yarn, kitty

April, day 27

 

Today I have been pulling up dandelions from the garden and have made sweet potato fries. And finally, late at night, I finished knitting the Cap Sleeve Lattice Top. Doing the kitchener stitch at the end took about an hour and 20 minutes (I ran a stopwatch and paused it while I wasn't working). I still need to sew in all the ends, but it's done at last.
I already know what I want to knit next, but the pattern is a bit confusing to me, so I'm not sure how it's going to work out. I think I'll do a pair of quick socks in between as a palate cleanser.

My "artificial popularity" (LJ rankings) is virtually soaring, having gone up by more than 300 five days in a row now. Up almost 1900 places since the start of the month. Amazing what you can get by just shouting into the void; I don't think more than four people are actually reading this.

I don't talk with people as much as I used to and I miss that. There's still the occasional conversation to be had in #asr, but.. a large portion of my social interaction happens on Twitter and Tumblr, and those are just not good platforms for conversations.

Got my first tick bite of the season today. I had been weeding the garden for a while, did a tick check as I came back inside, and saw a tiny tick that had already attached itself. It came away easily and I can't even locate the mark of where I removed it from now. Probably hadn't been there for more than a couple of minutes. Frequent tick checks are important around here.
