Socks, lies, and video game.

This weekend I set out to knit a second sock, attach the binding to a quilt, and make a drawstring project bag and a new notions pouch. How many of these things did I finish? None. Not a single one. I blame the people of Pelican Town.

Saturday afternoon, I decided to check in with my character on Stardew Valley. If you are unfamiliar, it is a Harvest Moon-esque farming game. I had a very enjoyable time planting crops, mining ore, and wooing one of residents of the aforementioned Pelican Town. I don’t play video games very often, but boy when I do, I play hard. I did knit a fair bit of sock this weekend, but mostly I played.

To make up for the lack of serious making, I present you with pictures of lovely things:


So close and yet so far. Tempting Ewe Yarns, Rainbow Brite, Countess Ablaze in Orange Fizz


Hand knit socks and Cosi kitty paws.


One batch of kraut is done! We had it on hot dogs Friday night and it was amaaaazing.

Oh and in an exciting turn of events, I won a prize! I’ve been participating in the Suburban Stitcher Rainbowalong and therefore, dutifully utilizing the #rainbowalong2017 tag. Anyway, Dianne—the Suburban Stitcher herself—selected a couple of winners from the hashtag and I was one! 

I received the prize over the weekend and it is so rainbowy and wonderful! There’s a really cool unicorn rainbow bag and fun stitch markers from Kitchen Counter Crafter, a snowflake cupcake progress keeper from Sucre Sucre Miniatures, and a skein of beautiful Marigold Jen yarn. Many thanks to Dianne for this bounty of rainbow fun!

Well, I now have two days to finish my second pair of rainbowalong socks. Two days in which I not only have to work but work late one night. I guess that’s what I get but at least the virtual chickens are happy. Wish me luck!

    It’s too bad that you didn’t get much time to craft, however I think it is good ever once in awhile to take a break from crafting, besides Harvest Moon is very addictive. 😁❤️
