*&#@*% Theif!!!!

About 2 minutes after my fiance left for work yesterday morning (and about 5 minutes before I had to leave) he came back into our apartment and told me that BOTH our vehicles had been stolen!!! Now, of course, I thought he was kidding. That just doesn't happen, right? Both vehicles? I went outside and sure enough, they were both GONE! The parking stall where my little CRX is usually nestled so cosy was EMPTY! Now here is a good time to let everyone know that I LOVE MY CAR! It's the cutest little car....its MY car. I was absolutely devastated. I would NEVER take anybody else's belongings.... why did somebody take my car? (AND my fiance's car!)... because they're little punks, that's why. If I ever caught them...grrrrrrrr. Anyway, we called the cops, and our insurance place, etc. Luckily we both got rental cars for free with our insurance so we were able to go to work (although very late) They've found both vehicles now... both of them have the locks and ignitions damaged. argh! We can't get them back until the police fingerprint them, etc. Then we need to get them repaired. I still won't ever like the fact that some little creep was driving my car. Here's a picture of my baby.....

I miss my car. :-(

I'm almost finished the baby sweater..... just have to finish off the collar.....unfortunately, I don't have a digital camera so there will be no pictures until I can get my mom to take some. (which might be this weekend)
In the meantime, I DO have a scanner, so here's the latest addition to my sketchbook. Nothing much, but it makes me laugh.

Baby Sweater

Here is the last of my "distraction" project. (yeah, right! I'm sure there will be more! haha)
It's a baby sweater set for my friend. Her baby is due in December so I have loads of time to finish it. I used pale blue and yellow so it would suit a boy or a girl. It's so soft and cuddly....can't wait to see it on her baby!

Crazy Hat

What can I say? Hats are fun to knit. Quick and easy.... and cool. I found a "crazy hat" pattern on the internet and HAD to make it! It was my first time knitting with sock yarn and I really liked it! The stitches were so small and cute looking compared to my other projects.

One more "distraction" project to show you..... tomorrow. :-)

Bright Toque

What was that yarn poking out of the skully bag?..... It was red (not orange like the picture looks) and yellow yarn for my new toque. (which I will probably never wear but I had fun knitting it)

I'm also halfway finished a second toque in the opposite colour pattern (I had yarn left over)

Shelby (my brother's dog) kept getting in the way as we were trying to take the pictures.... here's proof....

Did i say NEVER wear? .... Okay, okay, I wore it once.... for this picture. (I HATE this picture - I look horrible, but Mom says its nice.....yeah, whatever)

(it's a good thing nobody ever reads my blog)

Skully Bag

This was the first of my distractions.....poor cable cardigan, I will return to you soon. Can you really blame me though? I mean, come on! Its a skully bag! COOL!!! Now I can carry around my knitting and NOT look like an old lady. :-)

Bet you're wondering what that yarn poking out of the bag is for.....I'll show you tomorrow. :-)

Nearing Completion

Yes, I still exist...... I know its been a looooong time since I've posted anything here but I've been EXTREMELY busy..... end of school / new job / moving, etc. I somehow found time to knit through all that and I have a bunch of new pictures to share. I'm only posting a few at a time, so you'll have to keep coming back if you want more. :-)
I'm almost finished my blue cable cardigan!!! All I need to do is finish off the collar and the button-band. Unfortunately, It's been at this "almost finished" stage for quite some time now.... I've had some other projects pop up and distract me.

Curious as to what could possibly distract me from finishing my awesome sweater. (i'm soooo modest!) Stay tuned for my next pictures! :-)
