Cross-posting to [livejournal.com profile] crafty_tardis.

First off, I have a feeling this was long-awaited, so huge apologies. In the midst of RL getting rather complicated lately, my computer has gone through two personal crises (crisises?) and managed to dump all of my data down the digital toilet. Thank God for the likes of TinyPic and Photobucket.

Disclaimer reminder: I ask that my created letters, like the originals, not be used for any sort of profit. I'm not making any money off of them either. It's a labor of geeky, awesome, fandom love. <3

Without further ado:

Pics behind the cut )


...it appears that among other things, my computer ate the graph version of K, although it shouldn't be too tricky to make it with this picture - but I can remake the graph - as well as my L, where the only remaining copies besides the actual (as-of-yet incomplete) stitched piece are some print-outs. Thankfully, I can remake that one without too much difficulty.

I love how with some of these pictures, I clearly have the colors in mind, and then when it gets to actually making it, I'm like SCREW IT and I use a different color after all.

So this wasn't as spectacular an update as I had hoped, but I'm getting there. I've made charts for S, T, U, and W as well, in case anyone was wondering. I'm just waiting to post them in order. Suggestions are loved! I've got most of them figured out, it's just a matter of making a chart.

Hehehe...

I've officially started the hair-coloring process. Got my little sister to help me make sure every bit of my hair was covered in this nasty foam that smells like someone dumped a bottle of soy sauce on my hair but it's a lot redder.

In about 15 minutes I'm gonna go wash it out and finish the process. :D

In other news, my laptop's fan is dead and I'm amazed at how long I've managed to keep it working. Still under warranty, so I don't have to pay anything! Just have to wait three weeks for them to send me a new one. Sigh. Hopefully I can borrow my mom's Mac or something while they're gone next week, and can reinstall the cross stitch program to finish more of my secret project.

iPod battery's about to die, and need computer to recharge, so this may be the last thing I get to post in a good while. Ta!

IT'S MY FIRST NON-SCARF THAT ISN'T A POTHOLDER!

So I knitted something cool, showed it to [livejournal.com profile] narrativeliving  and had the following conversation:

Her: And gloves do well on etsy, I've seen

Me: Well, they do well year-round, I should think.
Scarves are mostly a winter thing.
unless they're fandom-related.
like Harry Potter or whatever.

Her: True, unless they're fa- YOURE IN MY MIND

Me: XDDDDD
I KNOW RIGHT
I DO THAT
PARTLY PSYCHIC, YOU KNOW

Her: I feel like I just got Inception'd
~~~~~

HERE'S THE AWESOME THING YOU GUYS.



Took me four hours to make and now I have to make another. It's just that I'm using knitting needles that could probably fit inside a pencil and they hurt. And you know that cool pattern on the glove? Yeah. That thing is a pain in the ass to do but looks so nice.

And now I'm going to bed because I'm super tired 'cause I didn't take a nap earlier 'cause I made this instead. /END
shinydinosaur: (too silly)
I've still got another hour or three working on that scarf (I had to go buy MORE yarn, again) but the candy card is done!

Because we all know a massive sugarbuzz is the best way to show someone you care.

Big version for enhanced readability.

 Omfg I am so hungry it's not even funny.

I should have started with: I went to the gym! For like, around two hours. Holy cow. I'm exhausted and my legs are sore and so are my arms and mostly my legs cause I finished with a 6 1/2 minute fast run (or however long playing 'Out Tonight' 2x is - it's my fave running song). But wow it was crazy. I probably exercised like every muscle in my body. But I feel so accomplished.

AND HUNGRY. Omg. I nommed a chicken cesar salad and am working on a big bottle of water now, and some almonds, but omg it works up an appetite. Like... this hungry.



I will now proceed to give you my favorite fandom moments involving food. Spoilers abound.

Picspam of yum! )

Other moments:
- Adric doing nothing but eating 90% of the time in 'Black Orchid'
- Adelle and her alchohol
- RENT: the Life Cafe - WINE AND BEER!

Last but not least: my Cookies of Rassilon, and my assorted DW cookies, made for a Who party. They were delicious!
shinydinosaur: (Topher: not unlike pride)
(APPROPRIATE ICON IS APPROPRIATE. OH, SO MUCH.)

Holycrap my hands are freezing I can't feel them.
I went outside for like half an hour and got ONE GOOD PICTURE.

LET ME SHOW YOU IT.
PICS )


I also have epic pics of the moon 'un-eclipsing' as the red part of it goes down the moon, as it were.

To clarify: I have this decent camera, it's not anything special, and I set it to the setting for like, shooting stars, so it keeps the shutter open for 15 seconds to get the shooting stars all in one shot, k?

Except my hands are shaking bad although it settles a bit once I can't feel/move my fingers anymore, so I go to my neighbor's wooden fence thing and prop the camera up and try to shoot although that whole set winds up cool yet blurry; it looks like if you try to quickly shoot/film a moving glowstick or something. You get the motion and there's like multiple moons.

So then I grabbed some twiggy branch things from a bush and pushed them up against the back of the fence and let my camera rest on them and three shots more -- all with me crouched down holding perfectly still, and I got that one. <33333333333333

I'm allowed to pat myself on the back now and crawl wearily into bed again, right?
PS: Not only did I not go to bed at 3:30 AM after getting this picture, I stayed up until 5AM getting shots of the moon in its various post-eclipse phases. (Which I'll post links to later if there's any interest.)

BED FOR ME KTHX.

IT'S DONE IT'S DONE IT'S DONE IT'S DONE IT'S DONE OMGOMGOMG.
20ish hours of work put into it and it's finally up for sale!

I'm incredibly pleased with myself now.
Figured I'd say something about it here. Also pimping my Etsy store, cause it's in there.

Here's the whole thing.


Here's how wide it is in full.


Now to sneak off and start work on my BF's super sekkrit awesome gift. I did take your advice, f-list, and got lighter green. It's Medium Thyme now rather than this dark forest/navy.

Next up after his scarf, when I get the money (or donated yarn) are some Harry Potter scarves.

I JUST CAUGHT A FREAKING SHINY TANGELA. SHINY. TANGELA. SHINYYYY.

I WAS TRAINING MY DRAGONAIR AT MT SILVER AND JUST LOOKED DOWN ON THE SCREEN FOR A SECOND AND WAS LIKE OMG WHAT POKEMON IS THA---- HOLY EFF IT'S A FREAKING GREEN TANGELA. WTF GREE--- HOLY CRAP IT'S A SHINY.
AND THEN I TOTALLY CAUGHT IT. HOLY CRAP THIS NEVER HAPPENS TO ME. *flailing*



Edit: For those of you who aren't Pokemon geeks like me, here's what this means.

A shiny Pokemon is a differently-colored one. They're considered really rare, in terms of obtainable, because my chances of seeing one, in any game ever, are about 1 in 8192 or 0.01%.

AAAAAHHHH.

HEY GUYS MY ETSY SHOP IS NOW OPEN.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/shinydinosaur

If the only thing you do is take a look at it, that'd make me happy.

I did a loooooot of talking and research with my other RL knitting friend yesterday and we did some working on it and now I've finally got things there! Things! :D
Gotta wait until the post office is open tomorrow before I start posting beanbags, so I can weigh them and find out pricing for shipping cause they're heavy.
Now that I've finally stopped procrastinating (THANK YOU PAST SELF FOR THAT REMINDER POST), I can get more done today. :D

In other news, all my Nancy Drew books were sold for $35 last week, bringing my total current money up to 150 $170. Still waiting on the $20 from a friend and $20 from dad for his commissioned scarf (making it $190).

Edit: AND MY DAD JUST PAID ME AND IS GONNA PIMP THE SCARF AT HIS WORK FOR ME FOR $25 EACH. FTW.
