*sigh* i made a huge mistake ten rows in and had to rip back to the ribbing. i just simply wasn't paying attention. what's a girl to do?

in my case, i distracted myself with halloween costuming. we're going to a punk-themed party so i just got myself a big 'ole the clash shirt and had at it!

halloween 208

ahh, the magic of safety pins and punk couture!

and now i leave 'yall with some photos of the animals making themselves at home because... well. just look at them!

now that i look more closely, maeve looks awfully mad at me! but i don't think mr b has it in him to look mad. just mildly disapproving!

debates require stiff drinks

participating, watching, whatever. i'm not sure i need the additional stress but maybe i'm a masochist. or maybe some things are just too important. yeah, it's the latter.

on a happier, personal note, yesterday i was invited to this. i'm trying to decide which morning and afternoon sessions to attend - so many fabulous panels and q&a sessions with amazing people. i will see bono IN PERSON. somebody pinch me!

what'cha got cookin'?

cookin' a sweater

remember jemima? she was relegated to the UFO pile almost a year ago, and i don't quite remember why. i think it had something to do with the seams. which are perfectly fine so... she's finished. and baking.

also remember the laura sweater? i was tooling around on ravelry yesterday and was shocked to discover that nine people somehow dug up the pattern and *gasp* knit it! someone even recommended it as a good starter sweater for teens on the forums. all of which means i have to official register as a designer on ravelry so i can update the pattern listing. yay me!

i've been MIA for a bit because i've been in orlando visiting my sister. orlando is a strange place. the evidence:




my favorite is the fleur de lis lobster. now i'm off to the movies! happy saturday!
