I'm jealous!!!!

It's been way too long since I've posted. I'm so angry because I have all these picks of some of my finished projects and I can't even post them. I went to other knitting Blogs and I'm JEALOUS! All of their blogs have really cool projects and I just knit small projects. I wonder when do these people have time. They probably all have regular 9 to 5 jobs and I don't so that's the reason. I recently started on my own creation. It's going to be a felt book cover or journal. It's my own design but so far, it looks pretty lame. I knit mostly on my way to work and coming back home.

Some of my ideas

I sat at work last night and wrote in my paper journal about how I really wanted to open my own yarn shop. I noticed that there aren't any "local" shops in the Cleveland area. I thought about myself as a non-driver at this point and said There needs to be a shop that is accessible by the bus that is on a main street that has long hours that will appeal to everyone. I saw a shop open on West 25th that had closed down after many years of being open, then I thought about businesses that open and close in a year. That really made me nervous about a business venture. I would totally do it if I could. I just need a small business loan or win the lottery which ever one comes first..LOL. That's my goal to look into that.

My next idea was to start maybe a small business like Etsy and make purses, scarfs and little things that people have around the house that's fast and easy since I hate really long projects and get bored easily with them. I also told someone in my Teaswap on that I would knit them a tea cozy. Darn! Another project to do plus I want to cast on to make a purse, a book cover and I still have to knit my co-worker his hat. I have way too much stuff to do and not enough time to do it in.

Where should I begin???

Hmmm...I'm asking myself where should I begin. Well, let's is my official birthday and I really don't feel any different except I'm 2 years closer to 30(Yikes!!!) I have to work which I'm sorta happy about and then again not. I wish I had more time to knit and think about my projects. I wish I had more time to read. I wish I had more money and I REALLY want to move!!! I officially hate my apartment and my street. It's too small and too ghetto. Unfortunately, I have a problem staying in certain apartments over a year and I haven't really been in a whole lot of apartments where I'd truly like to stay for over a year. I will definitely be more critical when I move in a few months.I have so many plans to fix up the new spot and start over and do everything "right" this time.

My pics from the b-day party aren't ready and my digital camera is a piece of crap because I can't load anything in any one computer. I seriously need to get my puter fixed a.s.ap. I wanted to go to Karaoke last night and have a few beers and attempt to sing but my friend never picked me up so I'm mad at her now and I have to wait until next week to go Damn!!! I really was looking forward to that. I have two new opportunities for other jobs that I really need to look into. The first one is N.A.R.A. L. Ohio and the other is Medical Mutual. I've wanted to work for a reproductive rights organization since forever and now's my chance. I have to give them some writing samples though. Wow! I don't have any saved from college. I'm a pack rat but I don't keep stuff for that long. I wonder does a Blog count? LOL..yeah I know it doesn't. Okay, I'm rambling. Bye for now.

The Knitting Birthday

Okay, my birthday party is on Saturday and of course it's knitting themed. When I tell people that I'm having a kniting themed birthday, they all think I'm crazy. I must remind you that they aren't knitters and they just wouldn't understand. I'm searching for some fun things to do at the party if it'll be non-knitters there. I don't think there will be but it must be a party that everyone will remember and talk about for the longest. Linda wants to help with the cost by buying food. I think she's so awesome! I told her the punch that I'm concocting will make her forget that it's a knitting party and she'll probably be acting crazy. I'm soo excited. I do have pics to post later on tonight. I have to take my digital camera over to my mom's house and load the software then post them. Stitch n Bitch is tonight and I'm not too sure if I'm going. I really don't like the place that we're going plus I'm all tapped out on money until tomorrow.

I'm doing so much......

I finished up the baby hat that I made for Lisa yesterday. It only took me about a day and a half. I worked while on my bus ride, my break and on the bus yesterday. My only problem was that I thought that I had to bind off but really I didnt. The pattern didnt even say it. I was upset when I realized that the hat looked like a square and it really needed a pom-pom. When I do the other one for Quantia,I'll remember what to do. I cast-on something else last night. I'm making a potpourri satchel for Linda(my mom's friend) for her birthday. Her b-day is tomorrow and I told her I would make it for her weks ago so now I have to make it for her. She's a fellow Scorpio and she's da Bomb!

No one loves me

I see that no one loves me.....I don't even have any comments. Oh well, I'm waiting on my digital pictures to be done so I can do some posting. Maybe oh maybe then I'll have some posts. On a bad note, I lost a brand new size 7 needle on the bus the other day and I was making some "spa" clothes for Christmas. oh well, I'll just have to buy new ones now. I do have a picture of the W.I.P. and I'll post a pic of the FO. I still haven't finished the felted pillow that I'm holding in the pic. Maybe, I'll finish it this week. I also have to finish the scarf and hat set for my co-worker that I promised will be done by the end of this month. It doesn't really seem that it'll be done. Also, someone stopped me at work and asked me to make him a hat. Wow! I'm getting requests. More to come soon of my boring knitting life.

"So much yarn, not enough time."

The BAPS Knitters & STich n Bitch

I went to Stitch N B*^@h on Monday. We always go to Panera Bread in North Olmsted. They Have the best tea, and decaf coffee. I always end up getting a bagel and a cup of tea, then I refill on decaf coffee all night long. I've been in SNB for about 5 months now and we always have fun. There's always a bunch of activities and stuff to do besides the normal weekly meetings. So far, I've not been able to go to any because I've had to work or no money(when I was unemployed). That sucked but I'm taking the good and the bad. I'm posting pics of some of the BAPS knitters and SNB. So enjoy!!!
