more books more books!

May 31, 2007

I have just literally drooled over Victorian lace today. I did hire out a gathering of lace from the library not so long back and its nice but not a patch on VLT. *wipes away spittle*

I already had this book at home. It was my first knitting book and very good it is too.

My new other books are:

and of course what I said earlier VLT:

I have the books now all I need is the needles ( have most of these via donation from family), the yarn ( yes yes I do have some stash but a gal always needs more), the time etc. Well at least I can spend endless hours drooling over patterns I may one day turn in to something special. At least I can look at the books in my break times at work without people looking at me as if I’m odd. I did try knitting at lunch in the office but I’m not sure it went down that well. I swear they all think I’m a tad loopy, I think I’m happy with that.


we will go to the wedding

May 31, 2007

Scotty’s brother is getting married soon. All the holiday is booked, my brother is “cat sitting” as he lives round the corner, and we have a hotel booked too.

Now I don’t get to go to many weddings, I thinks its because I’m an insular sort, I don’t let that many people very close to me. Although there are many I would call close friends and good colleagues and great Internet mates. These last two are the sorts where making a wedding list is going to get complicated. Where do the friendships start after chatting on line? I should know these answers as I am going to marry someone I met on the Internet. Also which colleagues to invite without offending others. Its all so confusing, although the other night I did ask again when are you going to marry me? Scotty replied “next year isn’t it? I’m sure we decided on that” which put me at ease. Now if only I had a magic wand to make it all organised.

oh and for Kingdom of Loathing fans I’m in ronin and have been since Monday. I have managed to get it so today I will blossom out of ronin like a swan. I managed to prepare really quite well, most camp ground equipment has been placed. Never ascend without a meat maid in your locker! I wonder if that sounds as mad to non Kol’ers as I think it does.
