while browsing crafster i reaqlized that i still have pogs around somewhere0 do you remember those?? ppl @ c. have been making awesome purses and covers with them (hmm, might be fun to cover a notebook with, assuming i still have the pogs....).


i got a couple of awsome books and lots of yarn at the yarn store. yum! so i co for a moebius in 100% alpaca!

i finally get to go to a "real" town tomorrow (N, which is pretty big compared to whats up here mostly). and it has a yarn store.

and its not just any yarn store, its where i first got hooked on socks! since last year, ive made almost 2 dozen (!!!) pairs. coolness.

i started the pattern for the bear and knit most of it (minus arms and some parts of ears). i think it will look pretty good, but im not going to do anymore until i have stuffing. weaving in the ends is going to be hell.

plotting patterns for the mobius while starting to knit my second dragon scale sock. and im stuck on the sss (second sock syndrom). im not bored, its a cool pattern...i just dont want to knit it (which is rare, i ussually dont have a prob finising the second sock....its the weaving in of ends....i think i have three pairs done and all they need is the ends woven in!) i think the yarn being acrylic (its the only BRIGHT NEON GREEN i could find for it b4 i left!) doesnt help, since its a bit scratchy....and, well...its acrylic. besides, the soy silk im spinning up is much more fun, and i think it would be sweet plied with some wool for socks. (both white then dye maybe...)

(stolen from Phaedra28 over at KR forums) this seems to fit the mood for me today:
Das war ein Vorspiel nur. Dort wo man Bücher
Verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.
--Heinrich Heine 1820
which they says means:
That was just a prelude. Where they burn books, in the end they also burn men.

i think of this cause my dad is insistent on voting for bush. ughh.



back to reading for school and spinning (mmm i need more sock yarn for school): on the wheel atm is yarn for a teddy bear (knit)- which will require me to make a pattern for it. also am going to spin up yarn for a mobius scarf. a m scarf is a scarf that is neverending. liternally, because the two side intesect/connect with each other with a twist (which is why when you cast on for socks of a hat they tell you to make sure ur stitches arent twisted! u might end up with a mobius scarf). mobius scarves tend to be referred to as semi historical, but they can also be mathmatical. this site is quite entertaining, as are the links at the bottom (and yes, i know i hate math, yet when its combined with knitting and/or spinning its diff, i swear :))

*still* stuck on the boat. there is nothing to do here, though at least i have internet today (though i am constantly monitored by a parent or brother). there seems to be too much time for knitting and spinning (not to mention reading- i find i am fast running out of books, and ive only been here a week and have a week to go!) ive even started in on the book (read that as the textbook) for euro. not fun. i feel so *lucky* that i get to review the last 5000 yrs of history.

i need coffee
i havent had decent coffee since tx
but i need to make sure im not addicted (not yet neways). like a straight edge peson, i like to not be addicted to any substance (that includes bdsm!) and consume nothing addictive past cafine.

speaking of bdsm- have u heard the song rat in a cage (smashing pumpkins)? great song. so is jett's cold hearted bitch. and id list some more that seems to have bdsm overtones to you, but ive shut off my brain while on the boat.

see, what happens (is happening) is that the hallucinations start. due to boredom and the decreased necessity to think on a higher level (remember that my parents are conservative and could care less bout theory and politics). all i hear about from my bro is y im stupid cause im a vegetarian. really, a, i let u hold ur (chauvanistic and homophobic, a true product of neocons, minus the relig) views. enlightemnet is the goal, not the end. you dont need to change your veiws to beleive. it starts as the individual, spreading ideas. that is how true change comes. to try and influence or pinpot how the change comes (and starts and stops) is to deny that we need a permanent state of change. nature is change, and we are prt of nature, despite how humyns have tried to seperate themselves and enslave what they consider natural.

ok stopping with the ecofem/zizek mix. since im too lazy to read ^ it prob doesnt make sense. o well. what that i write does? none.

and i still want handcuffs. i blame J (hl person, totally awesome, M knows how cool he is) and of course camp, though maybe its jsut cause i feel more *open* atm (camp does that to you- i swear)

i just need to be awaay from my parents

Im leaving for the boat today, will be gone 2 weeks. the day after i get back is the family reunion down south (fun drive- o yay)

Im bringing my wheel, lots of fibers, and some knitting stuff with me (small stuff- sock, dishcloth, mitten, scarf sized projects)
My rats also get to come (onyl one got to come last year) so that should make the trip a little more cool.

Also coming are over 10 lbs of school books and stuff ii have to do for school (and this doent count debate- im not taking that stuff on the boat with me!)

One of the few funny fwrds: (or at least the ones i appreciate....)
GOD AND EVE
Eve chats with God.
"Lord, I have a problem."
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"I know that you created me and provided this beautiful garden and all of
these wonderful animals, as well as that hilarious comedic snake, but I'm
just
not happy."
"And why is that Eve?"
"Lord, I am lonely, and I'm sick to death of apples."
"Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for
you."
"Man? What is that Lord?"
"A flawed creature, with many bad traits. He'll lie, cheat and be
vain; all in all, he'll give you a hard time.. But he'll be bigger,
faster and will like to hunt and kill things. I'll create him in such a way
that he will satisfy your physical needs. He will be witless and will revel
in
childish things like fighting and kicking a ball about. He won't be as smart
as you, so he will also need your advice to think properly."
"Sounds great," says Eve, with ironically raised eyebrows, "but what's the
catch Lord?"
"Well,.....you can have him on one condition."
"And what's that Lord? "
"As I said, he'll be proud, arrogant and self-admiring..... so you'll
have to let him believe that I made him first. And it will have to be
our little secret........ you know, woman to woman."





and with that i leave y'all cause i gotta pack since i am very likely being forced to go on the boat

novelty....most if not all the yarns jsut published will be up for sale when i get back home

the colors arent very true here....there is NO purple, and the yellow in the bottom one is much more muted

more lacweight

these are all projects from the last couple weeks....content etc i may list later (hey, im lazy).

Single so it has the twist, its a bit thick and thin to add some more interest, im not really sure what this will become....
There's always some sort of disagreement between me and my mom when it comes to my hair....mostly, her caring, and me, well, not. i'd jsut shave my head occasionally and be down with it, while she wants my hair LONG. and i dont mean long like my hair is now (cause its not). I mean halfway down my back long. like that is ever going to happen again. the middle ground (cept its getting shorter) will hopefully be a mor epixie length hair...



Its funnny. both me and my bro are obsessed with food, but in entirley seperate ways. He's currently trying to build up muscles (peer pressure, anyone? not that im complaining that amuscles on guys/girls are bad, mind you, i just htink its hillarious)....and then theres's me...my mom keeps railing on me for my "morals" of what i choose to eat.*

i spent yesterday dying roivng bright colors...again. actually, most of it is more muted bc im usung crock pot (read: hot pour. a lot of what im doing also seems so have large amounts of green, prpbably bc ive been working with blues and purple so much lately.

* good thing she doesnt rail on me for my other morals, :) she just assumes that i have a conservative mind for everything not involving for or politics...
