I couldn’t tell you why exactly, but today I’ve been doing sock monster on my hands. I guess it’s just me surfing on the random weird waves of my brain, ha ha. Plus, sock monsters are fun, and seeing how far the sock is progressing along my fingers is, as usual, pleasing. Today has been a good day of doing… Read more »

How Does Your Garden Grow?

While this colourway is called ‘Sugar Cookie’, it’s seriously like a rose to me. I love roses to some ridiculous degree, so this suits me. Like, I love roses to the point that I insisted (if possible) that I bring the roses my mother-in-law got me for my first Christmas in the UK here to the new house when we… Read more »

Too Many Pictures in the Year

      No Comments on Too Many Pictures in the Year

My mother-in-law’s birthday is in a few days, and her one request was that I whip up a new filler for the picture frame we got her last year. The filler currently in it was pictures of the girls from the previous year, so what I’m doing is the same again. As I’ve taken *thousands* of photos in the past… Read more »

Speeding Along

I had a really good night of knitting and chatting last night, and a bit of knitting today, and suddenly my first sock is almost five inches long. I checked my leg length on my last pair of socks, and it was all of 4.5 inches. I should probably move on to the heel flap soon before it gets too… Read more »

Let There Be Breeze!

According to the BBC weatherperson, the high yesterday reached 35C (95F) in some parts of England. Today’s high by comparison is much more reasonable 20C (68F). We’ve had the windows thrown open all day to catch the breeze, and it’s been overcast too. We had one teenyquick thunderstorm this morning, but otherwise it’s been cool and dry. It’s supposed to… Read more »

Serpentine

Whelp, I got past the initial ribbing, and then flubbed up the two rows after that. I picked it back, got my head into the game, and am now making good progress into the pattern. The tl;dr is ‘didn’t follow instructions properly’, but at least I figured it out before I got too far. The heat continues to be murderous,… Read more »

The weather was hot again today, and is supposed to be hot again tomorrow. And tonight. So last night, we all slept downstairs under the auspices of two ceiling fans and the air conditioner, and it looks like we’ll be doing it again. Z and I are discussing the logistics of it, as we can’t do what we did last… Read more »

HAIL!

Yes, hail, hail to the air conditioner retrieved from the garage. With the temperatures pushing 90 around here, the fans and lack of breeze weren’t cutting it. And we all needed the relief after a not great night last night. For me, my dumbass forgot to take my meds at the right time, so too hot to sleep + not… Read more »

Pinkie Dink

I just finished off the little set of toy mice — hooray! The only downside is that I ran out of gray when doing the baby pinkie mouse, so I had to improvise. One ear is pink and black, the arms are black, and the legs and tail are the pink to match the parental mice. I also had to… Read more »

Well okay, that’s not strictly true, as here’s a nice picture of clouds and a tree. But it’s a filler picture for what I should have taken pictures of — the kiddos at the village fun day. But nope, I managed to leave my phone at home, so will have to rely on other parties for treasured digital memories. I’m… Read more »
