Science takes game, set, and match... this time

No fun. No knitting. Heart breaking. Just work. All the time.

Consequently, tomorrow we are taking off 1/2 a day to go to the zoo. So yay for that, at least.

Last week, rocked the microwave.
The green and yellow is tie-dyed with hair ties. Started with green and added the yellow. I think it could look really cool knit up. The pink and orange was dip-dyed using skewers; I like that the two colors are subtle so it won't be super dramatic. I love the lavender; it was mostly blue with one fruit punch. The brown was pretty much one of everything mixed together, and it looks like it. Ew.

Fashion, Sarwish-Style.

Sarwish alerted me to these feather headbands as they appeared on Kenley of Project Runway. I was up for the crafty challenge of recreating a $48 headband. A little elbow grease, a little hot glue and I was sure we could make something nice. When I arrived at the fabric store, I realized you could purchase this for $2.19:
Um, I win, right?

So, deadlines are fast approaching. In order of importance:
1. Credit card payment, deadline: tomorrow.
2. Abstract for CMIB retreat, deadline: Monday.
3. Handmade Arcade entry, deadline: 17th
4. Knitty calendar contest, deadline: um, soonish.

To elaborate on issue number 4, the knitty calendar submission deadline is soon and I forgot to get help from people who know how to take pictures... I was left to run around my yard yesterday with an unfinished, unblocked scarf and a camera. Below are the results.

Not as miserable as I expected, but still not a likely top twelve finisher.

Of course, I'd kick myself for not entering, given the prizes.

Oh, and I'm learning how to crochet tonight.
