*embarrassingly sneaks back onto blog* H-hey, guys! I bet you’re wondering where I’ve been! Right? No? Ehm . . .
Anyway, one of the many reasons I haven’t posted in a while, thus breaking my vow to post at least twice a week, is that I have been furiously working on my book, Tales from Metsä, as well as trying to dig myself out of the pit of homework my teachers have dropped me in. Ms. Walker, if you’re reading this now, please ignore this post. IGNORE IT.
But part of my short break from posting is because of this.
Aren’t the little booties cute? I’ve needed to find something suitably mindless to crochet while I watch Doctor Who/read/do math. Yes, I can crochet during math. Bow to my awesomeness. These booties aren’t all that I’ve made. I’ve also finished this!
Isn’t it cute?! The booties were from Ravelry, the hat was my own pattern, and the top is actually two filled-in granny squares with sleeves added in. Also this.
Isn’t it CUTE?! This set took me the longest. The booties and hat were a cinch, but the jacket took some rereading of patterns and unraveling of stitches. The pants took me the longest, I think. But they are so cute. Right?
Oh, this dress! It was easy enough to make the top part (pink) but the skirt. Ugh. And it pooled. It pooled. I would have been fine with either the scattered pooling (top half of skirt) or the striped pooling (bottom half) but both of them? NO. Never again. No. At least not with the rainbow yarn.
Currently, I am making this for my little brother’s birthday. His birthday is March 17, St. Patrick’s Day. Fexnox, if you’re reading this, butt out!
It’s going pretty slowly. I’ve just worked on it while he isn’t here (at school, I mean) and seeing as I do my homework until around 3pm and then take a break, I only have about 45 minutes before he gets home and barges into my room. The head is emerging, though.
I want to do a giveaway. Would you guys like it if I did a giveaway? *readers scream ‘Yes’* OK. I’m doing a giveaway. How about this hat?
I like this hat. Yes. It’s settled, then. I’m gonna post about my hat giveaway soon. As to what color it is, that will be a surprise. What I’m working on? I’ve been eying this weeping angel for a while. THE ANGELS HAVE THE PHONE BOX, YOU GUYS.
Oh frick, a weeping angel! DON’T EFFING BLINK. I was thinking of making some of these to creep out my Whovian family. Maybe one in this position, one with hands lowered, one with ‘claws’, and one with arms extended? I could change them out every few days and see if anyone noticed. It would do a good job of teaching the Whovians in this house not to blink. Sadly, I have not found a pattern for the Silence yet. Or a sonic screwdriver. I want a sonic. Badly.
Or, if I’m not gonna make a swarm of angels, I will make this cow. I like this cow. Very very much.
And I have just realized that the title of this post has no relation to the content. So it’s time to write about library stuff. First of all, a very loved librarian from the Bloomingdale Library in my area is moving to a different one. And she’s leaving on Saturday. I’m part of a group she runs, so when she broke the news to us–this was in the library room, by the way–people could hear us screaming ‘NOOOOOOO’ all the way in the library itself. Our room is sort of away from the main area. OH MISS SONIA PLEASE DON’T GO!
*sniff* So, as a goodbye present, I am making her something. Pictures to come in a future post. Maybe.
