Poke-ball scarf and Queen Anne’s lace.

Hai thar!

Today it was quite a decent day,  despite the back pain ( which I have been treating with diclofenac gel),  everything worked out fine. Made it to work on time, got some extra hours for the week, got some planning done for the next couple of months since my lease on the house I’m living in ends in January. Also had alot of coffee,  god, I love coffee, I do. Specially with milk, lactose free. ❤

My “tiny” home cup ;D!

So as I said before, I finished my  first two X-mas presents, you should know, that I am not very fond of the holiday. But heck, I’m trying to brighten up  about it.

I present to you, the poke-ball scarf!

Well, isn’t that one cool scarf!  Made from the pattern  at Ramen Needles. I’m quite proud and In love.  Mine is  longer and thinner, since it’s for a child. I’m hoping he will like it as much as I do, and I’m posting this since I know he won’t see it,  he won’t get it till X-mas and I don’t want to ruin the surprise, but do want to share.  I must make one for myself, tho, I happen to love pokemon.  >_>

Also, this…

This one is fro the mother, it was my first time with Queen Anne’s Lace and I must say it was fun to make and it looks  quite lovely, I want to try this pattern  with  different weight yarns and maybe varigrated!

The first time I tried this pattern, months ago, I was in a total, HURR DURR  mode, I could not, for the life of me, figure it out. And I could not have done so with-out the tutorial at This domestic life. I think I still got it a bit wrong, but I liked it never-the-less. Have to keep practising!

I’m still at the football scarf pattern, I think I have it all figured out, but I want to finish it before I post it. Also, gave up ( for now) on the Tunisian, it was coming out  ugly, and it must be pretty, it’s for the bf!  So I’ replanning it, it must be a round scarf for sure.

That would be all for today 8D  I’m off to get some dinner, all this no moving at all is making me hungry. HA!

Love and caffeine,

Didi Starfish.

Hello there, I should mention that I probably won’t blog at all on weekends, since that is bf time, and I’m distracted by lots of loving to care much for the blog.

This weekend went pretty swell as it usually does,  Friday was nice,  and relaxing. On Saturday we prepared for  Mexico City’s Zombie Walk. I did our make-up on the subway, its not awesome, but it was enoughly  zombieish.

It was a lot of fun, growling and moaning around,  and we found some incredible fellow zombies on the walk. They were too awesome, there was even zombie babies,   we decided we’ll plan our zombie costumes better next year, we sorta improvised them,  I got a dress from bf’s mother to tear apart 8D! it was fun.

El Santo zombified!

Princess zombie, aw. ❤

Aztec sacrifice zombie.


Plant Vs Zombies zombies 😀  it made me happy.

Mickey Zombie.

This one was so weird, me likey.


That grandma was hugging zombies even. ❤

Zombie hands!!!

Every time our piece of the march passed a store they yelled what it was.  XD (Tacos! Tacos! Tacos! ….Jewels! Jewels! Jewels! That’s Mexicans for you.)

Zombie babies. ❤

Zombie hunk, rawr ;D!

Some zombie friends of mine.  :D!

Zombie cutie ❤

Zombie hippies and zombie me.

We greeted my friend Ake in a very zombie way.  He was delicious.

Our master, Hannah.

Zombie Grandma, she was biting people and stuff.<3

Gotta love it.

Wahahahahahah Zombie love!

There were more than 9,000 zombies, we broke the guiness record.  YAY México!

It was fun and extremely exhausting, we finished the night with some beers and  I found out the day after that  all that zombie goodness took it’s toll on my old back injury, so much that I couldn’t go home the night after as I always do.  I was in tears from the pain, and you should know I am no wuss, but I even asked for pain killers, and I do not take drugs. Regrettably I missed a day of work,  I’ll catch up with some extra hours during the week if possible.

On my X-mas presents,  I already finished the Queen Ann’s lace scarf and I’m moving on, making a pattern for a football scarf, learning how to tapestry crochet and do Tunisian.  Let’s see how that goes.

Love, brainz and pain killers,

Didi Starfish.
