The bag is perfect as the wallet. I have always loved red and its always my second chose of color instead of pink. so pretty.
These are Don’s socks almost finished.
In fact as of right now all I have to do is the 2x2 ribbing and he has a new pair of socks. This pick was taken a couple days ago.
Then I received this pretty Hello Kitty compact mirror in the mail yesterday from my friend Janet AKA SuperStashMe on Raverly.. She is the sweetest friend that is always mailing me Hello Kitty items she finds in the UK. She is my email buddy and Raverly friend that I am so happy I have made. Its great to have people you can vent to and share the good times with. I didn’t have a mirror for my purse so this is perfect for me . Thank you Janet.
On the the knitting front I have decided to make a pair of Black Rose Socks. I scored this
from Raverly yesterday for 5.75 each and my local store charges 5.99. I could not get this color at my local yarn shop so I bought it yesterday and expect it here next week to start my Black rose socks. I thought it was the perfect color and price since I am a poor woman now.
I hope to find a job soon because I just am worried about bills and yarn. Not bills and food, but Yarn.. No crazy the brain works. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

So how is everyone doing? Sorry to be MIA but I have been under the weather. This past Monday my right big toe was all swollen and I could not walk on my foot. I was in so much pain that Superman took me to the family doctor. After waiting like 2 hours I was finally called back and the doctor asked me a ton of questions, looked at my foot for like a minute and said that I had Gout. Really, Gout… he wrote me a script , took blood and said the test results would be back the next day. He wanted to stick a big needle in my foot to test for gout and I flat out refused that offer! I had no doubt this guy had no clue what the hell he was taking about and I would just go home and suffer. Well, that’s just what happened. I took this medicine he gave me and it said right on the bottle, “take until pain is relieved or you have nausea,vomiting or diarrhea. Right off I didn’t want to take the meds because I didn’t want to be sick on top of having my foot feel like it was broke, but I took it anyway. The next day after taking this stuff I was so sick the whole day with every symptom that was on that bottle!!! I was so made I could not stand it. Finally the doctor called and said my test result said I don’t have Gout!! the damn doctor wants me to come back in to take x-rays of my foot now! really??? you should have done that the first time I was there you moron. so now I am able to walk on it so I’m not going back. I think I just jammed it cleaning house and that’s that. Its really messed up my work outs and diet for sure.. I'm all out of whack. The the moral of the story is this. If you have a gut feeling that you know whats wrong , your prob right.. Doctors are just stupid and its really hard to find a good one. I’m just glad my foot is not broke.

On the knitting front I am working on a pair of socks for Don. There were to be for me but they ended up way to big for my foot. He is pretty super excited about them.
The yarn I am using for these socks is Happy Feet and the color way is #28
Last knit I went to my local knit groups monthly k1p2 party and saw one of the ladies making some amazing fingerless mitts in bright pink and blue!! let me just say I almost didn’t take them off . So I will be making them very soon. The pattern which you can get free on Raverly is called the Jasper Mitts http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/jaspers-fingerless-mittens
On the last bit of news, I was told Wednesday from my employer that my job will be ending this Sunday, which is today. They had a massive layoff and I happen to be one of the lucky ones to get axed. I’m not very happy about it,but I guess I will try and draw unemployment till I can find a day job that will fit around my family’s schedule.
On The Blackberry front.. I read on BGR http://www.bgr.com/2011/01/14/rims-2011-blackberry-lineup/ that there are 3 new blackberry’s coming out!! The Storm 3 and a new Bold with the form factor of the original bold 9000.. I am so excited about both of these I can’t stand it. take a look at the link because there are pictures. I guess all the hype over Verizon getting the Iphone 4 has everyone wanting to ditch Blackberry all together. I know a lot of my friends have gone to Iphones or Androids.
Hope everyone has a great week and enjoys this post..
