I'm Not Afraid To Be Committed!

Ok, so I'm sure y'all had some slight inkling (I hear you snickering, I'm not *that* bad) that I am... a little weird, to put it kindly.
But hoo doggie, there is more.
For example, what does This Boy do on his day off and is bored?

Got it?
Ok, here's another one...

Still no?
Ok, one more then.

Don't tell me you give up!
I like to paint stylized men's facial hair, of course!

<.< <.> >.>

Noooo! Come back! I'm really not completely crazy... This is just an idea I've had kicking around my head for a little while now, and it was actually sunny enough today to do some painting!
Here are the last two pieces.


And how about all of them together then?

I can't help but think that maybe, just maybe I should have been the stylist for some period evil villain. And I also have a craving to watch Gangs of new York. Weird.

Have a good March, everyone!

P.S. Cookies to whomever knows where the post title is from. (it's a webcomic)
P.P.S. Anyone know the names of all of the styles? I know the handlebar, goatee, dali and mutto chops (not happy how that one turned out) for sure, but my brain is gone today and I can't place all of them.

Break from Break

Well, now that reading break is over, I have some time to knit and blog a little bit. (not really, I am lying to myself by pretending that this week isn't crazy)

So. I have been doing some knitting on my sweater. I am about 3" in, and it's nice and relaxing. Hopefully I will have enough yarn for the style I am trying, and I think I will. Above is my little drawing of what I have in mind, and below is my progress.

Also, I got a package yesterday! A while ago I sent off a set of Addi circulars to a certain individual on the Lime and Violet messageboards (I can't use Addis, grrr), and she sent me a thank you package! I was completely floored and it made me so very happy when I got home from class. First, two skeins of Knitpicks Memories in Fly Fishing (this is the first I have seen of Knitpicks in person. I don't fish, but this is some handsome looking yarn!

Also, what might be just the single cutest thing I have ever seen. I don't know where you got this pin, but I would be very curious to find out! It makes me grin like a fool whenever I see it.

Once, again, thank you Caysie, you are too sweet!
