Spiral On

      No Comments on Spiral On

I’ve made some decent progress on my second sock this weekend, tra la! I finished and turned the heel, and am making lovely progress down the foot. I’m not counting on having it done before Thursday’s knitting session, but I’m just happy that, once again, that second sock feels like it flies by as compared to the first. I’m always… Read more »

I’m Still Me

      No Comments on I’m Still Me

One thing Smallhausen was worried about with me getting new glasses and recolouring my hair is that I would, somehow, no longer be myself. She was patting my hair earlier and declaring it still not to be red (the butt <3), but that I was still me. That was good. Even if it was a silly quasi-fear, I wasn’t going… Read more »

The Not-Quite Faceplant

      No Comments on The Not-Quite Faceplant

I was feeling the brain fog hard this morning. Like, it took me over half an hour of blinking before I could get my body moving out of bed. I felt a bit bad about it ’cause Z had to get Smallhausen to school, and there I was, unintentionally taking my sweet time. Hopefully I’ll feel more human after the… Read more »

Attempting Order out of Disorder

      No Comments on Attempting Order out of Disorder

Alas, the things I’m trying to sort aren’t exactly this half of my desk, ha ha. I *DID* finally sit down and finish inventorying my wool supplies, so that was pleasing. Hah, so of course I stand up and try to move things around a little bit. It’s still pretty bad, but it’s just that little bit more ordered. I… Read more »

I Hate to Post and Run, But…

      No Comments on I Hate to Post and Run, But…

I don’t know why, but on nights when I’m out, when I get home and mail my blog pictures to myself from my phone, they take for-effin-ever to get to me, forcing me to send them another route. It’s very frustrating because oh hey, I’m tired and want to get in bed. But I have set myself this task of… Read more »

That Western War

      No Comments on That Western War

Being, of course, the correct way to eat a scone during a cream tea. For what it’s worth, I had one each way and couldn’t make my mind up as to which was better, so I guess I’m just going to have to eat more scones until I have a more definitive opinion. I suspect that it’s going to be… Read more »

It Burns!

      No Comments on It Burns!

I’m pretty rubbish about getting out in natural light, so I couldn’t resist suggesting that my milky-white skin was gonna catch on fire from exposure. But I said I was going to get outside and get a picture of my hair colour in natural light, so voila. Bonus, you get to see the new glasses as well. I am quite… Read more »

It Looked Better on Paper

      No Comments on It Looked Better on Paper

Okay so like, my hair looked more artfully tumbled when I looked at in the mirror than it came out in this picture, honest. But I’m still happy enough using it for today’s post, if only ’cause I can’t think of anything else to take a picture of right now. I can say that I am more jazzed by my… Read more »

Glowingly Red

      No Comments on Glowingly Red

I should add that my face isn’t actually that red, but between the shirt and the freshly dyed hair, the yellow glow of the light bulb above is making me positively lurid. *grins* Z was a great help, for which I am grateful. The whole getting the colour into my hair, and then washing it out was very exhausting. But… Read more »

The Most Expensive Bowl I Own…

      No Comments on The Most Expensive Bowl I Own…

Is, of course, my new yarn bowl! And to be fair, £15.59 is a pretty reasonable price for such an important and nicely made bit of kit. It makes me wish that I could wood work… but on the other hand, I think Z would murder me if I got hooked into such a space-intensive hobby atop my other ones,… Read more »
