Taking a social break, everyone.

When you're a knitter and you buy knitwear (so much faster), you usually take a close look at what you're getting. However I still missed this dropped stitch. My eyes hurt now after laddering up this extremely fuzzy, two stranded yarn with two 0.75mm crochet needles, but yay for being able to fix things myself! #knitting #fixingstuff

More #knitting progress, this one has been consuming most of my time. Now to add the sleeves and a hood

Okay, getting to be the 4th person ever to see concrete samples cured in Moon gravity makes up for some if the stuff I've got to deal with at work.

@lapis How to mend small holes in tee shirts:

How to darn a hole in a sock:

Similar technique but this time with an embroidery hoop to mend the crotch of a pair of jeans:

Another good video on darning by hand:

Don't get confused if you look at other videos that teach machine darning since that is a completely different technique.

Today's starting off strong: instead of running the putOnSocks() routine, my brain ran putOnUnderwear() a second time, on the outside of the pants.

Finally finished this sock, it's been slow going for some reason, now to do the other one... #knitting

If you have or will soon have an #ElectricCar, be very wary of buying a "WallBox" charger. I have experiencing a very frustrating set-up which, it turns out, requires me to have a Google Account, sign a new privacy policy, have a _recent_ android phone, install a proprietary app, and sign up to a subscription service (first year free! :D :D :D)... just to activate a core feature I already paid extra to have.
This is #IoT. Garbage you can't own, which makes you a serf, and costs more.

Oooooooooooooor what if I organized my craft room instead HO HO TAKE THAT PANTS

I have told myself that today is a day that I don't want to put pants on, but I also told myself that I can't start a new quilt until I finish one of the two quilts waiting to be bound.

I'm really excited about this new quilt, but I also can't find my goddamn quilting needles.

Sigh. Pants it is, then.

Downloading all my Kindle ebooks and turning them into .epub files, on macOS: sonyaellenmann.com/2018/09/bac

It took several hours (including wait times) and I'm still not 100% done. Hopefully, like, 95% done.

This is my current #crochet project - pinned out so I can track down the origin of an errant chain-space. #fiberarts #yarnuary

Dammit. "just a touch screen terminal, where you type your name and who you have a meeting with"

I'm less excited now. Is there a feeling for when you thought something was SUPER 1970s FUTURE and its just standard 90s dystopia?

ok I got that fairly smoothed down and managed to stick the other #knitting cable end all the way into its socket so hopefully that's okay now.. #knitting #IFixIt
