Nothing a spot of green tea can't fix.
So I took a hiatus from life last week, and today's Knit Tips Tuesday is about working with double-pointed needles. Sometimes I curse them, and other times I adore them...it really depends on the day. I guess it boils down to how fiddly I'm feeling; while I can sing like an angel, I can also fuck up with the best of them and slide pretty things right off of a pair of double-pointed needles.
Here is the article:
And then, I listed my May Scarf Pattern of the Month on Etsy. It's named after a town in France, since it's sort of a French-girl scarf. The feedback has been positive so far, including from our friends at Knitting Fever, who manufacture and distribute Sublime Yarns:
So there you go. Today, I will be formatting June's pattern, drinking more green tea and eating bits of food my body can actually play with and digest (as opposed to chocolate sugar cookies, which was what my diet mostly consisted of yesterday), and maybe clip a coupon or two and save some cash at the grocery store. I should also make an effort to try and finish the sample of the June scarf, even though the pattern is done, the blocking is half done, the yarn is still gorgeous...
Or I'll take a nap. I'm not feeling very motivated.
But hey...the bright side is that I wrote an article, I posted a pattern for sale, I got in my car and drove across the county line for cheaper sales tax on hot water, and I have short-term ambition. Maybe today will be lovely after all!
And finally, for those of you who missed the photo of Bluto proving he is the most useless of all pit bulls, completely incapable of mauling joggers even if they were wearing Lady Gaga's meat dress, here is the proof. By the way, we just looked over and saw him this way...it's not as if we staged the pillows on him:
Have a good day! Make like Bluto. Pile yourself between a bunch of pillows as if you are the creme filling of an Oreo cookie.
