Woot, 11,510 words of Merlin fic in seven days! Merlin fandom talk! )

I have a few new LJ and Dreamwidth friends (or subscribers or whatever!)! *waves*

I'm knitting a cabled scarf! I've never done cables before and it's not nearly as hard as I'd feared. Like, I thought I wouldn't be able to do this and watch movies at the same time, but it's been fine. I guess the one thing I don't like is that you have to use light colors for people to be able to see the cables, and I tend to like to wear dark colors and to buy yarn in dark colors. So I used this cable business as an excuse to buy some more yarn today, but it was cheap yarn so it's okay!

I sure have been watching a lot of TV lately. 2nd season of the new Dr. Who, 1st season Torchwood, and a bit of 1st season Farscape on DVD, and new episodes of Lost and Supernatural. The ones I'm the most excited about right now are probably Torchwood because of all the same-sex kissing and Supernatural because of the look on Dean's face when he lies. (OMG Dean.) Both of these shows are often gorier than I would like, but…well, most of the time when there's something I don't want to see I just look at my knitting. :)

Another problem is trying to watch new episodes of SPN. The only TV in our apartment is the very small one in my roommate's bedroom that doesn't get cable. Across town, my parents have a cable package with hundreds of channels and DVR, but it doesn't include the CW. What's with that? (At least they do get BBC America.) New SPN episodes air Thursday nights but they don't become available on cwtv.com until the following Tuesday, and by that time the fandom is pretty much done discussing, so I feel all disconnected. Which is probably fine, since I don't know how much I can ever connect with that fandom when I'm not interested in the two of them having sex with each other. Still, I would like to see those new episodes when they are really new!

I just read a great short fic about Zoe, post-Serenity: Remembered Stiches by [livejournal.com profile] an_sceal.

It was written for [livejournal.com profile] axial_tilt, a PG-rated multifandom fic exchange that was held in the spring. The mod is thinking about putting it on again this fall -- go fill out this poll if you're interested!

I started watching Stargate: Atlantis last night and I like it pretty well so far! I didn't like the pilot much at all – found it confusing and also boring, but it's also true that I was trying to figure out how to cast on to knit in the round for the first time while I had it on, and I kept screwing up and having to start over, so I wasn't in the best mood or giving it a lot of attention. After that I settled into knitting and purling and the show got funnier. I don't think it'll become one of my favorite shows but it's entertaining. (I'm trying to make a hat. We'll see how that works out.)

Is it okay to take knitting needles on a plane flying within the US these days?

ETA: The official answer is yes, but I think I might put them in my checked bag just to avoid any kind of hassle.
