So after several false starts, I managed to get past the second row. I had the same problem with my previous project.
I started with a seed stitch, also called moss stitch, for the edge and switched to stockinette stitch for the main body.
My previous project was all seed stitch. Stockinette stitch almost feels like cheating because of how easy it is to make the same stitch over and over again rather than flipping between knitting or purling on the fly. #knitting
I got some more knitting needles and yarn. I'm starting my next knit project. It shouldn't take me as long to complete. I'm going to knit some hand warmers. I'm not working off a set pattern, kind of playing it by ear but they're basically going to be squares sewed into a tube with a gap for my thumb. So hopefully they'll be too easy to mess up. #knitting
Finished knitting my first knit project. I just have to join the ends and it's done. #knitting
I randomly remembered that the Transformers series ran a poll where the fandom voted on a new transformers bot. and they chose a sword-wielding airplane-themed "female" autobot, named Windblade. and when the official comic came out, OF COURSE a bunch of non-transformers geek boys got REAL MAD that they made a female-led transformers comic.
anyway apparently they also put her in an animated cartoon, and she has a magical girl-style upgrade sequence:
Really, asking "what should replace Facebook" is putting things the wrong way around.
A more interesting way to ask the question is, "what did Facebook replace."
People used to build their own websites. People used to have blogs. People used USENET which was truly distributed and un-censorable.
Facebook and Google took the open internet and open standards and monetized and made everything crappy. Enough of that. Nothing should replace Facebook, it's done, stick a fork in it.
I'm feeling super on edge tonight. Customers seem extra annoying. I don't know what is going on. I should be riding the high of seeing Spider-Man and I am excited from seeing it but everything feels like too much. It's not quite a panic attack more like anxiety tremors, I guess. Just a couple more hours.
Just another south Texas trans Latina who writes short scifi/fantasy/surreal stories.
