Not exactly a great work of art, this picture, but.
Over on the dutch_crafters group on Ravelry somebody asked for pictures of our hands ‘in action’. I took this one by balancing my camera on my knee, setting the timer, and hoping for the best.
I’m working an intarsia pattern (a skull, for those interested). I keep one strand of yarn in my right hand, English style, and let go of the right needle to ‘throw’ the strand around to knit a stitch (my index finger on the left hand holds the needle in place when I let go). I keep the other strand of yarn in my left hand, continental style, the yarn going over my index finger, under my middle and ring finger, and over my pinky - I do not need to let go to knit the stitch. This way I can knit intarsia without the strands getting tangled, and by performing a neat little trick with both strands at once I do not end up with floats in the back.
Also it looks pretty fucking crafty, doing that wizard-y magic-y thing with the two strands of yarn at the same time.

Slutwalk Amsterdam, June 4th 2011
In short, the Walk was all sorts of amazing if there’s another one in 2012 I am SO there. Keep on fighting the good fight, all you beautiful sluts of the world!

15 pounds of cat vs. 8 ounces of kitten.
Nova is on light food because he needs to lose at least 2 pounds this year. Morris is on supah!special! diet food because she might be allergic to protein (she’s had some health issues the past week… not out of the woods yet but I’m starting to see the first signs of improvement so I’m hopeful). In short, their food actually costs more than mine does. As long as they’re both healthy, I seriously don’t give a fuck!
I also feel like the luckiest, happiest girl in the world to see them getting along so well ♥

To my darling captivated audience, I present…Morris Rosa
She’s six weeks old now, so has a few more weeks of growing strong left to do. In May I will be able to take her home with me ♥ She’s adventurous and curious and was verrrry interested in my camera!
