Knitting: Spin me a 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.

This week I forget what type of pizza we had, but it was a large instead of extra large.


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

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.

Anime Review: Your Lie in April Ep.1 (Spring is a lie in Canada)

This show caught my eye when I was looking for something short to watch to pass the time between going out.

Immediately I was struck with the vivid cheerfulness of the colours, everything is bright and pastel, like a monitor with the brightness cranked up a bit too high.

The story seems very typical so far...

Knitting Pattern: The Hateful Weight! Daisy's Scarf.

This the third and final part of my Hateful Eight series.

This time we're looking at Daisy Domergue's lovely bumpy orangey scarf.

I wasn't able to get a good look at the ends so I'm unsure if it has fringes. It's a nice textured fabric and I decided to go with a Double Moss Stitch to get that look.

BeerWar Alc./Vol. 2: Old Milwaukee vs Tap Water

The tap water is clear while OM is a healthy urine colour.

The tap water from this well smelled faintly ashy and OM had that generic mainstream beer smell. It's faint though. Some will argue yeast while others barley. There is no significant fruit, hops, or malt in the aroma. Just generic beer.

This time we had an extra-large sausage pizza.


The bugs having been dealt with, our party opted to continue up the high road toward Nulb and its environs. Elefus having been retrieved from Tharp opted to continue with the party.
