an #introduction ! I'm an agender lesbian, I came over from tumblr, and my dream is to live on a sheep farm and make textiles! I love knitting, crochet, embroidery, spinning, everything 🐏🐏
Hey, I urgently need to move to #berlin, and my flat arrangement just fell through, so I'm looking for a room. Ideally:
- lease at least until July
- with Anmeldung
- near Görlitzer Park (Kreuzberg)
- with lovely people
But I literally need to move in within 10 days, so I'll take anything. LMK if you/someone you know is looking for a mostly quiet, mostly clean, mostly vegan flatmate.
note: i have no clue if its a *good* translation, and the English version of the book is chock full of made up words so this one probably will be too. I'm still on the cover
today i embarked on the (extremely foolhardy) undertaking of reading 深邃林之外, which is a Chinese translation of Beyond the Deepwoods, by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell. it was gifted to me several years ago while i was studying Mandarin and i never got around to reading it. by now i can only understand the occasional spoken word, and i can't read at all. so. im absolutely confident this will go extremely poorly
sorry no image description, idk what anything in this photo actually is
figured it out
Thought of the day / colonialism & violence
On this day in 1779, Captain James Cook was killed in Hawaii.
He'd annoyed the locals on two other trips, and this time around he tried to kidnap their ruling chief. He reached the beach, but the ruling chief sat on the ground and refused to move. An old man distracted the company with music while thousands of warriors gathered behind them.
Cook was knocked over, stabbed in the chest, then dragged up a hill & torn to pieces.

here's my thoughts on the belt I finished last night, as well as photos, and plans for my next project
i need a starting warp length of about 10 or 11 feet. this weaving goes fast and i have a RIDICULOUS amount of this rainbow yarn so I'll probably go for a 12 foot warp, just to be really really safe. I've been agonizing over where to wind such a warp in this apartment that doesn't really have 12 feet of walkable space anywhere. but, I was just outside and realized that the patio of this apartment building has a fence with little spikes sticking up every nine inches or so. it's definitely intended to be hostile architecture, but it's the PERFECT tool for this situation. I'll be using a technique shown in this video https://youtu.be/uWz-wD7Ql8g to shorten the part of the warp that i need to hold under tension, so i don't need to worry about not having 12 straight feet of space
confused, exhausted, traumatized, and crampy
