I'm getting close to done with the recent Big Project of Doom, but I got digressed by a couple of Very Small Projects.
(Huh, I can stop outsourcing my images?  Keen!   Nope, it doesn't seem to like embedding more than one image.)

Two "kawaii potatoes" for my niece.   The brown one was first, before I realized that kawaii potatoes are definitionally pink, so I made it potato-colored.   The second one was after I was (very politely) informed that I had done it wrong. :)   Then there was apparently some angst over the idea that she might have to choose between them.   Because, you know, I have so many other people clamoring for kawaii potatoes.   (I shouldn't say that.  Last time it led to Octopus Wars).

Then a tea cozy (well, I guess that's not the official name) for [ profile] shumashi. It's kind of slippy on the glass, but hopefully will be less so on paper.   (Those are leaves.  It looks pretty neat for the amount of easy it was.)

I would never have figured out that the pink one was supposed to be a potato rather than probably-cartoon-origin bouncy cute thing. :)

Potato races!

<img src=[image url]"> has always worked for me for embedding images in lj posts, but that assumes using the html editor rather than the visual editor.

That HTML still works, and is what I ended up using. But there was an "insert image" button that didn't require hosting the image somewhere else first, which seemed intriguing. :)

Potatoes, huh?
I was guessing you were knitting board game pieces from the the picture

(And now I seriously want to knit some itty bitty board game markers)

Is there a pattern online for that teacup cozy?

Yeah, crochet game pieces frequently tempt me. I saw a really funny sheep-and-wolves checkers set a bit back that almost got me to started.

The potatoes are larger than they look from the picture - they're more like actual potato size! (The picture makes them look teeny to me as well; there seems to be some automatic "little cute thing is *little*" brain processing. :) )

Kawaii potatoes! They are indeed just so kawaii! I love them.
