I fucking love No-Doz.

I am getting back to normal. How do I know? I'm setting stupid goals for myself again, and sometimes meeting them, thanks to the glory of caffeine. This is what I've knit in the past two days:
Two sleeve cuffs. With luck, I'll get the sleeves done in the next week. Maybe less, at this rate. Unless the caffeine burns a hole in my gut first. (Kidding. Really kidding. I'm not taking that much.)

Spinning? Almost done with that, too. And I can't wait, 'cause I'm a little tired of orange. For now. There's this much to go:
Then the plying, then, hell, then I'll probably knit something with it until I'm doubly sick of orange. But next? For a break?

I'm spinning those socks I meant to do.
Whee, ha!

In a fine example of the internet corrupting me, well... there's this company called Konad. They've developed this method of using nail polish for what is, essentially, printing on your nails. It's sort of intaglio meets offset lithography; no one seems interested in giving it an official name, in the trade. I'd heard about it, seen videos, and, well.
I got a starter kit.
Look! A butterfly!

Oh, and one last thing.
Sekhmet, you... freak. Funny how diets make everyone crazy. Now we have scientific proof.

Yay leaves! Can't wait to see the final belled sleeves.

Konad is AWESOME. I got a set of their stamps for Christmas. It actually makes me want to paint my nails! (And I think I have that exact plate. I got three of decals and one of various "tips" for French manis/pedis.) Have you tried using normal nail polish for the stamping? It varies on the brand, but sometimes it's easier to get garish colors that way than special ordering them.

ZOMG the nail thing is so cool. Why must you tempt me with fun hair colors AND cool nail stuff?

Is graduating from a fucker to a freak progress?

Oh, I love the nails, so cute :)

I'm a big fan of orange, but I had to restrain myself a little while ago when I realised that all my WIPs were at least partly orange - a little too much for anyone I think!

S'ok Sekhmet. I've had days like that too.

Love the nail foofoos. Now if only I could grow pretty fingernails . . .

Knitting rocks! Lovely leaves.

That blue sock roving is a lovely sigh of a color. Ahhhhh.

Love the purty nails, and Sekhmet? Has always been a freak! The leaves are just... so much fun. I love them!
