I spent money again and I got a gift ^_^

I got this eye shadow set from Sephora and tinted lip conditioner form M.A.C. They make me feel pretty which makes me happy ^_^

This summer we were very fortunate in hiring a third assistant to help out at work and this past Tuesday was her last day. She made this bracelet for me as a thanks. I got her some yarn, a book, and some stitch markers cuz Delly was able to get her to start knitting ^ _^
As for my Hedera socks I think I've only done about 10 rows only in the past week cuz another needle broke which made me a bit unhappy. Good thing I have a spare set of metal U.S. 1s. Then I found a half knitted scarf in my closet which are of black alpaca and I did about 15 rows of it. Now I think I will do a couple rows of this lace scarf I started last year and said I would finish by December (2006) but is not even half way done.
*sigh* so many unfinished projects.

The picture speaks for itself.....This is how far I got on the Hedera Socks with the yarn my sockapalooza pal got me when IT happened. I was patiently waiting at the doctors cuz my Mother keeps pestering me about seeing a dermatologist for my acne. Knowing that there are always line ups at the doctors I bought my socks along and THIS HAPPENS!!!!!

One the bright side I finished and gave my cousin the Moogle (pattern by Amy Shimel). The Moogle does have eyes but I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to my cousin. He's moving to Japan to teach english. I caught him as he was loading his suitcase into his dad's car.

I had another long weekend from work and my Uncle lent me season 1 &2 of Heroes and it was great. I saw it all in 15 hours ^_^.

Ahh!!!!! It turns out that I was suppose to have the Sockapalooza socks sent out by th e2nd not the 3rd!!!! SORRY SOCKAPALOOZA PAL!!!! However, I did send it by Express so you'll still get it this comming week.

Very happy that one of my guy friends asked me to teach him how to crochet. He wants to make the Moogle doll by Amy Shimel. He's had a bit of trouble starting the basics (making the chains and sc-ing) but I have faith in him that he will be turning out Moogles of all colors in no time ^_^.

Can't wait till my sock arrives ^_^!
