I've been doing a whole lot of a whole lot lately, and as much as it might feel like I'm a chicken running around with its head cut off... well, I make a pretty good headless chicken. That doesn't exactly make sense - what I mean to say is I'm my best at everything, and I'm most excited about everything when I'm crazily busy. Among other things there's been cooking, of course, because I have to keep eating and all. That pizza pictured above is a breakfast pizza, which is a brilliant idea I read about on Smitten Kitchen. You can also click through to my photo on flickr to see another shot of my pizza with the herby-oniony toppings.
In crafting news I've been working on a new design that is almost, ALMOST done. And no, despite the picture above it does not involve tweedy mitered squares. There will be orange involved, though, and I can't wait to show you all what it is. In the meantime I've got about 9,000 other ideas and projects kicking around the apartment, and it's killing me to not cast on for them all Right! Now!! The preview for the new issue of Crochet Today! went up today and there are some super cute projects in there. And I must be a total masochist because I can't wait to start hooking up this necklace with some size 10 crochet thread. Just to put things in perspective, this is what size 10 thread looks like:
It looks like thread. BECAUSE IT IS. Surely I will go blind, but at least I'll have a completely amazing necklace. Right? RIGHT?! I originally thought I'd use this thread for some potholders (to swap) but I was clearly delusional when I had that idea. I did manage to make one potholder (not with the thread, obvs), however, and then sent it away to live with a friend.
And amidst all this I'm walking all over creation taking pictures, many on film with my two toys, a Canon AE-1 -
(sniff, good bye, winter) and a holga (hello, summer) -
And just as a teaser before I check out for an afternoon at the library, I've got that forthcoming design to tell you about (as soon as I, you know, finish it...) and a really great meal to write up -
