Yowza!

Thanks to everyone who has signed up for the Flip Flop Swap. If someone who signed up did not get an email from me, please let me know! Happy flip flop shopping!

This might come as shocking, but I actually have some knitting content to share! I haven't made any more progress on my Jaywalker yet, but I have started a new sock. I present-my Pomatamus sock. I'm knitting this using the Project Spectrum Sock Yarn Swap yarn I got from my May pal, Kelly.




The second picture is truer to the color, but more blurry.

In crochet news, yes you read that correctly, I made a flower!



This is the first of a long chain of flowers that form a scarf. I read through the "how-to" section last night and practiced making rows of different stitches. I practiced crocheting in a cirlce. Finally, I decided to give the flower a try. It wasn't nearly as hard as I'd thought it would be. I'm really excited to try the other types of flowers in the chain.

In Project Spectrum Purpleness, my mom and I made a skirt last week. Actually, I should say my mom made the skirt and I helped, a little. She just whipped it together with no pattern, just going on what I said I wanted. I didn't have anyone to take a picture of me wearing it, so you'll just have to use your imagination. It's a paneled skirt, that has an a-line shape to it, but it's a little on the full side for an a-line. Make sense?

I also decided to celebrate Project Spectrum on my toes...



Earlier this week I decided to get a haircut. Usually I just get a trim, maybe add some layers, but I decided to jump off the deep end this time.
(Sorry for the blurry pic-mirror photo-taking is not my strongest point)


I'm still getting used to how little shampoo I have to use now, and the whole blowdrying takes half the time thing, but I like it. It's much cooler for this unbelievable heat we've been having!

What a random post of odds and ends. Work has been really hectic this week and my sleep pattern is a little bit askew as a result. Brain doesn't function as well on an hour of sleep, but the hands still work to knit!

The potmatamus pattern looks great with that yarn! I'm so glad your liking it. Your skirt is really pretty and I love the purple nail polish!

Your Pomatamus looks so nice! I've been thinking about knitting them myself as well.
