Again and Again

      No Comments on Again and Again

I’ve finished the knitting of the hat, but I keep cacking up the sewing slightly. It’s not the end of the world because it’s not like it takes that long, but it’s still annoying. It also doesn’t help that I ‘have’ to do it top to bottom to get it to line up right and make the top look properly… Read more »

First thing this morning, I finished the last few stray ends of my blanket. I realised I was almost done when I went to bed, but opted to… well, go to bed. It’s currently tucked up in the chair on Z’s side of the bed, waiting for when it’s actually needed. And of course, since I’m supposed to be doing… Read more »

The Flip Side

I decided I was going to try to focus my efforts on getting the blanket finished. It takes up a lot of space in my crafting area, so getting it done and moved off would be a Good Thing™®. It’s pleasant to look upon and I was starting to get a good pace before we hit dinnertime. Hopefully I can… Read more »

Z took my booking form for the school fete in today. The cost per exhibitor is £10, plus a raffle prize. He suggested I make something, so I’m going to whip up a cat hat to donate. So that’s another project on the needles. I also have an increasingly full shopping basket on eBay, as I definitely need more beads…. Read more »

Making a Start

I made myself sit down and get started on weaving in the ends. I’m going to be at it for some time, but it always goes more quickly than I think it’s going to once I get a start. Of course, it would help if I don’t lose my needle… Today has been a balance between bits of self-care, and… Read more »

And Rest

As of today, all of the squares are joined! Woo! Now, there’s only… weaving in hundreds of ends… doing a border… possibly sewing a back on… oh okay, there’s a lot of work left, but it still feels good to be ‘done’ for the moment. I might start weaving in some of the ends tonight, but there’s an equally strong… Read more »

One and a Bit

As it stands right now, I have one row and a ‘square’ remaining on the main work of my blanket. I should probably buckle down and get it done, but Skyrim. *chuckles* It’s been really nice getting back into it and being reminded of why the memes are hilarious (not that I had forgotten per se, but they’re a bit… Read more »

Last night, I did indeed remember to talk to Z about buying a couple more of the cheap and cheerful dresses that I like. We looked together to see what colours we liked, and I pushed that order through. Then I signed up for Wish this morning, and bought a cheap and cheerful pair of unicorn leggings, because why not….

Fractal

The blanket continues to grow. I’m shortly to begin adding the sixth row; it’s going to end up being 5×8, I think. It’s a pretty good size right now, but yanno, more bigger, more better or something. xD I opted to do eff-all today, which basically amounted to ‘ALL THE SKYRIM’, and a few little chores. Z wanted to have… Read more »

After doing a few rows of a gauge square and going meh, I decided to go ahead and get the first couple of rows of sockage started. This is all of a row and a half in, but mainly I just wanted to get it started before going out tonight. That way, I have the choice between working on the… Read more »
