on my way to perfecting the art of “stress knitting” check it
this thing was 6 inches long this morning
I am in SERIOUS MARATHON MODE. got my tea, got my knitting, headphones, crazed expression. Got Teen Wolf. This has got to be some kind of diagnosable problem.
Someone please get this book for me.
Wow, heh I was gonna use 6. Yeah! I’ve been there, but it’s rather confusing. *GASP* May I?! May I please be your army-knitter? And I shall limp around using a crochet hook as a cane and we shall have wonderful adventures solving knitting problems!
6 could work too, you’d probably just have to cast on less stitches. Which might make the whole thing easier, come to think of it….
Well, it’s confusing, but the pattern was useful. I ignored most of the rest, like the yarn suggestions, and just picked them on my own. But this is what I use to knit it/find colors and such.
You can’t see the numbers too well, but hopefully it works.
Omg, yes. You are now my army-knitter. And we shall live in a flat full of yarn. THERE IS NOTHING WE CANNOT KNIT (actually there’s probably a lot, but fuck it all we will ignore that)
The beginnings of my own Fourth Doctor scarf. Also, Hamlet.
SO MUCH TIME.
I have ONE paragraph to rewrite and I cannot get it how I want it.
I guess my words just hate me today Dx OH WELL, CARRY ON.
Oh, and this is my new yarn! It’s colorful and pretty and WHY AM I SUCH AN OLD LADY WHY
This is a very good thing, yesterday was freaking annoying.
I don’t have to be at school until 11! Oh, the joys of being a senior and having already taken the PSAT. I slept in, went for a bike ride, read a book, drank tea, and am now watching Doctor Who. I haven’t even done my makeup yet, and am really tempted not to, except for the fact that my makeup basically is my self esteem (hah, yes, pathetic I know) And I’m knitting, because that’s what I do. I got some new yarn, and it’s super pretty. I’ll post a pic later.
It’s super nice, and today is gorgeous outside.
Look at what I finished! My lovely old lady scarf knitted completely while watching Doctor Who. Yeeep. It’s over six feet long (I never measured but it’s way longer than me, and I’m about 5’3”) and has tassels and yeah <3 It’s warm, too, and not scratchy, and it doesn’t look like a complete amateur made it (and a complete amateur DID make it) and actually hangs straight. I’m proud. I don’t finish projects often.
I think I’ll make a striped one out of this stuff next.
Doesn’t it just look wonderfully fluffy and soft? Because it is <3
Knitting is so therapeutic.
This scarf is getting really long.
Guess how much Doctor Who I’ve watched? 8D Since that’s the only time I really knit xD It’s just to convince myself I’m doing something productive lol.
And now I should probably head out, because I’m going out to lunch with a friend who’s visiting from college this weekend. And then going to coffee and tutoring another friend in math. That’ll probably be mainly just coffee. And then I get to revamp my college essay (I’ve got some ideas now~), take notes on the gov chapter, and work out my college application shit with my parents.
And then tomorrow I work all day.
Yeepp. I bet I can fit some more Doctor Who in there somewhere C: /I’m so obsessed.
I woke up at 3:30 this morning and could NOT fall back asleep. I just laid there for two and a half hours tossing and turning, which I know means I got some sleep in there somewhere, but since I checked the clock every fifteen minutes or so it can’t have been much. So I got like maybe 4 hours of sleep. Great.
My scarf is over three feet long now, btw.
But I’m on tumblr
and my knitting looks very appealing, why is this?
ohh I have a late start tomorrow!
Cue nothing getting done tonight.
So apparently I can knit about four inches of drop stitch per episode of Doctor Who
I ‘m an old lady… especially because white was the only color yarn I had that wasn’t disgusting Dx
SOMETHING BAD IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO ROSE I CAN FEEL IT WAIT NO ONE TELL ME NO ONE TELL ME SHIT I HAVE TO WATCH THAT TOMORROW BECAUSE I DON’T WANT TO CRY TONIGHT SHIT I’M GOING TO CRY
So, I finished my application essay about an hour earlier than I thought I would.
I still have an hour before work. Doctor Who? ….. yep.
I wonder if I still remember how to cast stitches. Because I want to knit something.
/off to find the yarn
