Yippie. I picked up the new issue of Livingetc at Borders . This is my favorite magazine. I think British interior design and fashion magazines are a gazillion times better than American mags. As soon as I typed that I thought of Dwell, anyyyways. So basically I cut down my magazine buying so I could buy a few British magazines a month. I have a routine with my magazines , I buy , look and read through at home, take to work, look at my mags and knit on my coffee break. I have a small collection of them under my desk and they go in rotation.
Okay so I was reading , ah I mean looking, through Elle and came across this sweater .
Its a wardrobe updater, yeah baby just what I need. Actually I think I need an overhaul, feeling plain, frumpy , tomboyish, very ungirly. Yes I know a sweater is not what will make that all better. BUT it is a cool sweater and chicknits has her cutaway pattern for sale , I think I might have yarn in my stash, yes IN MY STASH, that would be perfect for it . Carrieoke made a lovely cutaway, hmmm yes this is definitly a possibility.
Oooh its time to start thinking about Christmas gifts. I might make a few handmade things this year but no lofty goals for this girl. As much as I love Christmas , like a lot of people , the days leading up to it stress me out. It is not uncommon for me to get on the plane to go whereever I'm going, relax , and by the time I get off the plane I'm sick. Need to start making lists.
