Just back from stitches..here is a rather fuzzy pic of some of the yarn I purchased mostly from the Haku vendors...I spent an obscene amount of money with them...they had the most unusual fibers...steel wool yarn,bamboo...metal....I"m going to start working on something tonight...I'm sooo excited... as you can probably tell by my pooche's name(Yohji) I dig Japanese culture..I thin they are some of the most innovative artist and designers..they epitomize "thinking outside the box"..I didn't spend all my money at the show...actually I had a lot of money left over because I ended up not staying at the resort...they had major problems getting the rooms ready..so I stayed with s friend who lives in chicago...now if the resort hadn't been such a drive from the city..I would have shopped another day...but all is not lost..there is always the internet,lol
Just completed a bracelet ..knitted out of fine guage wire..adorned with horn and sterling silver...

I feel a Wonder Woman moment coming on.....It seems that I'm on a wristband roll..or shall I say... instant knitting gratification..I say we start an online Wonder Woman island..to gain access to the island you have to knit a wristband and trade it with another member,lol...ok now who wants to make our button logo,lol......
Looks like Fall is gonna be FUNKY!!lol
I started practicing knitting bobbles remember this...
...I said last spring that I wanted a scarf with bobbles..so it was said let it be done,lol.....

I'm feeling the need to evolve my "look"...what has me sooo inspired..these fierce boots right here!!! now these boots are EXPENSIVE!!..and since I don't want to blow the money I want to spend at the Stitches convention...I need to get creative..so I have come up with a way to doctor the two pair of wedge heeled boots I already own..I can knit little furry anklewarmers,lol...don't laugh..because I'm gonna do it!!..and I can wear it with a version of this I love all the hanging ribbons...I want to wear Black,Black,black this fall..with only a tiny bit of color thrown in...first up to be knitted...a chunky black sweater of my own design..the yarn for which I shall shop for at stitches in chicago...I realize that a girl just has to be true to herself...I like dressing "crazy" and it's not because I'm starving for attention,lol...but all that medicore sameness is boring....my dressing is ART...and just because I'm stranded in the midwest(for now) doesn't mean that my flow has to be MIDWEST,lol....someone great said "that it all started with an idea"...I will amend that to say "that it all started with an outfit and with that she changed her life,lol"...don't forget to tell em' LOCQUEEN said...uh huh...lol
Other inspirational sightings..note the big scarfs...I ADORE QUIRKY!!LOL..and hanging strings,lol
And last but not least my favorite tall red headed wicked knitter Glampyre!!! (can I please have(barter) that freeform shawl when you are finished,lol...)
