Since Knitterbunny asked for more sock pictures, I’m happy to oblige.
Note kitty rump in the background.
And a couple of closeups for detail:
This is kind of my pattern, but kind of not. I saw these socks on Ravelry, with the pattern being for sale. I kept meaning to buy it, but I didn’t. I started these socks during our trip, and didn’t want to download the pattern then. So I just plotted it out on my own. Then I had a crisis of conscious. I can’t truthfully add these socks to that project, because I didn’t buy the pattern. But even if I bought the pattern (in homage to the designer – if it wasn’t for whomever he or she may be, I never would have made these), I wouldn’t feel right about adding the socks then, because clearly I didn’t make them from the pattern (looking at it again, it’s not an exact match). Argh. I don’t plan to offer the pattern, of course, so there’s not that concern, but I still feel like I’m on the wrong side of Karma. Shoot.
Okay, moving on from one crisis of conscious to another, I added more roving to the ever-growing stash.

The one on the left actually is the ‘surprise’ color I ordered. It was completely random what color you might receive, and purple came to me. Isn’t that a happy story? I think so.
I’ve been working on getting the kilo whittled down (you remember correctly Knitterbunny, it was indeed the Great Bundle o’ Psychedelic Roving of 2007), so I can start on all of these lovelies I’ve been collecting. I’ve joined the Tour de Fleece for this year, and hope to be done with the Parrots by that time, so I can start on all new stuff.
Other projects have included beginning to learn Flash. As in, very tiny baby steps. I made a purple ball bounce on a lavender screen. You’re shocked, I know. Next, I will be adding Photoshop into the mix, and who knows what other magical multimedia marvels.
The long abandoned html class I *cough*signedupforthreeyearsago*cough* is getting a good working over. I hope to be done with it, or very close, by the end of this month. It’s a repeat of most of the things I learned in my hypermedia course, but there’s some new stuff, too. Then, I’ll be signing up for the advanced class, and actually finishing this year. Yay me!
What else has been going on? Napping.
Lots of sleeping.
And some wide-awakes.
Yes, I know it's probably too dark, but he's cute and I didn't want to blind him
Yes, that is a sleeping cat in the background.
And you are now mostly caught up on our whirlwind existence.
