Those are the shorn buttocks of my poor pathetic cat.

While normally quite fuzzy and adorable…

…he now looks like a tiny grey lion and I swear I can hear the other cats giggling.

Just so this post stays on topic, here are the beginnings of a pillow I’m making:

Also, my ripple is coming along, just 800,000 stitches to go.

And here is a card I am particularly proud of:

I hand cut all the pieces.  The paper is Basic Grey, cut from the front cover of one of their stacks.  See?  I’m thrifty.

Eat. Sleep. Ripple.

Yeah, it’s icanhascheezburger in the background.  I’m one of those.

But look!  Look how big it is!

My cat is also enjoying the process and I am enjoying crocheting with saliva soaked yarn.

March 17, 2009

So I am moving into a new house (meaning, not my parents house anymore THANK GOD) and I am full into “I’m poor, but I need to nest!” mode.  So while I’m horrified at the thought of having to pack up all of my craft supplies (They have taken over my closet.  And my floor.  And my car.  And my chair.), I am also an idiot and have decided to start a new project, complete with a new bag of yarn.  YAY!  Who needs food and shelter when you can have bags full of half-started crochet projects?

I was particularly inspired by this flickr pool : Hexagon Love

Which lead me to create this one hexagon.

Which took forever.  And when I read that I would need over 150 of these little bitches, I decided to move on.  I guess I now have a coaster.

So then I found this blog:  No-End-in-Sight Ripple-Along and then this Flickr Pool, and I decided to go for it.

So here I have the very beginning of what will probably turn out to be a scarf but what I’m hoping will be a cozy throw for my……  NEW HOUSE YAY!

My cat enthusiastically approves.

So here we go.  If I don’t blog ever again it’s because my fingers fell off whilst making a ripply blanket.
