I know I was trying to be better about blogging and all. I hit a wall this week with my medication. Loooong story. But it sucked. Felt like crap for three or four days, but I mostly slept it off last night and today and am doing way better now. (No, really!)
First, to clear up some confusion, the micrometer and stand from the last post aren't pink. Though it'd be hilarious if it was. I've been experimenting with camera settings again, and obviously got the wrong one for that. They're really gray. Maybe the electron microscope will be pink. Or the particle accelerator. Or the tebuchet.
So, when I was feeling human, I would knit on the zombie project. It's getting bigger.
I was kind of worried that it would wind up too small for a short shawl/wrap sort of thing (I was shooting for elbow length) but it's looking good. I've got this much yarn left,
plus an entire second ball. Now I just have to invent some kind of beaded edging for it, that doesn't have a start or stop point. I'm stealing a method from Mario Fortuny and putting beads on the edge to make it drape.
You know those people who say 'internet friends' aren't real friends? Well, they're full of it. In the middle of the worst of my pain and medication woe, someone I know only from the internet overnighted me a care package. It was full of lovely things, and look what she used as packing material:
Lovely. 480 yards. I feel another shawl or wrap coming on. Or perhaps a sleeved short jacket sort of thing. Normally I don't go for browns so much, but this is golden and slightly coppery pinkish and just beautiful.
Not real friends, my butt. I may have felt like a jonesing heroin addict for two days, but I feel really blessed by my friends.
The Goober took a nap today. It was cute.
I used the web cam on my computer to take a photo of myself.
This is what I really look like when hunched over my computer. Like the boofta hair? That's where the Goob gets it from. Anyway, I'm using this as an avatar on both Twitter and Ravelry, and people have complained about how spooky it looks -- I don't think the realize it's an actual picture of me. Heehee.
So, now I'm gonna go knit.
