Taking 2nd LYS class and learned a nifty new trick to share with Knitblrs and Crochetblrs: Use teeny tiny rubber bands for disposable stitch markers!!! She suggested “braces” type, which I didn’t have laying around (I got my braces off 40 years ago… it just seemed like forever at the time!) But I had an inspired idea - those teeny tiny kiddie hair thingies - got a couple hundred for a dollar at The Dollar Tree. Perfection! No longer having to guess at where every 10th row m1R is… Just cut and remove during finishing. Also showing off Ginny pullover (pattern was for cardigan… but Red Pen Chick HAD TO be different - details of how to on my Ravelry project page)… Knit Picks Swish is da bomb - so soft and stood up to 3 redos of yoke and neck…. can’t wait for fall to see it on her!

io9 just drew our attention to not one, but two awesomelt amusing Tumblr sites: Slug Solos and Bass Dogs, both of which are curated by Michael M. As you can see from this selection of highlights, Slog Solos features guitarists playing their hearts out on gigantic slugs (and pairs well with a delicious Banana Slug Sucker). Over at Bass Dogs the bassists are keeping the groove going with unexpectedly musical canines held in place of their basses. Two more reasons we’re so very glad Teh Internets exist.

Follow them here on Tumblr at slugsolos and bassdogs. They both accept submissions too!

I hate when I misplace my glasses because then I’m forced to walk around looking like I’m suspicious of everything in the room

whattabout you, cabinet? huh, you sketchy piece of shit? did you take ‘em?

I’ll be excited when I teach the dog to fetch them… For now, she just looks at me as if to say, ‘Stupid human, find ‘em yourself’

I really love knitting, but my family likes to bug me about knitting “being for old ladies.”
Would anyone like to help me prove them wrong?
Reblog if you think knitting is rad and not just for old ladies!

My family had done the same thing until I just started to roll with it.

My mom took up knitting for a day (I was excited) but then quit because she said it was for old ladies.  I, on the other hand, have been knitting since I was 18! :p

I may be an ‘old lady’ now (I’m 55)… but I started knitting at 5 or 6 y.o. (I begged my gramma to teach me). It’s just as soul satisfying now as it was then. PBLTTTT on haters.

Finished objects and a mini lesson in color combination coordination… (saw this somewhere on the internet - it really works!)

Three Yipes Stripes Cowls (pattern by Anne Weaver)… and a black and white exposure to show why color sequence can really affect visual impact. Notice how the light green and the tan OR the orange and the brown are virtually indistinguishable without color… cool, eh? I think the first one I did (on the left) is my personal favorite… 

Yarn is Plymouth Galway 100% wool… such lovely yarn and there were a zillion colors to choose from. Got all three cowls from the five 200-yard skeins… with a little left over from each. The braids are surprisingly easy and would add such a nice touch to just about any project. I took some pictures in progress and will post a tutorial here for all of y’all…

Finished objects!

Two cowls using Yipes Stripes Cowl pattern using same 5 colors but in different sequence. Have enough to make one more… They go fast and the braid stitch bands are really cool but not too complicated!

Took a class to make them at my LYS in an effort to get to know other local knitters, but there is one REALLY obnoxious woman who dominates all conversation (not to mention interrupting anything useful the instructor had to say), so I’m wondering if I even want to go to the second class next week.

Also showing off 80 yards of absolutely stunning handspun, chain-plied Superwash BFL. The color is ‘Sentinel’ and is from Into The Whirled’s Fiber of the Month Club…I just want to hang it on the wall and drool on it! It’s odd to me - they send about 4 ounces every month - but the amount of yarn yielded seems to vary inversely to how much I love the results. I’m sure there’s a ‘scientific explanation’ - but it’s just not fair!

It’s a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar. Besides the always-welcome chocolate, what’s so awesome about that? Look again. It’s not a Hershey’s Bar at all. It’s a ‘Hirschy’s Bar' - a beautifully-designed, awesomely original resumé created by Michigan-based designer Matthew Hirsch for a class assignment.

"We had to create a thank you that could be sent to various creative directors who speak to our class," he explained. "In hopes of striking up a dialogue, while giving these creative directors information about my skill set, I created a Hirschy’s Bar."

Combining a bit of wordplay with innovative, elegant design and, of course, the gift of chocolate, seems like a fantastic way to distinguish oneself for prospective employers and clients. Just make sure you bring enough for everybody.
