It is the beginning of July now and I’m slowly realizing how busy I’m going to be. This week of course is the obligatory Fourth of July festivities. Then next week begins helping my uncle get ready for Pennsic. Yes my family is a bunch of nerds but that’s okay because otherwise I wouldn’t fit in and I wouldn’t love them for who they are! Then the next week is the Jason Mraz concert that I’m hoping to buy tickets to next week! I’ve waited a long time for certain people or groups to come to Indianapolis: Eddie Izzard (that was AWESOME), Jason Mraz is coming and one day when they need money again, I hope to see System of a Down. And since Weezer put out a new album this summer they should be touring soon too! That would be awesome! Okay so after the Jason Mraz concert is the Rush concert. This will be my third time seeing them and I didn’t even have to buy the tickets! And then I have three weeks of nothing then a wedding with Troy, my boss and then 3 days to pack and go back to school! When I look at it that way, my summer seems really short….sad….
Now for something completely different!
So my friend Nick gave me a sweater that he had found somewhere and told me to do what ever I wanted with it! So I looked at it. It was cute. An American Eagle sweater which probably cost more than any thing I’ve ever bought to wear. Looked at the tag. Holy crap. 100% wool! I looked closer at this sweater and decided it wasn’t THAT cute. So I took it apart. And the best part…it was double stranded so I have twice as much yarn! Also another bonus: it just happens to be light fingering weight yarn! So I have roughly 1000 yards of a brown, 100% wool sock yarn! So what am I going to do with all of this? Well make socks with it, duh. My latest and greatest project: well I realized that I love mismatched socks. Purposely mismatched socks. So, I’m going to make 4-6 (or more) socks that are all the same color but different patterns! Right now I’m working on the Pomatomus sock by Cookie A and plan on another Cookie A design to have a theme with this first pair. I’m thinking it’s going to be the ever so popular Monkey socks. For the second pair, I’m thinking the Snicket sock and something else (links to Ravelry)…but I just don’t know what yet…Any suggestions? Something easy, but looks good, and free, definitely free. See I’m a poor college student…Free is good.
K, it’s lunch time now and I’m hungry…
