Today has been filled with MTV (Made, My Super Sweet 16, and Engaged and Underage--all guilty pleasures ;)) and lots of knitting!

Here's my Razor Cami so far...yep, I agree that it looks reaaallly small (kind of more like a hat than a top...). But it's I'm hopeful...

An explanation for my non-knitter friends...the red yarns are my "lifelines" so if I mess up, I can pull out the knitting and start from that much as I like the KU colors, the red yarn won't be there when I (hopefully) wear the tank top (or give it to the nearest tiny 10 year old)

I think you should...

I can't say I'm a huge Snape fan, but really, he's got bad hair, he wasn't cool at wizarding school, and they've suspected him all lame would it be if it turns out he is the evil traitor?? But who knows...I've been wrong before ( a few times ;) )

Anyway, I've been busy recently. My flowers are still surviving (minus the impatient, which has gone to that "big flower pot in the sky"). It's been pretty hot and dry here, and they are suffering a little bit because I don't water them everyday (or every other day...). Thank goodness for moisture control potting soil! Without it, I probably wouldn't have any plants at all!

I am still working on the Razor Cami...I've finished the bottom ribbing, and put in a lifeline, so if I screw it up in the lace (quite possible), I won't have to rip up the whole thing again.

My Green Thumb (maybe)

In the front

On the balcony

They're still alive right now, so that's pretty promising...but the Impatient in the front is looking not-so-hot...I'm not sure if regular watering is going to save it or if it's heading to the overgrown field behind my apartment (where all my gardening failures rest in peace ;) )

Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap Trivia

As much as I hate to bump my last post from the top of the page...I'm a little behind with my Hogwarts trivia answers...

Who says...

"Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies"?

Answer: Lord Voldermort

Swap update: I have the yarn, stitch markers, needles, and pattern all ready to go. I'm making the bag this weekend and it'll all hopefully be in the mail next Friday (15th) or the following Monday! =)

We're engaged!!!!!!!!

Details details....We were getting ready to go out to dinner. John was on the floor putting his puppy Callie's crate together, and I walked over by him to get my cell phone, and he was on his knees and said "wait, I have something for you" and pulled a ring box out of his pocket and asked me. He said he wanted to catch me off guard and he definitely did!
