I’m not dead, I’m just shopping

Posted by jackie blue on April 13th, 2005

It’s amazing how finally earning some cash can send me right back into old bad habits. When I’m not working these days, or knitting, I’m apparently a shopaholic. And I don’t even LIKE shopping much.

The tally for the last month or so -

4 pair of pants
4 skirts
1 dress
3 pair of shoes
2 trench jackets
4 tops

someone stop me!!

I also have a brand new scarf called Clapotis. Yes, I finished it over the weekend and luckily it’s been cool enough to wear the past couple of days. Photos to come – I didn’t like the shots I took the other day.

And I’ve been plugging away at the eyelet wrap and I’m up the second front piece – so add that to the tally pretty soon!

Will my internet ever stay up?

It’s been down more than up for the past 2 weeks. I’m on dialup now (re: slooooooow). Thank god a tech is coming on Wed.

OK, so proof I have been knitting, a little. Here’s the wrap of the moment:

I think Em is gonna win this race. And that’s because I brought The Clap {tm} out of hiding:

Will this one EVER get done? I don’t think they’ll allow me to stay a Drafty Table Lady without it. And finally, just because I think it’s the cutest sleeping face in the world:

In the latest episode of Jackie Blue Goes To The Theatre, I saw Shockheaded Peter last night. Once again I say, if you’re in NYC, Go, Go! The show is great. It’s based on “Struwwelpeter” and is definitely a must for Edward Gorey/Roald Dahl/ Tim Burton fans. Go while the original cast is still in it (not much longer) – The Tiger Lillies are really amazing.
So an unexpected lull in work the last couple of days has left time to relax and actually KNIT. I’m up past the armholes on the mohair wrap back. You don’t need a photo. You’ve seen this sweater 90 times already.
I’m off to see some ladies at a new drafty table today. Can’t wait!
