Howdy, friends and strangers!

This is my intro post. I figured I'd better have one.

This journal is a mix of fannish stuff, ponderings, computer geekery, art and random cookery experiments. More personal posts are friends-locked, some with tighter filters than others.

If you want to write fic for me, here is my Generic Ficathon Elaboration Post.

After you have friended/subscribed to me, I would appreciate it if you drop me a comment here, saying hello and what brought you here. No need to ask permission beforehand, but it would be nice to give me a note afterwards.

At the request of [personal profile] fred_mouse I am posting a picture of the most recent knitting spools with a scale comparison, to wit, two rulers next to them. The rulers are in both centimetres and inches, so hopefully that makes things clear.

Armed with the information gathered in previous efforts, as well as additional materials, I continued on in the search for the desired small small-gauge knitting spool.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have, in the past, donated money to support wikipedia.

However, this:
http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/jan/23/wikipedia-bans-editors-from-gender-related-articles-amid-gamergate-controversy
http://internet.gawker.com/wikipedia-purged-a-group-of-feminist-editors-because-of-1681463331

is the last straw.

Until you fix wikipedia's systemic bias against women, you will not get another penny from me. Before you say "we are not responsible" -- you are, because you are *financing* this toxic atmosphere. The buck stops with you.

If one wishes to use paper clips for wire-work that involves bending or un-bending said paper clips, do not use "non-slip" paper-clips: as soon as you bend them, they break. Presumably because the extra stuff they do to make them non-slip work-hardens the wire to such an extent that it is brittle.

Oh well. Now I know.

One of the frustrating things about knitting spools is that if one wants something that does more than four stitches per row, all that one can find to buy are these plastic things with thick pegs that are spaced wide apart; which is all very well if one only uses chunky yarn, or is happy with loose lacy stitches. It's absolutely no good if one wants to make a tube from lace-weight yarn with small enough holes so that one can put beads down the middle without them falling out. Which I do.

So over the last little while, I've been looking at tutorials for DIY knitting spools. Of course, most of them are flimsy crap - toilet rolls with popsicle sticks, crudely cut out drink bottles - or require skills or items which I don't have and can't get, such as wooden thread spools. However, there have been some that looked like they had potential. So today I tried a few of them.

So... I still don't have the Ideal Knitting Spool that I am seeking. (sigh)

Ooops! Here's another thing I made in December, but didn't post because I hadn't even photographed it yet!

Two more items which I made in December, but forgot to post about because the pictures were still on the camera.

The start of December, I finished off a number of half-done projects so that I could contribute to the "Creating A Welcome" craft market which was raising money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, which had been pointed out to me by [livejournal.com profile] reynardo which we had both intended to make gifts for, but other things happened... so I was making gifts at the start of December. December was also the month of last-minute gifts and of one more fan fest.

So that was a year full of craft! I'd forgotten the huge amount I'd done, not just when I was off work, but all through the year. So that's good - I have Accomplished!

October was all-out crafting, since I was feeling a bit better in my recovery. The big thing this month was SCALESssssss, but there was also maille, crochet and general jewellerying.
