[Ravelry FOs] Two Blankie Bunn(ies)

I am going to knit two or more of these because so many friends of hubby’s are dropping babies!

I have finished one within 24 hours of starting (other than embroidering the face – I need to buy some yarn for that), despite sleeping for about 14 hours in the middle due to a migraine.

I weighed the yarn left in the ball after I knit one and there was 53 g left. With a supposed 100g per ball, this means that I should get two Blanket Buddies / Blankie Bunnies out of one ball. I weighed a brand new ball with the ball band taken off and it weighed 102g not 100g and so it is even more likely that I should get two per ball. I have three balls and only need to knit two right now.

A useful link from else-LJ:

I do wonder how this policy would work if the emotionally abusive person in question is your mother. Reconnecting with family becomes much harder, especially if she is the family member you live closest to.

US election and politics - a rare subject on this LJ

I am sad that people are having to post to their LJs with comments disabled just so that they can say what they feel, in order that they not be flamed. I have been avoiding LJ and FB quite a lot recently and/or using the scrollbars a lot when it comes to opinions that I do not agree with. I would never flame someone for they opinions but have been flamed in this way in the past, so I do understand why people do it..

I am not disabling comments or disallowing anonymous comments but I will freeze or delete any flame-wars on my journal, as per usual. Please do not flame me for my opinions or try to "educate" me about how your opinion is better than mine or anyone else's.

P.S. The mood-theme mood on this post has nothing to do with the subject-matter and everything to do with - just how I feel at this second in time. Nauseous. My body and its symptoms are more random, sometimes, than a random thing on random day.
