New craft!

Rather, an old one, revisited, which is more an art than a craft, being paintings on canvas.

At any rate, my long-missing painting muse (I have not seen it since September of 2004) has returned, and I have a couple of freshly-primed canvases sitting in my den, waiting for more exciting paint. I have Ideas. Hopefully there will be documentation soon, too.

Did no knitting last night, although I’d intended to. Instead, I cleaned up some in anticipation of a house guest, ate dinner, and then watched Namastey London again (which although sappy and dumb, never fails to make me weepy) while priming said canvases. They were paintings I did in college that I really really hate now, so it saved me from both ugly wallcoverings and spending money on more canvases, which ultimately saves me some space (canvases really do take up a lot of it, except when you hang them up). Gross fact: weevils do not change the flavor of lentils, especially if you are not picky, go to the trouble of picking them all out, and are both ravenously hungry and lazy. Which I was. And now you know a whole lot more about me and my proclivities than you ever wanted to know.

I’ll leave you to think on that for a bit.

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.

    I have a canvas downstairs that you can have if you would like. I bought it when I thought I would try painting on canvas, but apparently my muse packed up, changed it’s name and cell number, went to a gender reassignment center in Taiwan, and took a position with a remote pilgrimage site somewhere in Europe.

    I bought it at Pearl and it is still in the plastic.
