Camera Hogs

      No Comments on Camera Hogs

I was trying to take a selfie to use for tonight here, when my favourite little camera hog wandered over. We took a couple of amusing photos, but I liked this one the best for no particular reason. Jeze is on her way back home now, le boo. It was fantastic having her to visit, and we are thrilled there… Read more »

Always Shifting

      No Comments on Always Shifting

Today brought another wave of trying to tame my desk environs. Of course, kiddos decided they had to keep getting in my way in spite of me repeatedly asking them to not invade the like, 2 square feet I needed them to stay out of. My anxiety is still a bit elevated from that, which is super annoying. But at… Read more »

Grandad Conehands

      No Comments on Grandad Conehands

We, the six of us, went out for a family meal this evening. The girls were well-behaved (as always), and Granddad solicitously offered to help them eat their desserts. So they both gave him their cones, and focused on their ice cream. I don’t know know if he was amused that they took him at his word… I know I… Read more »

Setting In

      No Comments on Setting In

Today’s knitting is… sewing. And then more sewing. I got halfway around on the first sleeve and had to rip it out because it looked horrible. And it looked horrible because I always think that I remember how to set in sleeves without checking (hint: I really don’t xD). I’m making pretty good headway on the second sleeve, so hopefully… Read more »

Round and Round

      No Comments on Round and Round

I managed to slog through the pain in the ass of picking up stitches last night. I’m probably only another row or two off of doing the amount I need before I can cast off and move on to other things, so that’s hooray. I don’t know if I am going to get stuck into the shoulder seams today, but… Read more »

Moarrr

      No Comments on Moarrr

Yes, I had moar beads arrive today! These were all mainly on the small size, but I’ve already found some inspiration. I made two sets of crochet markers, and am trimming off the matching two sets of knit markers. I’m hoping I can come up with a name sooner rather than later so I can get them posted to my… Read more »

You Guessums, Bead Edition

      No Comments on You Guessums, Bead Edition

There is this one particular random assortment of beads that I keep ordering from Amazon, and it reliably gives me some of the beads that I want to work with. It also gives me some I’ve not figured out what I want to do with, but I’ll figure it out as I go along. What I am probably going to… Read more »

Hard at Work

      No Comments on Hard at Work

Actually, that sort of wasn’t true. I didn’t really do any work-work, and was easily swayed away from it by Z (and the fact Littler decided I was furniture for long stretches). I hopefully will get some of the things done tomorrow, but the main thing will be having a proper bath before going out tomorrow night and having to… Read more »

Easter Heroes

      No Comments on Easter Heroes

We are currently over at Z’s parent’s house. The girls started off the visit by starting their Easter Egg hunt — before any of the adults could process that they had started it, ha ha. It’s been the usual, pleasant family do though. There’s been food for nibbling on, kids running amok, and general chilling. Z and his dad watched… Read more »

Momentarily Contained

      No Comments on Momentarily Contained

I spent part of this morning trying to tidy and reorganise my desk storage to make space for this whole Etsy shop thing. It’s a good idea in theory, though in practice my desk is currently covered with stuff ’cause I’ve been making and adding markers to the store. I’ve had to make myself stop and take a minute to… Read more »
