Grab your dick and double click for porn, porn, porn!

… is NOT the actual topic of this post, but damn, I’ve had that song stuck in my head all day.

News of the day: Mozilla orders link suggestions after frequency, and the Yarn Harlot blog has surpassed YouTube when I enter Y.

Slept over at Christian’s, watched ‘The Pursuit of Happiness’ and – get this – finished the first chart on the Miralda Shawl! Very exciting. No photos yet, since it still looks like a brown mess of… something, but I’m very enchanted. Choosing the 4.5mm needles seems to be working out, after all. Why 4.5es? Because I could not, for the life of me, find a 4mm circular needle longer than the shortest they come, which is barely enough for a hat, nevermind the 331 stitches Miralda required me to cast on. (Down to 305 though. Yay.)

Though honestly, I have to say one thing: I thought it would be a good idea to cast on this crapload of stitches, so you do the bulk of the work while you’re still motivated and as your motivation lessens, so does the number of stitches in a row. Which, in theory, should motivate you more, because I know there’s nothing as unmotivation and life-force-sucking as the prospect of casting off those 400 stitches. So far, so good. The only problem I’ve discovered: the stitches don’t decrease nearly fast enough. This whole 300-stitches, needing-20-minutes-per-row thing, right in the beginning? Turns out it’s not as fun as it sounds, either.

But on the other hand, it is pretty.

What else? I discovered I can knit as well as purl in the almost-complete dark – we watched some super weird, dimly-lit flick called ‘Sex Movie’, which was exactly as pointless as the title suggest. It was only rated R, so it wasn’t like tere were dicks popping up all over the place like… like daisies or something, like in Shortbus, but for some reason it was also a lot more about sex than Shortbus was. I think this is mostly because Shortbus was essentially a movie about people who just happened to have lots of sex, while this movie was about four people in a room being unable to find a better topic of conversation than teasing each other about their various hang-ups. Plus, while Shortbus is very playful about everything and half the time there’s a penis on screen somebody uses it as a microphone, in this one you don’t even see anything – but it definitely made me recoil and knit VERY FAST to keep from screaming due to absolute grossed-out-ness. (Kudos for grossing Christian out, too. With other parts of the movie, but it was about equal. Except he had nothing to knit and instead hid under his t-shirt.)

So. Ahem. The sock is coming along. ‘The sock’ being the second of the Café Caramel socks; I’m about halfway through the gusset decreases. I’m excited to finish this one, because the notes for my next project will not go into my paper journal,  but instead into the pretty little Moleskine I just bought for exactly that purpose. The most awesome thing about this one is, though, that it’s a special Anniversary Edition for my university (which was founded in 1409) and has all kinds of useful city maps and uni history and god knows what. I’m very excited about it, and it will make a nice memento of (for? about?) this year.

Annnnd… my deeply adored Sand Shawl did little to nothing to protect me from the rain as I walked through half the city center and from one tram stop to the other because there was a problem with the power line or whatever; but I guess that’s what you get for packing a lace scarf instead of a jacket. (For the record, I still like shawls more than jackets. But jackets are better suited for rainy weather.)

So I’m gonna cuddle up under another couple of blankets with a cup of something hot and my Miralda, and watch something sappy. Adieu.

  • Hey! New colours, arrangement, etc!

    Naaaice =)

    Yeah, I’d wondered if you’d fallen down a well, or something, what with the no posting.

    haha… I might be extremely clumsy and clutzy but I’ve never fallen down a well! (this is mostly because of the scarce availability of wells around here, but we’ll just pretend it’s me)

    thanks! I’m super in love with it, plus I can finally write more than one paragraph without feeling like I’ve just totally overwhelmed my layout :D
