little kitten basket & the tour lag
aw i made this little basket. it took forEVER to felt
because i have to do all of my felting by hand these days.
if i was a very very tiny kitten i would get inside of it.
*ive posted the free pattern on my knitting site*
so. i am neck deep in national novel writing month!
i am writing my first novel ♥
the goal is to write 2000 words a day
and by the end have over 50,000 words.
i know that math is a bit dodgy... but
with editing and all that... it works.
its funny how fast it all comes out
once you start. its so much easier
than writing songs... because
with songs you dont have
that much room to say
everything you want.
to make every hint
plus im knitting a gigantic afghan and watching
episodes of ghost whisperer online. i am such a nerd.
mostly all of this bed-ridden activity is due to the fact
that i am tour-lagged and have picked up some sort
of hideous cold that has me seeing stars. the only
super cool thing is that i MAY have gotten the
cold from emily saliers! my songwriting guru
gave me a cold. what if joni mitchell gave you
a cold? well, emily is my joni. she had one
on tour and since we were all crammed on
a tiny bus i am guessing that is why im
feeling like a giant marshmallow.
at first i spelled marshmallow marshmEllow.
i thought that was the right way my whole life.
i guess they just arent as laid back as i thought.
im not saying that im saving my kleenex or anything
just because i got my cold from emily!!!!! ha ha ha :)
its just that... i mean.. if you have to get a cold
you may as well get it from someone really cool.
