I need some constructive criticism, yo!
I think the main problem is that I don't have many close friends who are better than (or equivalent to) me at the things I care about. Clearly I need to be more social and actually talk to people. (I'd really rather just hang out in my room and make stuff.)
I can crit myself (though I'm not sure how constructive it is), but it's got less impact when it comes from my own brain - plus it's easier to forget. Self: go socialize with interesting people and stop being a jerk!
On another note, I finished a couple nice knitted things (plus some embroidered stuff from last term!) that I need to take nice pictures of, but I keep sleeping till 2pm (notice how it's 3am right now?) and miss the good light. I guess I could go outside, but it's COLD. And I don't have a backyard.
Do any embroiders have a good recommendation for a stitch guide? I want to get better at this! I'm thinking something along the lines of this site, but in book form.
Also, related to books, The Principles of Knitting is being re-released. Now, full disclosure, I don't actually know much (anything) about this book, but the title makes me really excited for it! I hope I get a co-op job so I can buy it without having to wait until it comes out in paperback. (If it ever does. Damn you, Loop-d-Loop, and your delicious hardcover patterns!)
