Happy 60th Post Me!

Yep, sixty... For my hundredth I'll try to have something really awesome... I can't think of anything yet. Hey, I know! Give me ideas!!! Leave me a comment!

I just got back from a trip to the new Salon One at Millrise Station. I'm very impressed. I got a haircut from a guy who I think is the manager, that makes me feel special. I love hairstylists! They're so awesome! They're all 'hey pretty girl!' and thats neat.

Have a picture! (added bonus of getting to see my pretty booboos, story on that later)Yays! Okay, story on booboos now. My boyfriend and I were riding our bikes home from his house and I went off the sidewalk and it's kind of a ledge and I ran into that ledge and wiped out. I somehow twisted 90 degrees and landed on my face, I cut up my chin, my lip and had two smaller scrapes above and below my right eye. BF was freaking out and I was laughing, because I'm weird like that, I think he thought I was nuts. :) This happened on Saturday, I was mostly pissed because I'm going to a prom tomorrow and it's definitely not going to be healed by then. (This picture is from today)

But look at my hair! Isn't it awesome! For $55 I think I got my moneys worth. I think this is the most I've ever spent on a haircut, but it's also the best haircut I've ever had. Yay! Celebration!

So after I got my haircut, I went to Starbucks and got an Orange Mocha, very good, very rich. I also got an Orange Creme Coffee Cake, I haven't finished yet but it's also very tasty. I like oranges. I'm still hoping that they bring back the Lemon Raspberry Loaf. That was my all time favourite, My two favourite flavours together. Bliss!

I then went to Shoppers and got some deodorant (woo) and I decided I wanted to get a Shoppers Optimum card... It makes me feel grown up.

Tomorrow I'm going back to Salon One and getting a set of gel nails for $75. (ugh) I know this is alot, but I just need to get it done and I don't plan on spending this recent paycheck on anything but prom stuff and maybe paying some people back money that I owe them. After all this prom stuff is paid for, I'm getting me an Ipod. (80 gig all the way!)

What? What's that you say? You thought this was a knitting blog? Oh yeah... Well I have some knitting content for you too, don't worry!

I started some knee high socks last night. I know, the last thing I need to do is start a new project but I want to knit socks and would rather be making my dad's socks but I need to buy some metal circular needles so I can do two socks on two circs (I might try doing them on just one circ) and I won't be able to afford that for a while. That and I'm still not sure what pattern I want to use, I would like to use a pattern that I can use with a figure eight cast on. I'm sure I could use any pattern, but I don't know how many stitches I would need to start with, I'm thinking it's a quarter of the amount of stitches I want to end up with for a good-looking toe. Make sense? For those knitters who don't know what I'm talking about, here's a good figure eight cast on tutorial.

Anyways, here's a picture of that sock. Oh, that's a little blurry, sorry. Oh well, it's just 2x2 ribbing so far anyways.
This sock is being made using a custom pattern generated by this calculator. It's really handy and it works quite well. I'm using Austermann Step in color 03 and I'll probably have to buy another ball for the other sock. I hope I can find another ball in that color. I don't think I've seen it around. I've had this yarn since my mom and I went to Kelowna in August of last year for her High-School Reunion. Here's the post.

Well I'm gonna go for now, I'll definately have prom pictures next post!

Time for a Change

I've decided to change the title of my blog, along with my blog url. I'm now kiKNITics... it was either that or String Theory. I like science... :)

I've finished my Shetland Shawl and blocked it, I'll have pictures next post.

I've also signed up for an account on Ravelry which is what initially sparked this whole name-change thing, I needed a witty username, I started to think about how Kate Knits is a sucky blog name... Here we are.

I haven't gotten into the Ravelry thing too much yet, I'll let you know how I like it. (I think I'll like it alot)

Where the H-E-Double Hockeysticks are all my crochet hooks?!?!

I need to 'bind off very loosely'!!!

PS: If you haven't figured it out, this means I'm almost done my Shetland Triangle. I hope it doesn't turn out too small...

Proud to be Norwegian

Is that not a freaking brilliant piece of non-technology?

Just a check-in because I'm really trying to blog regularly. Next post I'll hopefully have a finished and blocked Shetland Triangle. It's coming along nicely, but it's too big now to stretch out and dry-block on the needles. So if I tried to take a picture of it, it'd be a big rumply mess... Meh.
