Valkyrie Furies

The Valhalla Sweater is coming along nicely...but I am trying to be overly suspicious...when I say it is going well I invariably add "Perhaps a little too well.." and look left and right shiftily. I worry that if I get to excited about it, it will turn out to be completely unwearable, or perhaps even spontaneously combust. Either way it would leave me sobbing hysterically, drinking a 6 pack of beer, and smoking a pack of cigarettes. Since I neither drink nor smoke (being reformed from both) you can imagine this might be a bit of a disaster... I call it the Valkyrie Sweater, really only because the design is the Valhalla Sweater and it was the first thing that popped into my head (Probably because I wasted 104 minutes of my life on Max Payne.) Not very clever I know, but anythings better than the Kilosweater! So far I love the sweater, I love knitting it, and I can't wait to wear it. I have finished all the rectanlges for the yoke and today am going to do the end triangles. Tomorrow I have the day off so I am going to spend the whole day knitting and eating things that aren't good for me!
I went for lunch with two of my aunts today. It was a lot of fun and involved a rather large amount of french fries. After lunch we went to Twist of Fate and spent some time perusig the shelves. My plan to convert the world to spinning and knitting is coming along nicely and I now have 2 new recruits (plus Kat on Saturday). Eventually I will start my own cult and become fabulously rich. (Not really sure how, but I think it involves tithing...)

One of my aunts gave me a super cool knitting bag, it's a soft tool box that she embellished with skulls and tattooey thingies. It has lots of little pockets and a case for tools! It's going to be perfect for travelling. My husband and I are going on a driving trip across Canada this summer and it's going to be awesome for that!!

Saturday is the Karaoke Bar Wars Finals! I am a little unsure of what to sing, I have to pick 2 songs. I know I am going to sing What's Up by 4 Non Blondes for sure, but my other song I keep changing my mind on. I am strongly leaning towards Jeremy by Pearl Jam...I will be singing against 20 other singers. I think I am going to ham it up, and do lots of rock and roll kicks and sky grabs! And while waiting for my turn to sing, I will be knitting!

Thanks for showing us the fibre shop. We're really stuck, but we have a book and the internet. Hopefully we will stun you with our amazing spinning next time.
Your Aunties. (lurk, lurk)
