Wow, the Sierpinski shawl got much more of a response than I was expecting. Now I’m half afraid to post any more knitting stuff because it seems unlikely that it will be nearly that popular.
I’ve started making a pineapple bag. I want mine to be smaller than the example in the pattern, so I’ve cast on enough stitches for 12 pattern repeats instead of 20. I’m not sure if the beads are visible in the picture.

Trigger Warning: Knitting
Hello, internet. It seems like I haven’t posted anything in weeks and months. This is because I’ve been ignoring the computer and knitting, an activity which I would describe as massively out of character. I haven’t wanted to say anything about it, because there’s almost nothing I hate more than trying to learn a new skill in public. And I’m awfully ambivalent about knitting itself, with its connotations of both granny and hipster.

It’s funny, I’ve been drinking my coffee black for something like twenty years now (gosh, has it been so long…?) but my darkest secret is that I’m just about the squarest and least-way-out-there person it’s possible to imagine.
Of course, this being the internet, you have absolutely no way of knowing if I’m telling the truth about myself, my coffee-drinking habits, or anything else.
