Stupid Distracting Hobbies and Missed Eclipses
I did manage to catch the very very tail end of it. You can sort of see the Earth's shadow on the upper right side. If you squint. It was more evident with the bare eye, but my camera sort of caught it. It's not as good of a picture as I can get, but I figured I'd lose my chance if I took the time to grab and set up my stand...thingy. Thing that you put the camera on for steady pictures I'VE LOST THE WORD OMG HELP ME SOMEONE.
What was I distracted by, you ask? A rerun of my (very unwise) favourite show, Mayday (it really don't help my flying anxiety at all) and knitting up this pretty dishcloth:
Lizard Ridge Dishcloth by Laura Aylor (although I've dubbed it 'Waves of Colour'), knit out of some leftover bits of Bernat Handicrafter cotton I've had accumulating for a while. It was a fantastic exercise in short rows, let me tell you, although I did substitute the Purlbee's short row technique for the one in the pattern, since it produced a much cleaner stitch.
I love the cloth and the show, but I don't think either was worth missing the eclipse. :( Did you get out to see it? Was it as amazing as all of the pictures show?
If you don't say "No Heather, wasn't worth it at all, your dishcloth was a much better use of your time", I might cry.
