weeks 348-352

This will be quick. I’ve not really been creating much in the past month because part of me has felt that what I do is trivial, compared with what is going on in the world. Black Lives Matter and have been educating myself on being a better person. It’s been an almost lifelong effort and continues to this day, and will keep going until I’m dead. The hard part is letting your ego not be part of the equation. Actually, the hard part is being in a family full of racist transphobes under the guise of pious Christians/Catholics.

Also, I’m in the process of reorganising everything, so my tools and such have a home. Documenting my weekly crafting will return soon.

weeks 295-296

Knitting is a slow, slow process, so the cable scarf is being done bit by bit.

A bit obvious where I joined the second ball of yarn. Need to get a bit more yarn then do a second half then connect them in the middle.

This will take a while.

Meanwhile, I spent the weekend trying to figure out how to use dpns and failed. Mostly knitted a hat (crocheted a few rows to make the brim smaller).

Not sure why but have yet to take a clear enough picture of the hat.

Oh and made another pillowform.

What was formerly a couple bags, I separated them then sewn all the pieces together into a huge rectangle. When it’s fully stuffed, I will sew closed the open end.
