Fun Times

After work today, Hubby and I went to the LYS. (I have just discovered what this acronym stands for: Local Yarn Shop; How clever.) I love the lady that runs the store. She is truly an awesome person. Always has a smile and very quick witted. That alone gets my respect.
Anyway, a purchase was made:

But wait! There is more:

Can you see that? It comes with a matching thread for re-enforcing the heels if you so choose. How excellent! The colours just screamed at me: Hey! Hey you! I'm coming home with you!
Who am I to argue with the yarn?
I have never actually re-enforced a heel. I'm very willing to give it a go. I feel motivated!
I think I made the correct choice. Napoleon approves:

We also found some cool games:

I am looking forward to playing that brawling one with some friends that are coming over tomorrow night.
A co-worker was going through some closets in her home, (as opposed to someone else's closets,) and sent these little gems my way:

I see a little funky sweater in the mix.
I am going to have one busy week end. Knitting and gaming, oh my.
I hope you are all well. Have a great night.

Frog It

I just cannot seem to make socks for little feet. They turn out miles to large. The poor little dear will swimming in them. I've frogged it three times so far.

Yarn : 3 Jocelynn: 0

I've decided to set the needles down. Back away real slow and turn to another addiction:

I love video games. This one in particular has got my utmost attention. Tricky little thing that it is, I hate to be outsmarted by a machine. I will however, be victorious.
Check out the new controller. It would seem the old one became an unwitting chew toy for someone cute and fuzzy. No. Not hubby. Think smaller. Four-legged. Yep. Napoleon. I have no idea what the attraction is to wires. I am thinking up new ways to try and make it look less tasty as I write this. Hmmmmmmm. Think. Think. Think. Nada.

I've also had to wake up a lot earlier for work. It is slowing draining away all of my creative energy. I suspect that is why I now have this "wonderful" cold.
Our mass amount of snow is supposed to be hitting the bricks this week. We are due for some rain. I wonder how many basements will be flooded? This is another reason why I like my little apartment. I live on high ground.
Take care all.
Good night.
