so, it seems i didn't make it to test the "sweater curse," i was unlucky enough to deal with the "sock curse" i guess. i got one sock done. ah well, he can have one sock, i'm sure as hell not going through the effort of knitting him another one now. he also only has one glove. maybe i should just frog them and use the yarn for something else.
its not all bad, now i have time to work on the puppy from knitted toys by zoe mellor for my niece (we decided she's having a girl, we don't know for sure yet, but here's hoping). i'm using neither the recommended yarn nor needle size and i was figuring that it would come out a little big, which would be fine, but it is coming out a little small. i bought way too much yarn for this project and it is knitting up pretty quickly so i am thinking about making one for my friends' baby's birthday.
in other news: my car still isn't running but i am hoping to get it fixed soon so i can get myself out of the house for a while and have some fun. the bus is not fun. i do, however, have great friends who drove almost 2 hours to pick my sorry ass up and take me back to their house so we could have some good times. we had a lot of fun and ended up calling our other friend because we missed him so much (yes, we were inebriated) and at some point came up with the craftiest (not crafty like me, crafty like boris from bullwinkel) plan to get him to move to california again. part of the plan involves telling him about the plan. wish us luck.
and last, but not least, a certain mom of a good friend of mine needs to get an etsy shop up and i am more than happy to help out, wink wink, nudge nudge.
