Talon-less And Corgis

That’s right, my third talon has taken a trip off my hand and off to better things. At least I think. It didn’t leave a number where I could reach it, nor a forwarding address where I could send it’s mail. I have no idea where to send the rest of it’s stuff, as it didn’t tell me where it was going. Eventually another one will come along and I will have a new talon (or a few) in my life. Until then, texting will be easier, picking food from my teeth with require a different instrument, and I’ll have nothing to scratch and itch with. Big sigh.

My new project is coming along nicely. I’ve got row A done and together. Row B is crocheted, but I have yet to join the squares. I’ll probably do that later. I forgot to take inventory of my yarn in the colors that I needed before I started, so some of my colors are a bit off. I thought about tackling my pikachu blanket again, something I haven’t thought of in years.

In better news, a litter of Corgi puppies as brought into the world a few days ago by Kalmont Kennels. They posted pictures on their facebook page earlier today and I couldn’t help but squeal in excitement. The have two boys and five little girls (I think). Corgis are some of the greatest dogs on the planet and I can’t wait to have my own. A cute little herd of my own. 🙂

Today I found out how focused Bryant gets when he watches Anime. I’ve loved Anime most of my life, Sailor Moon being my first show. I saw my first episode when I was home sick while my dad’s sister and her family were staying with us when we lived in Corvallis, MT. That was so long ago, but I’ll never forget how fascinated I was with the show and how I’ll always love it. My love for it has evolved to include many different genres, but that one will always be my first. Back to Bryant though. I have never seen someone so engrossed in a show. I don’t think he blinks. He catching up on Bleach right now (a show I have had a hard time getting into, based solely on the fact that there is way too much filler), a manga I had read for a while until I moved in with my mother in high school. I don’t like all the same shows he does (i.e. Vampire Bund), but I’m glad that him and I have something else in common. We just have to find a show we both want to watch.

I’m trying to get out of the habit of posting late at night. It’s a difficult thing sometimes because (like last night) I don’t always have a lot to write about. Especially if I haven’t done anything yet. I try to have an adventure everyday, and boy does it were one out. On to more adventures.

If you are interested in adopting a Corgi puppy, Kalmont Kennels are accepting deposits and applications right now. Here is a link to their facebook page: Kalmont Kennels

New Project and A Shout Out

So I’ve started on a new project. Crochet that is. I’m working on converting pixel art into granny square blankets. Minecraft has been a huge help in the distinguishing of what pixel is what color. I’ve also decided to do a solid granny square instead of a open granny square. I have irishlace.net to thank for the help on figuring it out. Her website is subtly  referencing a lot of things that I love, but I will let you find those out for yourself. I’ll post a picture of the blanket when I am done. Lots of squares to make, but I’m trying to make the blanket row by row, instead of making all the squares and assuming that I have enough of them. I’ve done a whole spreadsheet on how many of each color I need in each row and I thought it looked really awesome. And it does, But I’m not going to share it until I’m sure I did it right.

I don’t have a whole lot to say tonight, I haven’t gone on a adventure today, so I don’t have a whole lot to talk about.

A shout-out goes to irishlace.net for having wonderful instructions that I could follow for the solid granny square that I’m using in my current project.
