due to my jewish bubba worrying heritage, i worry about everyone. i actually talked to my friend's aunt, who she is very close to. i just need to back off. she is a hard person to back off of.
we got out to dinner with my inlaws, which was nice. it was my first venture out of the house all week, i think. that is insane. i am not sure. i am a shut in, i think. and winter makes me even worse. i don't want to go anywhere in the winter.
i have been being reasonably productive, lots of yarns to update...to-morrow...i swear it, but this one at the top is a bit of something christmas. it has tinsel and glitter and candy striping and it is soft and fluffy like snow. i am going ot do some snow ones too...that will be gorgeous! i can see them in my mind....
i incorrectly labeled a few packages and got them back, which is so annoying, so i have to go out in the shitty weather and send em out. i know, boo hoo, shut the hell up, normal people leave their house all the time. i never said i was normal. i am a delicate flower, i tell you! we are from not such good stock. well, the stock was ok, it may have just been a bad genetic pairing. like pears are great, chocolate is great....together? not so great. just not. i really need to figure out a system of packing and shipping and keeping addresses and knowing what went out and when and what is going out, waiting for a check to clear...you know what i mean...i am very bad at these things and then stuff happens like it goes out in a timely manner and i send it to the wrong address. not. good. business. i could be like lew from little barn and tell people it went out priority 9 months ago and must have gotten lost in the mail, again. bullshite!
sugar boutique sold some of my stuff and were interested in a spring line...i don't think i told you that yet, so that is fun. loads of money? no. but a gorgeous place that i am proud to have my things in. i think we have very similar taste in color and textures. i feel like she appreciates what i do. my mom in law asked if i wanted to knit doggie sweaters for their doggie booth at the mall, if you live in my area and go to the westmoreland mall and have pups, it is called just dogs and is super cute...stop by...anyway, they have machine made sweaters that they sell, and i don't think that even for a little dog sweater, people would be willing to pay what they would need to cost, i need to get a good pattern and see how long it takes to make the small pup ones. i mean, a 4 lb dog is pretty damn small. really. it may not take that long. the other idea i had was to use recycled sweaters and cut them up and use them as fabric, so it is just sewing and not knitting. i actually enjoy having knitting projects that i need to get going, that are stacked up and ready to go. you know? so i will try one out and see how it looks, and if people are interested in it once they hear the price. any advice would be appreciated.
i feel all crazy and can't sleep, but feel tired and i know that if i get up and spin, i will not go to sleep at all. so i am trying to just stay in bed and watch tv. i may take a shower to try to get sleepier. i have the skin crawling ordeal, so i may just need a new pain patch, but jake is sleeping and it is hard to put it on your own back. straight and smooth.
ok...off to shower and decompress. i feel fat now, imagine what i will feel like when i decompress. woah!
