Critical mass! (Not the bike kind.)

Look at this beautiful uke. JUST LOOK AT IT.

And then BEHOLD THIS THING:

(Sorry Twitter/FB folks; I’m reusing photos because it is midnight and I am lazy.)

I think I may have too many hobbies.

No, really.

Remember how last week I said I’d learned to marble paper? Well, this week things are at eleven, or rather I have not only completed most of my first embroidery project (shown above), but I also learned to play the ukelele (also shown above). This sounds very impressive except that the embroidery is totally lopsided and I can only play a few chords on the uke (and not very well), and that I took piano for 14 years as a child/adolescent. But the ukelele! I get that whole playing-until-your-fingers-bleed thing now. And also, I hate metallic thread.

Anyway. If you look at all the new things I’ve done this year so far, it is thus:

Kathak, ukelele, paper marbling, brick stitch, lace shawl. And this year is only one month long! Screw you, 2010. 2011 totally kicks your ass.

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 agree, 2011 has been pretty sweet so far. But are you getting any sleep for all that?
