Shhhhh...it's a secret!

So here's the skinny...

* I found the code that I was looking for after some diligent researching. Stay tuned for the changes.
* I'm a little bit further on my socks. Woo hoo.
* I found yarn at big lots for $ .79! No that's not a typo. 79 cents a ball. They only had two colors, but lucky for me I liked them. So I bought 7 balls of cotton candyish pink, and 7 balls of turquoise. Altogether it came to $11.06. So my girlfriend gave me the best idea. She was saying since I could decide which color to use for the Fad Classic, I should do both. I wasn't sure about the stripes. I decided that I would just knit the vest with both strands held together, but then I remembered I own a hand spindle (from a previous attempt at spinning). So now, I have the prettiest cotton candy colored ball of yarn. I can wait to start. I'll post the pics later.
* I don't have it in my progress bar section yet, but you should see my vest. I'm like 85% done witht he back. I'm using the Campalmi yarn. It's going so fast. I can't wait to finish it. I want to have it finished by next Saturday. I'm going to take it with me to Miami.

Oh yeah, I'm going to South Beach (Oh! In my wife b OH!).

Sorry, I've been singing Grills since I decided I was going. Speaking of the b-day. I'll be the big 30 this year! Dun dun dun {{gasp}} I'm no where near where/what I thought I'd be at this time. And honestly, I don't care. What the hell did I know back then, anyway. I think I'm going to like 30. Just saying it to someone seems to hold some type of authority. It's like 'Yeah, I've been in this world a whole 30 years.' Of course that means absolutely nothing, but it's what I say to myself when i'm thinking about how old I am.

I think I'm ready to design something now. Being that summer is a coming, I'm going to try to design either a cotton vest or some funky doodle tank. I saw stitches in the knitting over the edge book that I want to try. This should be interesting, especially since I can barely follow a pattern. Yeah well, what are you going to do.

And last but not least...... SECRET PAL IS HERE! Finally I remembered in time to sign up. I'm sooooo excited. I'm going to put my questionaire in the side bar for future reference. For now, here's a little about the Viesely Piecely.

On knittyboard they have tons of advice how to make changes to blogger template. I can't wait to see the changes. Although, I am fascinated, because you have a beautiful template/design. I love the WIP bars.
