Messy Hair, Don’t Care

      No Comments on Messy Hair, Don’t Care

Is there such a thing as the perfect messy bun on accident, or is it secretly always carefully coifed? This one was on accident and looked like an exemplary example, so ymmv. Whatever the case, it’s been really warm today, so having it up and up was important. It’s supposed to start cooling back down tomorrow, so like… it wasn’t… Read more »

Time for Evil

      No Comments on Time for Evil

And finally, it’s Evil Genius day! Z and I are both cheerfully working through the tutorial, which is comprehensive and lots of fun. Even having played the original game a million times, having this to guide me in is appreciated. Less appreciated is my attention flitting off for a second, costing me my Hardcore character in┬áDiablo 3. I’d gotten her… Read more »

Angel Grinding

      No Comments on Angel Grinding

Well okay, actually Nephalem, but aaaanyways. But so much grinding. Firstly, I thought about it this morning, and offered to finish running Z’s character through story mode. He realised last night that he hadn’t completed story mode, so couldn’t do adventure mode stuff, so. I wanted to play, it gave me something to do for a few hours. Apparently, wasn’t… Read more »

Beauty Abound

      No Comments on Beauty Abound

Today’s postbox run was a bit of a delight. I could smell both woodsmoke, and the bright smell of flowers on the slightly icy wind. I’m not a particularly pro-spring person, but the bits that could be autumnal make it alright. Past that, been a pretty generic sort of day. Doing some craft, doing some gaming, trying to take it… Read more »

Entropy Is

      No Comments on Entropy Is

I have to say, I’m happy that my desk space hasn’t completely fallen into entropy and disarray. I guess my last bout of tidying really did a lot of good in yeeting and organising or something. Really, both Z and myself have been a lot better in recent times at yeeting things. I guess we’re old enough to lose a… Read more »

Nearing New Territory

      No Comments on Nearing New Territory

I am almost, excitedly, nearing the end of the foot part. I am almost, terrifyingly, near to new-to-me construction territory. I’m trying to not look ahead so I don’t overthink it, but oh laws, it’s coming. Past that, not much going on today, as is my preferred way. I ran Z through some stuff in┬áDiablo 3. I took some product… Read more »

Very Aesthetic

      No Comments on Very Aesthetic

Today has been a pretty rocking day. I’ve had three Etsy orders out the door. I had a chance to go visit Mum briefly. I got, le gasp, actual feedback in my shop. And work was just a victory lap, leaving only a few bits to pick over… next week. I don’t currently plan to work tomorrow, ’cause I don’t… Read more »


      No Comments on Noice!

Smaller loves to make art. Their bookbag is always containing something new, usually gifted to me. Today was no exception. Today was special, however, because it was randomly a Pikachu. I’ve not asked her what inspired her to do one, but it’s pretty freaking good for someone her age. I’m glad that she is confident enough to make, though we… Read more »

Like Magic

      No Comments on Like Magic

Well, so far so good on the toe up sockery. Of course, I’ve not looked ahead to see what other surprises there might be, but I picked a fairly straightforward pattern to do. I know doing heels and gussets and stuff was scary the first time going the other way, so I’m sure that it’ll be a bit daunting going… Read more »


      No Comments on Success!

It took about three goes casting it on, but I managed to get the Turkish cast-on on, and built upon. It’s fairly easy to do once I tamp down the anxiety of learning something new and like… do the thing. The pattern I’m doing called for the figure eight cast-on, but like… close enough? And easier too, since the version… Read more »
