It's probably not very surprising that I didn't get much progress last week. It was my last week at work before my vacation, and that took some energy. I was also a bit preoccupied with real life in the evenings, plus the huge distraction that is my new Zelda game. What can I say? I <3 it.

I did get like one Lakewood update or maybe two re-posted last week, so that's now done up until the first part of week 3 I think. I did play a little bit too, like for one date or so. I did plan to play a bit last night, but my computer wouldn't agree on that. After a couple of software crashes, I found out it was kinda late already and gave up. Hopefully that was just a random occurrence and not something more serious.

So yeah, I've got three weeks off starting this week, and I don't have any particular plans, other than relaxing and doing something fun. I predict that it'll contain a lot of Zelda, but I'll try to get some simming stuff done too. As a matter of fact, I'm currently waiting for my game to boot up so I can play some Lakewood. Fingers crossed for some nice progress!

I've been pretty distracted through last week. That may or may not have something to do with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which I may or may not have just got for myself... *ahem* That one is a HUGE distraction from simming, as it's just so fun and exciting to play. The best immersion I've experienced in years. Great for having fun, not so great for my other hobbies, seeing that I still have work and all.

I did get a little bit of progress. I re-posted a couple more Lakewood updates to fix the pictures, and played Lakewood a little bit. We're currently at Saturday morning with the Curiouses, so little by little...

I've got yet this week of works, and then I'll be off for three weeks. I'd predict great simming progress except for this other distraction. Well, one day and one week at a time. I'll try to get a little something done this week.

Knit blanket

This is a blanket I knit years ago for Acorn. Then it developed a hole where several seams along blocks came undone, and it's been in my craft closet waiting to be fixed ever since. Last night, I fixed it. I hope this is a nice surprise when he gets home Thursday!

It was originally meant to fit the twin bed he had then, but I based the measurements on the first block I made, forgetting how much handknit cotton grows. This is a double bed, and it could easily fit a queen. It weighs 13-15 lbs, as best I can tell from my bathroom scale.

Knitting details: mitred blocks, triple-stranded dishcloth cotton. Intended to be a heavy blanket to achieve a "weighted blanket" effect, which it does. Total of 80 blocks.


Meme: What color is your rainbow?

Your rainbow is shaded violet.


What is says about you: You are a creative person. You appreciate beauty and craftsmanship. You are patient and will keep trying to understand something until you've mastered it.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.

All pretty true for me, I think.
