Yarn Con RULED!

Seriously...I had a fabulous time. I rocked my Owls sweater and had fun talking to people who asked me about it. I got some lovely handspun yarn from a variety of places, a cool pattern keeper tool, a cool thing to hold my sock needles, and...gaso...a drop spindle with soem fiber. And I started spinning...while was awesome.

I also met up with the gals from Chicago Knitters Unite Meetup group and I am totally looking forward to future events. Yeah Knitting!

New Ellowyne & Evangeline Plus $13 Off!

Lots of Cute New Stuff over at Wilde Imagination.

The New Wigged Out Ellowyne with Glass-Looking eyes is so pretty. I love that body suit too. There are six new dressed dolls ( i like the Prudence the best...) and four new outfits. I love Around & Around and Wrapped in Ennui. Too adorable! There are some new jewelery sets and hangers for the trunk.

There are also some new Evangeline offerings. The new resin Evangline, Grave Offerings, looks wonderful with great makeup and a killer wig. There are two new outfits. Tons of new accessories (wigs, jewelery, & shoes) and a great looking armoire/trunk that I might just have to get.

It's a pretty impressive lineup of new stuff from both product lines. Sigh...poorness ensues.

Interweave Holiday Gifts 2009 Preview is Up!

Darn you knitting magazines...i cannot help but purchase you. I am weak. Here is the preview for the latest wave of holiday knitting mags coming up: IK Holiday Gifts!

I like the Tube Socks by Ann Bud...those would be uber fast to knit as gifts with no pesky hell-flapness. The Suede Slippers would also make for swell gifts. The Big Thaw Pullover might just be the winner for what I make for Brian this Christmas! The Highland Zip Jacket is also awesome...and tempting. I love the little entrelac bags and i just so happen to have some kureyon lying about.

And there is more..and it also looks like there is an entire issue aslo devoted to just accessories. Someone stop me...

Podcast coming shortly...

ugh, i just noticed that I actually have a decent amount of people i should probably get a bit better about being regular. Accountability is for sucks.

Anyhow, I will record this weekend and tell you all about my recent yarn, doll, and comic acquisitions and all the exciting television watching and reading i have been doing.

Halloween Makeup Looks up at MAC Cosmetics

Mac's halloween makeup looks are up...and as always, fabulous.

Knitting going slow....

Man I was knitting like gangbusters and then it all came to a sudden halt last week with the Fashion Royalty Convention. I have just picked the needles back up and I am not feeling it thus far. Perhaps it's because I am doing the uber-boring stockinette sleeve part of my Hollywood Herringbone sweater. I am knitting both sleeves at once so at least when I am done with this tedium...the pain will be over and I will be close to done with this sweater! Weee. then I need to kick holiday knitting into gear. not to mention deal with the major stash acquisitions from Stitches two weeks ago! I was a very bad girl.

Tonner Fashion Zombies Updates

Darn. I love these but they are WAY too expensive. I might have got them at retail if they had the convertible fashion feet as shown in the photos...but as they stand, they are cool but way too much money. I hope I can get them later at a better price. I like that they are the smaller busted dolls though...

Eye Color: Green
Discovered: In the office of Fashion Doll Agency

I was hit with fashion fever very early in my life. I started by modeling children's clothes, then later I modeled swimsuits for shopping malls and nightclubs. A photographer friend warned me that I'd end up walking the pavement if I continued like that, so he helped me to make a portfolio which I sent to almost every agency in Paris, New York, and Milan. Fashion Doll Agency was the first to respond, proposing that I come to Paris. It was my first time travelling, and now that is all I do! » Chuckles.

What she likes least: She playfully draws attention to her breasts, then laughs it off. «That's not true, I love them! If there's something I don't like, it's the lack of preparation before my actions. Most often I just throw myself …
