Out of it.

Sitting here on the bed with kitty afghan progressing at a snail's pace. Just don't have the energy.

GooGoo's little feet are flailing about merrily. Not comfortable - feels like a sideache. However, I am thankful he is active.

I'm amazed at how much I can accumulate on my work table in a week.


I've found several balls of yarn, two crochet projects, a stack of old diaries, all my art stuff I've been using, my coloured pencils scattered hither and yon, just to name a few of the items thereon. I'm almost done now. I got a file folder for my crochet/knit patterns, so those are safely squirreled away now. Finished the crocheted kitty, except for eyes and a nose because I can't find my tiny buttons. Will look later. I took a picture anyway. He came out all right, but I think I'll not give him away because I could improve it.

Speaking of the kitty, things I would change:

1. Use a softer yarn to begin with, like the all-cotton yarn or even the homespun type or that microfibre stuff. Regular acrylic yarn has no give and kitty feels completely un-cuddly.
2. Enlarge the pattern. He's about 8" high, which is really cute and everything, but I was envisioning something a bit bigger, at least 12".
3. I think even a tinier yarn would help - baby yarn, even. Something you could use a really small hook with, so that the stitches don't seem so huge.
4. I'm also not really happy with the ears - they are not quite pointy enough to please me.

Better luck next time. It's a really cute pattern and I think with those changes it could make a lovely toy.

We just finished lunch. I spent most of the morning working on the front panel of the skirt of the crocheted dress. Listening obsessively to my Judy Collins radio station on Pandora.

Working on herbal audio. Uber fun. :-X

It has been deliciously cool here today. Dan had all the doors and windows open until I got actually cold around lunchtime and started shutting them. Still feels really nice. According to Dashboard it is 74 out. I can dig that.

I did a couple hours of herb keywords this morning. I'm on page 4 of 4 in the product editor, so I'm almost done. But only with keywords. The herb projects never end. Blah. I also created a lattice in Illustrator for Dan in oh, five minutes. He had already invested waaaaaaaaaaay too much time trying to make some texture in Fireworks work. Silly boy.

ANYWAY... picture time, picture time!

First of all, an update on the green potted things. )

Second of all, an update on the sweater I started yesterday. )

So... this has been my day. How are you?

And I'm hungry.
Anyway, so has been my day.
