nature wool

Thanks for your support regarding the sleeve mishap, guys! Linn: yes, the armhole is as it should be, so there seems to be no mistakes in the front and back patterns.

After sitting around and whining about my sleeve at the SnB meeting at Marias Garn yesterday, I feel better about it today. For three reasons:
1) bad moods never sticks with me, after a bit of a moan I leave them behind
2) I bought some new yarn for the fisherman's jumper, I really want to knit someting with good, honest wool for a change
3) I swatched some Araucania Nature Wool for a project I've been longing to do for ages

And there really is a fourth reason, too: I remembered that knitting is something I do for fun. As soon as it annoys me I need to bring some enjoyment into it again. A good recipe for that is to put the annoying bits to the side for a while and do something else.

That sure is a pretty yarn. And it's wool.

There was a very real perception that bi-racial was much worse for the white than it was for the person of color. The liberal culture, which was designed and promoted with the god's tools to achieve their Apocalyptic goals, screamed racism when there was a very reasonable explanation for this reality::::
In this white punishment known as the United States the person of color has already adopted the disfavors/temptations intended for another race. But by associating/mating with a person of color the white is newly adopting the disfavors of another culture.
And this is the reason why people of color are not welcome in the United States. The gods control everything:::The perception they want to create, the thoughts they want you to have.
People of color can't recover from absorbing the temptations from two cultures. And why they become more and more like so many blacks in America:::Veterans at absorbing the temptations of two cultures.
To further illustrate this is why California's educational system/funding was ranked #1 when California was white:::Education being the basis of the affluent economic system. Now even public higher education has become unaffordable.

The gods placed us all into our own corners of the globe. As such for thousands of years we spent time and reproduced with out own kind.
This is why mobilty/travel, biracial unions/offspring and partaking of other cultures is a sin::::
Each has it's own elements of disfavor, and by experiencing other cultures you are being exposed to these disfavors, which if people may adopt will make their state even worse than prior.
The United States has been considered a "melting pot" where rejects from around the world were sent when kicked out of their motherland.
Remember, this concept of cultural diversity is an element of the liberal platform the gods used to promote societal decay, revealed on the map with the "beast" that is the SanFranciscoBayArea and the spread of social deterioration that spread to the rest of the country and eventually to the entire globe.

As with so many things in this life "less is more". Sex is one of those things. They used the liberal age to promote casual "free" sex intentionally::Combined with "women's lib" and their initiation into the "trenches" of the workplace as well as other issues like alcohol consumption the people experienced a mass masculinization of the females.
The gods use sex as temptation. This is why the most disfavored among us are preoccupied with it. While some may feel being well-endowed is a sign of favor the truth is just the opposite. And often the result is misogyny, a belittling of the favored gender, and stagnation of the people as a whole.
Less is more. When young women experience passing thoughts which say you're doing something wrong instead of fighting or dismissing the thought you should heed the warning. Sadly in today's world too many experience prolonged periods of promiscuity in their lives, whereas if married by 15 like throughout human history this disfavor was avoided.
Don't forget:::It is children who ascend into heaven, and the absence of sexual activity is one reason. Their general innocence is another, which should help you see the destructive nature of adult life in today's society.

Ronald Reagan spent the communist block into submission with defense buildup, and in the process increased the National debt from $1 trillion in 1980 to $6 trillion when he left office.
W charged both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to the national debt, honest numbers to come.
The gods used W to initiate the "Great Recession" with deliberate legislation/regulation changes, allowing the sub-prime fiasco and corporate irresponsibility/criminal behavior which led to the multi-trillion dollar stimulous package, pocketted by Republican friends and donors::::$5 trillion charged to the National credit card.
This corruption is one element of evil in the party of good. War mongering is another.
Damned if you do, Damned if you don't::::With the Democrats you subscribe to social decay via liberlism, which WILL lead to the Apocalypse. Republicans are being used by the gods to bankrupt the United States, ultimately motivating people to the point of "desperation prayer" once anarchy presides::::Punishment designed to correct your behavior.

The gods behave monsterously in the course of managing Planet Earth but they demand people be good.
Not only is doing the right things important (praying, attoning for your sins, thinking the right way:::accepting humility, modesty, vulnerability), so is avoiding the wrong things important as well:::"Go and sin no more".

Sounds like an excellent way to tackle things. :-) Enjoy the wool! (låter nästan som ett slagord...) Oh, and I can recomment the bumble cat toy if you're looking for a quick knit, both the humans and the cats in this household find it endlessly amusing...

I must remember your reasoning when I'm getting all frazzled with stuff too!

Now you are talking! Look at my WIP list... I like your reasoning.

Väldigt fint ULLgarn!
I have been abandoning all my recent project at the armpits... It seems to be impossible to gets past that tricky point. Hope you will find new inspiration and fun.

Good to hear that you are over the disappointment. I am not pleased with my cardigan I was trying to improve yesterday either. There are several things that did not turn out right. Far too big, the sleeves much too long and it was very hard to make them fit the armholes. Then I did not manage to place the buttonholes evenly. This is just my second Rowan-project so I guess it is nothing to be ashamed about. The Rowan-yarns are so expensive and the pictures in their patternbooks looks so nice. I hope I learned something and am able to resist buying yarn and patternbooks from them for some time and go back to wool or cotton-knitting like you. I will send you a link with the picture of how it was supposed to look to your mailadress.
Best wishes/Gunilla
