beach day


I took Monday off from work and decided to go to the beach. The quality of the light during autumn is amazing, especially at the coast. It was cold enough to wear a hoodie, knit hat and scarf, but still warm enough that when my feet got wet, it wasn't uncomfortable. You *have* to get your feet wet at my favorite beach in order to access the majority of it.

Been playing Little Big Planet on the weekends. The game really is wonderful.

After several years of being good, I've started regularly drinking coffee again. Sticking with one small cup a day, and so far I've been trying to limit it to three times a week. If it starts affecting my skin/complexion, I'm going to have to cut it out again.

hats for a sack [Oct. 26th, 2008|12:25 pm]

sackboy earflap hat


I've been having some fun knitting hats for my Sackboy. Since he's small, his hats are tiny and that means quick, instantly gratifying knits.

I've already posted the snow hat with pom pom, but the striped beanie and the earflap ones I knit this past week. The black and grey striped beanie I made so that it resembles a unisex beanie I bought several years ago (before I learned to knit). The orange earflap one just *needed* to be done. Sackie's cuteness just demands an earflap hat! I added in the bit of colorwork to break up all that orangeness.

All the hats were pretty much improvised. I looked at some patterns to get the technique for the earflap one (I've never done earflaps or had to pick up stiches before), but otherwise it was just estimating cast-on and how many rows to knit to get the right scale for Sackie.

I'll be putting the needles down for a while (except for olives!). As long as there aren't any more surprise delays, Little Big Planet should be arriving this week and I intend to get playing next weekend. After that, Mirror's Edge is soon approaching. No, I won't be knitting Faith!

sackboy and lemon


I made a new friend. Literally. And apparently he likes lemons too.

If you haven't heard of Sackboy, star of the highly-anticipated, soon-to-be-released Playstation 3 video game Little Big Planet, go view this game trailer. Now, now, now! Don't blame me if you die from cute overload. Go on, I'll wait.

See what I mean?

wip


I haven't had the chance to knit anything more than olives in quite a while, but this past weekend was a nice time to get back into it. A little bit of rain put me in the mood. I've started to work on a new pattern.

The above picture shows some of what I worked on over the weekend. I'm not going to say what it is yet, but I think (hope?) that it will turn out nice enough to show off the finished project once it's complete. My goal is to finish before the end of this month.

Unfortunately I won't be able to share the actual pattern for this project (I'll explain why once I'm done), but as always seems to be the case when doing pattern design, I am enjoying the challenge of trying to figure out shaping and how to pull everything together.
