I should so not have read all of ESC’s blog today.

[Note: I just now remembered that my mom reads my blog. Oops. Sorry, Mom.]

Ah, Evil Science Chick, you truly are evil. This was me about halfway in:

I promise that’s the last you’ll see of the LOLcats on my blog. Maybe.

Anyway, I found my camera cord, so there are pictures Right. I gifted a bear and a scarf since I last showed things to people.

Firstly, the bear was given at a tea party, and the baby’s mother insisted on many photos of the bear, from all angles. Not that I’m complaining.

There was a lovely screen to use as a backdrop, and I think it suits the bear. You can’t really see how lumpy he ended up being, but trust me, he’s lumpy. And he has stumpy arms. I looked at the one at Knitch, and it looks significantly better, which makes me think I overstuffed him by a whole lot. After the kid squishes on him for a couple of years, he should look just fine.

From the front, with the flash. You can kind of see the lumpy part of his head. I’m bad at stuffing things. He’s very soft, though, and about three people carried him around the party before giving him back.

And then we posed with him. All three of us (because the baby’s in the photo, too, kind of hidden-like). His mom is the most awesome pregnant lady ever. I don’t look nearly as good, and I’m not at all pregnant, which says something. Actually, this photo isn’t awful. I’ve had worse. But the bear looks good (and not lumpy).

Then, a week later, I gifted the Orca Tail Scarf to a lady who left the company I work at to go work at another. She likes scarves, and this one ended up being perfect. It even matched the other scarf she was given.

She wore them both all day. I’d post all the other photos, but that’d get silly, so here’s just one, linked to my flickr set:

It really is beautiful. I’ll also post the in-progress photos on Ravelry, if you can see me on there.

Thursday is the big party at work, and I don’t know if I’m ready. Actually, I know I’m not ready. I’ll probably give details later.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

  1. That’s too funny, I just got finished reading that post at ESCs and my comment was DO NOT WANT. Thank God you gave me the lolcat to replace the other visuals that were lodged in my brain.

  2. happygoth says:

    Ah, yes. And I am quite grateful for that.

  3. hey. I did warn readers that a truly horrible analogy was imminent.

    at least I didn’t post pictures!!!!
