Working on… Something. No, not that. The other one. You know the one.
I know next to nothing about Benjamin Deeds, except that:
1. His name is Benjamin Deeds.
(1.5. His code name may end up being Morph according to the internets?)
2. He is openly gay, and this isn’t a big deal.
3. He made an appearance in one issue of X-Men Legacy.
4. He has emo hair.
5. He’s a shape shifter but not really and with serious limitations based on proximity to the person he’s becoming and overall accuracy? No, on second thought, I don’t know that one.
Somehow, despite this, or perhaps because of it, he is decidedly my favorite post-AvX mutant. Even more than that kid whose power is taking credit for stuff he didn’t do.

Tamari balls are a traditional folk art originating from china and japan. These hand embroidered balls were used as toys though now are mostly used for decoration.
Some mitt progress!
Me, I’m trying to catch up on my monstrous comic book pile. Somehow, every issue of X-Men Legacy has a moment that makes my eyes bug out, yet I put off reading the latest issue for weeks now. Not right.
great balls of dragon fire … Smaug ! … fabulous !!! … the knit hobbit !!
"roads go ever ever on,
over rock and under tree,
by caves where never sun has shone,
by streams that never find the sea;”
– bilbo baggins, the last stage
I concur with the name of that post. Holy yarn balls.
Look! It’s the product of my first attempt at spinning! (On a spindle which I also made!) Its not perfect, but it was made by me, and it is wool, so that’s good enough to satisfy me! I’m thinking it might be a beret once I get a chance to crochet with it.
Also, I didn’t sand the end of my spindle and it may have given me a splinter or two, which I suppose is very appropriate.
It’s lovely chunky yarn!
