Falling causes bruises

So it was only one date right? I'm trying not to turn into that insane neurotic needy girl who feels she needs to fall for the first man who shows her some attention! but dear god Neil is amazing. All I can do is just sit back and watch the melee of my life.

The current knitting project of a top of my own making is turning into a forever thing. FOREVER. I'm not sure what i think about that but I'm definitely determined to finish the damned thing. I'll post pictures soon.

I think thats it tonight because i'm so tired and sober and slightly gassy. so yeah.

The Beginning of the End. OR.... The End of the Beginning.

How else could I start this?

I'm sitting in my mint green fleece penguin pajamas, watching Alfie and contemplating the next project on my hands. Thats it... Thats how I'll invite you into my world.

You see i'm a very busy girl who actually has absolutely no life. If it were not for outside influences, I'd have nothing to talk about. Don't get me wrong, the opinions come flying at me like fastballs in the 9th inning. (i hate baseball) but I could give a damn about what goes on around me unless I'm going to gripe about it. Its what I do best, Bitch and Craft.

I started crochet when I was in high school when my grandmother taught me the shell stitch and I made my first unfinished project. YES UNFINISHED! I started it got quite far, and ran out of yarn. Instead of buying more yarn, I just tied it off and went on my merry way, leaving the needles and hooks to other girls.

After years of goofing with fine art, fashion design and even shoe addiction, I've picked up the hook again and even migrated to the needle.

You see, that's how all this nonsense starts, Sewing is like pot, crochet like meth, knitting like cocaine and tatting like heroin. I'm not at the tatting level yet. Not that hopelessly addicted. I've stopped atcoke. I have morals ya know!

So there you have it, once in a while i'll get totally shitfaced on yarn and create something halfassedly amazing. you'll see it, in between my rants to the world about how crappy it can be on a daily basis.
