Hungry brain slug.

The brain slug found a host.

Radar & The Brain Slug

The host is alarmed initially, then realizes that having this thing on his head isn't really going to interfere with his number one directive: SLEEP.

The brain slug loses strength and slides off. The host is unaffected.

I had some tech bloggy problems, but I think things might be straightened out now. And by problems, I mean I had an extreme case of "maybe I should move my blog! No, maybe I should rename this one. Noooo... move it. No. I don't know."

This could be related to the fact that I've had a rather hungry brain slug attached to my head.


A few notes for when I make this again: I used a long tail cast on and skipped the initial row ones which consisted of knitting straight across. This whole thing could be quite easily modified to knit in the round, and I regretted not doing that almost immediately. I am no good at seaming!

In other news, rumor has it that Mazzmatazz's infamous forbidden Adipose pattern will be available in a Guardian supplement come Saturday. Since I do not live in the UK, I must remain hopeful that I can take a peek at the pattern some other way to determine what the bloody hell I have been doing wrong with the feet.


I am actually ambivalent about my little Adipose project. His face turned out very cute, but I'm not happy with my seaming (vile seaming!) nor the acrylic yarn I used. I have a bit of Cascade 220 in a nice off-white, so I'd like to try to do-over. However, I know that a do-over has no chance of again achieving such a face. Squish.

Here is a squid.

I knitted this for my friend Kristi. Very cute, very squishy, very much of the insanity-inducing type of project.

frogged kimono

This is the "heartbreakingly cute baby kimono" which is, I admit, pretty cute. But I think worsted weight makes the texture of this a little too thick and unwieldy. As I was re-winding the yarn, I realized that there's enough of it (this is one of those ginormo skeins) to make the vintage cardigan, and being 100% cotton, I can dye it too!

I am most certainly going to do another baby kimono, but with a DK weight and probably a mercerized cotton, which is softer.

I hope you brought your defibrilator, mofos.

Because I am Nessie, and I will KILL YOU with my CUTE.


Now bring me a piece of cake.
