Blah.

Blogging will probably slow to a crawl for the next month or two. Unfortunately, I don't have much time or energy to do much of anything these days; I don't think I have been this exhausted for quite some time, and I can't quite figure out why even after accounting for work. I'm just gonna take it easy for a few weeks.

In other news, I finally got the frickin' amazing grayscale colorblock tights in the mail from the UK. (Still waiting for the crazy alphabet tights, which are back-ordered). The gradation between the bottom two panels are awesome, though I don't see much difference between the top two, perhaps because I'm not tall enough to stretch them out as they should be. But they are still frickin' amazing, and I'm just hoping the weather will cool down enough this weekend for me to play with them. It's been 90-100 degrees this week. We're expecting a lull for a few days, and then the big oven will turn back on again. Sigh...

In the meantime, check out how Susie Bubble makes them work. When I bought the tights, I had no clue what I was going to do with them; they were just cool, and I figured I'll figure something out. When Susie's post came out, I was totally stoked and got a few ideas. As much as I'm tempted to get one of the colored ones, which looks great on her, I don't think I can pull them off like Susie. She rocks them like nobody's business.

You did not just make me want a pair of those tights. I am not disappointed that the black ones are on backorder. I'm not I'm not I'm not.

Wouldn't mind some of that warm weather here--fall has officially arrived in the Midwest and it's blustery and cold. I love those tights though -- can't wait to see what you do with them.
