FO: Camping at the Courthouse

My friend got married!  I made her a shawl!

 Campside [Rav] by Alicia Plummer; knit with a skein and a half of Malabrigo Sock in colorway 856 Azules





They are very happy with their shared shawl.

Exeunt.



p.s. thank you, military and civilian veterans, for your service.
p.p.s. today is an anniversary for me, so I want to tell my parents that I love them.

Frozen Fractals and Feeling Fried

Like all procrastinators, I ruminate for a while over something before committing it to paper.
And like all flaky people, I think I've already done a thing, when in actual fact, very often, I have not done that thing.  Not even close.

What I mean to say is: there has been SO MUCH BLOGGING in my head, you guys!  It just hasn't made it to your computer screen, or even to my fingers.  My brain is a withholding jerk.

It doesn't help that the secret gigantic knitting behemoth thing is still very much a thing, and I offer you this as proof of stuff happening:
What could it beeeeee?

Oh!  And Halloween happened!  This is the first entirely-crocheted thing I've ever made: the unicorn, the Impossible Girl, the creation that was never meant to be:
Quick easy snowflakes for yarn [Rav] by Rebecca Weber; crocheted with, like, 20 yards of an unknown worsted weight acrylic

It's a snowflake, stiffened with school glue gel, used as an accessory in the Queen Elsa costume of one Punkin Q. Pie.  She uses it a little like a Spiderman webshooter, pretending to shoot snow and ice at people?
There are sound effects.
