some context for the title of the post
I am ALLLIIIIIIIIVEEEEEEEEE ALIIIVVVEEEEE (and also overly dramatic - also mixing genres. but you know. whatever.) There actually hasn't been much going on here at the fixation, I just haven't much felt like sewing, and then when I did, it was black on black on black and I needed to wait for a good camera with a proper flash -- but such a beast has arrived!
Look! couching! after about three years I finally got my act together and made a choir dress (all black) but I decided it was boring, and as I'd used knit, I pulled out my Alamaba Chanin sewing and design book and learned how to embellish knits. The idea is you take a piece of something (usually yarn, but in this case a rope of knit) and just sew it onto whatever you're working with, thus creating exciting 3-dness.
In the interest of honesty and full disclosure, this was not in my stash, which means by the rules I have to add three more things to my stash bust, putting me at 18 total - and I've only done five. I know. I think a new rules is I need to stop making up wacky challenges for myself and just have some normal self restraint when it comes to fabric. But we shall see.
Anyhow, HI! (also, I have actually been doing science. also, because Jonathan Coulton is awesome, here is another song) (trust me, keep listening.)
aloha and so forth. more in the future.
