— hmm bye!
can you believe i’ve been on tumblr for four years? twitter for three? i can’t. but i think it’s time for other pastures.
i’ll still be running pixelian so don’t worri
i’m not saying that i’m closing up shop and disappearing forever. or that i’ll deactivate or even, gasp unlock. but i can’t say that tumblr or twitter interests me as it used to. i’m not getting enough out of it..
if we are already connected, then you’ll know where to find me. if we aren’t connected and you want to find me then maybe we can work something out. :)
— 9 arts and crafts
when i was in sixth grade i learned how to crochet from my grandma/mom. i’ve always like doing things with my hands, and crochet gave me something to busy myself with.
i learned how to crochet in a very unconventional way. i learned by making granny squares. they were kind of my grandma’s specialty. of course, as i found out later that she was quite talented as a knitter too, but crochet was easier for her to do after a while.
my first project was this super lumpy granny square. i was practicing with scrap yarn and made the mistake of combining different weights of yarn together. it was horribly lopsided and ugly, but i was proud of myself. i made something!
nowadays i still knit and crochet. but much less as a whole and more selective of who i make things for. because time has taught me that the worst thing about handmade gifts is making something and never seeing it again. it happens, but it still sucks.
i’m currently juggling a few projects. the most ambitious is this crocheted shawl thing that i’ve been working on and off for a year. just need to finish up the edging and block it!
i draped it on my roommate because he was in the way
