the Monster. But I've been hidden away in the remote forests of the Blue Ridge Mountains for the last week celebrating my five year anniversary with the man. It has been pleasant and relaxing in only the way complete and unforgiving abandonment of suburban civilization can be. This cabin in the lofty wilderness has been like a creative juicemaster, squeezing every bit of moisture and pulp out of my fruity brain.
Hmm. That was a weird metaphor. Did I mention oxygen is in short supply up here? Anyway, I thought it might be prudent to give you a real idea of just how ginormous this blanket really is. Meet the Monster:
I've also worked up a tiny, cute, googly eyed amigurumi crochet owl out of that luscious chartreuse yarn. If you follow me on twitter (and you do, right? RIGHT??) you saw a sneaky hipstamatic pic of it. A post featuring the adorableness is coming soon, I promise.
Aaaaannnd. A bit of sketching. I used to do a lot of calligraphy and still love to work with pure inks and specialty nibs. I scratched this out this morning while watching the sun rise through the storm clouds; just some scribbles as the coffee kicked in.
Don't forget to follow me. I may have promised a ray-gun, beefy bodyguard, and an official membership speedsuit to new minions in my last post, but I'm afraid the ray-guns were intercepted by customs. The bodyguards are still beefy though.
