Had band practice so I wore something comfortable. It was also a little cold so I bundled up.
Cut up a purple Superman shirt , wore a leopard vest over it and put on a pair of really old harem pants. I like to be comfortable during practices.
Wearing a hat I made myself. I got sick of crocheting so I took up knitting for a while. I just learned how to make cables, so:
Dooda, dooda, day.
P.S. I still haven’t gotten a copy of this month’s Pulp, rats. We’re featured in the Homegrown section of the January issue!
P.P.S. Our band’s studio has a new cat. His name is Bacon, and he’s really fat.
Got a new desk because my old one was just getting overwhelmed with the amount of STUFF I do, lol. Fortunately for me my mom came to the rescue with this awesome narra bookshelf/study table that she bought when we were kids. It’s been sitting in my little brother’s room for a while, housing his comics, but he’s outgrown it and I told my mom I wanted it back!
I actually cleaned it up (above photo)
but for a while it was really just as messy as my old one, lol:
I love that it has so many compartments. My guitar is beside it, while all my cameras and lenses have their own shelf. I also put all my crochet and sewing stuff in the cabinet, which has glass so nothing sharp can fall out. The other shelves have comics I haven’t read yet, plus some mannequin heads holding my current crochet WIPs. More drawers/compartments underneath hold paper and other office supplies.
It feels great to get organized without having to use plastic bins all the time!
What’s your workstation like? :D
I haven’t posted about my crocheting in what seems like forever, but trust me, I haven’t stopped! My shop is going nuts with orders!
My shop is CLOSED until the 3rd week of January, so I’m taking this opportunity to get a breather and post about the new hat designs I’ve come up with up to this point.

If you follow my blog, you’ve probably seen my crochet posts and know that I have a Hat Shop!
I got a question a couple of weeks ago about doing another giveaway, and the answer is, yes!
I’m doing this because my hat shop has been steadily gaining subscribers, so I decided that once I reached 600 I’d do one, another when I reached 800, another when I reached 1000, and so on. It’s my way of saying thanks to the peeps that turned my hobby into a full-fledged enterprise! It really makes me happy.

The Boy and I both love Jake the Dog, and after months of making hats for other people I finally got the chance to crochet something all for myself. I just made up the pattern as i went along, and I think my Amigurumi Jake the Dog turned out pretty sweet. Slamacow!
