On Top Of Spaghetti

I'd usually have cheese.

Very tired today after staying up too late last night reading A Bend in the Yellow River. Southpark last night was very funny, too.

I have found a very cheap source of wool for my thneed. I went to the op-shop and got two hand-knitted jerseys for $2, unravelled them and rewound the wool up into balls. It's recycling, but it kind of made me feel guilty, unravelling all those hours and hours of work someone did!

(note - unravelling a jersey is a guilty sensory pleasure as well. Each stitch seperates out with just the right degree of tension and ease. It reminds me a bit of popping fresh peas out of their pods.)

I wish I had tools, then I could make things in the garage. And also, I wish I had wood to work with. And the patience and skill required. The slab of kauri I found at the tip is very cool, but the wood is so hard and dense that it is extreeeeemely slow going with the sandpaper.

Must go shower to see if that wakes me up...
