buttoned up

April 15, 2010

i found it.
the perfect button.

(jeg elsker det!)

after finding the perfect button, i headed to the strip district and . . .
let us never speak of the money i spent at loom
i’ll just say,
i have a bag of fabric.
they have a bag of money.

first crochet

April 15, 2010

last night,
in a fit of “i need to f-ing finish something”
i turned to my naalepuder
(that’s danish for pincushion i believe, and the name of the pattern)

i’m not that proficient at crochet.
mostly because i don’t really do it often.
and let’s be real bitches,
most crocheted items are über tacky.
(did i just drop a drama bomb?)

but i find this little buddy to be pretty sweet

and gives me hope for the next generation of hookers

i just have to decide which side is the “right” side.
which do you prefer?

today’s mission,
use my day off to find the perfect buttons.
(my life is so small)
*weep*

but i do believe in bending the shit out of them.
so even though i haven’t cast off two WIP’s yet,
i have started something new:

(pattern – naalepuder, yarn – mochi plus in autumn rainbow colorway)

now let me clarify for all you non-knitters out there.
the rule i had made for myself was that i wouldn’t cast on a new project until i had cast off two in order to get through my backlog.
this little pincushion is crocheted.
you don’t cast on crocheted items.
i have honored the letter of my rule and evicerated its spirit.
(insert devious laugh of your choice)

gotta love a loophole.

i am still working on my girasole,
but i’m finally at the edging.

aint she perty?
