on other blogs that this can be the top from hell if you dont get your guage in check.

3.25mm, 5.5mm, 4.0mm

I think I'm partial to the smaller guages. As Julie points out, "It looks more handknit than homemade".

Someone's got a bit of a problem...

Uh-oh. I gotta stop bringing my credit card to work. The little voice in my head (suprisingly not Julie for once) knows that it won't stop me for I have it memorized! MUAHAHAHAHAHA! (halp me!)

I just bought 10 balls of Debbie Bliss Cotton DK. The sale advertised 2.60/ball with shipping and tax it was 4.10/ball which is still good according to the kind lady on Craftster.

I have great taste

How suprising is it, that when- for nostalgia's sake, I look up the first yarn ever purchased and it's Malabrigo! Hah.

feeding the shopping jones

I haven't been doing much knitting lately. The needles just aren't calling. Ok that’s a bold face lie- I just want to buy different yarns. I would really like to start the lelah top in the next few days. Maybe I'll do a lil shrapnel damage today? Mebbe.

What color?

I find I spend my time perusing shopping blogs and reading up on what everyone else is doing/wearing thes days. Here are my picks from
