Ulyana was finally able to find some blessed quiet time to herself. It was not easy to come by in the Weyr, least of all for a Candidate, but she managed well enough. She was not precisely notorious for her ability to sneak away to find quiet time, but most Candidates knew her as the girl that disappeared sometimes.
The peculiar, diminutive young woman found her way into the library, moving with feline-quiet footfalls through the space. She eventually settled on a cozy nook and settled in there after shedding her coat and a scarf. Ulyana unslung her bag and set it beside her, only to tug it open to allow her access to the contents within. She teased out a mass of material and straightened it out, revealing the bare beginnings of a scarf or shawl. At this stage, it was impossible to tell just what it was.
It was, however, a gorgeous blue and black, and the pattern it made was striking. She picked up the thread and readied her crochet hook - and, soon enough, the quiet Candidate was at work, head down and fingers working swiftly to bring the accessory into the world.
Of course, her work was interrupted periodically by the arrivals and departures of others in the library. There were also periodic questions, either by people who did not realize that she did not work in the library - or by those desiring some manner of scarf or shawl or blanket. Unfortunately for her, there would be no avoiding those sorts of questions; she'd simply chosen a poor spot to hide from the whole world.
