things may seem a little too familiar, but I promise that I didn’t mess with the colors to fake out a new fo. hell, the computer I’m on right now doesn’t even have ps installed! (computer problems have been haunting me for the last week or two, hence the silence)

I think amanda was either going to kill me or have a heartattack if I didn’t post about these since they are for the toasty toes swap. yeah, you didn’t know I was in it did ya? (btw, amanda, your e-mailbox is full!).
I partly didn’t blog about these because progress was slow and because I think the recipient would have figured me out pretty quickly. I ‘happened’ to have some purple yarn in my stash that would be perfect for her and this stitch pattern makes for some nice fitting socks, another request she had.
as an aside (and way more important than my socks):
I received an email from offhand designs letting me know of their wheelchair fundraiser. larisa’s (the owner and designer of offhand) niece, kyann, has a form of ms and she needs a new electric chair with a power tilt seat – this will help support her upper body and take pressure off her spine periodically. insurance will only cover a portion of the $12,000 cost but maybe if we all donate a little bit they’ll reach their goal (I think it’s 2500 and right now they’re at $850). to make it even harder to resist (you know you want to help out already!) offhand is giving everyone who donates a clutch, bag, or tote of their choice. so if you wanted to try out one of their beautiful bags anyway, this is a perfect way or maybe you can get some holiday shopping done early. really I just want them to reach their goal as soon/fast as possible, do you guys think we can do it?!
