Poor Poison

      No Comments on Poor Poison

Z had clocked yesterday that Poison (pictured left) had wee’d on a bit of cardboard in the study, and that there was a bit of blood in it. We had a little kit from the vet should this ever happen, so he managed to extract a sample and take it in. The tl;dr is that she’s got cystitis, and a… Read more »

A Man, A Plan, No Flan

Z woke up today with a hit list of chores that he wanted to get done. I can’t say that they all got done, but we did manage some forward progress. I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to in the realm of assistance, but I *did* defunk the vacuum (my hair tends to clog it quickly and… Read more »

Right, this is gonna probably be short because we *just* got home from driving across the country. Our trip to Riath’s house for our little Thanksgiving do went mainly well, outside of Littlerbit vomiting not five minutes from their house. Oh well. We didn’t get a repeat on the way home, which was the important thing. The food was good,… Read more »

Future Order from Minor Disaster

My desk has hit that sort of overgrown state again that happens when I keep piling stuff on it. Funny how that works. *cough* It’ll be a bit better once I get it crammed into my knitting bag for tomorrow… which I will hopefully tonight. We’ve got a very early start to make tomorrow to drive across to visit Riath… Read more »

When Z came home from work today, he came home with his hair freshly cut and an unexpected compliment. It seems it was the same lady who cut his hair once when I was there, and she remembered me as ‘that lady with the really long hair, some of the nicest I’ve ever seen’.  My hair is like, my #1… Read more »

I Made It!

Not gonna lie — I was really freaking anxious about going to Stitch ‘n Bitch tonight. E couldn’t make it, so I was flying solo. I really, *REALLY* did not want to deal with the person I had a conflict with, and moreso without support. So deities were awesome, and that person was not there tonight. She reputedly phoned in… Read more »

Snood v2.0

      No Comments on Snood v2.0

My wool order came in this morning, hooray! I made to make myself put off playing with it until after work-work. I did a couple fiddle arounds with it before asking the intended recipient what she liked best, so now I know the plan of action for the knittery. I’m glad, obviously — I’m hoping it will help me get… Read more »

Twinkly Toes

I have done what I wanted to do today, which was ignore everything and play more Stardew Valley. Well. And taking muuuuuuch longer than was reasonable, I got the wool pictured from skein to cake, and casted on for a gauge square. I’m probably not going to be super-knitty on them once the wool comes in for the snoods, but… Read more »

Fistful of Tiny Hats

Today has been a good day. Even if I had to leave the house. We went over to E’s house so the kids could play, and I didn’t fall to pieces over her like I feared I would. We’d not hung out in person since Woolgate (as I’m calling it), though we’ve done our usual few lines of chatting most… Read more »

Back to Square One

So, you know that snood I was knitting? It’s now been completely pulled back after talking to the person I’m making it for. She thought it would be cool if it was red and white stripes, so sure, why not. I ordered the wool for that and for the other one I’m making for her, so we’ll see how it… Read more »
