Blodeuwedd The Hat…

…and various other things.

 

Since NaNoWriMo is now coming to a middle, I thought I’d get in high gear in finally planning my own Winter accoutrements. Long has the project page for Blodeuwedd The Hat sat in my Ravelry projects, uncompleted. Up until now, I’ve been making due with the hat pictured below that I crocheted years ago.

 

Crocheted Mexicana Hat v2_00006_001

Now, I’m not saying that this current hat hasn’t served me well. It has. I am just looking for something warmer and more air tight/heat trapping.

 

So, using the Beanie 212 pattern, I’m going to go completely off the rails with the color design, to the best of my abilities. This new hat is going to be made of washable wool. It’s going to be at least three different colors. I am going to get more in if I can via scrap yarn. Topping this off, the scarf and gloves I’m making to accompany the hat will match it, again, to the best of my abilities.

 

I can see it in my mind. I just need to figure out how to design it properly.

 

In other stuff, I am teaching myself to write knitting patterns. It’s the next step in this journey I embarked on a little over ten years ago. I figured it was time to take it to the next level and get my feet wet with learning how to properly write patterns. I have two books on the subject, both of which are very informative. The two books are:

The Beginner’s Guide to Writing Knitting Patterns by Kate Atherley

Teach Yourself Visually Knitting Design by Sharon Turner

 

I know that this is, by no means, the entirety of knowledgeable literature when it comes to pattern writing and knitting/crochet design. This is just the beginning of my long-term exploration of the subjects. There’s a lot for me to learn but I’m up to the challenge.

 

Also on the topic of new books and on the subject of personal challenges is my acquisition of a cookbook. I have Maangchi’s Real Korean Cooking and I fully intend to use it. This is the first cookbook I’ve purchased. I’m hopeful I can get some food to make all these wonderful dishes.

 

Onward to present projects. Villimarjatar. I brushed against it the other day on my way to the keyboard to do some NaNoWriMo updating but, other than that, I haven’t touched it. I’m presently on the third row of the second pattern repeat. I’m hoping to get quite a bit done tonight since I’m finally ahead in other things. I live in hope.

 

As to NaNoWriMo, it doesn’t look like I’m going to get to the end of my story this year either even though I will exceed the 50,000 threshold. Still way too many characters and too deep a plot. Still, I like the story enough that I’m going to keep working on it beyond NaNoWriMo. I hope anyway. It’s a good bet my friend will be on me to write it because he wants to see it come to fruition too.

 

I’ve got to go now. My Aerogarden is whining for water. The tomatoes drink the level down almost daily now that they’re bigger and fruiting again. Later.

Now I’m In Trouble

I just got the welcoming e-mail from WordPress for the Writing 101 thing. Should my belly be doing somersaults like this or what?

 

All I can do is my best. *deep breathing into a paper bag*

 

I posted a brief introduction to the potentially thousands of people participating in this. It’s even gotten a few likes. I just hope I can keep the momentum of excitement up when it comes to my writing. I’ll also have to remember to tag everything done in assignment as “writing101”.

 

I’m both giddy and nervous right now but I’m going to knock back the nervousness and allow the giddiness to run a little rampant. I haven’t been involved in a constructive writing class since I was in college. This really is very exciting. Rolling on the floor laughing

 

My short term goal with this is to complete it admirably and honorably. My long term goal is…: NaNoWriMo. *suspense music*

 

I’ve talked it over with my therapist and, unlike Airhead, she has full confidence in my abilities based on her reading the infamous life changing letter I wrote. So, to someone college and medical school educated, I’ve got the chops to write. I just have to do it.

 

I haven’t been up to much else today. Just going over some of the story I wrote last night. I’m really hoping I can finish this one. I like the premise and there aren’t nearly enough stories about Polyamorous relationships out there. So sayeth I. Anyway.

 

I did manage to temporarily pot the Tangelo seedlings and now I have to read more about their habits.

There are four coming up. One is still mostly beneath the soil while the other three have sprouted out. I really hope they don’t get too big. I would love to have fruit without having to move to Florida or some such place.

 

In the realm of Crocheting, I’m a little further along on the October Rust Birthday Shawl. I’m presently at twenty one rows.

I love this pattern. It’s called the Top-Down Shawl and it was written by Nazanin S. Fard. It’s so relaxing, once you get into the groove of the chain one vs double crochet repeats. Starting it off is a little frustrating but, thankfully, it doesn’t take up many rows before you’re into the cakewalk part. I’ve been doing this pattern mostly while watching movies or YouTube videos. My compliments to the designer.

 

The yarn I’m using is Knit Picks Swish Tonal yarn in the colorway Wine Tasting. I bought it specifically to make this shawl and it’s turning out perfect. I’m glad I bought it when I did because, shortly after I got it, they discontinued the line. I’m hoping to have enough left over to make a pair of matching gloves.

 

Okay, that’s enough blogging for right now. I’ve got creative writing and crocheting to do.

 

Later, Peoples of the Sun! Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

Upcoming Stuff

It’s my birthday!!! It’s my birthday!!! It’s my birthday… *dancing*

 

My birthday is coming up, within the next two weeks. I’ll be 34 years old. Yes, ancient. Kidding. Birthday cake

 

I’m hoping to drop a few “Shocking!!!” things this year. I’m not going to say what they are until they come to fruition. There’s a nice vague mystery for you all to ponder. Rolling on the floor laughing

 

Nothing much else is happening in my life right now. I am working on a few crafting projects, Billy the Bear, the Rainstorm II socks and Bruce’s gloves (sporadically).

 

I am almost completed Billy The Bear. He’s for the Paternal Parental. I should have him completed by tonight but here’s a picture of him from earlier today.

 

Yes, that is my messy cluttered desk the bear is sitting on. This pattern is from Lion Brand Yarns and is one I’ve done previously. I made a bear for the Maternal Parental, only for hers, I used a G hook. This time, I used an H hook and got a bigger bear for my bargain. The name of the pattern is Buddy Bear and the pattern number on Lion Brand is 80359.

 

Once I get the above pattern completed, I’ll probably go back to the Rainstorm II socks.

 

This pattern is a dream to work. It’s called the Misti Sock Family and it’s the largest Men’s size I’m using because I happen to be a Hobbit. Kidding. My feet are large though. I wear a 9.5US Men’s shoe. This is the fifth time I’ve used this pattern to make socks to completion. I did make an attempt to do four at a time but got sidetracked by other projects and frogged them. I am currently 45% completed with this project. Yay!

 

The only other thing I have on my plate at this time is this mystery blogging project from WordPress. Starting tomorrow, I will perform the tasks as I receive them in my e-mail. I have no clue what it’s going to be about. I just know that I am going to complete it all. I’m determined to do it. I spend quite a bit of time either excoriating myself or outright running away from potential writing projects as they come up due to fear. Fear of judgment and fear of success. I have a big issue with self-esteem when it comes to writing. 2015 is the year this changes for the better. Sun

 

Who knows? Maybe this new attitude will lead to my finally doing NaNoWriMo.

 

Tonight’s agenda is: watching The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers with the Maternal Parental. Filmstrip

 

Have a fantastic day, Peoples of the Sun. Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

Petrified Progress

I am making significant progress on both the Rainstorm II socks and Bruce’s Gloves.

 

 

Why is the progress petrified? Well may you ask, Weary Internet Traveler. You see, I just posted the first part of a story I’ve been working on since 2008 to Facebook for everyone to see. Cringe worthy, right? YES. Yes, it is.

 

In order to prevent myself from immediately tearing it down from my wall, I’ve temporarily banned myself from using Facebook until this gnawing feeling of doom subsides from my stomach. So, instead, I will be knitting on Rainstorm II while listening to music.

 

Not much else is happening. Kathleen got her doilies and loved them. I’m overjoyed that she thought highly of them.

 

My plants are growing like weeds and I just planted Mesclun greens, which I hope will grow.

 

Oh yeah, speaking of growing things and thanks to John Kohler’s video on it, I am working on getting an Aerogarden. If all goes to plan, I should have it set up on Bookcase Two within two month’s time. There’s more room behind Bookcase Two than Bookcase One for cord space and adjustment of the overhead light. Plus, it’s away from all forms of light in the dark corner of my room. I can more effectively monitor the growth rate of the plants without worrying about them getting too much light or drying out because of the heat of the sun.

 

If all doesn’t go according to plan, then I’ll have to acquire another Rolling Stand or something to put it on.

 

I’ll also be getting my first mushroom kit later this year. This is going to be quite a growing year for me. Yay!

 

Later, Earthlings! Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

I Finished It!!!!! Finally…

You’ll just have to take my word for it that I’ve completed Kathleen’s Coffee Table Topper. I was so tired at the end of all that single crocheting that I printed postage without thinking to take a picture of the finished doily. Hopefully, when it all gets to its forever home, my friend will take a picture which I will then share with you.

 

I am so tired right now. I crocheted the entire night to get the doily finished in time for my deadline of the 17th. Now that I’ve got this completed, I can move on to another in the long list of projects I’m doing. My finger and thumb are too tired from crocheting with that 1.65mm hook right now, so I think I’ll knit for a while or until my hands get tired from that. I’ve got quite a backlog of things to make too. Bruce’s Gloves (remember those?) are sitting here on my desk, crying. So are my socks. The wedding/anniversary gift doilies will be my very next crocheted project.

 

First, though, I’m going to get some sleep. Later, Earthlings! Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

Finish It!!!

 

 

Say hello to my two newest friends. Bookcases One and Two took me less than three hours total time to assemble and, I have to say it, they’re wonderful.

 

In truth, I needed them because my room was a lesson in chaos. I had DVDs and Blu-rays stacked against my closet door and books stacked on a stand in one corner of my room. Now, I have organization and I love it. With the installation of the bookcases, my head feels so much clearer. Sun

 

 

Now, down to business. This doily is getting completed on or before the seventeenth. I was ill (again) with a cold and allergies and couldn’t crochet during that time. So, I’m going to spend all of tonight listening to music and crocheting. Hopefully, I’ll make some headway with the doily. If all goes well, I’ll get a wing done by the end of tonight and another done by the end of the day.

 

Incidentally, I found the yarn for that commission. Now all I’ve got to do is convince the intended recipient of the $35.00USD worth of the gloves. Considering the formula standard used for pricing knitted and crocheted objects, she’s getting it for cheap. Most of the people I’ve come across double the price of the yarn (assuming the crafter is acquiring it) plus time and labor. Oddly enough, no one ever wants to pay this. Crafting. It’s a labor of love. Crying face

 

Onto other topics. My Spring Crazy has been unleashed. I transplanted/made cuttings of my Pelargoniums and Coleus. I finally also got rid of the main Coleus pot from last year. Specifically the plants, the pot was reused for Pelargoniums. Right now, I have a sea of Pelargoniums sitting on and around my windowsills. I’m really hopeful that they’ll grow.

 

I know I should have done this stuff weeks ago but the bug to do it just hit me. I’m just hopeful that the Pelargoniums take root/survive the transplant shock.

 

One thing I cannot wait to get is a Golden Pothos plant. Hopefully, I’ll find one cheap at the supermarket before it closes its doors for good in April. Bookcase One is in a very sunny location in my room and is an ideal spot for such a plant. Though, I’d better go on the prowl for containers to prevent water getting on Bookcase One. Red rose

 

That’s enough whining. Now, for me to get to work. Later, Earthlings! Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

Hello, Earthlings…

Say hello to my little friend.

 

No, wait.

 

Say hello to Kathleen’s Coffee Table Topper at seventeen rounds. This pattern has a tendency to bunch up early on, before the wings are crocheted on. It is fully round, I can assure you.

 

My original finish date of the 7th of March has been postponed until the 9th. I have a really bad cold on top of allergies. For those in the know of what that feels like, you can imagine what I’m going through right now. Crying face

 

I’m starting to feel marginally better though. With that improvement, my crochet skills have increased.

 

Ran across an interesting quiz on a friend’s Facebook page. It’s called the ACE Study Quiz and it measures the impact of Childhood trauma on adult health outcomes. It is featured in an NPR story about the ten questions most doctors are afraid to ask.

 

You just know I aced this one. /sarcasm. Actually, I got an eight out of ten on this particular quiz. Apparently, most people score a 2-4. Overachiever, I am. Smile with tongue out

 

I’m not up to much today. Just installing a Blu-ray burner/player in my computer and watching ALL THE DVDs and BLU-RAYS! I may also slink out to get some food. I am still in the process of replying to people. Who knew I was so darn popular? Yes, this includes you, Lotta. It’s funny, because normally, I don’t get a drop of e-mail outside of a few friends and, suddenly, I’m bombarded with a slew of correspondence from all over the world. I’m not complaining as I love talking with the people who’ve written. I just find this communication uptick interesting.

 

Incidentally, while out paying the Renter’s insurance, I got a possible commission for a pair of gloves. A part of me wants to make them for free but I need to pay for things. Now, if I can just find three skeins of Wine colored Superwash Cashmere Merino Wool yarn in my stash without hitting up Lion Brand, I’ll be a happy camper. Thankfully, the commission is for a woman with normal sized hands, so that’s not as much knitting as I normally have to do for myself. I could probably bust them out in a week, assuming I can find that yarn.

 

I got another request for a Hobbes Doll. As I do this for free, per the request of the pattern designer and the general feeling of the creator of Calvin and Hobbes, I had to temporarily decline the request until July. I should be finished with all the commissions and promised items I have in place by then. Cashy money pays bills and thus comes first while promised items to friends come second.

 

The clever irony in all of this is that I still haven’t made MY Winter gear and it’s almost Spring. I’m too darn self-sacrificing.

 

Anyway, I wish you all a pleasant and happy weekend filled with the finest everything good. Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

Taking Classes

Sort of…

 

Thank you, MIT for starting OpenCourseWare as a thing. Due to your generosity, I am able to take classes I wouldn’t normally be able to take due to the Agoraphobia. Specifically, I am taking:

 

Fundamentals of Biology
Introduction to Biology
Introductory Biology
Introduction to Psychology
Atomic and Optical Physics
Quantum Physics I and II
The Early Universe
Exploring Black Holes: General Relativity and Astrophysics
Engineering Mathematics: Linear Algebra and ODEs
Geometric Folding Algorithms
STEM Concept Videos
Engineering Dynamics
Chemistry Behind the Magic
Introduction to Algorithms
Probabilistic Systems Analysis and Applied Probability
Linear Algebra Recitations
Discrete Stochastic Processes
Differential Equations
Introduction to Computer Science and Programming
Introductory Quantum Mechanics II

 

I’m going to be very contentedly busy over the next few weeks. My computer choked several times getting the videos for the classes, but I managed it in the end. Open-mouthed smile

 

In addition to this, I’ve started a pair of socks. Called Rainstorm II, these are the first non-Lion Brand wool socks I’ve made. I got the yarn from Knit Picks. It’s Stroll Hand-painted in the colorway Crystal Hand-painted.

 

 

I am doing them two at a time, so that I can have a pair of socks by the end of the labor. I’m working primarily at night, though, I may make this my carrying project for when I leave the house to go on appointments. They are so soft… Smile

 

I’m also working on Kathleen’s Other Doily. Her Coffee Table Topper is coming along quite well.

 

 

In addition to all of that, I’m still working on Bruce’s Gloves. The good news is, I’m out of the ribbing and into the body. The bad news is, I cannot really see the black yarn at night. I mean, I can see its physical form on my table but I cannot determine definition of the yarn thread. I think it might be time to see the eye doctor.

 

 

Glaucoma and Cataracts both run in my family. So, it’s only a matter of time, I suppose, until I’m diagnosed. I’m really hoping for it to be much later in my life. Annoyed

 

So far, so good on the sleeping front. I have been sleeping a normal amount of hours. I’ve been getting restful sleep and no nightmares of a PTSD nature. Wow, that medication really works!

 

About the only things I really need to do are get back in contact with people I haven’t contacted since this whole thing began and clean my room.

 

The communication is coming people. Prepare yourselves. Later! Rolling on the floor laughingRed heartRainbow

Better Living Through Chemicals

Met my new p-doc on Friday. He’s a nice person. He’s also highly effective at mixing the anti-lunacy cocktail of medications I require for what passes for normal in my world. Apparently, someone forgot to put down at That Place the fact that I have Bipolar Disorder. As you can probably tell from this blog, I don’t exactly keep that little factoid hidden from prying eyes. Especially when those prying eyes happen to be medical professionals tasked with the heavy burden of treating my illnesses.

 

For the record, I was diagnosed (at different times) with Bipolar Disorder II, PTSD, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder with Agoraphobia becoming a problem child in recent years. Not a secret in the slightest. So, to have it divulged twice that not only was I not being fully treated for my illnesses but that my records have yet to transfer from the other place is getting me a little hot under the collar.

 

Thankfully, Doc L set me straight upon hearing from my own mouth what was going on with me. He adjusted the two medications I take, Aripriprazole and Escitalopram, as well as adding in a new medication called Prazosin. For the first time in a long time, I haven’t had nightmares, haven’t felt super anxious and haven’t felt majorly depressed. I haven’t had a single flashback since Saturday. For the first time in quite a while, I feel motivated to get stuff done, including writing and crafting. I’ve even been sleeping better since I first took the new regimen of medication on Saturday.

 

It’s early days, but I feel hopeful about this new cocktail.

 

In other related news, due to the hypersomnia, I gained weight despite my exercising like a neurotic freakazoid. Even though I moved around quite a bit, sleeping upwards of 12 –14 hours a day took its toll on my atmospheric displacement. To that end, I’m cutting any and all junk food from my intake of food. I’m also halving my sugar intake. This will doubtless send MyFitnessPal for a tailspin of thinking I’m starving myself but, let me assure you, I’m not. I eat to satiation everyday, without fail. I just tend to eat low calorie foods when I’m not gorging myself on tea.

 

I’ll have to very carefully count what and how much I eat to ensure I don’t set off the alarms of the site.

 

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of you who sent kind words to me during my recovery period. I’m incredibly grateful for your friendship and hold it close to my heart. *giant hugs for you all*

 

In the realm of Knitting and Crocheting, I am on round twelve of the second doily and no further along with the gloves. That changes today. I’m not feeling like my world is spiraling out of control anymore, so back to work. Happily, I’ve also got the Hobbes doll I’m making for a new friend to look forward to crafting. As soon as the stuff my new friend mailed to me gets here, I’ll get started on it. I should have it turned around and ready to leave for its forever home by 1 March.

 

While I was recuperating, I had a chance to watch a few concerts. Specifically, Marilyn Manson’s Guns, God and Government compilation show and Queen’s Live Aid set from the mid-80s. Both concerts really served to lift my spirits and get my mood on the right track. Yay. Red heartNote

 

Today’s agenda is to finish watching LOTR – The Extended Edition, baking two loaves of bread, finishing one doily before starting on the next one, making progress with the gloves and last but certainly not least, exercising after carefully counting my calories. That’s all for now. Thanks for reading. Later! Rolling on the floor laughing

Ew, Depression…

Apparently, I am tanking mood wise. I don’t know what’s bringing it on but it isn’t fun to experience a sudden feeling of overwhelming woe and foreboding clutching at the pit of my very core.

 

This is happening pretty fast too. This abysmal feeling. I’m trying to use the CBT stuff I learned but to no avail. This emotional surge is just too thick. The only thing keeping me somewhat steady right now is my fingers tapping on this keyboard. What I really feel like doing is crying my eyes out for no apparent reason. It’s either that or retail therapy and, as an Impoverished American™, I am unable to participate in the latter due to some semblance of sanity remaining in my mind and a lack of finances in my pet bank accounts.

 

With every fiber of my being, I am trying to focus but it is proving difficult. I think I’ll ruin a few good stories I’ve been working on by tapping away at them in my altered state. That’s the more noble option in this mindset.

 

In other creative endeavors, Kathleen’s Cosmos doilies are almost complete. I will be working on the second batch of Cosmos doilies, in black, during the daylight hours only. I’m not as young as I once was when I could read tiny writing in a darkened room. Seeing black thread, without the benefit of an Ott-lite, in my dimly lit room, while trying to hook said thread with a 1.65mm hook is truly asking too much of me. So, in place of that, at night, I’ll work on Bruce’s black gloves. I can at least feel my way with those. Ha ha.

 

Ah, hell. Everything is distracting me now. I feel like my mind is being pulled in one thousand different directions at one time in multiple dimensions. I’m hoping that this will pass quickly. It’s just a Rapid Cycling event, I’m sure. It’s not a part of my bi-annual meteoric rise/crash and burn events. It’s too early for it to be that as those charming moments normally hit in May/June and October/November.

 

I’d better end this post here as my train of thought just went out the window. Instead of ruining my stories, I think I’ll absorb science videos on YouTube or something. Maybe my brain will make an inspired leap while in this altered state. Likely not. Still, it’s better than weeping in the corner. Sad smileRolling on the floor laughingCrying face

Magpie Mind Crafting

Let’s count, shall we?

 

I have:

  1. Seven projects I’m actively working on.
  2. Seven projects on my “to do” list.
  3. Two books to read.
  4. A protégé to teach.
  5. Pattern writing to learn to do.

 

So, why am I, even now itching to start a new knitting and crocheting project?

 

On top of all of this, I am so sleepy that I cannot function at the present time. Any notion of my doing all of these things is wishful thinking on my part.

 

For knitting, my addled brain wants to restart Villimarjatar. I tried it once previously and decided to frog it in favor of working it on larger needles. Well, I have the needles now. The only thing that has been stopping me has been my full schedule of projects. That, and an unwavering fear of catastrophically messing the project up. With the exception of my failed attempt at Villimarjatar, I’ve never knitted lace before in my life. So, this would be a first if I could get the project completed.

 

For crocheting, my addled brain wants to start the In Love With Color Throw. I just finished a Hexagon afghan and now my mind wants to do an Octagon and Squares afghan. Technically, nothing is stopping me for this one except for my responsibility to the projects I have on the table right now. I could get this afghan done in a few days and come back to everything else. It wouldn’t be right but I could do it.

 

Can you really blame me for my indecision though? Both patterns are gorgeous!

 

I’m a little further along on the gloves. I now proudly have nine rounds done on both. I’ve just got six more rounds to do before I’m into the main body of the gloves. Hopefully, I can achieve that level of completion by tonight at the earliest. It is my preference to be beyond the thumbs by noon. This project really shouldn’t take so long. I just have to focus and try not to sleep. Rolling on the floor laughing

Sudden Hypersomnia

I went from not sleeping to sleeping too much. I don’t know how long this will last, but this sudden bout of hypersomnia sure is annoying. I can’t seem to get anything done. I’ll be in the middle of a project (like now!) and I’ll start yawning. Before I get to the end of it, my head is drooping towards the desk. This is completely insane. This is interfering in my talking with my friends, my work and even my eating schedule. There has to be a Happy Medium between Insomnia and Hypersomnia for me. There just has to be. Sad smile

 

Due to the above mentioned, I am no further along on the project I’ve been working on. The gloves are still at five rounds and judging by my yawning right now, there doesn’t look to be a change anytime today. I’m going to go to sleep one more time and try again in a few hours. If this fails to but an end to my sleepy spells, I’m just going to watch movies for the rest of today while I wait for tomorrow to come around. Perhaps a forced waking cycle will jumpstart my sleep patterns to act right. I don’t like it when things interfere with my work. Sad smile

 

As if oversleeping weren’t bad enough, I’ve been having nightmares about my former neighborhood again. PTSD worthy nightmares. I just can’t seem to shake the place from my system and it’s been more than eleven years since I’ve lived there. It’s got its claws in me pretty deep. I still can’t conceive how people are able to sleep comfortably at night while their fellow human beings are forced to live in such terrible circumstances like the ones I grew up in. Are people really that devoid of compassion? That’s mighty troubling if they are. Crying face

 

Well, I’m at the end of my wake time. Again. I’ll probably post again tonight if I get any further along on the gloves or tomorrow if I have to brute force my wakefulness. Later. 

Handschuhe Times Three–Bruce’s Gloves

I’m finally back to working on this project. This second pair of gloves in a series of three is for my friend’s father, Bruce. I’m presently about five rounds into the cuffs of the gloves.

Thankfully, Bruce has hands about the same size as mine. So, there’s no need for wild speculation as to the measurements. I’ll just give about half an inch of extra for each finger in case he likes to pull his gloves on tightly.

 

I am particularly tired right now. I was up half the night for no purpose. I just couldn’t sleep for some reason. Annoyed

 

I would seriously consider going back to bed until I’d gotten some rest but I have an important appointment to keep today and I don’t want to miss it. It’s quite impossible to reschedule for it. So, up I am.

 

I’m most likely going to watch movies until my mind wakes up…or at least becomes coherent enough to start knitting again. My goal right now? Breakfast and tea. Later. BowlCoffee cup
