Last week I decided I needed a lime green cowl after having seen an outfit on pinterest that featured a lovely lime green cowl paired with a long sleeved gray shirt and jeans. I of course have lime green yarn because well I was working on a lime green and purple blanket for one of my Sons and he has changed his mind about the colors....let's put that soft lime green yarn to use!
|Can't tell the color well here.|
Ok next up, my Sister and I have this running joke and I ran across this pretty little tea cup and saucer set that had the word whore written on it, well since it was Tuesday night and I couldn't very well get it before work the next day I did the next best thing I came up with as a lovely gift for my Sister to come into work to on Wednesday. I made her a bracelet! (Photographed on the lime green cowl, showing a much better representation of the color)
Know on with other things keeping me busy! Since I didn't get any of the DVD's off of my Amazon wish list for Christmas I ordered a couple myself! First up, Doctor Who the complete first series with my favorite Doctor!
I second one is Lennon Naked which of course stars Christopher Eccleston as John Lennon. Never been Beatles fan really, a couple songs here and there but I do find John Lennon most interesting after having seen a movie a few years ago that I can't remember that name of but was about how the band came together....anyway John Lennon...Christopher Eccleston AND Andrew Scott... figured it couldn't hurt to get it and check it out. I did try to get it through Netflix or anywhere really but I'm guessing being as it's a BBC show hard to come by over here in the US. Anyway I wasn't disappointed and very much enjoyed it.
So DVD's to watch and my new Roku that I did get for Christmas means hanging out lounging on my bed!
Pink and tan hat all done except for the gold flower, again slacking on getting it out! I do hope it stays cold in England long enough for her to wear it when I finally get it in the mail!
Now I decided yesterday that I wanted my own Doctor Who scarf....yes the one that is ridiculously long worn by the 4th Doctor. I did some research on the colors and went out and got some yarn last night. Now according to doctorwhoscarf.com I'm sure that my colors are a bit off, but it's not meant to be an exact replica anyway, because well I don't want a scarf that is 11 inches wide and I am not knitting it! So I am following the measurements of each stripe and color and going along from there. Mine is only 4 inches wide but will be ridiculously long and I can't wait!
Of course the colors don't look all that correct in the picture but they are pretty good in person I think, though watching a bit of the 4th Doctor last night, the chocolate brown is quite a bit browner then he is wearing! Oh well, I don't care in the least and so far it's making me very happy to work on!
So there we are a full a complete update of things around here. At least for the moment...the scarf will have more pictures as this day goes on!
