There is good news, bad news, sad news, great news, and astonishingly surprisingly odd news.

Good News: I finally finished my best friend N's Christmas gift... after how many months? I'm not going to put a picture up because it will ruin her surprise.

Bad News: My poor computer seems to have caught a bad winter cold and refuses to let me be n the Internet for more then a few minutes... and the cold effects it's ability to get better (aka: virus protection).

Sad News: My second scarf, the neon green one (pictures below) is only 55 inches (or like 140 cm). I was hoping to have it done in time for when (one of) my sister(s) comes to visit, but that's part two of sad news, she more then likely will not make it up for her birthday/Christmas.

Great News: I made brownies!

Astonishingly Surprisingly Odd News: That this post is actually posted and you're reading it.

I honestly wish I could be more creative and just post all the things I "make" so that people can see I"m not wasting my time. But I'm not actually making all these great things, just in my head. I'm trying to knit more and more, but my only desire seems to be knitting scarfs. Maybe it's because they are the "easiest" thing to knit. I say "easiest" because I"m trying different patterns and what not. I love scarfs! Well, that and socks... and tea, and Sammy, and... well a lot of things really.

Money money money. We're tightening out belts yet again. I had to get a new phone (the cheapest one I could get, it's $4 (US) after the mail-in rebate... but still. My old phone, though wonderful for the past two years, has bit the dust, you had to hold it only on the sides of the upper part of it when talking (if you even touched the bottom part of the flip phone it went to instant static), not to mention that it was terrible for the ear-pieces... Blah. SO if you know me personally and would like to be one of the few people to cal me first on my new phone, go for it! I hate calling others because I'm so worried that they are busy, or that they don't want to talk to me; even though often times I'm just "yelled" at for not calling them and they tell me to call them, I still feel like I'm going to interrupt something.

Anyways, I do have a great news! I finished my step-sisters john deer hat:
