Embiggening |_0$3R

So mom and I are throwing our own mini weight-loss competition. We both have a strong sense of competitiveness and we both are trying to lose weight for our health so it only makes sense that we face-off against each other. My dad also joined but I think it was mainly for the opportunity to cry big crocodile tears when mom and I vote him off the RanCH. *snort*

Sock Madness has begun and I have been using the All-Things-Heather yarn that I received in a swap to make some Simple Side-to-Side Socks (sorry, Ravelry Link only). . I've finished one sock and found it tight and a bit too long (all those people with non-Tinkerbell-feet can just...stub their toes or something).

I've finished a few other projects, in particular for Olympics. Well, okay, just one and I had to rip it out and put it back together again but at least it's done!

this is before I fixed it.

I'm waiting for time and a nice day to actually get a good picture of the nice, fixed version.
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Sierra Aran, 8 balls used.
Needles: Size 10 US
Time: Uh, 3 weeks?
Revisions - Just gotta do things in different order. Band first, top second, bottom last which will help in keeping things oriented.

I'm still working on this shawl:

It's coming along slowly but surely! I just didn't finish it before I had to start Sock Madness.


Trident Layers commercial. Anyone else freaked out by the fact that the babysitter is all alone with two CREEPY children and when the parents arrive, it's revealed that not only is there a spooky chimney sweep present, but also a rather blank-faced gardener (oh he *tries* to smile but it really comes off looking like he can't, super scary) and an electrician with very sharp ears and a sense of victimization.

Dear Trident Layers - get a new commercial and stop making me look at every gardener, chimney sweep, and electrician cross-eyed.

No love,

Let the morning come

This is one of the most fantastic music videos I've yet to ever see.

Funny enough, there was a New Moon calendar on the wall behind him.

I was getting labs done today and as I sat in the oversized seat, the guy drawing my blood asked where I was from. "Spanish Fork, but previously from Kansas."
"What? Why'd you move here?" he asked. What a question.
"Pfft, because it's Kansas!" I said and he just began laughing.
"That's the best answer I've ever heard." Obviously, he's been there.
