New look... you like it?

It's a little "standard" for my tastes, but I haven't been feeling well the last couple of days, so I don't want to work on anything more intensive, and poor Bryce has been so busy I don't even WANT to ask him right now.

I just found my cord to my camera, so expect pictures next time (and bitch at me if you don't get them!) of some FOs (including kitty hats just for SP), and of my NEW, AWESOME, TOTALLY RAD, ULTRA-PINK HAIR!

Yes, my hair is pink.
Yes, I went to a job interview yesterday with pink hair.

The guy interviewing me liked it. The job is at Borders, in the Cafe. I'm down for a new job. Cross your fingers, I'm supposed to be getting a call back tomorrow for a second interview.

So, I'm getting acclimated to the immediate surrounding area. I visited the LYS Thursday, and GUESS WHAT?

I walked there.

That's right, I am a 7 minute walk away from the yarn store. It'd be even faster if I were brave enough to cut through the trees and stuff. Maybe next week. I'm getting a bike soon. I'll be getting the Electra Hawaii Custom 3-speed in Ghosted Red, and I am so excited about it. Then I'll only be about a two minute ride from the yarn store.

But I had loads of fun, and got to meet many of the great women at Bluebonnet.

I've also been spending lots of time on the boards at SuicideGirls, and really, not knitting much of anything interesting at all. I've mostly just been working on the damn kitty hats for A-Kon

How've y'all been?

tired -_-

Okay, so I've now applied for two jobs, though I don't really want to work until after A-Kon, the extra money will be nice. It is also INCREDIBLY inconvenient to be without a debit/credit card. I was planning on setting up an Etsy shop, but I need a credit card to do so.

I'm also having an undeniable urge to knit a lace shawl, but I don't have enough yarn, or approiate needles.

Also, Secret Pal: I did go ahead and update my sp8 questions a few posts back, including correct links to my wishlists.

sp8 questionaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
My favorite so far has been any Lorna's Laces, and any Noro. I don't like acrylic at all (I'm a TOTAL yarn snob)

2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
I have a case for my needles, but currently they are not in it. I have nothing for my hooks.

3. How long have you been knitting? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I've been knitting about a year and a half, and I'm somewhere between intermediate and advanced

4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
(there are a total of five wish lists on Amazon for me. You'll find them all on the left hand side that says "Tina Wall's Wish Lists), DeviantArt, and . I just noticed on my wishlist that most everything I wanted was sold out, but I generally like anything from there.

5. What's your favorite scent? (for candles, bath products etc.)
Any food scent, anything spicy (like clove), or anything fruity. I'm not that picky, I just don't like anything that smells "perfume-y" or cucumber-melon.

6. Do you have a sweet tooth? Favorite candy?
I LOVE all candy, especially any type or foreign or unusual candy.

7. What other crafts or Do-It-Yourself things do you like to do? Do you spin?
I spin a little, but other than the knitting, I'm not that crafty. I'm thinking about starting to learn some beadwork, though.

8. What kind of music do you like? Can your computer/stereo play MP3s? (if your buddy wants to make you a CD)
I like anything and everything, from gangsta rap to Johnny Cash and Elvis. I don't really like the more modern country, however.

9. What's your favorite color? Or--do you have a color family/season/palette you prefer? Any colors you just can't stand?
PINK! I love pink. It's sort of funny, but true - you could get me a pink highliter and I would be thrilled. As for colors I don't like - yellow, bright green.

10. What is your family situation? Do you have any pets?
As of May 19th (two days after this "officially" begins, I guess) I will be living with my boyfriend and his insane cat, both of whom I adore.

yes, yes, yes (though TX won't really get cold enough), and sometimes.

anything cabled or lace

13. What are you knitting right now?
TONS of hats with kitty ears to sell at an anime convention

Tought myself from a book geared towards 12 year old girls.

none that I can think of, and none as of yet.

22. Are there any new techniques you'd like to learn?
not that I can think of...
