Don't Forget To Knit Awesome!

Knitting our collective way out of a paper bag since 2011

We got haboobed.

Yesterday, as the Twitters and whatnot may have revealed to you, we in AZ were haboobed.  Horribly, horribly haboobed.  Thrust into a universe of dust and horrible Mesa sewage smell, that left a layer of dirt and fallen tree branches in it’s wake.  In the middle of my wife and I moving out of our temporary apartment back into our new on, no less.  So, obviously, my initial reaction was to wonder what I can make for cool summer wear that also turns into a haboob protection garment.

We’re all moved back in now, but the place is a mess.   Because A) we’ve got a two year old and neither of us believe the floor isn’t an all encompassing shelf, and 2) we’re rearranging the whole place to make it neater and better organized.  Because the office says we have to.   But, I finally live in a house with lot’s of bookshelves.   I love that.  Eventually, my house will be all yarn, heroics, books, shelves, and adventures.  Also, globes.

In other, more actually related to this blog news,  I’m getting close to finishing up my first pattern for publishing.  I will put in Ravelry initially, then when I have a few of them, I will open an Etsy store for them as well.  Any suggestions?  I’d appreciate the input of my very few readers.

And to round things out, I’ll just mention that I have converted my friend into an avid comic reader.  The kind that drops a whole paycheck in one trip.  I pretty happy about it.  I think that and his new found hobby of whittling will enrich his life endlessly.  Also, he, up until recently, he hated comics.  I’m just that awesome.  Seriously, I am.  I also invented the word for zombie in ASL.

I’ve got 99 problems, but a stitch ain’t one…

Wow.  Hard week.  Don’t get me wrong, some interesting and cool things have happened, but my dog of 12 years passed.  Really hard on me. That’s why I missed Wednesday’s post.  It would’ve been awesome to come back to some comments, but alas, not everything works for me immediately.  Regardless, I’ll soldier on like Winston Churchill told us to.

I’ve conceived of another pattern, this time for a really cool messenger bag.  It’ll be made for a specific person, and as such, it will only be adjustable from relaxed hanging to tight action ready status.  I’m looking forward to this, because a good bag to use as a on campus bag and biking bag rarely overlaps for me.  Ideally,  the entire knitting community will buy a pattern and I’ll be set for life, and have the freaking amazing prototype for myself, but whatever happens, will happen (mildly self assured, amused chuckle).

So, I’ve been cutting caffeine from my life lately, and in the past two weeks that has been shot down a lot. Between my summer class, and my not sleeping, I’ve desperately needed sweet Xenergy.  And now I’ve got to cold turkey this once again, and I’m not looking forward to the next couple of days.

And that’s about it for what’s happened to me lately,, so return to your real worlds and send your friends this way!

Have a better week than I did, for the rest of forever,

P.S.  I’ll find a picture of my dragging my dog along in a wagon from a few months back for our random content Mondays next week.
