The Blogger's Prayer

Lo, there do I see my posts.
Lo, there do I see my tweets.
Lo, there do I see my gifsets and my picspams.
Lo, there do I see the line of my blog, back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them on the Internets,
Where the geek may live forever.

astro_noms: (infinity in the palm of your hand)
I've fallen out of the habit of knitting (tbqh, I've fallen out of most habits that don't involve school and/or stress these days), but my aunt recently gave me back a shawl I had given to my grandmother, whopassed away in January, and my aunt thought I may want to have something of Gran's. There was a hole where the shawl got snagged and the yarn snapped, and I wanted to fix it, so I unraveled the plain thread that was used to patch it up. The hole was a bit too big to just sew up, so I decided to rip the shawl up to the hole, splice the yarn, and redo the frogged bit.

The shawl is a Swallowtail, which means nupps, which are kind of a pain in the ass, but which also look pretty cool. I don't actually find them all that difficult, just fiddly, but it'll be nice to get the shawl back in working order again. Of course, summer's coming, so I probably won't get a chance to wear it for the next few months, but at least it'll give me something to do in those moments where my brain refuses to engage in one more second of that whole "thinking" thing.
