There's something about the end of the winter holidays that makes me want to take up knitting. XD So I've started up again, with the help of my mom (I swear, every time she sighs and takes the knitting from me to fix it/examine the problem/double-check, I'm sure she's thinking, "Y U SO DUMB, CHILD /o\" She denies it, but I know better). I still don't know which one's a purl and which one's a knit, but whatevs, this pattern seems to be working for me. :> I have too many scarves so this is going to be a bag! Exciting!

2. Photos from NYC in the cut below (not a lot of photos this time, for two main reason: 1) it was too cold to constantly dig out my camera! & 2) my camera doesn't do well at night or indoors, so the pictures didn't turn out all that well)

The Square that wasn't actually A ~Square.

Look! There's DRad's face in the lower centre!

So many people! \o\ (you would think that so many people would generate sufficient body heat to keep me warm while waiting in line. WELL, YOU WOULD BE WRONG. :| THE COLD ~SEEPED INTO MY ~BONES \O\)

Rockefeller Christmas tree~

Giant Christmas balls~

Statue of Liberty

The statue again (see small figure, on the right side) under a ~dramatic sky.

3. There is no third point. Oh, wait, yes there is. New SPN tonight! I think it's about a hooker, or babysitting, or both (or maybe it's about Alec's One True Love crossovering and turning into a monster hooker, idk). I would rather it be about a ~unicorn~.

Bring it over tomorrow when we watch SPN! I'm working on a project that uses basket weave (that's one of the names for the pattern you're using) and we our needles can go clack-clack-clack together, all merry like!

Your knitting looks very pretty! I used to knit (mostly afghans), but I haven't done it in years. Good luck making your bag.

Thanks for posting the Christmas tree picture. I've never seen the tree in person. I'd love to go to NY at Christmas some year.

*must remember to download SPN on Saturday morning* Although, after the last episode I'm not all that excited about the show. They need to win me back. ;-)

I've only been once, but NY looks even more ridiculously crowded during the holiday season. It makes me want to punch people. But I'm glad you had fun! <3

Your knitting posts always make me want to take up knitting. XD

Wow, I had no idea Times Square was so busy! Like, I knew it was popular but there's like SO many people. How does one even walk in that? lol

Christmas balls made me giggle. :P

I wish I could knit, but I suck.

The photos are awesome! I actually really like the dramatic sky :DDDD

knitting! i've always wanted to take up knitting but i've never gotten around to actually doing it. PERHAPS I SHOULD. i hear it's very stress relieving :D

ooo, your knitting looks so pretty! :) I crocheted a shawl-thingy that was in almost the same colour blue for my mom for Christmas, and I realized as I was making it that I was so out of crocheting shape! My hands got all cramped. /o\

Your pictures are great. I love the ones of all the crowds in Times Square -- er, Not-a-Square. ;)

Haha, well, I'd like to learn knitting one of these days. We should ~trade skillz~ XD

My parents are very reluctant to wear anything that I've made XDD lol, oh dear. *pets you* I would wear that scarf, just sayin'!
