If I was a bed, I would stay unmade.

Aw, shucks.

I do have an addiction for UO's sale racks. Almost every time I wait for an item to go on sale, I wind up getting it for 20% or less of the original asking price. It's the benefit of wearing things that are no longer "in style".

By the by, I forgot to mention that I still haven't purchased yarn for my legwarmers. Stupid crummy economy, getting in the way of my knitting.

I have luckily found a part-time job which will provide me with money for crafting as well as time. The problem is all that debt I accrued over the months of unemployment (which were preceded by months of my boyfriend's unemployment which was preceded by a very costly move).

Best of luck to you on your job search! I hope that something wonderful finds its way to you.

And thanks for the compliment! I really have a lot of fun with my work, and I always like hearing nice things about it.  Grin

Finally finished my very tall socks:

... which is not too big a deal. casting off half your stitches one round and casting them back on again in the next.  Smiley

Would it be alright if I joined? I have some yarn that I think would be awesome for this, though might be too thick. But I guess I'll just have to find out. Smiley

I'm new to knitting, and i'd love to try to make these. Can anyone tell me what is the difference between sock yarn and regular yarn?

These won't be autumn, but spring thigh highs if I get my butt moving enough to make them. I WANT TO, they look so cute. I just found this though, so I'd still have to buy the right yarn and I don't know what color I'd want, because I'd want it to be able to go with everything. .... Huh We'll see.
