Second train trip was much quieter, for the most part. I will always be an awkward thing but you know, I’ll take my normal verbal oddity over train crashes and traveling backwards for two hours.

A shawl is a socially acceptable blanket. Why wouldn’t you want a socially acceptable blanket?

A different weekly update

I’m currently at my parents’ house. I take the Amtrak down here when I come.

I was in a train derailment/accident involving a tractor trailer in the way down yesterday. By the grace of God absolutely no one was injured. 
However it made for a long, complicated confusing trip and I spent today wearing silly turkey hats and baking pies.

Normal production will return on Monday when I get back home.

October is a weird month. Bright days don’t always translate that way on film. Highs of 80 mean it’ll be 80 for approximately 10 minutes.

It’s Thanksgiving and while I remembered this year it’s just me. So turkey sandwiches it is.

Venus went into retrograde

Freya is standing on the edge of my awareness 
This retrograde hits Aries, Scorpio, and Taurus hardest, which are my three most dominant signs in my chart. And the three signs Freya, in relation to me, likes to lurk in.

Which in the short term basically means I go back to beauty rituals and ritual showers.

Buttoned fingerless gloves. Made with superwash wool so a trip through the washer won’t felt them, these mitts have a functional button hole so the long cuffs can be folded. They feature a second mirrored button hole if you would like to add your own favorite button.

This style of mitt can be commissioned with up to three buttons per mitt and in a variety of colors and fibers. Mitts with additional buttons may not be able to have the folding cuff.

Buttoned cuffed mitts are $30 in the superwash.  Ask for pricing for other fibers.

There is something at work in my soul, which I do not understand.
-M. Shelley

I’m not great with copy though I have the ability to be poetic if necessary. Romantic even when pushed far enough. 
@tinyhousenerd is releasing a seasonal box in time for Samhain/Halloween. You can’t have my crow...but you may be able to take home something off my needles.

Welcome to October. Welcome to fall.

Welcome to my lungs trying to shut down.

The top photo is when I had pneumonia this past December, when I tried to pretend that the cough tearing me apart was completely normal. I walked out of that visit with steroids, an inhaler and a terrified resident (no lower lung sounds isn’t a normal presentation). One of the old wives remedies I swear by is black tea with a good sized shot of Jack. I don’t know why it works but it does when my inhaler doesn’t.

I woke up this morning with ‘that’ ache. 
Welcome to fall. It might be a Jack year.

The completely not glamorous blocking shot.

I leave the ends on but woven in until dry so they sit better. It does seem to make a difference.

They’re also tied together in pairs by best fit. Gauge always shifts a little so I matched them by best fit as to avoid blocking gymnastics.

If you’ve ever wondered why it’s Horrifknits instead of Rieshaw Knits, this is why.

I’ve been a mixed topic blogger for close to a decade. I took a year or so off and I’m just getting back into the process again.

I just finished (literally. Just cast off the last thumb) all the mitts for my multipiece project. I’ll do the first round of finishing and blocking tomorrow.

Then it’ll go back to projects other than production work.

The #mitts are available for purchase but the lighting is the point here 🐏🐏
I took this photo as late as I could this morning before I left and while I could adjust it more than I did, it was dark enough to skew the colors.

This pair is only on the page until Saturday. They’ve been listed for close to a year and it’s time to pull them if they don’t sell.
