Marking the occasion

Posted at 26 Jun 2010 10:48:30 AM

I am posting this, mostly, to mark the occasion. Also if the world collapses in on itself you will know the cause and who to blame.

Last night while at Michaels, "quickly - just to get something framed and then get out*", I did it.


I bought a crochet book. (No!) (Yes!!)

In my defense it's amigurimi, not afghans, and it had cute little Mario mushrooms on it. How am I supposed to resist the opportunity to make Mario mushrooms?! (They may also restore 243 health over 18 seconds when eaten... stay tuned.)

You may have noticed that the book cover also promises a pattern for a Fruit Fucker, although I am sure that the writers did not intend their alien-robot thing to be interpreted in such a manner. Or maybe they did, and they're just trying to give children an early and well-rounded introduction to gaming culture? Regardless, I fully intend to make a pair and send them to Gabe and Tycho.

In other Michaels-related news, I have finally located a large-sized wicker basket with a lid** -- O frabjous day! -- and it now resides under the end table next the couch. Said end table no longer looks like a wool factory threw up on it, and my living room is consequently neater. I do so enjoy encapsulation!

Also, I have Christmas cards. With luck and a break in the space-time continuum, they will actually be sent out prior to Christmas.

* Letting me go into a craft store unescorted is the first sign of trouble.

** You would be surprised at how rare these are. I would have thought that more of the crafting community had cats, but surely their sales figures know best.
