Such a Slacker

So I haven't been up to a whole lot lately; but we did find a kitchen table:

SALMI table and JULES chairs from IKEA.

And, I actually managed to sew something without extreme frustration:

headless shot so you wouldn't have to look at both post-thunderstorm hair frizz and arm flab.

I hope everyone is the USA has a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Long time no post

I feel a little guilty that I haven’t written here in a while. I think about writing often, but never quite have the motivation to sit down and do it.

Part of the problem is that I haven’t done much knitting lately. Not sure if it is the warmer weather or what, but I really haven’t had much desire to knit in the last few weeks. I have been working on a skinny pink cartridge rib scarf every once in a while watching DVDs at night. (We have been watching The Pretender series; I never watched while it was on originally but absolutely love it now. If you are a total nerd like me, you can go read some fanfic.)

Eh. It's not too impressive. Not really even worth a photo yet.

What I have felt like doing is sewing. I recently purchased a half dozen or so patterns for various work-type clothes on sale for $1.99 each at Joann. I also got some fabric to make a few of the pieces, and scored a rotary cutter and large mat for 50% off. The only problem is I have no place to sew! We do not have a kitchen table for the new apartment yet (our old one was too big) and there is no other place I can set up my machine. Yes this does means we have been eating on the couch for over a month now.

Hopefully that can be remedied this week. If not, I am at least going to start cutting out fabric.
