22 and 8 Months to Go

Well, another year of my existence has flown by. I'm officially 22! It's sort of odd. That feeling when you're 21 is much different. Like you're older but not so much so that you have a lot of responsibilities and things to think about. When you turn 22 it's like, "Wow...I'm getting old...I should, do things." I have no complaints. Yes it's been stressful with school, terrible advisers, family insanity, and just general over-stressed madness, but overall I think I've got it pretty good.

Along that line, this date also signifies the "8 months left until I'm married" mark! This is both exciting, and completely terrifying. I have some of the essentials, like church, preacher, colors, the basics. But I'm also missing a lot of things that technically (according to all those websites and magazines anyway) I should have done last month or need to jump on this month such as DJ, florist, reception venue, dress, and all those things that book far in advance or need lots of altering time. I hate trying to do this wedding thing while I'm in school in Arkansas and my mom is in Illinois. It's very frustrating.....Josh and I did have lots of fun going out registering on Sunday though! It was soooooo great! We went to Wal-Mart and JCPenny's and got the nifty little scan-gun and went around saying things like "Do you like this one?" "How about this blender? You can make smoothies and it has a food processor attachment so it'll store better." We were planning out our lives together and it was fan-freaking-tastic. I loved it so much. And Josh even had fun. I want to get on Macy's.com and Kohl's website and register there with him too. And Bed Bath and Beyond too. I'm so excited!

I have been knitting. (What? Knitting? Was that what this blog was supposed to be about?) I finished a pair of fingerless gloves/glittens in my pretty orange Sanguin Griphon yarn! They're not great, but I'm so excited because they were my first go and they don't look that bad. Just some random woven ends sticking out (How do you fix that!? I can't do it right it seems) and a couple of holes from when I picked up sts and such. Nothing major. I wear them every day. They're awesome.

I also finished my cabled cowl. My first cabled project. So warm. So nice. I'll post pictures....sometime. Maybe with my Totally Useless SAL post in a few days.
