Also, today in ballet we did a realllllllllllllyyyyyy amazing dance to the remix of Carol of the Bells by the London Festival Orchestra :D:D:D:D it was cool. Check it out here!
I loved that its got such an un-ballet-y beat and it ends up sounding almost like hip hop. I loved doing ballet to that, it made it so amazing. I'm going to try to make a video of the dance. And one day I might post it. I showed my parents tonight lol and my dad was surprised and he said 'blablabla (wasn't listening) she has grace!' and 'your very fluid with your feet'. It made me suuuuper happy when you said that :] Thanks Daddy! Haha, and I only showed them the very first dance moves. Of that whole long song.
Anyway!!!! So today was a goooooooooooood day :]
DEAR MEGAN. GET READY.
I did these two washcloths in one day. They were part of my present to my mom for her baby shower. (The rest of it was stuff I bought, not knitted) The first picture is of both of them, before I moved and readjusted them into their shapes. Cause the yarn is so small and loose and light they easily get formed into sloppy shapes. But oh well right, they're washcloths! Anyway!
Both of them :]
First one. Really sloppy knitting but I did this one really fast. :/ It's complete purl.
Upclose of first one.
Second one. Still pretty sloppy. I knit four rows then purled four rows. And when casting on and binding off I did purl.
Upclose of the second one.
THERE YOU GO MEGAN. Haha :] Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the wrist warmers I knitted a while ago. (Well I can't promise it will be tomorrow but, you know.) I'm excited for you guys to see my Christmas presents! They're gonna be pretty neat knitting :D
Well I guess I'll do a reeeeecipe now. From Crave. Indulge. Satisfy.
