Ugh

Got my taxes done this afternoon. Ugh. After seeing how shockingly, depressingly, little I made last year (and how very little of it I'm getting back) I realized that I actually do need to get a second job instead of just idly tossing the idea around. And that maybe I should start selling my crochet like everyone tells me I should.

What an eye-opener.

Bought a tablet last night, and one of the first apps I downloaded was Angry Birds: Star Wars. I was up til almost one in the morning playing that shit! OMG take it away! I actually had to force myself not to pick it up again this morning so that I could get dressed.

I’m hoping I can use the tablet with my crocheting. Like, instead of having my laptop on and open for a pattern, I can just pull it up on the tablet instead. I also downloaded a couple of crochet books from a nice person on tumblr, and plan to upload them to the tablet.

OH! I can also pull up coupons probably and not have to worry about printing and forgetting them!

My sis is pregnant with her first baby - a girl! - so I've been working on a few baby projects for her.

The first is a little blanket for the carseat. It's small enough not to drag on the ground, but hopefully big enough to cover the little one. I ran out of one of the colors I was working with, so couldn't make it as big as I wanted, but I think it'll be okay. It's 24 inches wide and 19 inches long. The colors are a match the colors of the stroller/carseat combo she got from our cousin.

She had seen a toy carrot in the most recent Ikea catalog, and was expecting it to be a rattle. But when we got to the store it was a squeak toy, and since she has a dog, a squeak toy is not an option for the baby. She was so disappointed that I had to make her a carrot rattle. I used the pattern off the Lion Brand website, but used a smaller hook size and changed the leaves a bit. I also bought a cheap (99 cents) plush rattle and ripped it open for the rattle part. Then I replaced the rattle with a squeaker and gave it to Dixie, lol.

Next up is an elephant mobile.

I like Vanna's Choice yarns. I do. They come in nice colors, they're soft, they work up really nice. However. I HATE that they don't come in center-pull skeins. Hate hate hate.
