Selfie Queens

      No Comments on Selfie Queens

If there is one thing that Littlerbit loves to do, it’s to take selfies. As it’s my BFFFFF bat’s birthday and he loves getting selfies as presents, I let her jab her finger at my screen a couple of times to see what we could random up. I rather like this one, even if we’re both mainly out of frame…. Read more »

It was a Stitch ‘n Bitch night, and I am very tired. I had an unexpected run-in with someone (completely unrelated to the knitting group), and while it was a polite exchange, I was shaking like a leaf for it. That sort of thing wears a spoonless lass out by a vast measure, and I just want to sleeeeep foreeever…. Read more »

Patterns Emerge

As expected, the shawl is progressing nicely. It’s sort of silly — any time I try a new knitting skill, I’m shitting kittens for ages before my brain gets to a place where it’ll cooperate and give it a go. It’s not even about making mistakes per se. I’m okay with making mistakes. I guess it’s the fear of making… Read more »

‘Til the Landslide…

My desk is starting to get all disorganised and mishy-mashy again. As long as things don’t fall off, I don’t really care that much right now. I would ideally like to get it sorted again in the near future, but that’s contingent on feeling vaguely like a human. I don’t feel that human right now, so. And now a couple… Read more »

*pats face* This face, she is a good face. I like my face. I’m also lacking in interesting photos for the day too, so you get my face. La! It’s fine though. I think that while some insist this whole ‘obsession’ with self is narcissistic, I prefer to think of it as radical self-love. Society and the media says I… Read more »

Littlerbit starts nursery next month, and one of the things that they are required to have at school is a pair of wellies for wet play. Littler loves wellies, so popped them on the second she got near them. I don’t know why it charms me so that she can put them on by herself, but she can. She didn’t… Read more »

Because it’s got sort of a vine motif, get it? Get it? Yeah sorry-not-sorry, I continue with the horrible jokes. I continue to be happy that I restarted though. I’m moving through it with a lot more confidence, and am able to tell where I made mistakes before I get too far past them. Most importantly, I’m not panicking and… Read more »

Hahah, it’s late, so late. But it was a really good night out. It was a small group, only five of us, but it was a candid and friendly environment with lots of good chatter and crafting and the usual silliness. I had some rather edifying conversations that made me feel less alone in the world. I also managed to… Read more »

Puny Party

Today was one of those odd days where Littlerbit wanted to be attached to me the entirety of the day. That included well after Z got home from work; even if she deigns to snuggle me, she abandons me the second he gets in. But nope, I was what she wanted, and I gave her lots of it. I didn’t… Read more »

Back to Square… Something

I fudged something very slightly on the last row of the pattern, but I can’t see what it is and I had the right number of stitches on the whole, so I call it a job well done. I’ve started the second iteration of the pattern, and hope to make some good progress tonight. Or at least, progress, hee hee…. Read more »
