QVC? What is my life coming to here?
So, should I start seeking out therapy now? I honestly spend time on the QVC website last night looking at Christmas clothing. Yeah. I really did. I was ogling at stuff I would have previously termed "gay teacher clothes." Like not clothes that a homosexual teacher would wear, but gay as in bright as tacky and with little snowmen and shit emblazoned on the front. And I looked at these things with the idea that I wanted to buy AND WEAR the stuff.
Yes, friends and neighbors, I was looking at fiber optic lighted holiday sweaters. No, I didn't buy one, but I'm not ruling out the possibility that I might. Cause they would go really well with the tacky Christmas tree hat that I'm RABIDLY waiting on. I go check the mail every day with a big smile, and the damn thing's not there waiting on me. Since when did I become an old lady who enjoys looking at the QVC website and wearing giant Christmas tree hats? I think it's this holiday obsession that I have. It mostly is just for Halloween, but I have to admit that I enjoy the whole twinkly-ness of Christmas and the opportunity to be completely tacky. Although, I must admit that I've been tacky for at least a couple of decades, but *I* think I pull it off well (and I don't care if anyone thinks anything to the contrary).
In other news.
I will be shopping for yarn a lot whilst participating in the first annual Atlanta Metro Shop Hop. Went to the first three stores today and got three free patterns! Sweet!
And now I don't feel like typing anymore, so I leave you with my first pair of socks made on circular needles in progress. Pattern is from Knitting Circles Around Socks. Yarn is squeaky Sassy Stripes in "Crayon." Yeah I didn't want to take my socks off to try them on cause my feet are cold.
