Well it's December again. Wait! What? December? 2008? How in the hell did THAT happen???
Sorry guys. Ive been a bit busy living life.
Well, Ive got some nifty things on the needles!
-Sock two of my first EVER sock pattern!
-Moms Second Birches sock (Rav Link)
-My first Hemlock Ring for Caitlin for her parents!
-A simple garter stitch scarf for me
-3 different squares for my Dolce afghan
And with my current broken knuckle, I'm finding it a little odd to knit. I'm working on stuff slowly, building back into it, because it really hurts. This is my first knit-inhibiting injury.
Before that, I was just busy. Concerts, work at the yarn company, roommates, friends, designing, graphicing, getting inked, and a whole lot more. More then what I could fill the post with. BUT! I have new pictures of my ink!
Left wrist= Love
Right wrist= Hope
Left foot= Indie Stars
So. the wrist tattoos are white ink, done by Mark at Deep Roots at the Seattle Tattoo Convention in July of 2008. I would definitely recommend his work, but trying to get an appointment there is like pulling teeth occasionally. They turned out so well and I absolutely love them. They are almost all the way healed and almost flat. Minimal pain, no bruising. I went to Warped the next day and never had a problem with them.
My foot on the other hand. Ow. I got it done for my 18th at Electric Crayons in Port Orchard. Anne was the one who did my ankle, my roommates back, my moms calf, and my friends belly. My only real bitch is that she takes FOREVER, neglects her customers and she drags the needle through your skin. For me, one of her other artists did my foot and holy goddess I think I put marks in her chair with my nails. I cried, screamed, swore, yelled, all sorts of lovely things, including needing my roommate to hold me down. It hurt. A lot. But, they mean so much to me. I didnt take the ink worth a damn, so they have to be touched up, which Mark said he would do if I let him do more white work on me- which Im planning right now.
There has also been some writing and designing for bands and stuff. More about that next post. For now, I'm just damn glad to be back.
