The Gothic socks are progressing, albeit a bit slower than I’d like but that’s what happens when you have more hobbies than you do time. I’ve just finished the last repeat of the pattern before the heel so hopefully next week will see that started.
The stripy socks are also progressing, quite well actually. We had a game night on Monday so those were pulled out and I managed to get most of the heels done while laughing and being silly.
Here we have the components for the Rangers of the North flag. I need to sit down and figure out exactly how I’m going to sew the star to the green and blue field.
And here’s the learning curve. I first tried a Superwash Merino when I sat down this week and that was nothing but frustration as it drafted apart every time I tried to let it wind on. So I dug through the stash and found a merino / silk blend and managed to do a bit better. I suspect my brain was simply not in the right place to fully focus. The picture isn’t great, there’s a teal, a deep purple, and a brilliant blue in the fiber but I couldn’t get the right angle to pull the colors true.
Speaking of brain not in the right place … here’s the reason why. Today I go to court and hopefully this afternoon I will be divorced again. Really, really trying to focus on it being the right thing and how good Jon is to and for me rather than this being my second divorce and thus my second failed marriage.
Edit: Court done, divorce granted.
Jacaranda: A Novella of the Clockwork Century by Cherie Priest. This is the book that was the reason I purchased the Subterranean Press Story Bundle as Cherie Priest is one of my favorite authors and this is a little return to a fantastic alternate history world she’s created. The story is just beginning but I’m very much caught up in it.
