OK, I admit, I'm sloughing off

:P


Decided to hit m1 today and check out their sale as well as pick up the 3mm circular the female sibling unit needed for the Mermaid Jacket. O_O *Lots* of stuff was on sale, and I got a skein of Schaefer's Andrea yarn as well as 2 skeins of 2-ply Jade Cashmere for myself, while the female sibling got 2 skeins of Schaefer's Anne (merino-mohair sock yarn) as well as six skeins of a different sock yarn. *sigh* The real reason I wanted to go was to get more sock yarn for myself but instead, it's all the female sibling unit's. >_<;;

What I wanted was to get some Lorna's Laces Sock yarn. What they had was - nothing! Somebody apparently came in at opening and bought the whole kit and kaboodle!! >_<;; (We went around 1-1:30 PM, they opened at 11AM). Waaaahhhhh!!!

So now, I'm looking at stealing the FSU's previous sock month yarns and/or thinking about ordering some from either knittingzone.com (Lorna's Laces) or from Lisa Souza's (sock! merino). Lisa Souza's is wonderful for turnaround overall, I love the dynamic colours, and I suspect that one skein will make proper knee highs for me. Lorna's Laces, I'd either have to do contrasting ribbing or get a third skein. Granted I haven't finished my current pair yet, but... I'm plotting. :P The current pair (my World Cup project) is... maybe at half length for the sock, and is quite amusing. One's showing lots of light tones, with greeny-blue and purple tones, while the other is dark purple with rare light patches and with teal highlights. ^^;; The joys of hand-painted yarns. As it is, since they're top down socks, I'm hoping the feet will be fairly similar overall in tone, while the legs will be quite distinct. I wonder, if I bought another skein, would I be able to duplicate the effect reasonably well to separate the pair?? :P


Otherwise, for some reason, I've been really bad and playing with screencaps from Saiunkoku. Can I please beg someone to make me an icon out of this image? (You can ignore the title for it.)

Otherwise, if anyone's interested, I've put a bunch of screen caps and slightly trimmed shots from the anime in my gallery on LJ. For some reason the shots are all out of order, and I can't seem to figure out how to reorder them. >_<;; I'll have to play around with it further later.

Anyhow, I *must* sit down with final checks and finish off that SS trans. ^^;;
