I've been rolling along on my mitered squares blanket, which surprises me because when I started it, I thought I would lose my mojo for it pretty quickly(each square takes about AN HOUR), but it's looking like I might actually finish the thing! I'm falling more and more in love with it every day. The mini skeins are so beautiful, and it's fun to knit with all those yummy colors. The joins are deliciously neat and tidy where the garter rows come together at the seams, even on the reverse. Boy was I jealous of those advent calendar reveals from people's Vlogmas videos! I started off using only my own sock yarn leftovers, but I've since found the joy of mini skein shopping. Weeee. I'm going to quilt it when I'm done, and put it in my knitting corner. And hopefully my cat won't chew holes in it.
That girl near the barn is Cloud, and she's one of my characters in Stardew Valley. It's a game I've been playing for over a year now, and I must really love it, because when you log in it lets you know how many hours you've played, and my number is high enough that I'm embarrassed to tell you. It's found on Steam, and it's just too cute. You can decorate your farmhouse, grow crops, raise animals, collect things like gems or honey or wine, make friends with the villagers, go fishing at the beach, kill monsters in the mines, or hang out and play blackjack at the desert casino. All the things!
