It is gray, and cold, and I haven’t had enough work for months, and I lost the cat’s brush somewhere which is great because she’s incredibly fluffy and she’s shedding hard…
But I have the greatest soon-to-be-spouse in the entire universe, I have cookies, and I got two really, really sweet encouraging letters through tumblr this year. One was from a writer I really respect and hope to meet someday, and today’s was from someone I occasionally reblog and had no idea I apparently inspired way back in the day. Pretty much nothing is better than learning that you inspired someone to make their own art.
Also, I’m going to see my family soon. Birth-family and friend-family. I hope they approve of Graham. I hope he approves of them.
Knit Inspiration: Color Block Fisherman’s Pullover. A classic pullover in a soft, cotton-knit weave featuring a color block print. Perfect worn alone all year long or layered for cooler months. 100% Cotton construction.
this is kinda giving me ideas, which is weird, because it’s super simple and i don’t like the colors. but still.
Yeah, but imagine it in black, brown, and golden brown. Kinda sings then, doesn’t it? Or a couple deep bloody reds and a flaming orange-red for the chest. I’d totally wear one in various grays, or a few different tones of cream (but I’d want it to fit my actual shoulders, not hang off them.) Make it extra-long and I could wear it with my fleecy tights.
Also, when you visit, I found a place that does Vietnamese eggrolls as good as the ones we used to get in St. Paul. I think I like them better, even - not as much Chinese five-spice.
