I have an FO! I have some other knitting progress as well. I finished my Elegant Gauntlets just in time for it get cold. I’m hanging out at +Rebecca Johnson’s this evening. We’re knitting. I just started the heel flap on a second sock of the pair.

I’ve been thinking a lot about bullying lately. I think any discussion of bullying in the SCA needs to include the topic of fear. When someone is a bully they are afraid and use bullying as a way to gain power/autonomy/agency they perceive they are lacking. When someone perceives they are being bullied, when clearly that is not the intention of those being accused of being the bully, that person is fearful of having their power/autonomy/agency taken away. Someone who is actually the victim of a bully has had their power/autonomy/agency taken away and has the right to be afraid.

I made this post public because I want to participate in dispelling fear and help everyone to feel that the SCA is a safe place. The only way we can do that is bring the fear into the light of open dialogue.

Today’s knitting progress has been casting on and starting the ribbing on a Sockhead Hat. Once I get much better at doing my new job there will be times that I’ll need some simple knitting to keep my hand busy. I always have a yummy vanilla sock going but I wanted an even simpler project that I can leave at the the office. I put together a notions kit (scissors, stitch markers, tape measure, darning needle, nail file, etc..) and have it and the project in a one of my many project bags. I’m also going to leave one of my old iPad Mini’s at the office so I’ll have access to all my knitting patterns. This way if I’m covered if I ever need to run out the door without what I need to keep me sane.

I'm going to be teaching spinning and other classes at Conversational Threads in Emmaus. More info on this to come when I have time to write a longer post.

I was just looking at my Instagram feed when an ad for a new ABC show called The Good Dr came up. It’s about an autistic savant Dr. OMG this is going to make my job and the job of every clinician who works with children (and adults) who are on the spectrum so much harder. This show is going set high expectations that 99.9% of ASD kids just can’t meet. It’s going to give false hope to so many parents that their child could be like the guy on TV. Yes there are savants in the world but they are so very rare. Will ABC do anything to help support the millions of people who are on the spectrum but aren’t savants? Some how I doubt it. I posted a comment saying shame of ABC for putting a show like this on the air.

I made knitting and spinning progress today. While walking around the Lehigh Valley Fiber Fest I almost filled my spindle. It was about half full when I started. Afterwards, while hanging out at +Rebecca Johnson’s home I finished a sock and cast on its mate.

In the warmer months I typically wear plain cotton store bought socks. I just started working with a new family and mom asks that everyone take their shoes off when the come into the house. The kiddo is really into color. What am I to do? I went through all my sock WIP's and have pulled all the colors that say summer to me out of the basket of holding. I may have also cast on a new yummy (as opposed to plain) vanilla sock because all the others in this shot require me to follow a pattern.

Yesterday I finished the leg portion of my Everything Afterthought socks. I need a chunk of uninterrupted time and no headache (have had a migraine on and off for a few days). This morning before getting ready for work I joined the rolls and got 1 repeat of the heel flap rows done on the 2nd in the pair of my Jelly Roll socks. The cat book is important but I have to get ready for work. So, more on that later.
