So. Daily blogging, eh? Whose crazy idea was that?


I've spent today wondering about green woodworking. You know, carving stuff like spoons. And what I'd need to get started. Some of my lovely twitter chums have pointed me in the direction of various sites and books and stuff, and I'm really quite keen to get going.

Only trouble is that I have no credit/debit card at present, due to a slight problem with some...one hijacking my Steam account, which lead to me cancelling my cards just in case I had them registered.

Which, on reclaiming access to my account, of course I didn't. Oh well.

I'm also slightly concerned about buying knives and stuff for carving wood, having read that it's ever so slightly illegal to be carrying a knife around. Something to do with blade sizes and whether they lock or not.

HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO GET IT HOME FROM THE SHOPS?

Ahem.

Have also pledged $25 towards Amanda Palmer's Kickstarter project on the basis that it's a great idea. She's rather good too. Linky:

Am also v. tired from long bike ride yesterday. I'll try and work out how to link to the route we did, if anyone's interested.

Anyhoo. Hi! *waves*

I think you're allowed to carry a knife home from the shops, but if you decide to take it out on a walk after dark whilst wearing a hoodie you might be thought to be up to no good. So practice your honest and innocent face and it will be fine. If you have a permanently dodgy up-to-no-good expression then you're out of luck, I guess.

Knife in retail packaging probably fine, on the basis that the new kitchen knives I bought recently were so well sealed it took me 6 hours and an angle grinder to get into them (nearly) your average hoodlum would find their victim had gotten bored and wandered off before they could be used in an unpleasant way

So, a sub-3" folder should be ok? Looking at an Opinel no.6 which has a 7.5cm blade. It locks though
