I went to Joanns on Monday and I asked an employee if they had patterns. And she said of course we have patterns we're a fabric store. So then I asked her where they are and she told me its in the drawers. I was so shocked how many patterns there were. I skimmed through all the patterns by opening all the drawers. Theres got to be an easier way to look through all of them >< I'll just bring a reference picture next time I'm pattern hunting.

There is usually a bunch of large books on top these things and they have a bunch of pictures of the patterns. Or you can search online for the pattern, then copy the number, and then go to the store. It's much easier...

Well what I usually do is skim through the magazines they provide on the table next to the drawers. Then when I find something I like, I check the pattern number and the name of the pattern maker. Then I go to the drawer section for the pattern make and find the pattern number. Viola! Easy way to find patterns.

Oh, there should be tables of some sort with giant catalogs of the patterns and their pictures and numbers, and each company has a book. That's the best way to look for them~
Oooor, you can look around online and search the pattern companies' sites.

Seriously debating Kolko. Because I could use my Belarus wig, and her coat doesn't look too hard. :T But when would I wear her? ;A;

I'm starting to highly doubt my Sakura cosplay will get to my house before I go back to college for Spring Term, considering it hasn't even shipped yet. T___T;

Sigh. But at least I'll most likely have a Kobato bottle, Ioryogi plush, lots of manga, and maybe (though it probably won't arrive for at least a couple days or so after I get home) my copy of Pokemon White waiting for me. >w> </shopaholic> I can't wait until FRIDAY FRIDAY *bricked*

I hope I get that Spring Term campus job. ._.;

To lose some stress, I went through various references for Kolko for half an hour.
I'm starting to seriously consider it. ;A;

Okay so, apparently theres a pattern sale at Joann's this weekend. I don't need any patterns, but I'm kind of a pattern hoarder. >.> I don't know if I can talk my mom into stopping at Joann's at all, considering we were just there a week or so ago. >.> I'm a Joann-a-holic. xD

I finally started the first silver stripe on my Ravenclaw scarf! :'D ....but somehow I managed to completly tangle the yarn ball. There was no right string to pull out. D: so now I have a half inside out ball of yarn in my lap. xD

I also with I knew what size my needles were. T_T I really want to get a circle needle that isn't the shortened 24 inch walmart one I rigged to be shorter with hot glue, super glue, and plumbers tape. Having to nudge stitches over the bump gets annoying. D:

I should sleep, but I shall sit here and knit, while listening to Blaine and Kurt sing together. <3
