pliz help: what should I do? wrong answers only :D
(no pictures, because it's white linen fabric wet with xantan gum on white poster paper in low light, and I didn't even try. just imagine you're on a low bandwidth connection and you're reading the image description here.)

Do you have any idea why it isn't layered as outer layer, buckram, heavyweight lining?

Natural linen would have probably been better than white¹, but oh well, in 200 years they are going to be yellow too :D and they will be trimmed with powder blue cotton
¹ yes, it's white³, the blue tint is courtesy of the vintage effect² in the pinephone camera :D
² no, it can't be turned off :D
³ and now I must look for a UV light to find out whether it's merely bleached or it also has optical whiteners, but I don't know where it is

Ci sarebbe qui sul fediverso qualcuno interessato a fare la stessa cosa, ma in italiano? ovviamente in un giorno compatibile per chi voglia partecipare anche all'originale.
#cucito #maglia #uncinetto #vitaSociale #FSVOVitaSociale :D
We did. I got what I needed. We payed.
And then just before leaving I noticed some nice woolens. And I may have taken a picture and sent it to my mother.
To be continued... :D

Content warning: eye contact, sewing
Today I've done all of the machine sewing, I only have to hemstitch all of the binding by hand (because I'm a masochist).
And this makes it three garments for which I have written instructions, taken pictures, and “only” need to edit those pictures and add them to instructions to be able to publish the pattern.

(and my collection of related PDFs has grown, and I really need to organize it somehow :D )
I've done the last machine seam on the flannel shirt¹, but I want to use the same blue thread to sew a pair of linen trousers for my SO. He's not going to wear them for a few months, of course, but I want to see if the pattern is correct, so they are high priority.
However, my mother has just finished a filet crochet yoke for a nightgown that I'm going to make in linen for myself. Again, not something that is going to be worn any time soon², but it's a quick sew and it will allow me to know how much leftover linen I have for another project. But it needs a different colour of thread in the machine.
The sensible thing would be to sew the trousers during the next week, and then sew the nightgown. Luckily it's also the lazy thing, so that's probably what I'm going to do.
Can you guess how much I'd want to change plans and start with the nightgown? :D
(there will be pictures of everything mentioned. one day. :D )
@sewing group #sewing
¹ lots of handsewing remains, but that takes a different time slot.
² unless I decide to wear it as a chemise, but even then in winter I don't really need a linen one.
Content warning: football world cup, misinfo
I've seen it in a dream.
There, now you know how it will end, so there is no need to watch any of the matches, and you can all boycott this world cup :)
Content warning: cibo, pane, italians talking about food in italian :D
non ci saranno foto.
però vi farò sapere se è un abominio, o se viene degno del Nord (detto con la voce di Rob Stark, ovviamente) :D
Some instances even hide the number of followers and people followed, and users can do so for their own account.
Even when it's visible, having a huge number of followers and following very few people is looked at as a oddity, and a sign of somebody who's probably not interested in interacting with people, and thus is not really part of the fediverse culture.
The converse is also true: users with almost no followers who follow a lot of people (unless they are really new) give a bad “bot” vibe, and people in the fediverse tend to be wary of them.
Having a reasonable number of both followers and people followed is seen as ideal.
This doesn't mean that you have to follow everybody who follows you! curating the list of people you follow is an important part of the fediverse experience, and you should only follow people whose posts are of interest to you and will make your life better. However I'd recommend giving at least a chance to everybody who follows you, looking at their profile and posts and consider whether you want to follow them.
And then, remember that unfollowing people is perfectly acceptable and requires no explanation: following somebody is not a long term commitment and consent can be given and taken away at any time.

luckily, my foot was quite far from the pedal, so the actual risk was minimal.
Yesterday evening I had planned to flat fell the sleeve seams, instead I've finished hemstitching the collar to the wrong side, and attached the back to the yoke.
Today I want to do the side seams by machine, as that's the last machine seam, and everything else will be done by hand.
The pattern is https://sewing-patterns.trueelena.org/historical_menswear/shirts/1880s_shirt/index.html , with a flat front instead of the pleats.

per la consueta chiaccherata serale: questa volta però abbiamo un tema:
il self-hosting git, ovvero come non dipendere da github, gitlab e altri
big per pubblicare il proprio codice.
Il piano della serata è ritrovo alle 20:30 su
https://meet.gl-como.it/GL-Como , convenevoli e breve cazzeggio e alle
21:00 precise precise si entra nel vivo e ci si scambiano esperienze e
consigli riguardo all'argomento della serata.
Non è detto che se ne faccia niente, ma partecipando si autorizza la
registrazione della call e la sua eventuale pubblicazione nel caso in
cui esca qualcosa di potenzialmente interessante anche per altri.
(ovviamente la parte cazzeggio prima delle 21 è esclusa dalla
except I was wrong, units *does* know about the talent, but only the Attic and the Aeginetan ones.
It's still missing the Babylonian one, which is the one I was looking for, but nevermind.
(also: 90 kg for an axe? 60 kg for the blade of a dagger? 300 kg carried by one person? I can see how one needs to be two thirds god to use this kind of equipment :D )
Content warning: rant on elastane
Mind you, I admit that elastane in knits is pretty useful, and it helps them do what it's in the nature of knits to do.
But wovens. wovens are supposed to be dimensionally stable, not elastic!
And who in their right mind has *ever* thought “this silk satin would be better if it had a bit of elastane in it”???
(I only had to cut a square, and I had to measure it something like 12 times)
Components: 2 33Ohm resistors in serie, 1 thick washer, some silicone sealant, some wire.
Componenti: 2 resistenze da 33Ohm in serie, 1 rondella un po' spessa, un po' di silicone sigillante e qualche cavo.
A bit less of 0.5W, enough for reaching 35 C - 38 C.
Poco meno di mezzo Watt di potenza, abbastanza per raggiungere tra i 35 e i 38 gradi.
does anybody know of instructions on how to light an oil lamp (the kind with vegetable oil) with flint and steel, and no matches (not even the old, non self-igniting, type with sulfur)?
I've found how to light fires (lots of resources), a couple of instructions on how to light candles that aren't going to work with a lamp, articles and videos about oil lamps in general, but nothing on the combination.
I can't believe that before the invention of sulfur matches people had to light a full fire (or ask some fire to the neighbors) in order to be able to light a simple lamp…

tagliatelo a pezzi, e seguite la vostra ricetta preferita della pappa al pomodoro, in quantità superiori al fabbisogno. Col pane con farina di mais dentro, perché THIS IS INSUBRIA.
Poi a cena prendete la pappa al pomodoro avanzata dal pranzo, metteteci dentro della trita di pollo, fatene delle polpette e cuocetele in padella, riciclando il piatto che è stato inventato per riciclare :D
E poi al pranzo dopo ci son le polpette avanzate dalla cena da scaldare al volo in forno :D
