I've decided a weekly progress report is needed for the granny stripe blanket, now named The Monster. It's coming along quite... well, not quickly by any stretch. Just coming along. Slow and steady, with very few bouts of shrieking and cussing. Although I have learned to hate the way the end of the yarn is always lost in a parallel dimension inside the skein. Seriously, end-of-yarn. I hate you.
I am loving my colors though! It makes me happy to look at. It's surpassing scarf-width now; a couple nights ago I put it on like one and pretended it was strangling me. And then the man took my drink away.
Last night I picked up some yarn to try to crochet some little amigurumi fishies or owls or something. My friend Jacquie over at Life Lived Gracefully inspired me to try it. She's just chock full inspiration and aspiration, seriously check her out. (Wait... is that a word? I mean she aspires to stuff. Not that she is aspirated. I think that means having a breathing apparatus or something. She definitely doesn't have one of those. She is a fully-functioning breather. holy shit I'm way off track.)
Amigurumi will be another brand spanking new hobby for me. We shall see how long my attention holds out. Isn't the yarn pretty though? The picture does not do it justice; that yellowish color is actually this really gorgeous chartreuse that my eyes just want to make out with. It's yummy.
And this is how the man entertains himself when I drag him to craft stores:
In closing I leave you with a philosophical question. Why, when tracking back a link to my blog did I find it listed under "Tu Zagladam?" Google tells me it means "DOOM HERE" in Polish. Apparently I need to apologize to the Polish. I'm sorry, Poland. I will stop dooming.
Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed it, or if you're thinking "thanks a lot, now I need a drink," follow me! I am also on Pinterest and Bloglovin'. I promise I don't usually spread doom.
