This coat is very cute.

Oh my goodness, I am going crazy. Can you believe these tights? Go to this blog. Go. Make these tights. This is crazy.
I love this crochet giftwrap. Super stylish and adorable. Keep this in mind for Christmas…
Reblogging this delicious Ice Cream Gyoza idea. Oh man, does that sound delicious or what?
I’ve been slouching a bit on the blogging front, which is entirely the fault of my PhD. But I have a few surprises soon, including a fawning post about my new computer*, a series of posts on my wonderful vacation and a few FOs.
In the meantime, I think I’m going to buy a gyoza press.
* My new computer will have the handy feature where I can press a button that actually starts the computer instead of a button that lies and pretends it will start but then doesn’t, and then you have to manually shut it off because the hard drive is spinning but not responding, and then try turning it on again, and then off, and then on, and then off, all the while hoping for a glimpse of that dearest apple icon that means that it is actually doing something, and never seeing it, which I am experiencing at this very moment, and have been for the last 2 hours. All thanks to this guy. I never did get any compensation for the destruction of my computer by Modern Taxi. I reiterate: if you live in Kingston, NEVER use Modern Taxi.
They’ve already been sold, but check out this eye candy by Jennifer Morris! Not only is it beautiful to look at, but you can learn a lot about styling by looking at the various images for each set of jewelry. The various backgrounds used above highlight different aspects of the objects, and I love the effect of what looks like a lensbaby (or something similar, judging from the chromatic aberration). Absolutely gorgeous images.

This is called a Sliced Bread Notebook. It’s stylish, but not in the shape of bread. I am both amused and confused.
I started planning a trip to the States a little while ago and suddenly it’s the end of June and I haven’t blogged for a month and a half. Well, now I’m back. Sort of. I’ve been knitting, that’s for sure, but I’ve been working more than I’ve been knitting. Which is a good thing, because I’m suddenly looking at quite a few papers that need just a little more polishing and they’ll be done. Those are the UFOs I’m working on now; by the end of this year, I’m hoping to have published at least 5!
But you didn’t come here for yet another tirade about how my PhD is killing my blog. You came here to look at pretty pictures! So here are some (click on the photos for links):
Check out this Crochet Lampshade! I am in awe.
I love this Big Box of ADHD. Usually when I see something that makes reference to ADHD, it is cheesy and doesn’t actually involve the disorder or operates on a misrepresentation of what it’s all about. But it seems like this person “gets it.” I think this is a brilliant idea! For each goal or type of project you have, there’s a little drawer, and for each hour you spend on that goal there is a button to put in that drawer.
I especially love the use of buttons, to translate time into something that is tangible. This is a very important tool for people with ADHD, because time is really distorted for them. (Hehe, them. Look at me pretending to be a normie.) Anyhoo, I am totally going to get myself a bunch of jars and mimic this with marbles. I still have my old marble collection so this will be a cinch! (Yes, I had a marble collection. I also had a rock collection, a coin collection, a stamp collection, and a bottle cap collection. Coincidentally, I blame the ADHD.)
