One-handed Hooking

I finally got tired of not being able to knit or crochet properly this past week. For the past while I've been doing a one handed crochet with my left hand that is very slow. I finally figured out a comfortable position that allows me to crochet normally and almost at the speed I'm used to. I was having serious yarn withdrawl and started a baby afghan to ease it. Now the shakes are going away and I'm feeling like myself again!

[Book Review] Dream Park by Larry Niven & Steven Barnes

What can you say about this story within a story. Even now, thirty-five years after it was published I find it a novel idea. Yes yes, it was tried in actuality and failed some years back and they even made a tabletop (I still can't quite grasp that I need to add 'tabletop' to make sure you know what I mean) roleplaying game out this novel (or series of novels).

Hyper Extending Myself and Fibre withdrawl

I complete patterns faster that I'm not making for anyone. I started an afghan because I had the perfect yarn for it, and all my other projects fell to the wayside. I sped along making the afghan, it was like a compulsion. I finished the afghan, put it away and went back to my other projects, like nothing had happened.

Shortly after that I injured my arm in kickboxing class.

[Movie Review] Dirty Harry III: The Enforcer (1976) 3 Stars

Clint Eastwood, Tyne Daly, John Mitchum,

On the 40th anniversary of this movie, I gave it a whirl. Clint Eastwood is doing his thing and Tyne Daly, who went on to Cagney & Lacey fame, was quite good. The rest of the cast was hit and miss from well done stereotypes to half-assed acting. It's really in the main villains where it fails. They're weak and one dimensional.

HOWEVER THERE IS NO GAME TOMORROW BEING A HOLIDAY. BUT SINCE THE STORE IS OPEN I SHOULD BE THERE ALL DAY WITH PROBABLE BOARD GAMES.

This time we had a steak, chicken, mushroom, & extra cheese pizza. It was gone in 15 minutes. The Player for Jacko took the last slice without dicing for it, but due tho his alighnment he is not penalized with an Honor point.

This is the report from two week's back. I skipped last week due to coming down from a game convention, I had to chill-out from gaming. Again I forgot the type of pizza we had.

Former players who opted out for game reasons to are invited reappear next session to role-play NPCs in the current City situation. I have some tasks for you to do for this style of play.

Yarning: Tools of the trade

My current favourite knitting needles: Short tipped interchangeable needles from Knitpicks, they are portable, and easy to use for small projects.

I also like the regular length interchangeable needles from Knitpicks. I've had my set for 8 years now and they're only just starting to strip and need replacing.

I find that straight needles with the nub at the end poke me while I'm knitting. I have a friend who uses the long needles and sticks one under her arm and knits freely with the other. I've tried knitting that way, but it felt too awkward and bulky.
