Health Problems and a little bit of Knitting.

7 May

First off, yes, I am aware that I misspeak the name of my blog. It happens. For some reason as soon as the camera comes on I just can’t think of the name of my blog. It’s silly.

Secondly, this is a very personal, difficult vlog for me to share with you, so please be kind. Not that I’ve ever gotten any negative comments, but today in particular we’re all about the positivity.

And so, without further ado, here is today’s vlog:

Caching and Llamas

28 Apr

And vlogs, of course!

 

Here are the promised pictures:

Llama!!

Nature ^^

Maybe it's just cause I watched Candyman the other night, but I found the juxtaposition of graffiti and nature particularly interesting today.

This is my daddy! I loves him lots ❤

More nature! ^^

Piano Times

24 Apr

Hey guys! Did you know I can play piano? Well I can! I’ve even been playing since I was two! And then a friend of mine uploaded a video of her singing and playing piano onto YouTube and I thought, hey! I can do those things! This will totally work!

WRONG.

SO. WRONG.

First off, Garage Band is confusing, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. I ended up doing all of this in Photo Booth because I know how it works, and that at least was simpler, and as far as I can tell, there was no loss in quality. But oh, my friends, the quality. The quality was not good. Especially when the notes got loud. And, y’know, notes tend to get loud.

Also, it’s really hard to play piano, look at the camera, sing the right notes, turn the pages and not forget to not play too loudly at the same time. Which is how I got from this:

happy, in-the-zone face...

To this:

throwing sheet music in the air...

And finally to this:

angry, scary face.

When all I wanted was a pretty picture of me playing piano, like this:

Only, see, by picture I really mean video. I tried, friends and neighbours. I tried so hard to get a video of me playing a whole song. But it just would. not. cooperate. even a little bit. This was the first semi-decent thing to happen:

 

But the thing is, the intro was wrong. Even though I wanted it to be right. But the rest of the video was good, so I’m still putting it up for your enjoyment/criticism. Here’s a better video of me playing the intro actually correctly (dada!):

 

So there you have it.

Actually, wait, isn’t this a knitting blog? Whoops. Um. Let’s see. I’ve been working a little bit on Frankie’s front and I’m almost at pocket placement, I’ve finish the sleeve of Snuggleupagus (have I said that already? I think I have. Oh well). I’m almost ready to start working on squares again. And I promise a real update on all things knitterly no later than Vlog Friday.

Outside Times.

20 Apr

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of posts this week; I’ve been going through a really rough time and it just didn’t lend itself well to blogging. I was going to do Vlog Day early yesterday, only yesterday was the worst of all the bad days, so that didn’t happen. But things are looking up, it’s beautiful outside, and I’m actually posting! Hooray!

Also, I noticed while rewatching this video that I keep rubbing my nose a lot. Happy allergy season, friends! The perils of doing a vlog outside.

 

By the way, I remembered my other warm weather yarn from that grab bag! I got some Classic Elite Premiere, which is 50% cotton and 50% tencel, in a fabulous chartreuse color I can’t wait to show off. I’ve also got some Sublime Organic Cotton from a previous grab bag that I’ll hopefully get to use sometime this summer. It wants to be a Lauriel, but there are a lot of other things higher up on my queue, so I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get to it. And there you have it, just in case you were wondering about the innermost details of my stash and couldn’t sleep until I remembered absolutely everything 😛

The Importance of Being Mitered

13 Apr

Sorry if I look or sound a bit sick; I’ve had a rough few days, but I didn’t want to miss Vlog Friday! And I’m fine, really. Just takin’ it easy and knittin’ up those squares and watchin’ those crime shows.

ETA: The video wasn’t working because of stupidity, but it’s up for reals now! Sorry about that, folks!

Why I’ll Never Be Productive Ever Again.

Told in vlog form!
