Did You Know?
During the Victorian era, knitting became a staple of a well-bred woman. Queen Victoria is even reported to have been a fan of knitting herself. It was during this time that knitting wasn’t just restricted to plain yarn fabrics, but changed to involve bead and lace knitting. — Fallin
Yuri didn't know what being a steamed patron was but it sounded like it might be painful.

Greek Tragedy
November 5th, 1891 — Sanditon Resort; Menagerie Area
The destruction done by the hurricane was pretty horrible. There had been a lot of deaths and substantial damage done to his cousins resort. It was all so terribly sad. Would the Sanditon be able to bounce back from this? Considering there still seemed to be other visitors, the outlook was cautiously positive. He had walked through the resort and assessed the reparations that had been done thus far.

His friend had just moved here, too. He hoped it had not shaken the newly married couple too badly to have something like this happen so soon after they had wed and moved to the Sanditon.

Heading into the menagerie area, he went to check up on the golden snidgets. They had been especially in a tizzy after the events. One of the small, fat birds landed on his hand as it recognized him. They were such fragile birds that Pablo was being very careful.

Invitational: @J. Alfred Darrow

Alfred and Zelda had gotten off pretty lightly in the aftermath of the hurricane. Their home needed some repairs, but was structurally still sound, and the damage wasn't so severe that they needed to live elsewhere while they managed it. They were both healthy and uninjured, despite having been in the thick of things on the night of the storm. The biggest impact to them was going to be their finances — the repairs needed on the house would delay Alfred's winter sailing plans with the Voyager, which meant money would be a little tighter until spring than he'd anticipated, but overall they were still doing just fine. Zelda's Ministry income was stable regardless, and without any children they had few pressing monetary needs.

They were handling most of the repairs themselves. Zelda was good with spellwork, and Alfred liked working with his hands, and so while neither of them had a background in architecture they were well equipped to do the minimal work that needed to be accomplished. It was sort of nice to be handling things on their own, too — it made Alfred feel like the house was properly theirs, not just another feature of the Sanditon. He'd been replacing roof shingles that morning, and was taking a break now to walk off the growing ache in his back from being hunched over the roof for the past two hours. Alfred was walking aimlessly at first, but when he spotted Pablo in the menagerie he swerved that direction.

"I see how it is," he called sarcastically. "You come to check up on the birds before your nearest and dearest friend, hm?"
