Further proof that jen and i are psychically connected…

jen’s new couch

my new couch

we bought the same couch – without discussing it. we don’t even have the same taste! 900 miles apart and we still do crazy shit like this.

TAAA DAAA!!!!

after over 12 skeins of yarn adding up to more than 3600 yards of yarn, i’ve finished.

it feels great. it wasn’t hard, but a real test of my endurance. i can’t believe that everything i just tried on a whim actually worked.
very happy

i’m leaving for georgia in 5 days.

So imagine stepping out side to have a smoke when you’re half lit and almost planting your bare ass foot on this.


eeeehhh. pile of dead fish on my back patio. so mysterious AND fucking gross.

this happened after a girls night out with these folks

serious fun. i love how julia looks like she’s about 2 feet tall in this pic.

hmm what else? oh i made some stuff, obviously.

a slipcover for this magazine file


and this little teddy bear… yang was kinda afraid of it.

but mostly i’ve been working on this…which is no longer secret since the roamer has somehow managed to a. get internet access & b. find me on myspace. hey babe! hope you like the blanket!
serious afghan progress:

The roamer sent me some yarn for valentines day. it’s acrylic so it’s not really appropriate for a sweater or anything that you would where against your skin but perfect for an afghan because you can just throw it in the dryer when the cat pukes on it.
he sent this baby blue color and some off white. after swatching it up a little i decided if i made a blanket out of it, i would end up with a gigantic baby blanket. so i picked out some complimentary colors and worked up this design using blocks from this book.

so far i have this much finished:

6 blocks – 58 to go

this book is pretty cool because you can knit any block from the book and as long as you use the same needles and yarn they will end up being the same size. so far my blocks have come out pretty close but i think i will need to block the hell out of them. anybody know how to block acrylic?

also: yang muffin peed on my brand new mattress yesterday. any suggestions for getting that out?
