That’s a damn awesome assumption, anon!
(and even partially accurate)
I wanna know what people assume about me because of my tumblr.
Put an assumption in my ask. I’ll confirm or dispute it. I’m not gonna be mean or anything, I’m just very interested. You can go anon if you want.
There is no use in waiting for the stars to align—one must move them oneself to get anything of substance done.
YESSSS. is this the first you’re attempting to knit (sew? stitch? crochet? jury rig? idk)? and I was referring more to the tendency to fly by the seat of one’s pants, but, yes, I think you can guess which of my projects might be smoking rn. xD
Oh, not at all! I’ve been knitting for years, but this is a new technique I’m using and did not account for a couple new things. This is technically also the second design in this theme, but I also need to finish/tweak the first one, as well.
/sensing a theme here yet?
ahaha, you and me both. but what was the pattern meant to look like?
One of a growing set of secret Arthurian/Celtic patterns! :P
(no, but I will post the picture that inspired me along with the finished pattern—which hopefully won’t take me terribly long to finish.)
What projects are puffing up smoke (or blowing up) in your face? Or can I guess at that, heh?
Working on a sweater of my own design and flying by the seat of my pants, as per usual, and it mildly blew up in my face?
augh….oh gosh, I HATE doing that. ******tea/sympathy******
The tearing back is really my fault for not doing a trial of the motif after teaching myself this new cabling technique? And it wasn’t because I did anything wrong, per say (though the design did need tweaking), but that the cabling technique for closed cables adds 5 extra stitches you want to start a new cable and I hadn’t accounted for the extra TEN when I initially made the design (because I didn’t know about it then!)
In all honesty, it’s actually a really neat design technique, and one that makes all my wildest Celtic knotwork and spiral design ideas suddenly very possible, and I really wish I could remember who gave me this cabling book so I could thank them profusely?
(it was probably my mother, in which case I rescind my statement, but that’s a whole ‘nother bucket of worms.)
such is my life
Sometimes those born in Ynys Carreg aren’t suited for a life of learning, for a life full to the brim of ancient teachings and Old traditions. Each has their own destiny to follow, and it is not always to this grove.
I’ve got a fae girl I will probably just exalt unless someone else wants her? Her colors just aren’t quite my cup of tea.
Brocaeron, which is based off the Welsh brocio aeron for “Poke Berry”. She’s clown rose/spring green/black, and she’ll be grown up in two days, so here is a preview of her as an adult:
4-5k for whoever wants her, otherwise once she’s an adult I will exalt her because I need more space in my lair for new eggs and I am unsure I will gather 90kT in four days?
Either send an ask here, or send a crossroads to atomicpen #78224 on FR for her—would love to see her go to a good home and NOT be exalted, because that’s what I’ll be doing if no one wants her, so I’d rather not see her go to another lair just for fodder.
Reblogging on the main blog because I dont have a lot of followers on my FR one, and I don’t want anyone who might want this girl to miss out just because of that fact?
