Working Dinner

      No Comments on Working Dinner

Today has been… a day. It started with waking up to find out I’d slept through Smalls being sick all night. She ended up having to stay home, and has to again tomorrow per school rules. She’s in good spirits though, and trying to eat, so she’ll probably be fine for Wednesday. ((and being sick meant more toast for her,… Read more »

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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Temptation

There is a single bead that has been sitting on my desk most of this week. So of course, that bead keeps singing siren songs of making more stitch markers. You know what? I do want to make more. But I have set myself the goal of trying to get halfway through this sleeve this weekend, so I’m trying to… Read more »

Getting On

      No Comments on Getting On

Today has been for sitting on my backside, gaming, and knitting. I am pleased at the progress that I am making on this sleeve, especially since I’m not able to exclusively knit most of the time… hooray, ADHD brain! Still, progress is progress, and I’m over a quarter of the way done. That’s pretty cool, and it would be even… Read more »

Feeling Cute

      No Comments on Feeling Cute

I don’t know what it it is about today, but I’ve been feeling super cute. I couldn’t even tell you why in particular. I mean, I default think that I am adorable and all of that. I like me, I like my failing meatbag in a frustrated sort of way. Maybe my body was just squirtin’ an extra dose of… Read more »

Spot the Difference

      No Comments on Spot the Difference

I’ve happily been chipping away at the first sleeve, happy with the progress. I thought something looked different in the seed stitch, but I shrugged it off. And then, after 12 rows of it, I realised that I was doing double instead of single. Oh well. I’ve also decided that I cannot be bothered to do it right, so as… Read more »
