It's another Thursday, and another week where I have decided to take part in Three on Thursday. Todays list are things with no relation to one another, but there are three of them, and so here we go.
1. Something I will probably never knit = a coat/full-length sweater. For example, something like this pattern:
It's pretty, the yarn used is bulky, but nonetheless, it would take me forever, and I would be unlikely to wear it more than once a year, if that. Life is too short, and there are soooo many other things I would like to knit!
2. Something I will likely never subscribe to = Patreon accounts. I know that a lot of podcasters in all areas (aka not just fiber-related) have Patreon accounts that provide them with additional funding in exchange for additional content. Which is fine, and I understand that podcasts - be they video or audio - take a lot of time, work, and effort. But the whole idea just frankly bugs me. I guess I'm just not a fan of having to pay more for extra content about most topics. There are so few things that are "free" and that I actually enjoy, it kind of annoys me to then also pay something so that someone can show me something else they are making, where they went on vacation, etc. It's just not for me. And I felt this way before our funds were incredibly tight, so it's not just that I can't justify it at the moment.
3. Something I really want to do = get more plants and have them grow successfully. I showed you these last year, and do you know not a single one has survived?? "Get succulents, they said; it will be easy, they need almost no care." I guess *they* were wrong in my case.
Right before Christmas, I did buy a tiny poinsettia that's hanging in, as well as a new Christmas cactus, and they joined my two plants whose names escape me that the lady at the plant place told me don't need a lot of sunlight. So far, they are all doing OK, even if they are not wildly thriving. I used to grow wonderful violets, but sadly, there is no sunny place I can put them where the Koodle can't get them. The place above in the photo is not sunny enough, and he has knocked down any I've tried to put anywhere else, so many times that they gave up the ghost. But I'm hoping to find some that will survive, because I do love having house plants.
