This pic is of Jen and myself, we went out on the Thursday of my birthday week which also happened to be her birthday week. Hers was on Friday. We went to Cherae Heights Indian Casino because Jen's mom (who also happens to be the owner of MLYS) told us we could get $30 cash from them for our birthdays. The catch, you have to gamble for like 5 minutes. Well, I really thought it was a trick because of the having to gamble business, but it wasn't. We gambled on penny machines for about 5 minutes and voila, 15000 casino points which were then redeemed for 30 smackers. I even got my $3 bucks back out of the machine I was playing.
After all that we went to Blue Lake Casino to karaoke. We had a way good time. Jen got up to sing, I sang (of course I sang, karaoke was my idea), we danced, and had happy birthdays (and many tequilas).
I finished the SF 49er colored clogs for Q. He loves them and can hardly wait for them to dry. I have started a new sock. I'm doing it toe up and magic loop. No lace pattern on this one since it is for a sock class I'm going to be teaching over at MLYS. I was going to have the class do Marnie's Wyverns, but Janice(the owner) said to keep it simple, so I will. So there. I didn't do alot of short rows for the toe (8 on a side) to make more space for my Fred Flinstone toes. I'm likeing the results so far. What else have I been up to....Additionally, I have been working on a scarf. What can I say about it. It is made with Bernat Disco (I got it for free in the mail, act now, and you too can have this yarn that will probably arrive in a color you don't like. The offer is only good until the end of the year.) and Lion Brand Woolease thick and quick (I think). It is almost finished, I ran out of yarn. Wouldn't you know it, my "free" Bernat Disco yarn, in a color I didn't even like, would end up costing almost $20 to work up. Have I said yet that I cannot believe I'm using novelty yarn. There, I said it.
Here is a picture of Kia (Maltese) and Bella (Pug-huahua, yep, you got it, Pug and Chihuahua) at MLYS. They are soooo cute.
(I think there is a spelling error in this post but I can't find the damn thing. Grrr.)
