Ravelry is a really good source. Other than that, you want double pointed and circular needles. I learned how to make a hat on circulars but eventually moved onto double points because it made the finishing of it easier. Hats are really easy and fast. Mittens are pretty easy too but they come with a thumbhole which is quite easy as well.

I go through phases on knitting, at the moment I'm doing socks in West Yorkshire Spinners Fairylights (it's a seasonal yarn, I ordered it off ebay) and they're going to be so cute!

I usually work with thicker yarn and needles since I'm from Finland and that's what I was taught to do but I'm trying to get more ambitious and try working with different weight yarn and smaller needles.

>what gemstones do you find yourself gravitating towards, if any?
Dark blue sapphire.
>what motifs/themes do you tend to like?
I like geometric designs usually. I find overly literal representations of things (like flowers) to be corny.
>what metals do you prefer? Do you care about undertones when selecting metals?
Ideally platinum but it's pricy so I often go for sterling silver. Yellow gold is also pretty though I only wear it with certain outfits. My undertone is neutral/muted so all metals look pretty good.
>what cuts do you usually prefer?
Emerald, baguette, asscher, radiant.

Let's talk making new friends. I'm ashamed to say I have no good friends. We all moved away or drifted apart. Pre-covid I might have tried joining new activities, but now it's almost impossible to make new friends irl.

What can I try? Discord never worked for me, and Bumble Friends was a waste. I really want strong female friendships even if online, and feel kinda embarrassed I have no one.

Sorry if this is newfagging, but to second what >>202869 is saying, everyone here keeps mentioning woman-only Discord servers, but no one's saying where to look for them or how to find them. Is there a lolcow Discord somewhere?

No. 203556

I found the first one I joined through Ovarit. They required voice confirmation and a full interview process. Ended up joining other women's servers from members advertising in the original one (for more niche interests). Sorry, like everyone else I don't want to get doxxed or bring scrotes to women's spaces but if you do minimal searching you should be able to find some options.

I think there was a lc Discord at some point but it immediately devolved into a bunch of underage trolling and idiocy.

No. 203568

That honestly sounds perfect. I don't like going out too much either, the occasional stroll around town just chatting is perfect though. Watching a movie or reading together is also really nice.

I also just have convenience friendships, but for me it's also hard because I work from home and didn't go to university.

I'm considering picking a new place in my city every week and going there - like a museum or book store. I also like fitness so I can sign up to a club maybe.

What country are you in?

I've wanted to add more piercings to my ears for a long time but can never decide which type. I think it can look very pretty when done right but I'm wary of looking trashy and overdone. Perhaps just a second lobe piercing and a helix. Post about earrings and piercings here I guess!

Mine stay open for way longer than they're meant to, except when it comes to helix piercings. Though helix piercings have always given me trouble, painful bumps, hard to sleep on, then close up in no time if I try to take jewelery out to relive pressure on them. I just can't keep a helix but I know pretty pretty common.

No. 203515

Could you go back to your piercer and ask them to do it? The only thing is they might not put the new jewellery in unless it's the grade they usually use, in case it gives you irritation or something.

I have a really bad, mostly secret shopping addiction. I buy almost entirely designer clothing (I'm really stingy when it comes to eating out or vacations), and I spend a categorically retarded amount of money on it. I've successfully put off doing the math for a couple of years, but I finally got the courage yesterday and it's in the six figures…

Even thinking about that makes me feel weak and sweaty. I'm so fucking stupid, I could have paid for a house with that money. For someone reason I get fixated on one brand or one collection at a time, and I get autistic about getting individual pieces that I obsess over. I don't have any debt or family obligations (have been estranged since high school), and I make enough to cover my spending and not that much more.

I've tried to quit before, but it's never lasted for more than a week or so. It's hard when I'm like a magpie and need to have any shiny object that catches my attention, and films/television are filled with people wearing picturesque clothing. My bf knows about my problem, but no one else does and I'd be mortified if anyone found out I was this retarded. Idk what to do and am open to any advice.

No. 203251

I'm getting more and more depressed for some reason and I want to spend money to treat myself to whatever but I also promised myself I would stop buying things I won't use so I'm spending too much money on food delivery. Sometimes I think about the amount of money on things I bought when I started getting my own money and wasn't poor anymore and I get embarrassed and frustrated, I spent money on makeup I didn't even use or that weren't even my shade, the few things I used just disappeared from my room and I have no idea where I can find them anymore, I have such a hard time finding clothes my size that when I found some clothes that fit me I used to buy them and not wear them because they were either too basic or too ugly anyway, and there are so many books and video games I sold after not liking them that I got like 200 or 300€ back from that even though I sold them for very cheap last year. I'd say even if I'm doing better with spending money responsibly now it's not going to last very long.

No. 203274

I am doing a shopping free month, aiming for a year. I want to focus on hobbies instead of overspending on fashion. So far i have made it through a week. It kind of gives me a kick to not shop now, to look at my bank account and see that the money is still there.

>I'm shocked this gets so many accolades.
Same, this book is being recommended EVERYWHERE. Even among (radical) feminists, who in my opinion really should know better. I understand that the rest of the book might be extremely helpful, but it's weird that it's recommended without any disclaimer. Who knows what other harmful passages may be in it? I'm not for censoring works from the past in order to not offend current sensibilities, but since it's a book for victims of trauma, I wished there was some revised version specifically for patients. They don't deserve to be directly compared to their abusers. The med professionals can keep reading the original though kek. Or IDK, maybe a new book should be written based on the valuable content from The Body Keeps The Score and modern psychology research. I don't think that a self-help book with such harmful content should be considered a go-to material for trauma victims.

I can't relate on the stress of possibly being physically attacked in person, and I'm so sorry that you dealt / are dealing with that. I work customer service as part of my job online but sometimes I can't bare the idea of having to log in in the morning, I get stomach butterflies thinking about having to deal with bad customers. Last month I had a customer threaten to harass me and kept making new accounts just to throw insults. I've had therapy for childhood trauma but I didn't think something like my job would trigger my fear of being berated. I'm moving back home soon so I'm hoping I can take a few weeks off just to rethink what I want to do or how I'm going to handle it better.

Don’t read if you’re triggered by sexual abuse
Hey Nonitas
I was constantly subjected to sexual jokes by my father (bio father as I would like to call him), he would describe his sex life in detail to me (cheated on mom) when I was a minor, told me someday I would enjoy “dick” when I told him it grosses me out, made fun my gender ever since I was able to talk by calling me camel toe, and once he fondled my boobs and said they’ve grown a lot lately.

I think I’ve avoided rape solely because I’m not his type. He’s a narc and I’ve suffered tons of emotional abuse, he would often call me ugly and said he would never date a woman like me.

I’ve always brushed it off as emotional abuse but now I think I’ve had sexual abuse as well. What do you think?

No. 203134

Well he flat out grabbed your boobs and constantly made sexually charged comments at you. I'd say that's definitely sexual abuse.

No. 203472

Just a weird trigger I want to get off my chest.

Fucking vacuums. It's so stupid to me. I know why, and I understand why - growing up, my mom had a lot of chronic pains and issues with her back so she never did things like vacuum, she delegated that to me most of the time. So hearing the sound of a vacuum when I or my brothers weren't cleaning meant that she was awake and angry. She only ever vacuumed when she was angry.

I didn't even realize it triggered anything outside of the context of being at my parent's house until I spent the night with my friend when I was 17 and her mom vacuumed the floor above my friend's room. I can't even describe what it felt like, looking back. When I dissociate, it's like playing a VR game. Even while dissociating hard, I had to stay functional or else worse things could happen. But being in an environment that my brain perceived as "safe" - i.e., away from my mother, it's more like I stopped being able to rationalize anything. Those five minutes of vacuuming are engraved into my brain. I couldn't do anything. Luckily my friend and I had already chilled out for the evening at that point, her being on her phone and me hanging at the side of her bed looking out her window watching whatever last bit of dusk there was left. I couldn't think at all, and I was mortified that my friend would talk to me, and I wouldn't be able to talk back, or even understand what she was saying - but at the same time I couldn't even feel the fear I was experiencing. It's stupid to say, but it's like my entire existence was replaced with the sound of a vacuum upstairs for those five or so minutes. I kept trying to think and rationalize it, that I wasn't at home and this was my friend's mom, but I couldn't think. It's like I forgot language entirely. Desperately trying to cling onto some word, any word or sound, but nothing was there. Just what was around me, and that noise.

It's a ramble, but I don't know why I can't forget that. I've forgotten most all of what I experienced at the hands of my parents and still have a good relationship with them. Still very close with the friend in question, too. But that moment won't leave me, and as much as I hate how horrible my memory is, it's the one thing I want to forget. It's not even the worst I've felt due to things like dissociation or panic attacks. I don't know why it's stuPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
