Abbreviations (assumes use of cable needle for cables – I do them without a cable needle myself):

c1b = Hold next stitch on a cable needle behind the work, K1, K1 from cable needle.

c1f = Hold next stitch on a cable needle in front of the work, K1, K1 from cable needle.

t2r = k2tog without removing stitches from the left needle, then knit the righthand stitch again and pull both stitches off the left needle.

t2l = knit into the back of the second stitch on the left needle round behind the first st without pulling the stitches off the left needle, then k2tog tbl and pull the 2 stitches off the left needle.

pain

More words from the paper journal

He would visualise the weather-pain as something hugely massive — like an entire galaxy — bearing down upon each of the painful locations; eyeballs, temples, eyebrows, forehead, neck and the site of every prior joint or bone injury (of which there were many). Ironically, though, these weather-pain and migraine events would happen in times of low and/or falling barometric pressure, so a better visual metaphor might be black holes pulling on strings or threads tethered to each of those points of pain.

Writer's Block: Fairest one of all

What is something you would never want to change about yourself?


Everything that the MonSter and age are changing about me. Heh. Okay, a more sensible answer: my ability to see both sides of an argument or discussion.

The question when I answered it was:
What is something you would never want to change about yourself?
(in case they decide to change the question, again).

Party Forks / Sporks / Foons / Buffet cutlery

Okay, so, I have some okay plastic sporks but am finding the knife/fork end makes the spoon end uncomfortable to use (and that is the end I use the most). I am looking for proper silverware/flatware sporks, i.e. metal spoons with tines. Like these (which also happen to have a cutting edge, all at one end) or something more round/spoon-like but ideally with longer tines than that.

*does more googling/research*
