luuuxxx asked: So you don't believe that there is a purpose in all of this? I'm not saying that God is the purpose, but for religious people he's the reason of everything, the beginning and the end. As a non-religious person I find it hard to believe, so I was wondering if you think that this world we live in is all based on causality or if our path is already decided and, as Nietzsche said, that our life is a big eternal return and we will never get to chose.
I don’t believe in fate or that our path is decided. I believe there’s plenty of reason to live outside of Gods. There’s happiness and there’s the ability to do good and help others, there’s learning and the wonder of exploration and knowledge. Some people do live for God, but that’s not the only way to live. Some people do believe in fate, but I’d rather think that I get to decide what to do with my one, tiny life.

Trying to figure out what your style is isn’t as hard as it might seem. I’ve seen a lot of writers get asked questions like “how did you develop as a writer?” or “how did you find your style”, so I feel like this is a topic I should talk about. If you stop stressing…
Also, do you have any tips on staying focused when writing?
Find a workplace. Some people can only work efficiently in certain places. Certain environments will boost your productivity, while others will completely ruin it. Find the places where you’re the most…
Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)
