Ember, Sparks, and Yonwood

Been reading less than I have wanted to lately. Been working on The Prophet of Yonwood since I bought it last month. It's been good so far. It is a prequel to The City of Ember, which was the first book in the trilogy, People of Sparks being the second.

Young adult fiction is always SO interesting to me because there is none of the wordy filler that found in adult (not erotic, just the stuff that is found in the plain old fiction section) fiction books. They are fun, quick reads that capture your interest to the very end.

Duo! Kia! rah Rah RAH!!!

Well. Beat Duo again. Oh yeah. What!? Who's Duo??? Yeah, Anthony knows, shame on you guys. Well, he's the final boss from Megaman Battle Network 4: Red Sun (though the image is of DuoSP).

Still have the Kia. Jerking me around....

Happy 100th Post, everybody...

New Car about to be Not Our Car

Paul Monaco = JerkFace

Well, this sucks. Our 2003 Kia Spectra is about to be NOT our 2003 Kia Spectra. Have an apointment arount 11h00am tomorrow to look at a Saturn that we may get financed for. Grr. I hate dealerships.

WIP Week - Candy Heart Pillow

Well, it isn't necessarily a WIP, because I didn't get pictures of it in progress, just the finished product. Most excellent. It came (hehe) from the book DoniKnitrix book by Jennifer Stafford. Good book. Cute patterns. Will probably be working out of it for a while.

Fig. Uno - Here we have a finished product of the candy heart pillow pattern, modeled by our very own Anthony Wayne at Panera. Stuffed with premium acrylic stuffing from Michaels. Now that is one sexy yarn craft.

Fig. B - Here we have the knit one side, pearl other side pattern for the front and back of the heart. Very simple. Very tres chic. Also, it isn't that orange, it is more like the colour in Fig. Uno. This is actually the first thing that I have knitted that wasn't a scarf. Very exciting. Took six hours total. Not bad for having to rip out almost an entire heart twice. :)

Fig. III - Here we have the pearl-only fabric for the sides. Also, very easy. Annoying as hell, but easy.

WIP Week - The Never-Finished Scarf

Fig. 1 - This is the scarf that I have been working on for Anthony since the dawn of frigging time, and I just can't seem to want to finish it. For the longest time it seemed to be just fine in how it was coming along. It took no time at all in the beginning and now it feels like it will never finish. Maybe like each row that I knit is actually just disappearing into my hammer space. Somewhere there is a HUGE scarf...

Fig. 2 - The yarn is the type that is pretty much thread with wool wrapped around it. Beautiful colors. :)

Fig. 3 - With this I cast on an even amount of stitches and have continued the pattern of knit 1 pearl 1 every row.

The pictures will be missing from the post underneath this one until I repost them on photobucket, because I was an idiot and deleted them. :)

WIP Week - Skirt-Bag

Fig.1 - Okay, so I started working on this purse from a skirt that I knew I would never wear again, mostly because the waist-band was only large enough to use as a bag strap. Either way, this is what I began with.

Fig. 2 - I had a left-over zipper from when I was obsessed with them and wanted to sew them onto everything. But when I put the zipper on, I forgot to make it the middle layer, resulting in this ugly finish on the inside. That and it wouldn't lay flat for anything.

Fig. 3 - So, instead of panicking, I took the liberty of adding another liner, to which I sewed on another zipper in the side so that I could still sew the liner on and not have to worry about trying to turn it inside-out through a small hole, and then having to hand-sew the rest.

Fig. 4 - And here you have my finished project, which I took the liberty of adding a shit-ton of buttons to.

All-in-all, it was a fantastic project that took no longer than six hours. :)

Thinking about quitting.

Well, I just had to wait outside for twenty-six minutes outside of Lincoln with six black guys hollering, "yo, bitch" at me. Carl's take, "oops, sorry". Called once and asked whoever if they were in Linc, they said yah, I said let me in please, they said okay, and hung up. I had to call back again and Ryan let me in. It's ridiculous. It makes me mad. I want to go home. Think I will.
