My Little Knitty: Cables Are Magic

Hello, crafty and sundry! While I continue to slack on my knitting because of Pokémon (more on that in a minute), I am enjoying the ever-loving crap out of the little bit that I am currently working on. It’s a hat for my youngest, a pattern specifically picked out because I wanted to play with …

Oooh, Shiny — Shiny Pokémon!

Hello, crafty and sundry! Yes, my Pokémon addiction continues to run amok. We even walked into town over the weekend so that I could pick up some codes for Shiny Charizards and Darkrais from our local Game store. I also found Black and Black 2 for a price comparable to what I would have paid …

Can’t Knit, Too Many Pokémon

Hello, Crafty and Sundry! One thing that is a constant source of amusement to me is the misconception that Pokémon is a game for children only. Yes, it’s cartoonish and cute, and nobody actually dies… but the first game came out in the late 1990s. Which means some of us have been playing the franchise …

Impromptu Card-Making for the Win!

Hello, crafty and sundry! Well, I have been keeping rather busy lately. First, we had visitors from abroad; I’d not seen my sister and her husband in years, so it was great to have them around. Of course, I was doing my bit to spread the knit-love too, naturally. My sister had learned before me …

Around in a Circular… Double Pointed… Thing

Hello, crafty and sundry! I have to say, I’ve been having way too much fun lately. Of course, a part of that has been knitting up a storm. I finished my scarf in that really fun pattern, and suffices to say, I am well pleased with it. Of course, watch the winter continue to stay …

All the Things!

Hello, crafty and sundry! My, I have been quiet over this holiday season, hee hee. I’ve been busy, let’s be fair. Besides spending time with my lovely family, I’ve been knitting up a storm, and gaming like mad. You know, what I do with all my free time any ways, but yanno, with having even …

Knitting Up the Loose Ends

Hello, crafty and sundry! My, it’s been busy around here lately, and I’ve apparently fallen off the blogging bandwagon. It, in part, started because I was having computer troubles. My desktop’s GPU (graphics processing unit, or graphics card) was overheating for some reason, and I’ve spent some time troubleshooting it. That included taking things apart …

A Wild Scarf Appeared!

Hello, crafty and sundry! Now me, I couldn’t resist a Pokémon reference, hee hee. While I don’t have Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire yet, they’ll eventually make their way into my hot little hands. Because yanno, I’ve been addicted to the franchise for the entire almost 20 year span, so… gotta catch ’em all! Now, …
