delirium happy
I am in a distinctly odd sort of mood today, and I'm not really sure why. Nor am I sure I can properly describe it. I guess that "detached" might be the right word. Maybe "displaced". Very slightly out of phase with reality (and not in the crappy science fiction way where they pass seamlessly through all solid matter except for the floor).

I've tried eating various different food groups. I've made sure I'm well hydrated. I've walked around a bit, and I've even gone and done something that doesn't involve a computer for a while. No help.

I think possibly I'm feeling hyper but with nothing to direct my energies at, so they're just sort of bubbling up inside my head making pretty swirly patterns on my brain. I feel vaguely better now that I've started typing this and have a feeling of actually doing something, though possibly that will go away once I've finished writing this.

I need something to dooooooo.

Give it a try, I'm sure you'll be able to get some basic scarf-knitting going given some decent pictures showing how to cast on and so on. I unforgot how to knit after maybe 15 years with the help of Googlepedia.

After about a scarf's worth you'll probably work out how to keep the tension sane and not drop/gain too many stitches, at which point you can start again and make something vaguely non-frustrating.

Actual 1337 knitting 5k|11z are harder, but you can happily churn out Dr Who scarfs in the mean time.
