swamp_ophelia Oh you know just hanging out with the metal heads for #opeth - my first ever metal gig with Sean after 16 years of not going with him. I like this band. I like the lead singer's voice. They're Swedish. I think it's gonna be good. But all these metal heads make for a different sort of experience! 1d

  •   pinkcatknits Is this the first time you've knit with Hawthorne? I'd like to know your thoughts. 2d
  •   swamp_ophelia Tis my first time @pinkcatknits - so far I really like the feel and sheen. Keen to get into the leg part to get a really good look at stitch definition. 2d
  •   miradesigns I love them already. ️ 1d
  •   swamp_ophelia @miradesigns quite a manly colourway. 1d
  •   miradesigns Good sock coloring period. 🏼 1d

swamp_ophelia My sweet little dolly is finished. She is a first birthday gift for the lovely baby girl my sister and her family fostered a year ago. I can't wait to give her to her. {pattern is Poppy by @ysolda } 2d
  •   tessafloodygirl Gorgeous! 2d
  •   trdajara Absolute joy!! Well done!! Was is good to make? 2d

  •   swamp_ophelia @anyresemblance thanks! That's validation for me. I was hoping I got it right. 2d

swamp_ophelia I *had* to go to a wool shop at lunch time (for a gift). This pretty Misti Alpaca spoke to me (ie this wasn't the gift). It's called French Wine. How apt. 5d
  •   swamp_ophelia @juliskamarie ah it was yours I saw recently! I was trying to think where I saw someone working with it! 5d
  •   juliskamarie Heehee, yup! That's currently my favourite project! 5d
  •   trdajara What will it be? 5d
  •   swamp_ophelia @trdajara socks! 5d
  •   swamp_ophelia @miradesigns I looked it up on ravelry and it makes gently striped socks. It'll be lovely. I was buying a team farewell gift for a departing colleague who is a knitter. 5d
  •   miradesigns Very thoughtful. I love the colors. ️ 5d
  •   trdajara Wooooooo 5d
  •   chezlouielouie I'm glad. I saw nothing quite so lovely when I was there (under duress) last week and thought you'd snapped up something I'd accidentally passed over!! 4d

swamp_ophelia Tomorrow when Australians wake up Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukamaran will be dead. And what will have been achieved? I will not watch the news. #IStandForMercy 6d
  •   eatshootblog I'm extremely upset about the executions and I'm horrified that so many of my fellow Australians are baying for blood. 6d
  •   swamp_ophelia @eatshootblog I've made the mistake of reading the comments around the place. It has shocked me. 6d
  •   swamp_ophelia @linda_uzu it's a question I'm asking too. Why are we so affected? Perhaps it's because of their families. And the callousness of it all. And because these two men are a sign of hope and killing hope is just brutal. 6d
  •   missalisonregrets But by the same token @swamp_ophelia I've just stood amongst 500, who peacefully begged for Mercy. I'll be up at 3am (midnight in Indonesia) praying and hoping that Andrew and Myuran know they are not alone, and hoping for a miracle. 6d
  •   swamp_ophelia That's so important @missalisonregrets - a stand that's more tangible than sitting in my lounge room avoiding the news. 6d
  •   ascasewwen I find it sickening and heartbreaking too, I can't watch the news about it, seeing the families' anguish is too much. To me it looks like it's less to do with the men and more to do with Indonesia making a point. Either way, it's inhuman, cruel to the people who love these men and an utter waste given they've been doing good in the prison. So so awful. 6d
  •   linda_uzu Maybe you're right Helen. My heart breaks for their families. One mistake and they're condemned. I can barely articulate how I feel. 6d
