I usually don't knit for people, because I noticed nobody seems to like the things I make... lol~ :P For that reason, I only make for myself. :X Since I don't have the money to buy gifts this year, I decided to make things for them. The past two days I spent knitting an arm warmer for my oldest sister-in-law. I hope she likes it! :X
Here's a picture of my recent project during the process: Yup, I used four needles! :P It can get confusing, but that's the only way to go in circular movements. Here's how the final product looks! I hope you can see the chain in the middle of the arm warmers. I know you cannot see this, but there's a single hole on the side of each arm warmer. The hole is for the person to put their thumb through it. ;)
All I needed is a model to show you how the arm warmers looks like... lol~ Tobey volunteered! Okay, okay I forced him to model the arm warmers... hehe~ :P I made him model the one I made for myself last year. I didn't want him to try on a gift and make it stink... hehe~ :P
I know it was unexpected that I deleted my blog out of the blue. I apologize!!! The reason why I deleted my blog was to get rid of temptation. I could have just kept my blog and not post, but I noticed I still logged on to see the blogroll. :X I thought it was best to get rid of temptation (not seeing other people's blog) so I'm not tempted to buy makeup. I realized even with deleting my blog, I still bought makeup *sigh*. I came to realization I'm ADDICTED to makeup!!! :( I'll be the first to admit it... lol~ :X I also came to realization I like talking about makeup, and for that reason I am back to blogging (Yes Cinthia I cannot get away from blogging you are right! :P ). Now to the present, I am restarting my blog from scratch... lol~ I'll tell you something if you do delete your blog, make sure you save your pictures. :X
Anyways, this past weekend I went to the Stila warehouse sale and I must say it was an adventure... lol~ I woke up early to go there and I was shocked to see a line at 7:50 a.m! The first thing that went through my head was there sure are a lot of crazy people just like me... lol~ :P I had to park three blocks away, walk over there, rewalk back to my car because you're not suppose to bring a purse, walk back to the line, and wait outside for an hour while it's sprinkling. Even with all that, I still thought it was worth it. Who doesn't like saving money! :)
Now for the things I got for myself: The holiday 2008 set (I believe it's the fall collection), Front Cover Look #2, baked eyeshadow trio, and a lipgloss. In the holiday set, it comes with 3 eyeshadow, blush, mascara, lip glaze, and a necklace. Here's how the Front Cover Look #2, baked eyeshadow trio, and lipgloss looks like outside of the box or bubble wrap. The inside of the Front Cover Look #2 which has 3 eyeshadow and a blush (bottom left), and the baked eyeshadow trio.
Yes, I bought a lot of neutral colors for myself. :P
