Blankets During Summer

I've finished my hexagon blanket. I'm too lazy to put a edging on it, but, it's done.

I also finally started on Daddy's Sweater, but I took a break from it to make this bag:

But really, I've been doing more thinking than crocheting lately.

Ah, maybe there'll be a picture of Daddy's Sweater on my next post.

Hope you like this graphic. I do.=)

What I learned in school about earthquakes:

Curl up next to the wall and cover you head.
Pray that nothing falls on you.
Wait until your teacher tells to get up.
Go about your business.

Nothing prepared me for the earthquake today. I was sitting on the floor in my room, prepping my poster for the wall, when all of the sudden, the ground started to shake and Momma's china started clinking.

We freaked out.

She called Daddy, and after a few minutes, hung up, then turned on the TV.

(We watch CBS, BTW)

Scott Pelly came on and said that there's been an earthquake... it was classified as 5.9.


I honestly, never thought that there would be an earthquake here in NC. WOW.

So, after struggling to find CNN (It's NOT 205 or 202 on ours, it's 200. Figures.), I got on Facebook to see my friends' reactions.

I had three notifacations. Two on a "Happy Birthday" message I left a good friend, and a friend request. Jennifer Lawrence friended me!!!!!!

(Cue cricket noises)

She's an actress, mostly Indie movies. She's now currently filming the film adaption of my all-time favorite books, The Hunger Games, in Concord, NC, just less than an hour away from where I live! EEEEKKKK!!!!!


Fan shrieking aside, I organized my yarn stash yesterday. I sorted through lots of acrylic, and threw together what I couldn't/didn't want. I also wound up some yarn with my winder, and I have a blanket planned for after I finish my current blanket. =)

I have one picture of that hexagon blanket, and it's not very good, but here it is anyways:

I've been curling up with it, watching the BBC America channel, watching Top Gear, a new fave show.

Miss Kitty is Home!

We saw her today coming home from town. She's old and skinny.

She never liked the car, so I walked to the house, calling her so she would follow me, and I eventually picked her up and brought her in. She was still scared, so we put her on the porch, gave her some food (And Rascal and Squirt).

Pictures? Yeah, Right.

We started school back(since we can't go outside AT ALL), and now we're doing this laid-back style that's been paid for by a heavy price- a lot of arguing and facepalms. We've got it figured out, and hopefully Momma (and me) can understand all this.

Like I told Daddy last night,

"They just teach me the same stuff over and over, only beefing it up each go-round."

And, to help me keep my sanity, I decided to find ways to help me focus. I crochet hats while I read. I listen to Orchestra music while doing Math, English, etc.

I finally got Daddy's sweater planned! I ordered some(just two) cable/Aran/Celetic knitting books off of Amazon so I could study the cable and try to convert them to crochet.

I have the yarn, the idea I want of shaping, yadda yadda yadda.

I just need to know how big Daddy would like it. Hmm... Looks like I'll either be measuring Daddy himself or one of his sweatshirts.

I hope to have some pictures of my hats later on.

Talk to you soon.

Heat Wave

It's been hot like heck here, so I don't go outside during noon/afternoon/any-time-past-10-AM.

Well, out apple trees have been dropping apples, so guess who got to rake/clean them up?

I did.

It was HOT, and I just came in just a few minutes after 10.

With crocheting, I put up some of the big stuff and resorted to quick projects. It's hot, they're lighter, and I was instant results.

So what? The heat's made me inpaient.

Here are my projects from Monday to today:

Ah, I'm gonna go cook lunch. See ya later.
