I have to say that I am love with my two new pairs of shoes. I hit a sale. I couldn't help myself, they were stunningly gorgeous and the best part, the red ones look so good on my feet. Woohoo! Then I found out that I had a credit with my shoe of the month club and I was able to get the pair I wanted but, couldn't afford. Yippeee! They are gorgeous heels with a peep toe and a cute little bow on top. They are pink! Not cotton candy pink, they are dark pink. Or she puts out pink. They are F-me shoes.
Here I am sitting on 40 and I guess I shouldn't be buying sexy shoes at my age but, you know, there is something about a pair of sexy heels that I can't resist. I never have been able to resist them. Maybe I am a slut at heart, who knows. I am a yarn ho and everyone knows that. I am also a shoe slut.
I am working on my shawl and it is coming along nicely. I am on the last quarter of the increase section and about to enter the lace zone. I am so ready for it. My cool green shawl is done and if you want pics you have to go to Drooling Over Yarn 2 to see it. I wrap it around my neck and go. I have had more compliments on that little shawl. I am proud of it. It took me 9 days to knit it and then I blocked it for 2 so, pretty much 11 days total. Would I knit it again? Possibly for someone else and in a different color and a different yarn. I have several sitting on my desk that I could use.
I am trying to get onto the DAR member website and print out my eMQ for the chapter so, we will have a hard copy. So far, they are down again for another night. I am thinking there are so many chapter Regents filling it out that it is swamped. I finished it this morning and didn't print it out for our records. I thought to go back tonight and print it out. Nope, not happening. So, I will take care of it tomorrow.
Just the usual things going on with that. Our chapter is growing by leaps and bounds. I am happy to say. So far we have been lucky with it.
I have a line up of people needing socks over here and I am procrastinating on it. I have no idea why I don't want to knit socks...I want to knit shawls. I am in the mood to knit something lacy and really feminine. :)
