Sore Fingers

It's chainmaille!How cool is that?I came across some chainmaille making tutorials and had to try it out (and got some really weird looks from my mom when I told her what I was doing).Just to see if I actually could.It took me 2 days to actually get the hang of it!It's harder than it looks.It's also murder on your fingertips.The end result is really cool though.

Strange Cravings...

Yeah,lately I've been having strange cravings for some of that Trekking XXL Sock yarn.
You may not think this is odd,but I friggn HATE knitting socks on anything smaller than size 10 needles to be felted.I don't really even wear socks all that much!
It was that darn iPod cozy that got me hooked on teeny tiny needles.And who can resist the call of a pretty color changing yarn?
Sooo...Any suggestions on which colorway to order up? :D

Erm,in other news,I swatched and cast on for MagKnits's (MagKnits'?MagKnit's? Whatever.) Sesame in Ravenclaw colors.
You know it had to be done! Especially since I went to that Harry and the Potters concert last week (which totally rocked the hizzy,BTW.) and saw the masses of people with House Scarves wrapped around their necks.It totally made me want my Ravenclaw Cardi.Now.
I feel so naughty.As all of my other projects sit unfinished,I cast on for more and more.I feel like a cheater.My Rogue,for instance,has the majority of a sleeve done.So close to finishing and yet I start a new project!

Awesome-ified shoes

So I was really bored last night.As I was browsing Craftster,I got this brilliant idea to paint penguins (WTF?) on my shoes.
Don't ask.That's just how my inspiration works.

So I sketched out a design,put it on my shoes,whipped out my trusty paints,and....
