I can just about have a stab at Cyrillic, but not Hebrew. Spammers, know your audience!

Twice. We won’t talk about the first attempt (let’s just say watching a rather engaging film while picking up stitches isn’t the best idea I’ve ever had).
I’ve made marginal progress on Sakaki because it’s not TV-knitting and that’s all I’ve felt up to lately
