Seraphinianus

The other day I read the Codex Seraphinianus. It was mesmerizing. I made the decision that the moment I start making a decent salary, I will take $1,000 of that salary and spend it on a first edition of the book. For now, I will have to resort to reading it on the internet.

And perhaps knitting myself a few pairs of mittens.

I know it’s the recession, and I’m a poor grad student with no money who just spent thousands of dollars on a big trip and a laptop and will soon be shelling out major bucks for new teeth, but I think I’m going to buy these shoes. The only thing holding me back is that I don’t know which size to buy. They’re made by these ladies in Africa and they look super comfy. This summer I had a crazy time trying to find comfortable flat sandals to wear during day-long walks in Europe (I ended up finding them a few days before the end of the trip), so my brain is still wired to obsess over sandals. You see, if I buy these, I am doing myself a favour because then I will have two pairs of fashionable flats to wear in the heat next summer. I’m just planning ahead.

These images are quite dreamy, but also comical because it looks like the lady on the left has a giant fleshy cyst on her head which she is riding, James-and-the-giant-peach-style toward Manhattan and all the potential friends therein.

I’ve been in Europe for 3 weeks and I just got back. I’ve had another insane month but I wanted to check in a little bit. This isn’t fibre-related but they are animal- producing- fibre- related: here are some instructions for making rice balls look like sheep!

Rowan Lima

Wanted to throw this one out there in case there is a knit blogger on earth who doesn’t read brooklyn tweed. Rowan Lima is constructed as i-cord, taming alpaca fibres and, I imagine, making for some interesting texture. Will I restrain my tight-fistedness enough to buy a ball… or two? Only time will tell.

Retrofit your mitts!

I am a little late on this one, but I’ve only now caught up with all my blog reading! Here is a great suggestion on how to retrofit your mitts! I’ll have to try this on my current mittens, as they are cold enough to freeze your Winnebago.
