“Out of Step” bag

October 28, 2007 at 1:44 am (bag, minor threat)

We got a new computer that has already given us more problems than we bargained for. However, at least now I can show you my favorite bag as of late.

(My boyfriend was taking a million shots of this which got really embarrassing. Check out the Alec MacKaye doll hanging out next to my head!)

I might suggest that if any of you make this once I put out the pattern in the zine, maybe you don’t want to make it white. It got real dirty real fast and was a serious coffee spill magnet.

Also, I should really learn to buy more yarn than I think is appropriate, because I always run out. I’m in the middle of at least three wearables that I can think of that are on hold because I ran out of yarn. Oh well, the latest one I’m entering in a craftster.org challenge, so it’ll be impressive.

Sneak peak…

I’m in the bottom right corner with the knitted hat (by yours truly) and black hoodie. Check the bag, you’ll get better pictures of it soon, though I’m sure many of you can tell what it is.

Just to check in — who’s actually reading these updates lately? No comments since the vibrator cozy. Hmmm…

Robbed

October 13, 2007 at 4:42 pm (text-only)

Hey guys, I have some bad news.

Yesterday someone kicked in the door to our apartment and jacked our laptop. Luckily, this was the only thing stolen, but that does mean updates are going to slow down a bit. Hopefully we’ll be able to afford a new one soon.

Here’s some humor about the situation: First of all, I left for school at around 11, Jeremy and Adam left the apartment not long after that, I got a call at 2 saying we got robbed. Which means this person broke into our apartment midday (who does that?) Not only that, but there was 15 bucks and a bag of weed (not mine) next to the laptop, and they didn’t even grab those two things. We also have 4 guitars hanging up on our walls, all of them are fine. Cameras are untouched, the guy didn’t even take the attachments to the laptop OR the charger. Not to mention, that laptop is worthless. It has stickers all over it, the only web browser that works is a really shitty one that you have to figure out. No one’s really that upset about the laptop, it’s just scary that someone broke into our apartment.

I’ll update when I can, I’m still diligently working.

I don’t wanna hear anymore about money…

(… but I need it anyway.)

¬†Okay, so I haven’t gotten a job since I moved to Brooklyn and college is eating up my bank account. I have tons of leftover yarn from the projects I’ve posted here. What I’m getting at is, I can easily make duplicates of the things I’ve posted here. If anyone is interested in perhaps buying anything, leave a comment with what it is (this doesn’t mean you’re obligated to buy anything — I just want to get an idea of which projects will sell better than others so I know about how many of each to make.) I’ll post an entry later with what’s available and new projects (including some wearables… though I probably won’t make duplicates of those. Well, at least not all of them.)

Everything will be considerably cheap, I promise.

Oh, I have something to post soon, I just have to wait for it to come out of the wash (I spilled coffee on it,) and I made a new cover for the zine (I ditched the one I posted before.)

Also, if anyone has any new ideas for projects, drop a line. I have a few that are in the works, but I could always use new ideas.
