My loves

Just having a lazy Sunday afternoon with my love and my laptop. Working on the giveaway prizeee, which I'm slightly anxious about, because no one reads this blog except me. That's okay. If no one else reads it, then no one will know that no one reads this. ahaha.

These are some little amigurumi office buddies I made. I gave the right one to Bethany for her birthday, but this is along the lines of what I'm thinking for the giveaway. The purple one keeps Mr. Rockit company.

Anyway, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, because I know I did!

Hope and Fear

You need to see this series of photos by Phillip Toledano. "Hope and Fear are the external manifestation of the internal desires and paranoia that are adrift in America. "

Giveaway Day!

First year participating in the Giveaway Day from Sew Mama Sew!
I'll be making something very special- to be announced before December 2nd! Winners will be picked in an exciting random way, and I will send you something handmade! Still haven't decided what to make yet, but it will be spectacular, this I promise.


Yesterday Chevy sniffed out a centipede. Gross. Those creatures and I have a long standing feud. Fight to the death. There was the time I had a faceoff with one in the Miniapple Montessori kitchen, and I won (thank you), and the time I encountered one in the hallway and we danced a battle tango. Yes, I very strongly dislike those guys. Least favorite bug. Ever. I even can stand spiders more, at least they are cunning and useful. Centipedes are just nasty.

I just google image searched centipede to show you a picture, but was so grossed out and just couldn't bring myself to do it.

Besides that, I'm feeling sewing machine withdrawal. I keep thinking of all these great home decoration projects for the empty space, but I can't do anything! I feel like I've lost my daemon (Golden Compass reference).

But I have decided, I'm going to make a pseudo fireplace :D because then I can pretend I live in a cabin.

How cute is this? Got the free pattern from Spud & Chloe's new blog, can't wait to make it! It'll match the cupcake sugar dish I'm making in ceramics! Yes!!!

Good Morning Sun

So first, is a finished product picture of the light blue cabled sweater I was working on for Chevy Monster.

Pretty quick knit up, if I had actually sat and done it all at once.

Started another sweater for him, I'm going to see how fast I can crank these out and start putting them on etsy.

Today on the agenda is to take my car to the shop and say FIX ME. I'm so sick of this darn car, seriously. It's such a headache. 2 weeks ago someone takes out my driver's side mirror going like 700 in a 35 at 5 in the morning. This week the tire is flat so we change it to a spare, and lo and behold my battery is dying and refuses to start half of the time without a jump.

We drove it here because we didn't have any other choices, but I'm wishing we looked harder for alternatives.

Not going home for Thanksgiving, but I suppose this is my new home. Lots of food with friends though, that is for sure. :D

I'm thankful for my lovely friends and boyfriend, and for making this move quite adjustable and smooth. What are you thankful for?

Things are looking swell

I have all this lovely free time, so I figure it's about time to make the most of things and get bettyrockit off the ground. So I'm going to start my massive attempt ( at least that's what I'm forecasting) at starting bettyrockit and selling my stuff. Park Slope and Manhattanites eat it up. And anyone else for that matter that would like custom made dog and childrens' sweaters as well as gifts for the holidays made from all recycled materials. We'll see how far this goes.
