Twisted Labyrinth

I'm an aro/ace knitter/crocheter/jewelry maker. I can be found on Tumblr as demoncat131. This is mostly a blog for the things I make but will occasionally include queer things and boosts of other peoples work.

Strawberries

So many of them, dripping overflowing

ripe, abundant. Fresh

friendly

Artist statement

as an artist my main criticism is that I have a very interesting life story. Alcoholism, drug abuse, obesity, and heart disease run on both sides of my immediate family. As if genetically I’m predisposed not to add up to much, and I’m supposed to settle with who I was born to be. The house fire is neither here nor there, the cancer scare, and the homelessness as well.

So many horrible things have happened to me, and my peers recommend me to explore these horrible feelings. And I did for a time, I made sad art, explored the depths of my profound anxiety and depression. I was not prepared to relive these emotions as vibrantly as I did. And to be honest people don’t look at you the same way when they realize you have a sad life, the overwhelming sense of pity was almost as bad as the depression. I don’t want people to feel bad about me anymore, I don’t want their pity. I displayed my profound sadness as an example to say “look! Look what I have accomplished despite all these sad things!” But how something is intended and how it is received are 2 different animals.

I don’t want people to pity me anymore, there’s nothing to pity. I am so much more than the sadness I have felt. I want to display my vitality, my intense romantic interest in Life. I want people to celebrate my ‘ups’ more than they pitied my ‘downs’, and I want them to do it with me. I want them to feel the soft security of my own abundance

my own freshness

and drown in the strawberry scented happiness I generate.
‘I want people to feel a sweeter sense of life after meeting me and my work

But my computer is. Well it mostly is. I also lost my job because they decided to fire everyone in my state because we were too "expensive to keep". Started a new job. Mostly trying to get up enough money to get a new desktop, which doesn't leave much time to blog. In fact this is the first time in 2 weeks I've even turned the computer on.

(Note not all pictures are current. Second note: * indicates knitting, ~ indicates crochet)

~ So, the first picture is of the cotton blanket I was making at work (then quarantine hit). It's farther along than this at the moment. Completed the three squares line, am about three squares in for the skein closest to the wall. Also, have two more of the tiny traditional squares. Yarn used is Coastal Cotton. I Will update with the current picture once I have everything laid out again.

* The second picture is the intarsia shawl, you can see why blue/stone is the color description. The nice thing about the intarsia construction is that I, hopefully, will have enough yarn to get a good length. There won't be any patterning on this one because I really do Not Want to try to figure out how that would work on my second attempt at intarsia.

~ The third is not something I spoke about before. It's a twin-sized blanket worked in the feather stitch. I can only do two rows at a time. Yarn used is Red Heart Ombre in Violet, True Blue, and Anthracite. The gray is for a border since I'm carrying the unused yarn up the side.

~ Four and five are in-progress squares for a scarf. Six is the complete scarf. Yarn used is Lion Brand Mandala color Troll, hook used is 6.00mm. The scarf has three chains at each corner and two rounds of hdc as an edging.

~ I have another scarf made in Mandala (same hook, color spirit) but for some reason, the picture is not cooperating right now. I think I need to re-size it.

* I don't currently have a picture of the green lace shawl, but I will in the next few days.

(My wi-fi card crapped out on me the first time I tried to post this -_-)

Internet connection is spotty

demoncat13

... but I should be posting pictures tomorrow.

demoncat13

Scratch that, my laptop is failing so I have no idea when I will be able to post pictures let alone be online for more than a few minutes at a time.


demoncat13

Getting a new laptop this week, so I'll have pictures once everything is transferred over, and of course, once I get my hands on the laptop.


demoncat13

Got the laptop! Pictures to come once I get everything transferred. I also have a few projects to post about.

Edit: The hard-drive is far too small, I'm a gamer, so my Uncle is giving me one with a bigger ssd hard-drive.


demoncat13

... My luck with computers at the moment is completely horrendous. This new laptop just died and I have no idea what happened. All I know is that it's a hardware problem, not a software problem. So I'm back on the old laptop that has spotty internet connection and half the time doesn't work. Hopefully I get this fixed at some point.


demoncat13

New!Broken laptop will be looked at on Monday. Hopefully, it can be saved.


demoncat13

According to the expert, its the power source that broke & the battery is weak. They took it to fix so I should have the new!laptop back soon-ish.

Scribble Flower

It is hard to say how long I spent drawing this. It was made over a few months, waiting in doctors' offices. I had a little sketchbook that I could bring with me, and I'd sit in the waiting room, and work on this a little bit at a time.

Later I put a digital color wash ovr it, to try and make certain parts of it stand out more, and to see what it was like.
