1. These fingerless mitts were designed and knitted 7 times over, and ripped a total of 6 times. 

    ("what are you knitting now?" version 5.0 of the same thing)

    Designing is hard (said in the way you say, “math is hard”)—you know how there’s something in your head you want to say and it just comes out like next day’s Chinese food take out verbal diarrhea (No?  Okay).  Well designing is like that.  Is it really?  I’m not so sure.  I had a metaphor in my head.  This was not it.

    Don’t get me wrong, these mitts are still gorgeous.   Everything I make and touch is pure brilliance.  Except when I cook.  That always turns out pure shit.  Sugar is not Salt.  But I digress. Again. 

    This is a commission, so I had constraints to work with—I may revisit these and knit the dirty Chinese food in my head.  What?

    I’m stopping now.

About me

It's not a blog. I have a journal. Blogs are for jerks and losers. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to get back to my young adult novel about a 17 year old cryogenically frozen girl who is hell bent on solving the mystery of her premature thaw, 50 years before her spaceship completes its 3 century long trip to her new home planet, Centauri-Earth.
