Romeo and Juliet on VHS, icecream, so much knitting as Ryan and his friends recorded guitar tracks, young adult novels from the library. Glass door cabinets wrestled out of dumpsters (but that is for another post, when I sand and paint it). Ryan is really into a Jurassic park game app - I mention it because I told him I was going to tell the world that he spends hours a night, now, feeding his brontosaurus and re-arranging his park attractions to get optimal gold (since he has always given me a questionable look about my own obsession with jewel mania. Well, well. Who is the nerd, now?
I also finished my first crochet'd clothing piece - a sweater with massive sleeves and a massive hood, wide open knit, aptly named the druidess. Two pounds of yarn into this baby, and sore fingers! I am excited to get it into the shop sometime this week, I will update the usual sites when that happens, of course, and I am excited that a few wiccan shops in Sayville, NY have agreed to offer them for sale, as well, and I will update with info/directions and photos when you can purchase a piece from BlackZodiac in the flesh :) (cool!) I put everything I love into this one, the ceremonial sleeves and a hood that is giant, so giant that when you wear it down it's almost like a black cowl snuggled around your neck. Open knit, very springy and soft and massive all around. I wanted to make something that was urban and wearable and fashionable and didn't translate to a costume, but had the elements of things I enjoy wearing in costumes for my photography. And not to ound really put on about it but I think I hit it perfectly - I could both wear this with my most sleek gothic outfit into the city, or into the woods for a photo session.
(in progress and finished)
