Dumb and dumber, really

May 6, 2007

Dumb thing I did – I meant to send a wee birthday package for Ariel and I wrote wrong street name. So, after like couple of weeks of it floating around somewhere between here and where she is, and it finally came back to me earlier in the week. Oh how brilliant of me!

This really really should have been in her hands by now, long ago. But I guess I have to send it again later. And yes, I’ll have to get new batch of chocolate truffles.

Dumber: I don’t know what possessed me to somehow volunteer myself to make a pair of pajama pants for one of the girls I work with. She handed me the fabric, pattern, and even a spool of thread. The pattern itself doesn’t seem too hard, after all, it’s only 2 pieces (left and right legs) and you sew those together. But here’s the problem. I can’t tell if the lines that’s on the pattern sheet, if it meant to be lines I’m supposed to cut or sew. I have no idea. I never sewn anything from a pattern before (we all know how well I follow the directions, right? Cooking, knitting, etc). If I can find someone to tell me what it is, just to reassure myself, I’d be much happier person and I’d get it started right now, but until that happens, I may have to bang my head against the wall couple more times. (But at least there is a good news – as you may have noticed, I did get my sewing machine fixed after about a year of letting it just sit in the corner of the room!)

And here’s a news o’ fantastico: I got a lovely package from Tania. Isn’t she grand? Now, let see if I can decipher the fancy schmancy french knitting directions. I think I can, I think I can – and that’s what I said about cooking, and see, I haven’t killed anyone from feeding my concoctions…. yet.


And speaking of cooking, now I really have to dip my hands at “cooking” those sock yarn, now that I have a whole batch of them from my lovely. Should I start with Wilton’s and/or Kool-Aid? or should I attempt at acid dye? Either way, I still need to get some stuff before I even dream of starting dying yarn. I still need to go get a scale, a pot, and some sort of dye – whichever I decide to use. Oh it’s going to be so much fun!
