This blog is mostly going to be my little place to talk about the novel I am writing. Which is why I stole a quote from one of my favorite tv shows, as this novel I am writing, I plan to finish, and at times.. it feels like an impossible thing. Also this is to journal my move to the UK, and starting my own business as an Indie Yarn Dyer

Wicked Verdigris

So, yesterday was spent just put-putting around the house.

I got up. Took a shower. Watched the second episode of Ashes To Ashes. Which, I shouldn’t be watching since I haven’t seen season 2 of Life on Mars. But, screw it, if I don’t watch A2A now, I won’t get to until after I move to the UK. And comcast has A2A on demand for free. Woohoo.

After that I hopped in my car, and drove to Whole Foods. I knew I needed to buy cereal, and I really didn’t want to go to Walmart. So, I splurged at Whole Foods.
Got a few things, including a bag of Jade Pearl rice.

It’s rice… that is infused with Bamboo. Ooooh Ahhhhhh. And it’s also short grain, which I like. I can’t wait to try it.

Then, I came home.. changed back in to my jammies, and just chilled watching telly and knitting.
And I have mastered the art of knitting and typing. Okay, not so much mastered, but I’m getting the hang of it.

I was working on a particularly boring section of knitting, so after each row I would type something.

84 rows of 11 stitches of Knit.

Not even Knit/Purl. Just straight Knit on both sides all rows for 84 rows. BORING!!!!!!

But, it was a necessary part of the vest.

I am officially done with section A. woohoo!
Now on to section B, which is… sadly exactly the same as section A.
I spent at least 3 hours untangling my skein of yarn. This cotton yarn I’m using, every time I go to wind it into a ball, it catches on it’s self and then tangles in an ungodly way. Thank goodness I’ll need only to go through that process on one more skein.

I did cast on Section B last night. I’ll most likely finish all of B tomorrow. Who knows, it depends on how much I knit tonight.

I have decided to call the vest “Wicked Verdigris” as it is quite a green color. And that just seemd to fit for now. Don’t know if I’ll change it or not..

I watched Kung Fu Panda yesterday, which was cute.
I watched a horribly dubbed Jackie Chan movie, which.. sucked because Jackie didn’t even do the american dub for himself, so it was really… weird.

Oh, Saturday I watched one of the most horrible Vampire movies. The Vampire Kiss or whatever it’s called. The one with Nicolas Cage.
I think I could have liked the movie if it wasn’t for Nicolas Cage. He had this weird accent, like he was trying to just be an ass, but it was coming out pompish, feminine and just… creepy. If I had been in the movie iwth him, I wouldn’t have been able to get through a scene without laughing at how ridiculous he was speaking. it was pointless, it did not add anything to the character.

Watched most all of BallyKissAngel season 6, and I gotta say.. I could really care less about this season. Most of the people I like are gone, and the people I like that are still left don’t have that much of story in this season. Boooo.

I have to admit I’m very glad that on Ravelry I don’t participate in any of the “value / belief” oriented groups, as there is a huge bruhahha going on right now to the point where legal action is being taken and people are getting banned in the crossfire.

It’s about Knitting people. Everything else is besides the point. Get over it.

And on the writing note..
Got my chapters back from James, which I’m very happy about as there was nothing that was added or needed to be subtracted really. That means I’m on the right track, and that makes me happy. Woohoo!

Okay, well I guess I’ve slacked off enough. Back to work I go.

    I like the name. I like the colour too, but then it’s not mine to wear. Black beans, hmmmm?
