Withdrawals…

So, classes started, and between classes, homework, and not being a complete recluse, I have absolutely no free time. I’m attempting to crochet my friend a bag to hold her nail polishes for her birthday (which is TOMORROW) and I’m hoping I can finish it on time. *crosses fingers* Hopefully, as I get into the swing of things, I’ll be able to find more time to make stuff.

But despite my lack of time to knit, I’ve been having fun making other things… like friends! It’s kind of crazy how many new people I’ve met in the last two weeks. I didn’t think I was bad with names before, but it’s been so hard to keep everyone straight. Especially when you never know if you are even going to see some of these people again. I really need a mental camera–then I can take a picture of the person’s face and attach a name tag.

Anyways, I will try to get more done on that darn Dalek… I honestly haven’t touched it in about two weeks. I don’t even remember where I am in the project… it’s my new priority.

Hello there!

Sorry it’s been so long. School started, and put a damper on crafting, as well as just about everything else. Two AP classes=TONS of homework. Since the strawberry key chains I have also done watermelon slices, but I’m not quite happy with how they’ve come out. I made up the pattern myself, because I couldn’t find one, and I think I know why I couldn’t-it’s really hard!! I still love the strawberrries. So, I have also been (slowly) working on my huge sweater, and last night my hand was cramping again. Not fun… My tank top is also coming alng nicely. Still looks like a blob, but I might post a pic anyways so you can see the pattern. I wore the grey one I made the other day, and got quite a few comments on it. :D
So, I’d say the most exciting thing that has happen recently is Mameshiba. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, take a few minutes to watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GL48UFJN3h8&feature=youtube_gdata_player . You will thank me!! Anyways, I have decided that it is my new mission in life to try and make one of each. There are twenty. I’m not sure if I can, but I’m going to try. I don’t know how I’ll do the glasses, but I’ll worry about that when I get there. For now, I started number one, the green pea, but I need more 6mm eyes, so I’m stuck. I ordered some, as well as cell phone charm straps. I’m going to make these guys not phone charms!! Stay updated, because I’m going to be posting some in Etsy as soon as I can.
Outside of crafting, I have some exciting news. My sister, my best friend, and I all auditioned for the after school play, Sylvia. (link to Wikipedia page: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylvia_(play) ) And there are only four female roles. So… WE ALL MADE IT!! I couldn’t believe it. Now I’m going to have even less time, but it is so worth it!!
Well, that’s about it. My classes are all really fun, and I am starting to prepare for college applications… Sort of. :) I’ll check back in soon, I hope.
