Of Bombs and Stars

As For The Stars...

Mother, prithee, tell will the stars come out to play?
Child, I pray you would you not seek such answers!
May I catch a cloud who will whisper the way?
To the land the stars all play!

No, my dear, my shining one,
This night no star's light will grace the sky;
Emptiness set moon and sun,
And has taught the stars to fly…

But Mother, why?
Perhaps they have only fallen, sleeping upon a hidden bed
Awaiting moon’s great sun burnt cry

Summoning them home from the land they fled…

Child, night and day, they bore our pain
The moon looked down and mourned us; the sun sorrowed at our dying plea
Until the Great Hand let loose their ties
As for the stars; they were each cast into the sea...

I've been in a writing mood, as of late. Granted, it's not my best work, but that last poetic line popped into my head while I was typing away at a science fiction storyline, and so I had to write a poem to fit it.
The Scarf is stockinette stitch, the yarn is just some I had left over from the many Jayne hats. I thought the bomb turned out pretty cute.

New Post

The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things. I would go on, but sadly, that is the only remnant I've managed to recall, and this paragraph has so little to do with walrus' and carpenters.
I'm changing my name, cheeky wee knittee has evolved into a name I find more fitting of my knitting persona, Mindless Knitter. Most often the knitting I resort to is mindless, granted, when I'm in the mood, I'll write and knit my own patterns and momentarily qualify as a knitter, but I generally stick to that which is mindless.

I've managed to knit two Browncoat logo beanies, one brown, and one black. I knit the green triangle patch with yellow stripes separately; it turned out well. Especially since it was my first go at knitting a triangle, and I just knit it based on my knowledge of stitches.
As for the star in the center, I wasn't crazy enough to attempt leaving that to knitting, for I happened upon the perfect sized star iron-on patches. These hats are the first actual knitting project that I've worked on since I knit my first pair of socks back in April. I'm beginning to feel like knitting again, this calls for a slideshow. :)
