alexseanchai: Blue and purple lightning (Default)

So I bought three small skeins of yarn for a prayer shawl. Bulky acrylic, variegated blues, fuzzy texture. And then I thought, hm, that doesn't really seem like it's going to be enough yarn; I'll go get some more. And then I got that home and discovered that though it is indeed bulky acrylic, it's variegated blues and blacks, and it's smooth texture, and not the same thing at all. Also, smaller skeins.

So now I have 210yd of the fuzzy blues and 180yd of the smooth blue-blacks, and indeed 210yd is not enough to make a shawl out of. Not even a shawlette, Ravelry assures me. And I'm totally blanking on what I could do that 180yd or 210yd of bulky yarn is enough for.

Help? Thanks.

Yay, it's Friday again! That means a weekend is upon us. And weekends mean time to play with prompts!

If you've got ideas you'd like to share, leave them as comments to this post. If you're looking for ideas to play with, look at the prompts left here and see what strikes your fancy. With a dollop of luck, the prompts left and the prompts sought will give someone's muse some inspiration and we'll have a nifty new fanwork to adore. :-)

Prompts need a few bits of information: Character(s)/pairing, universe prompt.
Example? Okay, let's try this: Chris & any, any, I never back down and I love a good challenge.

If none of the ideas here give your muse a swift kick, there are lots of prompts at our Del.icio.us archive. Like, really. Lots. (Which means moving them somewhere else is going to be a pain...)

Prompt away!

  • Chris & any, any, I never back down and I love a good challenge.
  • Josiah, any, the night the lightning struck the church
  • Josiah, any, the hell of hail on his poor church's roof . . .
  • Vin, any, the thunder was too loud for talk, so they spoke in actions.
  • any, watching Chris and Vin in the flashes of lightning

The Not Ready for Primetime Gift Exchange went live today and there's a lovely crossover story with “Wynonna Earp” that a kind person wrote for me. It’s also C/E which many of you will love, so head over and read “A Dying Man” on AO3! (FYI – you don’t have to know anything about “Wynonna Earp” to appreciate the story, and the lovely take on Ezra’s past!)
