I'm really shy, so please be patient. I like posting about weird stuff too, so be on the lookout for that!

Working on the bootie/slipper sole, it's kinda fun. The *whole thing* is done with short rows.
Also, even as an experienced knitter, sometime I'll pick up my work and forget which side the working yarn is meant to be on 😂 Particularly if I'm doing short rows. #knitting
26 rows remaining.
If my head ain’t gonna be on straight, this beats staring absently at a wall.
Section five complete, two rows into section six. For future note to myself: if I’m going to try to make a color gradient in the beads, I may have to use more intense colors next time. 😬😬😬 This feels like something *I* will know is there, and no other soul outside of the people reading this caption

Fediverse, I has resource needs that I hope you can help with. I'm looking for books, websites, zines, etc about working together, as in cooperation-related social skills. This can be geared towards any age group, but I'd like it to be very community-building, working together, focused. I can find a lot on businessy business business crap, which is not necessarily unuseful, buuuut not really what I'm going for. plz&thx 💚
Beauty and hair
Honestly a lot of things weren't talked to me about grooming. Like I think when I was 16 a cousin took me to a spa or something in the city and had them wax my eyebrows. I had never realized it was something you needed to do. But I'm glad she went about telling me that way as opposed to one time I was swimming and got an "ewwww, shave your pits" about having a small amount of pit hair (from a boy who certainly had pit hair.)
Beauty and hair
I've got some nair on my face right now.
For arm/leg hair on me is fairly light and thin so I've never shaved my arms, and back when I cared a lot about shaving my legs I could still go a long time without doing it.
The face... I notice the hair but idk if other people do. It makes me self-conscious so I want to fry this shit off my face.
