Amigurumi Rocks for "stoning"

Amigurumi rock for throwing (safe to throw at tv, relatives, etc...)
When you've just had enough and need to throw something.

Declares "STFU" but can be thrown for any reason.
(yeah, I should have thought of these BEFORE the election.)

wool & soy, merino lettering, polyfill.
2.5-3 in wide.

larger may be coming soon, and I'm making plans for a BRICK!

Finally finished

The zig zag pattern turned out beautifully,
and I love the dagged edge on the flap.
You don't want to know how many hours went into
knitting this felted bag.
I'm really happy with it.
I might make another in a different color way for myself.

But GHU! I can't believe it took me so long to get it done...
Hopefully, someone will fall in love & adopt this one soon!

Plugging away

Just posted a couple of really nice SOY lace scarves, and
what I'm calling a "bell bottom bag" on ETSY.

Still working away on the knitting of the felted laptop bag. I didn't expect it to take so many hours to knit this particular design...part of it though is that I didn't account for how big it would have to be BEFORE the felting part. So it's taking me longer and more patience than I thought it would.

I've started the 2nd laptop bag in a different colorway, but I'm knitting this one much more simply. I think I'll keep the zigzag design as a detail on the flap on the second one, as doing the whole thing in zigzag has been part of my +s that I have to make on my sanity roll for each new row. (everything has to line up just SO.)

At least I'm not feeling the frustration yet that I was having when I knit the Dr. Who scarf. (The next Dr. Who scarf, if there ever is one, is gonna be knitted in sections and joined...)

I'm still nursing a Techno-lust for one of these:

Bills Bills bills....

Still a couple hundred away from paying off the vet...
just paid car insurance and the energy bill... got enough for food and gas for a couple weeks.

Hopefully sales on ETSY, Windycon, and Chambanacon go well too.
I'm having difficulty finding out about conventions in time to send art work to their art shows. Anyone got an Inside Track on how to get this information?

Wish me luck.

Megumi says Hi Everyone!

Megumi is feeling like herself again... and needs to go get weighed again soon. I think she's just about back up to her normal weight. She's eating well and picking on her little brother Seimei again.

Today I went to Target to pick up "feline hygiene product" and saw this cute little jacket in the $1-$2.50 section... I'm going to have to go back as they had other designs and cute holiday sweaters too.

J's computer broke down... she turned it off as we left for Tai Chi class, and when we got home it wouldn't turn back on. We figure it's either the Motherboard or the power source... Her friend Nick is coming by to look at it tomorrow evening. She's had it for about 3 years now, and we didn't get the extended warranty.
Prayers and happy thoughts for J and her computer will be appreciated.

Voted at 9:45 at the Police Academy...
Took less than 5 minutes to check in and to wait in line for a booth.

It took longer to drive there and find out where to park!
