She keeps napping in my light tent, damn her.
My best friend has asked me to finish up a Ravenclaw scarf she started ages ago, and since I taught her to knit in the first place I feel sort of obligated… it shouldn’t take too long, though, since she was over halfway finished with it anyway.
Plus, she lent me her Chibi needles, so I can finally finish up those endpaper mitts. She’s also asked me to photograph some of her gorgeous jewelry, so that she can get her etsy account up:
I love her work. I mean, I dabble in jewelry making occasionally but she understands it the way I do knitting; these creations come straight out of her brain and through her hands and are always stunning.
I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday because I was at a flea market, where I picked up a TON of clothes, as well as three sweaters with good seams to frog. One already has the sleeves off of it,
the other two I may actually get some use out of the way they are. The yarn above is (I think) either an acrylic or an acrylic blend, and there’s lots of it, so it’ll be good for a baby blanket or two. There’s also a black cotton old navy hoodie that I’m definitely leaving in sweater form for the moment. The third is an acrylic chenille type boxy sweater that I suspect is entirely unfashionable, however, it is VERY comfy and fits me well enough, so I’m on the fence about it. Each sweater? $3.
And for those of you who are curious, I am 5’5″ and I weigh 180 pounds. That’s just over 80kg, just under 13 stone. I have a BMI of 30, which puts me firmly in the ‘obese’ category. Do I look obese? I certainly don’t feel obese. Nor do I really plan to lose the 40 pounds that my doctor has asked me to lose; if I happen to do so simply by virtue of living and eating well, that’s fine. I won’t force it. I feel healthy. Judging by the responses I got, I look healthy. Why does there need to be anything more to it?
