Another knitting update is that I got my tax return. I'm trying to be very smart with the money so I balanced the ol' check book, bought a few items and am saving the rest. I was VERY tempted to buy an iphone but I didn't do it. I dunno... I think that Paul would give me a guilt trip if I had a fancy phone and he didn't. I know he would buy me a phone if he bought himself one. Maybe some other time with some other money. I'll stick to my razr for now. I got Paul Red Hulk the graphic novel, Cool Hand Luke blu-ray, an ICP album (Independent's Day) and a Jamie Maddrox album (Phatso) which I know I am going to be tortured with *sigh*. lol. As to myself, I got myself the Louet drop spindle beginner's kit. I am so charged to learn how to spin. I also got a Wool Pets needle felting kit for two small owls. My last item to spoil myself with is 10 skeins of Rowan Yarns Felted Tweed #152. Enough for a sweater. I'll update when I've put these items to use.
Before I forget, I also knit the Odessa hat. It started as a hat for my brother but it was a girls pattern with beads so I omitted the beads thinking that maybe it would look more masculine but it was still girly looking so I sent it off to my best friend Heidi. I'm not much of a hat person and she had been nagging me for one.
