Socks, lies, and video game.

This weekend I set out to knit a second sock, attach the binding to a quilt, and make a drawstring project bag and a new notions pouch. How many of these things did I finish? None. Not a single one. I blame the people of Pelican Town.

Saturday afternoon, I decided to check in with my character on Stardew Valley. If you are unfamiliar, it is a Harvest Moon-esque farming game. I had a very enjoyable time planting crops, mining ore, and wooing one of residents of the aforementioned Pelican Town. I don’t play video games very often, but boy when I do, I play hard. I did knit a fair bit of sock this weekend, but mostly I played.

To make up for the lack of serious making, I present you with pictures of lovely things:

One batch of kraut is done! We had it on hot dogs Friday night and it was amaaaazing.

Oh and in an exciting turn of events, I won a prize! I’ve been participating in the Suburban Stitcher Rainbowalong and therefore, dutifully utilizing the #rainbowalong2017 tag. Anyway, Dianne—the Suburban Stitcher herself—selected a couple of winners from the hashtag and I was one! 

I received the prize over the weekend and it is so rainbowy and wonderful! There’s a really cool unicorn rainbow bag and fun stitch markers from Kitchen Counter Crafter, a snowflake cupcake progress keeper from Sucre Sucre Miniatures, and a skein of beautiful Marigold Jen yarn. Many thanks to Dianne for this bounty of rainbow fun!

Well, I now have two days to finish my second pair of rainbowalong socks. Two days in which I not only have to work but work late one night. I guess that’s what I get but at least the virtual chickens are happy. Wish me luck!

    It’s too bad that you didn’t get much time to craft, however I think it is good ever once in awhile to take a break from crafting, besides Harvest Moon is very addictive. 😁❤️
