C3A: *Rocks back and forth*

The first big action scene in this chapter left me feeling queasy. I was glad they only implied the violence mostly but it left me a bit speechless .

The title of the chapter should've been an indication of what was to come.

It seemed like both Estri and Dellin were broken a bit in this chapter. The interaction between the two for the rest of the chapter was a total 180 of how it was originally.

Dellin is now arrogant and demanding, while Estri is humble and needy.

C2A: Sweet Chaldra of Mine.

This chapter gave us some deeper insight into the culture of Astria. I enjoyed learning more about the Well and the role of the women associated with the well.

There were some interesting scenes where we get to see Estri's skills at work.

There's underlying politics in everything, I find myself getting lost in the meaning 'below' the meaning.

Still unsure about the Chaldra, is it a chastity belt? Is it just a chain they wear to dictate their social status? Is it an indication of destiny?

Knitting Pattern: The Hateful knit!

I haven't seen The Hateful Eight yet but I did see enough screenshots to notice the awesome knitwear on the characters.

This is a start of a multi-part series from the Hateful Eight I'm hoping.

This pattern is for Samuel L Jackson's character Major Marquis Warren, he wears a long manly scarf that wraps around so many times!

I wasn't really sure what to call this scarf pattern....The Hateful Knit...The Scarf-ful Eight...The Handknit weight?

Crochet Pattern: Do cowls stay awake all night?

I've been hunkered down this week, enjoying the snow and lots of knitting and crocheting.

I had a ball of Loops and Threads Impeccable, in a pretty pastel multi colourway. It is a soft yarn that goes thick and thin, making it really interesting visually.

I wanted to make something loose and airy yet still soft and warm, so I grabbed a crochet hook and had a go.

I came out with a lovely, loose and soft cowl that looks like superkid icecream!

It's 3 o'clock, do you know where your fiber is?

This past week I've started/worked on a pair of mittens, a blanket, 2 hats, and 3 cowls.

What do I have from all that work?
1 hat and 2 cowls.

I think Knitting/Crocheting is the only craft that you can spend hours on and end up with nothing at the end. This phenomenon isn't from extremely slow stitching, but from my tendency to rip things out when they aren't perfect.

C1A: There's no high-loveseat?

I finally started reading High Couch of Silistra again, deciding to re-read chapter one so I could re-acquaint myself with the story and characters.

We immediately meet Estri, an extremely high-class courtesan/geisha type figure.

I'm enjoying the language so far, the linguistics of it seem very elvish to me. The words are flowy, Estri..Silistra..Astria. It's very sensual.

Knitting: Thrum-Thr-Thrum-Thrum-Thrums!

Ever since I learned to knit I've wanted a pair of Thrummed Mitts, they're soft, warm and look adorable. This year I decided finally to make myself a pair (Only took 8 years...).

I started a pair using pattern from Ravelry.

Knitting Pattern: Bobble Hat

I received a set of the new Knitpicks Short tipped Interchangeable circular needles for christmas and wanted to test them out pronto!

I tried a couple patterns before deciding I'd just make my own. It's my first design I've posted on . I only used 1 circular needle in this pattern, but you can use 4 dpns or 2 circulars,as long as you join it.

I call it the Stripey Bobble Hat!

C10A: Punner? I don't even know her! [SPOILERS]

After procrastinating for a few months I finally finished reading Callahan's Lady. Lots of spoilers ahead!

I was enjoying the ruse the Professor and Sherry had going, it had me giggling a few times, imagining Sherry waddling around with a pillow under her shirt.

I had the hardest time understanding Tony Donuts dialogue, so I think I only got a vague gist of what he was trying to say in every conversation.

I really enjoyed when they were scamming Mrs. Willoughby and they both grew a conscience because they liked her so much.

Glitter Force Episode 1 : He's Mighty Mighty!

Sparkles and schoolgirl outfits, need I say more? This caught my eye on Netflix and I'm not disappointed so far.

The show starts out with the shortest origin story I've ever seen (Thank you!). Girl has dreams of becoming a magical girl, girl becomes magical girl and fights. Nice and easy!

So far I'm enjoying the animation (so much pink and glitter!!) and the fairy-tale influences.

My favourite line was when the Wolf summoned the giant house ."He's mighty mighty.' If this kind of humour continues I'll be hooked.
