WIP-it Wednesday: video edition

Here are a few links for you, kittens. I hope that wasn’t too painful to watch. It’s surprisingly hard to stay on-task while talking.  If this becomes a regular feature, I may need a lap-top and a more visually quiet space to film in.  The camera had a hard time deciding what to focus on.  It probably doesn’t help that I move around too fast for it to follow easily either.  D;

♥ My Color Affection
Amineko: the pattern I can never seem to complete
Uma (not Ume) by Chic Knits.
♥ And I did manage to alter the color a smidge with the editing program: so they’re truer-to-life now than they were in the original video.
♥ It’s really…fun to try and explain to a 4 year old why her vulva can not be plastered all over the internet.  OY.  Time for some Kraken.

I hope it’s starting to cool off where you all are, and you can get some relief from the heat!  I’m going to continue crafting and setting up my area here, as well as do projects around the rest of the house.  I’m also looking to refresh my blog design finally.  It’s about due again.

August 2012: wrap-up

Pi miles, kittens. Pi. Miles. AHEM.

This yardage was really hard-earned for the month.  Most of it was from my Color Affection which I would think is about half done, though it’s hard to gauge on a project of its type.  I have to admit that I’m a little dismayed at how little yardage it actually is for all of the knitting I’ve been doing.  This project may be the death of me.  The soft, cashmere/silk blended death of me.

Onto September and hopefully finishing up my Color Affection and casting on for something that will go more quickly.  Autumn is hinting at her appearance here: the evenings and mornings and beautiful and crisp.  I’m not going to lie: I’m LOVING being stuck in the “FRIGID” northern area of New York.  (Honestly, we are still hitting the low-to-mid 80s during the day, but the evenings and mornings are gorgeous.)  Is it starting to show up where you all are, kittens?  Or are you all still trapped in the awful never-ending summer ‘most everyone has been experiencing this year?
