So I’ve found a few downsides to the tablet. First is that the camera is shoddy and no, I’m not trying to be one of those obnoxious people who carry my tablet around to take pictures on of my vacations and experiences. It would’ve been nice to have a decent camera to take pictures of the in progress or finished crochet projects I have on the tablet so I could eliminate my phone as the middle man; however that doesn’t seem to be the case. The second is that I haven’t figured out how to do an auto-spellcheck with the keyboard plugged in, but that’s user error and not tablet error. All things considered though, I’m enjoying my Samsung talent and it’s inspiring me to be more active here, so yay?
Finished Hand Towel
To my immense relief I finished Ry’s requested hand towel this evening while we were watching some anime. I haven’t made a final opinion on if I like the anime yet, but Ry agreed to watch the dubbed version so I could crochet while we were watching.
Not quite sure what happened on the end there but whatever, it’s staying in the house.
I usually do enjoy anime, but Ry prefers to watch them subbed, which would be fine if I didn’t get restless when we are 4 or 5 episodes in on a series binge watch & need to do something other than sit there & watch tv. I have that weird thing where I can watch tv, listen to music or carry on a conversation while crocheting but trying to read subtitles, figure out what’s going on in the animation & crochet at the same time is just to much for me. Hence, yay that we’re watching this one dubbed! I will say that watching anime subbed is so much more satiisfying, the voice casting is usually much better (SevenDeadly Sins, Attack on Titan, Samurai X, etc, etc). I just can’t multitask with it.
And here’s the hand towl in the bathroom…
Cant’t even tell it’s uneven!
I was worried about the fiber not being absorbent enough (it feels so rough) plus the half-double crochet design with the small fiber weight, but Ry just used the towel & said it was fine so I guess we’ll call that a win.
My plan is work on that ripple blanket next, but I also have two library books out that I need to read; I’m competing on holds with an unknown person for Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole series at said library. I saw the SDCC’s preview for The Snowman which they mentioned was based off a book so I was intrigued because the movie looks good, Unfortunately, The Snowman is the 7th book in the Harry Hole series & I didn’t want to jump right to it in case I was missing something. Doesn’t really appear that I am at the moment (I just started book 3 The Redbreast) but we’ll see.
Sending you off with a pic of Gurney during the end of the lost months of the temperature blanket:
He’s just such a happy kitty…
