Addicted Knitter

Gwen is a high school junior stranded on a not-quite-deserted island. (Manhattan.) She's obsessed with knitting and everything japanese.

I'm planning the stuff I'm going to knit for Christmas. Yes, that's right. Six months ahead of time. Why? Because I just gave my Dad his scarf from last Christmas about a month ago, that's why.

I'm not stupid enough to knit people sweaters, since I know they probably won't appreciate them. So, scarves, hats, and mittens are on the menu. I've found a whole bunch of kickass patterns on the web and bookmarked the ones I have in my book.

The only problem know...yarn. Don't get me wrong, I have a nice little stash, but I have all these random balls of yarn that really wouldn't go too well together and definitely wouldn't fit into any of the patterns I have. I need to go yarn shopping.

Not anytime soon, though. I'm not getting rewarded with a yarn shopping spree for my grades this summer...oh no. I'm getting a trip to Japan.

SCORE! I'm totally psyched.

But since my parents are paying for the plane ticket, they're not giving me any spending money. So I need to save up every penny for the next few weeks. Which is a pain - I mean, I'd like to have something to knit on the disgustingly long flight.

Meh. Secret Pal, if you're out there...I could use a couple balls of yarn...preferably that match each other. ~_~ I haven't gotten anything yet. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - I mean, IF everything went as scheduled, my pal will just be getting her first package today. I'm know...reminding. :)
