Bugga Boo!

I'm just angry today. No idea why, it's just one of those days. I think I have last-day-of-vacation blues. That, and ANOTHER set of size 5 dpns has gone missing. Well, okay, half a set. I don't know why, but there were only two in my needlecase. . . How does that happen!? I think some sick needle fairy comes and takes them when I'm not using them. . . really. Hopefully, they won't end up in some school official's hands, bent in half.

On a more productive note, I've read Hamlet, Sewn a shirt, and made a few random things on the machine. I've got two patterns in the making, but I have to finish the gloves first. . . (and in order to finish the gloves I NEED MY BLOODY NEEDLES.) Here's a bookmark:

And here's a bucket I made for throwing my flosses into. This was really just practice for the bucket hat sweetie may or may not recieve. . . depending on how competant I am at making it.

I got the sewing pattern from Ric-Rac's Bucket tutorial.

Notice that I appease you all with the spiffy pictures. Hooray! I think I'm going to reorgnize the archives of this blog. THAT should be fun @_@; Heck, maybe I'll rename it and give it a cool look, and move it to typepad as well ;)

Super Exciting Flash Games!

. . . Okay, not really. Not really at all. But, you know, someone out there besides me must have thought: "Hey. . . I'm sure there are knitting-inspired flash games on the internet." No? Um. . .
So I was bored! Anyway. . . I found this monstrosity. It's Korean, but easy enough. Click the red ball of yarn to start, then use the arrow keys to "knit" and use the space bar to switch colors.

So yeah, I'd like to say that obsession with this has been keeping me from posting, but that's not it at all. I'm just hanging out with my boyfriend all the time. . .

KMV (Knitting Music Video)

I just thought it was cute. I can speak French, so I can actually understand the song! :3
