Cobblestone

I am at the halfway point of my second sleeve on my big brothers cobblestone. I have to say, the cascade yarn that I am using is a joy to work with, a real treat. I would definitely use it again, my experience with it has been nothing but pleasurable.

The Fisherman's Hat

Hell ya I sent it to him. Don't worry I got his permission first. It fits, it's a little snug, but he feels that's good because it will keep it from coming off. Probably could have made it a little longer as it comes to the top tip of his ears. His naked head now has a cover, I am happy.

Today is the 14 year anniversary of my dad.

I miss you daddy.
I love you.

14 years

14 years ago i lost the greatest man i've ever known.  i miss you daddy.

WIP's

Hi ya bloggy,
Oh how I've missed you. Haven't had much going on in regards to knitterly things, as my mojo was hiding again, this time in the freezer behind the garlic bread! Anywho... had the baby shower last weekend and no I did not finish the baby sweater from hell in time for it, and you know what I. DON'T. FRAKKIN. CARE! So put that in your pipe and smoke it! (sorry, was guilted into going to the shower and pushed to knit something for the baby, so ya)
In happier knitty news (ya, totally just typed news knews) I have been knitting on my awesome brother Todd's cobblestone sleeve. This makes me squee with excitement. I'm chugging along on my sweeties socks, they may become my Hell's Kitchen project. Sadly, my BSG socks are at a standstill, haven't had a weekend to myself to watch BSG. No BSG, no BSG sock knitting. I am hoping to rectify this come Saturday. I also hope to take some pictures of said socks some time in the near future and post them.

Who is Holly?

(Probably should have been the first posting...but it wasn't so tough :p)

Holly Golightly: the na├»ve, eccentric woman from Breakfast at Tiffany's.   

I've always been the kind of gal who will skip down the street, catch a snowflake on her tongue and if in the right mood, will strike up a conversation with a stranger.  I don't talk, I babble on randomly, my thoughts bouncing from one subject to another and then if I can remember what it is, back to my original thought.  I compare it to that of a 4 year with A.D.D on a sugar high.  The boy remembers this from way back when walking around Davis Sq.  He told me in one of our emails that, that I seemed so alive to him then. 
He also mentioned that I had changed from that girl back then and he was right.  Back then I never really cared what others thought of me, I was comfortable with who I was, and happy with myself, and yet somewhere in the living of life, the older I got, I started caring what others thought and tried to conform to what they wanted.  I had lost my inner Holly.  
Well boys & girls, I made a vow to myself to get her back.  I need to find a place where me and things go together.  So I ask you 'What Would Holly Do?'.
