Pretty decent, so far.

This weekend has been, at least.

I didn’t sleep in this morning, but I have discovered that this is not such a bad thing. I ended up finishing some artwork I had needed to finish, and did 4 loads of laundry (all sheets and towels; I am lazy). I played with the cats. I made some tea. I read the internets.

In the meantime, there was a festival going on in the park across the street.So in the afternoon, I spent a few hours on the porch with the husband, watching passers-by, knitting, and really enjoying that the police kept yelling at people not to park on the wrong side of the street. But you know what gets you that parking spot? Being a cute girl. Oh, Atlanta PD.

West End park by you.

(We went exploring later, and came home with jerk chicken and champagne cola. It was delicious.)

Hatman on Porch by you.

(The husband and his project. He’s a really awesome sculptor. No, I can’t tell you about the project.)

I got loads of knitting done. By loads I mean finishing the heel on the Interlocking Leaves socks.

interlocking leaves, deflated by you.

(Right after my triumphant heel completion. I got myself a beer for this.)

May progress, Interlocking Leaves by you.

It’s important to try these things on. Well, mostly because I’d never done a toe-up flap heel, but the sock fits beautifully, so I must have done it sort of okay.

Nice Afternoon by you.

Yeah. It was a good afternoon.

Oh! And I also have made some progress with the making things part of this SCA craziness, in that I made a bunch of little tassels. I put the pearls on one of them, but it looks like a Dalek. I am working on figuring out a way to put the pearls on the bottom of the tassel without having to put them on one-by-one after I make the tassel (the difficulty of doing things this way is why there are only two pearls on that part at the moment.

Tassel, attempt 1 by you.

(Oh mah gawd, I coold so tewtally hawt-glue them thangs on! Yeah! No.)

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.

    “Fashion Dalek”… ROFL. “Destroy faux pearls.. Destroy!!” Dude.. I think you need a sonic screwdriver to put together fashion daleks… not hot glue.
