In which the lazy superhero(ine) admits to being lazy and heroic (psst, need more chocolate, powers... failing...)

Here comes a long overdue post. If I was a superhero, my name would be THE PROCRASTINATOR! It has a certain ring to it, don't you think?

I haven't been able to stay off crafting completely. It's as addictive as any drug (be careful with those knifty knitters, they're the perfect gateway drug for the little ones), but at least I've tried to do other things than knit. In this case, I did some naalebinding again and made myself a cuff. Actually I made two, but this one is prettiest. I'd make hats, but never get around to buying enough wool yarn, so I end up using scraps all the time.

This, now THIS! Is made of win and awesome. My friend, Eumi (follow link to her etsy-store, she makes tasty-looking stuff) sent me this adorable CHIBI-ARPIE! Yes, that must be in all caps. Purple hair, rainbow necklace, even a knitted kitty hat! Not everyone gets to have a mini-me, so I feel very special. Ok, so I don't have green eyes, but in my imagination, I do! Because purple hair and green eyes go so well together.

A while ago I signed up for the flying tawashi swap over at Tawashi Town. It's a very fun swap, where a package with 6 (-ish, the number keeps on increasing, I think they're multiplying in there!) tawashi travel around the world. Each recipient takes out two favorites and add two new ones, along with a post card. The other day it was my turn to receive the package, and this is what I took:
Yes, I know I took three. The rules are bendable, simply replace the ones you take, and maybe don't take all. Don't worry, I added a nice little pile, must get them out of here somehow! Damn tribbles, only trouble with them ;)
