Pinned toot

an ! 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 GΓΆrlitzer 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 ζ·±ι‚ƒζž—δΉ‹ε€–, 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

anyone know what this growth is? its in Portland, Oregon, and the tree was transplanted here in the last year or so

help

i have a one page pdf

i need 100 copies of that page in one file

how do i do this?

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.

it is TWENTY SEVEN degrees out, everything is coated in a layer of ice, it is actively snowing, and my apartment building is STILL running the sprinklers
or, at least, the sprinklers that are able to pop up through the snow and ice are running, idk about the short ones

my work from today. i learned to do a knitted patch to darn this sock, which is soooo much easier than the woven patches I've been doing before, and i made more progress on mending that quilt. 2/6 squares done. visible this time is another one of the holes in it

It's pretty clever that the common mutual aid slogan "give what you can, take what you need" is literally just a rephrasing of "from each according to their ability, to each according to their need" in microcosm

Just wondering.

period - 

i got ONE WEEK between the end of my last period and the beginning of this one

i hate it here

*transes my gender* can't talk, doing hot enby shit

i sewed the ends of the belt together to create a better strap for my . it's probably still a little small, but i hope it helps. and it'll be more secure than the braid i was using earlier

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 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
