sighted: addibarterhat

While on a jaunt in the woods, something flashed before my eyes.  Not my life, but a rare vision, or so I thought.  “Could it be?” I thought to myself.  “Surely, no!” my interior monologue continued.  “*Gasp* What else could it be?” the little voice wondered.  The addibarterhat, in the wild! Gallivanting among the trees, dancing with the woodsprites, whispering to the wind.   And then, just like that, it stopped.  It found its mate, and it was tamed.


freewheelin’, until it was humanized

And now it snuggles cozily under the covers, accepting food and being petted, in its adopted home.

happy knitiversary!

Today is not my actual one-year knitiversary. But it’s close enough. Yes, one year and one week ago I was in Seattle with my friend Carey and asked her how to knit, in exchange for teaching her how to make marble magnets. It took me a month or two to get the hang of it (it took Carey less than one evening to get the hang of marble magnetting), but I can proudly claim that I have still not finished a scarf! What I have finished instead are a multitude of hats. It’s the lazy, obviously. I haven’t touched the CDR since I took it off the needles (note to self: if one is a lazy crafter, then one should not remove project from needles before project is complete, especially if said project is large), my ribbed hat has languished since I took up the hallowig (deadline knitting not conducive to working on other projects. Also, everything i was working on was ribbed so I got very sick of it. Also also it hasn’t been hat weather), and those knit robots have been sitting in the knitting bag since kingdom come (obviously the robots are planning to take over the world and I am doing my part to resist them). Regardless of the lack of many fo’s, I am still proud of myself. I did not forsee doing a sweater, let along a cabled sweater, or a pair of lace socks, or a knitted wig! Go me! Cake and presents welcome.

what i was



You guessed it, I was a Hello Kitty Disco Queen for hallowe’en.




Ok, maybe you didn’t guess it. But that’s what I was, and I’m sticking to it.




And for those of you who are wondering where my cat ears are, the “hello kitty” is more “character that could fit in the world of Sanrio,” but I figure more people have heard of hello kitty than sanrio. I was purple and pink, what can I say.

first blog tag

ooh, i’ve been tagged! I normally don’t like being tagged, but what the hey. First tag on this blog will get a response – but no more.

The rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.
3. i’m ignoring #3 and 4

7 facts:

a) I am a gemini

2) I was in Hackers

gamma) Admittedly, in a crowd scene, with the camera way up high

$) I can imitate accents pretty well, but I have to be listening to them

penta) I’ve flown in zero-gravity – twice

666)  I don’t like the feel of newspaper

g) I look like I wear eyeshadow, but it’s really the skin coloring over my eyes.

In other news, I was visiting my bestie this weekend, and she promised to give me her Addi Turbos. Sadly, they had a hat on them  (she gave up knitting when it hurt her wrists). So I finished it for her Will.  Here is me modeling it. Thanks for the addis, veronique!

out, damn back!

I threw my back out yesterday. I leaned over to get my lunch out of the freezer at work, and my back went *twang!* I am in bed today, missing out on the company picnic. At least it’s a rainy day.

Since I’m not doing anything craftier than heating up a heating pad or putting icecubes in a ziploc, I’ll entertain you with some past FOs.

Here is a hat I made for Veronique, but then never sent because it would only fit her if she became Ginormitron Veronique.

hello, I am fuzzy. and poufy.

Here are the coasters I made for Will.






coaster action shots!

As you can see, the coasters are pink. As you cannot see, unless you looked at a much earlier post, the coasters have hearts on them. Clearly, Will does not have emasculation issues.
