You’re Lolita!
by Vladimir Nabokov
Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with
sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every
way, though you admit that this probably isn’t the best and you’re not sure what causes
this desire. Nonetheless, you’ve done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and
probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real.
Please stay away from children.

Your result for The hardcore SCA Test…

The Lord or Lady

You really enjoy the SCA and like to go to events when you can. However it doesn’t take over you life or anything. You’ve probably got an AOA or will have one soon. Sometimes folks wonder where you’ve been when you make it back to a meeting or event.

Your result for Which of the “Big Five” personality traits best represents you?…


Your strongest “Big Five” is Openness!

Openness is a general appreciation for art, emotion, adventure, unusual ideas, imagination, curiosity, and variety of experience. This trait distinguishes imaginative people from down-to-earth, conventional people. People who are open to experience are intellectually curious, appreciative of art, and sensitive to beauty. They tend to be, compared to closed people, more creative and more aware of their feelings. They are more likely to hold unconventional beliefs.

People with low scores on openness tend to have more conventional, traditional interests. They prefer the plain, straightforward, and obvious over the complex, ambiguous, and subtle. They may regard the arts and sciences with suspicion, regarding these endeavors as abstruse or of no practical use. Closed people prefer familiarity over novelty. They are conservative and resistant to change.

Is it just me, or…

…is the new Knitty rather shorter of patterns than usual?

I'm rather liking the cover pattern, 'Shetland Shortie', though.

Happy New Year!!

I’d hoped to have a stash report all ready for you to ring in the new year, but I didn’t exactly manage it…

So I figured I’d be better off just wishing everyone a very happy new year, and reminding you not to overdo the resolutions.

And Sunday.


And Monday.



Newsflash: Otters holding hands!

I’m not normally one to go mad over videos, but this one is fab:


Be sure to stick around for the last 30 seconds or so; that’s the best bit!
