Short Story Writing Month

Because I really don’t have any time on my hands, I’ve signed up for Short Story Writing Month it’s kind of a prelude to NaNoWriMo and it should be fun. I’m trying to write more.

I got my Ravelry Summer Camp Swap package today, but I can’t find the doodad that makes my camera and my computer be friends at the moment, so pictures tomorrow! :D

Oh, and I think the second volume of the Bookswap will start off around the 21st of September, so be thinking. (maybe a back-to-school theme? So classics?)

Swaps

Thanks to Ravelry I’m now in two swaps that end before October. I’m excited, and while I know that my packages aren’t the best-best, since I am poor college kid, i have fun with them.

The Ravelry summer camp swap will be awesome, and the Caffine addicts swap will be fun too. :) (and Bunkmate, probably my school address!)

I just got revealed for my LJ Secret Pal (yay!) and that was a great way to spend the summmer. Missed the deadline for Secret Pal 11, but I figure I’m too broke anyway.

Swaps are fun, because it’s always a surpries, you know? And less guilt with the buying stuff too, because it’s not for you!

Ravelry and other things

I’ve spent seriously the whole day on Ravelry, but I have all of my projects and stash up there. Go check out my page!

In uploading my projects, I reliaze how many of my blog posts mention Lizard Ridge. Before too long it’ll be over. Except, I’m thinking of backing it, which will take a little while, but the tutorial here is really good.

Interestingly, The Yarn Harlot‘s books aren’t in the Ravelry database yet, which amuses me.

I must be insane, by the way. I signed up for the Ravelry Summer Camp swap. The package goes out end of August, which is after my LJ swap is over. But still. I’m nuts.

Plane knitting will be two things from my LJ secret pal (in case of confiscation)

Either knitty’s toe-up sock pattern in this:

Or a headband in this:

I’ve changed my mind on what yarn to use for Wicked, since the cashmerino is pretty warm. I’m thinking now that I’ll use Malabrigo or Artyarns, even though they’re not machine washable. they’re just so pretty.

Anyway, packing and stuff must happen, so that’s about it until I hop across the pond.

Love you all!!
