Laura You So Pretty

(10 points if you can name the title reference)

Remember how I got a DSLR camera for Christmas (oh hey thanxs Sarah for the recommendation and Alyssa for encouraging me to take the plunge.) and how I promised myself that this was the end of lame photo booth pictures on my blog. Resolution fail. But a post with lame pictures is better than a naked post right (right Liz?)? So check out my Laura short row sweater, pattern via Purlbee!

I know your thinking it so I am just going to say it, this looks like a pregnancy picture. But I got to give you guys 360 views.

I love Purlbee and all their awesome patterns which are even great because they are free. I really want to make this clutch next, I have all the yarn ready to checkout but now I feel like I have to justify buying all this yarn. So if you have any (justifications, that is) please let me know.

I promise I'll be back soon, and with better pictures...

For Auld Lang Syne

We two have paddled in thestream,
from morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

(it kind of pains me not to put up the Sufjan version, but you can listen to it here.)

For me 2011 was ushered out with dancing in a beautiful 1950s dress from Xtabay which was nice, but 2012 got off to a great start with a beautiful wind storm which I watched from the comfort of my wooly socks and a motorcycle gang that was right behind me on the freeway on the way to church, Happy New Year.
