Sock it to me!

One of the things I like about knitting and crocheting is there is so much to learn and I feel there are so many 'firsts' I can experience.

The other day, I came across a sock loom that I had bought a few years ago. It's the Prym Knitting Sock Loom-Large, I've been avoiding it since I bought it because the instructions made sock-making seem difficult. The instructions are in 7 different languages, so it's a bit of a challenge to locate and follow the english instructions. I cast on some dark grey sock yarn (Always use a dark colour when you're trying something new, it's so easy to see! /end sarcasm)

Ə - Gauze of Awareness

This gauze when wrapped around the head, covering the eyes, (i.e. blind beggar) provides a complete awareness of everything around the wearer within a combat turn's distance. The Gauze does not confer sight, just awareness, so one would know that there is a book on the table but not be able to read the book.

The effects of the Gauze are quite disconcerting to sighted people. All actions that require an Aspect roll are made at a -2 penalty. Blind people using the Gauze are able to do so without penalty and get a +2 bonus to non-mental Resists (e.g. Sleep and Charm spells).

I forget what Pizza it was but I think it was yummy. I remember asking the owner from the menu what was the difference between a White and a Marguerite pizza and he said "salt".

++++ START OF SESSION ++++

We did not have a quorum this week due to Player's business commitments. However the two that did show up were able to go on as side mission. It dovetailed from the previous week.

This week we had the extra large meat lover's pizza with pepperoni out, philly-cheesesteak in.

This week the party didn't really do much so I'll keep it short.

First item on the agenda was a door behind which lived an Ogre. Huang and Honda defeated him easily.

Knitting: Spin me a yarn...in public!

I always get excited when I see someone crafting in public, it gives me the warm fuzzies. It honestly hasn't happened that often and mostly I've seen it at fibre fests or craft shows. I knit anywhere and everywhere that doesn't seem inappropriate. Usually I'm met with curious glances and the occasional 'My grandma used to knit.' Very rarely another yarn-er will come up to me and we'll get into a discussion about what I'm making, the pattern, the type of yarn, etc.

After capturing the fort's defenders and enslaving them they were disarmed and made slaves. They got to keep their armor however.

Animated Movie: Pirate's Passage (It was Arrrrr-right)

This movie was a pleasant surprise. I was looking for a serious movie to watch without having to resort to live-action.

It's a Canadian movie produced by Donald Sutherland (Who is also cast in it). It comes across as a supplement your teacher would use when learning about something. But it's a great movie even outside of the classroom. Kids will enjoy it if they like Pirates and adults will learn a thing or two as well.

Animated Movie: Strange Magic (aka Love Songs Greatest hits)

About the only love song missing from this movie was Frank Sinatra's L.O.V.E.

This movie is 90% musical numbers and I was okay with that. The reviews for the movie aren't great but I really enjoyed it. Of course I love Disney movies and musicals so that's probably part of it.

Anime Review: Yo-kai Watch! Ep. 1

I tried watching the anime having played the game a bit first. I didn't really enjoy the game, it's very repetitive, maybe enjoyable for kids.

I thank Animal Crossing for me recognizing the stag beetles in the opening scene.

I liked the quote: 'You get what you get and you don't get upset', said by the british ghost Jeeves...er...Whisper.

I don't remember what kind of pizza it was, but it was good because I didn't buy it. A Temporal Honor point to the buyer per the rules, also beer was brought and another pizza I didn't buy. I guess my Players are really into Honor Points.

Preamble: Various players were eligible to advance in levels. Two of which qualified for immediate advancement without going to school, which they opted for. This led to questions which I'll poll separately.
