This is one of those posts where I’m basically filling for time since I have had to declare blogruptcy after a couple weeks of being too busy to get ahead on my writing schedule.
So, here’s a picture of what I’ve been doing with some of my free time over the past couple weeks.
I picked up knitting because Rachael started doing it as a way to help manage general anxiety about the state of the world, and she suggested it to me as a nice pastime that also has the added benefit of allowing you to actually have something to show for it afterwards. She also wanted to knit a brain cap for the March for Science coming up in about a month or so, and when she saw the instructions said she needed seventeen feet of I-cord, she turned to me and said, “You would really enjoy knitting if you got into it, Jason.”
After about a week of struggling to understand the basic concept (I wanted to learn how to do it left handed, which added a further layer of complication to everything), I finally figured out the basics and got to it. Lo and behold, I’ve knitted nearly seventeen feet of I-cord and have begun knitting the cap as well. Go me.
