It Begins

      No Comments on It Begins

One of the houses in the village that went all out for Halloween has made a start on their Christmas decorations. If that’s what they want to do, then good on them — but I still roll my eyes slightly. While smiling. As said, to each their own, but it’s not for me personally. Doesn’t mean I’m going to disparage… Read more »

Ticking Along

Today came with a wintry near surprise — there was like, two flakes of snow. I tried to get a picture, but it was too dark for my phone to catch anything. It’s supposed to precipitate more overnight, but whether it’s snow or whether it’s rain… well, that’s up to the weather deities to sort out. 🙂 Today’s picture comes… Read more »

Nearing the End…

I am nearing the end of the first ball of wool on this sweater — yay! I don’t know how many more rows i am going to be able to get out of the remaining red, but I’m going to get as many as possible out of it. I’m going to guess that it will do me another 2-3 rows,… Read more »

The Tiniest Kidnapper

      No Comments on The Tiniest Kidnapper

Smalls insists that Littler was trying to kidnap her here. I’m not sure how that would actually work, even accounting for how strong Littler is. Still, it was cute, so slap a few stickers on it, and it’s brutally kawaii, ha ha. I’m feeling really anxious today for some stupid reason. Yes, I have the LEEP/LEETZ tomorrow, but I am… Read more »

Ninja Hugs

There is a… for a lack of a better phrase… a toddler meme called ‘Johnny Johnny’. As I have a only just not a toddler, we all know it well. Instead of asking her if she was eating sugar or candy, I asked her if she was hugging her father. This was her approach to it before responding to me…. Read more »

Day of the Sock

      2 Comments on Day of the Sock

And voila, the first sock is done! Nearly. I still have to weave in all the ends, but the first being done means the roadmap for the second is laid out. I don’t know that I am going to cast on for that tonight… we’ll see. I have to get through this first, ha ha. It’s been a good day,… Read more »

Eve

I have almost nothing to say about today, which really, means that I’ve done today properly. I knitted, as the picture hopefully indicates. I’m not too far off of finishing the first soak, though I’ve done like, *maybe* four rows today. I’ve been grinding breeding in Pokémon and playing Tropico 5, which has kept me rather busy. Z had spotted… Read more »

Turn Turn Turn

I’ve been cheerfully working on my knitting today. It’s been a good distraction (along with video games) to my continually feeling crap. Stupid cold resurging or something, am I right? Of course, I got ahead of myself on my knitting, as pictured here. I tried to turn the heel without actually doing the heel. At least it wasn’t too much… Read more »

Ooh, Shiny

      No Comments on Ooh, Shiny

While it’s a day later than Smallhausen wanted, our tree is up and vaguely decorated. Which is to say, the girls put the ornaments on, and we’ve not gotten around to adjusting the spacing on them. It looks passably fine from where I’m sitting, and I told her that I was impressed with her efforts. Really, she’s been a good… Read more »
