Peek At You!

Or Pikachu. Har har har, I’m hilarious. <__< But I liked the whole part of myself in the mirror, ’cause yanno, fancy mirror. It’s fun. I have done an incredibly good job of doing nothing today — huzzah! It took me all freaking day to get my morning writing done, but that was fine. That time was ‘wasted’ playing Prison… Read more »

Annoying the Cat

      No Comments on Annoying the Cat

Really though, annoying cats is fab, ha ha. She is very fond of sitting on the cushions atop the couch and surveying all that she reigns over. We had to put the red blanket there because she’s been doing some massive damage to our freaking new leather couch when she was trying to get traction for her tubby little body,… Read more »

Starting Over

      No Comments on Starting Over

I sat down and frogged the shawl this afternoon. I’ve now restarted, and I am much happier for it. I am also making myself not count the stitches obsessively every row right now, because that’s probably just going to work out better than me yelping at every single potential error. No, instead I’m going to take it slowly and patiently,… Read more »

Frogging It

      No Comments on Frogging It

I’ve decided, after much annoyance with the last three rows, to frog the shawl back to the beginning. I feel no annoyance with this; if anything, I can take what I have learned so far and apply it to doing it better this time around. And sometimes, restarting a project from the beginning is quite cathartic, I feel. We’ll see… Read more »

Patterns Emerge

To my vast bemusement, things have been a lot less scary in the knitting now that I’ve gotten to the charted part. After a quick glance to make sure I was working it correctly (this pattern comes with the written version of the chart as well), it’s been smooth sailing. Smoother sailing than I expected, but then — most of… Read more »

Going Old School (Sort Of)

      No Comments on Going Old School (Sort Of)

I decided that I should boot up the remake of Final Fantasy III, as I had recently purchased it. I figured that it would be a fairly friendly game to play alongside my knitting, as it’s turn based. And speaking of the knitting… I’m almost through the easy part. Sigh. I still lack a lot of confidence in doing lace… Read more »

Party Animal

I know I know I know, I’m terrible, off to Xanth, etc. It’s the last day we have the bear though, so hopefully that will spell the end to animal-based attempts at humour. I think that we managed to do a pretty good job of giving the bear a proper weekend here at our house doing what we do, so… Read more »

Little Old Lady Meee

Earlier today, my back started playing up and making me cranky. I was lamenting that I was without a heating pad, as our existing one got pissed on by one of the cats, and I wasn’t getting anywhere near that. So I figured I’d look on Amazon to see what was available. The tl;dr is hooray for Amazon same-day delivery,… Read more »

Beary Cute

Yes yes, I know, I deserve a pun-ishment. *rimshot* My general response to bad puns is to banish people to Xanth, because fitting. But it doesn’t change that Smallhausen has the class bear this weekend, and I was taken with an urge to knit a scarf for it. I’m taking pictures pretending that the bear is doing the knitting, so… Read more »

A Lovely Evening

      No Comments on A Lovely Evening

It could have been a drama-filled one, but instead it was nice. Someone was being especially dramatic about everything, but as they fecked off to another part of the pub altogether, it didn’t bother me none. It did bother some of the other members, who were only just having to raise that said person was a bit of a fussy… Read more »
