New Einstein

November 14, 2008

I had palanned to show what I bought today, but I’m still disorganized.  At this rate, it’l be two weeks before I have recovered.  Then there’s Thanksgiving, shopping, Christmas and New Year.  So, I’m thinking maybe February.  It’s the middle of winter.  Sounds good to me.

In the meantime, I have all these unfinished projects.  I have one red sock, one shadow purse and one miniature sleeve to finish.  After that, I can get back to my star sweater.  But, my Einstein is finished—-I think.  At least I can’t think of anything else I currently want to do with it.  I put on another collar last night, decided it didn’t look awful and used the same stuff to add little cuffs.  They may not look like much, but the yarn is a wool, angora blend and it feels really soft.


The flowers turned out well and I even made a little flowered flower pot.


I still don’t know what to do with the back.  Maybe I’ll make some colored trees and remove the same colored ones.

I spent about an hour looking for a new ring tone.  It was making me crazy.  I wanted some thing unique, but irritating enough for me to answer it quickly.  Happy Happy Joy Joy from Ren & Stimpy came to mind, but there didn’t seem to be anyway to get it without having to subscribe and paying $9.99 PER MONTH.  The site where I got  a free tone before doesn’t seem to have nearly as much as they used to and nothing of any interest.  Maybe I will look again tomorrow.  Sometimes you just have to be in the right frame of mind to do these things.

So.  Anyway.  Today was decent.  It’s supposed to be a lot cooler tomorrow so I took my knitting out to the deck while I still had the chance. 

I got up to get some coffee and this is what I came back to.

I managed to get about 24 rows completed. 

I experimented with some flowers.  I don’t know if I will make a flower pot and tie them with a ribbon.  I want to make more flowers first.
