The amigurumi bug continues to bite and I’m waiting on some supplies and a new crochet book to arrive in the mail :) I’ve finished updating my amazon wishlist with some new yarns and some new crochet books. Hopefully I can drop hints to relatives and parents that I’d like those.
I also want a new ipod, but I figure chances of that are slim!
Right now I’m working on an amigurumi cat based on this pattern: Aquarius Cat PDF. I’m using a bright almost rainbow-y variegated yarn. I adore variegated yarn. It doesn’t get boring because the colors keep changing. At some point I would love to get some plain cotton yarn and dye it myself too. Then I could get exactly the colors that I want.
I got a $25 visa gift card recently and I used some of that yesterday to pick out the perfect green yarn for Cthulhu. I’ll be getting a pattern for him in the book I’m waiting on. The book is called Creepy Cute Crochet and it’s put out by Quirk Books. I managed to order it from the publisher for 35% off. I am pleased. I just hope it arrives soon.
In other, non fiber-craft, news, I just got my new glasses. They’re half glasses, rims on the top but not the bottoms.
Katie also has a new pair. We lucked out and got in on a special 2 glasses for the price of 1 pair deal. Saved us a lot of money I think in the long run.
At some point today my baby brother should be calling me here at work so that I can help him with buying his books for school. His school store is charing an insanely high amount and we’re going to work some Amazon-fu to see if we can get them for less. Wish us luck!
