The Naughty Knitter Strikes Back!

I know I have been a very naughty knitter, very very naughty. I haven't knitted since? Hmmm quite some time, I haven't eaten chocolate either and my new Matt which was his last PPV was crap as I remembered so it isn't really a good new Matt....

I found in my Inbox today a e-mail to tell me that the NEW Knitty Surprises are up, I do like the doll outfits they are very cute!

I am thinking about knitting the following projects are being contemplated for completion.
1. Alien Illusion Scarf - I need to buy more yarn!
2. Italian Hooded Scarf - I need to buy more yarn for this one too!
3. Angora Supreme Hooded Scarf with Pockets - I need to buy new needles I broke one.
4. Faux Fur hooded Scarf - just needs to be picked up and worked on. Hmmmmmm.
5. The other Gauntlet from Vogue's first issue of Knit 1. Cindy I don't know if I've thanked you yet for telling me about the Kings Meadows Newsagent yet - but thankyou! I will have to get out and have a look at it.

I rented the second half of seasons 2 and 3 of Buffy from the video store yesterday. I owned Season 1, I got the first half of season 2 for Christmas. Then I trailed all over town trying to buy the second half of season 2. I ended up buying the first half of season 3. It was half the price of the second half od season 2.
I do love my Buffy. I think I'm a Willow, I'd LOVE to be Faith but I'd happily settle for beng Buffy.

I went to the gym yesterday, I also went Saturday but I got there half an hour before closing so you know....But it's already starting to pay off. My butt is starting to look fantastic - maybe I should make a knit skirt? Or learn to crochet and crochet one. I think the pattern book is called Artrageous Crochet and it has this very cool Flamenco Skirt in it. I like it lots.

Speaking of crochet, I notice Spotlight are now giving away crochet pattern leaflets with yarn purchases. Is this a sign of things to come? I know Debbie Stoller who wrote Stitch N' Bitch and Stitch N' Bitch Nation has currently in the works a book on crochet. Knitting was the new yoga perhaps crochet is the new knitting?

Until next time,
A bona fide Buffy loving read head and damn proud of it.

Diva Las Vegas is out. I have it right here now on the tv watching it. Also watched Blade 3 last night. Was rather impressed by the Game.
P.S did you see my hair on my blog?

Buffy? I lurve Buffy. I have all of Buffy on DVD, all of Angel except for the very expensive last season. Have you see Firefly? Got that from Amazon. Serenity, the film is out this year. Oh, Joss wrote this too. No 'actual' magazines at the KMart newsagency, the nice man is ordering them for me. Crochet is good, but it doesn't hold it's shape the way knitting does. In saying this, however, my nan found this no barrier when crocheting my dresses to wear to Mass on Sundays!!! I think crochet needs lining for clothes, but for bags, scarves, hats etc it is excellent.
If the Apocalypse comes : beep me!!
Cindy, Harki and Peri.

I love the new knitty and there is a pattern on there called soleil which didn't grab my attention at all first time around. However after finding it on a blog as a KAL and saw all the different versions it is definately worth a look and the photo on knitty does not do it justice at all.
