Go Away! (Or is that just me?)

You sit down to write, or read, or draw (basically whatever “it” is that you do) and someone comes and sits down or stands right next to you – or behind you.

Suddenly, you can no longer function.  You can’t concentrate on the page or project before you..  All you can concentrate on are the eyes you imagine looking over your shoulder, trying to sneak a peak at whatever it is your doing.  Those eyes are judging your every move (or reading whatever your trying to read or write).

Am I alone?  Am I the only person who feels this way?  Continue reading → Go Away! (Or is that just me?)

Okay, leave me a link in the comments and I will reblog today through Sunday.  One link per post and please, nothing off-color, racist or generally mean.  Some language is okay, but excessive eff bombs will not be reblogged on my page.

Other than that leave as many links as you would like, but remember to return the favor and reblog this link.

So you don’t know me but… You’ve ruined television for me. FOREVER!!!

Dear People Who Cancel All My Favorite Shows on TV:

WHY???  Seriously…HOW COULD YOU????

Ok, I admit it….I don’t have cable.  I have Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Not because I don’t love your shows, but because I don’t have enough free time during the week to devote to watching television.  So, I guess I could see your argument for me contributing to the low ratings…

However, I am not alone.  Everyday there are more and more of us opting out of regular cable and catching our fav shows the next day (or whenever we have a spare hour) on Hulu.  Or we binge watch when we have a free weekend on Netflix.   HELLOOOOO!!!!!  Are you hearing me????  WE ARE YOUR NEW DEMOGRAPHIC!!!  It’s about time you took us into consideration!

As such, I demand that you bring back the following shows ASAP: Continue reading → So you don’t know me but… You’ve ruined television for me. FOREVER!!!

TARDIS Afghan – Week 2

Hello all!

As I mentioned last week, I have started this Afghan over a few times. In order too avoid that this time, I cheated a little.  So far, the cheat is working for me. I’m over the part I kept messing up! Yay!!! 🙂

The cheat:  Instead of again losing my place in the beginning maze of color switches, I did 20  straight black rows. I’m going to go back over it and sew the gray triangles in later. (I hope that made sense lol) You can see in the below pics where these rows are very easily!

I have a horrible migraine today and can’t look at my computer. But, I wanted to make sure I updated my progress… so I’m using my phone to post. Which may mean this doesn’t work. Wish me luck…

Here is the TARDIS Afghan in its second week:

Some info on this pattern:  It’s 337 stitches across. When finished, it will be (or at least it should be according to the pattern) 9’6″ x 6’4″. I’m using Knitpicks Wool of the Andes. It’s a worsted weight yarn (and one of my favorites). The pattern is available on Ravelry at Doctor Who TARDIS Afghan.

Any questions, just ask. This is a lot of fun to knit! Of course, I’m one of those knitters who enjoys having 2-4 different colors on use at a time so it may not be for everyone lol.

Note to Self: Kill Your Darlings Before They Kill You

Yes, yes I am writing little notes to myself again.  I’ve already confessed my post-it addiction…

Don't Judge me
So, I have no idea who said it first…  I think maybe Faulkner, but the internet fairies are being really stingy with the answers today.  I found 5 other possible originators of the phrase…

KILL YOUR DARLINGS.
