Dem Bones

Thus far I've done mostly just organs, with a few glands here and there. I'm branching out into the world of bones, and here's the first. It's just a generic bone, although I supposed I could arguably call it a femur, for the sake of specificity.

The teratoma is still a work in progress, and I've other bone-related body parts in the works, which I'll finish right after I grow an extra set of hands.

New Project Sneak Peek

Here we have the beginnings of a crochet teratoma. Google it. Or just wait a few days till I'm done with it and ill post a Wikipedia definition or something... the pink is the tumorous 'sac', and we have a little foot, a hand, an eyeball, and a kidney thus far. More goodies to be tucked away inside are in the works.

Rock You Like A ...

Last night, hurricane Irene stormed, and I celebrated by drinking white russians, Netflixing, and running around in the rain like a small child. For all the hype, I'm pretty disappointed by the lack of devastation. I mean, people were evacuated! Every Trader Joe's in the city is out of stock, there's no trains running - this is some serious shit! And yet, I swear to God, we had harder rain, like, last Wednesday. Or pretty much any given weekend in April.

The most exciting part of the storm was my snazzy crocheted "Tropical Storm Trunk" (formerly
"Hurricane Hot Pants", I down-graded them with the storm.
