I'm afraid that's it. I'm very boring right now, but I'm going to be casting on something before I go to bed tonight, hopefully that means good things for the next episode and more interesting show notes next time as well.

Sitting in a bus station

Somewhere between home and Fort Hood, I'm dying to work on my thing some more but I just know that as soon add I'm in the middle of the row my bus will arrive and force me to stop in the middle of the needle-which I hate to do, as my dpns already leave a chance of losing stitches.

Hopefully I can get home and get some rest tonight before work tomorrow.

I cast on a new thing today.

It's a surprise for episode three and I'm very excited to show y'all when Monday rolls around.

I should be able to put it in my pocket and work on it a lot the next few days

Want All The Yarn!

That's what I'm doing right now.  I've discovered the destash tag on Etsy and i can get all the scrap yarn i want to start trying out the fair isles patterns i want to do.

I also casted on a little hamster plush today,  i just have to figure out what i want to do for the eyes and the stuffing. 

In other news,  it seems like every person i know who was single is now getting engaged.  Very frustrate, so annoy. I have to pretend that I'm sooooo happy for them when I really just want to barf.  The one guy betrayed a good friend of mine.  The other was dead set on marrying me for about two seconds. 

I just hate people,  because they use social media to more or less compete it's like a never ending high school reunion.  And i just can't understand my attachment to these people who meant nothing to me when I saw them everyday,  now i haven't seen them in two and a half years and I'm affected by all these little things that i shouldn't give a rat's ass about.

Anyway i have my yarn and my needles, and I'm creating tons of things. I just want a less mindless pattern so i don't have to think so much about these dumb things that bother me.

A word about knitting

Several words, actually.

I've picked knitting up again because I find great joy in creating things, and even more when those things are useful.

I am growing bored with simple stockinette patterns and garter stitches, so I've finally joined Ravelry and found my way to the Nymphalidea shawl. It's everything I want in my next project. A different shape, a little bit of lacy looking edge, and TWO COLORS. I've tried the pattern with some scrap yarn and I think I've pretty much got it down, so I'm getting ready to pull a couple skeins from my stash and get going.

But there is a roadblock. Balling the yarn. I HATE HATE HATE knitting off of a skein. It's not so bad if they're center pull, but as my luck would have it, of the colors I chose one was and the other was not. And of course being the oddball I am I have to have continuity, so I'm balling up both of these skeins. And this means that I have to unwind the one skein from the outside. I know, first world problems, right?

Anyhow, I'm going to finish winding this ball so I can go lay down, it's nearly 2 am and I have got to get back on a semi normal sleep schedule, and my back is killing me.

Link to the pattern here, since my phone is fighting me.
