A few weeks ago I started my first knitting project.
It is coming along very slowly, but it looks pretty good so far. I really don't know how it will look in the end, but this is what it looks like now:Hopefully it will be a medium size cowl. That picture looks like crap, sorry.

In other news, the kitchen remodel will be starting soon. I will be tracking the progress soon. I'm really excited, but about not having a kitchen for three (!) weeks.

A Cozy Winter.

For a very long time, I have been searching the perfect winter coat. As with everything else, I know I should be investing in a nice, classic piece. However, since I am young and fairly poor, I usually go for the cheap item.
Recently while researching bridesmaid dresses online, I came across some beautiful winter coats on They make wonderful coats, but they are usually way out of my price range. Lucky for me, sale prices are a little lower this year due to the recession. I made the decision to buy myself a coat. The hardest part was deciding which one. There were a few really great ones to choose from. But I finally decided (it was probably the word "cashmere" in the discription) on the Carrie Coat.
I love this coat! I don't even care that is was marked down even more just a few days after I bought it. It is incredibly comfortable, cute, practical, and oh-so-freaking-soft.
The mustard tights make me feel like a dinosaur, or a duck. But I went shopping with my friend Lisa, who thinks I wear too many dark colors.
The coat also has a nice tie at the neck for when it gets windy and I am without a scarf.
I love it. I do not love my funny lips in the photo above. Stupid flash.
