I’ve been taken a lot of pictures on accident lately. That, or Littlerbit is a bigger ninja than I realised. I found this one on my phone when I went to mail a picture of the birthday girl to myself for use in posting. This works pretty well too though. There’s my PJs, there’s my 3DS, and there’s my desktop… Read more »

Birthday Butt

      No Comments on Birthday Butt

Tomorrow, dear Smallhausen will be seven. Blah blah, where does the time go, blah blah. I’m… not the most sentimental of people, I admit. I do feel a teense sentimental about this because oh haaaaay, my firstborn child levelling up. That’s something. She got a huge laugh out of Z this morning when she slapped her hands onto her cheeks… Read more »

Totally Tubular

      No Comments on Totally Tubular

Har har har, I slay me with my terrible jokes. But the tubety leg part of sock the second is almost done, which is most pleasing. I knocked out about a third of it last night at Stitch ‘n Bitch, and am most of the way through the third third of that part. I’ve got about three rows, and then… Read more »

You Can Buy Knife Anything!

      No Comments on You Can Buy Knife Anything!

Knife sword, knife pineapple… knife kitchen towels?! I was at Stitch ‘n Bitch, as I am on my alternate Wednesdays, which I’m sure all of you have clocked by now ’cause I mention it every time. One of our regulars had brought a cake, and had brought paper towels to hand it out on, and a knife to cut it… Read more »

No Words, Not Really

Today was the day the hammer came down. Today was the day we lost Carrie Fisher. As rough as all the deaths of 2016 have been for me, this has been the hardest by far. I’ve called her ‘Momma Carrie’ almost as long as I’ve carried my bipolar diagnosis, and my non-existent bucket list included two things, one of which… Read more »

Testing a Theory

      No Comments on Testing a Theory

With it being the school holidays, Z is once again trying his luck in getting Littlerbit to sleep in her own bed. He’s been herding them up to bed early and reading them several stories as a cooldown period. I have, for the most part, sat side-saddle for it because I wanted to show solidarity. Today… feh. Today I feel… 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 »

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 »

Today, I encountered my first Shiny Pokémon of Generation VII. Unfortunately, it’s a freaking normal-type looooooser with limited potential. I complained about it on Instagram and actually got a reasonable trade offer… but I turned it down. Even if Dillhole is a dillhole, he’s my first shiny of the generation, and I’m not going to let go of him. I… Read more »

Sock Yawn

      No Comments on Sock Yawn

It’s the alternate Thursday, so it was Pins & Needles time. There were only five us at the group today, which worked out in one aspect — it meant I had more than enough stitch markers to gift. They were well received, and even more so when they twigged that they were handmade by me. Hee. *digs toe into dirt,… Read more »
