Slacking...

If you people could see the complete disaster my house was at the moment, you'd realize what a total slacker I was and be too disgusted to have anything to do with me...good thing I control the camera, hah?

Oh--here's a cupcake...
It was inspired by this book, HERE except I crocheted it (because I like crochet for fiddly sculping work, sue me...) made it bigger, and instead of stuffing it, added a button pocket and put bags of M&M's and Skittles inside...I can't let anything that looks that sweet not taste that sweet.

My next blog is going to be fun...I've been wanting to write a defense of hausfrau porn (wait, wait, I'll explain with the next entry) for a long time, but today, I'm going to wallow in Arturo and Grace (I'm very pleased with this chapter btw--thanks to everybody who wanted to hear more from our sexy older people...well, Arturo IS 3000 years old...) and I'm going to explore my next project conundrum.

My B(eloved) S(pouse)has, Goddess bless him with many a Swedish massage, allowed me to accumulate a truly decadent stash, and much of this is truly good sh--! So now I am torn in many a place for my next project...I've narrowed it down to a project for my Ladybug, shown here, doing what adorable babies do best...(nothing. Adorable babies suck on their fists and look adorable--it's the world's best job, and these little jokers never let it last long enough...)

So anyway, my choices are the cover sweater from this book here... ...I even have (get this...you'll plotz because this never happens ever) THE EXACT YARN CALLED FOR IN THE PATTERN!!! And it will be beautiful, because the pattern is actually so simple, even I can follow it...I mean, that's a tempter, isn't it? But my other choice is a dress I've been planning for a month using this yarn in the picture which is three times as beautiful in real life when you can touch it... If anyone has a leaning either way, let me know...of course, I may treat your opinion just as I treat my BS' opinion--as a reason to go completely the other direction, but still, it helped me make up my mind, so that's okay...

Oh, yes...I'm almost done with these Offline socks... the colors are so pretty they give me a reason to knit...and btw? Can anybody tell that I've learned pictures and linking and I'm so proud of myself I can't hardly fit in the same hair? And if you'd seen my hair, you'd know that's something big...

So tune in tomorrow (or the next day, either or) when I follow up on my teaser about hausfrau porn...
trust me, it'll save your marriage. Or your romance book collection. Or it'll just kill your spare time...my hair still fits after all and I'm pretty sure this blog won't change the world... CIAOU!

Horay for a well slung slack day!! The ladybug: utterly precious! I can hardly wait for the hausfrau porn! And as for the cupcake stuffed with Skittles, Omigawd I have totally got to dew that! You creative genius!!

I vote for the cozy jacket because it looks as if it will go so fast that you will then be doing the dress in no time. So you get both, right?
