Where did those lights come from?

Almost 20 rows completed on page 3 of this. This is one of those pieces that your so on top of, it takes a photo to realize something appeared.


So I went to another Yankee game yesterday, didn't get burnt this time, but I'm still slightly red from Memorial Day.

By the way, the two guys on the left are 5'11" and 6'2". Aaron Judge (#99) is a very large human being who will make me feel tiny if I ever meet him. (I'm 5'10" for reference)

And here's Clyde looking cute. He somehow found a hole in the pillows to have his own little fort.


Trouble with wearable items

Image
So my fit issues with crochet items I want to wear continues. Initially went with a larger size due to pattern 'bust size'. My gauge was a little larger than required, but figured it would give me a bit more room to possibly wear a bra under it. Nope. turned out way too big. Kept hook and went down a size. The band fits better but now I'm worried about coverage. I know there's a border, but still worried.



So, taking a break while I figure out if I keep going or modify the top. So back to Alternative Reality.


The prince appears

I have finished page 1 as well.

 Some more stash arrived.


And here's Clyde lying in front of "his" closet.


Onto crochet!

More colors!

Image
I have color other than gray and yellow! I don't think I'd ever be happy to stitch green. Oddly, I think Insanity it next up in my rotation.


Here's some stash I got, still more on it's way, the holiday delayed some packages.



And I went to the Yankee game on Memorial Day. They lost, but I don't think this photo is so bad. I did get a tad burnt though.


Halfway through page 1

Making progress on this piece.


And Clyde is completely healed from Christmas. First time he's been able to get up here since hurting himself.


Also bought more stuff on Ebay. Pics coming next week of stash.

DWTS Season 26: Week 4 finale

Finale. Two dances including freestyle. This went quick.

Tonya. I felt she was a bit loose and off balance in her turns. Very simple choreography. Way too high.

Josh. Not his best dance. He went through too many steps flat footed and the knees bent looked like he should've been doing tango. Way too high.

Adam. Best dance of the round. Cute, entertaining, and acrobatic. I agree with the scores.

Freestyle round!

Tonya. The leaps were a bit weak at the beginning, but credit for being flipped like that. Too high especially given what I think is coming up.

Josh. Powerful. Better than the first dance. A little high but i'll give him the scores.

Adam. Beginning was a little slow but the whole dance was definitely Adam. I'm really surprised they didn't do 10's but I felt it would've gone over better on SYTYCD.

Best part of the final dance number was the pro part at the beginning.

The winner is Adam. I agree with these results.

Lots of gray

Image
I'm happy when I get to do some light yellow, but mostly stone gray. At least I have a lamp.


Also bought a few things, including 5 ornaments not pictured.


I still haven't been able to get into a posting rhythm...
