Project 365, Day 54: Pop Art!

Day 54: Pop Art!, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

Didn't feel like pulling out the camera at all today (working on crochet projects; yes, there will be pictures of those very soon :D), so Connor and I monkeyed around in Photobooth.

Here we are, as Pop Art. :)

Don't talk to me about queued projects. I am holding YOU responsible for this!!!!!! Because I made a decision yesterday, one which I'm sure I'll REGRET for DECADES TO COME (Assuming I keep enough of my sanity to feel emotions like "regret"):

I've decided I can no longer avoid knitting. I just keep seeing things to make that are TOO CUTE, and I have to be able to make them. So, I got myself a copy of "Stich'N Bitch," and I'm going to re-learn how to knit. So, that project queue? Expect it to become even longer. Bwahahahahahaha!

Next month, when I start making comments here and there about home spinning, remind me that I swore never to get interested in that, okay? *head desks*

(I have no willpower when it comes to crafts. Well . . . to be fair, that's not entirely true. I went to That Yarn Store yesterday, and drooled over the cool yarns they have, but I only bought three skeins, and all for charity baby projects. I decided that I want to have a project in mind before I go buying a bunch of gorgeous yarn @ $14 a skein. Still, just knowing they're there is making it hard not to go back and buy a bunch. OMG the gorgeous multi-color things they make now! So pretty).

Urgh. I probably need a yarn icon. The sewing one just isn't quite cutting it for me anymore.

Nice one. :D And I'll keep the spinning thing in mind. Really I will. ;)

Yarns are really, really evil. In our experience, it takes 1-2 years to get over the crazed urge to buy, and then only because you've accumulated so much that you start to feel guilty about it. But! There are some good, cheap options out there. Knit Picks is a great inexpensive option, as long as you have the patience to not have the instant gratification factor. *looks at ceiling innocently* Their Shine and Shine Worsted are awesome baby yarns. (Their interchangeable needle sets are also a great starter set to get you going.)

The other good thing about knitting? It's much easier to do without looking at it (unlike crochet). That's how I got back into it - I was working on my dissertation and knitting socks at the same time, to give my hands something to do.
