If you know me, you know i love cables, passionately. One of my first ever hats (well, my third) was a cabled chemo cap. Ever since then, I've just loved cables. I sometimes knit cable swatches just for fun, because they just look really cool.
Anyways, now, I've never knitted full sweater yet. Ever. And now, I'm in the processes. Lovely. It's got mass cables! Even better! It's pattern 26 from Rebecca #27, the green cabled sweater pictured with the Apricot Jacket? You know?
I'm only doing a sleeve at the moment, it's just plain stockinette, kind of boring, you don't want to see pictures till it's at least near the cap.
Now, Max did discover my, as you can see from the comments to the previous entry. He is a school friend. It made me realize that I'm very different in different worlds. That was probably why i didn't want anyone from school or home discovering my blog. Because that's the two parts of my life that I strive so hard to keep separte, mixing. Home and School, then the net.
School is where I am most free and happy, I have my friends, I have my security, I have shoulders to cry on, I have friends to share everything with. School is a place of comfort, and I really can't see myself not being there. Once Year 12 is over, that's the end. No more school. Ever again. I think I'm starting to understand what people mean when they say that these are the best years of my life.
Home is warm and cozy and risk-free, but it's still stressfull. At close glance, it could seem that it's because my friends are more important to me. It's not that, they are just a important, but in my other world. At home, you have your family. What have you got if you loose them? Blood is thicker than water.
Then the net. All these people that could be anyone, and you have to believe what they say. How can you proove anything against them? All these people that I talk to confidently, yet there is no way I'd be so confident or..."bright" if I met them in real life. People are so much more approachable when all you have is the written word, or the odd picture.
I even use different words in ym different worlds. Different tones and facial expressions. I'm constantly told that I'm very sarcastic, but that's only at school. That's that world.
I don't know..
Someone told me I was the biggest flirt they know.
I placed my first international net order today, with Pattern Works. For the Apricot Jacket. Fantasy Naturale by Plymouth Yarns. In the colour "Sage". I was torn between Celery, Sage, Mint, Grass and Green, and Sky or Taupe. Mostly greens. In the end, I just went with Sage because that's what first caught my attention. I hope it's nice!
It's gettig shipped to my Dad's place first, because that will save around $20 on shipping and all. Money down here is tight. But I dn't mind, because it makes us all really enjoy and look forward to things that some of my other friends just take for granted, you know?
So there you go, Max, this whole post wasn't just knitting. You were mentioned twice. I would share NEGATIVE thoughts about a certain Keith who did not stop touching me all assembly..*prod prod*"Monique, Monique! That guy said this..Hhahaha, he said that! HeheHE!"..I too, have ears, boy.
